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.
