finish prematurely with your girlfriend, not your workout.

Worst part is, some team approved of that ad and sent it for creation.

AT LEAST THE AD SHOWS "WHO" HE'S CHEATING WITH

Should have had a poster with three pictures: a woman, the gym, and a tax form. Beneath it put the slogan, "Don't cheat."

Same message. No backlash.

In before the fight starts over whether it's women or men who are more prone to cheating...

Oh so as long as your standing straight up it doesn't count ?

Typical woman logic
 
2012-03-22 12:35:45 AM
How bout this:

Your girlfriend

She needs a Reeboking
 
2012-03-22 12:36:36 AM
Obviously a man would only cheat if his girlfriend was neglecting him.

Unless you identify with being a neglectful girlfriend I don't see the problem...
 
2012-03-22 12:36:58 AM
Your girlfriend and your Reebok's, need to get pumped.

Fist your girlfriend, not the air after doing 100 sit-ups.

I can't say who's more prone to cheating per se, but after careful consideration and exhaustive examination of the local evidence I CAN with some authority say that women are more prone to be LYING THIEVING DECEITFUL SNEAKY UNDERHANDED NEVER-TO-BE-TRUSTED SHOULDA-BEEN-A-BLOWJOB SCUMSUCKING GOLD-DIGGING WHOREBAGS.

Cheat on your workout, and you might find your girlfriend cheating on you?

A possible slogan for female customers,

"suck in the bedroom, not in your workout"

Post YouTube videos of your girlfriend, not your workout.

Pay someone $180 a month to critique your girlfriend, not your workout.

Scale down your girlfriend, not your workout.

Compare times with your buddies on your girlfriend, not your workout.

Puke while doing your girlfriend, not your workout.

Sleep with whomever you want, just not through your workout.

Overexert yourself in the sack, not your workout.

Hope you're in the ad business. That's good.

The douche emanating off that ad is powerful.

I don't cheat on my workout so I can cheat on my girlfriend

/I keed!
 
2012-03-22 01:50:50 AM
I don't work out and I don't have a girlfriend - thus I can't cheat in any way.

/I sound fat

Someone should open a line of gyms where you can do both at the same time. After all, sex is a form of exercise.

Public opinion is irrelevant to the business model of a little fringe company that sets up affairs, very relevant to a huge company that sells basic consumer goods in mass quantities in a competitive market. It is kinda funny that stupid advertisements are what people who pay 150 bucks for shoes that cost 10 bucks to make choose to protest about.

Because even housewives know that 99% of the signups are men, and if they married a man who will take it up the ass on the internet then all they need is a strap-on to fix everything. It all works out in the end.

How do you like Crossfit? I looked into it but the price is astronomical, I could afford two different gym memberships, per month, at the price they wanted.

Its worth the price of 2 gym memberships. Why would 2 inferior gyms be more useful than one that you actually end up going to and getting better at stuff at? Bottom line is that its higher priced because a lot of these places have such high participation from the folks they have that they do not have room for more clients.

/ Im just glad they didnt use MY picture in the advertising. Can you imaging being this guy for the conversation when his girl sees this?
 
2012-03-22 06:01:15 AM
I have to cheat on my girlfriend in 22 minutes.
 
2012-03-22 06:03:03 AM
Or is it 26 minutes?

Sexual double standards, of course. Or, as women like to say, "But that's different!" (which is their unfailing knee-jerk response reflex whenever they're being called out on blatant hypocrisy). If you can stomach it, try to find any women's magazine that can go three straight issues without running an article giving readers tips on how to get away with cheating on men.
 
2012-03-22 07:31:43 AM
Missing workout definitely hinders progress. The other issue involves the cardio portion.

Reebok isn't a women's magazine. Ashley Madison (as much as they wish otherwise) and women's msgazines cater to a single gender for the most part.

Companies like Reebok need to cater to everyone. Insult half of your client base with a gender joke and you get in trouble.

It's really that simple. No nefarious "double standard" thinking needed.

Blow off your workout, not the well hung dude in the shower, and then when you're done act like he is the gay one for sticking his dick in your mouth, and then play it off like nothing happened and refuse to answer any of his calls, despite the fact that he actualy cares more about you than that biatch wife of yours and....um...yeah.....I mean, FOOTBALL! BEER! YEAH!

That's what you get when you value money over everything else in society: you get sociopaths who rise to decision-making positions and who don't understand why campaigns like this -- or the mere existence of a site like Ashley Madison, as another example -- are wrong.
