This is slightly off-topic, since it relates to the lifestyle not in the news, but rather in an ad.
There is a new ad for The Sims computer simulation game, which comes in 2 versions. One I have seen in the last few days, before 10:00 at night, and it was a fairly normal ad. The second I saw a week or so ago, late at night, and it was just like the first -- showing various people playing out fantasies with simulations of themselves -- except that it also included a young woman dressed in black, with a simulation of herself intimidating a grovelling vanilla couple with her single-tail whip.
I had slightly mixed feelings about it, since it was not clear that there was consent in her fantasy. Other than that, I thought it was nice to see an ad agency acknowledging that we exist, and are out here in numbers sufficient to be considered a worthwhile part of the market.
I don't watch enough TV to know for sure if the scene has been entirely cut out yet (I kind of expect that to happen), but I thought this worth mentioning. Anyone else seen this ad? Thoughts?
