Women's lack of sexual assertiveness, particularly early in relationships, is one of the few areas to remain relatively untouched by feminist ideology. This work reveals the effects this passivity in courtship and relationships has on women's sense of themselves, their self-image, concern with their appearance, and their disgruntlement with men. Looking at female fantasy, date rape, masochism, male responses, the media, and drawing on literature, interviews and research, the book exposes the women's magazine industry, and finally suggests ways in which women can take control of their courtship rituals to become more assertive in all areas of their lives.
