  • From the mouths of the babes…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 22, 2012 | 9:00 pm

    Somehow I’ve known all along that kids don’t stay kids for long (I know I’m a genius), but I didn’t expect to get ‘educated’ about various sexual subjects by a twelve-year-old boy.  More importantly… my twelve-year-old boy.  When this school year started, so did the...

  • Being Sad, the End of an Era & Sex with Trolls

    By Ilana Angel

    February 16, 2012 | 10:32 am

    I have been sad for a couple of days.  Not depressed, just sad.  It was the anniversary of my dad’s passing, my son is growing up, I miss my family, and I have decisions to make about my work, but none of that is the cause of my sadness.  I was just sad.  I have been crying easily...

  • Love, Loss & Sex at 100

    By Ilana Angel

    February 14, 2012 | 12:17 am

    Yesterday marked the 9th anniversary of the passing of my dad. I spent a lot of time crying, and that I managed to make it through the day was a miracle because there were moments when I simply could not breathe.  I loved my father, miss him everyday, and feel the loss deeply.

  • The Last Taboo: The Lord Shall Preserve Thee From All Evil

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 13, 2012 | 9:15 am

    My boyfriend and I were in a car accident this weekend.  We both are fine.  Nothing more than a few bruises on us.  The cars were not so lucky, though of course we know it could have been much worse.  But when the storm had passed, the incident afforded me an unexpected peak into an...

  • Dating Sucks but LA Singles Rock

    By Ilana Angel

    February 13, 2012 | 2:41 am

    This past Saturday night, the Jewish Journal held its first singles event and I was honored to be a part of it.  By a part of it of course I mean this was my baby and I was thrilled with how the event turned out.  It was the forward thinking of Rob Eshman and David Suissa that...

  • Opinion: Israel must criminalize purchase of sex

    February 8, 2012 | 3:59 pm

    In Israel, an estimated 15,000 individuals are involved in prostitution, including 5,000 under the age of 18, according to reports shared with the Task Force on Human Trafficking by Knesset member Orit Zuaretz of the Kadima Party, as well as other experts and activists. The reports...

  • I Don’t Believe in Gay Marriage

    By Ilana Angel

    February 8, 2012 | 8:49 am

    To say that one supports gay marriage implies that gay marriage is somehow different from traditional marriage.  It’s not.  I think all people deserve the right to marry whether they are gay or straight.  If people are going to insist on differentiating gay marriage from...

  • Why Do I Date Online?

    By Ilana Angel

    February 3, 2012 | 11:16 am

    I often get asked why I date online.  It’s a good question to which there is no answer.  Well there are answers of course, but they are all lies.  “It’s easy.”  No it’s not.  “It’s fun”. No it’s not.  “It can work”.  No it can’t. Online dating is the...

  • Dating Sucks Singles Event

    By Ilana Angel

    January 27, 2012 | 8:33 am

    For those of us who are searching for our beshert, we pray that every first date will be our last.  Being set up, dating online, or hitting the bars are all horrible, but not as bad as going to a singles event.

    Until now.

    The first of The Jewish Journal’s singles events is...

  • Sundance: Helen Hunt as a sexual surrogate

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 23, 2012 | 12:18 am

    When “The Surrogate” has its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 23, audiences will view Helen Hunt in her remarkable turn as Cheryl Cohen Greene, based on the real-life sexual surrogate who helped quadriplegic Mark O’Brien (John Hawkes) lose his virginity back...

  • Gary L.

    January 11, 2012 | 7:05 pm

    Gary’s brother, Jason, is a recent single peep. And, like Jason, Gary’s a nice, easygoing guy. But, he tells me, this wasn’t always the case. In college, just as he was launching an online magazine, his personality started to shift. He became moody and paranoid, and he was...

  • Why You Date Who You Date

    By Ilana Angel

    January 4, 2012 | 12:17 pm

    The New Year marks my return to dating.  After a bit of a break I’m ready to jump back in.  By a break of course I mean one bad date too many put me over the edge.  I was either going to get another cat and never date, or walk away, regroup, and try again with a fresh...

  • Premarital Sex, Orthodox Jews & Censorship

    By Ilana Angel

    December 15, 2011 | 9:57 am

    Stern College for Women is part of Yeshiva University of Manhattan.  It is an Orthodox Jewish school, and while it has classes that are religious based and not, it is a religious campus and the rules and regulations of Orthodoxy are followed.  Even if it means censorship.

  • Rejection Collection

    By Elliot Steingart

    December 14, 2011 | 11:55 am

    I’m like the Brett Favre of OkCupid, a grizzled veteran hoping for one last shot of glory.  I thought I could reclaim some of the magic from my earlier days of internet dating. This time I think I’m calling it quits. As I prepare for retirement, and meet women the natural way (at...

