The question of 'why isn't there more male nudity on TV?' also seems to get asked every so often, mostly from an entertainment perspective but what if that could actually achieve far more? Could it help a lot of anxious and unhappy men realise that they are actually perfectly normal?

Robert Sharp

At first blush, the success of the No More Page 3 campaign does not look like a victory for free speech. After all, a thing that was being published, is no longer being published.
