San Gabriel, CA: American Family and Femininity Institute, 1969. First Edition. Octavo. Magenta cloth, titled in silver on spine and front cover; 318pp; illus. Includes bibliography. Fine, unworn copy in barely edge-rubbed dustwrapper; Near Fine. A thorough guide to developing and exercizing one's feminine wiles, with chapters devoted to such topics as "Eroding the Man's Wall of Reserve, While Sustaining His Manly Pride;" "Enticement: Arousing His Dawn of Interest In You;" "Cherie Goddess Makes Her Dreams Come True;" etc. With numerous text illustrations clearly inspired by the work of Margaret Keane. The authors were the proprietors of the American Family and Femininity Institute. Scarce and weird.
