This huge sexy Calvin Klein billboard covers most of a building in Manhattan and many observers are wondering “What IS the message here?” Could it be “Three guys are better than one?” or “Let’s have some group sex!” Does it make YOU want to buy Calvin Klein jeans?

    Skankish. There are a lot of talented designers in the world. I don’t need Calvin Klein.

    This has to be a new low, even for Manhattan. Where is the outcry against this porn. At the time when teen pregnancies is out of control, they put this up for all to see. American is finished. It’s no wonder Muslims call us the great satan and are constantly looking for ways to destroy us. The Southern Bible belt would never have a billboard like this.

    It makes me NOT want to buy Calvin Klein. This is pornography and should not be allowed.

    67-year-old Calvin is desperate to make himself seem relevant to a younger generation that’s more excited about his competition.

    It tells me that I’d never give my hard earned money to that perverted company and I hope his business goes bankrupt.

    Is there no group in all of NY by the name of “Citizens agains Smut” or some such name that will speak out against this filth. ??

    I agree. This ad has NOTHING to do with jeans.
    Its there to be provocative and make you look
    at the ad. That is the mindset. They don’t
    realize in the process they are containating
    people’s mind with these images. They are
    actually insulting the public. I hope Calvin
    Kelin goes out of business.

    JANET, W.T.F is with you lately, are you born again bible thumper or something? You keep provoking this crazy religious hate?
    This is a sexy ad and the 10 same psycho’s you have writing in obviously live under a rock below their trailers with their bibles. Watch out…satan’s gonna get cha!! keep living in fear people.
    But you live in LA and I can’t wait to have a word with you in public. NOT COOL to allow homophobic hate remarks on your site.
    Oh, and don’t worry folks, your not his customer, besides you couldn’t afford them.
    I would love to be face to face with dirt bag bisquit.

    Calvin is telling us his jeans are sexy…like that ad. And that’s why it’s in manhattan and not the southern bible belt. Besides there too busy in breeding and hating the world down there.
    The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    Your comment is moronic. This ad is sexist pornography & its displayed in a prominent public place. Do you have any children? Would you want your children staring at that? If you have a daughter, would you want your daughter in that position (looks like a gang bang)?

    I don’t care for this ad at all! I think it really steps over the decency boundaries in advertising. In fact, I think many commercials these days are just done in poor taste.

    It’s called “Free Speech” Styleguy.
    I guess the rest of us “prudes” don’t get free speech too. “not cool to allow homophobic hate remarks on your site…..” where is that hate? and what the hell has that have to do with any of the comments?

    StyleGuy: Go borrow a Bible (I’m sure you don’t have one) and read Romans chapter 1, verses 24 thru end. Jesus never said he hated homos, he said it was a sin that had to be repented of and forsaken, just as other multitude of sins. And, if you approve of this filth overlooking a city already up to its kazoo in porn, you need to take a long long look at your lifestyle. And, as to Bible thumpers, how can any thinking person, gay or straight, think it’s OK to have a billboard like this influencing young minds. That said, notice I have refrained from calling you a heathen, faggot, or any other hateful name. I will just pray for you. Oh, one last thing, have you ever thought that eternity lasts just a wee bit longer than life on this earth.

    Hahahahahahaha!!!!! It’s been a while since I last visited and this site just gets more and more hilarious!! The god squad who like to read about celebrity smut and gossip and then fume about it – not contradictory in the slightest. If you think that this is pornography you REALLY need to trawl the net more!

    This ad is totally stupid and is insulting to the consumer. I will not buy from stores like Calvin, Ambercrombie, D&G etc… because they advertise porn and not clothing. They just annoy the heck out of me for the chronic dumbness they shove down our throats when they advertise… it is NOT sexy. It is just stupid…

    Frankly – this ad could also be advertising thrift store clothing and you would not even know the difference because no one is dressed.
    Totally pathetic advertising campiagn. They should fire their art director and stylist.

