Dolce & Gabbana pulled an ad today after women's groups in Italy and Spain alleged that the ad depicts a "fantasy rape" and thereby promotes violence against women. Dolce & Gabbana counter that the ad was meant to portray an "erotic dream" (presumably among consenting, of-age dream avatars). What do you think?

I say neither. Looks like your standard, creepy pseudo sensual D&G spread to me--too unemotional to be either violent or particularly erotic. Lesson: never make love to a model.
