PORNO ADS

By
WILLIAM C. TROTT, United Press International

Women Against Pornography singled out Calvin Klein for sexism in an underwear ad featuring a nearly bare-breasted woman in a 'pose straight out of Penthouse' and also found a diaper commercial objectionable. WAP gave one of its 'Piggie' awards to a Huggies commercial showing babies in a beauty contest presents 'little girls in objectifying cheesecake poses which ignore the prevalence and seriousness of child molestation.'

WAP also accused Bijan cologne, shoemakers Bandolino and HipOppoTamus and Seruchi clothing of using near-pornography to sell their products. The group, however, did like some ads -- those by Toys To Grow On, The American Negro College Fund, Jockey For Her and American Express -- saying they showed women 'as they are and as they wish to be seen.'
