Opinionated

Herbal Orgasms? No I’m not talking about some new sex product or drug.

The product that I am talking about however does apparently make you feel ‘fulfilled’, ‘satisfied in a way you never thought possible’, ‘excited’, and it seems that there is just no way to avoid moaning with pleasure when you use it.

So what is it?

Herbal. Essences. Shampoo. S-H-A-M-P-O-O. The goo that you clean your hair with. It doesn’t even matter which one as, according to their adverts, women find all Herbal Essences Shampoo orgasmic.

I find their adverts ridiculous. There are some below for your viewing pleasure 😉

Fair enough, the adverts can be witty, tongue-in-cheek and admittedly amusing. If it was just one advert that played to the orgasm angle it probably wouldn’t bother me. But all of them? Does someone in your advertising department have a shampoo fetish? Do women usually turn to shampoo for sexual pleasure? Is your shampoo so bad that you can not advertise any selling points like how it makes hair shiny, smooth, soft or fragrant?

And don’t even get me started on being transported to a jungle, or a waterfall or becoming the goddess of a tropical island full of guys ready to worship my orgasmic hair.

That isn’t usually what I look for in a shampoo. I want nice hair.

What I don’t want is to answer the door to the postman and suddenly have Herbal Essences convincing him that my TV in the next room is blasting out porn.

Sort it out Herbal Essences.

So what do you think? Do adverts like these annoy you too or am I just a sour puss? Maybe it isn’t shampoo Ads. Maybe it’s perfume Ads. God. What is it about expensive perfume that transports you to the window at the top of a building and makes you want to gaze at the city lights below?

Maybe…just maybe…I have a thing about adverts.
