Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated July 15th, 1996

I'M CHEATING WITH MY BROTHER-IN-LAW

The passion and romance with her husband was dying - then she found what she craved with his younger brother


There's something very alluring for Woman's Day in the intra-family romance. Last week some young girl nicked her sister's boyfriend, and this week a woman who has been faithfully married for 25 years throws caution to the winds and goes for a bit of rumpy-pumpy with her recently divorced brother-in-law. No self-restraint, these people (and no shame when it comes to getting the $100, it seems).

However, this story does serve an important public education function: it reminds us that the easiest way to tell if someone is doing the dirty with their brother's wife is to check if they are wearing a motorcycle helmet. Yes, it seems that safe sex these days involves more than just condoms. Unfortunately, the woman who is pictured posing with the smiling and helmeted Lothario has taken her helmet off (perhaps the better for us to admire her crow's feet). It would be poetic justice if the story finished with her attached to a drip following a road accident, but then that would be a whole story in itself, wouldn't it?
