Bum sex in public was too much for my granny
BUM’S RUSH: Some cards joke about anal sex SELECTING a nice greetings card at the shops used to be a gentle, uncomplicated experience.
There was a choice between a chocolate- box scene, a gaudy children’s design or – perhaps the safe middle- class option – a miniature reproduction of a famous artwork.
But when Sarah Jones, 23, went into a card shop in central Birmingham with her 82- year- old gran Joan, the pair were faced with cards openly discussing taboo BUM SEX.
Sarah said: “I’m not a prude, and neither is Gran.
“But some of these cards shocked me, never mind her.
“I mean, one of the cards showed a man holding up a placard reading ‘ I heart anal’.
“Others were festooned with swear words. Not little, harmless swear words either. The big ones – like f** k and c** t.
“Gran looked at one card and went up to read it – as her eyesight’s not too good.
“When she got up close she read ‘ minge’ and said ‘ Oh my goodness!’ “Poor woman.” Daphne Fellows of the British Greeting Cards Forum told “Cards have got more robust in recent years and yes, some do feature anal sex.
“But you never see anything going in. There’s never any of that.”
