Now, showing a naked ass on TV in America is a big deal, a huge deal. You can only do it late at night, to protect the children. However, there is one loophole - baby asses. In damn near every commercial for diapers or baby-ass related products, we'll see a baby ass. Even to the point that we can see a naked baby running around, if shot from behind.

What I'm curious about is, can you only show these things in baby commercials? If you had a commercial about, say, high-definition televisions could you still have a naked baby ass? What if your commercial for a new sports car featured a large number of baby asses gyrating to a techno beat? Would that be acceptable as long as they're all under two years old?

I don't think naked babies are used in marketing to be pornographic. They're an image of innocence and cleanliness that even looks good to the psycho American puritans.

I've wondered about that myself. Personally, the part that baffles me is that the baby's asses aren't constantly covered in shit. I mean, have you ever SEEN a baby's ass? Shit comes out of it by the truckload! Is it only offensive to show shit & not asses? If we're going to address the underlying pedophilia in our society, we might as well throw a bone to the coprophiles out there.

Strange thing is that if you're watching a cartoon over here after 10pm, the last 3 commercials are pornographic. Boobs, pussy, you name it you see it.

And the most annoying thing about those commercials isn't the nudity, oh no most definatly not, but the volume is a lot louder than the other commercials and the show you're watching.

Watching Friends last night, turned up the volume. And then the commercial... nothing special, but the last commercials OOOH BABY, TAKE ME NOW, CALL 0906-0678, UH OH *sigh sigh* YES BABY.

pedophiles must have the time of their lives, seeing those commercials all day.

that's what I thought the other day, while seeing tons of baby bums in every colour possible.

It bothers me too. Everytime I see a naked baby's bumbum on TV I think of all the pedophiles. Although it seems quite innocent and stuff but it's sort of disturbing. I once saw an ad where one little girly's arse was showing meanwhile she was DRESSED. That was sick.
And imagine your momma would get money for your bum on TV. Eeek!

Nudity generally comes here after 10pm too, I think. There's a warning. But it's still all pretty useless. What kids sleep at 10pm nowadays? It should be a matter of parents watching their children when they watch tv so "late".
Whereas you can't do anything against pedophiles, really. Ban babybums?

Yeah,I suppose it is rather worrying if u consider paedophilia! In this country,there is even an advert for toilet paper that shows adult arses(but no shit,thankfully!).The slogan of the advert is "Love Your Bum" lol. It isn't meant to be rude,and I don't find it offensive at all,but it is quite surprising that an advert like that can be aired at any time of day,considering that there are so many rules about exposure of body parts/nudity on TV.Hmmm....thought-provoking.
