The title of today’s post is a quote from comedian Carol Leifer, said during the WTF podcast (one of my faves, yes I have lots of favorite podcasts).
She’s a hysterically funny and accomplished woman. And, like many women of her generation, she started out having relationships with men (including a marriage) and then ‘switched teams.’
At some point in the interview Marc Maron (the host of WTF) asked her frankly about the transition from men to women. And if there was less BS and stress with a female partner.
What followed was one of the smartest and most honest conversations about relationships I’ve heard in a while.
Best part came when Marc asked her if she missed cock.
She said, “cock comes with a lot of bullshit.”
To which he replied, “that goes both ways.”
And she agreed, “Vaginas got its issues…”
I was listening on the subway. I started to laugh so hard that everyone in the car was staring at me.
She went on to say that relationships were hard. Men, women.. it didn’t really matter. It all took work. Which is the smart answer.
