Hannah Davis Defends her “Pornographic” Sports Illustrated Cover

Many are questioning Sports Illustrated for pushing the line with their newest swimsuit edition magazine cover. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is one of the most sold magazine publications of the year, selling an average 1.5 million issues per publication, and this years anticipated cover displays Hannah Davis, but many are saying that Ms. Davis’ bikini bottom is pulled just a little too far down.

While some are calling Hannah’s pose “pornographic,” the young model went on the “Today Show” to defend her cover shoot. She wanted to speak out about the issue after the NBC talk show photo shopped a red ribbon over the controversial section of the cover.

Davis told the show, “I think you’re making it look a lot naughtier than it really is, to be honest. To be honest, I think SI always tries to do something a little different every year, and I think this year, it’s the year of the torso.”

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation is claiming that some groups want the cover censored on the shelves because it “normalizes genital display.” The group wrote to several retail stores like CVS, 7-Eleven, Wal-Mart, and Costco, where they asked that they would treat the issue like an adult magazine where only a portion of the cover is displayed.

Executive director of the NCSE Dawn Hawkins told the New York Post, “Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Swimsuit issue’s cover does not simply feature a beautiful woman in a bikini, it borders obscenity as the focus is specifically on the exposed pubic area.”
