I love The Art of Manliness site. But imagine my surprise as I opened the web site to see a Nuva ring advertisement! Have any of you run across any hilarious ads on the site?

All gay cruises. Really.
hahaha you can't be serious. I mean you can. but surely not in this lifetime.
I've been seeing the one advertising how to help females loose those "unsightly hips" lately...
Don't knock the Nuva ring until you've tried it! I've had one in for the past six months and it works like a charm!

uh...........
I'll give you one thing, you aren't getting pregnant!
See? It's working already!

:D

Actually, it's a continuous-release application that must be removed after 3 weeks and replaced with another a week later. After those 3 weeks, there's 0 to minimal medication being provided. It's just an intimate accessory.

Ad saying; "Meet women in your area." Meet for what? To make me a mushroom omelette?

Even I don't get that one, but I see this is from before my time on AoM.

I keep getting this ad that switches from a fat to thin belly wanting to give me tips for a tiny belly.

It's often more complicated than that. 1) Yes, if you search for something specific, or visit a particular online retailer, you are likely to get ads for that specifically. 2) But the advertising algorithms also match up what non-retail sites you visit and words you type.

Example of 1: I buy most of my clothes online from LandsEnd, and check sales there about weekly. I get LandsEnd ads all over the internet - news sites, other retail sites, etc.

Examples of 2: I made a comment about my pain-killers on Facebook after oral surgery. I still get ads about addiction rehab. Facebook has more personal ads and smaller advertisers, so is more likely than AoM to give you ads related to what you post, as opposed to specific searches. When I was engaged, I'd get ads everywhere, including AoM, for wedding stuff like dresses and stationery, even from sites I never visited.

Not examples: The weight loss ad mentioned is probably just general New Year's advertising, as is the Netflix ad I see right now likely just general advertising.

Someone looking for cheap Nuva rings online would quickly be frustrated and disappointed. Let's just hope that wasn't her bedroom experience, too.
