When I played college ball we got all the Nike shoes and gear we could dream of. The year we beat GA Tech and Indiana to go to the sweet 16 we got so much stuff I was giving it away. I always thought they had great gear. It was all in the midst of Michael Jordan being banned from wearing his new Air Jordan's because the NBA thought they gave him an edge. What a riot.

I was wondering when someone was going to notice that it wasn't about shoes, it was about the girl Laughing

It's mesmerizing satisfaction
I feel it in my gut
can't pry my eyes from all the action
of a well formed chubby butt

I have read that hungry male baboons, given a choice between food and watching videos if female baboon butts, choose the videos.

It's hardwired. (So to speak Laughing )

But what isn't is that the force of "sex" has gotten so used-up by advertisers selling stuff by appealing to it that they're over the edge into porn now in commercials like this one, and it seems to be about the only thing a lot of network TV programs/movies have going for them.

I say it's . . . odd . . . that people who'd stand up for traditional values in a heartbeat . . . don't. Or else keep moving where the line should be further and further.

If there is TV 20 years from now, there'll be 14-year-old girl contestants screwing dogs to win "America's Hardthrob" -- egged on by their stage mothers.

Well, among consenting adults it's all fine, as long as respect is maintained. Appreciating the lady isn't disrespectful, belittling her or dehumanizing her would be.

Traditional values? Those folks got laid too Laughing Daddy may not have chased after it, but he darned sure looked Smile

I miss the point where pruerient interest isn't pruerient interest.

What I have against porn isn't that it's pruerient. It's that it's impersonal. A degradation of the human spirit.

But it belongs in the closet. Not on a billboard or in a magazine. Or on TV.

All the old cliches are true. And that's one of them. C.S. Lewis could get together with his friends, smoke pipes, drink beer and "sing smutty" the way college kids did when I was young ("Oh Charlotte the Harlot's the girl we adore/The pride of the prairie, the cowpuncher's whore") without being a "hypocrite" or any the less a sincere Christian.

That division's there for a reason.

I thought this was one of those places?

I can separate the appreciation of the female physique from the intent to have it. I can also appreciate it while respecting the person. The dehumanizing of women in pornography is a direct reflection of the weak men who seem to need it, men who can't handle real women so they turn them into fantasies without souls. But, like all other things, it's probably a bi-product of our individual environment. You spend your life around a lot of women and they aren't so scary that you have to create this little fear-free fantasy to put them into. You don't and you're just another guy who can't deal with them, can't understand or relate and adapt your patterns to theirs so you retreat into something that works for you. Porn isn't about women who submit to the fantasies of men, it's about men who can't understand and relate to women.

Appreciating the female form, and the work that it takes to be as fit as the lady in that picture, is respectful and not shameful, IMHO.

Agreed. God created us all in His image. To make an observation that a woman is a thing of beauty is a good thing. To take her form and lust after it and pervert God's intention of that creation is another.

Not only the photo, but the ad itself has a positive message. I think that the advertising in the media has bombarded us with impossible images of physical perfection which 99% of the population cannot achieve. It's not reality. The message is one of feeling good for what and who you are and being willing to work on being as good as you can be. Now that doesn't really qualify as pornography does it??

Fascination with and lingering over the laschivious, savoring it, is pornographic.

Here's the deal : when it stays in the right brain where it belongs, as instinctual, it's proper.

When the left brain co-opts it, it becomes depravity. Then it starts taking stronger and stronger stimuli . . . and viagra . . .

You just made my case. It doesn't belong in "the media." And it never would have been allowed there.

I find nothing in that photo or in that ad to be lascivious. Whether or not it leads you to lascivious thoughts is for you to decide, but to decide that it leads others to it is pretentious, really. And, that kind of thinking is also what detracts from freedom. I kind of like my freedom. I don't think this ad or this thread is stepping on anyone else's freedom or endangering anyone (as I'm not inclined towards perverse, ill intentioned addictions), so I'm rather inclined to think that's quite alright and proper, given the context.

Context is really where you separate appreciation from illness when it comes to the human body, wouldn't you think?
