If you’ve had enough of cheerleaders, high heels, or big boobs, maybe it’s time to move on to the latest sexual fixation: Jewish girls. At least that’s the theory over at Details magazine which recently published a provocative article called “The Rise of the Hot Jewish Girl.”
In a recent poll on the porn blog Fleshbot, “Jewish girls” came in second among fetishes, just behind “freckles”. Hot Semitic women can also be seen seducing men on TV shows like Glee and Mad Men, and the profiles of such Jewesses as Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis have never been higher.
So have Jewish women really become the ethnic fetish du jour? It’s hard to argue with the fact that so many women of Jewish heritage – think Rachel Weisz, Scarlett Johansson, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and Rachel Bilson – have become hot commodities in Hollywood.
But are these women popular because they are Jewish or simply because they are hot? Maybe the so-called rise of the hot Jewish woman is actually just an acceptance that women can be sexually desirable whatever their ethnic identity may be.
Personally, I had no idea that Scarlett Johansson was Jewish, but I’ve thought she’s been smokin’ hot for years now. Does Johansson’s Jewishness make her hotter? Maybe, I think it’s simply the fact that she’s beautiful and can act that makes her so attractive. Perhaps Hollywood stereotypes have loosened up just enough that women like Johansson or Rachel Weisz can be become sought after stars, and we’re all just along for the ride.
