Lady Chatterley Lingerie?

The trustees of novelist D H Lawrence’s estate are upset over the Ann Summers plan for lingerie named Lady Chatterley after the title of his 1928 novel, “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”.

While several porn films have been made over the years, the estate claims they are upset because Lawrence himself wrote in his 1929 essay A Propos of Lady Chatterley’s Lover that sex had been “reduced to lady’s underclothing and the fumbling therewith,” and that men were excited by nothing more than “meaningless young women in expensive underclothes”.
