Erotic Capital: The Power of Attraction in the Boardroom and the Bedroom

Erotic Capital: The Power of Attraction in the Boardroom and the Bedroom

Catherine Hakim

during this daring and arguable ebook, Hakim explores the functions and value of erotic capital, hard the disapproval meted out to girls and males who use intercourse attract get forward in existence. Social scientists have paid little severe cognizance to those modes of private empowerment, regardless of overwhelming proof in their significance. In Erotic Capital, Hakim marshals a trove of study to teach that instead of degrading those that hire it, erotic capital represents a robust and in all likelihood equalizing tool—one that we scorn merely to our personal detriment.
