The things The Guardian will complain about:
In other cases, Tennant made a joke in which he referred to sex acts involving a young girl. In another case, he joked about his wife bringing home a sex toy, but bemoaned that he was considered a “pervert” for buying his own cock plug, which he described using vulgar and obscene terms.
There is in fact a double standard here. Innumerable newspaper sex advice columns suggest that women might think about, possibly should celebrate, buying a vibrator. Not that we’ve actually gone hunting for the proof of this but we would expect a rather different response to a man buying a fleshlight.
