With oats. Sort of muesli.So I've been getting my oats, I suppose; now I'll have to be careful not to get my just desserts after dinner Wed 02 Jul 2008 08:25:06 GMT+1 mittfh http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/sex.shtml?page=85#comment12 Surely if that age group are into Information Technology, then they could practice cybersex and not worry about Standard Trunk Dialling codes :)And why is it those over 45? What is the media's obsession with that number?

Or are they doing a threesome?

(para 8)Can the BBC just reassure us that you can't catch an STI over the internet?Yours expectantly,etc Mon 30 Jun 2008 13:57:54 GMT+1 lordBeddGelert http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/sex.shtml?page=28#comment4 Why are people surprised about those 'over 45 doing IT' ? There are plenty of 'silver surfers' that are pretty conversant with information technology, and this smacks of ageism a little bit. I'm also failing to understand this British surprise that people have sex. It is as though people like children's television presenters should have to reproduce by 'budding off' to avoid congress of any kind with a member of the opposite sex. By the way surely 'these are some.. bacteria..' ?

Then I read the words. Clearly I have lead a very sheltered life. I think you missed a chance there Eddie, for the "What is this a picture of?" competition. ( Not that you would have been so ungrammatical. ) Actually, having re-read the words again, I see you're actually going to be talking about people over the age of 45 doing Information Technology. Phew. My mistake. Sorry.

Once past that age, they don't see why they need to take care.They also respond badly to being told they've got an STD, especially where they may not themselves have any symptoms....I think if I end up single again when I'm older, I'll stay single and celibate!!! (sorry to disappoint any male froggers who might have been planning ahead.....!);o) Mon 30 Jun 2008 13:16:03 GMT+1 U12196018 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/sex.shtml?page=7#comment1 The melons don't look too tempting either Mon 30 Jun 2008 13:06:34 GMT+1 Thunderbird http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/sex.shtml?page=0#comment0 I am never eating grapes again !
