LETTER: Messy sex

Sir: Deborah Orr must lead a very sheltered life. Surely, heterosexual life is no less "messy" than homosexual ("A subtle (but dangerous) new prejudice", 1 February). Ninety-nine per cent of the cards in telephone boxes advertising sexual services, for example, are directed at heterosexuals and advertisers usually expect replies, indicating that they are answering a demand. If there is any difference between heterosexual and homosexual lifestyles, perhaps it is that the latter are just a little more honest, both with themselves and everyone else.
