  • #SexFactsOmaha fights teen sex myths

    By on 26 January 2016

    This campaign, by all-volunteer agency Serve Marketing for Women’s Fund of Omaha, is pretty good in terms of production. But do teens really believe any of these things? This gives me serious doubts about sex education in Omaha. The campaign includes TV spots,...

  • #ItsNeverOkay makes harassment brutally frank

    By on 26 November 2015

    **Trigger Warning: Sexual Harassment, Bullying, Implied Rape** In March, I wrote about the Government of Ontario’s great new anti-sexual-assault campaign, #WhoWillYouHelp. Now, they’re addressing some more subtle forms of harassment, both sexual and bullying, by having the offenders speak plainly...

  • Sexual abuse should not be a normal part of growing up

    By on 17 November 2015

    I’m of two minds about this new campaign for The Children’s Society (UK) by VCCPme: The storyline is chilling, and deeply affecting. Especially when we see the family’s ignorance of what the young woman is going through. At the same time,...

    By on 8 November 2015

    A big hurray for this campaign from the Canadian Avalon Sexual Assault Centre. They proof that not only communication professionals know the rules of appealing communication, the fact that we often seek. Also applause for an organization that wasn’t blinded by...

  • Is this the first campaign about Premature Grandparents?

    By on 21 October 2015

    We’ve lost count which edition it is in the Baby Can Wait series made by Serve Marketing for the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. This blog post is about the new part, surprisingly yet again with a new...

  • The erasure of LGBT youth

    By on 25 August 2015

    Well, “LG” anyway: These posters, for Czech LGBT support organization Sbarvouven, give a visual expression of how “in the closet” lesbian and gay youth feel themselves erased by having to pretend to be someone they’re not. Simple, but devastating. Agency: Oh,...

  • These revenge porn ads seem a little too sexy

    By on 14 August 2015

    I use my iPhone to text daily, but it took me a minute to figure out that these women were split up by the familiar “talk bubbles.” Then I had to admit to myself that I was instinctively distracted...

  • Omaha herpes ads are cruel to sufferers

    By on 21 July 2015

    There’s an inherent problem in using shock or shame in a prevention campaign for sexually-transmitted infections, and it’s the effect your effort will have on people living with these diseases. Sure, you want people to have safer sex. But...

  • These people come out as anti-equal-marriage, for some reason

    By on 30 June 2015

    Last week’s ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States, legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states, has provoked a lot of negative reaction by Americans who oppose such unions on religious grounds. The cliché reaction is to claim that...
