Sex

The Japanese associate sex with toys - note the eleven interchangeable heads - and the Americans with food - 'the big hit was mayonnaise'. The British, of course, associate sex with the loss of empire and house prices.

  2. Have you been up all night thinking about that ? Strange - in this weeks new scientist, a brief mention of 'Meet me' - 'a buttoned down, sex-free online world' launched in Japan. I can't think the Americans would go for a mayonnaise free version.

  3. What time zone is it in Notting Hill ? I think you've put your clock back a month early...

  4. Incidentally, are you going for a new hit record with the title ?

  5. Once upon a time, the Irish associated sex with immorality or sin. It was subterranean, forbidden and dirty. Now it's bloody everywhere and associated with everything. I think we should go back to the forbidden and dirty phase. Then it was a case of: "I know it's wrong, but it feels so right" and now it's "I know it's right but it feels so wrong". Does that make any sense?

  6. I don't know what a "corn dog" is. Something to do with the Bible? Now I don't want to.

    A comment on the Wired article produced quite a good new word: teledildonics, "operating sex toys via the internet". I'm wondering whether this blog has teledildonicious tendencies on the grounds that Bryan's female admirers probably think he's a bit of a sex toy. I guess Nige's huge nose rules him out of that one, but the Japanese could well have a sex toy for that, too. Or it could be a case of "telegrouchonics", operating Groucho Marx impersonators via the internet.

    I associate sex with certain ecstasy followed by warm contentment. But, then, my husband is a great lover.
