‘Penis Shadow’ Ad in Miami Living Magazine

Miami Living magazine has published an ad featuring the shadow of a penis, FoxNews.com’s Pop Tarts reports.

The ad, for dating service EstablishedMen.com, appears in the magazine’s Spring/Summer issue, which features Courteney Cox on its cover. It features two lingerie-clad women; a penis-shaped shadow appears over the chest of one of the women.

“Did they not see this, or have magazines become so desperate for ad space that they’ll ‘overlook’ something like this?” asked media and publishing expert Penny C. Sansevieri. “But I find that every time something like this happens it elevates the exposure, good or bad – and issues will get snapped up very quickly.”

“When we created the ad, we never imagined a magazine like Miami Living would approve it, but judging by the amount of sign-ups we received since the magazine has come out, this ‘shadow penis’ ad seems to work and might become a staple of our campaign,” the rep said. “This ad is definitely a true reflection of what EstablishedMen.com is all about – connecting professional men with beautiful women for mutually beneficial relationships. And knowing that Courteney Cox was going to be on the cover was a big incentive for us.”

I find the last sentence confusing. Is Courteney Cox synonymous with loving penis? Or have I missed the point?
