Can we just talk a minute? My family watches TV together, as I imagine most do. To say our commercials are getting a little--uh--frank, is something of an understatement. Between feminine product commercials and certain male medications, it's getting a little embarrasing to watch TV together.
Do we really need to see feminine products riding rollercoasters, withstanding a forceful spray of blue water, being put through a rigorous gymnastic routine? "What's that for, Mom?" Not exactly the way I wanted to initiate the talk with my eight-year old.
Do we need to see E.D. commercials that warn of--uh--certain side effects? I gotta say, as the only female sitting in a living room of males, it can get a little uncomfortable. "Mom, what's erectile dysfunction?" These commercials run continuously during sporting events.
Preparation H, Gas X, Summer's Eve . . . the list goes on. Hey, I know they have to sell their products, make a living. But is it too much to ask for a little tact?
