Traces the author's early descent into promiscuity in the aftermath of her parents' divorce, her struggles with an addiction to both sex and male attention, and her later efforts to stop making desperate choices in order to allow love into her life. 60,000 first printing. Reprint.
Licensed psychotherapist Kerry Cohen tells the story of her sex addiction, an insatiable craving for carnal attention from men that first began when she was only eleven years old. The memoir's lurid details are counter-balanced by Cohen's incisive analysis of her own psychology and the step-by-step process of rehabilitating her self-esteem. LOOSE GIRL serves as a cautionary and compassionate tale of the dark underbelly of the adolescent appetite for attention and love.
