The Nerdy and the Dirty (A Review of B.T. Gottfred’s Book)

I found it thrilling to read a book in which the girl was the oversexed pervert and the boy was completely uninitiated in the ways of the hormonal world. In my mind, Penelope wasn’t so much “dirty” as she was a replica of my seventeen-year-old self. I thought about sex a lot in high school (Who am I kidding? I still think about sex a lot). And I remember the social stigmatization that surrounded girls who didn’t hide their erotic urges behind an aura of false innocence. Luckily, my slutaceousness was curtailed by the fact that, for most of high school, I had a boyfriend. He was older and didn’t go to school with me, which took our relationship outside the sphere of Mean Girl scrutiny.
