America The Prudiful

Premier outdoor advertising company Van Wagner has rejected an Armani|Exchange New York Meatpacking ad, deeming it "too racy." The ad featured Click model Parker Gregory bare-bottomed getting dressed and Rianne ten Haken on top of Kerry Degman. Will the ad cause a traffic jam or two? Yes, but that is nothing new to the Big Apple anyway. Here in the States, everything is so censored; you cannot show pubes on magazine covers because someone will get offended. You cannot have an image of someone smoking on a magazine cover because it glamorizes smoking. Give me a bloody break! European magazines like French Vogue and Vogue Hommes International, are so refreshing, they'll show pubes on the cover like it's no big deal- because really it isn't. Then publishers have the audacity to question poor magazine and ad sales. Who wants to buy a magazine or purchase space in a magazine that puts out the same bloody covers every month? 

Lets return to the issue at hand here, we all have bums and adults that do not get Brazilian's regularly, have pubs. Why are we so prude or conservative in the States? Why is it such a big deal to show a bare bum on a billboard or pubes on magazine covers?
