Ariel Waldman has an interesting story on networks banning a commercial that infers that condoms can be used for safe sex, but not just safe sex: safe sex . . . for the fun of it!
Apparently, that doesn’t jive with FOX & CBS’s values:
Allegedly, the reason why the condom commercial was banned was due to the fact that Fox/CBS refuse to air ads that promote pregnancy prevention, and will only feature spots that focus on the (turnyourheadandcoughMALEcough) “health reasons” alone.
How dare a condom company promote safe sex when trying to sell condoms. Next thing you know, bike helmet companies will be promoting . . . biking . . . to sell helmets.
