    The Sun has just launched its P3 Search for a Star.  I'm interested in your thoughts on the P3 and the comp in general, but mainly as to whether you would ever enter such a comp?

     I think my bosom's near-requited love-affair with my knees would probably fail to pass muster for a competition like this.  Aside from that, I have always felt particularly averse to the blank, vacant stare I've seen so often on a page 3 woman's face.

    I'm happy for those who want to be a part of that to go for it, but for me, I'd rather do other things.  :)

    With regards (or less) to the Sun, I am still boycotting it after Hillsborough

    Page 3 though - it's not like anyone like me or the majority of women on here would even be considered. What they will be looking for will most likely be some fantasy babe with young tits pointing to the heavens and not my uneven , stretch-marked 42Es which are now subject to Newtonian physics and nestle above my interestng collection of surgery scars!

    Having said that, if some young lass has the moxy and the confidence to go for it and make the best of it for herself with the proper guidance, more power to her.

    I've never understood how tits can make the news on such a regular basis! I wonder if newspapers in other countires have got naked girls on them....none that I've come across have!

    Anyway...as for the competition... for girls that want to enter the industry, I think it's a perfect opportunity, such as X Factor for aspiring singers. I would not be too pleased if Mrs Strapon wanted to enter, but fair play to the girls that do, it's their decision at the end of the day.

    By all means, I'd enter, but I don't think I'd get too far...

    Page 3 girls all look the same anyway, not bad to look at, obviously, but a bit dull and vacant looking.

    Ah Strapon methinks you have never in your time had a mundane hum drum job or even existence come to that. Well believe me millions out there have, and admiring a fair pair of thruppenies glancing up at you from between the gherkin and the chips can truly buck up even the gloomiest day. I was once fortunate enough, in the height of summer, to meet a youthful Suzanna Mizzi and her photographer in Clerkenwell Road near the Italian Church.

    Spotting me approaching in all my regalia they prevailed upon me to take a nibble of her.... whoa easy there tiger/tigresses, ..her ice lolly!!! All l remember her saying was - Gosh your tall, l believe they were the most words she ever strung together!!! Sorry Suz if you are reading, but l forgot to smile and l don't think the pic ever saw the light of day.

    If I was attractive enough, I'd go for it. Lol. I don't tend to look at Page 3, but all for boobs.

     Oh, I remember this one time, when I was the only woman working with a bunch of men at this tree nursery.  This vile guy, early twenties, never had a girlfriend, was looking at a page three woman and said with a not-quite-successful attempt at boredom:

    "I've seen bigger."

    I knew right and well he'd never seen an unclothed bosom in person in his life, not unless he'd paid for it anyhow.  So I said with a smile:

    "I can beat that, I've got bigger."

    That got a good laugh from every guy in the room except him, I can tell you.  He wasn't best pleased, but I enjoyed the moment.  :)

    As for the competition, sadly for me it is 20yrs of gravity and 2 kids too late.

    If I had the confidence I had now and the body I had then sure I would have entered it.

    From my mumsy point of view would I want my daughter to do it if she were old enough? well honestly I wouldn't object but would try to persuade her that she might be narrowing her career choice/ study options at an age where all the world is availble to her. But if she entered and the pictures were nice I would have no problems.

    From a female point of view :As for the general page 3 idea. I reckon most women are secure enough not to worry too much at a bloke staring at a pair of boobs over breakfast. Frankly I don't mind looking myself if they are natural and the girl isn't over skinny. A naked or semi naked body is a natural thing. It doesn't show a " sexual act" , I don't think the girls are exploited and could do a lot worse for a living.

    We don't get papers during the week and get a broad sheet on Saturday , not many page 3's there ! although we did get some great semi-erotic prints in an offer once!

    I know women and men who for example watch porn and yet object at least in public to page 3.

    Love the comment above from Lubyanka,

    It's a difficult one. I think it'd be a fairly easy way to earn money, and certainly more money than I earn now - but a. I don't have a good enough body and b. I'm not sure I'd like the idea of randoms seeing my boobs - especially since that could include your ex-boss, ex-teachers, boyfriend's parents, etc, etc...

    Personally I have nothing against Page 3, or any similar glamour type soft-porn (eg. Nuts, Zoo). My only complaint would be that the girls featured are often so vacuous and boring - Pretty, with great figuresof course. But still rather... plain, if you get my meaning? Basically, if you've seen one Page 3 model, you've seen them all... And yes, the News in Briefs part is excruciating!!

    I wouldn't enter something like that on the basis that others have said - I know I'd be pretty mortified if my gran saw me half naked looking like I've been given a frontal lobotomy in her daily paper! However, if I had the figure and the confidence I've considered modelling for an alternative outlet - Something like Bizarre or Suicide Girls (cliched I know!)... Or doing burlesque, that quite appeals to me... It's sexy, without being braindead

    Enter anyway and sue for sex discrimination when they exclude you
