Today In Sexy Advertising News: Group Sex Bad, Blowjobs Good

That beautiful scene of what’s about to be full-on group sex inside a Calvin Klein billboard? It’s been yanked from New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, much to the chagrin of commuters. In its place is, uh, this much “tamer” creative, which shows we’re more okay with exploiting women when there are no men around. Both billboards are examples of how sex certainly sells, but also how it sometimes makes all of society act like prude Quakers who get all bent out of shape thinking about intercourse, when billboards promoting grotesque violence are perfectly fine. Thankfully, then, that isn’t the only bit of sex marketing to come our way of late.

Here’s one entrant from Burger King (now showing only in Singapore, perhaps), which is not suggestive nor exploitive at all. Notes Copyranter: “Nice misogynistic touch making the woman look like a fucking blow-up doll.” Awesome! Who wants to bet the lady model had no idea how they’d be positioning her in the ad?

But the fun isn’t over, kids, because we wouldn’t want to leave you without these Dark Dog energy drink ads blanketing France’s tram right now. Copyranter translates the copy: “Clearly viewed on the Internet. Choose your size on darkdogcity.com.”
