Dora and Little Hans in the 21st century

This is very amusing and silly and The Guardian shouldn't be publishing such rubbish and really you shouldn't waste too much time reading it.

The birthday present

When her husband turned 40, Charla Muller couldn't decide what to give him, so she offered him guaranteed sex every night for a whole year. Could they manage it? And what would be the effect on their marriage?

though yes, you should forward it to your wife/husband/partner and have a fun, if ultimately futile discussion about sex, which will soon get tied up into teasing considerations of marriage and relationships in late capitalism and, then, finally, winding up with a penetrating exegesis of the Old Testament and full-frontal thoughts on post-feminism. I know I will be.

('Charla Muller was reading Galatians 5.22-23 in her Bible study group'? I might have to take back some of my earlier comments about the pointlessness of religion. Actually, no. Make that double.)

But what really disturbs me were these bits, which leapt out at me like a flasher, i.e. unwelcomed visions of genitalia at those rare times when you don't expect it.

...how would they ensure that the kids (aged seven and five) didn't intrude...

...in her book Muller recalls...
Oh, really? I mean, we ban corporal punishment, but we allow this? Do you think those kids will be dreaming of wolves in trees? In a book?

Happy reading, children. At least you can save time in therapy, cutting through the wild speculation and straight to Exhibit A.
