One Ad We'd Like to See

My readers send me all sorts of interesting stuff.  Take for example this slightly enhanced Nike advertisement.

I loved the message of the original ad and this version takes it a step further.  Curves are beautiful.  And, no, that young woman is not me.

Hi Bonnie,

It's amazing that the ad is the real thing. It's rare to see anything in praise of curves. Good for Nike!

I love the imagery: letter C, space heater, border collie (?)

Kind of a twist on the old "Does size matter?"

The shape is more important. The woman in this ad has a great shape.

Still, I prefer more like the original ad. I can't believe they used that on an ad for "big." It's anything but big. Talk about giving women complexes ... Geesh.

Might as well show a picture of John Holmes in an ad about small penises.

If the woman in the ad you linked to is considered a "big butt" then I guess I am a fan of big butts and just never knew.

Hermione - I completely agree. All my adult life, OK even before that, I've heard jokes (some lighthearted and some less so) about my loose caboose. There's no getting around the fact that I too have a big butt.

Today, however, I know my husband loves and appreciates me exactly as I am - junk, truck, and all. I have come to realize that beauty takes many forms and curvaceous is definitely one of them.

Dante - Hi! It's good to see you out and about. I hope your health issues have receded.

Anyhow, when I saw the original ad, I was surprised as well. I'm sorry, but that woman doesn't know what a big butt is. Neither, apparently does the ad agency.

Even so, I appreciate the public recognition that a big butt can look sensational. If we can spread this message, we can help millions of women to feel more confident in themselves and their bodies. Go Nike!

I'm going to quit updating SpankaBum and will eventually shut it down.

I originally started it just to play with the html in the template.

But I got carried away as usual and thought I should update it.

I will merge the content from here with Bumtickler, my original blog.

I thank the readers, followers and commenters and hope that you will find something to tickle your bum on the other blog.

Thank you,

Love the ad. All the versions of it. :D

Love this ad but the original is definitely my favorite! Although, I would KILL to have her butt . . . . . it's not in the slightest sense "big."

Thanks for sharing. :-)

And I would kill to have her butt where I can tickle, smack, and play with it. :D

There are multiple ideals of feminine beauty. Thin and elfin is one, curvy and voluptuous is another. Some prefer one over the others, but none are inherently "better."

That said, I definitely prefer the latter.

OK. If that butt is big, I'm a little worried that, by comparison, mine goes off the scale as HUMUNGOUS!!!! xxxxxxxx

What a gorgeous bottom ! Perhaps second last line for
'kiss' it really should be 'spank' !

I love this! Very positive and happy making.

I love that you posted this! I see so many skinny little bottoms on spanking websites and while that's great and all, not all of us are built like that. Once upon a time, when I was younger and more obsessed with society's definition of "perfect," I decided I would keep losing weight until my backside looked as I wanted it to. That was great in theory..until I was 82 lbs, emaciated, all my friends were freaked out, and when I looked in the mirror, I still thought my ass was too wide. One day I realized that the "problem" part of my butt was not determined by fat, but rather by the width of my hip bones. I'd starved and starved trying to get bones to shrink. *shakes head* Ridiculous. I like a healthy, natural woman with a healthy, natural bottom. Real is okay, gosh darn it. In fact, real is beautiful, sexy, and I prefer it.

I LOVE THIS! As a girl with an ample ass, this makes me smile.

Thanks for the link to my blog too -- I got a large # of hits today, and when I looked at my stats many were coming from this site. Glad I checked it out - I will be back.
