Interesting Place - Norway


A Norwegian city, Trondheim, has banned adverts that show semi-naked models, male or female, in public spaces.

(The new policy says: “No advertising that conveys a false image of the model/models’ appearance and contributes to a negative body image will be permitted. As a minimum, advertisements in which body shapes have been retouched should be marked as such.”

This is seemingly an attempt to reduce the impact such adverts could have on people with body image issues.

It reminds me of the "Beach Ready" controversy on London Underground.)
