JAMES Bond creator Ian Fleming was wary of female drivers — and those looking for casual sex, a notebook of his musings reveals.
The writer and ex-intelligence officer made the jottings as he penned 007 adventure You Only Live Twice in 1962.
Among his observations was a 13-point guide on how to live.
It included the less-than-PC advice: “Beware of motorcars with two women in the front seat.”
He also suggested steering well clear of women who wear a bracelet on their left ankles — widely thought to be a come-on to anyone looking for casual sex or extra-marital affair.
The 39-page notebook, has emerged for sale in the US today.

His warnings, however, are not just confined to women, as he suggests: “Tread carefully in the company of moustaches, sideburns, or beards.”
Fleming, the wealthy son of an MP, appears none too keen on the ruling class, saying: “Avoid people who call you ‘Old Boy’, and all politicians.”
Pets were also deemed a no-no as the writer warned: “Don’t buy anything that eats.”
