Janet Street-Porter ‘always has sex on the first date’
The broadcaster and self-titled gobby queen of Fleet Street Janet Street-Porter has revealed how she always has sex on the first date to find out if the man is worth a second encounter.
Miss Street-Porter, 61, who has been married four times already, spilt the beans during a talk at the Cheltenham Literature Festival.
“I always have sex on the first date because if they’re crap there won’t be a second date,” she announced.
However, she settled down with Peter Spanton, a 53-year-old ex-restaurateur-turned-psychotherapy student, ten years ago, swapping her busy love life for one of monogamy.
She told one interviewer earlier this year that she no longer sees sex as a central part of her life, as it was ten years ago.
“I still like sex, obviously, but it’s not something that I’m completely obsessed about,” she said.
“I don’t go into a room and think I could pull someone though that’s definitely how I used to think.”
The I’m a Celebrity contestant, who has a slot examining food issues on chef Gordon Ramsay’s F-Word, claims to have now discovered the secret to a lasting relationship: not to see too much of each other.
Her previous marriages were to photographer Tim Street-Porter, Time Out publisher Tony Elliott and film director Frank Cvitanovich. Her last, brief marriage, to David Sorkin, a salesman 22 years her junior, took place at 3.30am in Las Vegas.
