    let's say you are getting married, and your lovely bride wears an artistic (nude) wedding lingerie gown of white sheer translucent material so that she can be seen practically nude through it.

    not porn right (a wedding can't possibly be porn!) ? not immoral/disgusting right?

    so, it's ok with your parents, in-laws, relatives, friends, guests, kids? ok for wedding photogs to post her (artistic nude) pics all over the internet and in all the wedding magazines....

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    This is cos you never invite artistic people to your wedding. Otherwise bride and groom can come somersaulting out nude and all will clap.

    Jokes aside, I find that women are sexiest with more mystery. Revealing outfits are like slapstick comedies. You laugh and laugh and clap but it doesn't leave a lasting impression

    Basically they are using women as sex objects to sell something.
    To those who think this is OK, you are entitled to your opinion and I dont want to dwell or argue on it. You are perhaps one of those whose mothers/daughters/wives think that such lingerie ads are OK too. And should one day your own daughters/sisters/wives decide to be a lingerie model, you too do not mind.

    To those of us who have mothers, sisters, wives, daughters . . the sexual exploitation of women is NOT acceptable.

    For some time already, there is a growing trend in the west against such exploitations. So this is not about westernisation or what.

    I am not saying I am right and you are wrong - just expressing my point of view and I can happily live with yours. But I will not support any company using sex to sell.

    I don't mind as long as it is her choice and she is comfortable with it

    so, it's ok with your parents, in-laws, relatives, friends, guests, kids? ok for wedding photogs to post her (artistic nude) pics all over the internet and in all the wedding magazines....

    that's why you don't see Agent Provocateur ads on the streets in singapore
    Wearing only lingerie is not a form of 'sexual innuendo'?
    I will agree with you if you will allow your mothers/wives/sisters/daughters to walk around on the streets wearing only lingerie!

    To be a decent person in this world, we have to STOP exploiting women, stop exploiting the weak and stop cheating the lesser-educated.
    I feel very strongly about this because in our society, many times, I see the poor who end up being exploited. They buy things from C****S on hire-purchse and end up paying much more in the end but the rich can get financing for 1%!!!
    In many countries, kids are forced into prostitution.
    So using sex to sell anything is NOT acceptable in my language.

    Exactly! I have lived in a western country for some time and I can tell you that there are many people there who are against exploitation of women. It is NOT a western malaise.

    nope. it's not. a lady can wear lingerie. prance around in lingerie. it's normal. but her actions would suggest otherwise if she happened to pose provocatively. if you're married, would you pounce on your wife every time she changes clothes?

    i think you're missing the point of PRINT AD versus REAL-LIFE.

    What do you mean when you say you are "quite liberal"?

    Are you saying you dont mind seeing those sexy ads but you will not allow your own mothers/wives/sisters/daughters do it?

    Being liberal does not mean condoning sexual exploitation of women.

    I thought we were referring to those big adverts showing a lady in lingerie in full public view?
    I have nothing against women wearing lingerie.

    So you WILL allow your mothers/wives/sisters/daughters to pose in such advertisements wearing only lingerie for all to see?
    Its OK if you say yes, because earlier on, I did accept that there will be people who have opposing views to mine. It takes all kinds to make this society.
