i'm finding, "your sex life should be worth living" come and buy sex toys and porn majorly inappropriate for the relationships board where massively sensitive issues are discussed including women talking about how their partners porn use has had detrimental effects on them, or women who are being forced to have sex or feeling guilty about sex stuff etc are posting.

someone asking for support about sexual abuse etc can have the banner for a sex toy and bdsm and porn site flashing at them on their thread?

not on. don't understand how this fits with the mn ethos and it seems deeply insensitve.

i honestly thought it must be some weird spamming attack at first but are mumsnet really advertising porn and school girl uniforms and speculums and dildos now?

Really?! shock

I think this is totally inappropriate.

to target it specifically at the relationships board is awful imo.

"Experience the dirtiest girl in porn - Jenna Haze! The Forbidden Fleshlight not only features Jenna's tight ass but it also includes a realistic internal texture that will give you the most lifelike anal intercourse experience in existence!"

FFS. I thought Relationships was supposed to be a kind and gentle place, not somewhere where you can buy a plastic arsehole. Really MN?

i'm not sure how 'let girls be girls' and advertising fetish school uniforms fit together comfortably confused

plastic arseholes - on a board where women report being anally raped by their partners sometimes. lovely.

Please Mumsnet, this shop has a whole department of sexy schoolgirl outfits (some of which seem to have some connection to Hustler which as you may know is a not-particularly-nice American porn mag).

Now, I know opinion will differ as to whether or not there is anything dodgy about consenting adults dressing up as schoolchildren for sex, but personally I find the whole genre of barely legal and quasi-paedophilic porn, which these outfits reference, deeply wrong.

What are you DOING????!!!!!

What?! What the fuck is going on here? You want support on your relationship, here have a look at some porn. What on earth is going on here. <head finally explodes>

I was about to post for support on the relationships board only to have an ad for sex toys flashing in my face. How inappropriate is that?

Should have said I have no problem with sex toys in a healthy relationship but surely that's exactly why this is the wrong place for any such ads.

Using that is 'advice' taken from that site? FFS

Oh, that is not good. (However when logged in, and on that Board I receive "Mark Warner" and "Aquafresh" adverts)

Wow, I have clearly only ever been on the nicer woman-friendlier bits of LoveHoney.

Thanks for your comments - we hear you loud and clear.

We've taken them down from Relationships.

The medical fetish page is one you won't be able to forget. Brain bleach would be a useful product for someone to invent round about now.

There's also those ever empowerfulmentalising chastity belts , because women really know they're sexually in controll when they are wearing one of those.
