Will This Ad Showing a Man Receiving Head From Another Man Get You To Buy Sunglasses?

THE SHOT — An advertisement for sunglasses by the brand Sir Vaughn, a New York-based producer of gaudy accessories. The title of the ad campaign: “Gay Sex Sells.” Indeed. (Blurring is in the original.) [via]

      My attention wasn’t on the sunglasses so in essence the ad fails, but I still luv it!

      Someone should send these to Fred Phelps in honor of gay pride month and ask the seller to include an uncensored copy of the ad in the box.

      This is just a sad, sad ad. It’s indicative of the sex cult nature of the gay marketing paradigm. If there’s ever been a case for re-criminalizing homosexuality, this ad should be it.

      ugh. ugh ugh. what ugly sunglasses. they’re all lady gaga’s fault, i’m sure.

      everything about this ad caters to the well off, obnoxious, gentrifying queermo. “gay sex sells”? i’m perturbed that we can be visible only because of our economic viability. bullshit bullshit bullshit.

      boo-urns.

      Bevvie Heels,

      So true. I think the gay marketing paradigm is the pinnacle of self-obsessed consumerism. We’re horribly materialistic as a community.

      @alejandro: The whole story describes it as a “print ad,” so it’s not purely for the internet. I’m personally not sure what I think about it. My initial reaction was that it’s over the line, but on thinking about it I feel like I appreciate the honesty. Many ads are pretty blatantly sexual, but more often than not it’s of the “wink-wink” variety: allegedly coincidental or humorous but really intentional and serious. So in a way it’s nice for an advertiser to say “You like sex? Here’s some sex. Now buy our glasses.” Kind of refreshing.

      The sunglasses are detestable, though.

      I guess gay sex really does sell.
      On the companies website it say “Our Payment Processing agent has crashed due to an unexpected spike in sales. Please come back tomorrow (6/9/10) to place an order. Thank You.

      Where exactly is this going to be printed? I’m not offended by a blurry picture of a blow job, but what if you were reading a magazine at work, or had one on your coffee table when there happened to be children over? I don’t flip through every page of every magazine the second I get it, is this going to be in mainstream gay publications or would this only be in porn mags?

      Neat ad, but I still wouldn’t buy the sunglasses. And I definitely wouldn’t want anyone coming near my goodies while wearing spikes on their head.

      Like the ad, it’s refreshing that male sexuality is being explored a bit more now, it’s about time.

      if you’re not convinced to buy the sunglasses, hopefully you’re at least convinced to wear protective eyewear while performing oral sex.
