Hello all, I have waited on posting this due to the fact I was trying to find a way to get the articles images themselves on but since I only found them in physical print it proved to be very hard.... Anway, lets dwell on this for a bit...
Last month I was looking in a InStyle magazine and one of the advertisment pages was for Ky Jellies "intrigue" lubricant. No big deal, I have seen them everywhere but this one really caught my eye so as you are reading this think about the times that you have seen an article such as this and what you thought about it.
Anyway, it was a deep romantic purple that covered the seen and everything was satiny and sexual. It has a man and a woman on it, who were both white, and both had wedding rings on.
So many things went through my head.... They are saying that you need this to have sex? Because sex should be pleasurable? What about a structural functionalist view of intercourse? What do you think the conflict theorists are saying about this?
They have KY "Yours and Mine" and Intrigue that when you blow on it it tingles or something ( I am seriously just waiting for the day when they make one that when you clap and snort two times an omelet appears on your perfect hetrosexual lace covered night stand).... what about the exploitation of the market? What about a symbolic interactionists idea of botched performances? Is it right for a man to rely on lubricant to please his woman instead of being able to do it himself?
The image itself showed this very intimate atmosphere... ONe of the commercials even had the actors say that the "mom had been busy all day running the kids around and now that dad is home form work, the 2 kids (perfect right?) are playing at the neighbors, they have a minute to squeeze in a quickie" and this jellie is the way to do it!
How do you think society would respond if two gay men did the add?
Just run with it.... I am now craving an omelet so I am going to my kitchen.
