    Is Nothing Private Anymore?
    Some of the commercials you see on TV these days is just crazy. I have seen commercials for the following in recent days. I guess nothing is private anymore. They need warnings for commercials now so the little ones don't get an earful and start asking questions.

    vaginal itching
    over-active bladder
    hemorrhoids
    erectile dis-function
    STDs

    I never thought to look for sanctity in hemorrhoids before but since you brought it up -- okay.

    I'm not sure if sacred is the right word here.

    How about private?

    Anyway, you get the idea. Just not sure I want to see a commercial on TV talking about genital herpes and flare-ups.

    They've been around forever - although it's possible the STD/ED commercials are a relatively new thing since they just started allowing ion drug ads on TV several years back.

    As long as they don't have them on during episodes of Dora the Explorer or Transformers, I'm fine with it. If your kids are old enough to be watching the shows those kinds of commercials turn up in, they're old enough to see the commercials, I think.

    But you can't even watch a football game (at 1 in the afternoon) with a 9 year old without having to explain erectile disfunction with all the ads for it during those games!

    When viagra trieds to make more subtle commercials, they were slammed by the FDA because they require that every medical ad clearly explain what it does, what it does it for, and the side effects.

    I especially "enjoy" it when little ones sing along with the viva viagra commercials they hear during sporting events.

    I am talking about around the 5pm - 6pm hour while I am watching the news. The news is bad enough these days. Between the latest murder story on the news, you have a nice "erectile disfunction" commercial. Wonderful.

    What's the big deal about those 30 seconds commercials? - They show more hot and steamy stuff on some of the soap operas they show around mid-day that last about 1hr?

    On some of those 30 seconds commercials they may say how to Get*-Up, but on many 1hr soap operas they show how to stay* on the bed.

    Seymour, perspective, man, perspective. In the larger scheme of things this stuff is insignificant crapola.

    While we're on the erectile disfunction ads: Can anyone tell me why on earth every Ci*lis commercial ends with the happy middle-aged couple sitting side by side facing away from the camera IN MATCHING BATHTUBS???

    I just find that so bizarre. Matching bathtubs ends every single one of their commercials. They can be on the beach or in the mountains. They can be in a car or in a plane. They can be just anywhere -- BUT THEY ALWAYS END UP SIDE BY SIDE IN MATCHING TUBS.

    Drives me NUTS!!

    Gary,

    Sometimes you must have to use your imagination too!

    I don't know if you're a regular user of those products, or not, but what else do you want to see on those commercials?

    At least they show those middle-aged couples, sitting side by side facing away from the camera "IN MATCHING BATHTUBS", and relaxing to get ready for the next round, while they are getting cleaned of their first dirty workout.

    Those commercials would make less money, if they show those same middle-aged couples in bed, sleeping after just round one.



    It's all about marketing! - Think about It!


    What?

    You didn't received the "$250.00 OFF" coupon, for a new Jacuzzi when you got the first, "Thanks for your pills order" email?

    Message to kids: "There is a pill for every need". You should never be bloated, hurt, fat, depressed, arterial clogged or limp. After they are well programed try telling them that weed is bad.

    A couple of the drug companies have gone to saying "check with your prescriber" instead of doctor.

    Oh, I get it with the imagination part.

    But what I don't get is -- Why Bathtubs? And why TWO bathtubs instead of just one big tub?

    And no matter where the setting is -- indoors or outdoors, seashore or mountains -- they always have the tubs?? Like it's normal, happy sex for couples to end up in two bathtubs sort of "soaking off into the sunset"??

    Plus....think about it.....this is the ULTIMATE conclusion for a man. Just had great sex, pleased his woman ( or pet ) and is rewarded with his own PRIVATE bath. No pretend cuddling. No "just hold me". No "think you can do it again?"

    The man is the one who ultimatley will have to pay for his part-time crane lifting drug and therefore is catering to his fantacy. HE is HAPPY in the two matching bathtub ending

    PS: those who liked the word pet in the above sick joke please do not reply.

    So it seems like you didn't get that coupon on your receipt or on the confirmation email they send you.

    Forget about it!

    They just told that you returned the pills, because those pills didn't worked for you!

    Sorry Gary, try a free placebo next time!

    In that case, isn't everything we do insignificant crapola and therefore this forum should be empty?

    Actually most of them end with "If you experience an erection for over four hours seek medical help". I just roll on the floor evertime I hear that one. I'd like to see that demonstrated on TV.
