Sherry Argov’s book Why Men Love Bitches has sold millions of copies since its debut and has tons of reviews, most of them positive. It even had a resurgence in interest recently, so I thought I’d read through it for myself. In this episode, I break down the introduction and first chapter and the author’s four attraction principles. As you listen, you’ll discover why I feel the way I do about Argov’s work regardless of the nuggets of truth within her book.

1:53 – Why I wanted to start this potential podcast series

6:37 – Something weird about the book’s author 

12:06 – Some of my initial reactions while reading through the book

15:45 – How I feel about Argov’s description and use of the word “bitch”

17:58 – Why I’ve started backing off of using the terms “feminine” and masculine” 

23:06 – The main message from the men interviewed for the book

26:17 – An example of how the author muddles her message

29:25 – Why I find the first chapter of the book objectifying and trope-y

36:22 – Attraction principle #2 and why it isn’t conducive to an equal partnership

40:14 – The #1 thing men said they needed from a woman and my perspective on it

42:13 – A bitch’s availability and the weird inclusion in section three of chapter one

47:22 – My feelings on the difference between the two types of bitches (according to Argov)

51:54 – The absurdity of attraction principle #4 and “Samantha’s” story

57:16 – Why I think this book has had a recent resurgence of interest
