UK Bans Skinny Dipping Ad - But NOT for the Reasons You Think

Here's some interesting news.  The UK advertising standards board struck down an advertisement for a hostel featuring skinny dippers because the ad depicted the college aged swimmers jumping from cliffs into water of unknown depth.  In other words, it showed DANGEROUS activity.  Not objectionable nudity.

See the story yourself Naked ad banned for depicting dangerous activity .

Is it just an excuse?  Knowing that many persons have become disabled through such jumps, we think it's a valid point.  But for what it's worth, we like the ad!
