Summer’s Eve pulled two of their racist douche commercials offline after an outpouring of complaints over their depictions of black and Latina women.

Today’s Lady News: Ad Agency “Surprised” Women Don’t Like Those Summer’s Eve Douche Commercials

The ad agency that made Summer’s Eve’s offensive new “Hail To The V” douche commercials — starring a black vagina who talks about her hair and says “you best be headed to the store,” as well as a Latina vagina who says “Aye yi yi!” — is surprised you think those ads are racist.

A Douche With A Douche

The dudes over at Slacktory used Photoshop to remove the iPhones from people’s self-portraits and replaced them with a variety of random objects. In this case, this guy’s cellphone was ‘shopped out and replaced with a lovely package of Summer’s Eve. If the douche fits… (Warning, the link isn’t entirely SFW.) [Slacktory]…

Douching Is All About “Empowerment,” Says Summer’s Eve PR

Want A Raise? Better Douche First!

Summer’s Eve, the brand of vaginal douche that apparently still exists, has a very, um, compelling advertisement in the latest issue of Women’s Day. Made to look like a piece of editorial content, the advertisement offers advice to women who are preparing to ask for a raise at work. But before you go marching into…

We Need A New Insult For Spencer Pratt, Stat!

Pharmacy checkout clerks, whether they know it or not, have a reputation for being the most judgmental people on Earth. Everyone is neurotic about what the cashier must be thinking when they slip a box of Durex condoms on the counter.

Walmart Sprays Summer’s Eve

If you thought douching with Lysol was hard on your ladyparts, take a gander at what Walmart suggest you use: a pressure cleaner. Talk about rode hard and put away wet!

Flashback: Lysol Is Not For Your Ladybits

Did you know Lysol used to advertise itself as appropriate for feminine hygiene? “A man marries a woman because he loves her,” the copy for this vintage ad reads. “Instead of blaming him if married love begins to cool, she should question herself.” According to this retro-minded public service message, a woman should “safeguard her…
