Letters To Insufferable Members Of Society: Trojan Condoms

in Letters to Insufferable Members of Society, Sadist Vagina, What Is Wrong With You?

Dear Trojan Condoms,

What. Have. You. Done.

Those broads in your vibrator commercials you have yakking about how rad it is to not talk about vaginas only to talk about vaginas in the most diabetic way possible is shameful.

Do you think your target market is a fundamentalist community, or perhaps the girl from Virgin Diaries who thinks kissing is mostly biting the lips off of gay men?

Is it supposed to make them actually want to buy a vibrator? If that’s what you’re aiming for, I want to be totally up front with you–your ad campaign makes me want to beat myself in the crotch with a sack of weasels. It would be more useful and considerably more fun, based solely on your terrifically shitty ad campaign.

Issue 1: “That little personal massager that goes on the tip of your finger? It’s so cute!”
Fuck You: You know that when women say “it’s so cute!” in response to something of a phallic nature, we generally mean, “Oh sweet Jesus that’s pathetic. It’s gonna be a pity fuck kinda day, isn’t it?”

Issue 2: “It’s super discreet. Here, I bought one for a friend, AND I HAVE IT RIGHT HERE.”
Fuck You: 1) Just Friday night I found popcorn in my bra at 2 AM. If I can’t find popcorn in my shirt, I don’t need to be finding a twat tickler in my tic-tacs. 2) If I were to buy a vibrator for a friend, I would not allow many people, if any, to handle it. That’s how you get the HIV.

Issue 3: “Personal Massager.”
Fuck You: Personal Massager is the term our mothers and grandmothers used when they bought vibrators from Harriet Carter that were photographed on women’s necks, like we didn’t fucking know where that lavender-colored rocket was gonna go.

Issue 4: “Is that the one that is so good, it’ll blow your hair back?”
Fuck You: If you’re advertising discreet, and then show women walking around with the most jacked weaves possible so everyone knows you just shoved your hands in your vag, THEN YOU ARE REFUTING YOUR OWN CLAIMS AND CONVINCING PEOPLE NOT TO BUY THEM. “Hey, this pill will cure your Herpes, but will tattoo your face with “HERP A DERP” for all time.”

She shares all my rage.

Shit is absurd.

Your other commercials are brilliant. They are entertaining, they are funny, they make you want to buy lube even if all you’ll use it for is for light-speed spudguns.

Your vibrator commercials deny the idea that women have any cognitive ability above a tween level, much less an idea about how to seek information about sex and pleasure. That clusterfuck of faux-dickery you call a commercial is abusing every sensibility I have as a human, a woman, and as someone with a fucking brain. The entire campaign is as patronizing as the phrase, “have a happy period.”

Try again.

Love From,

Noa D. Gavin

Jesus FUCK I hate those commercials. Am I way off here? Are they reaching a real demographic that I am aware of? Are there other products that are insulting to women that I don’t know about?

I’m personally insulted by all the ‘low fat dessert’ commericals.
Fuck you, if I want to have dessert I want all the unhealthy goodness to remind me why they should be considered ‘treats’.
Or the chocolate commericals that declare how many calories, or sodium content, or how many monks died churning the butter…
information I don’t want to think about licking the melted goodness off my fingers, thanks.

It can happen. I had a recent checkup, including ultrasound of the heart and stress tests and I lived most of 4 decades on beer, beam, honky tonk food, and greasy enchiladas and some other things I might have done I think the statue of limitations is up but I won’t say on the web. The ultrasound tech was bullshitting with me while he was doing the exam and I asked how the old heart and liver looked and he said “Surprisingly good. Dammit, I shouldn’t have said that, I don’t mean to encourage you.” :-)

I would rather die at Sam’s with a rib in each hand than in an old folks home with rabbit food in front of me.

How about the Michelob Ultra commercials? Only 64 calories per 12 oz. bottle!! If you’re that committed to counting calories, maybe you should lose the beer and do vodka & cranberry juice. Whoever thought of Michelob Ultra needs a foot in their ass.

iampisspot December 5, 2011 at 3:34 am

I live in Belgium, where sex is socially acceptable and there is no need to advertise vibrators (especially in such an obnoxiously indiscretely discreet way), so I had to Google this.
Then I threw up in my mouth a little.

Although I will say that it still doesn’t trump when Always started doodling in my fucking maxipads.

I started using a Divacup after that bullshit.

Teresa December 5, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Diva cups are the way to go. I am not sure what company it is, Tampax, Always, or Hole-Plugs Ltd, but there is one in Canada making disposable versions of the Diva Cup. That’s not the fucking point!

Cyprium December 5, 2011 at 1:38 pm

What is this Diva Cup to which you refer? I must ask the great Google.

Cyprium December 5, 2011 at 1:44 pm

OMFG – I just ran screaming “NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO” around my house after the great Google told me what a Diva Cup was. All I can picture is getting the cup washed out, and then scrubbing my hands with scalding hot water to make sure I don’t have any blood living under my fingernails waiting to evolve into some PMS infused creature from the great vagoo.

