NHS launches web page for w**kers

Please yourself at the taxpayers' expense

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

NSFW The NHS has incurred the wrath of at least one MP by offering a page on its NHS Direct which advises Brits to set aside a bit of "me time" for some light "going solo".

According to UK tabloid The Sun, this outrage has provoked Tory MP Adam Holloway to pile into the "wonks" responsible for the "crazy" idea. He thundered: "If this is their way of looking after patients and saving money they need serious treatment."

In fact, the online guide to self-satisfaction is part of a steamy "Two thousand and SEX!" initiatiative, which the NHS described as a bit of "light relief". As the blurb explains:

Fancy finding out how to fine-tune your orgasm ability? Want to boost your bedroom antics with some new toys? Well, don’t sweat it – we’re chock-a-block with top tips to whip your sexual self into shape and double your pleasure.

Phwoooar! The NHS advises that we should not link to the page since it is "not permanent content". Mind you, it also says the piece was first published on 01/01/1900 - proof were it needed that our Victorian ancestors liked to start their new centuries with a bang. Good show. ®
