I have been researching, teaching, pursuing my art, performing in small venues and writing for over thirty years – building up a massive archive along the way. I am currently weeding and reorganising as I approach the inevitable end of my life.
As an academic, I became aware of Freud during my UEA days. Even in the 1970s, I concluded that the so called sexual revolution was not quite the mini skirts, pill and pop it was hyped up to be. The Female Eunuch was advertised around campus, with stocks piled up in the university bookshop.
So I concluded that there was more to sex and sexual behaviour than what was allegedly obvious and advertised. So not surpsrisingly, I did much research, collecting cuttings, stories and much other data.
Thus comes the inspiration for this new page. I found in a massive box of old papers, a school exercise book of cuttings on the subject of what was then contemporary female sexuality with many grumblers featured. So i am going to gradually copy the book on to this page, and possibly a second page. Here is the cover.
