It’s not only in India where adult content or content related to such things is not allowed to be displayed in public. Even in a country like United States that is pretty open, an advertisement of a porn website on an intersection in a major city like New York faced criticism and was removed. It was the winning entry in a contest for non-pornographic ad content. Also Read - Kangana Ranaut Talks About Sunny Leone, Soft Porn, Urmila Matondkar, And Fake Feminists in One Tweet

According to a report in The Huffington Post, a porn website called Pornhub placed a billboard right at the heart of Times Square in New York City promoting their website. In the ad, there were two hands forming a heart with a tagline that read “All You Need Is Hand”. Despite the fact that the ad did not have any obscenity, it faced stiff opposition and was removed due to the word ‘Pornhub’. Also Read - Secret Has Gone With You!

As per the report, the DoubleTree hotel which occupies the building where the billboard was mounted, took strong objection and asked the authorities to have it remove.

However, Pornhub Vice-President Corey Price said that the advertising company that owns the billboard space had given them approval for the ad to be displayed in the location.

It is still unknown why the hotel management objected to the ad when there was nothing obscene in the imagery on the billboard. It is weird that people in a country like America are still uptight with regards to porn.
