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.”
