Since this site is dedicated to all things Victorian (and Australian), we admit we don’t know the FIRST thing about how things work in the UK!! Perhaps someone can help us with the “Dear Deidre” column in The Sun?? Based on a “letter” posted yesterday, we suspect Dear Deidre either gets the most interesting letters ever, or just makes them up!!
Case in point – I found my wife naked and drinking tea with our neighbour. You’ll need to read the letter for yourself, but we definitely detected an undertone in Deidre’s response that clearly mixes nudism with some sort of sexual undercurrent.
The quick summary is this – guy and his wife (non-nudists) suddenly find themselves with a home-renovating nudist next door. They become friends, everything is fine, but the husband is concerned because it would appear the neighbour’s nudist tendencies are affecting his wife. Sounds like the benefits of non-sexual social nudism are about to be promoted, until:
They’re both pushing the boundaries. Yes, naturists believe it’s normal to walk around unencumbered by clothes but clearly there’s a buzz going on between your wife and the neighbour – at the very least.
Simply banning the guy next door could drive their relationship underground and cause more trouble than it solves.
Eh? A minute ago he was a nudist and she was interested in participating, and suddenly there’s a potential sexual relationship going on?? The advice Deidre gives seems harmless on the surface, but is slightly unsettling when re-read a couple of times – Deidre seems to be suggesting to the clearly concerned husband that his wife is contemplating nudism because he isn’t delivering on their relationship!!
Perhaps we are just being over analytical – any thoughts? Check out the letter and decide for yourself!
