A new spin on prophylactics reminds consumers of their importance

Photographers mix innocence and sin in risque jungle gym shots

Coarse language transcends ordinary discourse
Implications - Consumers are drawn to the naughty—people love vulgarity. Until now, however, obscene language has never been anything more than part of day-to-day speak and R-rated movies.
