By day, advertising executive Reece Shadbolt worked hard to convince New Zealand women that Toffee Pops were all they needed for a satisfied sex life.How does she do it? I speak of Carolyne Meng-Yee, the Herald's special correspondent for sordid affairs, a woman who can make you feel dirty just for reading her copy and who can make any subject, however grave, seem tacky. It was she, of course, who pursued Professor Peter Davis with prurient curiosity. It was she who was described by the Herald as another of New Zealand's most respected journalists. It is she who includes the word tragedy in every story she writes.
But by night, the man behind the Carlos Spencer chocolate biscuit ads demanded far more to satisfy his own sexual appetite.
In other news, a rich man has a leaky home; and a scientist with smashed ribs was taken on a mercy dash. Don't say nothing ever happens in New Zealand.
