    sleep the way to the top

    Hi,

    What does it mean?

    Some people sleep the way to the top, but usually white women and only so far. The notion that you can sleep your way to the top is essentially myth. No doubt women compromise themselves in hope of this, but for the most part its a myth. The majority of women cannot elevate themselves by this means does not stopping many using their assets to curry favour or alieviate tight spots.

    Thanks a lot

    It means that people sleep with (have sex with) influential people in order to gain jobs, promotion, etc. They do this as long as it is necessary to get to the top of their profession.

    The text is also badly written- the last sentence is chaotic.

    That is a very badly written paragraph from start to finish. I don't know where you found it but it wasn't written by a native English speaker. Even the quote you queried has been used badly. It should, in this context, say "Some people sleep their way to the top..."
