Sex Secrets of an American Geisha: How to Attract, Satisfy, and Keep Your Man by Py Kim Conant is a modern woman’s guide to finding a “Good Man” using a combination of techniques from the Japanese geisha and Korean kisaeng. According to Conant, her system will have the single reader married within twelve to eighteen months. Married readers can utilize her advice to maintain happy, successful relationships with their spouses.
Conant shares her own journey of self-discovery at the age of thirty-four, the age when she finally moved out of her parents’ home. After numerous rejections from prospective boyfriends and two failed long-term relationships, she began to question her aggressive approach to matters of the heart. This inspired her personal transformation into an “American Geisha.” Taking on the role of “Older Sister” geisha, she takes the “Younger Sister” reader under her wing as she recounts what she believes to be relationship essentials.
The essentials that Conant shares are as simple as waking up ten minutes early to style your hair and as complicated as helping your Good Man to find the legendary “G-spot” (a detailed anatomy lesson is included). Conant advocates boosting the Good Man’s delicate ego by lavishing praise upon his ability to satisfy you, while never denying him. All are a part of geisha trade secrets for maintaining devoted clientele. The reader is offered intimate access into the relationship between Conant and her husband, Richard.
Published by Hunter House Publishers, Sex Secrets of an American Geisha is Py Kim Conant’s first book. The chapters are short and easy to follow with elegant Japanese artwork interspersed. Conant narrates with a casual honesty that she openly admits is far from politically correct. In her view, women should reserve feminism for careers and life in general but fully develop their femininity when it comes to love and sex. Though she has a devout following of admirers (see her MySpace page), Conant’s vision of demure, obedient women is not for everyone. Staunch feminists may find her advice offensive, which she also openly admits. She asks the reader to approach her methods with an open mind.
