The most obscene use of scrunchies ever in an ad.

(click ad) Russian ad site adme.ru today posted 100 sexist advertisements of recent years. I'd seen pretty much all of them, and had even posted many of them previously. However, this doozy from 2007 for a hymen tightening gel was new to me. Ad agency: The Classic Partnertship in Dubai, UAE. Previously in hymen tightening gel ads: "Ever wonder why there's a gap in your relationship?"

I feel like I've gotta give props to this one. If there's such a thing as graphic subtlety, this is it. Made me cringe a bit and snicker at the same time.

Forget the ad, when was the definition of hymen changed?

That post is pretty much a copy of this one:

Uhhh...it's not hymens they're claiming to tighten, I think, more like vaginas (or 'vaginae', both are accepted).

At least the latter would do somebody (and possibly, two such) some good, a dubious proposition though it may be.

Note: Kegels---male and female---are free, except for your time, on which I'd say they'd be well-spent if you would be well-spent.
