            Don’t normally go there. YNZ mostly it. BTW – Jacinda 4 and Bill 4. Objective listening assessment. Public perception? Well, I’ll ‘humbly’ leave that to the ‘public’.

              Possibly. I’ve got this horrible feeling our comms on this aren’t exactly secure from other prying eyes?

              Which is why I didn’t post that link here. I suspect that a lifetime ban from YourNZ would be the least of my worries! Private communications are exempt from suppression orders, just in case you didn’t know…

        You have an ‘instinct’ on this Pants? In all seriousness, she doesn’t seem at ease, the admittedly little, I’ve heard her in the MSM.

          Hard to tell? – appears to be a double hit – sex scandal and earning whilst on the benefit if true.

    • So, we all know that dominatrix, PB, sex worker, MP are synonymous with MOAS and a left wing hit job.

      So much for relentless positivity, so much for people like Rachel Stewart calling themselves feminist. If Labour are complicit with this sort of salacious muckraking, you’d have to ask how they can call themselves Progressive . Wetting themselves about a bit of legal alleged entrepeneurship.

            How would I know Pants? Google it! What I can tell you is that it is irrelevant to the MOAS, as far as I am aware.

          • Doms don’t have sex. Most clients donโ€™t even orgasm during sessions. In BDSM, there is often a ‘masochist-climax’, when the body goes through waves of euphoria induced by the overwhelming sensationsโ€”be it pain, pleasure, or a combination thereof. Domination is part of the sex industry but it’s not prostitution . No client can even touch one
