    Page three is going to stop showing topless models

    http://www.theguardian.com/media/201...pless-pictures

    As someone who can't for the life of them get a girlfriend this is the only way I can possibly see them.

    But I hear there is this thing called Google images. Apparently there is a huge supply of boobs on there.

    I will report my findings.


    Edit: Disclaimer, I feel the need to point out that I have never bought a copy of the Sun. I'm not actually personally upset there is no more page 3.

    I really never understood why page 3 was a thing after about the year 1998.

    If I want to see a pair of tits I can go to this magical place called the internet, where a) I don't have to pay for it and b) I don't have to suffer the total embarresment of having to buy a copy of the Sun.

    Could a female on here please put him out of his misery and show him your breasts lol. Seriously your negative beliefs about not being able to get a gf are silly.

    I'd never get to date a woman as pretty or intelligent as a page three girl, and this hurts my self esteem as a man ;-(

    Watch the Sun's readership basically collapse overnight because of this.

    What's the point? Was there really a load of people who want to read the Sun and not see breasts?

    I love how people call it sexist but will continue to show topless male models in all sorts of magazines anyway.

    Well, as a woman I'm quite happy about this. Hopefully men will stop objectifying us so much in future.

    Completely and utterly. The Sun's Page 3 boobies is the cause of it all.

    It has nothing to do with all the magazines in the newsagents:

    men's section:
    cars
    computers
    computer games
    trainspotting
    model railways

    women's section:
    better make up
    lose weight
    look prettier
    be more attractive
    fashion

    :rolleyes:

    Yeah, and who do you think is behind the fact that magazines are targeted that way?

    Same here! Been signing so many petitions about this for what feels like forever!

    Source?

    I've found marketing departments to be quite female orientated.

    Page 3 was just weird. It was always so uncomfortable when men were looking at it in public or the Sun was left open on the tube seat. That being said it was hardly the worst thing about the Sun, vile publication...

    Have you worked in marketing? A very laddish culture prevails throughout the sector. It resulted in my boyfriend leaving for a job as different as you could possibly get...

    Oh you poor thing. Not allowed to buy your own magazines? You have a man choose them for you?

    Anyway, Cosmopolitan is probably favourite for this. Which if the following is the abusive man?

    Funnily enough I used to work for 5 years for one of the biggest advertising and marketing companies in the UK and US. So yes, I have, and all of the marketing department senior management were female without any 'laddish' culture.
