uk NEWS: 'Lad mag' ban?

AN MP is to launch a bid to regulate the display of what she terms "sexually explicit material" which is available to children in shops and newsagents across the UK.

Labour's Claire Curtis-Thomas (Crosby) claimed some men's magazines - often termed 'lads' mags' -are "degrading to women".

She said yesterday that descriptions of sexual acts in the 'Dictionary of Porn' in an April edition of Zoo magazine are "so graphic and repulsive I am prevented from quoting it on the floor of the House of Commons."

She said that while such magazines were aimed at men in their twenties, "the reality is that a significant proportion of their readership are teenagers and children."
