As a brand on a mission to revolutionize sexual health, we were thrilled to secure an ad spot in Times Square to run for 2 days. We thought - FINALLY, sexual health is being recognized and celebrated. But, we were told that we couldn’t advertise there because of the product category. To have secured this ad placement just in time for Valentine’s Day and then to be told later that we are not allowed to advertise in Times Square because of “this category of ads” is absurd, unfair, and unjust.
We are as NY and diverse as it gets. To reject the ad is unacceptable, and unfair to women’s rights. We need to come together as a community, now more than ever, to stand up for women’s rights and destigmatize sexual health once and for all. Please share this with your friends, colleagues, family, and anyone who wants to be a part of this conversation.
We will still continue to fight for YOUR right to express yourself and eradicate sexual shame.
We have written a letter to the NYC mayor in hopes that he will take action and support our mission.