    Do you remember back in the nineties when the company was investigated for child porn – because of adverts featuring fully clothed adult models. America repressed? Not in the slightest!

    If the sight of clothed people makes you empathise with the al-Quaeda mindset Celeste why don’t you just **** off over there? Your kind will love living under strict religious laws. Oh sweet delicious irony of life that fundamentalist muslims and fundamentalist christians have so much in common!

    Oh no! Please don’t start citing the bible 5.32! Have you ever read it properly? Full of crazy stuff about killing rape victims or selling them to their rapist; disobedient children to be killed by their parents; slavery, slavery, slavery; people with eye defects forbidden to approach the altar of god. It’s even the death penalty for wearing mixed fibre cloth, which is pretty bad news I guess for all you polyester wearing bible thumpers. Better buy yourself some Calvins!

    I’m not a religious fanatic in the least and even for me this kind of advertising is for the simple minded. It belongs in a condom ad. Hell, Calvin may as well show them sitting on a toilet or peeing on the side of a road. It is the same kind of mentality. Trash.

    @ Bu of 5:16 PM: That is exactly right, and everyone knows it, even some of the parents that have to turn a blind eye to their kids’ escapades,because they have to work late, or they are too drunk or drugged to care. Bill Clinton added fuel to the fire when he said “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”, and it was later proved that something else…..(well you know). Anyhoo, sex ads (I mean jeans ads) like this one will cause more rapes, unwanted pregnancies, and STD’s….this is only common sense. I hope NY is prepared with more rape crises centers, free health clinics, etc.

    No wonder our country’s going down, the morality is holding on by a thread. Nothing good comes out of pornography those of you who think there’s nothing wrong with it don’t realize that when you buy into it you’re opening the doors wide open for the demons to take over your life and sadly you’re dragging your innocent children down with you, ever read up on serial killers, child molesters, rapists they all had one thing in common – pornography – and as much as those people disgust me I believe it when they say they had no control no regard for human life. I don’t think Bob Crane and David Carradine could stop it either, they will get you too eventually if not you, your children in one way or another, it’s best to stay away from it.

    But of course! This sort of thing is what causes rapes, child abuse, etc. Cos you know no one EVER got raped before porn became available in the 70′s/80′s. And paedophiles NEVER existed.Just ask the church! And they NEVER EVER have any rapes or child abuse in strictly censored Muslim countries. Or the old strictly censored Communist countries. Or in dirt poor developing countries where people can’t afford food let alone porn. Yes yes clearly seeing fashion ads turns people into slavering sex beasts. I’m off home to beat the wife and impregnate the daughter. And then I’ll sue Cavin Klein for distress and emotional damages.

    This is a brilliant ad precisely because, in an ad cogested world it has got all of you lot going! This is why it makes a billion every year selling very ordinary jeans and clothes that could be done by anybody. You’ll never buy calvins again? ( Yeah right like you buy designer clothes anyway! ) Somehow I cant see the people behind this sitting in their mansions and penthouses quaking in their boots fretting theyll never work again.

    This reminds me of Jean Paul Gaultier. Some prissy American fashion journalists called one of his collections s&m porn. So he sent them a parcel of proper s&m porn “just so they could tell the difference in future”

    Sure looking at this will make teenagers say “DUUH I thinks Ill go make me a babee…” America with its no sex education and massive abstinence industry has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the developed world, FIVE times higher than the lowest, ultra liberal easy going porn friendly Holland where sex education starts at 5.

    6:39 I’m not saying looking at this billboard will make you go home and beat your wife and impregnate your daughter ?? (you said it not me) what I’m saying is if you think there’s nothing wrong with this ad, then you must think the harder porn is okay and I’m telling you the risks that you’re taking by looking at that filth. Of course rapist, molesters etc. have always been around, what do you think that pornography showed up with Hugh Hefner? It’s been around for thousands of years, I suppose you have never seen the Roman ruins, those people were disgusting just like today they even wore theirs. Perversion is everywhere whether you’re rich or poor, the demons are out and they’re free to roam.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
