I must say that I missed the original introduction of this discussion as well, probably as I was not on this site at the time. But, go away for a week's worth of computer problems and old threads rise up from the graves. Very impressive.

But back to the original question. And I took the poll and was in the minority. Frankly, I think there is nothing more appropriate to the marketing of fragrances (odors, smells, by whatever name you chose) than pure unadulterated sex, because of the intimate and powerful association between sexual drive/arousal and said phernomes (sp?).

However, hairy men are a turnoff to me so what does that say about my sexuality? I shudder to think of it, and thus, will not do so.

Yes, to each his own. I had a room-mate who was so hairy that when he was born his mother thought he was a pair of ear-muffs.

This room-mate was so hairy that he woke one morning to find crop circles on his back.

And it must have been a sign that the aliens were about to take their revenge for some vague but very real infringement.

Well, that's the thing with crop circles, we're still not sure what they mean. Are they an attempt to communicate, but in some symbolic syntax with which we are unfamiliar? Are they absent mindedly using us as a doodle pad while they plot dominance over us, or even our extinction? Are they doing advance promo for a really big spirograph?

new to this forum, but I could not help but want to see the thread...., sex, violence, and advertising and how they all relate I believe will trigger a wide range of of responses from the different corners of the populus. What is truly interesting to me, in this case of using "full frontal nude" for an ad...any ad... is the reaction it gets. I think it indicates a collective discomfort with the human form, with sex, our beliefs and attitudes towards it, anything vulnerable ...especially that relates to the guilt/shame of sexuality...and that it stems back to the Puritanical value structures that founded our democracy. So it makes sense to want to use the nude form artistically or commercially because it addresses something deep the society isn't actually complacent about.
To bad there isn't a stir from images of damage to the environment; hungry or sick people; I believe that's what the general population ought to be riled about. It seems so backwards to get upset over a naked guy

Good day, colorific....and welcome!

I confess I share your consternation at the balance of what offends many in visual imagery. There is a very long period of time in European art where the human form was not seen undraped (except for Jesus, of course). Curiously, all characters who inhabit these paintings display a certain pasty coloring and lack of inner life animation uncannily similar to modern photographs of John Ashcroft.

The only thing in the way of happiness is these damn clothes.

@Lordyaswas,
Oh, my Lord! This crusade is going to get to the very top of the Google 'nudist' searches. I'd almost rather have the decryptogram crowd.

@roger,
You mean there might be hordes of nudists heading our way?

DISGUSTING!


I shall now seek out my binoculars.


For purely ornithological reasons, of course.

@Phoenix32890,
Being nude doesn't make it x-rated (especially in France.) Smile

Rather than trying to make this a thing (and not just increase eyes on an ad...) if you wanna see naked guys, ya that's difficult. If only there was a way to find naked pictures somehow...Smile
