Representative Quotes:

“In an encounter with a male, [the English woman] is apt to be overly aggressive, to act too masculine, and nothing cools a lovesick swain faster than a woman who wears pants.” (page 39).

“German women treat sex mechanically, submitting to it with the same pragmatic air that an engineer might use to survey a building’s girders.” (page 41).
