New Ad for Las Vegas Suggests It's Great for Men Looking for a Gay Down-Low Connection: VIDEO


When the wife's away...


Visit Las Vegas, the tourism group behind the ad, writes: "Las Vegas means: no assumptions, no judgment, come as you are, be who you want and do what you like. When you visit Las Vegas, we encourage you to embrace who you are at your very core. A Las Vegas vacation will push your comfort zone and create unforgettable moments."

  1. If only it were that easy.

  2. The message in the ad is your right, no matter where you are. Too bad in many places you have to fight for it.

  3. I guess I didn't have the same take away from this ad that the headline in this posting suggests. Seems like a fun and lighthearted ad to me.

  7. The people behind Las Vegas are smart. It's always been about the money. And they won't give a fiddlers f*ck if One Million Moms or Two Gazillion Christians don't like the ad.

  8. Come on it's just a funny ad

  9. So what if a man wants to check into his hotel room with a dog? Or what if 3 men want to check into a hotel room? It's a slippery slope.

  10. Cheating on your spouse is always wrong.

  11. Lol "heteroflexible." I'll start using that the same week I refer to myself as a "cisgender male" instead of a guy. About the Wednesday after never.

  12. @ Petey - there was nothing to indicate they were spouses.

    Posted by: Mike in the Tundra | May 17, 2014 4:38:01 PM

  13. Apparently, heterosexuals just have no morals.

  14. @ Mike----the first guy was checking in with his wife who left.

    I agree with Petey but still liked the ad.

    What is the relationship between two consenting adults have to do with a man and his dog? You might sleep with your dog, but the rest of us will stick to an adult human partner of no direct blood relationship.

    Keep your sick mind to other websites like "Alternative". The rest of us are decent humans!

  16. This is making a mockery of the "born this way / it's a choice" debate.

  17. "Heteroflexible" is a gay pipe dream that can get you a room--in a hospital.

  18. Kind of cute....maybe Visit Las Vegas wants to up the ante. A few years ago the Vegas tourist board thought it would be a good idea to appear as a "family-friendly" destination. I guess that didn't work out too well. So it's back to "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Probably a wise move!

  22. I don't see no ring on that finger as they say

    Posted by: Jay M | May 17, 2014 6:27:20 PM

  23. She has a ring on the middle finger of her left hand, not the ring finger, so ... She's no wife.

  24. First, the straight couple isn't married, as pointed out by some commenters.

    Second, although I do think the commercial is cute, it does rely on the "gay men will have sex with any other man" stereotype. In the real world, there's no way the hot guy would have sex with the schlubby guy unless the hot guy is a prostitute. Having said that, I suppose the prostitute angle could be valid since we are talking about Vegas.

    Carry on.

  25. The guy walked kind of swishy to begin with so it was not a big shocker that clerk thought he was part of a gay couple.
