Was away from the office for more than a week and came back to an office in which almost everyone said they were disgusted. The subject in question is a story in The Jakarta Post headlined More Sex Please, We’re British.
The story is about a 72-year-old Brit, Sheldon Archer, who’s married a 23 year-old Indonesian Yuyun and about their self-proclaimed blissful life in and out of the bedroom. The couple also runs a get-an-Indonesian-wife agency for would-be sheldons.
One of my colleagues was so disgusted with the story that she blogged in our office blog: “I have nothing against interracial/multinational marriages, but I’m personally sickened by the insensitive and ruthless comments given by Sheldon Archer…”and said she’s write to Srikandi, a non-profit organization in Indonesia for local women who are married – or were married – to foreigners, to ask their views about this.
The age difference is one thing; the comments emanating from the man is quite another. See for yourself:
