“I Love Beverly Flynn’s Testosterone”
Feeling oddly discomforted, as I am sure you will soon, I read the preview to the ‘hot’, ‘saucy’ and ‘steamy’ Eoghan Harris (!) interview in Hot Press. The though of Senator Harris holding forth on eroticism – among other topics – isn’t exactly making me run out to purchase but it is good to see our older politicians remain in touch, like good time Charlie in his pomp. The Examiner is kind enough to furnish us with some choice quotes;
“I really admire Beverly Flynn. I love her testosterone, her energy and her sense of fun. And I love the women in the Seanad,” he said.
“I have always liked the erotic dimension in women. People say to me, ‘Well, you would because you’re getting older and you’re not able to do it any more!’ And there’s a lot of truth in that! There is a decline of sexual function, there’s no point pretending there isn’t,” he informs as he reveals his new, younger wife gets as much out of the marriage as he does because they are “political soul mates”.
Is this part of the plan to bring the Dail closer to the people? It is a better read than his Sunday column, mind.
