Only 20 percent, mysteriously, in a camper van.

About 15 percent in a crowd.

No mention of the shrubbery at Glyndebourne, which used to be notorious for frantic rustlings.

    Slow news day?

    A lot of boasting and fantasy, I suspect!

    Thanks for reminding me that I’ve never had sex. 🙁

      ^ I was going to say oh surely you have, but then I read the article and noticed that they specified “with someone else.” Never mind :-\

  4. Player says:

    Hang on, all of the country house opera venues must be rife with what I think is termed “dogging”, no?

    Think of all those car parks, my dear!

    I’m clearly not attending the right festivals.

    I wish I am part of this happy statistics after near three decades of Tanglewood! 🙂

      Well, I only met one conductor – at several concerts in different citiies – to whom I was tempted to offer my room key. I never did – that’s just never my style. What an enormous risk – in many ways – that would have been. (Not that I wasn’t interested in the fellow – but really. How tacky. )

    I think the real question is, what can be done to get that statistic up to 80 or 90 percent (?).

    This could give a whole new meaning to “#metoo”
