Skip to comments.MTA will allow sex toy ads on the subway

The MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) said Thursday that it would allow ads for a sex toy company to appear in the subway one day after the images were deemed too racy for city straphangers.
The reversal came after accusations of unequal treatment when the company that handles MTA ads said the colorful images from luxury sex toy company Unbound violated policies about indecent material.

I’m glad I never cared for New York.
One of my commie cousins just loves the place.
I wish they'd bring back Miss Subways and dump the sex toys.
Sounds like a veritable Socialist Progressive Paradise!
Just Like San Fransisco!..................
Ah, Vera Ellen....
How else do you get around when visiting NYC? Buses? Slower than the subway, with a less comprehensive network. Taxis? That gets expensive real quick.
I ride the trains all the time, especially the Q line. I don’t generally have a problem except it does get really crowded. But that shuttle...
On the Town!
Knowing NYC, they will probably allow ads that show the items in use.
Sex Robot ads coming..................soon.................
It was a vacation and we were only there for the afternoon. In the past I lived and worked in NYC for many years but on vacation, like the ‘outoftowners’ we were we took the taxi’s everywhere or walked blocks on end. We actually walked 20 blocks to get to the West side of the village.
Taxi’s. Yike. I’m no millionaire, but my husband who is from rural-ish NJ did not like the subway idea at all. Me. I wanted to, was homesick for it. I always loved the subways.
I am posting this article on FB.
May I use you comments verbatium, referencing only that I got them from a fellow poster in a conservative forum?
Back in 2000-2001 I rode the subways of Berlin, Germany.
They were clean, no graffiti, no smells, no crime.............................
Nope...Charlie’s on the MTA in Boston. I think it might be called the MBTA now...
I think of that song every time I see those letters.
RIP MTA, 1964.
I used to have to ride the subway on occasion about 30 years ago in Philly. Talk about disgusting! The cars were covered in graffiti inside and out. Seats missing or destroyed and the most pervasive smell on the platforms and in thw cars was urine. Overwhelming.
John Rocker was right:
From a story published in the December 27, 1999, issue of Sports Illustrated, Rocker made a number of allegations stemming from his experiences in New York City and answering a question about whether he would ever play for the New York Yankees or the New York Mets.
I’d retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-wracking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you’re riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing... The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?
During the interview, he also spoke of his opinion of the New York Mets and their fans:
Nowhere else in the country do people spit at you, throw bottles at you, throw quarters at you, throw batteries at you and say, “Hey, I did your mother last nightshe’s a whore.” I talked about what degenerates they were and they proved me right.
“Back in 2000-2001 I rode the subways of Berlin, Germany.
They were clean, no graffiti, no smells, no crime.............................”
That’s when there were actual ethnic Germans there at the time. They and police didn’t tolerate American type bull shit.
I lived in Berlin in the 60’s and it was the same then. God help you if you buggered someone in a zebra.
