Random Thought of the Day: Diversity, Porn, Sex Toys & Banner Ads

So as You can see from my sidebar I now have an affiliate banner for Good Vibrations on there. Now Good vibrations gives you several options on which banner to use, since it made me think a little biI t thought  would post the thought process of why I picked the one I did starting with the runner ups.

I wanted a banner that said that men could use sex toys as well or at least a couple could. Since a male body is front in center here, it met this requirement.

Moving on this one was nice as it has a couple and it promotes diversity, as the couple is interracial; however the guy was too much in the background for me.

I was close to using this one. The guy is in the corner the screaming face expression drew my eye more to him so it balanced it out and the diversity in body image was lovely but in the end I chose…

This one. The reasons I like is it features both a male and a female, it meets the requirement of a couple enjoying toys as opposed to just a female. The male and female are more or less in equal focus and it proved some diversity since both members are dark skinned.

Banner chosen however, this little moment of decision making, made me think about the lack of ethnic and racial diversity in sexy land. The first thing that popped to my mind was the Fleshlight Girls line of toys. After reading the above you will probably notice something about the Fleshlight Girls, the overall lack of diversity. Where are the black porn star’s replicated lady bits? For that matter that question made me think how many black porn stars I could name. I may or may have not have typed “black porn stars” in to Google to answer that. Thinking about it some more Fleshlight did have at one point a mocha color for their Fleshlights (I have a mocha ultra tight), which they discontinued, making me thinking that dark skinned Fleshlight simply would not sell. Which in turn made me why exactly would not it sell. Is it that we perceived dark skin as less sexually desirable? Is socio-economics a factor are those most likely to buy such a Fleshlight of a lower economic status and thus less likely to have the money to buy? How about culture? Do differences between the sexual beliefs of Caucasian group compared to non- Caucasian groups factor in to all of this. All of the above is the most likely answer of course… now the question that much harder to answer is when will all of that change?

Anyway, that concludes my random thought for today.
