Manhunt in Times Square

Hookup site brings Gay erotica to the world's most famous intersection

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Gay hookup site Manhunt is making another splash this week, with three sexy billboard ads in New York City's Times Square. The Gay social media giant is advertising its new mobile campaign.

The new billboards are located near the southeast corner of Broadway and West 47th Street, where hundreds of thousands of tourists pass every day through 'the crossroads of the world.' Although the ads do not display blatant nudity, they do feature shirtless hunky males that some tourists have complained are too X-rated.

The ads are scheduled to remain through New Year's Day.

This isn't the first time Manhunt has been deemed not 'family-friendly.' In November 2011, some parents were upset with Manhunt's risqué ad in Los Angeles, which was similar to the ones that recently appeared in New York.

Manhunt's Jason Harvey says that the site and the advertising agency, Lamar Advertising, received a number of complaints regarding the billboard soon after it went up. A representative for the agency said the company took measures to ensure the ad would 'not be within 500 feet of schools, churches, playgrounds, etc.'

Last year, Manhunt put up a similar billboard in the same exact spot that reportedly was seen by more than one million people who attended New York City's iconic New Years Eve celebration (not to mention the tens of millions who watch the ball drop on TV).

In an ironic twist, one of this year's Manhunt ads happens to be right next to a billboard for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons).
