Last night I went to a hen-night. It was a laugh. My friend is quite well off and rather than have a stripper-gram she hired a naked man to serve us all night, which was quite funny. I suspect we behaved in a more civilised way than his normal experience. He told me he was in Mensa! (bless). He had a big dong, which is probably how he got into that line of work, though he wasn't attractive to me personally, except as a pleasant enough person. He's a male model and he's in one of the shaver ads on telly, so you might recognise him. He was very good at remembering names.

One of the things we did was draw him. I have just tried to scan my pencil sketch (which I am quite proud of) but I can't get the damn scanner to work. If I manage later I'll post again with the pic.

Sorry to have missed it - I found the whole idea utterly terrifying! Were you OK?

Sure, I liked it. I don't think you would have been disturbed by it. I think I know (perhaps I am deluding myself) if a person is less than happy, and I wouldn't have enjoyed it if he hadn't been happy.

I have been wondering whether people reading this have felt that it must have been exploitative or oppressive - in the way a naked woman serving drinks to a dozen clothed men would be. Actually I talked to him about that - he brought the subject up, probably it is a common topic of conversation. He said that... can't remember what exactly, but the gist was that he was safe and relaxed, in a way he didn't think a naked woman would be, and he clearly was.

Later he came to the restaurant with us - with his clothes on - just to keep on talking.

I'm a little bit disturbed by the idea that a naked woman serving drinks is oppressive and exploitative, but a naked man doing the same thing isn't. Surely one has to be consistent?

One doesn't have to be anything, and in this case there is no parity

I really think this is an example of a fundamental difference of opinion between you and me, which we are not likely to change our minds on.

Find this funny - but in political correctness terms not easy to defend! You may as well be a baby-killer.

Hee hee. If you were a politician, this would be enough to finish your career. Just shows how silly the entire 'correctness' thing is.

Bring back humour and a sense of balance.

Also bring back honesty - you found it amusing and interesting. What right does anyone have to impose their views on you and judge? Aware that comment opens up a philosophical can of worms - but (for god's sake) Millie Tant type critics need a sense of humour.

Anyway - glad you enjoyed the evening :-)

LOL - you make it all sound a great deal more scandalous than it actually was.

I'm sure it was all done in the best possible taste (with thanks to Kenny Everett).

People need to chill and worry about worrying things. Hee hee.
