Calvin Klein ad banned from Australia.

Calvin Klein‘s autumn/winter 2010 ad campaign is being spoken again, this time not for the clothes or the model Lara Stone, but because it was banned from Australian TV’s and outdoors.

When you see the pictures, you can imagine the reason: the sex appeal, the excess of nudity…But forget about all of that. The ad was banned because it allegedly promotes sexuality, promiscuity and…wait for it…sexual exploration. They linked the photos to rape and violence. I also think the campaign is a bit exaggerated, but I’m not quite fond of the reasons they gave to ban it.

What do you think about the pictures and the action taken in Australia?

    Calvin Klein has gone to far in my opinion. It is controversay to sell clothes…attention seeking. I’m not in favour of that kind of marketing. Showcase your clothes, not a rape.

    Are you kidding? Wow, how silly! This ad isn’t even that sexy and excess of nudity, are they crazy? I highly suggest the peeps in Aus don’t pick up a copy of Vogue Paris…

    Is there more to this ad that the photo above? I genuinely do not see anything wrong with the image above. Going to Google…

    Okay… Seen the full ad now. Whilst rape doesn’t spring to mind, I think they’ve gone too far. I get that sex sells but this is too much, unnecessary even. You have no idea that they’re selling the jeans.

    I don’t see it as rape but it’s too sexualised nevertheless!
