No Porn in Times Square?

This is the billboard that Pornhub was forced to take down after complaints from the DoubleTree Hilton hotel. 

The billboard featured the winning ad in Pornhub's "Safe for Work" campaign (the winner got a position as creative director at the firm).  What's interesting to me is that Times Square used to be nothing but peep shows and porn.  Now it's been "Disneyfied" but all the hotels in that area have in-room porn - it's their big money maker. So you can sell porn but you can't market porn even if there's no visual. 

And there's always some huge image of a woman's body scantily clad with no head or face bending over in your face.  This is offensive?  Oh, New York.

It's the caption: "All You Need is Hand" that got them busted.

That my good friends is a reference to masturbation. If it had read, "All you need is pussy or dick," then no one would have complained. Independent orgasms threatens the establishment which only approves of heterosexual fucking in the missionary postion.

As Carlin pointed out, the hotel makes extra money from in-room movie rentals.  If the guest is reminded, by the billboard, that Porn-Hub can be found on the internet and one can use the "free" high speed internet in the room, at no extra cost, to get their porn fix, the hotel loses money.  So maybe Doubletree saw it as a threat to its bottom line.

Reciprocal?

Does that mean if we complain about adverts from the DoubleTree Hilto, they would be removed automatically?
