Writer of the Sunday NZ Herald Editorial suggests “…the [Boobs on Bikes] parade is best treated like the show-off child it so much resembles – by being ignored.” The writer is adamant that the massive billboard of a naked woman Steve, his bother David Bruce Crow of Inglewood and sister Leanne Marie Osborn of Fitzroy, New Plymouth, used to cynically market the Erotica Lifestyles Expo porn sleaze, was calculated to offend.
“But the billboard that expo organiser Steve Crow unveiled this week is of a different order [to the parade] altogether. By any measure, the image is objectionable in a public context and you don’t have to be a purse-lipped prude to think so.
“Puerile and dismally witless, it is also quite calculatedly offensive because it seeks not to attract those who are interested but to outrage those who are not.
“Hard-core pornography – You know it when you see it … it is beyond distasteful and truly offensive
“Crow is terribly pleased with himself because of all the publicity he’s received. But the rest of us should make it plain what we think of this sort of cynical marketing.”
