Love Knoweth No Laws*

19720901-15Owing to certain pressures put upon us by the law, we hold the right to cut, change or refuse to print any personal ads sent to us. We must also warn male ‘minors’ (under 21) that you may have unpleasant legal nasties unloaded on you, and us, if you attempt to use and reply for certain reasons connected with the meeting of someone for immoral purposes, namely making love. Apart from those antiquated legalities, men and women are welcome to use these columns as they wish.

Publications

If you live in
CUPID’S CRESCENT
Watch out, or the Sexual Avenger will get you! Read about his truly dreadful career in the new soft-cover novel:
CUPID’S CRESCENT
by LAURENCE COLLINSON
which is comic and erotic and contains lashings of gayness.
This novel is being published by subscription because even those established British publishers who have been most enthusiastic about it are still hung-up about sex.
The manuscript will go to the printers as soon as there are enough subscribers – not longer than about three months, the author/ publisher hopes. In the meantime, the money will be held in trust and returned if the project fails to get off the ground.
There will be a special limited edition of 350 copies, signed and numbered by the author, at £2.00 per copy. The ordinary edition will sell at £1.00 per copy. Both prices include postage.
