British penis enlargement ad banned after 'inadequacy' complaint

An advert for a penis enhancement has been banned after a man complained it left him feeling "inadequate".

The man contacted advertising watchdogs after being bombarded with ads telling him his penis size was a "disappointment" and that his partner might be "turned off".

The ad boasted men could "have a penis that's inches longer and much thicker naturally, without surgery, pumps or exercise. Guaranteed or your money back!" with the help of Maximus penis enlargement capsules.

But for one man, the ads aimed at tackling his manhood came too thick and fast after he began receiving the Life Healthcare four page mailing on his doorstep on a monthly basis so he complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

The ASA banned the ad and said the company must suppress the complainant's personal data.


Sounds like he does have a small one.  Such ads are as common as dirt on the internet. They have never bothered me.

I recommend listening to the song "Penis Dimension" by Frank Zappa and the Mothers.

There's only one person to whom the size of my manhood matters, and she has never complained about it. In fact, she deletes those e-mails on a regular basis.

I thought advertizing was a pillar of the capitalist system!?

Actually, mailings such as the ones here are only possible because they are, in effect, subsidized thru a govt postal service. In a free mkt, they would not be economical.

P.S. Anon 2:57,

If you are inundated as you say then you have brought it on yourself by failing to avail yourself of the tools that can control such problems. E.G. Get a PVR and record your TV shows, mute the commercials on live shows such as sporting events, use s/w such as AdBlocker Plus for your computer, and so on. I rarely if ever watch even a commercial a day; most days none. And I have zero problem with online ads, hardly ever even see an example. Email spam is still a bit of a problem, but not too bad with the proper filters. You can use the solutions available or you can whine; your choice.

I hate to break it to you, but the ad on the TV is not speaking to you. It's an ad. It's not speaking to you.

Any inadequacies you may have are in your own mind.
