Modern morals keep on sliding

Modern morals keep on sliding

BACKCHAT was wading through the usual pile of mundane press releases when eyes were suddenly drawn to one which sounded promising – it was the mention of wife-swapping and orgies that did it.

Intrigued, Backchat read on, and on closer inspection found it was an analogy drawn from the writers of a guidebook Where to Ski and Snowboard 2000. Co-editor Chris Gill was referring to some of the big tour operators who quote lead-in prices for four adults sharing a room while on their annual skiing holiday.

Thomson, for example, based prices on four adults sharing a room with two queen-sized beds.

Its brochure adds that ‘movies and games are available on request.’ “Presumably, to spice up the orgies,” Gill thinks.
