Rocker SIR Bob Geldof has blasted 'sexually explicit' magazines aimed at young girls - vowing to protect his daughters against them.

The Live Aid organiser - who has three teenage daughters - says he has banned his girls from reading the mags.

The 48-year-old says, "Are they any less offensive than a 22-year-old man going to an 11 or 12-year-old girl and saying, 'I am going to talk to you about sex and how girls can give blow jobs to men?'

"If such a conversation happened, you would view it as odd, probably illegal and certainly predatory.

"There is something predatory because they are made by adult men and women."
