Popbitch wasn’t the first to start peeking at celebrity penises. All we’ve been doing is carrying a flame that was passed down to us from our forebears, including the recently deceased Frank Giles – former editor of the Sunday Times and one of the UK’s trailblazing cockwatchers.
Among the celebrity schlongs he managed to spot in his career, Giles can count some of the greats. He got a glimpse of the Duke Of Windsor, Edward VIII, in the shower and noticed that he sported a full Hollywood (“[hairless] even in places where one would most expect it to be”).
And he once got chatting to Ernest Bevin at the urinal, who famously turned to him, mid-flow, to say: “This is it, Giles! The socialist dream! The means of production, in the hands of the people.”
