Sex with Brody

Brody  Jenner: eye candy for the women out in TV land and elsewhere

E! network has started a new show in recent months called Sex with Brody. Joining Jenner in this debacle of a venture are a comedian, and it is a most liberal and generous use of the word comedian in applying it as a description of this host,  as the defining characteristic of a comedian is stipulate to be that the person be funny, along with a so-called relationship expert.  

As far as the relationship expert, what credentialed are required in order to refer to oneself as such?  I've had a relationship or two.  Neither got past first base, but they were, nonetheless, relationships.  Does that make me a relationship expert? 

My brother, by contrast, has had,  since he turned sixteen and was allowed to declare officially in y parents' presence that any given female was his girlfriend, nearly one hundred relationships.. I actually sat down with a pen and a legal pad and tried to list every girl he's dated "steadily' since he reached the age at which relationships meant more than the mere passing notes back and forth in class inquiring  and providing answers in relation (no pun intended) to who liked whom. I could only come up with eighty-one, but I  know there were more, including those about whom I never even knew when we attended separate universities.  Is my brother a "relationship expert"? God, I hope not. If the relationships of the world are dependent upon Matthew's advice, god help us all. unfortunately, such is probably also the case with Brody Jenner's "relationship expert. the only thing surprising in any of this is that anyone who came of age in the Kardashian/Jenner fiasco considers  the terms sex and relationship not to be mutually exclusive.

Brody Jenner is  a handsome man; I'll give him that. Other than his looks, and the many sexual encounters he's likely had largely as a result of those looks, though, I'm not sure what about his situation qualifies him to host a TV show offering advice concerning  sex. Other than "always wear a condom if the hook-up is casual, and "never believe her when she says she's on birth control," i question the value of any advice he could offer. If it were a XXX cable program called "Brody demonstrates how to please a woman,' perhaps he's be qualified. i don't even know for certain that he's qualified to do that. Perhaps his talent lies in his ability to pick up women. Who knows if he's really good in bed? Actually, a lot of women probably could answer that question for me, but, unfortunately none of them are here right now. Maybe he should author a book with the title 
Chicken Soup for the Horny Soul.

In my perfect world, anyone who is as closely related as step-fourth-cousin-twice removed to any member of the Kardashian-Jenner disaster should therefore immediately be disqualified from providing advice about sex, or anything else, for that matter.

Baby has dropped to 3 lbs.,  3 oz., but is hanging n there like a prize fighter.


  1. With each passing day, I am more and more delighted that I never kept up with the Kardashians... or the Jenners.

  2. When I first read this many hours ago, I did not have a comment. Now I do. It is about what your brother says is the most important thing in the world to you-- you. It is about someone else, that you may become like and are already like. M. Scott Peck is an M.D. (psychiatrist) but is known as the author of the groundbreaking bestseller, The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth.

    Here is what says about this book (Of course I am writing this since you may write a book even better this. I have huge expectations of you.) "Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than The Road Less Traveled. With sales of more than seven million copies in the United States and Canada, and translations into more than twenty-three languages, it has made publishing history, with more than ten years on the New York Times bestseller list."

    "By melding love, science, and religion into a primer on personal growth, M. Scott Peck launched his highly successful writing and lecturing career with this book." I bet that you could also meld love, science and religion into a book, Alexis. Now I said that you are already like him. How? His father was an attorney and judge. You look up to that TV judge as if he were your father. See next comment.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Dr. Peck went to the prestigious boarding school Phillips Exeter Academy. Wikipedia says "In his book, The Road Less Traveled,[6] he confides the story of his brief stay at Exeter, and admits that it was a most miserable time. Finally, at age 15, during the spring holiday of his third year, he came home and refused to return to the school, whereupon his parents sought psychiatric help for him and he was (much to his amusement in later life) diagnosed with depression and recommended for a month's stay in a psychiatric hospital (unless he chose to return to school). He graduated from Friends Seminary in 1954, after which he received a BA from Harvard in 1958, and an MD degree from Case Western Reserve University in 1963."

    It sounds like he has accepted what happened above and understands that it was a spiritual crises that he went through to get a better understanding of things. He died in 2005. It is interesting that his book was published in 1978 but did not become popular until 1982. says "The book consists of four parts. In the first part Peck examines the notion of discipline, which he considers essential for emotional, spiritual, and psychological health, and which he describes as "the means of spiritual evolution."

  5. Spiritual evolution is the process that one goes through (and the purpose of life) where a person becomes more and more happy, not based on what is happening in his life but how he feels inside. So what is the road less traveled (I read it)?

    He says that people are not attracted to the person that will be the most compatible with them. They are attracted to the person that they need to help with their spiritual evolution. Alexis, this a good book to read to see what a medical doctor that was "recommended for a month's stay in a psychiatric hospital" can do.

    Alexis, I want you to accept yourself and see how great you are, so you can do great things in the future. So your father has sung (like at Claire's funeral) "It's something unpredictable but in the end it's right, I hope you had the time of your life." This may be hard to comprehend but all of this (world and life) has been created for you so you can find out what you are and change the world.
