MP Claire Curtis-Thomas in England wants lad mags like Maxim and Nuts to carry film-style ratings. In a report released this week, Curtis-Thomas said that these lad mags are not rated and treated the same way as porn even though she sees the magazines as being "little more than pornography." She also wants downmarket English newspapers like the Daily Sport to carry age-appropriateness ratings. Ben Todd, an editor at lad mag Zoo thinks of his magazines as a "cheeky seaside postcard" and says that if they are restricted by age because of topless photos then newspapers like the Sun that print photos of topless models should be restricted as well.
