  • Is Sex Without Emotion a Deal Breaker?

    By Ilana Angel

    June 21, 2012 | 5:11 pm

    I had a conversation this week about sex and cheating that was fascinating.  By fascinating of course I mean men are pigs.  I think sex requires emotion to be good, but the man I was speaking with insisted sex can be great without emotion, and sometimes the lack of emotion can even...

    I had lunch today with two of my favorite people on the planet.  One is a woman who is 17 years younger than me, and the other is a man who is 17 years older than me.  We talked about work, families, life, Judaism, and sex. These two people are funny, smart, intellectual,...

    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...

    I was walking out of a screening of the cheeky new animated film, “Puss in Boots,” starring Antonio Banderas as the titular bad kitty, at Grauman’s Mann Chinese 6 Theatres when a splattering of fake blood on the cinema’s glass doors, gaunt skeletal figures and assorted skulls...

    It was only a matter of time before the sex lives of Orthodox Jews were welcomed into the world of sex toys and fetish gear.  Congratulations to the folks at koshersextoys[dot]net for offering the joys of sex to religious Jews. By not showing a bunch of explicit pictures or videos of...

  • A Roll in the Snow

    By Tom Tugend

    October 2, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The central theme of "Yossi & Jagger" is a love affair between two gay Israeli officers, but -- straights please note -- the film's impact goes well beyond the sexual motif.

    Seldom has the boredom, tension and camaraderie of men and women at war been portrayed more realistically and...

  • Luried Tales

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    October 19, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Back when Rod Lurie was the meanest film critic in L.A., he used to gush about actress Joan Allen on his KABC radio show. The guy who once called Danny DeVito a "testicle with legs" lauded Allen as "the greatest working actor in the world." "I'd manage to slip that in every other...
