Ashley Madison Makes A "Family Man?"

So, right now, I"m seriously disgusted and this post might be a bit of a rant. Sorry in advance. Except, no, I"m really not sorry.

So I ran out yesterday afternoon - to vote, to pick up diapers - that type of thing. Of course I had my kids in the car; I have Sirius XM in my car and I decided to turn on MSNBC to listen to the Election coverage.  Within seconds of turning MSNBC on I hear a commercial for I'm not linking to it y'all - if you want to check it out - google it. It's complete sleaze. 

Anyway, if you don't know, that site is one where folks can go looking for other folks to have affairs with. For MARRIED FOLKS to look for other MARRIED FOLKS to have a secret rendezvous with. Now listen, I"m not stupid - I know this shit happens all the time. It's not my business what you or anyone else does behind closed doors. I don't care - until you start throwing it in my face and subjecting my children to this crap!

So, it's not so much the website that  is causing my uproar. I don't like it, but whatever...the radio ad that I heard is the problem.

My jaw literally dropped when I heard this coming through my car speakers:

"Ashley Madison Man, that's who I am. Workin' hard for my famileeee. Ashley Madison Man, does what he can. Ashley Madison, helps me stay at home. Now I can mix business with pleasure."

Wait, what the f&ck?

You've got to be kidding me.

A) Is this ad a total freaking joke? Who comes up with this crap? Guys (or gals!) - if you think cheating on your spouse through an organized website like Ashley Madison makes you a "family man" you need to seek help, immediately. 

B) Hello Sirius XM - I realize that you are private radio - because I pay a bill twice a year for my subscription. I would gladly pay more for you to get this scum off of your airwaves.

C) Don't advertise this crap during peak times when families are in their vehicles going to organized sporting events, running errands, church, etc.

I listen to my Sirius XM 99.9% of the time and I have NEVER heard this commercial until today when I tuned into MSNBC for the first time. I don't know if it is MSNBC or Sirius but either way, I'm disgusted.

I feel like this radio ad is a complete slap in the face. Ashley Madison's "family man" is working hard at cheating on his unsuspecting wife while she is at home busting her ass taking care of the kids, the home, and her "family man."

This radio ad is crap & I'm pissed at Sirius for running it.

Am I the only one who finds this absurd and insulting?

I'm pouring my heart out.


  1. That's utterly disturbing. I won't look it up but it just infuriates me.

  2. That is literally sick! I didn't even know that type of thing existed. Of course I know people cheat on their significant others but an ENTIRE organization dedicated to it?

    And then to ADVERTIZE it on public forum??

  3. I first heard of this website years ago on a talk show. I think it's sad and disgusting. I've never heard it advertised anywhere but the fact that it is being advertised as a good wholesome product is appalling. There is nothing "familyish" about cheating. It's sick that someone actually created an organization to aid men in cheating on their spouses. I know it happens BUT is it really necessary to create a business promoting it? I don't know how they sleep at night knowing that they are not only helping to break up a family but also potentially introducing dangerous things like STD's to the unknowing spouse. EEERRR! I'm done lol

    Good Post!

  4. I didn't go to the link, but I have heard of it on a talk show before. I am just surprised they actually advertise it. It's not so much of a "secret" if you are putting it all over the place. I can't imagine "she" get's much business these days.

  5. Disgusting. I have a very personal history with being cheated on and that just makes me sick to my stomach. What is wrong with people?

  6. I actually saw this on TV! I think 60 Minutes or something. Crazy!!! And now they have freaking radio commercials...makes me ill...yet another reason i don't want any more kids...this country has lost all morals..scary!

  7. That is completely disgusting. And having a site devoted to it makes people think that hey, this must be okay because other people are doing it, too. Whatever happened to the sanctity of marriage???

  8. Wow! That is disturbing on so many levels! I can't believe they are even letting a company like that advertise on MSNBC. So wrong.

  9. Why would they think it was fine to run this, especially on a news channel? Effing ridiculous. I hope they pull that ad immediately. Or place it on one of the raunchy comedy channels.

  10. I must be sheltered and naive cause I've never heard of such a thing! Scary and a really sad commentary on sanctity of marriage. And MSNBC's discernment. Thanks for sharing this!

  11. I've never heard of this before nor did I go to the link. I think cheating is disgusting. It makes me sick to my stomach that people would cheat on their spouse. Obviously this site and people who would cheat have no respect for their spouce or their family at home. Good post! :)

  12. Unbelievable! I had never heard this before. It is a sad, sad thing, but I have to say I'm not totally surprised. So many things are readily available on the internet these days.... But I agree, they definitely don't need to advertise on primetime radio.
