    I was wondering what people's take is on the recent Jack Wills catalogue, sent out via post, being banned by the The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The pictures in the ad were described as "sexualised", "inappropriate" and "irresponsible"..here's a link to the BBC's article on it with the pictures: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/articl...ising-watchdog

    So what do you think? Are these images too sexualised and inappropriate? Or was Jack Wills justified by having an over-18 policy to receive post from them?
    I'm curious.....

    I strongly agree it is suggestive

    It's people sitting around in underwear, I don't understand the problem

    I guess it is kind of implying some sexytimes but who actually cares?

    The more important question is: why the hell does it matter?

    I don't understand these puritans. What are they aiming to achieve? Are they really that terrified of their kids discovering they have genitals? Bizarre. These are probably the same people that supported David Cameron's mandatory opt-out porn filter.

    If it bothers them that much, why aren't they keeping an eye on their own kids instead of making the rest of us do their parenting for them?
