Add Four Inches!

This is the spam I get:

“Add four inches!”

“Get hard!”

“Get harder!”

“More staying power!”

And I’m too tired to think of anything witty to say…

Thus I’m delighted to welcome guest poster Oscar Barrett – Take it away, Oscar!

The contrast between Viagra ads and Cialis ads is quite striking. Viagra portrays the solitary macho figure sailing his sailboat, pulling his horse trailer, riding his motorcycle or running through the woods. He is a rough and tough customer. With a take charge guy like this his doctor better not say no or ask embarrassing questions when this man asks for some Viagra or he just might deck him.

Cialis takes a completely different approach. They (the ads) portray a  sensitive man in his middle age but still desirable, and lively wife who needs some attention. They reassure us that his little problem “might be a question of blood flow” (not desire or god forbid virility). Lucky for him he gets a twofer- that same little pill treats that “blood flow” problem down there also might help that enlarged prostate too. What a deal! So remember, your wife is still cute even if your equipment is temporarily misfiring so go buy our drug and get busy.

**My question – So, Oscar, are you suggesting the company which makes Viagra is aiming their ads at unmarried men while the company making Cialis is hitting up married men?  Hmmmm.  Now I actually have to pay attention and see what these drug companies are suggesting.

    LOL Gotta love ads and spam.

  2. Tim Dittmer says:

    It brings a tear to my eye, knowing they’re looking out for us.

  3. Isn’t it the Cialis ad that puts the man and woman in separate bathtubs holding hands. If that’s all they’re doing, why does he need the drug?

    Four inches, the path to nirvana, huh? Preying on people’s insecurities, what else is new? I guess targeting the female audience is a way to get their male partners to get the extra inches or drug. What’s it all about, Alfie?

    I normally receive my missives via email. Hilariously, this one sent my email provider’s servers into a frenzy, declaring it as spam, and quoting an impressive list of things that the post triggered in the analysis. :D So, naturally, I had to visit the website, to read the full post!

    Love your posts; keep up the good work. You might not see such on your blog’s stats, because I get the posts emailed, but I read almost every post! :) Thanks!

  6. Dear tiredpixel – toooo funny! I would love to read what your email provider had to say. Thanks for visiting! In person or not. ;)

  7. Yes, Diana, maybe they are targeting women. I hadn’t thought of that! :P

  8. Right, Stephanie – that’s one of the ads. He’s a sensitive man. Makes me think of Brendan Fraser – the most sensitive man in the world… What’s the name of that movie?

  9. Oh they are, Tim. Have your best interests at heart.

  10. I know, Amber. I actually got a recent spam message – the spammer yelled at me. Wow! Sucked!

  11. anny cook says:

    Speaking from “second hand” experience…neither works worth a damn…

  12. Facsinating… I don’t think they advertise these drugs here!

  13. Hi Ciara! Because where you live men don’t suffer from erectile dysfunction? Or they don’t need four more inches? ;)

    Thanks for publishing this dear but you kind of murdered this sentence, “They (the ads) portray a sensitive man in his middle age but still desirable, and lively wife who needs some attention.” What I wrote was, They portray a sensitive man
    with his middle age but still desirable and lively wife who needs some
    attention.” Makes more sense now, right? I want to let your audience know that I never, ever, ever have placed a comma before an “and” and I never will.

  15. hubby says:

    Stephanie- yes
    Julia- Bedazzled

  16. Is that so, hubby? You and your aversion to commas… Tsk. Tsk.

  17. Tom Stronach says:

    I wonder if they ever offer a ‘free’ promotion? just asking

    and,,,,,,,,, I agree with Oscar, ehat was it he said again

  18. Hey Tom – you and Oscar. I have no idea what he’s talking about. He says I must post a correction – does he mean a correction about those four inches? ;)

  19. Huh, I am always thrilled to learn that altho abset a penis, I can have a rock-hard erection. I figure that would be an amazing magic trick. Something I learned recently is that it is likely the Australian medical establishment considers the g-spot to be the female prostate gland. I say likely b/c who can research these things fully enough to say with certainty, and the books it was in were written from an Aussie POV.
    Ciao, Julia’s Husband.
