Advertising Gone Wild: Group Sex Implied

Has Advertising Finally Gone Too Far With Implied Images Of Group Sex?



Every now and then you see an ad on television or a billboard along side the road that makes you stop, scratch your head, and wonder if society can reach lower lows or if this one is it.

The picture above is not in an issue of Maxim or Penthouse, and it is not an ad for an adult movie.

No, it is on the corner of Houston and Lafayette Streets in Soho in Manhattan, which for those not familiar is an extremely well traveled area both in cars and on foot. It depicts a young girl without her shirt on with two guys on a couch kissing. This while a fourth guy is on the floor without a shirt and pants undone.

The overt suggestion is that she is involved in a threesome, with the clear potential of a foursome. If we have not reached an absolute low for mainstream advertising, we are hopefully extremely close to it.

As if our kids and young adults minds are not being inundated enough by incredibly sexual music lyrics and videos with a message that is not always consistent with personal respect and pride, we now have an ad like this that cannot be controlled or shut off by turning a channel or unplugging a computer.

These images are there for anyone and everyone of all ages to see. Is society declining into a new phase that we will call Sodom and Gomorrah II. Ads like this can only make you wonder.

  1. It's far fetched, but maybe just maybe this is the work of the Obamites. Where is Jousha?
