Animated genitalia in a Swedish anti-STDs ad.

I wasn't predisposed to like this, but it made me laugh and want to share it:

Did the South Park guys have a hand in this?

Wow. I thought I was good at scanning the Interwebs, but I would have missed this without your link.

Then again, maybe that proves that I am good at scanning the Interwebs.

Cumming soon with the "tear drop" was a bit forced, but I enjoyed it.

If it's a Swedish ad, why is it in English with what I assume are Swedish subtitles rather than the other way around?

Or with Arabic subtitles :)

Female genitalia need torso and legs to have a shape.

Otherwise it's a WTF is that thingy.

Too much variety. Position with torso and legs is what makes it have a stable identity.

Do women know this, is the question. Maybe it's a guy perception.

Certainly it has not informed feminist signage.

I deserve very little credit because it's linked at Drudge.

"Otherwise it's a WTF is that thingy."

The fact that male genitalia are much more easily understood as an independent little man explains a lot.

No one tell Anthony Weiner.

Would people even understand it if it looked like this? It looks like it could fly.

And here's a 3-D representation of a clitoris? It has a certain Gumbyesque zing.

I assume there is no anal sex in Sweden since an asshole is not represented.

I am Laslo.

Shouldn't the penises have one eye each?

Ralph L said...

Is it silly that I was offended by the "God damn?"

It's almost like complaining about the bad language in porn.

Laslo Spatula said...

The still shot is like Anthony Weiner and Huma in better days.

I am Laslo.

I'm still trying to figure out the relevance of the condom to the scene that showed two vaginas.

The parachuting dicks and vulvas were hilarious.

A disparate and dissociated characterization of human sex, gender, and reproduction. I wonder if this is why a large minority of girls and boys, women and men, believe that babies are delivered by stork at the time of viability.

I come to the Althouse site for edification, & now, I've got to take a cold shower & go to confession.

Thanks a bunch, guys.

Apparently, Iceland has a rollicking recreational sex culture. Hey, it's cold & dark a lot of the year, & how many geysers do you wanna stare at?

Needless to say, it has a very high incidence of STD infections. So much so that in Iceland, chlamydia is referred to as the "Reykjavik handshake".

OK that's funny.
And creative.

I did not think I was going to find that amusing, but I did. I just had my husband forward it to my son. (Receiving that from mom would trip his ick factor.)

Where was the hero? The rubber? Did I miss something?

Was it the parachutes?

Cute.

One of the best times I ever had at the movies was an Art Clokey Film Festival at the Rialto Theater in South Pasadena, ca. 1980. They played several 'Gumby' and 'Davey and Goliath' shorts, as well as the surrealistic 'Gumbasia', with its driving jazz soundtrack. Art appeared for a Q & A. Nice man, nice crowd. An altogether sweet few hours.

The fact that male genitalia are much more easily understood as an independent little man explains a lot.

It has a handy shape for animation but chiefly, and before that, has a standard shape so is recognizeable. Standard probably because it has to function and evolution takes over the design.

As for thinking with your penis, that's a bad metaphor, at least to a guy. It appears to a guy as thinking with his brain like everything else.

It's wiring that the guy doesn't understand but it's still his brain.

It can easily appear to a woman as thinking with his penis, but that's not the guys' experience.

About dealing with a picked off but still alive tick...I put it on sticky tape and leave it on my windowsill. I like to keep it around until I'm sure no bulls eye rash appears at the site of the bite. Ha, plus I like to see it DEAD.

This could be the trailer for a very successful video game.

I can't search for it now, but I remember seeing a very funny chart that showed the common name for STDs in (I think) the 19th and early 20th century, broken down by country. So in England it was "the French fever" and in Poland it was "the Czech curse" or whatever.
I think lots of places had France as the origin, which was funny.

Mommy, how are babies transmitted?

Hi. I’m one of the creatives/creators to this baby. Just want to say that it’s cool to see our (well, our clients’) little film finding its way overseas. Enjoyed some of the comments above
Regarding anal and oral: every decent film-maker knows that you have to leave a little something for the imagination…
Why it’s in English though the target audience is Swedish: well Sergeant, how many epic films (or trailers) have you seen lately with a Swedish cast or narrator? To honor the format, one needs to go all the way Plus, Swedish kids are damn good at English (except for the pronouncing…)
And Mrs. Althouse: you finding it at Drudge kind of made my morning; I’ve always joked (?) about my dream to become a speech writer in politics, an √©minence grise (we have a lot of governmental/public sector clients). This MAY be the beginning of my breakthrough ;) #westwing
Thanks, Henrik
