TV: K-Y’s Couple Confessional Commercials Lez Out
You’re familiar with the K-Y INTENSE commercials where a couple sits down to face the camera and talk about the mind-blowing sex they have with the help of a K-Y product. Up to now, they’ve all been straight couples, (although they took me by slight surprise by featuring an unexpectedly wide racial demographic).
I assumed that up to now we homosexuals weren’t featured because we don’t need any help having mind-meltingly amazing orgasms. As we all know, it’s perhaps the only stereotype about us that’s 100% founded in fact – gay people are uninhibited sexually-perfect hedonist love gods who need no help keeping things spicy.
Much to my dismay, K-Y has taken a slanderous stance with their new commercial featuring a lesbian couple – foully insinuating that a homosexual couple might actually need outside help in order to bring each other to mutual and multiple waves of soul-shattering sexual ecstasy.
Ok, so I’m not actually offended. I’m always pleased to see gay couples represented in the media. And sexual health for gays so often ends up being about AIDS; while a worthy subject for discussion, certainly, it’s nice to see discussion around the broader category of sexual well-being for LGBT people. I think gays too often buy in to their own positive stereotype, expecting amazing sex all the time with everyone.
As these ladies prove, sometimes we gays like to bring the sexy back, and shouldn’t be afraid to look for a little help to do it!