I might mention here that I am a germaphobe, and while my vagoo is clean and healthy I do not desire to go sticking my hands into it while it is leaking clots of blood. And — what do you do with the stupid cup while you are sitting on the can? Do I walk with my panties around my ankles to the sink and wash it out right then and there? Is there a Diva Cup holder that I can place it in, assuming that I have a second Diva Cup waiting in the wings for vagoo insertion?

I will continue to kill the environment as I flush tampons.

Monica December 6, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I had a problem with a tampon a few months ago. My husband and I had drunk sex, and I forgot I was wearing it. Poor guy had to go spelunking in the morning. This is how I know he loves me.

Mayor Gia December 5, 2011 at 6:30 am

Well to be fair, those enzyte commercials (“Meet Bob..”) are just as annoying and talk around the subject just as much – I figured that that was just how they handled all sex topics for television.

As for the vibrator commercials, I think they’re trying to reach a slightly older demographic. College kids are getting their sex toys the normal way (back alley), but these commercials feature a grandma saying she has one too. Yay everyone! Grandma is having sex! Grandpa isn’t doing it for her though, so she uses a Trojan Vibrator! (Sorry, personal massager).

All the more reasons to support your local sex shop this Christmas. I can’t figure out why Trojan even bothers — it’s not like they’re selling you a Jack Rabbit or a Venus Butterfly or anything that would actually be cool. It’s a basic vibrator. Most of us who grew up NOT in the Dark Ages already have one and have moved on, thanks.

I actually posted about this same thing a few months ago. The whole “blow your hair back” thing? Totally fucking creepy. And why are they standing on the street in front of a mailbox just casually talking about dildos? If they can’t even say the WORD vibrator, I don’t think they would be randomly discussing it with their neighbors. Also, when they talk about the multiple “positions”? I actually said, out loud, “what is the thing going to fuck you doggie style?”. And then my toddler said “doggie style” and that was the end of my mommy license.

The commercials that drive me insane are the FALSELY advertised his and her lubes or whatever the fuck they’re called. Find me someone who enjoys getting their clit burned off, because that shit wasn’t funny. I found it hard to get in the mood when I was looking for the eye wash station that I don’t have to save my girly bits from 8th degree burns.

Danielle Geer (@deathbycupakes) December 5, 2011 at 10:11 am

I went on a tangent about the “blow your hair back” commercial a week or so ago… I find it almost embarrassing to watch. It’s like they take the whole “vaginas are icky-poo” thing to a whole new level. Like, “Have fun with your vagina, even though it’s icky-poo.” And F to the Y to the motherfucking I, I don’t want a discreet little orgasm that “blows my hair back.” I want to be climbing the walls, waking the neighbors, and beating a hole in the headboard with the rhythmic banging of my head. That’s right, Trojan… don’t blow my hair back, blow ME back.

Even if for some ungodly reason I decided to pleasure myself in public, I think I would be ashamed more about the fact that I was using the trojan shame vibe than the fact that I had just been caught thumping the litlle man in the boat. When I orgasm, it had better be right or I go all hulky and ragey about it.

Misty December 5, 2011 at 10:49 am

I have not seen this commercial, and now have no desire to do so. Then again, I don’t really know what it is they are advertising. A personal massager you say? Good, because my neck has been a little tense lately, so I could use something for that. I would never place anything unseemly and vibratey near my lady parts though, because I am a proper fucking lady, thank you very much. Y’all are a bunch of whores.

Remember the time I decided to become a Passion Parties consultant and spent over $300 on a box of vibrators to sell to sexually adventurous/frustrated women/whores but never threw one party or made one sale, so wound up with a gianormous crate of dildos in my bedroom filled with unopened sex toys?

Right now I’m using a fortune in rubber penises as a rack for my purses, coat, and other things I don’t feel like hanging up.

I think I’m going to write a book called “Alternative Uses For a Box of Dildos.” Suggestions?

Or does anybody want to buy a vibrator?

You’re right. That advert is patronising as hell. Condom and vibrator adverts should just be funny. That’s why I like Durex adverts, most of the time they get it right:


I visited Canada a few years ago, brought an Always pad during an emergency stop, put it on, looked down, saw the phrase ‘have a happy period’ stamped all over the damn thing, and actually brought it back to England with me to show my friends. I thought it was hysterical.

Then of course they brought it over to the UK, and now whenever I see that phrase I want to find the marketing genius who came up with that, roll up my hygiene essentials and shove them one at a time in unfortunate places.

Noa December 8, 2011 at 8:06 pm

In the US right now, Tampax and Always are engaged in a fantastically passive aggressive ad campaign shitting all over each other trying to be the one who gets all the blood. It’s so sad to watch.

Becca December 5, 2011 at 5:12 pm

These ads are for MEN, because only a MAN would watch this commercial and think to himself “wow I gotta get one for the mrs/fiance/girlfriend/significant other.” Only a MAN would believe that this would actually give enough pleasure to blow back a woman’s hair permanently, and ONLY a MAN would gift this to a woman. Women KNOW better, unlike those skanky ho’s in the commercial. In fact no woman that’s actually had a REAL ORGASM would even consider bothering with that. So go ahead men, buy up the Trojan vibe… and kiss your sex life goodbye.

