Vegetarianism, Sex and the Super Bowl

Vegetables Gone Wild! PETA’s put out an ad that’s too hot for the Super Bowl, at least according to NBC.

The ad itself is below, but check out the PETA site for related video clips, as well as the link to NBC’s complete list of concerns about the women in the video, which includes rubbing asparagus on a breast, licking eggplant, rubbing the pelvic area with a pumpkin, and “screwing herself with broccoli.”

I’m not such a huge supporter of PETA (I like some of their principles, but I also like bloody meat, and dispute their claim that vegetarians have better sex), but I feel for them on this act of censorship. Victoria’s Secret models are okay, but Victoria’s Secret-like models wielding vegetables aren’t? Anti-impotency drug promotion is okay, but a sexy ad with the same effect isn’t? Unhealthy fast food is okay, but vegetables aren’t? What a country! Not surprising, though, given the Janet Jackson fiasco five years ago, which made us the laughing-stock of the world for our Victorian attitudes related to sex. And vegetables, these days, in a way.

    I really don’t get what the fuss is all about, this was a brilliant ad.

    Totally agree with you, unhealhyt fast food is ok but healthy vege with heathly girls ain’t.

    Just goes to show all that is wrong with the world we live in and how Madoff managed to make off with $50 billion.

    How can you dispute the claim that vegetarians have better sex unless you’ve tried carnal acts while abstaining from meat?

    I have. I did the vegetarian thing for about a year.

    Anyway, I’d be interested in seeing the evidence, other than Pamela Anderson saying so. (Well, maybe Pamela can say so!)

    I don’t think it’s a meat/non-meat issue. Healthy living in general is what’s important in terms of a healthy sex life.

    But if you’ve got scientific evidence, I’d like to see it.
