Despite her general “pro-sex” bent, Paglia disapproves of the practice:

These girls are lowering themselves to the level of backstreet floozies. It angers me because I fought a bitter fight to get feminism back on track and be pro-sex at the same time. This is degrading the entire pro-sex wing of feminism.

I am completely appalled by what these young women are doing because I think that they are cheapening their own image and obliterating all sexual mystery and glamour, which are the heart of the star system.

This led us to wonder: What would Camille Paglia have to say about Judge Pamela Ann Rymer taking the bench back in October with a partly open robe?
Does it still preserve “[judicial] mystery and glamour”? Or does it go too far, a la Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan?
