If there’s one consumer-related issue that we’re all over like a rash here at Bitterwallet, it’s lingerie. We know it’s what you want from us. So here’s our latest CONSUMER LINGERIE NEWS ROUND-UP…

ONE: Marks & Spencer have been firmly rapped across the knuckles by the Advertising Standards Authority for two of their recent outdoor posters that appeared on the sides of buses and were deemed as too sexy. One ad featured a close-up of a woman lying on her side, while the second was of a woman lying on a bed with her legs slightly apart and with another woman sitting on the bed. Mmmm, very French.

Once they’d calmed down after looking at the powerfully erotic ads, the ASA were particularly unhappy with the first one as it was likely be seen by children. ASA sex-boffins found the image of a woman kneeling on the bed was overtly sexual, as her legs were wide apart, her back arched and one arm above her head, with the other touching her thigh. Steady on fellas.

TWO: There could be a new reason for mum to go to Iceland – to get herself a new batch of powerfully erotic underwear. The supermarket chain is up for sale and retail imagineers have put together a series of proposals for new owners, highlighting exciting and different ways in which they could boost sales.

These include selling non-grocery items such as electrical goods, homewares, toys, lingerie and video games. You know, like all the other supermarkets successfully do. Some magnificent retail Imagineering there, although we’re not sure what they mean by ‘toys’. There’s the outside possibility that mum could go to Iceland and not have to bother going to Ann Summers any more. Oh MUM, you’re SO embarrassing…

    This story is meaningless without the actual adverts to cogitate, deliberate and digest.

    Ugh - you're SO embarrassing. I wish you'd stop doing it at family mealtimes too.

    Go for it and ignore that bitch of a mother. She's always using the love eggs that I bought her last year for Christmas.

    @Dick's Grandad: I can't believe you gave my used love eggs to our daughter. I'd just had them recalibrated to stop my false teeth rattling.
