In October it'll be exactly 50 years since Mervyn Griffith-Jones asked the question if (Lady Chatterley's Lover by DH Lawrence) was the sort of book "you would wish your wife or servants to read". How the world has changed in just 50 short years. A man's dominion over his wife has all but disappeared. Gone are the men of moral substance who were willing to apply the cane of obedience to both wife and child. The recalcitrant child would usually receive 5 strokes of a bamboo cane over his/her outstretched hand whereas the wife would be required to supplicate herself over her husband's knee with skirts raised and knickers lowered to receive her man's corrective hand. Women enjoyed the attention of an upright man and welcomed his correction and guidance. Life was so much easier because she had little reason to worry her head over 'serious' issues and affairs of state, she could concentrate on the kitchen and the nursery and with making herself presentable for her man's homecoming at the end of his busy but important day. Is it so long ago that a woman's only goal was to satisfy her husband without selfish demands to fulfil 'her needs'? What decent woman had 'her needs' anyway? If a man wanted dirty sex then he employed a professional to cater to his baser needs. He always remembered that it was his wife who was closest to his offspring it was important not to have her distracted by lewd thoughts. Life has become to complicated for modern woman, what measures would you introduce to instigate a "return to basics"?
