“… it seems to me that sex in the Village is like sex anywhere. It is where you find it, and the more you look for it, the less likely you are apt to succeed. … Women ar [sic] not met. They are encountered…usually under circumstances that preclude anything beyond a mild hand-hold in the shared taxi from Idlewild.
Females in the Village APPEAR to be more willing than other New York women, but they bog down in debate, procrastination, and unabashed scratching which does less than little toward furthering romance. They are generally sharp without being intelligent, knowing without being knowledgeable, literary without being seductive. For good measure, permit me to throw in one more fault: they are too bloody self centered.”
