    Rather than distribute condoms, I relate to Ms Wayman’s comments on the issue more through a comparison with food. I agree with her in principle. One’s capacity to eat food is limited. If one takes a certain amount of one food it then usually means that one cannot eat as much of another type.

    Some parents, metaphorically, require the dessert to be left whilst they are slowly and thoroughly eating the main course (or visa versa) and blame their fellow guests for not leaving them a share for later.

    Of course having a fuller life, as one does with children, does not give a person as much time in the workplace to grasp opportunities as has a person with a less full life. But we cannot expect them to freeze part of the food of life until others have digested their own self selected feast.
