Kelly’ s mod­esty in vein

Ciara Kelly, host of Lunchtime Live (New­stalk, week­days) dis­cusses the dis­turb­ing phe­nom­e­non of un­so­licited self­ies of male gen­i­talia be­ing sent to phones. Talk­ing to Ir­ish Times jour­nal­ist Tanya Sweeney, Kelly avoids the icky term “dick pics” – “it’s a bit too much” – but when she refers to con­sen­sual sex­ting and “saucy things in that vein”, she cracks up laugh­ing. “My pro­ducer is look­ing hor­ri­fied be­cause I said ‘vein’,” she says. Kelly duly goes on to reg­u­larly re­peat the word, with con­sid­er­able glee but di­min­ish­ing ef­fect. Mer­ci­fully, there’s no item about ar­ter­ies hard­en­ing.
