Barbara and Allen Pease tell their story

In the old days of Woman's Hour the programme used to issue a health warning at the beginning of any item that might be a little racy for our younger listeners. Today we reinstate the tradition - so if you're a man - there may be material in this conversation that could cause you some pain.

The Definitive Book of Body Language is published by Orion in December, ISBN:0752858785
