MTA will allow sex toy ads on the subway
The MTA said on Thursday that they would allow ads for a sex toy company to appear in the subway one day after the images were deemed too racy for city straphangers.
The reversal came after accusations of unequal treatment when the company that handles MTA ads said the colorful images from luxury sex toy company Unbound violated policies about “indecent material.”
Advertisements for male enhancement pills and breast enhancement appear in subways.
“The MTA has always and will continue to ensure that our policies are applied evenly and fairly,” MTA spokesman Jon Weinstein said Thursday.
“We’re going to direct our advertising partner to work with the company toward a resolution that is agreeable to all parties and allows their ads on the system.”
Unbound used artists Laura Callaghan, Loveis Wise and Kristen Liu Wong to create stylish images of women with the accessories included.
The CEO of Unbound, Polly Rodriguez, sounded cautiously optimistic about the MTA’s change-of-heart concerning their ads.
“We’re looking forward to learning what this means for this campaign, and we haven’t yet heard what the terms of this will be,” she said.
“We want to make certain we’re not just putting a band-aid on this issue, but really making an effort to change the policies that resulted in this dispute in the first place.”
