James Bond creator Ian Fleming takes pop at female drivers and those looking for casual sex in ‘guide to life’ 0 136

JAMES Bond creator Ian Fleming was wary of female drivers — and those looking for casual sex, a notebook of his musings reveals.

Among his observations was a 13-point guide on how to live.

It included the less-than-PC advice: “Beware of motorcars with two women in the front seat.”

He also suggested steering well clear of women who wear a bracelet on their left ankles — widely thought to be a come-on to anyone looking for casual sex or extra-marital affair.

The 39-page notebook, has emerged for sale in the US today.

It is expected to be a hit with fans of Bond, played most recently on film by Daniel Craig, and could fetch £17,000.

His warnings, however, are not just confined to women, as he suggests: “Tread carefully in the company of moustaches, sideburns, or beards.”

Fleming, the wealthy son of an MP, appears none too keen on the ruling class, saying: “Avoid people who call you ‘Old Boy’, and all politicians.”

Pets were also deemed a no-no as the writer warned: “Don’t buy anything that eats.”

The heavy smoker and drinker who died of heart disease aged 56 in 1964, advocates restraint but adds: “Don’t worry about cirrhosis of the liver or cancer.”

And in a nod to the book he was writing, his last words of advice were: “Live until you’re dead.”

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 259

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
