    Sex In The Workplace

    Dear Lennie, why is it that if you're an attractive business woman business men have such a hard time doing business. I'm finding that there are men that seem to think business and sex should go hand and hand? Im starting to wonder if its just me or do more women go through this? Frustrated

    Dear Frustrated:

    That is SUCH a common problem. Back in the '50s it was acceptable to be overt about these kinds of things (ever watch the show Madmen?)... now it's politically incorrect, but it still remains very prevalent. The women who know how to work their sexuality subtly in the work place seem to excel at business. You either have to be sexually promiscuous or a ball-busting, unfeminine "hard" businesswomen to succeed. It's crazy. I feel your pain, girl. But, unfortunately, I don't think there is an easy solution. If it were me, I would just call the men on it and make them feel awkward.  Say something like "Are you inferring that if I have sex with you, you'll do business wtih me, because that's what you are projecting to me." and maybe that will put them in their place. Hang in there.
