Report to suggest age ratings for UK magazines
Link Here  full story: Lads Mags...Blaming lads mags for all the world's ills

Nuts magazine The Top Shelf Report, commissioned by Labour MP Claire Curtis-Thomas, will next week recommend that popular men's magazines and newspapers such as the Daily Sport be given age-appropriate "16" and "18" certificates.

A nationwide investigation has revealed that newsagents across the UK are flouting current guidelines and displaying what are, in effect, adult magazines at the eye-level of children aged six to 15 – which has led to a government proposal that they be subject to the same age classifications as films, with some titles off-limits to under-18s.

The display of lads' mags is currently governed by a voluntary code of practice drawn up by the Periodical Publishers Associations (PPA) and the Home Office, which recommends that retailers display them well above children's eye level and away from children's titles or comics.

The report, which has cross-party support from MPs, points out that films screened or sold in the UK are classified by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) and that TV broadcasters must adhere to a 9pm watershed that prevents programmes unsuitable for under-18s being shown before this, yet nothing similar exists for the mainstream press.

Ben Todd, the editor of Zoo, said: We should be treated like a cheeky seaside postcard. In our case, the most revealing aspect is topless pictures, which is no more than you see in The Sun or the Daily Star. So, if any sort of age-restrictions are going to be introduced, I'd expect them to include those papers, too.

The report recommends that the Daily Sport be given an "18" certificate due to the numerous adverts for prostitutes which it contains.

Magazine loses Belgian law suit over cartoon
Link Here

MO Magazine On 25 April a Brussels court sentenced the “anti-globalist”  monthly magazine MO to a payment of 1 euro in moral damages to the businessman George Forrest because the magazine had printed a cartoon on its front page depicting Mr. Forrest, who owns a copper empire in Congo, in the traditional costume of Congo'
s former dictator Mobutu Sese Seko.

The court ruled that freedom of the press, as protected by article 25 of the Belgian Constitution, does not apply to cartoons because article 25, which dates from 1831, applies to “writers” but not to illustrators.

Article 25 of the Belgian Constitution states: The printing press is free; censorship can never be introduced; no deposits can be demanded from the writers, publishers and printers. If the writer is known and has his domicile in Belgium the publisher, printer or distributor cannot be prosecuted.”

Judges Valvekens, De Ridder and Morel of the 20th Chamber of the Court of First Instance in Brussels ruled that The cover illustration cannot be considered to be a direct expression of a thought or opinion protected by the freedom of the press because

Article 25 explicitly refers to ‘the writer.'
 The illustration used on the cover is merely a depiction of a person, and not a writing, to which the exceptional status that applies to offences relating to the printing press has no effect.

Old Sunday Sport front page The Daily Sport, which claims to be the UK'
s only daily paper for men, has been given a new look as it re-launches its mix of daily news, sport, humour, glamour and sex.

Adult advertising and editorial now appears in a 24-page insert, X-tra!.

Whilst the re-launch is not intended to alienate the ‘everyday man'
 who is interested in sex, sport, women and having a laugh, it is intended to make the title more appealing to new readers and mainstream advertisers looking to reach this core audience.

Sport Newspapers Editor-in-Chief, Barry McIlheney commented: With the current trend towards celebrity obsessed, female biased editorial, we want to provide a modern daily newspaper for the great modern British bloke. An important audience which is often underestimated or forgotten and currently isn'
t being catered for elsewhere in the market

Update: Philippines Culture Under Threat...

Nutters see Playboy undermining their fragile religion and culture
Link Here  full story: Playboy in Philippines...Launch of Philippines edition of Playboy

Phillippines Playboy Two lawmakers yesterday bonded with two bishops to criticize Playboy Philippines magazine, saying it will erode cultural and religious ideals.

Joel Villanueva and Marcelino Teodoro said the publication would compound the problem of pornography, long blamed for the rise of sex-related violence such as rape.

