No one enjoys being told who they are and what their sexual preferences are. Especially when you're being insulted, like Erica Jong just did in the Sunday New York Times. As a fan of Jong's "Fear of Flying," it kind of bums me out that she just took a shot at this generation of moms, and told us we were choosing between our motherhood and our sex life. Jong believes we (young women) even think that sex is unimportant and are content to live without it, or (gasp!) with monogamy. In fact, young mothers are the perfect example of sex-denying ladies for this generation. Especially you natural mommies.
Jong believes if you're a baby-wearing, breastfeeding, co-sleeping mom, then you're probably using all of the above to push your sexual partner far, far away from you and your lady parts. The message we're sending our mate is that boobs are for the baby, and beds are for families. No hanky-panky allowed.
I have to admit, I used to believe this too.
