V is for Vixen

A character that fascinates me is the vixen. I'm referring to the slang definition of vixen--"a sexually provocative female"--not "a woman regarded as quarrelsome, shrewish, or malicious".

My favorite TV vixen is Samantha Jones from Sex and the City.


Do you remember the melon episode? Kim Cattrall plays her brilliantly.




She cracks me up. Samantha is coy, intelligent, sexually adventurous, and disdainful of monogamy. She doesn't want to marry and she sure as hell doesn't want children.

My mother, who is in her seventies, claims that women like Samantha Jones don't really exist...that women aren't really sexual aggressors. I have to admit I don't have any friends like Samantha, but I believe there are women out there who do crave sexin' it up with multiple partners.

What do YOU think?

**Blogger help!** The past two scheduled posts have not published. Is that happening to anyone else? Any suggestions for how to fix it?

I quite like vixens too, but I really didn't like Samantha. Sadly, I have known women like her in real life!

Kyra, Samantha wasn't my favorite character on SaTC--I think that goes to Miranda and Carrie--but I do find her fun. It would be interesting to know a Samantha Jones. ;)

I think vixens exist in the fantasies of males and the daydreams of women! LOL. But it's nice to think that they exist out there, having fun with gusto and wit! Roland

I like your answer, Roland. :)

Vixens aren't exactly mythical (like vampires!)I'm sure there are lots of Samanthas out there.:)
