    I find this ad (posted poster-sized at a local mall near work) to be borderline pedophilia:



    Am I being oversensitive to be weirded out by that?

    EDIT: part of my being disturbed is that the ad is targeting 15 year olds (at the low end). and I'm old enough to find the thought of marketing push-up bras to 15 year olds disturbing. Plus, having a poster-sized ad in the middle of the mall seems a little pornographic to me. I guess I'd feel the similarly about a full-sized A&F boy ad in the food court, too. Maybe it's just the tackiness.

    I have no idea... I just find the image to be disturbing, especially since it's marketing to teens.

    not really, what i'm trying to say is that a certain section of the male population is going to look at girls and just see them as a sexual object. doesn't matter if you're 14 or 40, or if you're wearing baggy sweats or booty shorts. there are things you can do to get less attention, but it really doesn't feel worth it to plan your life around random creepers.

    Basically this is what I'm getting at.

    I tried to clarify above a bit above. Maybe it's just the carefully selected image and the teen age group it's targeted at. Everything about the image carefully suggests youth... fresh-faced light make-up, flowers, trees, open windows on a spring day. There are none of the trappings of adulthood, making it easy for a teenage girl to project herself into the role... which is a hyper-sexualized one, nonetheless. Maybe it just strikes me as discordant in that respect.

    Anyway, as a middle-aged gay man, I'm not in the target market for the ad in any respect. I just found it disturbing on some level and was trying to figure out why.

    Aerie explicitly targets the 15-21 age group.

    UPDATE: after googling around a bit (only this forum could make me google for lingerie), I think it's the combination of the appearance of no make-up, the non-hair-do, and the pose all suggesting a lack of maturity. Other ads seem to hint at sophistication and knowingness on the part of the women. Most feature more visible make-up, expensive jewelry, elaborate hair-dos, provocative poses and/or high end settings. I couldn't find a single one that hit all the notes of the Aerie ad. So... that's enough explanation for me, even if it doesn't skeeve others out.

    Looks like any other lingerie ad to me: attractive twentysomething model in her underwear bathed in sunlight and surrounded in flowers and girly crap like that. Yes the image carefully suggests youth. It very deliberately suggests youth. Does that mean it's targeted at teenagers? Yes and no: it's targeted to any female from the pubescent to menopausal.

    The idea of youth sells products to women better than any other marketing strategy. It's directed just as much at a 37-year-old still trying to look and feel physically/sexually attractive as it is a 14-year-old who's just beginning to understand her own sexuality.


    Why do teenage girls sometimes dress 'inappropriately'? They haven't fully grasped the social cues that their clothing exude. Appearing 'slutty' at that age is, in my mind, an exercise in experiential learning.
