Yeah, yeah, yeah – you are so sick of me on this topic already. I know. I’m sick of me on this topic already. What the hell am I talking about? Magic numbers. You know, the number of men you’ve slept with.
I’ve written about this several times. Most recently here. And as my regular readers might imagine, I think it’s a silly topic for grown ups.
BUT, I was completely drawn in to a conversation last week with a smartie pants reporter from the NYPost, Sheila McClear who wanted real women’s opinions about the new Anna Faris movie, “What’s Your Number?” In the movie, a 29 yr-old NYer realizes she’s slept with 20 guys and freaks out, deciding that she can’t go over that number or she’d be a slut. So therefore she goes back through all her past lovers determined to recycle one of them.
So sex positive.
I’d never heard of the movie until Sheila mentioned it to me, and I was horrified. Well, not horrified. Sounded like typical Hollywood crap to me.
Anyway, Sheila and I had a nice chat and she was kind enough to quote me in her awesome article about the movie (amongst some other super-smart women). Check it out – Wrong Number: NY Women don’t worry about their sex lives going too far too fast.
