Promotional E-mail from Detail magazine's PR Firm


Hi there,

I wanted to write to update you on the latest Privileges updates from Details magazine. The Privileges section of the Details website offers exclusive deals and steals for its readers on Details-endorsed products and services around the country.

SNOOZE CITY DESIGNS

For guys sick of boring, 400-thread-count sheets, Snooze City Designs has created playful alternatives—like pillowcases with turntables and PASS OUT HERE . . . emblazoned on them—that will inspire a laugh instead of a yawn. Note: Unless you're stuck in your college-stoner phase, save the cannabis and naked-girl bedding for your teenage brother. To get the code to enter for 10 percent off your online order, readers should visit the Privileges section of www.details.com

Thanks and I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Best,

Laura

Laura:

I don't know whether you are directly connected with Details magazine but I must say that I am surprised that a woman would be promoting pillow cases to basically a guy audience that is subliminally saying, women, when you get drunk, pass out in my bed. Or is it just a Freudian slip.

This may seem innocent enough but it's not really a laughing matter and is something I don't think you really want to encourage guys to do. If you need another perspective, I just Googled "Sex with passed out women". There are over 100,000 listings using the words out of order and only seven listings by that exact reading. However, I understand that is the latest craze - get a woman drunk or give her a date rape drug, then when she passes out, have her give you fillatio. Apparently, there are a lot of porn web sites that demonstrate how this is done.

As several of the listings say "You can no longer have sex with a drunk woman in England because of this. Thank goodness this is new, because I would have never had sex. ..." or "Some guys actually like/prefer having sex with passed out women.." or"... cheer the culture that holds that having sex with passed out women isn’t REALLY rape (and if she was a proper lady she wouldn’t be out drinking so ...".

With major retailers like Wal Mart selling junior intimate thongs to pre-teens called "No Boundaries" and toddler panties with the line "Who needs credit cards" across the front near the crotch, I hope you personally and maybe politically within your company make it known of what this pillow case says to many young men.

Yours in continued growth,

"Checking out the validity of an e-mail we received from a Laura Levin at Freud Communications in New York that claims that Details is endorsing a product from Snooze City Designs - a pillowcase with the line "Pass Out Here" emblazoned on it. It suggests a 10% discount by going on-line to www.details.com and visit The Privileges section. How can I find the URL for this product?"

Dear Mr. Peres:

I recently received a press release via E-Mail from Freud Communications, your promotion/public relations agency that claims that Details is endorsing a product from Snooze City Designs - a pillowcase with the line "Pass Out Here" emblazoned on it.

If you are not aware of the extension of the date rape drugs from not just getting the woman to pass out but manipulating her head to give the perpetrator head. Mary web sites promote this activity in graphic detail.

Even if rape wasn't the interest, having a pillow case like yours in a frat house or dorm room just isn't cool. It's similar to the child and toddler's panties that Wal Mart was carrying that read "Who needs credit cards" across across the front near the crotch.

"The only positive outcome from continuing to sell those pillow cases would be press information that went out that basically questions "What kind of man buys a pillow case from Details magian that reads "Pass Out Here". Maybe this guy isn't the sharpest (or the safest) guy in the house. And, maybe this represents the attitude towards woman that his friends hold, too. Be aware."

We hope you don't run any promotions and advertising promoting this product in your magazine and that you encourage your promotion and product department for discontinue the product immediately.

We would be most interested in your decision.

Sincerely,

Gordon Clay
