A suggestive fragrance advertisement in Seventeen magazine's October issue stunned one Bearden Middle School parent, alarmed Knox County Schools officials and prompted the publication itself to have second thoughts.

You can read the complete article on the KnoxNews site.

For the record, this perfume was being marketed through Target and Marshall's stores, as well, under the slogan "scent to bed" and aimed at teens. Due to massive amounts of email from parents and concerned adults, they have decided to pull the ad campaign from stores till they have revised the slogan and intended audience. So, the company itself has decided to listen to concerned parents and adults and is behaving in a mature and appropriate manner (unusual for big business).

I wonder why Seventeen is in school libraries anyway. Not exactly educational material.

Library materials aren't just for "educational" purposes. There is a great deal of value in recreational reading. Studies show that reading fluency increases when students read for pleasure.
