City Pulse

By Gillian Weeks

You’d have known this was coming if you knew your pop music. The ladies have been belting this out to a synthesizer for decades: women love sex. They like to groove. They wanna get it on. Give a listen to the Divinyl’s “I Touch Myself,” or, more recently, Christina Aguilera’s “Drrty” (that’s right – with two R’s). Or Patti Labelle, who put it best when she queried, “voulez-vous coucher avec moi?” The female gender has been hot to trot ever since Salome let the pelvis do the talking.


Melinda Gallagher and Emily Scarlet Kramer of CAKE restate this bold thesis in their new book and do us one better: a how-to guide for making the most of your sultry side. The Hot Woman’s Handbook provides “insights, diagrams and erotic stories, providing the why-to alongside the how-to for today’s hot woman.” This isn’t your mother’s sex manual (perish the thought). This handbook goes there in a way that Cosmo never could. This Valentine’s Day, give yourself a gift that’s bound to bring a smile to your face. Your inner – or outer – vixen will thank you.

Available at most bookstores or directly from the publisher at Amazon.
