The Sisters of APF by Zane

The Sisters of APFby Zane
rating: 3 stars

back cover:Mary Ann is the daughter of a chicken farmer from South Dakota. She has never been more than fifty miles from home and has led a sheltered life. By the time she goes off to college in Washington, D.C., she has been intimate with only one man -- her high school sweetheart. The resident manager of Mary Ann's dormitory, Patricia, befriends the country bumpkin. She finds Mary Ann amusing, but also senses something intriguing about her, hidden under the surface. After Mary Ann becomes smitten with Trevor, the campus playboy, Patricia is determined to show Mary Ann how not to be a victim, but rather how to outdo the players and heartbreakers. She indoctrinates Mary Ann into the ranks of the sexiest secret society ever: the sisters of APF.

I found this book a bit interesting and it certainly brought the emotions. Mosty frustation. The book is suppose to be about women letting go their sexual inhabitations and owning their bodies. I am all for that. The characters in this novel were sluts and actually I don't have a problem with that either. It is anyone choice to sleep with however many people they chose. The problem I had with this book is the way the women had no problems cheating on the boyfriends or husbands as well as no qualms about whether the men they are sleeping with at the orgies are in relationships. That to me is not a sexual revolvolution but common slut actions. 

To be sexual free is to be honest with the people you are sexually involved with. And to be an adult is to be responsible and respectful to yourself as well as those around you. To me that respect extends to other people relationships. Yes, I did like the book overall but I will probably not read it again.
