Editorial Reviews

Karrine Steffans is not inclined to take half measures. When this music video performer and former porn star appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show, her press release proudly described her career as "a full-time booty shaking, breast baring dancer." In this book, the author of Confessions of a Video Vixen and The Vixen Diaries shares her secrets for romantic and erotic success, from meeting the man you want to giving him what he wants again and again. The Vixen Manual includes tips on meeting sexy, stable men; super-seductive flirting; catering to your lover's ego; and going the distance when it matters. A steamy tutorial.

I came across this book today while shopping for a birthday gift for a friend. I noticed the book perched up in a modest display overshadowed by more popular, well known authors. I had no idea K. Steffans had even written another book. I read it about 2 hours and was disappointed to say the least. This book doesn't tell or teach you anything you haven't heard before in life unless you've been living under a rock! Yup, there's no profound or newly revealed information nor does she tell you how to suck a mean one. A quick run down? Take care of yourself in and out. Keep a clean house. Take care of your man. Pay attention to detail. Don't lose yourself in relationships. Sex is a beautiful thing when you're in control of yourself and your life. Duh, right??? Yup, nothing new I haven't been doing for years. It's her version of Steve Harvey's book "Act Like A Lady...". It's a redundant "guide" basically telling you most things that are considered common sense if you've made it that far in life (over the age of 21). Or if you've had a pretty decent upbringing then this book is just a compilation of all the things Mama, Grandma, and Auntie told you about. There's even illustrations of simple sexual positions (missionary, 69, etc.) as if you'd never seen them before. Did Karrine really think she was dropping knowledge?! She tries to come across as having "been there, done that and now I'm teaching you" but doesn't quite pull it off. She does say she's no saint and who is she to be teaching about healthy relationships and blah blah blah but it's almost like she's just adds that just because she knows people will say that. In short, the book was a total snooze and just another attempt at K. Steffans trying to cash in on what she thinks is a successful manipulation of the masses. Well not me, a leopard doesn't change its' spots! I think it's great that she accomplished her goal of writing a book however she missed the mark. Ladies, save your dough and spend it on the manis and pedis Karrine tells you to treat yourself to from time to time...or didn't you already know that? Thank God for return policies.

I was disappointed as well as offended with this read. The title is misleading. "The Vixen Manual" is more about sexual choices and exploits than a guide or manual. It does not include the impact of learning as in changing directions, benefiting from experiences or sincere investment in emotional maturity. Therefore, instead of being instructive, it becomes a journal of experiences where the choices of the author are left to be evaluated by the reader. The same would be expected if this was autobiographical of a madame. "The Vixen Manual" is degrading to women (honorable) and reduces their role to exploitation by men as if they have no intrinsic value but are ascribed value according to their sexual acumen. Men have been degrading women for years; it's truly sad when a woman does it to other women. Reviewed by: Gail

Synopsis: The Vixen Manual combines self help, how to advice, sex tips, and humor. The book is divided into fifty short chapters and five main parts: (1) Being Single, (2) How to Attract Him, (3) How to Engage Him, (4) How to Release Him, and (5) Maybe It's You. Don't read Karrine's manual for revolutionary concepts, instead compare her advice to what you've heard and learned over the years. Review: Some statements from The Vixen Manual reminded me of advice I'd received from my grandmother with a twist. Being Single covers the basic attitude and approach towards dating, love, and men. Karrine describes the concept of the "dance card" of the 18th century and discourages women from being too quick to commit to one man which is an inefficient use of scarce time. Karrine's advice is similar to the "collect and select" suggestion that I'd heard from my grandmother. But Karrine adds her own twist to this: collect men, rank them using a written list, and let them know how they compare. But be careful not to throw casual sex into the mix because women are wired to feel an emotional connection to our sexual partners. Similarly, in Chapter 10, Preparation Meets Opportunity, Karrine recommends that any single woman looking for love should prepare for her man now - get fit, keep your place neat, and act as though you're in love and you'll attract the man that you want. She does point out that getting ready extends beyond your looks to cover educational, financial and emotional preparation. Though this advice isn't new, it is useful and surely can't hurt. It's easy enough to procrastinate on your fitness regimen or other aspects of our lives and we all can do with the gentle reminder to take good care of all aspects of yourself. The advice is interspersed with humor. For instance, "Dating Younger Men" has tips like "Check ID when dating someone significantly younger and be sure you're not breaking any laws" and "Never hang out with him and his friends. You are a cougar; see him only in your den." Similarly, the chapter "How to Handle Rejection" listed the things you should not do and watch out for, such as, "you don't want to wind up having your voice mail played over and over to a room full of his buddies as they knock back beers and laugh at what a loon you are...think of every message you leave as a potential sound bite that can work against you." I should mention that the chapter on Sex has quite explicit instructions and diagrams of various recommended techniques. While some advice predated the women's lib movement, Karrine Steffans is likely to be laughing all the way to the bank. Publisher: Grand Central Publishing (July 13, 2009), 272 pages.

I got a lot out of this book. It's got some good tips about how to meet the men you want to meet--and leave the jerks alone--and what to do once you meet them. It's taught me how to come out of my shell and go for it. I really liked this one.

I have read the VM, and I must tell you guys that it is not what many of you may be pondering, however; there is alot of useful information that can aid any woman (young/old). Mrs. SM has definitely displayed her grown ass woman (had to say it) in this piece. Mrs. SM is basically reminding us about the things that "some" of our mothers told us in our earlier years, you know, when we thought we knew it all?, yeah I know, me to... Mrs. SM has put the truth right in our hands; so if you ladies still can not get it together after this, then your problem may require more than a best selling authors memoirs(hint)... opposing viewpoints welcomed

This has to be one of the best relationship manuals ever written! All though with its racey cover and title i would NOT put it on my coffee table i know that when i have a daughter and she grows up i will try and instill most of this advice in her. Knowing Karrine Steffans reputation some of you reading this may think i'm crazy but this book is NOT what you think it is. Instead of being trashy and filled with skankish "blow by blow" instruction on every page (pun intended) it really focuses on the woman being complete and confident in herself first before seeking a mate. Something i think 99% of women do not do. If this review does not convince you to buy and read the book take this piece of advice from the book with you. NOBODY CAN AND SHOULD BE BURDENED WITH THE TASK OF COMPLETEING YOU! Before you can have a meaningful relationship you have to treat yourself well! Great book i'm insisting my sister and all my girlfriends read it. I think this book is simply AMAZING.

I thought this was a good read. Not that there's anything in this book that you probably don't already know but sometimes we all need to be reminded of life's very simple truths. I love how she speaks to the readers as if we're all old friends. I could definitely see her saying everything in the book like we were old girlfriends catching up over coffee. This book just reinspired me to get on with my purpose and when love comes I'll be ready...I recommend this book for any young woman just starting out who may not be able to speak to any other older women about men and life or for someone like me who's in their 30's but needed to be reminded of life's simple lessons...
