Mathematics textbook includes a porn star on its cover and finds itself banned!

Mana Aoki on the cover of a mathematics text book

Back in High School I always found maths rather boring. Probably because a majority of my teachers were fat and overweight and held onto a lot of bitterness in the fact that they had resorted to teaching in public high schools where the teenagers would have preferred to be smoking joints on the the footy oval rather than being educated. I think we can agree that a teacher’s greatest struggle would be providing ways to make their students interested in maths. One might think placing a popular Japanese porn star on the cover of mathematics text book might be a step in the right direction, right?

Math textbook includes porn star on cover gets banned

Well that’s what a Thai textbook publisher did, and now facing quite a bit of controversy for it. Apparently, for their “Basic Mathematics Textbook” MuangThaiBook had grabbed a supposedly innocent image of a teacher from the internet and that there is their mistake. Turns out the image was from a promotional shot for a film called Costume Play Working Girl starring Mana Aoki. To be fair to the publisher there is absolutely nothing wrong with the image with the exception of violating a few international Copyright laws, and the fact that quite a few people would have seen teacher in question in a variety of sexual positions and a lack of clothing.

Still the porn edition of the textbook has been recalled and its cover replaced with a more unknown model, but not before 3,000 copies had been distributed. Talk about awkward.

In the Internet age that we live in, I guess a bit of advice would be if you’re going to get in porn, just be careful what kind you make because you never know what text book cover you could end up on.
