C4 Rapped For Orgy Poster

The Advertising Standards Agency has rapped Channel 4 over the knuckles for a poster advertising its drama Skins.
The ASA said: "We considered that the image, showing characters from the programme embracing in varying states of undress, implied that an orgy was taking place. We concluded that the poster could cause serious or widespread offence to those who saw it and was unsuitable to be used in a medium where it could be seen by children."
The regulator rejected complaints that the poster depicted underage sex. Channel 4's defense was that the characters depicted in the poster were all over eighteen.
That's good then, and not at all a case of a major corporation selling the concept of kiddie sex to the masses in order to flog its wares.
The solution? Advertising gurus + firing squad = a better society.
