Here's to all the amazing, ballsy, crazy, feminist, fun, inspirational, queer, straight women in my life. The day means different things to different people; if you were to ask a Russian, it's about flowers and gifts and the celebration of a woman. In this country it's more to do with celebration of feminism and feminist achievement. And of course, it's also to do with things like this.

This image... are you seeing what I'm seeing? I should probably relocate my mind a bit... errr... higher, no?

Stan: Chef, how do you make a woman like you more than any other guy?
Chef: Oh, that's easy! You just gotta find the clitoris!
Stan: Huh?
Chef: Whoops!
Stan: What does that mean? Find the clitoris?
Chef: Uh....uh...forget I said anything!

The location of the clitoris is hardly a secret these days. However, women are still uncharted countries full of crazy mysteries. Or, to be more precise, one part of their body is...

"Andrea Burri, who led the research, said she was anxious to remove feelings of “inadequacy or underachievement” that might affect women who feared they lacked a G-spot."

I hope these words were taken out of context because otherwise that would be a bit of a shaky premise for an unbiased study. So what of the women who have experienced it - is it all in the mind, then? Because faking a G-spot orgasm would be pretty fucking difficult. And to what aim? Because I'm told I'm supposed to have it, alongside a bank account and a six-weekly haircut?

One of these days I'll verbalise my rant against the mainstream view of female sexuality and the misplaced expectations. Currently I don't have the time so it'll have to wait, but trust me I have plenty to say...

Anyway, fear not, because the sexually liberated, non-frigid French strike back, restoring the "inadequacy" of British women right back where it belongs! Hoorah!

Don't you just love the British media. Clever slogans, an unusual take on political correctness AND a British vs French battle all thrown in for the same price...

What would you say if someone informed you that she wouldn't watch Quantum of Solace out of principle because the whole James Bond franchise was sexist?

I said, "Sure it is".
She: "So you think it's all right? Are you not a feminist?"
Me: "Of course I'm a feminist. But... eh... what's wrong with watching a shitload of fights and explosions, having a great laugh and forgetting all about it once you've stepped out of the cinema?"

She looked at me accusingly.

Did I threaten my feminist status by saying that??

I'm watching Quantum of Solace this weekend by the way.
