Christmas Isn't So Vanilla

Ah, the holidays. Obligations to spend time with family members you don't like and spend money you don't have. All those annoying things aside, Christmas is interesting in that it really sets off my spank-dar with all the references in vanilla advertising. There's been a commercial for the Jared Galleria of Jewelry I've seen many times over the past few weeks. It is advertising Le Vian chocolate diamonds and at the end of the commercial it says "Le Vian chocolate diamonds, they're anything but vanilla." It makes me laugh every time I hear it. It's about time they market diamonds for kinky people! It's a totally untouched demographic! And I must ask, who really gets diamonds and Lexuses for Christmas? Holiday advertising is laughable.

Another not so vanilla Christmas reference came in the form of a card I received from a friend. The front of it has a picture of a girl sitting in a chair facing a corner. Inside was written "If you aren't on the nice list by now, it's probably too late." Now this was sent by a fellow spanko friend but it came from Hallmark, not Fetlife. And with all the Santa references of naughty and nice and stores filled with panties like these--->
it makes one wonder what the vanilla people are thinking. Do they not see that all these things blatantly lead to spanking? I'm not the one with a skewed view here, they are! How can they not see it? Poor vanillas with their heads in the sand. They'll never know all the fun things one can do for Christmas.

I wish you all very happy holidays and may it include some of this-

Or this

Or this

If that's what you wish.

Merry Christmas!

Very clever and funny post Lea. You are so right about a not so vanilla Christmas.

Hope you had a great day.

@sarah, It is a funny one. Hope you had a great Christmas!

@Regan, I hope you had a Merry Christmas also! And you're welcome!

@Pink, See, I'm not the only one who notices these things. We're the normal ones. ;-) Hope you had a great Christmas!

@Hermione, It's an interesting marketing ploy I think. Happy holidays!

@joey, I hope you had a great Christmas as well, and possibly a not so vanilla one! ;-)

Hope your holidays are as warm as the Santa's Helper there is getting to be!

Car Ads are facetious! I have yet to see anything with four wheels, much less a Lexus in any driveway with a bow on top. I suppose it can happen, there have been frogs from the sky and such occasionally/

@Wolfie, Thanks, my holidays were nice, hope yours have been as well. One year my dad said he'd get me a Mustang which had been my dream car since I was a kid. He did. It was beautiful, shiny and yellow. Sadly, I couldn't fit into it as it was about 3 in x 2 in. ;-)
