How Often is the Word Vagina Used on TV? let alone in advertising? LET ALONE FOR FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS??
I am not going to get a debate into the usage of feminine hygiene products here. Wether you use a sponge, a moon cup, a tampon, a pad, a liner, or any combination of the above is really your own business. There is the whole argument that we are meant to hide our period because of yada yada yada, but…for me, its all about whatever makes YOU feel comfortable. So, moving on.
This is me celebrating Carefree using the word Vagina in advertising. Now, I wont lie. when i first saw this ad it was 10 pm at night, and I will be keeping my eye out for it during the day, but the fact is the word is rarely used on Australian TV. And why? 50 % of the population have a Vagina. Clearly, this doesn’t make it dirty or unmentionable. Carefre also tackles Vaginal Discharge – which is completely normal, though not talked about. Again, why? Apparently, there is an uproar already (here and here), so I will be keeping you posted, but until then…. what other ads have there been? What about the Beaver ad?
For the Ultimate Care down there!
Mousey Mousey? When the Pussy is playing with the Tampons….
What about Ads that just didnt even mention Vagina, let alone its many pseudonyms?
How about comparing tampons to Penises?

Liners as protection… X men Style…
