A lingerie video advert labelled as ‘amateur porn’ has been banned due to its overly explicit content.

The controversial ad was played in Bra N Things stores and featured Australia’s Next Top Model winner Simone Holtznagel posing in Playboy underwear, reports The Sun.

The advert shows Simone clad in a variety of lace bras, see-through pants and stockings, and features a few, pretty provocative close-ups.

However, a series of complaints to the Australian Advertising Standards Bureau (AASB) forced the brand to pull the adverts.

One person was clearly ‘thinking of the children’:

This was in an ordinary public place, with children and families there, why should they be confronted with it in a shopping mall.

While another could barely contain their shock: 

They were not merely modelling the underwear, they were moving suggestively, gyrating and looking lasciviously at the camera – like a very amateur porn movie.

All I can say is the amateur porn they’re watching hearing about from friends must have pretty high production value…

Bras N Things said they ‘do not feel it breached any advertising standards’ but as a matter of respect the video has been replaced with pictures.

But it sounds like the AASB don’t agree with the retailer, saying:

The silent, moving image draws the eye of passers-by. The model is stroking her hair and moving her body suggestively. This amounts to a sexualised impact.

And how did Simone feel about the whole thing? Well, she posted a lengthy rant on Instagram.

Shout out to the prude who complained about my ‘vulgar’ and ‘amateur porn’ advertisement.

Honestly, it’s just soooo offensive to show a confident, sexy WOMAN in her LINGERIE in the window of a (plot twist) – LINGERIE STORE!!!!

How dare you sexualise my body. How dare you take a confident and carefree depiction of a normal, healthy womanly body, promoting women’s products to women, and deem it offensive.

Do not impress your insecurities on me, whether physical or sexual.

I don’t think she liked it being taken down…
