Default Banned ads

This ad has just been banned in the UK. reasoning for this is;

We noted that the model was holding up the perfume bottle which rested in her lap between her legs and we considered that its position was sexually provocative."

They continued, "We understood the model was 17 years old but we considered she looked under the age of 16. We considered that the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualise a child."
I'm not sure why they have picked up on this as there is far worse about- whats everyone else think?

It looks like she is masturbating or about to do so but I think it was her childish look that upset some people.

I can't see anything wrong with it...seems some people are so worried about the "sexualising of children" that they are willing to ban an ad with a woman who clearly looks over 16 and isn't doing anything particularly sexy.

Maybe soon all models will be required to be over 40 and skirts will only be allowed below the knee. After that we can expect burkas to keep our women safe from sexual predators no doubt.

Looks like a pramface / jailbait. Just for that I'm glad not to see her again.

It is the American actress Dakota Fanning, she played Tom Cruise's daughter in War of The Worlds, and more recently was in the Twilight movies.

From what I have read, the perfume company wanted to go for the "Lolita" look, so I guess they got what they deserved with the ban.

Red face Re: Banned ads

I used to worry about rubbish like this but then I picked up a Spanish magazine and now I'm just never worried about us Britishers . Whatever is being printed in the UK is just nowhere near pushing boundaries.
