Are Manhunt’s Ads So Ambiguous That Straight Women Think They Should Sign On? Yes, Actually

How do we know New York City’s Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen neighborhoods are being taken over by the breeders? Because straight women, after seeing‘s telephone booth ads up and down 8th Avenue and elsewhere, have been signing on to the website in hopes of finding a date. And when they find out the site is only for guys interested in “j/o oral 69 – 4 NOW” and “PNP, SAFE ONLY strict top,” they are emailing costumer service to complain.

We hear that Manhunt’s parent company Online Buddies has been fielding emails from New York’s straight lady set, upset they didn’t just stumble upon the next JDate. And while some Manhunt ads are overtly gay (like the one here, on LA’s Sunset Boulevard), we can see why some of them are a touch confusing: Cute guys spread eagle begging for your attention? Who cares if the billboard is right in front of a sex shop selling fisting lube by the case?

Which brings us back to our point from earlier today: If straight websites have to allow gays, is Manhunt going to have to allow hetero gals to get in on the “no fats, femmes, or freaks” wagon?
