In Belgium, women eat giant squids (oops, octopi) raw, whole.

(click ad twice) Ad from a new print campaign for Belgian women's magazine Feeling. As you can see, this is the "gastronomie" execution. For the octopus's sake, I hope that is Photoshopped. From the agency press note:
" The creative idea is a simple one in that we amplified each aspect of pleasure to emphasize and reinforce the message. The execution is very gloves off." Shut-up, Buzz Buzzword. Previous Marketing to Women.

Tentacle rape or shokushu goukan is a concept found in some horror hentai titles, where various tentacled creatures (usually fictional monsters) rape or otherwise penetrate women, anthropomorphous creatures, Futanari and, less commonly, men. The genre is quite popular in Japanese erotica, and is even the subject of much parody.

For Western audiences, tentacle erotica often symbolizes hentai as a phenomenon.

They probably haven't been placed yet, just released to ad trade sources for publicity purposes.
