Model Lara Stone being "raped" on Calvin Klein billboard.


(click image, via) At least, according to Australia's Advertising Standards Bureau. They've ordered the board pulled, finding it to be suggestive of rape and violence—though they acknowledged that the act depicted "could be consensual." The Bureau added: ...the image was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men."
But lately, Australian beverage ads have been yelling at Aussie men to MAN UP! Such conflicting signals. CK fashion model Stone, by the way, often models sans fashions (nsfw). Previous well-orchestrated "controversial" CK billboards:
the 5-story 3-on-1 sofa orgy billboard.
the biggest shiniest nakedest black man ever (nsfw).

So yeh, whether it's rape or consensual is open to interpretation but what has the 'btw' she's posed naked before got to do with anything?

Yeah, that's pretty rapey looking, especially with her facial expression and the dude pulling her hair.

I really don't get the point of the ad. Wear our clothes and get raped? Wear our clothes and be rapists?

If he is pulling her hair, it's simply to get her out of the other guy's way.

The ad layout (no pun intended) is just one big mess.

It looks like a highly stylized, limp homage to the original harsh and uncompromising 'Last Exit to Brooklyn' by CK &Co.

Here, Tralala, a young Brooklyn model, is clumsily gang-stroked after a night of heavy drugging and partying.
