A furore has erupted over the National Pharmacies’ advertisement for sex toys as gifts for Mother’s Day. The G-spot massagers and vibrators, amongst other sex aids, were featured in the chemist chains’ Mother’s Day catalogue. Mainstream media, including the Adelaide Advertiser, has quoted mums being ‘surprised’ by this advertising and a spokesperson from the Australian Family Association, Terri Kelleher, believing such advertising to be ‘irresponsible’ The Melbourne Herald Sun was even more outrage, with ‘X-rated Mother’s Day catalogue shocks shoppers’ as its headline.
Are you shocked? Or is this too trivial to even think about?
