About the Author

Judy McGuire has been advising the lovelorn for more than a decade, writing
a column called “Dategirl” for the Seattle Weekly, among others. She has a degree in criminology and has worked as an anthropologist, studying heroin addicts in New York City. She’s written for everyone from High Times to Time.com.

More About the Author

Judy McGuire has a long history with sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. For the past 12 years, she's been writing "Dategirl," a sex and love advice column for the Seattle Weekly. Despite rarely imbibing in anything more intoxicating than a nice pinot noir, she was a managing editor at High Times, freelances for TheFix.com and worked as an ethnographer on a study of heroin use in New York City. As you might imagine, there was a lot of rock 'n' roll crossover in all these jobs.

Judy's first book, How Not to Date (Sasquatch Books) was published in 2007. Huffington Post called it "One of the ten most underrated humor books of the past few years." She's been a columnist at The Frisky, Time.com, New York Press, and Men's Fitness, and has contributed features to Cosmopolitan, ForbesTraveler.com, Vibe, Bust, Paper, Time Out, and Complex, among many, many others.

In addition to writing, Judy also co-hosts The Mike & Judy Show on the Heritage Radio Network (http://www.heritageradionetwork.com/programs/65-The-Mike-Judy-Show) and like everyone and their mother, she has a blog: www.dategirl.net.

Such a wealth of information- I cannot believe the amount of research that must have gone into this book. Another example of the author's wonderful sense of humour providing us with entertainment and knowledge. Keep the writing coming, Ms McGuire!

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By MIKE EDISON on September 25, 2012
Format: Paperback
Let it be known that I work closely with Judy McGuire on a weekly radio show and know how smart and funny she is... but this book was a complete revelation in just how hard she is willing to work to turn the Holy Trinity of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll on it's pointed little head!!! THIS BOOK IS NOTHING SHORT OF A SEXY DRUGGY EPIPHANY and among the most hilarious things I have ever read!! Every page is funnier than the one before it - tho let me just say right now that the Lovemaking TIps from Mötley Crüe and the Tips for Sober Living from OZZY were among my faves. Oh, and KEITH RICHARD's bit about scoring smack... who ever thought that heroin could be so funny?? McGuire's genius is telling it all matter of factly and letting the retrograde rockstars hang by their own spandex loin cloths... mention should also be made of artist CLIFF MOTT's amazing cartoons that pepper the book. Look the cover to get an idea... besides the usual classic rock casualties there are Snoop Dogg, Elvis, strippers, porn stars... seriously this is more fun than a book ought to be. Like a Saturday morning Cartoon for adults. Jam packed with eye-popping facts,- where did she even find half this stuff?? Oh my, she set the bar high.... RECOMMENDED for anyone not afraid of the PC police. Buy it and amaze your friends.