Villanueva said: We should all be vigilant and fight the evils of pornography. Sad to say, we cannot expect this administration to promote righteousness and moral values .

Teodoro said Playboy Philippines should seriously consider the sensitivities of the populace before coming out with their photos, news and feature articles: Filipinos are predominantly conservative and the magazine will degenerate cultural and religious ideals .

The lawmakers echoed the sentiments of Monsignor Pedro Quitorio, media director of Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, and Palawan Bishop Pedro Arigo.

Publisher Beting Dolor reassured critics that the local approach would be “conservative” and will avoid frontal nudity. He describes the magazine as a venue for mature literature and intelligent discussion of issues.

Quitorio is unimpressed: We have more than enough problems now to take care of and now we have to deal with another moral problem?

Update: Go Go Gonzales

15th April

Citizens Battle Against Corruption Representative Cinchona Cruz-Gonzales said the launching of Playboy magazine would “contribute to the increasing medium of promoting pornography and women exploitation in the Philippines.”

Heeding the call of nutter groups against the launch of the Philippine version of the world famous magazine, Gonzales sought to push the enactment of House Bill No. 998 or the IPOD (Immorality, Pornography and Obscenity) Act of 2007.

South Carolina state seal South Carolina State Senator Mike Fair wants to add a 20% surcharge on magazines like Playboy and Hustler that show frontal nudity. He says the tax hike would raise $385,000 dollars for the state to pay for tracking devices for sex offenders.

Just as we're trying to do with cigarettes, we have tried to do and continue to try to do with alcohol, is lets the users of those products pay for some of the consequences that come from that, Fair explained.

Senator Fair introduced the proposal at a senate finance committee. Right now the group is working on the sate's seven million dollar budget. Senators did not vote on the idea yet, but he hopes they discuss it more when they meet again soon.

Phillippines Playboy A Philippines edition of Playboy men's magazine will hit the newsstands next month, but without the nude women that graced the pages of its Western counterparts.

Veteran journalist Beting Laygo Dolor, the editor-in-chief of the Playboy Philippine edition, said the launch of the magazine will be on April 2.

Dolor said the Playboy Philippine edition is a lifestyle magazine for successful men and women: It will be tamer than the US edition but not as tame as the Indonesian edition. It is a mature lifestyle magazine.

Dolor said the local edition will contain serious articles to be contributed by awarded Filipino writers.

Naked Censorship...

PayPal censor naturist magazine
Link Here

Going Natural magazine cover After four years of processing subscription payments for Going Natural magazine, PayPal has abruptly cancelled service to its publisher, the Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN).

Attempts to get an explanation as to how the magazine violates PayPal's "acceptable use" policy have been met with generic e-mails from faceless and implacable customer-service personnel. Those e-mails falsely claim the magazine is pornographic, and sells sexually oriented goods or services involving minors or services for which the purpose is to facilitate meetings for sexually oriented activities.

Going Natural magazine is devoted to naturism (or nudism), a social movement over a hundred years old and unrelated to sexual activity.

The FCN is not the first naturist organization to be rejected by PayPal, which arbitrarily denies service to persons or organizations it alone deems socially unacceptable.

PayPal's decision about Going Natural and its claims about the FCN are unfounded embellishments born of ignorance, notes Judy Williams, Government Affairs Director for the FCN.

Initimate and Morally Correct Magazines...

Even christian ladies just want to get laid

Intiem magazine cover Demand for an Afrikaans sex magazine that targets married, Christian women has increased so much that an English version will hit the shelves next month.

The launch edition of Intimacy follows a 300 percent growth in demand for Intiem magazine, which was launched in 2006.

We strive to empower Christian women not to feel guilty for enjoying this God-given pleasure which is sex, but rather to embrace it, said managing editor Liezel van der Merwe.

Writing on sex from a Christian perspective had been a difficult challenge, with sex and religion both highly sensitive topics and few guidelines in the Bible, said Van der Merwe.

