I can hear the sobs from here.
Men and boys of all ages will be saddened if there is any truth in this:
Is Page Three Set To Disappear From The Sun? [source]
I know of one guy in particular who will be drowning his sorrows BIG TIME as he lived for the scantily clad Page 3 girls, and any TV programme that so much as mentioned a hint of tits and bum, he was an avid viewer.
This newspaper first came into circulation in 1964, but the first Page Three picture wasn’t published until November 1970, and in the four years that followed, the pretty topless girls were just that, not nearly completely naked. Over the decades, their attire has got less and less, and the adage of ‘less is more’ does not work here. In fact, the poses aren’t that attractive or imaginative and the smiles just a little forced, even with a fat pay cheque at the end of a session.
(Personally, I used to like the paper for the crossword and puzzle page)
I can also hear the boos and hisses from any full blooded male readers, but would you guys not like to have a little bit of mystery rather than an in-your-face photo-shopped picture?
I’ve got no hangups over nudity in the media or magazines, provided it’s tasteful. I sneaked a look at Mayfair and Playboy under my brother’s bed in the 60s and wondered when I’d get a pair of those (still waiting). In later years, I liked Fiesta because the jokes were good and there was also One for The Ladies, and YES! I did see a copy of Playgirl (and was bored silly).
IMO, today’s women wishing to be famous can only seem to do it by horrendous plastic surgery ‘enhancements’, getting their kit off, or flashing their large ‘assets’, be it arse or boobs (or both), and you ask yourself ‘Are they real’ ?
Well, I’m sorry, but it’s all old hat now. People are bored and want something new, though I guess cute pets won’t actually cut it, and if they started showing photos of cute kids, well, we won’t go there.
