Lingerie Ads ‘Promote Incest’

Posted on November 17, 2011


New ads for the lingerie label the Lake & Stars are being criticized for their incestuous nature, reports The Cut.

The campaign feature a gray-haired woman and her 19-year-old daughter sitting on the floor together in their underwear; according to psychologist Dr. Nancy Irwin, the images are “highly suggestive”:

“They are clearly designed to titillate consumers; mostly men. The incestuous and lesbian suggestions, with the phallic images of cactus and logs, are juvenile at best … I’m disgusted, yet hardly surprised by this. Advertisers (particularly of undergarments) continuously push the envelope on good taste to simply get attention and drive sales.”

A storm in a D-cup if you ask us.
