I once had very quick sex on the steps of the Albert Memorial in that there London on a Saturday afternoon. There's (a) an interesting dinner party conversation and (b) a time when quick is definitely good. I was wearing a very long coat and she was wearing a very short skirt, in case you were wondering. This was Acceptable, as it was the eighties.

I'm digressing. And turning into one of them Sex Blogs which have been all over the media recently. Perhaps.

Quick Blogging is the way forward (keep up at the back). I've decided that unless I've got something serious to say, then 10 minutes is my limit.

  • What was Acceptable in the 80's? The very long coat?
    The very short skirt?
    Or the very quick shag?
    All of the above?

  • The time and place, obviously. Very liberal, the eighties.

  • and there was me thinking that something I might have done twenty years ago was a reflection of my youth twenty years ago (as in I was 22 and therefore did whatever the f*ck I wanted*)(whether it was acceptable or not) rather than a societal norm for the era

    (one second to spare)(damn, now two seconds over)

    *needs further explaination: isn't it the case that maybe one's activities in one's youth can be excused by one perceiving one is answerable to virtually noone and also. . .
