Kiwi porn king's 'female masturbating' billboard banned.

Wellington, Oct 15 (ANI): Porn King Steve Crow is under fire for putting up a moving billboard displaying an image of a woman woman's naked pelvic area with a halved melon positioned in front of it.

However, Advertising Standards Complaints Board (ASCB) stated that the woman appears to be simulating female masturbation and has banned the advertisement.

The ad was strategically placed on a mobile billboard and towed around Auckland's streets in the lead up to Crow's annual Erotica Lifestyles Expo during August.

The ASCB has upheld 71 complaints from the public over the ad, which the complainants say was indecent, offensive, discriminatory and 'dehumanising'.

The board was unanimous in its view that the advertisement was degrading to women.

In response to the complaints, advertiser Eden Digital told the board it was resigned if not in agreement with the ad's banning.

"The complaints seem pretty much the same old same old puritanical nonsense from a very small sample of the population," Stuff.co.nz quoted him as saying.

"At the end of the day the photo used on the billboard is nothing more than a naked woman holding a piece of fruit in front of her pelvic area but I have long since learned that the ASA gives more weight to the ranting of the conservative minority than common sense or the silent opinion of the," he concluded.
