At one time I thought I’d interviewed more women than anyone in the world. But the way men’s magazines have now gone, there are poor sods on some publications who have rung up practically every female with a large bosom in both hemispheres. I’d structure that sentence better but the image amuses me too much.

Interviewing 18-year-olds who have done almost nothing except get curves and stand in a photo studio is a challenge. To be fair, some of them are genuine sports stars, or at least celebrities. A surprising number of the rest were “studying” something. All things considered, I tried to make them as entertaining as possible and these are the better efforts. If you are of a Victorian disposition you could skip them altogether. Most of them are for Ralph magazine; the sporty ones for Alpha.
