Under cover

• Regarding last Saturday's 'Weekend' magazine; when my 12-year-old daughter asked me: "How do you sell sex?" I said to myself: ''I'd better do something.'' And this is it. Why, oh why, again and again, do I have to be bombarded with sexual imagery of borderline taste, whether it be supplement covers, crisp ads, shower gels or gyrating female singers on family shows? Can we not draw a line under the whole thing?

If you feel the need to run an article of that nature -- and I know it's about using your feminine wiles in the workplace (I heard the author's interview on the radio, even that made my skin crawl) -- could you at least do it "under the covers", so to speak, to allow the innocents among us to remain so a little longer.
