That must’ve been some hand job

This story is a bit sad really. An Aussie bloke gets a transcendental handjob in the early 1970s from a Christchurch woman. Now he’s trying to track the woman down. She was a therapist evidently. [snigger]

In 1973, Australian tourist Kirk Warren shared a brief romance with a Christchurch girl.

Now, on his first visit back to the city since the “hook-up”, Warren wants to see her again.

Warren visited the city in December 1973 when he was a 23-year-old student over from Australia for a summer holiday.

“A friend and I came over for a holiday and we signed up for a transcendental meditation course. Being the 70s this was all the rage. Then I met a woman and we hooked up for a few days.”

The pair shared a brief, but intense, romance.

“I remember riding around the city on the back of her motorbike with no helmet on. We had two or three nights together but, although it was the wild 70s and I did sleep in her bed and we kissed, we didn’t have sex.”

The woman asked Warren to move to Christchurch, but he decided to return home instead.

“She asked me to transfer universities and move in with her, but I decided not to. I only had $10 and a ticket home. We wrote to each other for a while but then lost touch. Who knows what would have happened if I had stayed?”

Now, nearly 40 years later, Warren has returned for a holiday and wants to find her.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
