ASA - the Authority on Sexist Advertising?
ASA or ASS?
The ASA Council has refused to even investigate the appropriateness of ads for sex chat and prostitution in newspapers like the Evening Standard because 'the newspaper is not targetted at children or likely to appeal to them'.
BUT 40% of 8-11 year olds read newspapers (48% of older kids)!
Tell the ASA they are wrong here
We are appealing this decision on the grounds of a 'substantial flaw in the process'. See our appeal and original complaint here

Sex Ads off Sport Cover
The ASA recently ruled that The Sport cannot carry porn and sex ads on its covers - as then (and apparently only then) 'children might see them'. Inadequate as this ruling is, The Sport does now appear to have removed such advertising from its cover.
Hospitals Kick out The Sport
Yet another supporter contacted us shocked that his local hospital shop stocked The Sport. He wrote to them and they removed it from all shops in their Trust (Imperial College which oversees 3 hospitals) within days, no questions asked.
If you see The Sport in a hospital shop, just drop the hospital a quick email and ask them to remove it from all shops in their Trust.
'Amigo' shops seem to be the main culprit .. no friend of ours!
Strip Joint Near You?
We are thrilled to be working with Zero Option to challenge Councils' granting licenses to strip joints often without any consideration of the impact.
