“Gentlemans Me Time” ??

By FustyMusty - 3 August 2011 33

Am I alone in my irritation at ads being aired during prime time, well, constantly, on commercial FM  suggesting “Gentlemen should get a bit of me time”, to offer a quickie on the way home from work with the suggestion this fixes home tensions…

WTF?

What’s Your opinion?

Just wanted to post that I also listen to JJJ when I have a choice, but at work I do not (lest people think of me as one of those commercial radio droolers).

“Everyone will love your smooth cha-cha!” WTF?!? Are you going to show it off at your next dinner party??

Wow. The things you miss by not listening to commercial radio. Must be fun to explain to the kids what the ads are about…

We switched to JJJ after the smooth cha-cha ads started and my 8 year old son said he wanted a smooth cha-cha because it will help him to get more friends. The bonus is I don’t have to listen to lady gaga or rhianna or any of that crap anymore.

Never looked back, even if some of the music on JJJ is of questionable quality at least I don’t have to listen to songs about getting down at a party or giving blowjobs in toilets and then explain it to my kids anymore. You can shove 104.7 and all the other commercial radio stations up your jacksie.

Surely a bit of “me” time involves a box of tissues, an old Picture mag and some lubricant rather than a trip to a brothel?

Or are they offering to lend you a hand?

They’re not “brothels” Jim, at least I don’t think they’re allowed to say the word. They are relaxing and indulging destinations for men.

They make it sound like a spa with cocktails but when you get there it turns out that the masseuses only offer “special” appointments and the cocktail waitresses are also masseuses.

I bet some taxi drivers have some interesting stories to tell about language-challenged visitors asking to be taken to this exciting business in Mitchell or Fishwick!

Sounds like FustyMusty is getting a bit uptight. Maybe he should stop for some tension relief on the way home?

I haven’t listened to commercial radio for three years and commercial television for over two. Never missed it once I realised how little it contributes to my life.

There is an off switch you know

A legal and (presumably) licensed business has legally purchased airtime on a commercial radio station to advertise its services, and has done so in a way which abides by the commercial broadcast code of cojduct by not explicitly describing those services in a setting where children and prudes might be exposed to that message. Those people (not all of whom need be male) who are interested in those services then seek out that business.

I’m not seeing the problem here. Ads offering loans to people who have quite rightly been knocked back by banks annoy me, and I feel they are inappropriate, but I don’t whinge to the internet about it (well, I suppose I have done, now, but you started it dammit!)

No more irritating than being a male and having to listen to ads concerning the light bladder leakage problems of mothers and middle aged women. No more irritating than listening to Rhianna’s “music” describe sex acts at all times of day.

In short, you are not alone.

I don’t understand what this is… are there brothels advertising on prime time radio suggesting that men find their “me time” in the arms of a paid companion?

Some men are selfish, greedy and inconsiderate. At least the ads will flush them out of the woodwork.
