Lisa Ventura is licking her wounds. Who she? I hear you ask. She's the Tory council candidate in Worcester who lost a by-election with a 17% swing to Labour, thereby causing the Tories to lose control of Worcester Council. Apparently the swing against her was so large because Labour alerted people to her website, which sells, ahem, adult material to women. The domain name of the website is www.eroticfiction.org.uk and from that you might expect that it sells a few naughty books. Well it does, but the actual name of the site is Wicked Tickles. Matron! It describes what it sells as "Literotica" (among other things of a more buzzing nature). The good burghers of Worcester seems to be a rather small minded lot and rather than congratulate Ms Ventura for her enterprising venture, they punished her. The full story is HERE.
In a Richard LittleJohn 'you couldn't make it up' moment, the local newspaper report reveals that Ms Ventura lives in Beaver Close, Lower Wick. If you haven't seen the film Porkies, you may well be scratching your head and wondering why that should be funny. Trust me, it is.
Anyway, should you be in the mood for a Wicked Tickles, do visit Ms Ventura's website and make a few purchases to brighten up an otherwise dull weekend.
