Helen Gurley Brown's 'Sex and the Single Girl’ – 50 years on - TelegraphBy Sarah Vine for the Daily Mail. When Helen Gurley Brown published her book Sex And The Single Girl in , it sold two million copies in the first three weeks and shot straight to the top of the bestseller lists. A frank and often funny account of what it felt like to be a career girl at the dawning of the sexual revolution, it became a manual for the Mad Men generation of females: educated, ambitious, sexually adventurous - and keen to shake off the shackles of marriage and domestic drudgery in favour of cocktails at seven and bed with the boss. The central premise of the book was that women should own their sexuality and use it to their advantage rather than sit patiently waiting like good little wallflowers for a man to pick them. Sex was power, and if you were going to give it away you should expect more in return than a washing machine and an upright Hoover. Used well, it could take a woman to new heights, not just of pleasure but also material success. Gurley Brown took the whole idea of sex in the workplace and turned it upside down.
