Virginia Ironside's Dilemmas: 'I keep having sex with almost every man I go out with'

Dear Virginia, I'm 25 and my problem is that I keep having sex with almost every man I go out with, often on the first date. I don't really enjoy it, but I keep thinking each one might come to something and then I'm so unhappy when the man doesn't contact me. Sometimes the affair lasts longer, but the moment a man falls for me, I turn on him and can't bear to see him. I don't know how I'll ever have a proper relationship. What's wrong with me? Best wishes, Viola

Malcolm Vaughan: Singer who fell foul of the BBC but sold half a million records as a result

In October 1956, Malcolm Vaughan was due to appear on BBC TV's Off The Record to promote his new release, "St. Therese Of The Roses". The invitation was withdrawn a few days later after a BBC committee had determined that the record was unsuitable for broadcast because "the lyric is contrary both to Roman Catholic doctrine and to Protestant sentiment." The resulting controversy helped to sell records, and with airplay on Radio Luxembourg the sugary wedding song climbed to No 3, stayed on the charts for five months and sold half a million copies.

Virginia Ironside's Dilemmas: My lovely wife and I have been through a lot. But there's no spark at all

Dear Virginia,

I've been married for 20 years, and have two wonderful daughters of 12 and 15. My lovely wife and I have been through a lot – redundancy, depression, illness. But there's no spark at all. Sex has been once a year for the last two years, and if I suggest going on a date, my wife says she doesn't want to go anywhere. When I protest, my wife says she'll die soon and I'll be free, or I'll find someone else – but I don't want anyone else, and find the idea of divorce too painful. Can you suggest anything?

Yours sincerely, Peter
