Seldom have I come across a piece as comprehensively wrong as Hanna Rosin’s defense of hookup culture as a feminist victory in The Atlantic.
Martin Amis’s novel about the sexual revolution and its unintended consequences “The Pregnant Widow” has far too many ideas to be dealt with in 450 words but here is my review in today’s Post.
The sex thriller “Chloe” could have used a snappier pace and a few more thrills, but it’s got a steamy girl-on-girl sex scene. My review is up.
Ho-hum, you say? More evidence of the English Vice, this time in Christopher Hitchens’ upcoming memoir, in which he confesses to schoolboy love affairs with Thatcher-loving dudes when he, of course, was a young Trotskyite.

Which doesn’t bode well for unmarried women in their 30s who thought they were supposed to put their career first. I can see a divide forming between the two groups. “Sex and the […]
In my Sunday column I ask: are “Sex and the City” fangirls really all that different from “Star Wars” geeks? Yes. They’re worse. And check out my parody of the TV show.« Previous Entries
