Sex and the Single Girl is a best-selling book by Helen Gurley Brown, published in 1962. Vaguely autobiographical, it encouraged women to actively pursue a full single life, which included acquiring a career, gaining financial independence and accepting one's looks. Of course, dating tips were also included.

It was turned into a film[1] in 1964 starring Natalie Wood.

The movie and its film adaptation were a later inspiration for the 2000s hit book turned television series, Sex and the City. The book, by Candice Bushnell, revolved around single thirtysomething city dweller, Carrie Bradshaw, a Helen Gurley Brown icon played by Sarah Jessica Parker.
