I am really pleased that a woman is prepared to say firmly and loudly that all this rubber stuff is not natural to most women and most of us have to make a real effort to go along with our husband’s crazier ideas. We don’t like saying ‘no’ when he is ‘in the mood’ but there never seems to be any half measures and if I don’t put on the dirty, smelly gasmask, then I don’t love him, he says. I will go half way and I was so pleased to be able to point to Helen’s column and say “There, I’ve been telling you that”. Maybe now he’ll listen and maybe he’ll get some of the nicer things I’ve seen in the catalogues rather than the tight fitting suits that make me feel like an express parcel.
