Sleeping Around

LoveReading View on Sleeping Around

Sex, lots of it, but strangely not really titillating for being factual it has a practical, sex manual feel to it and you can tell the author is a journalist. She writes a column for The Independent on sex and much of her research comes from her own exploits. However it does have a sort of searching for Mr Right story and a genuinely surprising twist. Good fun, humorous, light-hearted and very instructional.

Sarah Broadhurst

Sleeping Around Synopsis

'I relish every second of my sexual encounters: the good, the bad, the bizarre. Most of my serious relationships have started out as one-night stands.'

Catherine Townsend describes herself as `part slut, part hopeless romantic`. Her quest is to have her cake and eat it – an intelligent dinner date followed by a passionate one-night stand; to combine sleeping around with finding a soul mate.

Sex in the City meets Girl With a One Track Mind in this candid, sexy, funny take on looking for love in unexpected places and how to find Mr Right – or at least Mr Right Now.
