I like my sexy underwear and I enjoy feeling sexy, when I do feel like being sexy, but I don’t need sexy car insurance. In fact, I despise the fact that Geico feels it necessary to use sex to sell insurance.

You know the commercial. The one with the guy talking dirty into the phone at 3:00 a.m. when his wife catches him. He does sound as if he is on the phone with a call girl or a mistress. This is because he is trying to sound that way. Geico wants us to associate Geico Auto Insurance with ‘having a good time.’

I would actually like for someone to take a poll so I can learn just how many men buy Geico insurance because they believe it is a sexy insurance. Really? They can’t use anything else except the oldest game in town to sell insurance?

How about other commercials that imply sex is involved? Do any of us really want a sexy cheeseburger? I eat my food, not make love to it. In all honesty, if we eat too many cheeseburgers, there won’t be any sex.

I’d like to think man has evolved past the notion that sex has to be a part of everything in life. If you are as tired as I am of these disgusting commercials, change the channel as soon as these ads air. Wait three minutes, then turn back to the channel that aired the ad. They get the message that you turned the commercial off. If enough of us do this, they get the message that we don’t think it’s cute to imply that our husbands get out of bed at 3:00 a.m. to talk dirty to an insurance rep.

  1. I agree! So sick and tired of hearing the old excuse ‘sex sells’ – so do sales and good products, so why does advertising and the media feel the need to exploit someone to make money!!!

      • I haven’t seen the commercial, but know of others that follow similar ‘story lines’. I agree, it’s all in bad taste and unnecessary. Young children are already being sexualised enough, it’s like the boundaries are forever being pushed. I would gladly see the end to such nonsense. If only!

  2. AmenSister…I Cannot Think Of A THing I Bought Because Of A Stupid Commercial. I Agree One Of Tge Dumbest Yet Is The Guy Whispering In The Phone At Night For Insurance. ThereAreManyReasonsL
    That One Is Stupid….I Don’t Care Who You Are!
