Moderator's Note:
  • In order to improve site performance, long threads that are draining our loading time will be closed and we are going to be periodically starting new threads. This should help pages load faster.
  • Please remember that not everyone is on a fast connection, or has a large screen, and keep your picture sizes to 800 pixels or less in the largest dimension. This will also help with page load speed.
  • Please refrain from posting the same images as contained in the archived threads (eg in the old closed thread).
  • Please stay on topic!
  • Please do not power post eg make empty posts with no Info/questions/Images - Empty posts cause threads to grow rapidly and is a nuisance to those who subscribe to many threads. Please take any private conversations to PMs or Profile Comments.

Thank you!



this new campaign is very disturbing! I actually felt uncomfortable watching.

To be honest im not sure, but American Apparel has been known to use famous porn stars in their campaigns so maybe it is. either way i just think the whole thing is hilarious


--edit: seems like its a spoof by Funny Or Die. Lmao

^ I hope it's a spoof. Cause it would be seriously disturbing if it was an actual campaign.

Provocative ads usually aren't really offensive to me.

To me it's just art.

Back in the ancient times, the nude body was something of beauty, both in men and women.

Go to Italy you will see many sculptures either half or full frontal naked. Go to an art museum and you will see many works of art showcasing sex or nudity.

Sex is natural and beautiful.

It's a shame that sex has been made to be dirty or shameful.

As long as the models are over 18 and consenting, I'm fine with it.

I love this ad.

Showcases all sexualities equally, which is great in my opinion.

Love is love in the end.

The kid was totally being exploited and treated as some circus freak by the photographer.

OK. So this is a born female acting to be transgenered as a spoof to something?

Oh my God lol. He's a transvestite, he takes female hormones and grows boobs and probably had a breast augmentation to boot.

Oh, lmao @ me. I thought it was an actual female, and they just stuffed her pants and drew a mustache.
