"balls, rubber and lingerie"

Sorry, this post isn’t nearly as exciting as the title — but who can resist such a line?

Theo Paphitis sells his 66-strong Contessa lingerie shop chain to Lion Capital — just months after selling his stake in La Senza lingerie. Now Lion is buying his far smaller Contessa business and turning the outlets into La Senza shops.

Paphitis’ wife used to joke that he was into ‘balls, rubber and lingerie’.

I’m not in Paphitis’ league as a business person, but I wouldn’t want to leave the lingerie business — nor lose the ability to say I’m into balls, rubber and lingerie ;)
