DeAnne Smith’s Questionable At Best Asks “What’s too Jewy?”

Once again it’s time for DeAnne Smith’s totally awesome podcast Questionable at Best!

deanne_wideThis week DeAnne is chatting with comedian Robby Hoffman as they try to answer the question “What’s too Jewy?” DeAnne’s not Jewish but Robby Hoffman is and it’s delightful to listen to DeAnne’s complete discomfort with the whole concept. The question was Robby’s idea.

Is that kreplach soup you're sipping?

Is that kreplach soup you’re sipping?

Who’s Robby? Well:

Robby uses humor to describe her neuroses (think Woody Allen) as well as her life growing up in a family of ten children, as a lesbian in a Jewish Orthodox family.

There is also a discussion of whether or not scissoring is real and actually taking place between lesbians. Spoiler Alert: DeAnne has scissored.

I think you’ll enjoy this one.

      I know people who claim lesbians never do it, one guy I know thinks it’s a waste of time and only for men’s benefit in porn*.

      I’ve tried it but only once or twice had any foreplayeque success. Our first time was hilariously awkward and in the end we ended up giggling and moving onto oral.

      It seems like the sort of this that would hurt with stubble.

      Do you mind me asking what positions you’ve had success in? We’ve only managed it with missionary style.

      Myself, and most of my queer friends, have always sort of regarded scissoring as a joke. Like, as in no one actually does it. I’ve never heard of anyone doing it and having it… well, working.

      Personally, I’ve tried it with one girlfriend. I don’t know how to put the experience other than: uneventful. Maybe you just have to find the right partner…
