"My sense is that there is much more gay sex in politics (especially among Tories)-- often involving researchers, political advisers and lobbyists, than there is straight sex. Am I right -- or just jealous - although those are not mutually exclusive categories."
"You never asked if we'd slept with any, ahem, prominent bloggers..."
"I am Labour but Tory men are sexier."
"I'm strangely drawn to Nadine Dorries, although I'm the same age as her oldest daughter! Just kidding. But I do enjoy her blog. Attractive female MPs with outspoken blogs can be quite sexy though."
"As far as Clegg's admission goes, I am pretty uninterested. However, I think that there is one question that does need to be answered: of those thirty or so women, Nick, were any of them sober or, indeed, conscious at the time?"
"It has long been my practice to cast my vote for the candidate who offers personal attention and delivery of the services I seek. Should Caroline Flint or Julia Goldsworthy wish to demonstrate their personal services (without prejudice of course)I would be happy to arrange an appointment. Obviously my vote would go to the one able to offer continued service after voting. In the event of a busy schedule I may (subject to prior consultation and agreement) accept occasional substitutions by at least equally talented friends of the successful vote seeker. Naturally any incurred expenses (hotel, etc.) would have to be met by the political party offering the services of the vote seeker. Good luck girls!"
"In my experience, Conservatives are more 'professional' in bed, whereas those on the left are distinctly more passionate. Conservatives are more difficult (standoffish/choosy) to get in to bed from the outset, but once the rubicon has been crossed, there is no limit activity, whereas those on the left are less prudish and more open to different sorts of partners, but draw a line in activities and frequency once a relationship has been established. Sleeping with people of a radically different political persuasion is more fun for the first few weeks, but doomed in the long-term. Sleeping with people of a similar political persuasion is less electric in the first-instance, but allows for a more rounded relationship in the long-term. Not much of an insight, but true, I think."
"Working as young researcher in the Commons, (as it happens at the height of the Back to Basics era), I had to take large group of very attractive female sixth formers around the Palace of Westminster. Lowly though I was, the aphrodisac effect of 'power' was tangible, and you could cut the sexual tension with a knife.... and that's all I'd better say! The party conferences are obviously the archetypal arena for all sorts of liaisons. I've been to conferences of all political hues and straw polls with colleagues suggest that the Conservatives have a better selection than the others, combined with an 'aptitude' as good or possibly better than the others. It's not all fleeting moments either - I have met three former girlfriends while down at the seaside - one was a Labour actvist who was clearly turned on by the idea of being seduced by a Tory at a Labour Party conference! I'm told however that for sheer volume of promiscuity and illicit conference affairs the political conferences are beaten hands down by the teachers - specifically the NUT. "
"Bloggers tend to be politicians too good looking for Parliament."
"Never slept with an MP - but years ago I did sleep with my Tory MP's daughter.... Fond memories!"
"I slept with 5 different people at the Blackpool party conference this year. Both men and women. I also once received a **** *** in our association office."
"Isn't having sex with an MP against the law? I thought trans-species nookie was forbidden."
"I once had sex on top of Robin Cook - a guy I had a one-night stand with had a flat in the same apartment block, I hasten to add..."
"You're totally right about the politics and sex thing. At uni, the members of the Labour Club and the Conservative Future society were notorious for rutting like rabbits. Indeed, owing to the unusually high levels of bisexuality in CF, a spider chart could be created linking the names of just about everyone in the society (with the lines drawn between people who had slept together). I still have that chart, and it contains a couple of 'known names'..."
