that becomes iconic. How amazing! What an
awesome experience in life! That doesn’t
happen to many people. It's never made me
uncomfortable. I know a lot of lesbian and

"Untrammeled homosexuality can take
over and destroy a social system. If you
isolate sexuality as something solely for one's
own personal amusement, and all you want
is the most satisfying orgasm you can get —
and that is what homosexuality seems to be
— then homosexuality seems too powerful to
resist. The evidence is that men do a better
job on men, and women on women, if all you
are looking for is orgasm. ... I’m convinced
that lesbians are particularly good seducers.”

Association following complaints from other

‘To me, Tinky wasn’t a star, or a political
football, or some sad English actor suffocat-
ing inside a dumpy purple blob suit: he was
hot. I didn’t just watch Tinky's TV' show; 1
bought the books, each title more arousing
than the last — ‘Dipsy Dances’, Four Happy
Teletubbies’, "Go Po Go!’ — culminating in
the inevitable erotic explosion of Tubby Cus-
tard Mess.’ I wantedTmky, I wanted him bad,
as he group-hugged and cavorted through
the greensward ofTeletubbyland, swinging a
red patent-leather purse, or as his producers
have dubbed it, his ‘magic bag.’ My mind
reeled: Just what was in that bag? Pills?
Kleenex? Magic cosmetics? 1 had to know."
