The London Evening Standard may have stopped calling itself a ‘national’paper for ABC purposes, but its content continues to set it apart from your typical regional evening papers.
Whereas a vox pop in a regional might be expected, for example, to ask punters for their views on a local planning issue, Tuesday’s Standard carried one that asked Londoners: ‘Have you ever used a sex toy?”
After references to “dildos”, “handcuffs” and “cock rings”, saucy hackette Jasmine Gardner got a ‘yes’reply from Jeff, a 29-year-old consultant. He explained: ‘Wrong, bad and horrible things happened. I put it somewhere and things came out that I wasn’t expecting. Lessons were learned and I will never go back there.”
Too much information? Even for Londoners?
