copyranter on ANIMAL NY: Voodoo Doughnuts.

(NSFW!) The story of a Portland doughnut shop and their ad featuring female pubic hair, an ad which Bitch magazine rejected as sexist. (link)

It seems that we still have a long way to go in eliminating, associating a woman's 'nether region' with 'aquatic life forms and smells'.

'Cock and balls' YES, but I didn't see any 'beavertails' in their menu.

As a (former) portfolio school student, all my teachers pummeled this idea into our heads that the goal of advertising is to make people "think better about the product than they did before they saw the ad". Based on that criteria, I can safely say I do NOT feel better about Voodoo Doughnuts. However, for some reason I really have the urge to snack on some pussy right now. So way to go Bitch magazine, all you did was prevent your readers from getting head (as opposed to preventing them from eating doughnuts).

This is just silly. Voodoo Doughnut is this tiny little hole in the wall place that's sort of grungy and hires super alternative people. They are usually less than friendly also. In a way they can get away with because they have the most amazing most unique doughnuts ever and happen to be open all night. They're pretty much the exact opposite of anything misogynistic.

They do offer a lot of penis themed treats though, including voodoo doll shaped doughnuts with pretzel stick penises.
