I think that Denim for Men ad was made in the days before anyone wore a condom.

Here's my problem with the Tom Ford ad. It's not the breasts, pose, sweat....anything like that. It's the total lack of anything that's actually sexy. It's blatant, cheesy and not even mildly erotic, which, coming from Tom Ford, is a huge problem in my book.

It just looks tacky, very Penthouse magazine, not provocative.

It almost looks like someone trying to be Tom Ford and failing miserably.

Sidenote, I'm fairly certain that the image was actually shot by Marilyn Minter, not Terry Richardson.

It's wrong to generalize in a country with 300 million inhabitants, but USA is thought to be very conservative compared to Europe. Just look at the whole Janet Jackson and one of her melons popping out .. It was a national crisis.

^ hahaha i am in canada when i saw it... it was like a split second and you can hardly tell what is really going on....
back to the tom ford thread, i dont find it too offensive, but it is disgusting cheap, old style and tacky..... it is even worse when they objectize a women in such way (omg tom ford can do waaayyyyy better then this!)

the boobs look weird, non?
but it's funny... a branlette espagnole with a perfume......
it's really porn... no more porno chic or whatever... it's just porn...
Wear my perfume and your wife (mistress, gf etc.) will agree for a branlette espagnole... Do you think it would work???

Actually the thing that disturb me (not really... but a little) is the open mouth... I think this is what could shock most... I let you imagine... young ppl on this forum...no need to explain...

I keep not understanding what is so shocking about this image. A lot (of action) is suggested, but nothing is shown really. It's a teaser, the rest is all left to our imagination.

Some find it ugly - that's undestandable.
Some find it bad taste - still understandable.
But offensive? How? For the thoughts it makes us have? Well, who is to blame then

I guess the level of explicitness is what bothers people.
I personally never thought this ad would cause so much discussion, even though it's so porn.

what's the teaser, there???
everything is shown... the perfume (masculine sex), the boobs with the perfume btw (the action = branlette espagnole / spanish wank???).... the open mouth (the end of the act, the boy pleasure... need more explanation, about it???)

you wanted the perfume exploding in the girl's mouth??? that wouldn't be tom Ford... but really Terry Richardson...

think as a feminist, and you'll find the shock...
A woman is used to sell for men... + on the picture, she's the "object" giving pleasure to the man, and it makes men think they can give pleasure like this to a woman...
that makes sense, it's not complicated... it's a simple message...

Indeed. I certainly didn't think of bukkake or "branlette espagnole" when I saw the image. So who's to blame for people seeing that?

Maybe that's for Lindsay Lohan and Terry Richardson's ads - good idea The problem, again, is that the woman doesn't look like she's getting any pleasure...of anything...except protein shots

Yeah, I can see your point now.
One question though: what makes you think a man can't give pleasure to a woman like this?

I guess standards, norms and culture aside, what makes it so awful is that it is specifically designed to shock. But it is so badly done it makes it crass. Every time I look at it I think 'Trainwreck'.

And what makes it offensive/insulting? Tom Ford thinking that men looking at this ad would be interested in the perfume

Maybe you shouldn't judge other people's preferred forms of sexual pleasure

When you give pleasure to your partner, you feel good too, non? The woman on the picture seems pretty hot to me
