This is a rush transcript from "Your World with Neil Cavuto," February 20, 2008. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: All right, growing outrage today over these pictures. That is Lindsay Lohan, folks posing naked in the newest issue of — Are you ready for this? — New York Magazine, not Playboy, not Penthouse, but New York magazine.

Add that to past covers of a naked Britney on Harper's Bazaar and naked Dixie Chicks on Entertainment Weekly.

Well, my next guest says mainstream magazines are going soft-core porn, and it ain't right. Lyss Stern is founder of Divalysscious Moms.

• Video: Watch the interview

So, Lyss, you don't like this.

LYSS STERN, FOUNDER, DIVALYSSCIOUS MOMS: No, I don't, actually, a little outraged, a lot outraged about what's going with media and magazines as far as young children today are being exposed to this nudity. It used to be that it was just on Playboy magazine. And...

CAVUTO: You know, I really thought that the Lindsay Lohan stuff — because I saw it first in the papers — that this was coming from Playboy.

STERN: So did I. And it's not. It's...

CAVUTO: So, the fact when it gets more mainstream, magazines readily — some of these are in grocery store lists as you check out at the cashier.

STERN: Every newsstand.

CAVUTO: That's a whole 'nother piece of work, right?

STERN: It is. And not only that, but I am a subscriber to New York Magazine, have been for a very long time.

And, yesterday, when I went to go get my mail with my 4-year-old son, right outside — right on the cover of New York magazine was Lindsay Lohan posing this way.

CAVUTO: What are you going to do?

STERN: I actually turned it around.

CAVUTO: Are you going to cancel your subscription?

STERN: I'm not going to cancel my subscription, but I am going to let them know. I will write in and say that I was upset about this.

CAVUTO: Do you know what I think? While they hear your concerns, they are more interested in their long-term survival.

And I hear from one magazine publisher after another, put the scantily clad or nonclad woman on the cover, it will beat the politician; it will beat the businessman; it will beat almost anything else.

STERN: That's what — that's what they are...

CAVUTO: So, this is about sales?

STERN: It is. But, unfortunately, today, it's all about sales, a lot of it, especially with these magazines and who they are putting on the cover of it.

Recently, I just read that, if they put a woman on the cover and they put a man on the cover, of course, the woman's celebrity magazine is going to sell more than the man's celebrity magazine, because all...

CAVUTO: What if it's a hideous woman and a really hot guy?

STERN: That's interesting.

CAVUTO: Really?

STERN: Yes.

CAVUTO: The hideous woman wins out over the hot guy?

STERN: I don't know. I think it's about the hot woman and...

CAVUTO: Count me worried. Count me worried.

(LAUGHTER)

CAVUTO: All right.

So, now, all of a sudden, we have this conundrum, right? The magazines are saying, look, everyone says we're dinosaurs.

STERN: Right.

CAVUTO: And we're dying fast.

STERN: Right.

CAVUTO: And this is a way we can survive.

And if Lyss' kids, when they grow up, they see past the near-naked woman on the front and they read the darn thing, it is better than them not reading at all.

STERN: Right.

CAVUTO: What do you say?

STERN: I disagree with that. I don't think there is a need to have naked women on the cover of magazines right now.

CAVUTO: Oh, I thought you were going to say you didn't think there was a need for naked women.

(LAUGHTER)

STERN: Now, that's a whole other story.

CAVUTO: Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead.

STERN: No, but I think that there is a place for it and I think there is a time for it. And I think there are certain publications that should have that, and that's the way it should be. And I don't think that New York magazine and I don't think that other magazines should have naked women on the cover.

I just don't think...

CAVUTO: But New York itself is — for those of you not familiar with the Manhattan area — it's kind of like an edgy, a very liberal magazine anyway. So, it kind of pushes the envelope.

So, the Entertainment Weekly one, I can raise with you, because that is a little weird, because that is a national type magazine.

But you're just against the trend.

STERN: I am.

I just think that it's inappropriate right now. I know that it is a trend. And I know that women, naked women on the covers of magazines will sell the magazine.

However, there are little children out there that are getting these magazines — that are seeing these magazines in people's homes, that these are magazines that come to people's homes for these parents to read...

CAVUTO: Right.

STERN: ... and that it's — there is a time and a place.

And Playboy magazine, if a father or mother subscribes to Playboy magazine, there is a reason that Playboy is usually kept away, under the bed or in the bathroom.

CAVUTO: You raise some valid points.

Lyss Stern, thank you very much. I appreciate it.

STERN: Thank you for having me.
