To the editors:

It seems that every week there are more and more bared tits being shoved in my face in Section Three of the Reader. Is there a new and blossoming market in "Porn clubs" which you feel the need to promote?

I was pleased when the Reader stopped using photos and illusatrtions and started using only text in the "sex-for-sale" section in the classifieds. Why then is this same insulting and degrading imagery, having been expunged from Section Four, now infecting Section Three? I am sure the Reader can fare well enough without these advertisers. I hope therefore that your advertising executives be made aware of the low state to which they have fallen. Leave such tasteless and vile advertising to other publications, of which there are many, which cater specifically to such tastes.
