Dissecting melons [updated]

The billboard promoting the Erotica Expo in Auckland featured a naked woman's pelvic area covered with a dissected melon. Her finger was inserted in the centre of the fruit.

The ASA received 71 complaints from people claiming it was offensive and dehumanising.

One wonders where these undissected melons have been all their lives. Even Stuff adds to the hype surrounding the afflicted sensibilities of the poor wee dears who find such things offensive with an explicit image warning. [update explicit pic for your viewing pleasure at Whale's shop - Stuff wimped out and removed their dissected melon]

Offensive and dehumanising??? I thought it was an excellent ad. Some melons really need to get out and about.
