According to Wolf, promiscuous is a word that holds within it the mixed message girls today are given about sex: Youre promiscuous if you do anything, but you are a prude if you do nothing. Thus, still polarized on the spectrum between virgin and whore, adolescent girls are allowed little information and even fewer healthy outlets for their normal sexual desires. Wolf shatters the illusion that good girls and professional women are not sexual, and boldly embarks on redefining female sexuality outside of mens experience and assumptions. Wolfs own coming of age in the post-sexual revolution of Haight-Ashbury, serves as an evocative tool for revealing the naked and admirable truth of female sexuality.
