Personal Quotes (3)

Fair play to women if they want to empower themselves or want to go out and buy all their little sex toys. Not my cup of tea personally--I'm quite old-fashioned, which would probably bore the pants off a lot of people. I like my serious relationships. I have a healthy sex life and I don't need any tools. My man does a perfectly good job himself!
I make a conscious decision not to vote as I don't trust anybody that runs the country because you give somebody too much power and they let it go to their heads. Tony Blair is only the front man. He's not necessarily the man that actually pulls the strings
I believe if a child is in a secure, stable environment they can go out into the world fearless. But if a child doesn't have that feeling of security because of the uncertainties around them, it affects them. Probably some of the greatest songwriters in the world are insecure people because they have inner fears.
