hii there,
Me and my friends have been thinking about a variety of things to do with boys magazines such as nuts and page 3 girls in the newspaper. We think it is hugely unfair that boys get to see a wider variety of half naked women than what us girls do. This is not simply beause we are jelous but we think we deserve the same sort of fun (should i say) as what the men out there do !!!! I dont see anything wrong with page 3 girls at all, but i think its is unfair for us girls to have to see that our bf our husbands get to see that and we dont!I also think porn gives of a message that they males are alot more dominant and that we are easy pushovers and that we do anything they say...
I dont watch porn myslef, but i hear boys talking about it as if us girls are animals that like to do anything really ....does anyone agreee???

The papers are following what the market dictates. Apparently images of half-naked lads doesn't sell as many copies as half-naked women do.

If more people bought page 3 for lads, then the papers would start showing more lads. Simple as that.
