Fab Flash: Tom Ford Sunglasses Ad Banned in Italy

After being published last month in three Italian magazines, the country's advertising watchdog, the Institute for Advertising Self-Discipline (IAP) has banned Tom Ford Eyewear ads. This specific image, showing a sunglasses-wearing woman with a man's finger in her mouth was ruled "markedly vulgar" because the "scene evokes an offending and abusive act against women, which degrades the dignity of the person." On the Tom Ford website, the entire collection of Spring 2008 ads are acknowledged to be sexually explicit. Do you find this image to be offensive?
