Sexual Relationship Improvement Billboard Refused
Anytime the subject of woman and orgasms arises, everyone jumps on the topic and goes nuts. Everyone's writing about a company called Surprise Parties which hosts parties for women to sell sexual aids and discuss means to rekindle their romance. Recently, Carr Knowledge, an agency with offices in Nashville placed a large billboard buy for Surprise Parties that contained the company's new headline, "Stop Faking It." Nashville outdoor companies CBS and Lamar have refused to accept the buy. The 41 other states Car Knowledge placed boards had no issue with the ad which features company's seven senior managers dressed in pink under the headline. The only skin showing on the board are hands and faces.
Surprise Parties VP Donna Wittrig blames the dirty male mind saying, Once again the male mind has taken something so fun and slightly innocent to perversion." says Wittrig. "We are in the home party business where adult women host their friends, family and colleagues in the comfort of their home for a night of laughter, food, fun, friends and romance tips along with sensual items to spice up anyone's love life. Yes, we sell relationship enhancers but to say that is our "game" is a completely false statement. Just as the Titans football teams "game" is not popcorn sales. Yes, popcorn is being sold at the Titans stadium but their "game" is football. Our game is helping couples ignite the flames of passion in their relationship through honest communication, romance, fun, passion and play. Our game is not the sale of relationship enhancers entirely."
Carr Knowledge's Jeff Hayie is happy to live in bible belt Nashville but is saddened the area's reactionary conservatism. "I'm proud to be from here but when stuff like this happens, it underlines the stereotype." There you have it. Hooters billboards with gigantically-breasted waitresses are OK but fully clothed woman talking intelligently about improving sexual relationships is considered crass. See the full-sized billboard .
