Sexual Images Make Children Have Sex Earlier

December 3, 2007

Apparently, a Victoria's Secret store in a mall in Carmel, IN was made to take down mannequins posed in "suggestive" ways featuring "sexy lingerie". Now, I may be from small town Indiana (much smaller than Carmel, certainly), but even [i]I[/i] know what Victoria's Secret is all about. My mom would refer to it as "whorewear". I prefer to think of it as a toy store.

Anyway, check out this article from the Indianapolis Star. Be warned: one of the mannequins in question is shown in the inset picture. It might make you want to run to the bathroom to relieve some pressure; I just returned from there, myself.

The dumbest part of the article? The woman who "spearheaded" the effort, but is displeased with the pajamas that they put over the mannequins instead. Her response? "Sexual Images Make Children Have Sex Earlier."

No, bitchy moms who try to shield their children from the real world make kids have sex earlier. Or at least encourage them to. I have yet to see a sexual image that forcibly held down a teenager and told them to have sex. Anyone want to place odds on how many copies of Harry Potter this slice of heaven has in her house? I'll bet she makes her kids sleep with the door open.

Note to the mother: If you're going to be stupid, at least do it in the privacy of your own home. And buy a push-up; them things is sagging pretty bad.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to call the buxom and comely Boudicca. There's a sexually-explicit image of a mannequin on the internet that's making me have inappropriate thoughts.

Right on! Couldn't agree more.
And, um, never mind that a lot of what younger girls buy in VS is pajamas. And...even if they ARE interested in the bras...why is that a bad thing? They're really well-made and last quite a while, plus they're comfortable (as bras go, anyway).

There are some rather explicit mannequins in Kohl's. Are they going to boycott them too?

And a memo to Sex-Insulator Mom: If you can think of something which making forbidden has made less appealing, I would like to know, because the items that come off the top of my head (drugs, alcohol) have been made harder to control and more attractive to people who shouldn't be using them by that route. If you think that telling the kids how magical an experience sex will be when they get married while telling them that they can't have it now will make your children meek, compliant, and sexless, you are either blindly optimistic to GWB's level or you have some childrearing secrets and/or drugs in which the rest of the world would be very interested.

Or sometimes they don't, which is arguably more interesting.

My interest has suddenly been piqued...

I was watching How It's Made the other night, and they had on there how they mannequins. They actually showed the process of installing metal nipples so that they'd stand up on the female mannequins.

We'd better start boycotting REI or whatever outdoor-wear company had ordered the nipplious mannequins.

I don't know which would be more painful: having metal shoved through one's nipples, or having metal nipples. I'll go with the former, though.

Given my intense dislike of needles, I'd probably opt for the former, as well.

Metal nipples might mean I'm slowly becoming a cyborg, which would just be cool.
