Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated May 27th, 1996


She loved her husband, but the passion had long since gone - then a friend talked her into a night out at a male strip joint

First, a warning of a dangerous precedent. The Share A Secret page has shifted from its regular home around page 38 to page 55, past most of the advice columns. We at Gusworld sincerely hope this doesn't presage a reassessment of the section, or even (gasp!) its disappearance.

Anyway, on with the show. There's a dopey looking redhead in the picture, maintaining the longstanding Share A Secret tradition of really tasteless clothing (multicoloured diagonal zig-zags, if you must know). 'Zorro' has the hat, the mask and the sword, but has skipped out in the cape department in favour of posing in a pair of undies (from Bonds, by the look of it). The authenticity of his sword is somewhat compromised by the fact that he has one hand wrapped around the blade and yet isn't bleeding profusely. The woman pictured appears to suffer from the delusion that it is correct stripper etiquette to try and stuff money into the stripper's navel. You'll have to read the story to find out if this is actually the case.
