That is the new advertisement I am seeing all over Stockholm. They started a couple days ago and in Swedish say, “Är du gift? Gör livet levande – ha en affär.” And this ad was at a bus stop. You know, a place where kids can hang out and ask their parents why people should have affairs.
It could be just my liberal mind, but this seems warped. Actually closer to f’ed up. A company actively promoting adultery?
This is from Victoria Milan a dating site that’s like the other oddly British named company Ashley Madison (though not British). Great how both have old British names.
And even better that when you do a Google search for the competitor Ashley Madison, half the results are for “Ashley Madison: Scam or Site” but actually are veiled sites in support of the company.
We have a company that has “scam” reviews on the homepage of Google. Then both the IP address and mail server of AshleyMadison.com also serve the domains statisticsoninfidelity.com and whenmonogamybecomesmonotony.org. Sounds like a good place to do business. You know, loyal and all.
Victoria Milan, the company with the classy bus stop ads promoting infidelity in the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark seems to be the newcomer. Dating in Sweden has just become that more complicated.
So while adultery is no longer a crime in most countries and US states, you can still file for divorce and take everything if you can prove infidelity. Though Victoria Milan has an “Ethics and Law” statement on their site that says, “We are not celebrating nor promoting adultery,” doesn’t a bus stop advertisement count as promoting adultery? Or was this a valuable PSA to all the kids out there?
I smell subpoenas for two companies promoting violating a sacrosanct commitment.
Wow, and I thought I was liberal!
