Now this is my kind of book review.

Florence King critiquing feminist author Naomi Wolf's new book, Vagina: A New Biography:
Naomi Wolf’s new book makes going back to the womb sound more like going through a car wash. We are knocked down by streams of gushing hormones, we slip and slide on slick layers of lubrication, we are thrown to the floor by violent throbbing, we collide with G-spots, we are challenged by a clitoris demanding “Who goes there?” and yanked in by a cervix with a strength more often found in bar bouncers.

If you thought there was nothing new to say about female sexuality, you don’t know Naomi Wolf’s gift for saying nothing new about anything.
Can I use the word "bitchslap" when referring to that which a talented female writer does to a by-God feminist icon?

For that is what it is.

Words well writ.  Thanks, Ms. King.
