Durex 'sex ring' advertisements in 7-Eleven stores could infect young minds. Remove them

I was at the 7-Eleven store at Ginza Plaza when I noticed a poster on the sale of a 'vibrating sex ring' by Durex.

The poster was placed prominently on the store front and the product advertised was on offer. Despite the fine print stating that it was for sale only to those above 18 years, it depicted the sex toy as a wedding ring. It desecrates the sanctity of marriage with such an association.

Such morally questionable products should not be advertised so prominently in a family store.

I would like the management of Durex and 7-Eleven to explain the rationale for placing such advertisements in the stores as they could infect the minds of young students.

Does the relevant government department vet such advertisments? Are there no laws to govern the display and promotion of such products?

Despite the propagation of objectionable materials on the internet, the authorities and civil society should take steps as far as possible to stop such advertisements from polluting our young minds.

Lucas Ho Wei-Jie

OK...How should we begin to talk about this?

Firstly, perhaps we should really start with the idea that a vibrating sex ring (aside from being tacky) has the ability to suddenly pollute young minds. I especially like the fact that Lucas seems to think that young minds can become infected by these advertisements. Infected by what specifically, he does not say...

Secondly, I like that he seems to think that sex and marriage aren't really tied together. I mean, the institution of marriage has nothing to do with siree...Can't talk about sex and marriage or even associate the two, otherwise, we will pollute young minds and destroy the institution of marriage. (It has, however, been said that the institution of marriage may be destroyed without the association with sex...But that's only said by the most depraved of individuals and they should be kicked out from our pure society...)

OMG....Is this from the same generation of youths that kill themselves over physical inadequacies? Where do such (ridiculously) puritanical viewpoints come from? (People, look at the poster for yourself and see if it incites you to lust...or worse depravations...)

I'm pretty speechless for now...Pop in a comment please.
