Friction Free Shaving, a British company selling subscription-order razors, created a funny ad about women shaving, but Facebook wasn't laughing. They banned the ad by classifying it as "too adult" and cited the blocking out of specific bodies parts as "implied nudity."
Adverts must not contain adult content. This includes nudity, depictions of people in explicit or suggestive positions or activities that are overly suggestive or sexually provocative."Sexually suggestive content is: Nudity or implied nudity, even if artistic or educational in nature, excessive visible skin or cleavage, even if not explicitly sexual in nature, or images focused on individual body parts, such as abs, buttocks or chests, even if not explicitly sexual in nature.
We wanted to move away from traditional and outdated women’s shaving ads that are over-glamourised, sexualised and unrealistic. We don’t think that a woman shaving is anything to be ashamed of and find it sexist and deeply offensive that Facebook has banned our ad on these grounds.
