    This is sooo crazy. I actually checked out the advertisements and they are quite beautiful. Created by artist K Liu Wong. I’ve seen much worse. Honestly unless I stared for a while I wouldn’t even realize that it was advertising sex toys. But @Sheena Kuhn there is an illustration of a dildo in one image. Do you think that’s appropriate to place somewhere children may see it?

      Yes, the art is totally gorgeous! Personally, I do not believe such images should be seen by children. However, I also do not think the art is any worse than what the MTA has already passed. Plus, it’s considerably less crude than the examples of previous advertisements. So, while I do not support it wholeheartedly, I do support it when considering the reality of what is put up over the ideal.

    The art is so pretty on those ads! I hate that this sort of double standard exists

    #WTFMTA, the NYC subway system has refused to display Ubound Box ads because they’re supposedly “sexually offensive”, yet they have put up numerous ads centred on sexual pleasure in the past. Why is it only wrong when women’s pleasure is the focus? Use the hashtag #WTFMTA to join the fight and end the stigma surrounding female pleasure.
