Interview with Claire Atkins from SHIT

I saw SHIT last year and I was blown away. Incredible script. Incredible acting.

KP Freise, Crabbes Creek

I’d almost finished reading Mandy’s soapbox on my verandah when a bull ant crawled on my naked belly. I snapped it off as it was about to start committing violence against me. It must have been a male!

I have a better solution: instead of a sex strike, which would make men more aggressive, teach them tantric sex.  Since learning tantric sex my partner is so peaceful and loving.

Do it for an hour or longer and the man’s in paradise – for more than five minutes.

It’s more than worth doing it about three times a week – if you’re retired you can do it every day. You will have a cuddly lamb in your house instead of a wolf.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. I don’t know if these responses to Mandy’s column are meant to be jokes or not but domestic violence is too serious and pervasive an issue for levity. These explanations/solutions ignore the data surrounding the issue that show its occurrence crosses all boundaries of age, education, demography and socio-econic status. They do not explain the doggedness of men who pursue and stalk, murder or terrorise their spouses.

    If it’s just a matter of failing beauty, lack of attention or unsatisfactory sex, Whitlam’s legacy of no-fault divorce has offered a much more civilised alternative.
