i normally read Jane and Nylon magazine...Jane to fulfill my fashion/beauty needs and Nylon for kickass photography and cool things from around the world. i've recently noticed an ad, for the clothing company diesel. it featured a girl, who look like she was a doll, and she was a holding a glass of urine. it said, "Stay Young! Drink Urine!" then something to the affect that she found the fountain of youth in her urine, and her name/birthday, which was sometime in the 1800's. I thought it was pretty funny...the model scared me though in her looks.

My mom recently went shopping, and bought me two teen girl magazines (teen vogue, cosmogirl), which, i decided to read although i never buy them anymore for myself.

in teen vogue, there were two diesel ads, one after another that struck me as weird and confusingly odd.

there is a guy and a girl, in the same doll like makeup, and it says,

Save Yourself /
Don't Have Sex

"We are 110-year-old virgins and proud of it.
By keeping our juices to ourselves, we've prevented aging.
Wouldn't you choose everlasting beauty of 9 seconds of sticky passion?"

James & Agnes Lillywhite, born 1891.

different models, same pose, same look.

Save Yourself/
Don't Have Sex

"Sex is over-rated and it can lead to old age quicker.
We recommend you keep your juices to yourself. An orgasm only
lasts for seconds, but beauty can survive forever."

Rebecca & Simon Beasley, born 1880

-------------------------
have you seen these? what are your feelings? i strongly doubt that these are correct statements. should someone write to the company and ask to give correct information?

um..the Catholic Pope is a virgin and look at him. I find their advertising statements to be extremeley false and rather alarmed that they're using these slogans which people are going to see. Many nuns, priests, etc practice abstinence and I don't find them running around hundreds of years old. If that is Diesel's way of trying to promote abstinence, they are going about it in a completely false way that is nothing more than deceiving impressionable minds. It really makes me think that their advertising department needs some serious reconsiderations.

It's a joke, but not everyone's going to take it that way.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Diesel ads here have a girl humping a guy's leg on the dance floor. So I don't think they're going for a sex-negative approach. It's more of a "people who don't have sex are dorks" approach.

nah...that's not the one...

it's like a girl and a boy standing next to eachother leaning towards eachother bending a leg and putting their hand on their personal leg.
