Is it just me, or are the commercials on TV getting a little fleshy and provocative? I admit I get annoyed when I'm watching the tube with my husband and three boys and half-naked women start parading across the screen. Hey, I'm all for lingerie, but can you shut the bedroom door, please?
The worst of the offenders, in my opinion, is Victoria's Secret. Pardon me, but I believe Victoria exposed all her secrets long ago. To anyone and everyone who would look. Undergarments are no longer, well, under anything. Instead, they're outergarments worn by women who look nothing like any woman I know. Is it possible to be that skinny and have, ahem, bosoms like that? I'm sure many men like to think so, but I'm thinking a little reality would be nice.
And who exactly is buying all this sexy apparel at Victoria's Secret? Surely women are the main consumer--a lot of men are too embarrassed to be seen in the store--yet, these commercials, are they supposed to appeal to me? The woman? The supposed wearer of the garments? To say they turn me off is an understatement.
In fact, I haven't bought a thing from them since they began airing their racy commercials. Call it a quiet protest, but I'm living just fine without the Wonderbra, thank you very much.
