Major Retailers to place Lads Mags 'on Top Shelf'
Major Retailers including Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda, Morrisons, Co-op and BP Petrol Stations have announced that they will sell lads mags on the top shelf or cover them up.
"Finally supermarkets are following the guidelines issued to them over 5 years ago, which were put in place only because of our campaigning at that time.
We are particularly thrilled that BP has taken this step, since petrol stations provide one of the most porn-filled of environments in our daily lives" Dr Sasha Rakoff, CEO OBJECT.
WHSmith however, has refused to follow suit, claiming that selling lads mags at 1.2m (the average height of a 7 year old) is adequate.
"We will be continuing to lobby WHSmith to step in line and we will also be asking why newspapers such as the Sport are still not being sold according to NFRN guidelines - particularly by the ethical Co-op".
