When I first saw a Mail article decrying the presence of half-naked women on the front covers of Nuts magazine, I thought to myself: well, our friends at Dacre Towers have become a lot more feminist all of a sudden, haven't they? But I needn't have worried.
Today's Mail offers an interesting article up for its readers, about a mum who was annoyed by lads' mags on display in newsagents in full view of her children:
Nestled next to the football album - which was suddenly devoid of interest - was a copy of Nuts magazine, displayed at toddler head-height.
My boy's eyes were popping out of his head as he marvelled at the cover shot of two nubile girls in a steamy embrace, both completely nude but for a generous slick of lip gloss.
Yes... go on...
Their fake breasts bulged as they pawed at each other.
How do you explain pornography and lesbian fantasies to a five-year-old? The answer is, of course, you don't. But you have to say something, don't you?
Funnily enough, the Mail didn't have such a negative attitude towards bare skin on the front covers of magazines only a few days ago, when January Jones turned up on GQ magazine.
"Daily Mail reporter" drooled:
But just in case anyone was under the illusion there were any similarities between the 31-year-old former model turned actress and the fictional desperate housewife, a raunchy photoshoot in men's magazine GQ should pretty much put paid to that.
Tell us more...
January has certainly put Betty's strait-laced image to bed with the revealing shoot in which she poses semi-nude, and in a variety of raunchy poses for the US version of the men's magazine.
Gone are the wasp-waisted day gowns, and in it's place a leather jacket under which she appears to be braless on the magazine cover.
And if the poor mother whose toddler was exposed to the horrors of female nudity while out shopping were to look over her shoulder while she browsed the Mail's website, he might find a lot more to make his 'eyes pop out of his head'. For example:
As ever, Buff The Banana With Paul Dacre exposes the sex-obsessed heart of the Mail's website that aims to drag in casual masturbators with images that aren't a million miles away from the Nuts magazine cover.
