Is that just the gearstick or are you pleased to see me?

We all know that talking on a mobile phone while driving (except with a hands-free setup) is an offence. However, having sex while driving apparently isn’t, at least in Germany. Can anyone offer an opinion on which kama sutra position would be most consistent with road safety?

LOL – the last line is the kicker.

Maybe he’ll get the money back by writing a Penthouse Forum letter – providing they accept non-fiction submissions.

They might need to commission a series of public-safety advertisements to outline the dangers of this rather reckless behaviour (attempting to keep a straight face)

The problem is such advertisements (which of course would send members of the Lyons Forum into hysterics), might actually encourage this sort of behaviour. I can just see young men hypnotised to the advertisement thinking: “I hadn’t thought of using Dad’s Jaguar for that purpose.”

I remember a Sydney radio stations got into a little trouble for running a competition a few years ago to determine which couple could obtain the first bonk in the Sydney Harbour Tunnel. Encouraging such reckless behaviour, the yoof of today, they have no respect for good ole fashioned morales like stoning adulterers and all that stoof.

Of course before signing off, there has to be impligatory reference to C.J. Ballard’s ‘Crash’. Yes, I know, car-accidents-orgasms, all that danger, sex and death. Mind you I’ve never really thought of car-accidents as being the slightest bit sexually simulating. Having your head slam into the steering wheel just isn’t that arousing. Although there might be considerable relief upon regaining consciousness and discovering your loins are still in tact. Maybe I’m just another of those wowsers, who thinks sex in a five-car pile-up just isn’t for me. Anyone got any details how I can get my Call to Australia membership, I’m sure Fred Nile will set me straight.

Oh and one more thing, I’ve never had the same innocent perception of car-washes, after seeing David Cronenberg’s adaptation of the book.

I’d better have a little lie down now.
