The article starts out making a certain amount of sense, even if it is disappointing to have to admit, then loses all credibility later as it says "the models' buttocks resemble those of adolescents and not those of real women blah blah blah",... bullshiat. They resemble the buttocks of shapely women who are physically fit. Not fat-ass nasty biatches who don't take care of themselves then feel like shiat when they see a chick with a nice ass.

I don't know ... somehow, that doesn't sound like a very good name for underwear.
2003-10-08 08:12:03 PM  
Her butt seems a bit droopy to me...

/would still hit it without even thinking
2003-10-08 08:12:34 PM  
Wow, that was like so... stupid.
2003-10-08 08:15:04 PM  
I thought the French were down with the whole nudity thing...It was pretty sweet that they included a pic.
2003-10-08 08:15:12 PM  
You know why these ads bother people in France so much, don't you?

Think about it ... They live in a country where people don't find it necessary to bathe very often ... Can you imagine the mental "smell" these ads must conjure up in their minds?
2003-10-08 08:15:22 PM  
French surrender....hahaha, it's not tired and unoriginal at all!
2003-10-08 08:16:54 PM  
Ya cheese eat'in surrender monkies!
2003-10-08 08:20:15 PM  
Love the caption: "...a buttock too far."
2003-10-08 08:21:18 PM  
My penis weaps.
2003-10-08 08:21:24 PM  

On a more serious note, I am surprised that this bothers the French. Maybe they don't realize how American being a prude is. Someone ought to tell them.
2003-10-08 08:22:19 PM  
Fark Me To Tears, you'd think less clothes would allow the BO to air away.
2003-10-08 08:23:51 PM  
waz:You sir are an idiot!
No offence, but that is not a saggy ass.
2003-10-08 08:24:26 PM  
It's not that bad. They should encourage.
2003-10-08 08:28:43 PM  
This France surrenders is getting stupid, if it weren't for the french there would be no US.
2003-10-08 08:29:02 PM  
That is a truely great ass. Wins the ass of the day award.
2003-10-08 08:30:29 PM  
The French need a new Napoleon to torture and kill thousands and subjugate Western Europe. Then they'd get their street cred back.
2003-10-08 08:31:09 PM  
What?? That's barely racy. Give me a break.

Or maybe I'm just jaded.
2003-10-08 08:32:01 PM  
I've seen G-strings burried further then that..
2003-10-08 08:35:16 PM  
2003-10-08 08:39:40 PM  

My penis weaps.

Might want to get that checked out...

That pic is not the ad, just a representative g-string ass shot.

Anyone have the ad in question?

Not that I think you can ever get too many representative g-string ass shots.
2003-10-08 08:42:30 PM  
I concur with Lipspinach. Droopy or saggy it is not (take your pick).

Anyhow, what better way is there to advertise a thong? You need to see how it looks from the back, right?
2003-10-08 08:42:55 PM  
I just got back from France this past weekend and those ads were everywhere. moi j'aime bien.
2003-10-08 08:44:07 PM  
That pic is not the ad, just a representative g-string ass shot.

How do you know this?
2003-10-08 08:45:20 PM  
I didn't see that pic there. I saw the one with the pole dancers, as well as another with three women, all wearing strings with different colors.
2003-10-08 08:46:59 PM  
The phrase "such as" in the caption of the photo indicates that it's just an example.
2003-10-08 08:48:11 PM  
There were words there? I didn't notice.
2003-10-08 08:50:05 PM  
...underwear manufacturer Triumph...

Now that's what I call factory air.
2003-10-08 09:02:08 PM  
Don't forget to get your "Love your body day" kit.

2003-10-08 09:03:42 PM  
"These models are beautiful by some criteria, but their buttocks are those of adolescents rather than of real women. Are women supposed to get a complex about that?"

well if the pic showed in the article is anything to go buy....I don't see anything adolescent abotu that ass. What kind of real women do they have over there?!
2003-10-08 09:06:21 PM  
I can't find any pictures of the billboards in question, only this one.
2003-10-08 09:10:06 PM  
Found the Sloggi French Site. You can see a small version of what I'm guessing is at least one of the ads in question there. Skip the into, NSFW, HTH, HAND.
2003-10-08 09:11:41 PM  
2003-10-08 09:18:29 PM  
My partner is French and I used to make fun of him for wearing underwear called "Sloggi" until I realized that they're quite high-class numbers in the EU and make the asses of both sexes look divine.

Anyway, boo to puritanical feminist bullshiat. It's natural to appreciate a fine ass; where it hangs is incidental.
2003-10-08 09:23:17 PM  
stfu bout french surrendering... with out the french we wouldnt have absinthe. and for all of those who don't even know what absinth.. shame on you. its better than gold
2003-10-08 09:29:00 PM  
"But nudity will always be used in adverts in France," he said.
"It's part of our culture."

And God bless 'em for it......

Also, that is a fine ass, that's not droop, that's muscle, we don't have that in America anymore.
2003-10-08 09:29:34 PM  

Yeah, because destroying your brain and liver kicks ass
2003-10-08 09:36:35 PM  
anyone else can't get into that sloggi site that BigG linked to?
2003-10-08 09:38:01 PM  
This France surrenders is getting stupid, if it weren't for the french there would be no US.

And without the US there'd be no more France. So we're even. Get over it. They don't owe us (well...2 wars vs. 1) and we don't owe them, so we are free to poke fun at them whenever it suits us.

"There are only two things I hate in this world: People who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the French."
2003-10-08 09:41:02 PM  
"In particular we are seeing a backlash among women against these type of ads," Mr Besnainou said in an interview.

Backlash... hehehehe.

BTW, I checked the site BigG linked... under femme, click string. I see more ass cheek than that at the beach, and I live in uptight America.
2003-10-08 09:47:31 PM  
veni vidi vhatever!
OK web sitem not anything sexier than many US lingerie shots.

The music sounds like it was designed for a porn film though.

And defending anything on fark is like asking your kid brother not to eat the candy you hid in your top left dresser drawer while your at camp for a week.

but on to important things. My kid has grown fond of Full House reruns on Nick @ Nite. I'm obviously reaping a Karma debt. Arrrrrgh!
2003-10-08 09:52:36 PM  
Sloggi ads are all over in Italy. It's great, I guess. Except it can be a bit embarrassing when you're on a school trip. They have pictures of women from the back in g-strings; some with only three women, some with more.
2003-10-08 09:52:42 PM  
Sex sells everything in France but G-strings, such as this one, may be a buttock too far.

How can buttocks like hers be too far? I think it's quite a nice pair of buttocks.
2003-10-08 10:14:01 PM  
When I was in France, about six, seven years ago during the world cup, I saw tons of topless and otherwise nude women on advertisements, everything from hair products to plays. Hell, I remember an ad for a play (on one of those bus poster thingies) that was a naked woman about to stab a naked man with a sword. She was naked from top to bottom, facing away from the camera. You couldn't see much of the guy. Which I guess is a good thing. Very erotic.

omegashade Everybody loves a good naked stabbing.
