Sex With Someone We Love

Comment of the Week

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “We are all goyim,” who asked, on the occasion of my report that the staunchly Catholic Republican candidate Rick Santorum was in a Jewish fraternity in college: “Are Jews pathological narcissists? Why do you always have to search, in a maladif manner, if something is ‘jewish’? When you masturbate, do you look at yourself in the mirror or do you think to yourself?”

The answers to these questions are, respectively: “not all of them,” “because it’s my job,” and “none of your business.” But still, we appreciate the idea for a line of mirrored adult toys, none of which would presumably lead to the mess that discussions of S/santorum entail. Out of gratitude, you get a copy of Melvin Konner’s The Jewish Body, because beauty, certainly, is in the eye of the beholder.
