Sent Off For A Meaty Tackle…

A newspaper report that couldn’t fail to catch my eye was the story of Aaron Eccleston, an amateur footballer in Australia, who was shown a second yellow card in a game after the referee realised he had a Prince Albert piercing.  (Insert your own ‘off-the-ball incident’ joke here.) When I wrote a story for the Xcite Gay Love collection, Put A Ring On It, in which the football-playing narrator discovers his bset friend not only has exactly the same piercing but a delightfully dominant streak to go with it, I wondered if the idea might be a little unlikely. Now I realise I nailed it right on the – er – head…
