Yet another LYC ad complaint turfed out

Thu 3 Oct 2013 In: New Zealand Daily News

A fresh complaint about a Get It On! billboard has been dismissed. A. Wilkins wrote to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) concerned that the Love Your Condom ad pictured was inappropriate on such a high visibility medium, “as children were exposed to the advertisement especially during school holidays.” Wilkins added “the billboard depicts two men together in a sexual way” and said children were too young to be exposed to such adult sexual knowledge. In a majority decision, the ASA’s complaints board has ruled there are no grounds to proceed with the complaint. It follows four similar rulings this year.
