Do readers of The Lady masturbate?

Astrologer Eric Francis foretold on Madame Arcati that masturbation holds the liberating key to better relationships in the future. A sign that he must be on the right lines comes from Rachel Johnson in the Guardian today, invited for the umpteenth time to talk about her once genteel magazine The Lady: "I can't speculate as to whether Lady readers have masturbated," she says, "but my wild guess is they might have done."

I wonder if the magazine's stately owner Mrs Budworth has given the matter any thought.

they do little else. That''s why they need a house full of staff!

They are rogered senseless by the strapping Angolan butler!

I thought they had the staff to do it for them? A handmaiden and a lady-in-wanking.

They certainly didn't in my day. Perhaps on the Continent they did but English ladies wouldn't even know how to and always waited until the hero came along and gave them a good rogering.

I think Rachel Johnson must masturbate to images of that right wing icon The Hitch sellotaped over her top bunk-bed. As one did in the dormitory at Roedean. Old habbits die hard.

I notice Rachel is quite sensitive to criticism - like most big mouths who talk fast and loose. I notice also that Lesley White's epic piece in the Sunday Times Mag about Rachel and The Lady is not mentioned on the mag's media list. Rachel was quite proud of pulling off that article, but Ben Budworth and his bro thought it awful. Oh dear.
