The Children and Youth Council of Thailand has called on the media industry to stop publishing seductive photos of scantily-clad movie stars and teen idols, saying it sets a bad precedent. At its first ever meeting held last Friday, council president Ek Wong-anan told the industry to correct their perception that the majority of youths wanted to see such photos on the front pages of magazines and newspapers. Ek cited the council's survey of 594 children and youths across the country in which 83.7 percent said publishing sexy and revealing photos was improper. "We would like the media and the teen idols to take it as their duty to create role models and instil moral values in children," he said.
