Did you take that photo on the streets of Paris?? I seem to remember similiar type ads all over the place. Their advertising would make most Americans blush.
I got if off cyclingnews website.Dave Hickey

It was in Luxembourg. There is a woman calling herself " A Podium Girl Gone Bad". She writes a Tour Diary.

was posted somewhere in this country, what do you think the public/media would do? Every feminist would be up in arms along with the Christian right. Awhile back, a guy in the office had just returned from Brazil, and had a post card of a woman wearing a thong bathing suit on his desk. A woman in the offcie complained, and he had to remove it.

I wish we had the attitudes of the Europeans, along with their cycling culture.

I agree, I don't think you'd see that picture in the US. I travel to caribbean a lot on business and topless bathing suits are the norm, people don't stare and drool, it's just accepted.

who really cares about the values of a country ....Spirito

where nursing mothers are uncomfortable to feed their newborns even with close family friends and relatives.

americans are so lame, hypocritical and backward with most of their attitudes. a country where TV fuzzy's nude bits and edits swearing also happens to have the highest rate of guns per capita, highest rate of prisoners, and highest rate recreational drug use of any western country. yet they are "puritanical" and a god sensored nation - go figure.

women here get a raw deal and are constantly pressured with sexist images and values - but they also buy a roll of lipstick every minute and well as dig their own graves ethically with plastic surgery ad nauseum. slay your own dragons.

if ever ive been to a place where a nation is still in its infancy maturity wise its the US of A.

swung to far the other way and an adjustment is due and probably on the way. One big problem is no one tells the zealots to shut up and sit down. I would think 99% of the U.S. population would think that picture is amusing. A few reactionaries would scream and down it would come.
i dont know bout 99 percent being pro the picishmael

I know there are a lot of gealous wives and girlfriends who dont want their man oggling anything, even if its just made of cardboard. I could look at that pic for awhile. Where's the saddle cam when you really want it?

I could deal with ads like this all the time.Leisure

It's outright sexy without being crass. American ads tend to aim for just the opposite (as in outright crass without being sexy, if I need to spell it out). Well, at least wherever men are expected to see them. Open a Cosmo though and you'll find a pleasantly different story. I would suggest more American women appreciate seeing ads that flaunt the graces of the human form than most of us American males are lead to believe. They just don't take too well to us males seeing the same things. ;-p
