Iran Not Hot on Cleavage


Gawker reports a Swedish gentleman by the name of Jonathon Lundqvist returnd fom a trip to Iran with copies of several western magazines he purchased at a newsstand. All of the magazines are manually censored blocking out areas of the ad which are deemed to be too risque. It's not the censorship that's surprising but the manual labor involved in black inking all the "too revealing" content

This was common practice in Japan up until the 1970s. Censors actually went through copies of soft porn by hand and painted out the pubic hair with black paint.

who's business is it to pry into other people's lives?

Also, those pictures actually bring out more beauty of the models and are less gender discriminating.

Malaysian censors took to every frame of the opening credits of a James Bond film with a black marker in an attempt to obscure the breast area of the silhouetted dancers. The result? All the dancers suddenly had wildly gryating breast areas in a crude, stop-frame animation stylee. There wasn't a dry eye in the cinema.
