Editorial Reviews

Review

The New York Times Like Dorothy Parker, Ms. Heimel is an urban romantic with scathing X-ray vision that penetrates her most deeply cherished fantasies.

Roy Blount, Jr. No boy should go out with a girl until she has read this book. It goes without saying that he should read it, too. I'm not bragging or anything, but I read parts of it twice.

Michael Goldberg San Francisco Chronicle This book (like sex itself) is both funny and serious, which is why it's such an instant classic.

Liz Smith Cynthia [Heimel] is one of the authentic new humorists of our time, plus she is nice, sensible, your true sister under the skin. Sex Tips for Girls is for everyone, even boys, and nobody said older women shouldn't read it either. Thank God!

Emily Vernon New York Daily News Heimel here is funny, smart, sympathetic, vulnerable, perceptive, and witty.

Michele Ross The Atlanta Journal Read this book. Please. It's the funniest, sassiest, truest book about men and women on the market.

About the Author

Cynthia Heimel is the author of seven books and numerous columns and articles. She lives in Oakland, California, with her boyfriend, his son and too many dogs.

It's still quite a fun read.
R. K. Storey
She matters because when you read her you want to hang out with her - if you're a guy you want to date her and if you're a chick you want to cruise with her.
Julius
And it is very funny; laugh-out-loud, read-it-to-your-friends-and-neighbors-even-boyrfriend, funny.

I first read this book about ten years ago not long after I had graduated from college. My eye was caught by a rather provacative cover. I randomly picked a page and before having finished the first paragaph, was laughing out loud. I quickly chose another section of the book and likewise was again laughing out loud.
Moreover, her understanding of my sex was uncanny. There was great pleasure knowing that a woman so unearringly
had captured the masculine psyhe. For years afterward when I would find myslef in a difficult phase in a relationship, I would reread the book. This never failed to give me faith
that is was possible for a man and woman to truly umderstand each other.

Format: Paperback
In the fit of a boy depression, a very good friend, and
fellow chick, handed me this book. I expected sappy,
slightly erotic stories. I got not only good advice, but
an instant pick me up that works still.

Heimel writes for no generation of women but for all real
women. If you want it all, but know you'll never be able to
handle it, or if you want to get married and have kids, but
know you'll keep your sense of self along the way, this is
for you. It's not for those out there who loose themselves
in relationships (and like it), but those who want reminders
on how not to do that.

It's also good for those times when dating seems just too
much. Read this and you'll remember what it's all about.

I bought a box of books from auction and found this one among them. As I was sorting out the books, I had the curiousity to start reading this one. Well, I totally forgot I was sorting out other books and got myself totally immersed in reading "Sex Tips for Girls". The tips are written with humor but with great emphasis with the importance of the subject. The only other tip the book did not mention is let your husband/boyfriend read it as well. My husband love this book more than I do :-).

Format: Paperback
This book was ground-breaking when it first appeared in 1983. Seventeen years later, Heimel still matters. She matters because what she says is important, and it's also funny. She matters because when you read her you want to hang out with her - if you're a guy you want to date her and if you're a chick you want to cruise with her. Heimel even has guidelines on when a guy can say "chick". Her work marks a highwater mark in the war between the sexes - rarely have such sensitive issues been addressed with such grace and wit - Heimel Rules! - Julius, NYC

Delicious blend of decidedly helpful advice and dirty (yet delightful) interspersions of fun! She makes the uneasiness about even the purchase of a book entitled "Sex Tips..." disappear. Overall, wonderful tips in a cute style!

This book should be required reading for every woman on the planet who even THINKS she may have sex with a man! I've used the tips myself and the segment on 'How to be Blindingly Beautiful' was dead on!
I just have one tip to add: don't lend your copy to ANYONE! I just bought my third copy and this time it's not leaving my house!

12 of 17 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on January 5, 2000
Format: Paperback
Heimel writes in an irreverant, quirky style which makes for an entertaining read. Some of the advice, however, seems impractical and outdated (condoms are condemned and the diaphragm is upheld as the best birth control). The Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll Diet which extols the virtues of cocaine and quaaludes seems straight out of the early 80's drug-chic culture. Helen Fielding seems to emulate Heimel's characteristic burned out, sexually jaded woman in Bridget Jones Diary. It's not nearly as naughty as the cover suggests but, in the end, is a lighthearted romp through sex and dating.
