The Pretty Woman Sheitl

Dr. Marc B. Shapiro blogs: "One wonders if he was writing his book today, which problems he would identify. I don’t think English sermons would still be an issue for him, although I think it is fair to say that advertising a “Pretty Woman” sheitl would definitely outrage him. After all, the sheitl is supposed to represent modesty, and Julia Roberts’ profession in that particular movie was not exactly tzniusdik. See here (Unfortunately, some of the comments to this post are inappropriate.)"

I went looking for the inappropriate comments and I believe I found them. Proud MO said: "Back when I wasn’t religious, the easiest girls to hook up with were from Beis Yaakovs and other really frum schools.
I have a friend who told me that you can walk in Boro Park propositioning married chassidic women, and actually be taken up on it a huge percentage of the time."

Tesyaa comments: Proud MO’s comment reminds me of the chapter in Richard Feynman’s book, "Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!" called "You Just Ask Them?" about propositioning nice girls.
