Bloody hell, someone talking sense about bansturbation in the Guardian. Whatever next?

And what did I tell you all about smoking porn? Fourth most popular search term in Scotland, where the ban's been in force for longer. The forbidden is sexy, and the denormalizers are idiots.

That is a thoroughly brilliant list of reads DP. Many thanks.
I'm generally scared of spiders but the disco dancing spider is a delight.

I hope you clicked through to the vid set to Daft Punk's Get Lucky? Top stuff. :)

But the comments on the article illustrate the fact that the Fabian indoctrination technique is extremely successful. They were all singing from the same hymn sheet, hardly a dissenting voice. The problem, of course, was with the author rather than the article. He was a........TORY!!!!!!!....(quick, where are the garlic and silver crosses....).

It would have been interesting to read the comments had the author been a fully accredited lefty. That would have given them ideology overload.
