Alert! Alert!

Thanks to Tom Junod of Esquire, it is now okay to f*ck a 42 year-old woman, which is great for chicks in our early forties – we are now f*ckable.


This is Junod – aren’t you glad he thinks we’re hot? Actually, I’m 43, so am no longer hot, but as of 3 months ago, I was, in fact, quite desirable.

According to Junod, prior to his proclamation, a woman in her forties was the embodiment of a walking, talking, stalking tragedy:

Let’s face it: There used to be something tragic about even the most beautiful forty-two-year-old woman. With half her life still ahead of her, she was deemed to be at the end of something—namely, everything society valued in her, other than her success as a mother. If she remained sexual, she was either predatory or desperate; if she remained beautiful, what gave her beauty force was the fact of its fading. And if she remained alone… well, then God help her.

God help her???

Really, Tom? God help her? Isn’t that just a bit melodramatic?

God help Tom Junod – what an ass.

I was so annoyed by this article that for a moment, I couldn’t even think straight. All that kept flashing across my mind was a string of expletives, and if you know me, then you know that string was quite long and incredibly creative and crass.

Then I read some of the comments and was quite pleased to discover I’m not the only one who finds Junod to be a complete tool.

Check this gem from David:

Dear Tom,
As a 43 year-old man, I am so glad you wrote this piece. On top of the impertinence of your writing, it shows why no woman of any age will ever fuck you again. And that makes me very happy because the world is a slightly better place now that you can’t reproduce again. I hope your sensibilities die with your generation.
David Prete


Couldn’t say it better myself.

And for the record, Tom, we know what you look like and now we also know how your brain works, and trust me honey, regardless of your age, you are 100% unf*ckable.

  1. Did you see all the pictures of the 42 year old women being praised in that aritcle? All movie stars who have personal trainers, chefs, make-up artists, and plastic surgeons on speed-dial. What about the 42 year-old women fighting in the middle east? What about the 42 year old women doctors and physicists? Where are the woman who are changing the world?

    The scary part is that this article reinforces Junod’s ‘everything society values her for’ mentality (which, sadly, is the norm)–that once a woman loses her physical beauty, she loses value. These women are heroes, because they’re still sexy.

    Actresses work hard to stay flawless over forty because that’s their job, and that’s great. I admire them, but there’s a lot more value to a forty-something woman than whether or not she has been able to maintain her firm glutes and smooth skin. Sex-appeal in an older woman comes from her awareness, experience, and love of herself.

    What a douche. I bet he had no idea he sounded like such an idiot.

    • He had no idea he sounded like an idiot because his head is up his ass!

      He states: “if she remained beautiful, what gave her beauty force was the fact of its fading.” I have NEVER looked at a beautiful, older woman (well, now my contemporaries) and thought to myself, she is so freaking hot because it’s all about to go to shit.


      And yes, you’re right. He completely ignores all of the women who work outside of Hollywood – basically, all of womanhood.

      There is so much wrong with him and his thought-processes, we could have this conversation all night.
