Parenting magazine shock advertises with "teen" sexting image (partial nudity)

Don't panic — it's an ad. The models are obviously adults. But is using a titillating image a good idea, even if it's saying "we're against that sort of thing"? It's as if the all-male creative team at Jung von Matt were a little too into this one. As a result, in my opinion, they just end up contributing to the problem of adults fetishizing teen sexuality.

The other two ads in the campaign are also shocking, but for different reasons:

These ads are not designed to sell parenting magazines. They are designed to get attention for the creatives and their agency. Mission... accomplished. You creeps.
