I think you are reading too much into this.
Car mags have women in a bikini, have for many years and will for years to come. That's never going to change. Sex sells.
If you have a problem with the message it sends women then do u have a problem with men's health mags? Does my son have to grow up seeing those magazines thinking a man must have a ridiculously chiselled body? That's the message of those covers.
Just to add - not all car mags have women in a bikini on the cover, street machine being the most obvious. Rare to see a woman on the front. They don't need it. Hot4s on the other hand.. That magazine is crap so yep probably the only way to sell it.

I would of been very tempted to turn the magazines backwards. Hate the objectification of women (and men!) that happens in magazines. None of it is healthy at all
I would of loved to say something to the store manager but I have a feeling my anxiety would of prevented me.
and IMO this image is completely different to people enjoying time at the beach, I have never seen a person posing in such a sexual manner at the beach and if I did I would probably give them the evil eye and avert my children's attention.
Lubricant etc, and dildos are also sold eye height too now at shopping centres at Coles etc
