The Twister - On Saturday Night TV?

Warning: Adult Content.  So my wife and I were watching an old Clint Eastwood movie (Joe Kidd) on AMC last night and - out of the blue - comes an advertisement for "Trojan Vibrations Twister", a vibrator!  That's right, a vibrator ad at 7 pm on a Saturday night on the American Movie Channel!  Complete with wholesome-looking thirty-something testimonials ("things got kinda hot" chirps one preppie-looking young man, "I just love the Twister" giggles one young lady), and a promise of "discreet shipping", the ad went something like this: "Our Most Powerful Vibrator: the NEW TROJAN TWISTER + FREE Shipping + FREE Gift.  Pleasure...with a twist: 5 speeds + 3 pulse patterns + 4 unique twistable positions = Customizable Pleasure!  A Great Value – Only $59.99 (regular $76.97)"  Well, I may be showing my age, but I think it's a bit disgusting on Saturday night primetime (I never really did get over those tampon ads).  If I want porno I'll switch ... well, let's not go there.  OH2 ever to the rescue of the righteous, the email to AMC has already been sent.  What next?
