Such a big issue now in the Philippines... (especially in Manila).. Anyway so what is your take on this? Would you find a group of men or a woman in her underwear offensive especially if they are as huge as a building in such a busy street to be seen by everyone and is a threat for the drivers who might get distracted while they are driving? What do you say? here's a sample of the billboard.. http://www.spot.ph/featured/48710/philippine-volcanoes-sizzle-in-bench-billboards

I don't drive so I don't find it distracting and I don't think it offensive as well. We all have bodies, some may be blessed to have a good looking body and they wish to flaunt it so let them. It is a form of art as well. We are free do show what we got and these persons in the billboards are only paid so they are not the ones to be blames with those super big billboards on the busy streets of Manila or in the buildings of our main city's.

I don't think it is offensive. But the main reason why it should not be there on these busy streets is that it poses some safety hazards which can lead to vehicular accidents. And everyone is aware of that. And I don't understand why they still do that when ultimately it is bound to be removed anyway.

Ohhhh friend left it if they are on underwear in busy street whats your problem. If you dont want to see then left it hahaha . But really in our county this is not allowed at least women in underwear means shameless thing and no family is allowed for that even she are going for running then a small skirt is necessary.

Living in a conservative country, it is normal that the authority feels that having those kind of pictures is a form of scandal. But I think it is time for us to changes. I mean, having pictures of woman or a man in their bikini(especially if they are endorsing underwear products) is not vulgar at all. What makes it vulgar is how the one seeing those pictures think.

Well, I suppose it's a matter of opinion here. I mean it wasn't the normal say 20 years ago but now it seems like it has been forced to be normal for us. It makes me wonder if it has progressed to this in the last 20 years what will we be seeing in the future (in say 20 years?) *sigh*

it's no big deal for adults to see but children will be somewhat confused upon viewing them and they keep covering the eyes. since children have a right to see good, taking off those billboards became an important action whether it is liked or not. anyway those men that have been shown do not like to stay exposed for so long either.

it's the same reason's also when you attend a mass on Sunday.... we should never wear shorts or sleeveless or else, the Church personnel will not permit you in, or the people around you cannot concentrate to the message of the priest because what you did is a distraction to the faith.... same also with that regards to billboards, it is like using cellphone while driving, can't concentrate with the rules of the road or defensive driving... anyone will bypass on that area will stare to the looks and beauties of the models in those billboard and say "WOW!!!", it in a split second, not notice that oncoming vehicle will leads to a collision, or you'll not notice that there's an illegal jay walking and since you are a power driven vehicle, the driver is liable for such incident due to carelessness.
