I've seen it on during the day. My mom just had surgery and I was over at her house taking care of her one day when it came on. I'm not sure an exact time but it was between 10am and 4pm.

Quoting Fordprefect:

I think they only play it at night. I have watched things I've recorded and had to fast forward through it. I don't want to have to explain it.

I'm very open with my kids about the differences between male and female sex organs. It's half the battle when it comes time to have the puberty and sex talk. I think it's cute, my boys would probably laugh their butts off. I've only seen it in cafemom though, not cable yet.

Oh, man. Yeah that's too early.

I didn't really care. Boys have balls. If I have to explain that to my boy then I will. I have seen far worse on TV.

I don't like it but I wouldn't try to get it banned or anything. I've only actually seen it once and it was after 9pm

If my son asked "how are they doing that?" I would simply explain it. It wouldn't be that hard.

When you make something a big deal THEN it becomes a big deal. There are commercials on all the time of half-dressed women so why is this what we complain about?

I agree! I was stuck the first time I saw it. How are jingling balls NOT inappropriate?? It makes it even worse that is for a family oriented store...

I also want to admit that if they were women with bells on their nipples, it would be equally inappropriate.

Just my opinion :-)
