3 Rules for Casual Sex

Yesterday I wrote a post about the lies that the rom-com genres tell us. But they sometimes do tell us the truth. This post by Shimon Peres-Hilton, a Jewish blogger, has distilled three rules for Jewish women wishing to have casual, no strings sex from the two recent films, Friends With Benefits and No Strings Attached, which star our favorite Jewesses of the moment, Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman, respectively.

Here's an iota of the wisdom contained therein about the importance of having a great, rollicking career in order to have casual sex:

If they weren’t [successful], this would be viewed as merely pathetic, as we were expected to see Kristen Wiig’s tryst with Jon Hamm in “Bridesmaids.” Her character was broke, living with creepy roommates and working at a terrible job (until she’s fired). Add to that mixture casual sex with a cad and you’ve got one woman scraping the bottom of the barrel (but at least that barrel was lined with Jon Hamm!). So women, fling away but only if everything else in your life is completely under control.

The rest can be read here.
