I'm sick of these condom ads. I really don't mind listening to ads in order to support Spotify, and I think it's really great I can listen for free. However, these Trojan advertisements are extremely irritating. I understand condoms need to be advertised too, but I believe there are more appropriate places than Spotify which has such a diverse userbase (sure, there are explict songs, but Spotify also offers kids songs and Christian music).
Honestly, I just don't like having these sexual suggestions and mental images shoved into my mind when I'm trying to go about my daily life and listen to music; it's uncomfortable, even when I'm alone. Of course, it's even more awkward when with other people. With that being said, I feel sorry for those who want to play music for their children or gospel music at a church gathering.
In addition, upon doing some research, I discovered that this isn't the first time Spotify has ran condom ads, and it almost always sparks compliants in the userbase. I can't understand why Spotify would keep bringing something back that their consumers have complained about over and over. It just seems like a short-term business model to me, rather than focusing on ethical decision making and CRM.
