Mainstream Advertising On Porn Websites

Mainstream Advertising On Porn Websites | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

It has long been a mystery to me why more mainstream products that are sold to porn-watching adults are afraid to advertise on porn websites. Porn advertising is dirt cheap, and so you’d think that any brand that’s not afraid to admit its customers also like porn would be all over the porn website world with huge ad campaigns. Whiskey and cigarette advertisers used to buy endless full-page ads in PlayBoy and Hustler back in the day; why don’t they now?

 

Thus I was both heartened and pleased to see that one of the online food-delivery startups has not only taken to porn site advertising, they’ve blogged in detail about why they did it and how well it worked:

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

I've always thought that if you're looking at adult content, you won't be alarmed by mainstream companies being there; conversely, if you aren't at adult sites, you won't know about it to be bothered.

If your product or services fits the demographic, why not?

This is what happens with most flyers and promotional pieces of paper that are handed out on the streets, put on windsheilds, etc. The fact that it's about selling sex makes me take pause...This appears to be one case where erotic images of women involved in sex work are actually adding value and humanizing the advertisements. Food for thought.
