[NSFW] The online magazine asked its (mainly young, female) readers to submit anonymous pictures of their breasts so that they could be viewed and rated by others.
In return NZGirl would donate a sum of money to breast cancer research. The whole campaign has generated a lot of controversy as New Zealand's online community have pointed out that asking young women to post their pictures is unsafe
and a gratuitous use of others' suffering
. The magazine's editor defended the campaign, saying that it prompted awareness
and encouraged many women to have their breasts checked. With allegations that the pictures have ended up on at least one porn site
(NSFW obviously) and with pictures found elsewhere on the net
the whole episode has generated huge publicity for NZGirl magazine.
