Networks Set To Begin Airing Condom Ads In Prime Time

| | Comments (3)

CBS and ABC have said they are seriously considering airing condom ads during prime time and daytime television. NBC and Fox and other networks will follow their lead.

I hope this concerns you as much as it does me. The condom companies say their purpose in airing their ads is to help stop the spread of disease. So, why do their ads promote products like "Warm Sensations" and "Twisted Pleasure"?

Don't be fooled by their double-speak. If the networks decide to break their self-imposed policy of not airing condom ads, we'll soon have Church & Dwight's "Trojan Man" ads bombarding our children at every turn.

You can expect that these ads will be aired repeatedly, especially during sporting events.

The networks and condom companies don't really care about what they advertise when our children are watching television. They want to make money! That's why one company president said, "we could quadruple this business." Does that sound like a company that has our children's best interest in mind?

Do you want the networks to start airing condom ads all hours of the day? Once condom companies get their foot in the door, its only a matter of time before the ads will get more and more graphic.

Please send an email message to the six major networks that use public-owned airwaves. Let them know you want them to reject any offers to air condom ads on network television.

Ya, cause it's just not enough with the feminine hygiene, birth control, and erectile disfunction commercials on tv.

We consumers have got to get behind quality television and products and convince the media with their favorite thing, the almighty dollar.

I once almost drove my car over a bluff while lunging to get Trojan Man off of the car radio.

Is there no decency left? Is nothing off limits? Isn't it bad enough that we have to look at 'those items' while waiting to pick up prescriptions? Aaaaargh.....

The Trojan Man radio adds are doubly disconcerting since I think the voice is the actor who played Mr. Peterman on Seinfeld.
