You've Cum A Long Way, Baby.

(click images)
A couple of weeks ago, New York Times Op-Ed columnist Bob Herbert got his manties in a bunch bemoaning the "saturation of misogyny" in America today. In the piece (sorry, fee req'd) he blamed everything from porn to DuPont (inventor of Spandex®) to the Oscars® to, of course, advertising (he, for some reason, left out journalists) for the dehumanization of women. Well, I took a look through my long, thick archives and, frankly, I have no idea what Herbert's talking about.
(the true.com woman above right is apparently dating Peter North.)

Herbert's missing the boat, imo.

Perhaps women are attracted to cum-drenched ads because the idea of virtually ANYONE who's remotely attractive, polite and intelligent shooting a load on their face is appealing. Why?

Because people nowadays, not just women, are simply too damn busy in a too competitive world, so many are alone who don't want to be. Fast track me to a Dirty Sanchez? Where do I sign up?

Also, the rise of facials (in his blog, Thomas Friedman outlines the phenomenon as a metaphor for outsourcing. Who knew?) means no longer going through a gallon of Scope get that nasty taste out of your mouth.

One could easily photoshop these ads for VolumePills.

If one were so inclined.

The whole damned society revolves around their every wish and desire and peeve. What the hell's Herbert talking about?!

I wonder what Dr. Phil has to say about all this?

You would have to be braindead to date the most disgusting male in porn, or at least never seen one of his pathetic movies...big fucking deal he shoots a lot of cum on poor girls faces that get paid for it.

I am guessing she doesn't know where his filthy penis has been...or she probably does and needs the attention.

Peter North is a joke, a cartoon character, I don't know anyone that actually cares about him as a person.

These ads just show YET AGAIN how society is so, so, so, so fucked up.

What went wrong?

I don't think she's actually dating Peter North; it's probably just a joke referencing the ad copy that she's "soaked by love."

Once upon a time I worked for a little company called Shiseido in their 5S store on Spring Street NYC (now defunct). All of the salespeople were told by a female Japanese executive one day that they had purposely made the texture of the moisturizers exactly like cum because they had done independent tests with women and discovered that they always gravitated towards those the most. True story. Just sayin'.
