Wood you be­lieve it?


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A “SEX­IST” mag­a­zine ad fea­tur­ing three fel­las wear­ing just their pants has been banned for be­ing of­fen­sive.

The ad, for pho­tog­ra­phy in­sur­ance, fea­tured a top­less man wear­ing a pair of tight blue trunks, an­other wear­ing a blue thong with his hips vis­i­ble, and a third wear­ing just a skimpy blue pos­ing pouch which cov­ered his gen­i­tals but left his hips and part of his pu­bic re­gion vis­i­ble.

Un­der the ad for Aaduki Mul­ti­me­dia In­sur­ance were the words: “Can’t see the wood for the trees.”

Some­one com­plained to watch­dogs that it was sex­ist and de­grad­ing to men, and chal­lenged whether it was of­fen­sive.

The Ad­ver­tis­ing Stan­dards Au­thor­ity in­ves­ti­gated and found the ad­vert to be in breach of rules re­gard­ing “harm and of­fence” and or­dered it should not be used again.
