Big Apple Adventures Presents My “Vagina” Dialogue With Bestselling Author Naomi Wolf

Last week, I attended the Jewish Book Council Network’s “Meet the Author” event — described by The New York Times as “a combination of ‘The Gong Show’ and speed-dating.” And that it was!  In alphabetical order, we writers rushed to the stage and performed our 2-minute promo pitches for the throng of cultural programmers from Jewish book fairs, festivals, community centers, synagogues and libraries across North America. It was fun! It was frightening! It was also fortuitous: Author, social critic, and political activist Naomi Wolf was there with her new book, Vagina: A Cultural Exploration! For two glorious minutes, Naomi Wolf talked about the vagina and how it is not merely flesh — it’s an intrinsic component of the female brain! When I heard her describe the possible link between orgasms and the increased production of dopamine, I knew we were destined to meet. As luck would have it, we left the room at the same time. Walking toward the door, I bravely introduced myself as the One-Breasted Jewish Parkinson Princess in dire need of more dopamine. Then I smiled as best as I could. She smiled back. Things were looking good, or so I thought until she picked up her pace and politely explained that she was in no position to provide assistance. Clearly, Naomi Wolf had misunderstood my intentions. And if I hadn’t bashed into the door frame, I would have explained…I only wanted to talk to her about her book.

    Ha, ha. I am laughing my ass off. I wish I could have seen the look on her face as she graciously tried to get as far away from you as possible.
