Reading Is Sexy: What French Women Know About Love, Sex and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind


Reading Is Sexy: What French Women Know About Love, Sex & Other Matters

It’s not their shoes, scarves or lipstick.  It’s this:  French women don’t give a damn.

Debra Ollivier

I’ve always been enamored by French culture – the language, the food, the fashion, the kisses – I love it all!  So, when I received What French Women Know About Love, Sex, and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind, I dove right in as if I were going to find out the secrets of the fountain of youth. When I think of French women, I think of stylish, sexy women who eat whatever they want but are always looking tres chic. Who wouldn’t want to know the secrets of French women?

What French Women Know did not disappoint.  It was a very quick read and was written by Debra Ollivier, an ex-pat American woman who married a French man and relocated to Paris.  As an American woman in Paris, she was able to distill the differences between French and American women so that we Americans could get a little bit of that je ne sais quoi.

Ollivier discusses all facets of life –  men, love, fashion, cuisine, motherhood – and lets us in on the belief systems that reveal themselves through French womens’ actions.  It was refreshing to see a different approach to life – one that embraced the positive and the negative – and spurred women to enjoy life to the fullest.  I really enjoyed What French Women Know About Love, Sex, and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind, and I will definitely be making some adjustments to the way I think and behave.  What French Women Know About Love, Sex, and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind is available for sale on Amazon.com.
