Tuning fantasy into reality (1968)

1968-01-21 Observer.jpg

[edit]

Another misconception is that fantasy is less effective than reality. I wouldn't object, although I wouldn't arrange it, if an adolescent child of mine was to watch a 'blue film' of a couple making lore, provided that tenderness and pleasure were the touchstones. I agree with the late Lennie Bruce, that uncompromising moralist, that this is probably less damaging than the endless glorification of war or, come to that. the matter-of-fact newsreels of Vietnam. but sadistic sexual fantasy, girls as objects, is surely suspect. This is not a plea to rule out fantasy for children. Dr Who (BBC-1), for example, is perfectly adjusted to exteriorise their fears and anxieties without taking them out of their depths. What is surely wrong is to impose ours.
