Yep, there really is nothing like roman numeral five. No other number compares, not even other roman numerals.

(I haven't the slightest idea what this thread is really about)

This could be a funny thread.

I knew exactly what zig would reply, or rather, the spirit in which he'd reply! ha ha.

V--It's fun. It's also serious.

okay just saw the ads on youtube. Hmmm. Not for me, but I think this is aimed a young woman of a different generation. They are sorta funny.

It's a Summer's Eve commercial. V stands for vagina.

The most powerful thing on earth really is a line in the commercial

Well, zig isn't such a prophet after all, ha ha.

I was watching tv with my 23 year old daughter, prime time mind you, and this came on. My daughter thought it was hilarious! I'm remembering the times when I was young and they started doing feminine care/product commercials and how embarrassed I was if anyone was watching with me. It's kinda goofy if it's just us watching, but I couldn't see this if we had folks over to watch a game or movie.

They still make Summer's Eve?? And yeah, I don't watch TV, so I was clueless. Thanks for explaining, Anne Lee.

By the way, mine isn't that powerful, and I like it that way. ;)

OMG!! And I thought "V" was a sci-fi tv show about flesh eating aliens that aired last season. Guess I'm wrong.... or am I?

Of course this is putting feminism back about 50 years. We'll have to start a new mantra - "I am more than my vagina, I am more than my vagina, I am more...."

Thankfully I haven't seen this commercial. How dreadful. Although, as someone mentioned, feminine products have been advertised for a long long time now. I can recall being 10 or 11, watching tv with mom and older sister when a tampon commercial came on and I asked "what's a tampon?" Sister burst out laughing and left the room leaving mom to delicately answer the question.

Ooo! I wouldn't say that to just anyone! (Hope it was fun...)

And of course Vulva is actually the correct word for a woman's genital area. It then includes the clitoral structure, which is the locus of sexual sensation. Vaginas are nice too, but the focus on our "Va-Jay-Jay's" (my fav slang for vagina) excludes the majority of the fun places. I'm just sayin'.

Well if the focus is on what a woman is *TO OTHERS* (her ability to inspire men, her ability to procreate - and look at the commercial that *IS* the focus. You'll notice a woman's own sexual pleasure is not even mentioned - not even the focus of even her own sex organs I guess!) ... then yea, "hail to the V".

It would be like a "hail to the P" commercial that goes: "it provides sperm that enables women to get pregnant. It can be used as something that gives women sexual pleasure .... hail to the P!" (maybe if hetrosexual women who objectified men ran the ad agencies).

The only problem with this is, men WANT to be objectified!;):D

I just hate the notion propagated by these ads that women's vajayjays are somehow dirty, and have to be cleansed with a product from the drug store. My husband's middle school health teacher told the class that a woman's vagina is the cleanest part of her body. And I believe it!

I hate all of the commercials that inferr that your vagina isn't clean without using their products. Any gynecologist will tell you mild soap and water is all that is necessary. Back in my Mother's day it was normal for women to douche several times a week so that they would be "clean". :confused:

Perhaps someone should suggest that to the makers of viagra...

I know that douching used to be a common method of birth control back in the early part of the 20th century. Once that was no longer an effective marketing ploy, they had to come up with something.

...Or when you're watching tv with your pre-teen/tween grandsons. Oh, joy.
