Remember Love's Baby Soft? Me, I remember it so keenly that right now, just one whiff would transport me right back to all of my fantasy dates with Leif Garrett. I even remember -- now that Copyranter mentions it for old time's sake -- this ad, which, when it comes to leering at young girls, makes "Pretty Baby" and "Taxi Driver" look like "Zoom."

Fortunately -- just in time for puberty to be arriving earlier and earlier -- all that tween-sexualizing, virginity-fetishizing grossness has changed. Oh, wait.
