The other day Sex Nerd Sandra put up an interesting post on her blog called Sometimes a Girl Just Wants Good Head. Here’s some of what she wrote:
I’m inspired by a play I saw tonight. Set in 1963, The Magic Bullet Theory was a fun who-shot-JFK ride rich with witty dialogue. One topic that came up several times was blowjobs. One man-character says “women were put on this earth for 2 reasons: to suck our dicks and take our balls.”
Now, contextually, that remark fit with the character and his point, so I don’t mean to get all up in feminism’s business, but it did stir something in my psyche. Later in the story during a fabulous montage scene, a blowjob is artfully woven into the dance number for a brief few moments.
That blowjob business got me a little, well, distracted. First in the hot kind of way. Then I got kind of mad. The passionate voice in my head said, “Why do I never hear women saying, ‘oh man, all I need right now is a good eating out,’ hmm? Why do I never get to see cunnilingus depicted in such a fun & casual manner? I’m not ALL flowers and cuddling, ya know!”
I’ve just never seen a woman portrayed that way. The character in the play receiving aforementioned head was a lawyer. He was a professional going about his job and having a little fun on the side. Good times all around. What if a woman were playing the part?
My first thought reading this was: YES! I would totally love to see that. A woman lawyer professional having a little fun with a guy going down on her on the side. Good times all around!
My second thought was… would we ever see such a role?
It’s hard to imagine now, especially in the context of a renewed assault on women’s rights we’re seeing in the political arena right now. But I think we will, and likely sooner rather than later. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. And if there’s any justice in this universe, this country will eventually shake off the Puritanical morals that put a real damper on expressions of female desire and sexuality. Not to mention I’d imagine such a role done well would likely be a gigantic hit for whatever network was bold enough to try it.

Great effin' show!
I kept hearing the praises of the Showtime series Shameless– TV critics swoon, I’ve got friends that tell me how good it is… so I finally started watching it and man– they are right, what a great show! I’ve been trying to put my finger on what it is about this show that I really enjoy so much.

New Years Day always gives us a chance to reflect back on the things we did in the previous year. One big thing I did was create this blog. I’ve been a writer at heart since I was in middle school, with dreams of being a published author, and years later, dreams of being a screenwriter. Things didn’t work out that way (as of yet) but I did get into writing about a hobby of mine, and have proudly been a paid professional hobby writer for well over a decade.
Even though it’s a lot of fun to write about a hobby you love, it’s a pretty narrow niche potential audience, and it occurred to me last year that starting a blog might be a good way to stretch my writing chops and expand my audience and network of readers and other writers. When I was contemplating what to write about, the fact that I was going through a divorce and needing to start my life over seemed like the perfect thing to write about. Not only would it be much more accessible to readers, but it could also be cathartic to write, providing me with a way to shape my thoughts and feelings going forward, to help me learn from mistakes in the past and focus on the sorts of people I want to be in my life going forward.
The concept was that the blog name “My Ideal Woman” be the first part of an affirmative sentence, with each blog post title “… She’d be (something something)” as the second part of the sentence. Eventually ideas for posts came that didn’t exactly fit the paradigm but that was my original framing.

Just wanted to give a quick shout out to Miles Heizer, who plays the painfully shy Drew Holt, Sarah Braverman’s son on the TV show Parenthood (I did a Women of TV review on Parenthood). His character gets to experience “first love” with Amy, who’s played by the lovely Skyler Day. This consists of lots of touching and kissing scenes with Ms. Day, who’s 20 years old.
- the lovely Skylar Day
Miles is 17. I can only imagine the goofy grin he must have gotten on his face when he heard she’d gotten cast as his love interest. She’s got a very approachable, down-to-earth beauty that makes me instantly love her character, and I certainly hope her role on Parenthood is a long one, and look forward to her future roles in TV and movies.
And Miles, dude… consider this a virtual hi-five!
