I find this unsettling

There's some shampoo/body soap commercial on. It features a male centaur showering talking about the greatness of the product.

At the end of the commercial a female (bipedal human) companion comes in and there is suggestive talk is made.

Frankly, I don't think implied semi-bestiality is a great seller of products but maybe that is me.

That is an old spice commercial...
I thought it was hilarious... just in line with all the other recent old spice commercials that really make no sense whatsoever.

But I get where you are coming from..

I crack up every time he puts the shampoo on his back.

"Implied semi-bestiality" . Gotta say, that'd be a tough call to make - he is, after all, a sentient person and not just a dumb animal - he just has an extra set of legs. And, well, he's probably hung like a ... picture, too.

Do you think they have a stable relationship?

Re: I find this unsettling

I have no issue with the commercial, though, like I said in the Mr. T thread, I'm a little amused by the fact that the cencors pulled Mr T's "implied gay bashing" commercial, but leave an "implied beastiality" commercial. Where are those good, family oriented values now?!?

I get a laugh out of the Gillette commercial that promotes "hydrating" your dry skin instead of calling the product "moisturizer". Same diff.......

I'm just trying to picture how such an act between the two would work.

They do seem to have a large nice home, they've probably made a fortune from the "Donkey Show"-type crowd in live shows and pay-to-view website.

But, damn, she's probably like throwing a hotdog down a hallway.

Is it really any more beastiality than Vulcan Human slash or Trill-Klingon etc?
[and yeah, I'm sure, that's been discussed here before ]

I'm a Sagittarius, I've grown up being showered with Centaur related gifts/imagery. And I've noticed a double standard about this.

When people see any of my female centaur stuff its like "oh hawt" but if its male it gets odd looks or no interest at all.

I don't see anything particularly sexual about either, but its odd that young males seem to get horny when they see a Mermaid or female Centaur but any mythological male creature is 'eww'.

Judging from some of the remarks male friends have made, if there was honestly such a thing as Centaurs they'd be out trying to ahem, mount any females they could find.

Nothing wrong with liking male centaurs or other male/animal combinations. Female centaurs/mermaids are "hot" in a kind-a-sorta way. But I wouldn't have sex with one. Since with a centaur you're doing a horse and I don't even know how it'd work with a mermaid. But I guess in that case I'd just be jacking into the eggs she laid. No fun there.

But atleast with "female" half-animals they've got "fun parts" to play with in their human half. Males? Not so much.

And, besides, I'm talking about the suggested intercourse here.

It is "implied" in this commerical that the woman in it lays on her bed and gets a horse-cock rammed into her. That's just an unsettling thought.
