Provocative / Offensive Ads #1
I'm doing a research project for my English final. I chose to research sexuality in fashion. I have a few articles so far, mostly on advertisments. Does anybody have any suggestions or sites that have either articles or pictures?

Thanx in advance.


from truebluejen:
What do you think are the most provocative ads/have been demeed offensive?
I'm helping someone with their coursework so if you can find some I'd be grateful

There's a whole thread on controversial ads on the "Your Favorites" topic.

plus quite some topics on the 'end of sex' as the new direction in fashion advertisement, both at the designers&collections and at the trendspotting section , right here at tFS.

good luck with your paper spike

not sure what angle you approach your project, but http://www.commercialcloset.org really has a lot of information about attitudes toward homosexuality in advertising.

I wonder if her husband gets weirded out by seeing those shots. I know it's all fantasy and that it's her job to sell the clothes but I'd still be taken back by seeing my wife and mother of my toddler with her lips on another guys bum...