You won't find any information on, say, masturbation, oral sex or how to spice up your sex life in the Bible. So the only thing one can do is to take the general guidelines that were given to us and apply it to the best of our knowledge and with guidance from the Holy Spirit.

The quarterly Afrikaans version, which has a 30 000 distribution run, will be translated and adapted for English-speakers to appeal to a multicultural audience.

While we believed that it was only Afrikaans women from a Calvinistic upbringing who had a need for a magazine which speaks openly and freely about sex, we soon came to realise that this was not the case. This was the obvious next step. The magazines were not Christian publications, but written from a Christian perspective, she clarified.

This meant monogamy was endorsed and marital affairs condemned. And while experiments with oral sex might be encouraged, no articles written for gay couples would ever be found.

Corrupt and Decadent...

Iranian censor bans magazines featuring Hollywood stars
Link Here

Talash magazine Iran has banned nine lifestyle and cinema magazines for publishing pictures of "corrupt" foreign film stars and details about their "decadent" private lives, the student ISNA news agency said.

The publications were banned by the press commission watchdog for publishing photographs of corrupt foreign artists and details about their decadent lives.

The most significant magazines banned are Donya-ye Tasvir (World of the Image), Sobh-e Zendegi (Morning of Life), Talash (Effort) and Haft (Seven). The commission also gave warnings to 13 other publications.

Such magazines regularly print articles and pictures of foreign film stars, as well as of Iranian actresses in the kinds of loose headscarves and tight-fitting clothes that are frowned upon by the Islamic authorities.

The latest issue of Donya-ye Tasvir carried articles about several Hollywood female stars including Naomi Watts, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, all accompanied by pictures.

In Tehran there are only a handful of cinemas which offer a selective screening of foreign movies, which are subject to heavy censorship of any scenes where actresses are scantly dressed.

Beginning this month, new stores will no longer carry many pornographic publications and over the next few weeks, more than 90 erotic magazines will disappear from existing Empik locations. Also, Empik has withdrawn an order to some retailers of erotic periodicals.

According to Empik, its clientele buys predominantly health-and-fitness or women's periodicals. The Polish book retailer has said that Playboy magazine will still be sold in its stores.

Raymond Review...

Soho porn entrepreneur, Paul Raymond, dies aged 82
Link Here  full story: Club International...Paul Raymnd Publications in the news

Men Only cover Porn king and property magnate Paul Raymond has died aged 82.

Raymond was credited with staging the first live striptease show in London and amassed an estimated fortune of £650million.

As he built his empire, he was dubbed the King of Soho and his stable of porn magazines included Razzle , Mayfair and Men Only .

He started in the business as a producer, touring a variety programme, the Vaudeville Express, around the country. Raymond got round a ruling by the Lord Chamberlain which banned movement by nudes on stage by getting the topless women not to move.

Exploiting a loophole which made private clubs exempt from official censorship, he opened the Raymond Revuebar strip club in Soho in 1958.

After an earlier failure, Raymond returned to porn publishing with Men Only in 1971 and his magazines became the first top-shelf glossies.

Tits at WH Smith...

DIVA magazine cover censored
Link Here

uncensorsed and censored covers DIVA, Europe's leading lesbian glossy monthly, has immortalised the legendary cover of Rolling Stone Magazine featuring John Lennon and Yoko Ono, but using two women.

Celebrating the sensuality of sex, DIVA reworked the image to include two ladies, not only to reflect the sexuality of the magazine, but also to reflect Leibovitz's significant contribution to magazine culture.

Just as the presses were about to roll, the publishers were told by the retailer that the magazine couldn't run with the iconic cover.

Unfortunately, we were forced to censor the cover because one major retailer objected to it. They didn't explain why, editor Jane Czyzselska said.

Which retailer is it that took on the role of “censor”. One does not need to be a rocket scientist to come up with the name WH Smith.

