Dirty Little Secrets
Breaking the Silence on Teenage Girls and PromiscuityBook - 2011
From the author of Loose Girl
From the author of the provocative hit memoir Loose Girl, this is an eye-opening look at the dangerous, secretive world of today's adolescent girls who use casual sex as a means to prove their worth-to boys, to friends, and to themselves. Cohen examines how we got to this point, where young women use male attention like a drug and why they keep going back, even though the behavior is often self-destructive. Featuring current research and interviews with over 70 girls, this is a wake-up call for parents everywhere that's not to be missed.
Praise for Loose Girl:
"Cohen's brutal honesty and her relentless quest for companionship is refreshingly relatable." -Entertainment Weekly
"A perfect companion book to Mary Pipher's Reviving Ophelia. Together, they are must-reading for anyone who has ever known, or been, a teenage girl." -Buffalo News
