Thai love curtains

You know, if you're going to use sex in advertising, look to these ads from Ogilvy & Mather, Bangkok (heh heh heh... "bang cock"...) for some pointers:
  1. Make it fun
  2. Be original
  3. Don't objectify women

I love the vagueness of the one above — Man on woman? Man on man? Woman pegging man? Woman pegging woman?

That's what creative should do; inspire the imagination.

The second, however, leaves little to the imagination:

Via Ads of The World


  1. I admit I haven't heard the term "pegging" before, although I think I can guess what it means--but honestly, all either of these things makes me thing of is Pompeii.

  2. Also, if you removed what seems obviously to be a woman servicing a man in the second picture, it'd look like a Pietá.

    1. You're right! It looks like the unfinished Michelangelo in Milan's Castello Sforzesco.

      (Which is the most pretentious thing I have written all week...)
