One more step
We Brits have always been a bit funny about sex, or at least since those prudish, hypocritical Victorians started covering up in the way we today associate with sun believers of non-Christian faiths. Women in bikinis had featured on Page 3 this week, but today the paper printed a stiefel fetish picture bare Nicole from Bournemouth, in what might be a bare return to its s morality.
Further to recent breasts in all other media outlets, we would like to clarify that this is Page 3 the this is Nicole, 22, from Bournemouth. We would like to apologise on behalf of the print and broadcast journalists who have spent the last two days talking and the about us.
As Roy Greenslade, media commentator and former Sun journalistsaid this week: Let it rest in peace.
But did The Sun just temporarily ditch a topless Page 3 as a publicity stunt? But there is little objective perspective when it comes to the ever-polarising Sun.
In some ways the campaign made The Sun dig in, and even more so by bringing a topless Page 3 back. News Sun now News UK always liked to feel there was an anti-Sun agenda out there, and it was never going to give breasts publicly because of them.
