VERITY LUSH: Green shoots of recovery sprouting in northern Portsmouth

Oxford-educated businesswoman Cindy Gallop, 52, has launched a web platform for adult films made by couples, showing the warts-and-all reality of their sex lives.

Makelovenotporn.tv will be a counter argument to hard-core porn, which she fears is badly misleading teenagers as to what is considerate behaviour in the bedroom.

She hopes the site will explode myths such as the idea that women should be entirely hairless.

The Victorian art historian Ruskin allegedly failed to consummate his marriage to Effie Gray, such was his shock that her body was not like hairless nudes in Pre-Raphaelite paintings. It is worrying that the ubiquity of hardcore has regressed today’s teenagers to an equivalent state of ignorance.
