erica jong -zipless fuck


I had a conversation with a good friend of mine this morning and i was reminded of this lady.

She wrote a book called fear of flying back in (wait for it ) 1973. shes a funny feministic and oreward thinking writer who coined teh phrase teh zipless fuck meaning a NSA encounter. Heres the summary of it from her own site (www.ericajong.com)


Fear of Flying is the story of Isadora Wing, one of the most hilarious and touching anti- heroines to ever appear in fiction. A compulsive daydreamer, a seeker of saviors and psychiatrists, the author of a book of supposedly erotic poems, and a full-fledged phobic who fears flying but will not allow that fear to keep her off planes, Isadora relates her adventures and misadventures with wit, exuberance, and the sort of absolute candor that for centuries was permitted only to men.

On a trip to Vienna to attend a psycholanalytic congress with her psychiatrist husband, she meets an uninhibited Laingian analyst who seems the embodiment of all her steamiest fantasies. He lures her away from her husband on an existential jaunt across Europe, sleeping by roadsides, changing partners with people met at campsites, re-evaluating her life in some painful and funny ways. But the trip proves to be a journey backward in time as well as a reshuffle of the present..

Though Isadora fears flying (in all possible senses of the word), she forces herself to keep traveling, to risk her marriage and her life is pursuit of her own brand of liberation. How she finds it and loses her fear is what Fear of Flying is all about.

There are over 6.5 million copies of Fear of Flying in print in the U.S. alone. Around the world there are 12.5 million copies in print in 27 languages.

Read this book way back when, Grade 8 I think I was in...and yes, had to keep foil handy for the cover so no one would know what I was devouring...

And yes, have always loved the concept of a Zipless Fuck, but haven't really had anything quite like that...too many logistics to work out!

Did you know she's written again? I have a signed copy of it: Fear of Fifty! LOL
