Pepper Schwartz talks Samantha of Sex in the City, That Girl and more with Elle magazine

What fun it was to connect Dr. Pepper Schwartz with Elle magazine recently, for the “Living Single” article on the single gal in tv and film through the years. Writer Jeryl Bruner wrote about taking a tip or two from “unwed wonders throughout pop-culture history” and who better than Schwartz, author of such books as Prime: Adventures and Advice About Sex, Love, and the Sensual Years to offer expert comment?

Of Marlos Thomas’ That Girl character, Schwartz says, “The opening scene was her pure joy—like she was saying, ‘Am I happy to be here or what?’” Of Sex and the City she says, “Imagine a show based on middle-aged and old women, who are usually invisible, having good and interesting lives,” says Schwartz. “They were bright, analytical, adventurous, and even interested in sex.”

This is a fun read single gals, so be certain to click on the blog title above to read the entire piece.

Thank you Jeryl and thank you Pepper!
