An indecent proposition?

November 19, 2009

Alan McKee asks if a social scientist can say "titwank" ("When it comes to pornography, vulgar humanities are happy to talk turkey", 12 November). As a humanities scholar, I can't really answer, but it is a shame that McKee works in Australia, as I'd love to see a department in the REF claiming the wider cultural impact of work on "titwanking" and "turkey slapping".
