Playboy marketing youngsters? What do you think?

I recieved an email to this article. I found it interesting, and very disturbing. This has nothing to do with whether you think porn is o.k., but what do you feel about marketing a porn company or the porn industry to children? Do you agree that it sexualizes our kids? Do you or would you allow your young child to have these things? Just wondering what you CM think.

  • I don't like Playboy on kid's clothing or "thongs" for little girls either. Yuck.

  • Thanks for the link. That really is disturbing. I think children are already too exposed to that stuff. Flip through the channels on tv...and all the shows that should be for tweens do have some sexual themes. It's scary! But if you turn on the news...you hear about rape...you look at billboards and you see commercials for perfume or phones or whatever and they use sex. "This will make you more attractive...and she'll want you...buy this phone!!" What about the car commercial, I forget what car...but she says, when you turn on your car...does it return the favor? I mean come on!!

  • Whats worse than them marketing it is the parents who will buy this stuff for their kids. Disgusting on both counts.
