While many of us know that unsafe sex can lead to baby making, the juxtaposition of a Pampers ad on a sexual position app is either a funny coincidence, or an effective contraceptive message.
TechCrunch writer Erick Schonfeld's eagle eyes noticed the image, which appeared on one of the "300+ Sex Positions" that make up the app of the same name. The Pampers ad shows what appears to be a not-quite born child curled up in fetal position. Its eyes are shut to the naughty goings-on of the ambiguously gendered couple engaged in a sexual position guaranteed not to end in pregnancy. Both free apps are available through the iTunes App Store.
Because of its NSFW imagery, here is a link to the screenshot heard around the world (or just to those who pay attention to such things).
The sexual positions app is full of body contortions you can "Enjoy with your lover, Every night!" The names, some of which would make good porn titles, are enough to inspire some sparks: Twirl-a-Girl, Romp with a View, Sexy Scissors and The Head Over Heels.
Not so sparky: the ad" for the Pampers Hello Baby Pregnancy Calendar" app, which does in fact explain why the baby looks like he/she isn't quite ready for prime time yet! See the image above for a screenshot.
While carrying a child and delivering it into the world is a miracle deserving of the utmost care, the mention of Pampers conjures up the more odious obligations of parenthood. Anyone who has ever changed a diaper knows just one whiff may be all it takes to convince those not ready to take on the responsibility to wait until they are.
That's one way to kill the mood, crafty ad placer.
