This morning, when you woke up next to your schlub of a life partner, did you take a deep breath and sigh, yearning for the days when he didn’t take you for goddamn granted? Candace Bushnell did!

Well, maybe she didn’t: as the New York Post points out, Bushnell is currently single. But she might have woken up in her bed alone and thought something along the lines of what she reportedly told Porter magazine (an interview which is sadly not available online) about the state of sex today:

“There seems to be a lot of complaints about everybody trying to act like they’re in a porno movie, and I think because the porn was more real then . . . Now, it’s airbrushed and plastic . . . I don’t know, I just remember men were really grateful to be with women. And from what I hear, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.”

She’s also worried that sex has gotten REAL bad. “I always remember sex being really, really good,” she said. “Now I feel like all I hear is sex is really bad, and I want to say, ‘Get a hold of it!’”

AMERICA, GRAB A PRIVATE PART (OR TWO) AND GET A HOLD OF IT.
