    When did this start?
    Is RJ advertising on manhunt?

    Can this be why DancerJack was noticing that profiles of new users on this site are becoming much more sexualized (like he mentioned in his thread) ?

    To be fair, the ad I saw was a duo ad for Connexion AND Manhunt.
    I wonder what the reasoning is behind it.
    I'm fairly sure it's $$$ for everyone involved.

    What do you guys think about this?

    That maybe RJ was above that?
    That its just business?

    Is this like Whole Foods advertising for Mcdonalds???

    It seems to me that sooner or later all these gay sites are gonna be owned by the same company. That kind of scares me actually!

    There are definite advantages to being a RJ supporter. I don't see any ads. And since I have a near phobia to marketing of any sort, that is a good thing.

    I guess you are right about that. Although, I do like to know what's going on with the things I support..

    Marketing purposes!!! I could not tell you who offered the adspace!!

    I also notice the sexualized adds but, I also noticed that these members dont even follow up with their profiles. Im sure they give up, once they figure out that members purpose on this site is health, fitness and community rather than just sex!

    Uh, this is just a shot in the dark, but maybe people on here are more dichotomous than you are. Perhaps the advertisers feel ManHunt can offer something to gay health enthusiast as well and it certainly can. icon_wink.gif

    I work as a marketing assistant for a big dating site (this is how I found RJ) and trust me, it has nothing to do with the content on any sites rather than if its a gay site, lets promote gay.

    Marketing = Money! Chachinnn!!!!!!

    Okay you cannot make a statement like that without posting a demonstration of your skill. Also you need to explain in jaw-dropping detail not only the technique, but the benefits of penis pushups. icon_lol.gif

    If you notice, it's actually not a duo ad. If you scroll on it, it makes the selection to the Connexion site for you.

    The people at Connexion are taking a dig at Manhunt.

    People people people...if RJ weren't at least in some way...related to its more sexual...sisterly sites such as Manhunt/gay.com/name one, they wouldn't give you the option for PRIVATE PHOTOS that allow you to advertise your naughty parts.

    Omg, imagine that, gay men's profiles becoming sexualized! Dude, gay men sexualize any website or club or bar or event they go to, it's natural. I gave up on being a prude when I was getting offers for hookups on match.com and plentyoffish. If a gay guy sexualizes his profile then I say administration aren't doing their job.

    It's almost like our only common thread of community is related to sexual preference. Oh wait... icon_rolleyes.gif

    We're a minority defined by our sexuality. Can't spell sexuality without sex.

    Actually, I first saw an advertisement for RJ on Manhunt. Don't know if I'd have ever found it otherwise. Glad I did.

    Despite the current government intervention, let me remind everyone that the government books in US highschools claim we have a capitalist economy. Maybe I'm the only one who still believes in the invisible hand, but god dammit, the system works, the system works, the system called.......reciprocity......:-)