Like the Foo Fighters, I have another confession to make.

This commercial, while absolutely appalling, did appeal to me on some level.


A.) My local sex shop employees nothing but people I went to high school with. Who are usually always pregnant.

I don’t want to buy sex toys from someone I know… especially when they’re knocked up for the 8th time.

B.) It’s little hard to explain to your mother that you were brushing your teeth with an electric toothbrush in your bedroom.

At 3:00am.

When you don’t own an electric toothbrush.

Shows a bunch of guys playing war games, littering, and basically being douchebags. And it’s an actual, legit commercial that I just saw while watching Hoarders, or something educational.

Have you tried Dr. Pepper 10? I did, because I break the rules, and that shit is fucking disgusting. Dudes can have it.

I think it’s really cool that vibrators and lube are becoming more mainstream and that I can pick them up at Target right by my multi-vitamins and shampoo. One stop shopping for ALL your needs.

I support mainstreaming sex, but I don’t support shitty advertising.

I do, however, support Target.

your next video should be a dildo commercial.

I’m writing it down.

Honey, you are RIGHT ON. I, too, have wondered not only who in the hell they are trying to appeal to, but why in the hell they would spend money to put that kind of crap on television in the first place. Obviously, they have not even a clue about women. If they did, they would know that women pay big bucks for that kind of thing over drinks in the privacy of their own homes. Adult women, anyway, which MAY NOT BE their demographic. They are probably trying to appeal to teens.
I’ve suffered for years over the commercials with Bob, who has a sack full of pride……..ringing any bells? Again, I think they are targeting teens, and with that music? Two year olds. Pathetic.

If my teenage cousin came in today and asked me about vibrators, I would not recommend this.

I hate the women in these fucking commercials. Did the casting call ask for the most vapid and plastic looking bitches from ass fuck nowhere USA? Jesus at least use b movie broads. Also love the screen shot you included. The caption should read “Comgratulations you stupid bitch, you now get to fuck one dick from her until eternity! And to celebrate here is a magic bullet to remember the days when pleasur came in the form of vodka comas and one night stands. Your welcome”

I love how she says the full product name in the commercial. I often do this.

“Adrian, where’s the fucking Borden’s 2% Homogenized Milk?”
“Adrian, I need more Lipton’s Family Size Iced Tea Bags.”
“Adrian, we should go shopping for more KY Lubricating Jelly, Sensual Pleasures.”

These are the women that missed the cut on America’s Top Model and Cosmo isn’t taking their phone calls, so they’re reduced to late-night dildo, er, personal massager commercials. “At least I’m on TV, Mom!! Jane Seymour and Jennifer Aniston have embarrassing commercials and HBO/Cinemax bit-part boob-shots, too.”

Michy December 7, 2011 at 7:12 am

The Mate bought me one of those a while back. Turns out the reason their hair is all blown back is because they are so pissed off and frustrated after using it that they find themselves furiously driving like hell to return it.

Either that or they just all have super shitty hairstylists. Whatever.

I think anything that requires a watch battery will not be entirely pleasurable to use.

msjake December 8, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Don’t let your husband get his hands on it. He may misuse it and bad things may happen.
Not that I know first hand or anything – I’m just sayin’.

I will just let you know the lesson I learned –
they are for external use only.

Bill G. December 9, 2011 at 10:12 pm

Hey, why aren’t there ads like this geared toward men? Oh, that’s right, integration of the five-knuckle-shuffle into a liquor store ad is vexing for advertisers.

I can see it now: “Guys, are you between girlfriends right now? Is the wife out of town for a week and your nads need attention now? Well we’ve got the answer! Swing by Dave’s liquor store. We’re up to our asses in hard alcohol and have 350 brands of beer on premises. As a bonus, we’re right next to Bob’s Porn Emporium. It’s one stop shopping for those nights that you’ve just gotta jack your crank!!”

The best part is, you’re done in 15 minutes (or 30 minutes if the porn you rented is a bit lacking and you really have to search for a good fuck scene), so there’s plenty of time to keep drinking and pop in a good action movie or surf the internet.

I would love, at any point, to be up to my ass in booze. Any time, any day.

Bill G. December 9, 2011 at 10:59 pm

Noa, I was cruising around your threads and commenting on funny shit without really putting any thought into the possibility that a GUY commenting on vagina, Kotex, and “personal massager” discussions probably crosses a lot of boundaries and comes off pretty creepy. That wasn’t my intent here, at all.

Cyprium December 10, 2011 at 2:03 am

I, personally, think your point of view is funny as hell. Anyone that is shocked/surprised/offended by a male perspective this far into the thread is probably trolling the interwebs looking to use their rightious indignation on some unsuspecting victim of the funny blogs.

Noa December 19, 2011 at 1:00 am

Fuck that politically correct bullshit. I want to hear ALL OPINIONS. I am a very welcoming asshole.
