You Hold The Shaft While You Work The Balls

On the Playboy Morning Show, they have a segment called Nymphomercials, where they discuss infomercials that...well, let's just say they aren't wholesome family entertainment.  I heard about the segment at the time I first saw the commercial for the Shake Weight, a vibrating free weight filmed with sweaty, muscular, half naked men in intimate light and slow motion.  The first time I saw the guy in the commercial holding the shaft with both hands right beneath his chin then let out an orgasmic sigh of relief when he finished, I laughed out loud.

Commercials are about sex appeal.  There's a reason diet drink ads feature people who don't look like they need to diet.  The Kim Kardashian Shape Ups commercial during the Super Bowl was a riot.  "Oh, no, we weren't selling thirty seconds of softcore!  It was about shoes!"  Riiiiiiiiiight.

There's a new sexually suggestive workout aid called the Free Flexor.  (Sorry, LJ won't let me embed media here anymore, here's a clicky.)  Folks, I defy you to try making it through the ad without laughing once.  It is just so absurd.

Supposedly, we reach sexual maturity in our teens.  Doesn't mean much when the mental maturity isn't part of the package.
