It made him feel small

You can only take so much of this:

“Sexually, do you feel so inadequate that the inability to satisfy your partner leaves you demoralised and depressed at how little you have to offer?

“Your lack of confidence and low self esteem is making you unattractive to others. Any partner you have is simply turned off by your small size and the chances of attracting anyone else are zero — you’re just too scared to reveal what little you have. It’s a vicious circle.”

And it wasn’t email, either. It was actual snail mail, or whatever it’s called in the UK, and the fellow struck back:

[H]e began receiving the Life Healthcare four page mailing on his doorstep on a monthly basis so he complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The ASA noted the man had not requested the mailing… the personal nature of the suggestions — especially when coupled with the more general graphic and sexually explicit sexual references — were likely to cause serious offence and breached the Code.

Then again, what fun is there in sexual references that are not sexually explicit?

The ASA banned the ad and said the company must suppress the complainant’s personal data.

Perhaps it was Mr S of Bromsgrove, a Freemason and prospective Tory MP.
