in SoHo showing four languid,
half-dressed models engaging in group sex. That billboard managed to be more offensive than
Calvin Klein's last campaign, which featured half-clad dead bodies. I guess
and death sell jeans. Go figure.
Not to be outdone, Burger King just released their new 'Super 7 Incher' ad
, equating burgers with acts that are
best kept private. Absent from the ad was any hint of subtlety. Apparently Burger King believes that appealing to your sexual
appetite will titillate you into buying their burgers. Or something.
Moving right along, this weekend San Francisco celebrated sexual 'diversity'
with the 39th annual Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Parade & Festival. This fun festival includes
a Dyke March and the annual Castro Street Dance hosted by the Sisters of Perpetual
Indulgence. If last years' Festival is any indicator, nudity and sex will be prominently
featured. In the public square.
Gays celebrate diversity by using electroshock
Ditto New York. Last weekend, New York played host to the Folsom-East Deviant Sex-Fest
. Again, homosexual bondage,
fisting and the casual swapping of bodily fluids played out in the public square.
Lewdness laws were suspended for the duration. Just imagine the outcry if that were a terrorist
receiving electro shock instead of an American citizen intent on displaying his
sexual habits and his genitals in public.
These increasingly public displays of sex that many now claim as a right, portray
sex as the mere indulgence of a fleeting impulse instead of an act that used to
be associated with love. Sex, which is considered private and sacred by most Americans,
is now being brought down to the level of a crude bathroom joke. And its being done
smack dab in the middle of the public square, where channel changers and radio dials
are of no use.
Last week Apple decided to cash in on the sexual tsunami by supplying porn to Iphone users
. Since we are still a capitalist
country, (for now, at least) this is Apple's right. Just as it is the right of consumers
to choose not to download their porn. A choice that is increasingly being denied
many Americans as smut, porn and casual sex become staples of more advertising campaigns.
As more 'gay pride' events take place in ever more public places. As more and more
Americans ascribe to the notion that their sexuality belongs in the public domain
instead of in the bedroom.

In today's public square, it has been decided that Christians have no right to foist their beliefs on others, but no such constraints shackle the gay activists, businesses
and the old media who continue to thrust their demeaning view of sex into the face of every American.
Sex sells. Appealing to base instincts, prurience and scandal will always find an
audience in those that need to see ugliness in others in order to feel better about
The silver lining is, at least now we'll be able to identify those sad
souls. They're the ones wearing Calvin Klein jeans and stuffing Burger King 7 inchers
into their mouths.
