Porn can teach us about the simple mechanics of lesbian and gay sex . It allows us to explore our fantasies and to accept our sex as natural . It enables us to produce images of sex that would otherwise be absent . In the end , porn matters to us because sex matters to us so much . As Preston says : ` One of the reasons we constantly return to sex is -- I think -- that we are always(r) needing to know if this is enough to justify what we go through because of It . Often that 's an emotional issue ; are these emotions worth it ? But because the repercussions are so enormous it becomes a political and social issue as well . ' Now , in the age of AIDS , porn means more to us than ever before . Pornographic imagery has been crucial to the success of safer-sex campaigns .

However , I 'm sure that it will be only a short time before the imaginative gentleman of this funeral business ( or after-care service , as it apparently now likes to be called ) will overcome these problems that in any case may be outweighed by one great advantage to which he points with pride : namely , that it is above all discreet , in that the girlfriend of the departed may view at any time , giving any name , and the wife and family will be none the wiser ! The BBC telephoned . Could I let them have the exact name of the coffin-manufacturers who had supplied me , as they had been inundated with calls asking for it and , having no success with the number supplied by Directory Enquiries , were(tense) needing further information . Odd , I thought , as I confirmed the number which they had been given . I suggested they try again and this time ask for the man who had signed my receipt , and please -- come back to me and tell me what they say . Perhaps it will come as no surprise to my readers to hear not only that all knowledge of selling me a coffin was denied but even that they were now , or ever had been , coffin-manufacturers .

The information necessary to spot such an event as this is not difficult for a well organised customer level database to recognise . In another example , two customers with a joint account notify their bank of change of address . They have been building up balances in their current account for some four months . The number of their monthly transactions and the average value of these transactions has also been growing as they transfer monies from their savings accounts to pay for surveys , place a deposit with estate agents and so forth . Soon(d) they will be needing a personal loan , perhaps for the first time ever , to pay for the carpets , the curtains and the new kitchen . It is too ambitious for a financial organisation to hope to recognise such situations and respond accordingly ? To marketing departments the technological challenge associated with such an approach may appear at first quite daunting . Yet with the development of improved risk management techniques , they find that much of the technological infrastructure is already in place .

Look at the little brown shrivelled sheath where the flower grows from the stalk . Now the texture of the petals and the shape , the edges of the petals . This might take three or four minutes of careful observation . Subject : " Daffodils in a vase " . Imagine the background . Let us suppose we had an art lesson this morning , when it was cold and frosty but fine . Let us go out of doors , put on our coats of course . Let us go and look at that tree . We are always(r) needing to draw trees . Let us examine it carefully . Starting perhaps at the bottom where the trunk comes out of the earth or grass . Are there any roots showing ? Does the trunk come straight out of the ground with parallel or straight sides , larger at the bottom ? Now let your eyes climb up the trunk to the branches , slowly , watching all the time . Does the trunk go straight up , the same width or is it tapering ?

But during the week immediately following the meeting two fortuitous things happened to the chemists that at the time looked too good opportunities to miss . Fleischmann 's hope of 1 March that he would fly out his cells to Harwell had not worked . What he had not bargained for was that the ` fusion ' cell would be deemed a radioactive hazard and so be prevented from getting the urgent clearance for transport across international borders . They were therefore still (d)needing the measurements of the energies of the neutrons , which were necessary as a proof that they were indeed neutrons produced by dd fusion and not somehow spurious . Their first piece of fortune in mid-March was apparently finding a way to do this . Any neutrons produced within the palladium will shoot out of the cell into a surrounding water bath .

As a result , the bank has refused to extend an overdraft to allow the farm to grow the fish on , and the salmon are now starving . Chris Young , SSFA chairman , speaking at the Scottish Fish Farming Conference in Glasgow , said : ` Hopefully there will be some money flowing shortly . So far , the bridging fund has not been applicable to many of the circumstances farmers have been (tense) needing to apply for . ' Mans Jacobssen , director of the IOPCF in London , insisted yesterday that there was no row with the Shetland salmon farmers , and no intentional delay . He confirmed that the Scottish Office money could cover only cash flow difficulties from the oil funds -- not the producers . But there was enough money to compensate farmers , and claims were being worked on as fast as possible .

When news was brought to the hotel that the general had , ` passed on to that great trout loch in the sky ' , people were genuinely saddened because the general had been a much-respected member of the community . However , on the morning of his funeral , two senior guests , reading their papers after breakfast , raised quizzical eyebrows : ` Well , the General will not be needing his loch this morning (a), ' said the one to the other . Newspapers were quietly folded and they headed for the hills . But the old soldier had the last laugh . In spite of their best efforts , the miscreants returned fishless . Another retired military gentleman , a colonel , was a regular visitor to Scourie . He arrived one year with his third wife , and the ashes of his late-lamented second wife tucked away in the boot of his car .

Ted admired it too . ` I guess you wo n't be needing the old Excalibur any more (d)' , he said sadly . I anointed its curves with wax . ` Race you to the line-up ' , I said .
