It's standard-issue advertising when companies use sex to sell things: fertilizer, cat food, fast food, even kitchen sponges. But some products go a step further. To say these brands are relying on innuendo feels somehow not quite strong enough:


A cereal backed by pseudo-science is divided into genders -- “The Male cereal supports testosterone and energy levels,” says the website, “while the Female cereal was created with hormonal balance and desire in mind.”

XXXitchen Kitchenware

This line of sexualized kitchenware by Raffaele Iannello features potholders (for example) that, according to the site, "are designed for a mostly male audience, who will certainly enjoy grasping hot pots and pans by ‘squeezing’ anatomical appendices. Which, as often happens in reality, are also in this case made of silicon." Kitchenware that looks like sex toys. Food porn, I guess?

Sexy Pop

Is your sex life a little dull? Need to spice it up? Try some...popcorn. It's bangin'!

iBoobies iPhone Case

Behold, the iBoobies iPhone case -- not to be confused with the banned iBoobie App -- a disturbing case for the dude who likes to advertise how perverted he is. Really, any guy with this case is doing you a favor: Do not date him.

Billy Boy Energy Drink

This product might not sound sexual at all, but Billy Boy is a condom manufacturer in Germany. The drink also comes with a condom. Also, there is a giant cartoon penis on it, in case you didn't notice.
