Benjamin Kunkel Will Make Sweet Love to You, Philip Roth Will Tap Your Ass

By Jason Diamond

But my favorite part of Kate Roiphe’s essay, “The Naked and the Conflicted“, in the New York Times Sunday Book review has to be:

“writers like Jonathan Safran Foer who avoid the corruptions of adult sexuality by choosing children and virgins as their protagonists.”

What I gained from this essay is more evidence that Philip Roth is an old guy who can’t deal with his inability to hump women that he probably treats like shit, Norman Mailer had serious inadequacy issues, Michael Chabon is a shy guy, and Jonathan Safran Foer is a pussy, but putting Benjamin Kunkel at the “cuddling” end of this chart seems silly, I think the guy should be in the middle as a “pragmatic lovemaker“.
