Harriet Harman, paedophilia and sexual norms: the past seems like another country - Telegraph
The controversy surrounding Harriet Harman's links to an organisation affiliated with Paedophile Information Exchange, has highlighted how different some 'acceptable' sexual attitudes were in the 1970s. Dr Brooke Magnanti explores sex norms through the ages

Some might be a bit surprised to find that high fashion priestess Chanel would be listed here at Sex-Kitten.net, as a legend we admire. After all, her fashions have been described by many as 'boxy,' and of a 'practical classic style.' Her trademark suit-and-hat ensembles imply a couture for women who aspire to be ladies, not sex kittens.
