Condom Ads: Too Much or Straight to the Point?

I just came across these Manix ads for super-thin condoms. While practicing safe sex, these rubbers allow you to be so close to your partner that you actually become one. Now I'm all for ads that promote safe sex, even if they push the envelope, but my first reaction to seeing these was T-M-I!

Want to see another? Just


What do you think of these Manix ads? Are they too in-your-face or are they perfectly portraying their product: a condom so thin you'll never feel as close?

Doesn't look like an ad for europe - I don't even think that brand can be found here at all. Here it's durex or hansaplast. They are pretty disturbing images.

I don't care if they publish this filth in Europe, but not in MY America.

Well I love them! Definitely eye-catching and memorable. That's what a good advertisement should do- It's not like they're going to put these ads in children's mags anyway.

Certainly not medicine cabinet material.:D It's very tacky too look at. And, to be honest, one person is inside another, what more closeness can you need?:P

avocado_seed, I thought so, too! Hahaha, how sad. Anyway, after realizing it was NOT ad ad for Gossip Girl, I thought it was a bit tacky to have naked bodies in mid coitus like that. I hope that ad doesn't get plastered on the side of buses because it's pretty inappropriate. THEN, I was freaked out because their bodies are fused together. Eww! That's soo creepy! I've seen less "sexiness" on a porno cover, so this is just plain UGLY. Also, there's too much silicon side boob in the second picture. I actually expected to also see her nipples!

They look gross to me. I wouldn't buy these products. It's just not enjoyable to look at and the whole orb-of-light thing is really cheesy. I'm all for hot ads, but there's nothing worthwhile about this indecency.

At least it's not anal...

WTF @ the fused bodies!
anna_muffin anna_muffin 9 years
Yeah, they're kind of creepy. I actually think they would be okay without the fused bodies (not suitably for teenage mags, for sure), I like the moodiness and think that guy is actually kind of hot, at least hotter than those sleazy super muscular square jaw guys that you usually see in this kind of ads.

I wonder whether there's a pair of legs running around with a fly's head calling "Hungry!". I find those adds amusing. I'm sure one day it'll be used for future advertising people as an anti-example. *lol* However, since we're already talking about it, it kinda seems to have an effect. Stiil, this is extreme photoshoping gone wrong.

lol, i know huh, sundaygreen. (for work or even if my daughter was standing over me it's kind of risky.. my husband and I looked and laughed at it ..and said maybe for Europe? and we love European porn.. after all it's much better than even American pornography. ......even though that was kind of soft-core corny.)

I think it's fine if I'm flipping through a magazine (maybe.... well... I'd expect it in Cosmo or something), but not when I'm innocently browsing through Popsugar at work!!!! I had to scroll down really quickly.

Definitely TMI. Not only does everyone using these not only know what sex looks like, but that "to become one" is a common phrase for sex anyway. What are they accomplishing here? "Our condoms make you feel like you're having sex!" ... Naw. Really. Did they expect people to say "I never would've guessed! I just thought those stretchy things were for making water balloons with." Seriously. Plus, they are seriously creepy looking, and I do think that it's the same guy in both pictures. Extra gross factor.
