This Cute Little Beaver Is Actually A Euphemism For Your Dirty Vagina
Well, that’s one way to sell intimate wipes.
Playtex is hawking these new genital wipes for “before and after” activities involving your genitalia, whatever those might be. We have no idea. But we do know the feminine hygiene industry has a long and sordid history of shaming women into buying products to “sanitize” and perfume our lady business (oh, capitalism!), despite the fact any gyno will tell you the delicate pH balance of your vagina is best left alone.
But, at the very least, we can appreciate that Playtex’s ad campaign includes one marketed towards dudes in need of a clean “pecker.” Check it out after the jump. A dude’s sweaty junk is no picnic, either.
Playtex’s Fresh + Sexy wipes did two more suggestive ads which said “A polished knob always gets more turns” and “A clean peach always gets picked.” What a raunchy afternoon that must have been at the advertising agency.
Also, calm down, everybody! Gently wash your genitals with soap and water and you should be fine.
