Chère Brigitte

GHI is the free weekly paper of Geneva which we faithfully leaf through every week and thus happily find that we steadily can read more and more of the content. Initially it was primarily the personal adds that we fully understood - and unfortunately it wasn't the section that either of us really needed to get established here - but now we can also follow some of the other events in town.

But recently we discussed the oddity of the paper containing 'Dear Abbey' (here called Chère Brigitte) regarding sexual problems. Brigitte answers questions on anything from infidelity to erectile dysfunctions and since the Genevans seem to have an abundance of problems, it is obviously a fine service but is it really suitable for a weekly paper that otherwise concentrates on classifieds?! Not even in the so-called liberal Denmark have we seen something similar.
