The Sunday Papers is ....

Various supposedly "family" Sunday papers have a reputation for offering titillating content to their readers. An example: on the cover of the review section of one of the papers yesterday, there was a topless woman - supposedly tied in with an article about women's liberation, which included a pretty graphic account of a sexual encounter. Inside, there was a story (with photo) of a man who had accompanied the naked ramblers (now with added female) for a mile of their journey.

In the magazine, there was a long, well-illustrated article about the Pirelli calender from its inception to the present day.

So what was the newspaper? The Sunday Sport? The News of the World? Nope. The Sunday Times.
