I think it's been masterminded by Infant. He did warn us.

The Co-operative has given so-called lads' mags six weeks to cover up their front pages with sealed "modesty bags" or be taken off sale in its stores.

The 4,000-outlet retailer said it was responding to concerns by its members, customers and colleagues about images of scantily-clad women on covers.

Titles such as Front, Loaded, Nuts and Zoo have been given a deadline of 9 September to act by the Co-op.

One campaign group called for Co-op to stop selling such titles altogether.

The Co-op, which is owned and run by its more than seven million members, introduced opaque screens for lads' magazines on some shelves earlier this month.

Steve Murrells, retail chief executive for the Co-operative Group, said: "As a community-based retailer, we have listened to the concerns of our customers and members, many of whom say they object to their children being able to see overt sexual images in our stores.

"Whilst we have tried to mitigate the likelihood of young children seeing the images with a number of measures in store, the most effective way of doing this is for these magazines to be put in individual, sealed modesty bags."

'Like wallpaper'

Cathryn Higgs, a policy manager at the Co-op, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme the group was currently "in dialogue" with the magazine publishers.

"I've got every hope they will take what we believe is the responsible approach and put them in a bag," she said.

The Daily Sport newspaper has already agreed to comply with the Co-operative's new policy.

Women and Equalities Minister Jo Swinson said the Co-op's move was "very welcome".

"Many parents aren't comfortable with the way sexualised imagery has become like wallpaper - everywhere from the bus stop to the corner shop," she said.

"Adults should be left to make their own decisions about what legal sexual images they look at, but the place for these is not next to the sweets at children's eye-level. I hope other retailers will follow the Co-operative's lead."

But campaign group Lose the Lads' Mags said the Co-op was not going far enough.

Spokeswoman Sophie Bennett said: "The so-called 'modesty bags' they are demanding from publishers are designed to allow the Co-operative to continue profiting from sexist, harmful lads' mags - but just a bit more discreetly."

Gender equality groups UK Feminista and Object joined forces with lawyers to launch the Lose the Lads' Mags campaign earlier this year.

They warned that retailers could face legal action if they continued to display the magazines or require staff to handle them.

This, they said, could amount to sexual harassment or discrimination in breach of the Equality Act 2010.

The British Retail Consortium has said its members do not sell anything illegal and have long followed industry rules.

Perhaps that's been part of the problem, Greeny?

Now girls think they can get famous and be "successful" just by taking a few cleavage/underwear/topless "selfies" and splashing them around the internet. Part of a general dumbing down of culture, general lack of ambition to be anything other than noticed by being attractive (in an orange skin, heavily made-up, fake eyelashes/nails/boobs way that I personally find very unattractive) and to be a WAG for someone vaguely famous. Or a shit footballer.

I genuinely don't know what the male equivalent does, though, but it must be there?

It's nice though when you're pretending to read Kerrang in the newsagents while secretly glancing at Rosie Jones on the top shelf.

I'd be more embarrassed about reading kerrang.

I'd be quite interested to know where this sudden crusade against boobs has come from in the Tory party.

The Brighton MP is a fierce promoter of all this, but she let's her city turn to shit instead of paying the bin men, so she's clearly a moron.

The backlash was inevitable. If you think that Loaded first appeared around 20 years ago and drove the rise of monthly mens mags... When Nuts and Zoo launched they were quite tame but found out that the issues which sold well were boob focussed and so became the magazines we know today. at the same time porn has become more available and, for a while, more extreme in the mid-noughties.

BBC ran a good article recently criticizing the claims of how much porn is on the internet, but the point is popular perceptions are that sexualised imagery is readily available and this has resulted in a number of crusades, often merging or getting lumped together. I'm sure some of the campaigns are well intentioned to protect children, but a number are moral crusades, then you have the feminist campaigns, moreover the hysterical commentaries who have created the moral panic that Cameron cunt capitalised on recently.

So what we're seeing is the inevitable backlash because the boobs/porn ascendancy has been going on for so long. The question is how far the clampdown goes
