This sort of thing doesn't come along that often. A sponsored Masturbate-a-thon is being held (tightly one imagines), tomorrow in London. It is intended to help people explore safer sex, talk about masturbation and "dispel the taboos that still surround the subject by coming to a public place and coming in a public place." It's all part of Channel 4's wank week, it seems.
So we are having a chat about it tonight on the show. A mass-debate, if you will.
You can imagine the banter. A few choice phrases overheard in the newsroom:
"Can you get a grip on this, please?"
"Your edit will only last a minute"
"Can you pull this interview off, Sarah?"
"This story really has balls."
"Will this stand up?"
"This piece isn't hard enough, is it?"
"The Church has many members up against this."
I could go on, but my wrists are getting tired.
