In a few hours tomorrow’s front pages will be released. Scrapbook will wager a penny to a pound that, like every year following A-Level results, the attractive young girls won’t be confined to page 3. And it’s not just the red tops that are at it. As this transgression from The Guardian illustrates, the so-called quality newspapers will tantalise their middle-aged readership when it thinks teacher isn’t looking (all in the interests of quality journalism, of course).

So hats off to the Sexy A-Levels blog, which is keeping tabs on picture desks that “believe that only attractive girls in low cut tops do A-Levels”. Visitors can marvel at such photographic clichés as the “group leap” (above), the “intimate hug”, and the “staged envelope opening”, all bursting at the seams with teenage totty hardworking students!

They’d do this with GCSEs if they could get away with it.

  6. The force is limp with you.

    If you are going to truly become a high traffic, high profile mass, market blog this limp-wristed attitude for an excuse to have pictures of totty on your site is not going to work.

    (A) Embrace and celebrate the opportunity to display totty
    (B) Do not decry totty of any age (leave that to the comments).
    (C) Focus on boobs
    (D) Bikinis are good.

    “Isn’t terrible that there is teen totty all over the papers” tomorrow is PATHETIC.

    Here endeth the lesson.

    We’re not prudes. The point of the post was to take the piss out of much of the media for facing both ways. The Mail and Express in particular cast themselves as the guardians of Middle England morality while at the same time salivating over a bunch of teenagers every August. I though you loathed the hypocrisy of elites?

    If people want to look at pictures of pretty teenage girls (or boys) that’s great but just don’t dress it up as news. To your credit you don’t!

    So you want pictures of ugly people getting crap results? Get over it. That’s the way the world is!
