Spanking and BDSM in TV commercials
Television advertisements (or commercials) have been promoting products and services of every description since the 1950s. Looking back over the past six decades, television commercials also serve as a social barometer which reveals the cultural and economic climate of the times.
In recent years, advertising agencies have responded to changes in attitudes toward sexuality and alternate lifestyles by introducing increasingly risque elements that would have been unthinkable in earlier times. One of the current novelties in advertising is portraying kinky fetishes -- presented in a humorous and often mocking way -- such as erotic spanking, bondage, and S&M.
Public service announcements
A public service announcement (or PSA) is a non-profit advertisement used to promote awareness of social issues such as public health, safety, education, as well as various government services and community organizations.
