A Stunning Admission

“When I came of age in the seventies, it was still pretty cool to be able to offer a young man the actual presence of a naked, willing young woman. Today, real naked women are just bad porn.”

— Feminist Naomi Wolf

Interesting, indeed.

And now, as an aside, my one and only Naomi Wolf anecdote:

Ten years ago, Naomi Wolf spoke at my alma mater, Loyola University Chicago. I had a class that night, so I wasn't able to go, but a couple friends of mine did.

During the Q & A afterward, one of my friends challenged something she said in her lecture that implicitly (explicitly?) encouraged promiscuity among two consenting adults. Her response was to him was, essentially, that he was too uptight and that he needed to have more sex.
