The Zipless Fuck

Found this in my notes and I laughed as loudly as I had two years ago when I first read about it.

Abridged from Wikipedia. Full article here.

Fear of Flying is a 1973 novel by Erica Jong... The book resonated with women who felt stuck in unfulfilled marriages, and it has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.... In the novel, Jong coined the term "zipless fuck," which soon entered the popular lexicon. A "zipless fuck" is defined as a sexual encounter for its own sake, without emotional involvement or commitment or any ulterior motive, between two previously unacquainted persons.

Jong goes on to explain that it is "zipless" because "when you came together, zippers fell away like rose petals, underwear blew off in one breath like dandelion fluff. For the true ultimate zipless A-1 fuck, it was necessary that you never got to know the man very well."

Screw "Cowboys in Paradise". I should have called the film "The Zipless Fucks".

(Note: "Fear of Flying" isn't about female sex tourism. But the Zipless Fuck is a valid motivation for female sex tourists.)
