Fry Tweets His Fury Over Newspaper Article

British actor, broadcaster, writer and comedian Stephen Fry has hinted that he will quit Twitter after being criticised for suggesting that women did not enjoy sex as much as men.

Claiming that he was misquoted by The Observer, Fry used Twitter to say:( "So some f*cking paper misquotes a humorous interview I gave, which itself misquoted me and now I'm the Antichrist. I give up."

"Bye bye," he tweeted shortly afterwards.

In an interview with gay magazine Attitude, Fry was quoted making controversial comments on female sexuality, provoking the ire of women journalists and fans across the UK.

Fry reportedly suggested that women only used sex to manipulate a man into a relationship, adding that they do not enjoy it as much as men.

The Observer quoted Fry as saying during the interview: “If women liked sex as much as men, there would be straight cruising areas in the way there are gay cruising areas... It doesn't happen. Why? Because the only women you can have sex with like that wish to be paid for it."
