La Seduction


I started reading La Seduction by Elaine Sciolino last week. So far I've only managed to get through the first five chapters and I know I should give it more of a chance, but I'm finding it...well...tedious.

Though I have learned a few things.

For instance, according to Ms. Sciolino, there is rampant, out of control use of the verb séduire in France.

I learned that French men have several different ways to kiss a woman's hand, an act called a baisemain. Apparently one of them, the effleurer, is an invitation for sex.
Of course I have to wonder if it really works?

And most importantly, never, ever take marriage advice from Inès de la Fressange. Pin It
