British commercials for vibrators and condoms are the best in the world - by Jennifer Gunter
Misinformation is the biggest enemy of a healthy and safe sex life. If you don't know how to have good sex it is harder to be sexually fulfilled.
Vibrators are a great way for women to enhance their sexual experience. The problem? They are also one of the best-kept secrets. There is an occasional column in a women’s magazine, but the only advertisement to hit the public airwaves is from Trojan for their finger-vibe. It only appears on late night television and it is so bad is laughable (even worse than the ads for erectile dysfunction!). Trojan has made an inspiring commercial before, their “Men are pigs unless they wear a condom ad”, so it is disappointing they couldn’t find the same creative spark to support female orgasm, especially when they want women to shell out $19.99 for their product. Perhaps Trojan realized they wouldn’t get these ads on television so didn’t invest the capitol. After all, two of the major networks, FOX and CBS rejected the Trojan “Pigs” commercial all the while running advertisements for erectile dysfunction.
This is not the case in Europe. Ads for vibrators not only appear on television but they are also creative and cheeky. Hands down the best ads come from Durex, a British company whose motto is “ Sex plays a fundamental role in our physical and emotional wellbeing and a rewarding sex life should be everyone’s to enjoy”. Amen sister!
