Yeah...this is absurd. i don't really like it...it's very vulgar.

Anyway, the copy 'when was the last time you felt like the first' was already made for some ad, which I can't recall the brand. Surely it was not for vaginal products.

Bad!

You don't have to show explicit images to be gross...

When was the last time you did something for the first time. Emirates.

I don't like the tone of this communication. Plus is it addressed to a woman with loose end or a man whose woman has loose ends?

The pink is bedazzling. Too loud. Copy is good. But does it communicate well to the prospective consumer?

INSULTING. apart from the third ad, these guys lost the plot.
-------------SEX is SEX. a relationship is a relationship. Dont mix the two.
Disgusting.

really? a relationship without sex can be called dating maybe...

to all the boys here.. just tell me what is disgusting? the truth? This is a product and need to be told...

To me, the agency must have been thought the same way you guys did... otherwise they could have been more brave.. No problem what the "boys" think as you are not the target customer anyways.

I remember that breast cancer awareness ads were disgusting too. Women are only good for ads if they are between 16-26 with no health conditions and preferably blond... right?

Well, maybe we are not the target...as I bet 60% of the commenters here are not the target for the super lexus car, even though we give our opinion as professionals (or I believe it should be), do we not?

Anyway...we are then supposed to think they used a good and proper way to communicate? Maybe, but I believe there are better ways to tell such a thing and sell such a product. in my opinion, they didn't choose the best way to do it. But that's just my opinion.

you are 100% right. i don't see any 'disgust' in any of these ads. very clever copy and bang on to the target. guys... as said the ads are not for you...

though it may be difficult for you to understand, there is a subtle sense of responsibility you shoulder when you are in advertising. Ofcourse you can sell your soul and get ahead - Make sexist, racist, self-esteem bashing ads that sell. But when you go a little further you begin to wonder - is this the contribution you are proud of making to society. Is this the thinking you want people to have when your kids are growing up? Would this ever make you proud of what you've done?
think about it.
its not the opinion of the otherwise opinionated bastard that i am.
It's just a thought that i keep in my head.

i think you got this all wrong. this is a health issue... just like the guys have softer penises, women get larger vaginas by age... And how the hardeners are not unrespectfull, this product is not too...

I don't agree...these are neat ads...simple and telling upfront that this is the product. Women want things like this and men too....but yes creativity could have done it good

I think the choice to make a copy-based campaign is quite immediate (so avoiding the risk of using some kind of trivial visual joke). All the same, I find it a right and effective choice, and the result is not insulting or gross at all. The copy gets to the point with three mild wordplays, just enough to get you interested in the product.
