I was 15 when I first realised my tallness was a turn on to women.
The lighting was low, the music was loud and my stomach was doing the hokey cokey.
She gave me the once over, looked into my eyes and said: “I like ‘em tall” and that was that.
I woke up three hours later, delirious and deflowered, surrounded by bin bags in an alleyway somewhere on the outskirts of Bristol. She taught me a few things that night (a few more than I care to divulge here), but what I remember most was the sheer maniacal look on Jemima’s face when she realised how tall I was – it was a look I would soon become accustomed to and learn to use to my advantage.
There’s a reason I clearly state I'm 6’5” on my Tinder profile, let’s put it that way. Why does being tall work so well when it comes to meeting women?
Yesterday in Telegraph Men, body image expert Natasha Devon said that many of the woman she has spoken to say they are looking for a partner who is taller than them (a particular problem for tall women).
My first night in a club, I was promised by my older cousin, would be a night I would never forget.Twenty minutes through the door and ten Aftershocks later and it already felt like a night I would never remember – and then came Jemima.
