an offer of free ice cream from Ann Summers will attract as many children as adults

Driving on the motorway on Friday (family in car) We passed an ice cream van that offered on the back - 'Free ice cream - Grab a mouthful'. On the back of the van was the web address annsummers.com Along the side of the van it proclaimed 'Summer of Sex'. Am I overreacting to think that kids seeing this may well go to the website to see how they can get their free ice cream only to be confronted by a selection of dildos? I did phone and email the company but got no response.

Definitely don't look 18. They should have been checking IDs.

They should not be running this highly inapropriate campaign in the first place.
I mean associations with hardcore porn on the highstreet, that's going right through libralism out to the pornification of society as a whole.
