The Sun: Page 3 — The Woman You’d Love Your Woman to Be Like

Last year, during July 2010 to be more specific, we analyzed Old Spice’s social media campaign – The Man You Could Smell Like – and it was a huge hit that attracted attention and praise, and left an ever lasting impression. Here’s one of the clips as a reminder:

I recently came across the following imitation of that campaign, designed for The Sun’s Page 3. The campaign is an exact copy of the Old Spice campaign with the only exception of having a woman  posing as the main attraction instead of the handsome hunk!

iPhone Porn Debate: Are You With or Against?

We’re bringing these videos to your iPhone, iPod Touch …. so that you can take them anywhere – your office, the bathroom, or the supply closet. Wherever you go, your porn goes with you…. people will be asking “Is that an iPod in your pocket or are you happy to see me?”

What kind of message is that? I mean seriously! Do we really want to help promote such a wide propagation of porn and nudity on such a large social media platform such as the iPhone?

iPhone Welcomes Porn

iPhone Welcomes Porn

In order to be as unbiased as possible regarding this sensitive (and dangerous) topic, I have prepared a list of pros and cons for the topic of mobile porn, especially that related to the iPhone iPorn!

The List of Cons:

  • Did the “If you’re not yet 18, leave the site now” ever work before? Why does Apple think it can really protect children from finding porn so easily on a iPhone when they were able to unlock satellite parental codes!
  • Isn’t the porn industry supposed to be based on privacy and discretion? Wouldn’t this promote sexual abuse at the workplace, in the streets, on public buses, in colleges and so on?
  • Is iPhone, in a way, promoting addiction to porn and objectifying women?
  • Guys, be prepared for some awkward moments if your female boss picks up your phone and sees that nude wallpaper!


The List of Pros:

  • With the economical downturns, the well-known concept of “sex sells” can help iPhone application developers make some money.
  • There are already so many porn sites out there accessible via the iPhone’s built-in browser, and each iPhone is hooked to the Web by default. So, why not an app?
  • As far as societies are concerned, it is okay for adults to browse for porn.
  • Higher market share for iPhone (yes, they might benefit largely from such a move).

Now that we have laid down the two sides of the debate, are you with or against?
