I just watched an episode of Friends, and please, God, give me that half hour of my life back.
Basically, Rachel tells Ross she’s slept with four or five men while he’s slept with two women (including her). He freaks out that she had ‘wild animal sex’ with someone and feels deeply insecure. She reassures him that they have something much better than wild, animal sex; a connection, camaraderie.
To hender reverse the situation: how many scenarios have we seen where the woman is less experienced? How come no-one makes a big deal about that? Why do women have to make men feel special about having more experience but for men, it’s the status quo? I have never once seen a man reassuring his girlfriend that they have something special despite being more experienced than her.
Then, Rachel squabbles with her housemate Monica about who gets the last condom. Like, why not someone just bloody run out and get more. I suppose I should give them kudos for bringing up condom use (better than All Saints can do!) but it never even got resolved. OK, that’s sloppy writing on their part as well as bad feminism, but seriously, the episode sucked.
