Recently the Young Socialist Party of Catalunya (in Spain) resealed this ad to encourage people to vote.
Now apparently people from both sides of the political spectrum have come out to criticize this ad as “highly offensive.”
A woman having an orgasm is highly offensive? Seriously? Meanwhile people think stuff like this is perfectly ok:
What I think is going on here is a perfect example of how people feel threatened by female sexuality. “A woman enjoying herself! Oh my heavens no! Women are supposed to be asexual angelic beings!” What’s the saying? “Nine out of ten women dislike sex, and the tenth is a prostitute.” People are just so unnerved at any public acknowledgement that women can enjoy sexual pleasure. In private, sure, but in public women must conform to the double standard and be sexless.
Shame on you Spain, and shame on everyone who is so prudish and repressive to feel offended by this ad.
