Oral Fixation?

Well it certainly catches the eye, non? An advert in France aimed at getting young people to quit their addiction to the filthy stuff has caused a public outcry because in pretty explicit terms it makes the link between smoking and oral sex. Some critics have also claimed the posters trivialise sexual abuse, as they depict an older man with teenagers in submissive positions.

Perez Hilton quoted the Head of the Non Smokers Rights Association in France as saying, 'We noticed that the traditional anti-smoking campaigns no longer got across amongst the youth. We thus had to use another way in order to raise awareness…We were surprised by the extent of the media buzz. But it's above all a message of public health that got across.'

We have to be honest with you, 'public health' is not the first thing that springs to mind...
