Stars pumps readership by getting you naked

It's come to this. The Toronto Star has started a new feature that will invite couples to discuss their relationships and at the same time pose for tasteful pictures of them "semi-nude". Here's the pitch: "By stripping away everything—including clothes—and having couples who are in long-term relationships answer a few questions and pose for a tasteful but revealing semi-nude photo. Of course, we’d provide a fig leaf (or leaves, or something else) to cover up any parts that you might not wish to share with the world. (And, let’s be realistic, not everyone in the world might wish to share.) We’ll shoot the picture inside studios at the Star with a professional photographer, and we’ll give you a really nice, large-format print for you to keep.
