Trojan evidently makes a vibrator and is advertising it heavily in ny.

How is it that the FCC flipped out when I saw an old lady's pierced breast for 2 seconds but this is OK?

America is getting stranger and stranger - the sexual commercials for men all have to do with inadequate sexual performance and ED and the ones for women are now about vibrators.

If it is the ad I am thinking of, it's been playing for at least a year. The one with the dirty old hag peeping in on the conversation with the two young women in front?

I don't know, but it sure is awkward when that commercial comes on when my parents are in the room.

Agreed, and they are incredibly fucking stupid. The dialogue is meant to be tongue in cheek and clever, but is actually corny and ridiculous.

It's as silly as the tampon commercials (with blue liquid and girls dancing like idiots) and STD medication commercials (with people rock climbing, horseback riding, running in fields).

I do have to say there are these series of tampon commercials for some brand that poke fun at all that stuff, and it's pretty funny.

In all seriousness who designs vibrators? Is there a university degree and if so should one be more inclined to study engineering or anatomy?

Ergonomics? I met a guy that studied this, he claimed not to design vibrators but it sounded like he had at least some of the right skill set.

Solution, move out of your parents' place. Jesus, don't we all have private living arrangements and HD DVRs, a HTPC for HD streaming porn, and at least a 40" 1080P 120Hz TV to watch it on? Ughhh.
