Dear Naomi.

I've looked in the dictionary, "no" is not a synonym for "yes". Could you please explain how you came to the conclusion that "no" doesn't always mean "no"?

Hi Naomi

After reading your article in the Sunday Times it struck me that your sudden lack of sexual feeling may have,been peri-menopause related, perhaps shared by a large cohort
of women nearing 50?

Oh! One more question....

I read the extract from your new book in The Guardian about the cuntini party held by your friend "Alan".....why did you not just walk out when you realised what the salmon fillets represented?

Hi Naomi

You received (rightly, IMO) so much praise for The Beauty Myth but then so much criticism for Fire with Fire. None of your subsequent books have been so well-received.

How do you handle this? Do you feel the weight of expectation to be unrealistic? Do you feel demoralised by negative reviews?

Hello Naomi,

Do you think that it's a good idea to introduce younger teenagers to the idea of a "beauty myth" (e.g. by having them read your book) or do you think it might sometimes cause more problems instead of solving them?

Hello Naomi,

Do you wish you were taken more seriously in the UK?

Hi Naomi,

I know you were a consultant for Al Gore in the olden days. I wondered if there are any current politician's you would like to consult for?

Are we allowed to ask questions about J****n A*****e?

Hi Naomi,

You were interviewed by Ali G a couple of years ago - did they tell you afterwards that it was a farce? Did you want to hit him?
