Woman has orgasm while voting- commercial

28 Nov

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.

    I’m not sure you can really compare the outrage at the commercial to something like “Jizz In My Pants” as they are directed at different audiences. One is an ad, the other is for entertainment only (also they are created for totally different media outlets in different countries).

    This is not to say that you don’t have a point about our culture being uncomfortable with female sexuality, I’m just not sure that it has as much to do with the issue with this video.

    In fact, I think if they did a commercial about a man having an orgasm while he votes it would be far more offensive. Downright creepy. Frack… Now I need to go get that image out of my head.

    Hahaha, thanks for putting it in my head. :p And yeah, I can see your point there; when I think about it, it is an apples to oranges comparison.
