I loved being a glamor girl – now bright activists have reduced her to OnlyFans flashing underwear in the bathroom

This week’s run on ’90s glamor girls was a long-overdue ray of sunshine in these dark times.

So nice to have a little throwback to the days when girls (including me – FHM, GQ) posed for magazines and photoshoots with a good dose of glamor and a dash of provocation and suggestion.

Never too much, but just enough to tickle. I will forever be grateful for the shoots I did because they helped me discover a different side of myself and most importantly it was fun and often a conversation starter.

I look at the covers of magazines these days and they all seem a bit boring.

Where have all the daring girls gone? Could it be that the glamor model has been pushed underground by activists who find it too much for their stomachs?

Because the only chance to see something enticing, stimulating or even interesting these days is on a subscription platform like Only Fans, where people/women have been reduced to posing in their underwear in their bathroom.

I really enjoyed my photo shoots. Did I feel objectified? no I felt in control.

I may not have controlled the minds of those viewing the images, but I controlled how I felt.

After all, “sexy” is a state of mind, as Louise Redknapp says, it’s not about not wearing anything, it’s about feeling and exuding sexiness no matter what you’re in.

If women want to pose in sexy shoots, why wouldn’t they? I miss those old days and hope we can bring some rock ‘n’ roll back to the proceedings.

The ban on hugs in school goes a bit too far

IF Whitney Houston was right and children are indeed our future, why were idiot adults blamed for them?

Because in all honesty, it turns out that some are as crazy as a box of frogs.

I had to reassure myself it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke when I learned that Greater Manchester’s Mossley Hollins High School had decided to ban “hugging, high fives and shaking hands” in a strict no-contact rule announced by Headmistress Andrea Din.

Oh, she looked so proud of herself. This secondary school bee claimed that implementing these new rules will result in an “enhanced culture” and encourage “mutual respect” at her school.

Students were told not to sit on crowded benches, there could be no “fighting” and under no circumstances could a student save a seat for a friend at lunch. God forbid.

It is rule making like this that makes me question the experience and intelligence of adults in authority.

Who on earth came up with this strategy? And what do you think, other than maybe reducing the spread of head lice?

But what are a few nits between friends?

Rather, this will create a world where wakefulness kills any display of humanity and humility.

One student commented on Facebook that he had to ask a teacher’s permission to comfort a friend. Absolute madness.

Sure, we’ve had #MeToo and we’ve all had to learn to respect each other’s personal space more fully and empathetically, but that kind of approach in a school is guaranteed to do more harm than good.

If we are so busy educating everyone about inappropriate touch, we also have a fundamental duty to give people the right to engage in appropriate contact. How else can there be perspective?

There have been many aspects of the pandemic and lockdowns that have damaged and traumatized us, but one that I found the hardest to take on a day-to-day basis was seeing people on dog walks or in shops and not being able to give them one hell of a hug.

You don’t have to be a tactile person to enjoy a hug or a hand touch—it’s human nature. It’s a crucial part of how we function.

Human touch comforts, gives security and conveys more than words ever could.

I didn’t have a loving childhood, none of my parents were that expressive.

But when I went to school, I had my group of girlfriends with whom there was always a physical exchange.

We played around on the field at lunchtime, lay next to each other, close enough for a hug and a sense of belonging.

We fooled around and got physical because it was an important part of the way we communicated. When someone was upset, a hug or an arm around someone’s shoulder showed compassion and tenderness, sometimes sympathy.

Boys who were less emotionally mature would also use body language. Their way of expressing how they felt about you was invariably to get close in a joking manner.

None of this was inappropriate, although at the time the lines were blurred and we weren’t as mindful of what was inappropriate.

But it was definitely part of our learning and understanding about each other’s behavior and the meaning behind it.

Ridiculous rules

Controlling people’s instinct to literally reach out certainly kills the very thing that makes us human. We need and crave human touch, whether we know it or not.

Which begs the question: What’s next?

Is someone going to invent some sort of “consent app” for your phone that will alert you to what level of contact is allowed?

Will they ban eye contact?

A no-touch ban would only confuse students about what actually is “normal.” It would teach them that touch is something negative and that would undoubtedly make their emotional intelligence more difficult.

We can’t seriously want our children running around school like robots that lack emotion and expression?

Thank God the parents caused such an outcry that Ms. Din was forced to back down and apologize yesterday.

She admitted on the school’s website, “We agree that appropriate human contact is a good thing and warms human friendships when both sides are in favor of it.”

What the world really needs right now is more touching, more displays of affection, and, if you will, more old-fashioned fooling around.

love the body you have

THE sublime dame Emma Thompson has spoken about how “tragic and regrettable” it was how much time she spent worrying about the shape of her body when she was young.

In her latest film, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, she plays a widowed, retired school teacher who seeks sex with a significantly younger male sex worker.

In one scene she has to face her aging body in the mirror and learns to accept it.

As women, accepting our bodies for what they are is less of a destination and more of a journey.

We have been programmed by society and dare I say patriarchy to always strive for some kind of artificial, unattainable perfection. When I was young, I naturally had crippling doubts, confusion, and hesitations about my body.

I only wish I had accepted it more back then and enjoyed its innocence and youthfulness.

If only I had known the dismay I would feel as it ages with all its hallmarks of decay and decay.

Today I try to “accept” the form every day, but I don’t always succeed. It’s incredibly difficult to listen to your strong inner voice when you have a monkey on your back telling you that you’re not up to the task and that you really should look better.

So, for all the young women out there who are bombarded with images of ideals and perfection, try to love your body as much as you can, despite all of its uniqueness and quirks, because the reality is that we – deep down – all the same fight battle.

And none of us are quite happy with the cards we got.

Good at Brad

I MAY be the only exception in the entire female population who never really liked Brad Pitt despite boundless admiration for his creative talents.

The golden boy of Hollywood with his archetypal masculine looks. Cheekbones chiseled by the gods and a chin that could open a beer bottle just by looking at it.

Piercing blue eyes and a slightly pouting lower lip. He’s the epitome of handsomeness, but I think I’ve always liked my boys with their quirkier looks.

However, hearing him talk about his life after divorcing Angelina Jolie is enough to warm the cockles of even the coldest of hearts.

He has embraced a life of abstinence, giving up alcohol and fags.

He’s been through therapy and has concluded that “all of our hearts are broken” because we’ve all “experienced a heartbreaking heartbreak at some point.”

Of course he’s right. Those who claim that life is rosy and always has been have no layers about them and interest me little.

It is only episodes of darkness in our lives that allow us to appreciate the light.

So now I’m stuffed for losing my heart to Brad. Any man who gets in touch with his emotions goes straight to the top of my list.

This is mainly because I currently live in a world of emotionally constipated men.

A world where a man’s idea of ​​being a sentient being is to reply to a text message three days later.

The bar is incredibly low. In fact, the bar is in hell right now. I loved being a glamor girl – now bright activists have reduced her to OnlyFans flashing underwear in the bathroom
