Eww: Organ Donation Edition

November 15th, 2008     by Cate Simpson     Comments

Apparently you can use sex to sell anything, even organ donation:

From the Belgian men?s magazine, P-magazine. Ad by Reborn to be Alive.

This is so gross. If this woman was actually in need of someone’s organs, she’d be laid out in a hospital somewhere at death’s door. These are not acceptable circumstances to want to be “inside” someone.

Also, do people think sex is the only reason men do anything? Why don’t they get more worked up about the fact that most advertising assumes that men are callous and sex-obsessed?

Hat tip to Feminist Law Profs.
