"Did you know Juliette Binoche masturbates in her new movie?"
No I'm not asking you, it's a question my husband asked me on Sunday, he was reading the Sunday Times Culture magazine and he just asked it out of the blue. I told him no, sorry P, she didn't tell me she was going to masturbate in her latest role, and asked him why he was asking anyway (I know my husband fancies Juliette Binoche) but he just said 'Oh just reading about new film releases, it's called Elles, wouldn't mind seeing it'.
Ah, when P spots a film he likes to look of Ronnie's expected to say yes please that sounds great but when the converse happens P usually says hmm, sounds interesting why don't you see it with one of your friends:) Anyway I googled the movie and it does sound ok and I think Ms Binoche is a great actress, might be a great masturbator too for all I know, perhaps I'll find out and in case you're interested here's a view.
But here's the funny thing, within minutes of P's question I flipped over a page of Style magazine and there was a full double page feature on guess what.. Female Masturbation. It was well written, witty and insightful, exposing the hypocrisy espoused by many women that they don't do it and questioning why it's so all right for men but something secret for women. I asked my husband, being as he appeared to be in a communicative mood, and tuned in to the subject of female masturbation, whether he thought it was a good or bad thing for women to do it. He said he thought it was good, in fact very good. So I asked him if he thought it was good that I should do it and first he looked quizzical as he considered his response, then he said 'why would you need to' followed by 'so do you then?'.
"Would you like to see me some day?" I asked.
"It'd almost certainly get you spanked." Said my husband.
"Before or after?" I was pushing my luck now.
"I'll come back to you on that." Said P and that was the end of it.
I hope he doesn't forget, and I think I will certainly be going to see that film with him, in fact it will probably be me reminding him rather than the other way round.
