"[Cohen] seeks to identify the loose girl experience and help girls gain power over their own lives."
"Cohen (Loose Girl, 2008) returns to her signature subject: teenage girls and promiscuity...Smashing statistics, ferreting out falsehoods, and exploring a multitude of reasons behind why girls use sex to prove their worth, Cohen calls for us to "transform the culture when it comes to teen girls and sex"."
"Ms. Cohen's Dirty Little Secrets is a perfect catalyst for mother/daughter discussions. It is a safe place to start a scary talk about this issue so relevant to young women-and young men...At its heart, Dirty Little Secrets is a wake-up call. Settle in, relax, and embrace its shocking content."
"Serves as an engaging catalyst for discussions about a taboo issue."
"Dirty Little Secrets is eye-opening, insightful, and definitely an exercise in self-reflection. Most importantly, it's a conversation starter for a talk that's been a long time coming."
"A strong beginning to an important conversation. An important book for feminist and social science collections."
"Includes first-hand accounts, discussion questions for school counselors and parents, behavior assessments, and resources for teens and parents about sex and relationships."
