With so many companies now 'laddering' their thinking to words like 'goodness' or happiness', or pondering their wider societal purpose, it's still worth remembering the value of a good ol' fashion (post-modern) sell.

What we see in Football Manager is the replacement of the real playmate with a virtual one so that every gamer can take successful revenge on the computer.

This zesty play, as I said earlier, is really about relationships, solid and true to life ... not that any of the protagonists had the answer as to how they might work properly. Surely now they should all head to Freud's couch.

I don't think it should surprise anyone that women's pleasure is not top the list when it comes to pornography in the first place- the fact that it is being banned, just further reinforces what we already know: Porn is made for men.

What do you know about women's orgasms? If you're a woman you know about your own ones but you're probably in the dark about whether they're the same in quality and quantity as your friends' (they're probably not) and if you're a man, unless you're particularly attentive, the whole thing is most likely a total mystery.

In the 19th century the very British game of rugby football was adopted successfully throughout her Dominions; by 1906, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa were regularly beating us at our own game. In the years preceding the First World War, rugby tried to conquer territories closer to home with expeditionary forays into Continental Europe.

Love is a losing game. Or, in economic terms, a 'second-best' situation where one or more optimality conditions cannot possibly be satisfied.

Reclaiming the C**t

What baffles me is where are the people who should be standing up asking why in this day and age we still rate people based on their looks? Being a feminist isn't about tasting your period, not shaving or hating men. Being a feminist (for me) is realising that you are beautiful, smart and interesting enough and don't need the media to tell you other wise. Being a feminist (again, for me), is about having that confidence to be the best woman you can be, and not hiding behind your vagina, but instead reclaiming your c**t.
