Lingerie Ads: Not Always For Men

Here's a lingerie commercial men will like. But, it's not a commercial for men. It's a commercial for that certain percentage of women who prefer to get their pleasure from other women. Interesting.

Dallas Cheerleader Babe PETA Billboard Banned

An anti-rodeo billboard featuring a scantily clad ex-Dallas Cowboys cheerleader has been declared too hot for general audiences here.

The advertisement shows a sultry-looking Bonnie-Jill Laflin, who also appeared on the TV series Baywatch, wearing nothing but very short shorts - partially unzipped - and cowboy boots while lying down in hay. Her right arm covers her breasts as she holds a white cowboy hat.

The billboard's caption reads "Nobody likes an eight-second ride" - a double entendre playing off the eight seconds rodeo competitors need to stay on their bucking animals to score points."

Outdoor company Lamar said, "The way she was dressed was the biggest reason (we turned it down)"

This is one thing I actually wish PETA was able to do!

New WB Series: Dawson's Creek Spinoff, Awesome Creek

Following the cancellation of Dawson's Creek, the WB has just announced a spin off to the long running series. The new series, Awesome Creek, will drop the male stars of the former series and focus exclusively on the females, Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams, as they explore a new and different kind of relationship.

With the saturation of the reality series format, the WB will take the lead in developing shows that further stretch the limits of broadcast television.

The series is set to debut in October.

Holmes and Williams were unavailable for comment.

The WB is talking a bold step here by going against the status quo of television. The new series, which is not shy about either nudity or lesbian related subject matter is sure to raise heated debate. With Sex in the City in its last season, maybe it's time for Sex in the Creek.
