by Eric Edwards
The Swinging Sixties, the Beatles, sexual liberation and promiscuity - Riccarsham Ladies' Union are missing out: they desire to be part of the action.
Their committee debates the matter - there will be an orgy, maybe a series of orgies, and there will be brandings, maybe a series of brandings.
Those brandings will become a mark of ownership, quality and approval.
Enter a confidence trickster who seeks out wealthy widows.
Bert Hedges has had many aliases and assumed professions in his time, but here he is trying a new ploy: he will be a parson.
He finds that the power of the dog collar is phenomenal; it provides him with a passport to the confidences, and bedrooms, of numerous women.
This tale is tongue-in-cheek, humorous, provocative, maybe salacious, but there is no bad language and no descriptions of organs or bodily functions.
It is all in the best possible taste - well, almost.