DIVA's art department quickly moved the wording “The Super Sexy Issue” to cover the offending breast – and the magazine can now be sold in the 543 high street stores and 259 outlets at airports, train stations and motorway service stations operated by WH Smith.

A spokesperson for WH Smith said that the projected cover was a step away from the magazine's usual covers. She went on to say that the company told the publisher that it could be sold with the proposed cover if every copy was “bagged”.

The April edition of DIVA goes on sale in the UK on March 6.

Update: Nuts up Top...

Scottish MPs support campaign to get lads mags top shelved
Link Here  full story: Lads Mags...Blaming lads mags for all the world's ills

Margaret Forbes with lads mag A nutter's campaign against lads mags has won the support of an influential group of MSPs.

MSP Gil Paterson this week lodged a motion in the Scottish Parliament congratulating the efforts of Margaret Forbes who launched a one-woman campaign demanding men's mags such as Loaded and Nuts be tucked away on top shelves.

She argues the magazines' front covers are in the same league as soft porn, and objects to them being displayed in lower shelves alongside more family-friendly lifestyle magazines in sight of children.

Now she has won support from politicians from the three main parties in the Scottish Parliament after they heard supermarket chain Morrison's has chosen to stock the magazines more discreetly.

Paterson, vice convener of a parliamentary group on violence against women and children, has also written to justice secretary Kenny McAskill over the issue.

The motion has been backed by 16 MSPs. As well as congratulating Margaret, it argued that Parliament should support her campaign to encourage other supermarket chains and vendors to follow the example set by Morrisons.

Paterson said: It's the general attitude towards porn, and the fact children are exposed to it and the normalisation of it that I'm concerned about.

Ms Forbes said: I'm very much encouraged because I feel like I've been doing it on my own. I've been feeling very isolated and a lot of times I get doors slammed in my face when I go round with my petition. But there is still more to go, because we need to get other supermarkets to do the same.

Stock Market Babes...

Adult magazine group seeks stock market listing
Link Here

Asian Babes magazine The stock market is to provide its first listing for a pornography publishing group as the adult magazines empire founded by Express owner Richard Desmond next week seeks a listing on the junior Plus Market.

Interactive Publishing, a shell group, is floating at the same time as agreeing a reverse takeover deal with Trojan Publishing, a private business that has built up a large portfolio of top-shelf titles such as Asian Babes, Forty Plus and New Talent.

Before buying rights to about 30 former Desmond titles last year, Trojan acquired about a dozen mostly adult magazines from British Virgin Islands-registered AML Publishing Trust in June 2006. A month later it signed a deal with Penthouse, licensing rights to Forum.

A stock market listing for Desmond's onetime porn titles comes two months after a bankruptcy order was made against entrepreneur Simon Robinson. Robinson, a former Express journalist, had acquired the titles, trading as Remnant Media, from Desmond in 2004 for £10.8m. Remnant slipped into administration last year only to be snapped up by Trojan, a business at which Robinson had been a director until January 2007.

Contemptible Judge...

Suspended jail sentence for reading Maxim in US court
Link Here

Maxim Magazine cover North Carolina judge, Kevin Eddinger, held lawyer Todd Paris in contempt after he saw him reading Maxim magazine with “a female topless model” on the cover, according to the court order.

When Eddinger gave Paris a chance to respond he apologized and stated in his view the magazine was not pornography, was available at local stores and that he did not intend contempt, the order said. Eddinger fined Paris $300, gave him a 15 day suspended jail sentence that remains in effect for a year and placed him on unsupervised probation, according to the order.

Eddinger wrote in the order that The contemnor's (Paris) conduct interrupted the proceedings of the court and impaired the respect due its authority. In addition, the contemnor's actions were grossly inappropriate, patently offensive, and violative of Rule 12 of the General Rules of Practice. Courtroom staff, law enforcement, members of the Bar and the general public shall be able to conduct courtroom business in an atmosphere free of the display of offensive material as demonstrated by the contemnor, thus necessitating this action.