  • Shh! Don’t talk about sex at Yeshiva University

    December 13, 2011 | 4:51 pm

    It wasn’t your typical college sex scandal. There were no accusations of molestation, inappropriate faculty-student relationships or date rape charges.

    Instead, the precipitating incident was the publication by a student-run newspaper of a female student’s first-person account...

  • 6 comments on the YU Beacon Orthodox-sex controversy

    By Shmuel Rosner

    December 12, 2011 | 3:57 am

    Since this story is all over the place, I see no reason to repeat the basic facts in more than a very brief manner. If you’re not yet familiar with it and want more details you can read the NY Times report:

    It all started with a provocative, anonymous essay about premarital sex...

  • Patti Stanger vs. The Millionaire Matchmaker

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 9:37 am

    Millionaire Matchmaker is a difficult show to watch because everyone on this show is a little odd.  From the staff, to the daters, to the fake clients, to Patti Stanger, nobody is believable or particularly interesting.  The main issue I have with this show is Patti and how...

  • Michael Fassbender on “Shame,” sadism, playing a Jewish supervillain and why he’s not in therapy

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    December 5, 2011 | 11:54 pm

    “Shame, shame, shame, shame,” Michael Fassbender, who very much seems to be the actor of the moment, sang in a goofy baritone recently.  His impromptu ditty was unexpected, given that he was in the middle of an intense discussion about his two latest films:  Steve McQueen’s...

  • Single, Happy, Hopeful & Strutting

    By Ilana Angel

    November 30, 2011 | 9:12 am

    I am in a dating slump and frankly have no real interest in getting out of it. I had a date last week that was completely uneventful, and when I came across someone online I thought looked interesting, it turned out he was a reader of my blog and while a fan, was not brave enough to...

  • Boobs & Bras Should Be Mandatory Like Driving & Seatbelts

    By Ilana Angel

    November 30, 2011 | 8:48 am

    I like my boobs.  I actually like boobs in general.  I think they are pretty and important and I am rather proud of mine.  Big or small, boobs are a beautiful part of a woman’s body and I take care of mine.  I get them checked out regularly both myself, and by a doctor.  I enjoy...

  • Keira Knightley on (early 20th Century) Jews and Aryans in Love

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    November 26, 2011 | 12:47 pm

    Keira Knightley phoned me on a rare day off from shooting her next film, “Anna Karenina,” to discuss her portrayal of a very different kind of fraught heroine in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method,” now in theaters. In this period drama based on true events, Knightley...

  • David Cronenberg on ‘A Dangerous Method,’ S & M and The Birth of Psychoanalysis [VIDEO]

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    November 22, 2011 | 10:28 am

    Last week I conducted a question-and-answer session with filmmaker David Cronenberg about his new period drama, “A Dangerous Method,” which spotlights the “intellectual ménage a trios” between Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, and Sabina Spielrein, Jung’s troubled but brilliant...

  • Child sex arrests spike. Or do they?

    November 11, 2011 | 10:58 am

    Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes claims to have arrested an unprecedented 89 men on child sex-abuse charges in the ultra-Orthodox communities in Brooklyn over the past two years — but declines to provide any details backing up the numbers or to give the status of any of the...

  • A man’s equipment…

    By Julia Bendis

    November 4, 2011 | 10:00 pm

    It has been years since I’ve watched old episodes of ‘Seinfeld’. I usually come across it, watch for a few minutes then move on.  Today’s show, however made me pause and think.  It was the one where Elaine tries to change a homosexual man into a heterosexual unsuccessfully. ...

  • Altara M.

    November 2, 2011 | 2:58 pm

    Altara is an only child, raised in New York. She wants to find a man from the East Coast. And when she wants something, she goes after it. That’s how she got in this column.

    “At 27, I bought myself a little Mercedes. I focused on something I was really good at. I sold...

  • Michele K.

    October 26, 2011 | 5:49 pm

    As soon as Michele sits down with me, she says, “I’m crap at talking about myself.” Hear it with a British accent, and it’s 10 times cuter. I’ve known Michele for years — she’s a friend of a friend — and I realize I don’t know a whole lot about her. She really is...

  • Even a Good Girl Looks Like a Hooker When Her Date is 36 Minutes Late

    By Ilana Angel

    October 23, 2011 | 8:47 pm

    I had a date on Saturday night with a man we’ll call “Sparky”.  I chose this moniker not because it is a cute name for a puppy, thus implying he is a dog, but rather because both on the phone, and in person, we had a spark.  I am sarcastic and rather quick witted so when I meet...
