Do cocktail weenies sell perfume?

Gals, this one's for you.
And guys, cover your eyes.
Do not click on the following link if you have a weak constitution or prefer to leave things to the imagination. Oh, and hide the children. Supposedly this is the first big brand advertisement featuring male full frontal nudity.

Now the question du jour - does seeing a winkie make you want to buy this cologne? Or is it perfume?

...Perhaps it should be called Yves Saint Laurent Smegma7

Ladies - we want you opinion - is this lad 'au naturel' tempting you to rush out and buy YSL's latest? We know that women buy at least 70% of all male perfumes out there - we have wondered why male perfume ads haven't been blatantly aimed at the buyers before. The other 30% of this particular brand will probably be bought by gay men.

The ad will begin running October 24th and continue this fall.

    I'm sorry but that is just PLAIN GROSS! And no that perfume/cologne would NEVER SELL. I mean, what's wrong with you filthy animals?! You guys out there have NO HUMANITY. Please keep it CLEAN or else what WILL THIS SOCIETY BECOME?? Anyways, When I saw that add..I was bluntly disgusted, and NO DO NOT PUT THAT ADD IN A MAGAZINE.

    an advert, singular is spelled "ad" not add, which is "adding" in short form.

    I spell like shite myself but that is my biggest pet peeve.

    also, I dont think weenies are gross, which is a good thing for my boyfriend. ;-)

    crap - I've been spelling it wrong for years then.....

    as far as the weenie is concerned - we show a lot of female nudity in ads, it's only fair to give the girls (and the gay men) something to look at too.

    Sorry, but no. Weenies don't sell perfume to me. The ad is just more exploiting of an individual. Where's the line for selling? Leave more to the imagination and I'm sure that you would see more of a positive response.
    Clitche: you catch more flies with honey.
    This applies to women and their shopping.
    Nothing is sacred anymore. Come on; how desparate or how far do we really need to push those lines. People are going to shop regardless of the ad. I know I do.

    The weener is the most important part.

    We clicked on the "male full frontal nudity" link...
    We replied to the picture...
    These reactions are what sells.
    ...and if buying this perfume encourages male full frontal nudity I'm doing it.

    is there ever a line for selling in any perfume ad?

    They are always all image. Like Kate Moss in short bobbed hair or want to look like that? Buy Chanels mademoiselle.
    Like buff men swimming in Herb Ritz style photographs or want to be one of those buff fellars? Buy Davidoff.

    ;-)

    most of you suck so much ass its amazing! if only you could see that 1:the nudie pic is a visual similie expressing the ultimate raw masculine nature of the perfume and 2:(most importantly) this is not the first time M7 has been available, its a re-launch. in the original ad campaign (decades ago,) mr. saint laurent himself posed nude for black and white pictures closely resembling this one. this was long before he went looney and while he had the body of sexy young man. this pic is in a way in honor of yves, a brilliant man who broke the worlds virginity many, many times.

    It's a famous shot, but you're right - not a pic for a campaign (the M7 press release would have mentioned it if it was relevant, don't you think?) and b: Theres no full fontal nudity, you see a nekid man, but no weener. ;)
