    Default Fox News Horrified by ‘Incestuous’ Mother-Daughter Lingerie Ads

    Mother-daughter lingerie models, plus "phallic" logs.
    New ads for the lingerie label the Lake & Stars came out about a week ago, but Fox News recently stumbled across them and realized they'd hit a gold mine for their commentators' overanalysis. The campaign feature a gray-haired woman and her 19-year-old daughter sitting on the floor together in their underwear; according to psychologist Dr. Nancy Irwin, the images are "highly suggestive":
    They are clearly designed to titillate consumers; mostly men. The incestuous and lesbian suggestions, with the phallic images of cactus and logs, are juvenile at best ... I'm disgusted, yet hardly surprised by this. Advertisers (particularly of undergarments) continuously push the envelope on good taste to simply get attention and drive sales.
    Meanwhile, Lake & Stars owner Maayan Zilberman says the mother-daughter pair are actually friends of hers, and believes that Fox is overreacting.
    We're surprised that people are reacting with such violently negative connotations such as incest, given that we were only making light of a healthy and beautiful relationship between two women ... something we think people in our culture are often uncomfortable with ... We've always embraced women of all ages and sizes in our shoots, and having admired the loving relationship between our friends Johanna and India (the mom and daughter), it seemed a natural thing to feature them in a campaign representing our brand.

    They're pretty hideous photos. But thank you Fox, I just couldn't have done it without your sage journalism.

    These pics are a little squicky. They remind me of the Dina/Lindsey makeout photos.

    The campaign feature a gray-haired woman and her 19-year-old daughter sitting on the floor together in their underwear;



    She's grey-haired?!
    Doesn't look like mom and daughter to me unless she fucked Opie (Ron Howard) as a teen

    um, isn't that the whole point of lingerie ads?

    Aww fuck; how screwed up in neurons could I possibly be if I admit that... (*strangled voice*)... I agree with Faux News that I see an intentional incest sub-text in these ads?


    Got wood? ...get it?

    Is the company admiting to adding phallic symbols to a lingerie ad featuring a mother and daughter, as a joke (i.e. "making light of"), but feigning surprise that some interpret a sexual vibe in the pictures? Yay, another "if you see something 'sexual' in child pornography, then you're the pervert, not the pedo who took the 'innocent' nude picture" defence.

    The lingerie is boring.

    I'm not seeing the incest but I am seeing ugly underwear and bad photos. Also, I love the tan lines on the mother.

    Speaking as a guy who is usually titillated by lingerie ads, I find these pictures really unmoving. The lingerie is too big (covers too much) - granny panties in first and third photos.

    The photos of the women, with expressionless faces, lying next to the log, look like a couple of carelessly stacked department store mannequins.

    In the second photo, while the daughter is kind of embracing the mom, the mom is turned to the camera with an expression that seems to say, "How dare you find this titillating?"

    The last photo kind of looks like a scene from an Ingmar Bergmann movie, minus the outer clothing.
