I'm getting up there in years, and I really can't say I'm too pleased when forced to imagine people my age having sex — my own self least of all – so you can probably imagine my feelings about the 30,000 Viagra commercials — featuring people even older than me – I'm forced to watch any time I turn on the television.
Thank God, some heroic congressperson is finally introducing some "No Wrinkly Balls in My Thoughts" legislation onto the floor of Congress…
Last month, Democratic Rep. Jim Moran introduced the "Families for ED Advertising Decency Act," which prevents erectile dysfunction and male enhancement ads from appearing on radio and television between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
"This [the advertisements] is an intrusion into our daily lives that I believe has become inappropriate." Moran said in an interview with CNN. "There is a saturation of the television airwaves with these E.D. ads, and they have gotten more pervasive, more blunt, and less subtle."
I can't really say I agree with Rep. Moran on the reasons for this bill. I don't think it's a matter of "decency" so much as good taste.
But whatever will remove from my mind the persistent, unwanted fantasy of salt-and-pepper-haired men with fake teeth and impossibly large chins grinding away on top of their dissatisfied wives is alright with me.
