Deletion of the Consumer culture section[edit]

Rjensen, why did you delete the Consumer culture section and replace it with the KamaSutra condoms in India section? How is that an improvement? And why do you think the KamaSutra condoms in India section belongs so high in the article? Flyer22 (talk) 22:35, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

The old section had Less than one sentence on the topic of sex in advertising. It reads like a student paper on a different topic. This new addition is based on two scholarly studies --One in a scholarly journal and one in the major University press book, and covers India-- a very important part of the world. And it really is about sex in advertising Rjensen (talk) 09:16, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
Now that I truly look at the section you replaced, I see that it was somewhat off-topic. The last paragraph could have been kept, but it seemed liked filler. Still, I don't think that the KamaSutra condoms in India section should be as high as you placed it in the article. Flyer22 (talk) 09:36, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
Okay I changed the KamaSutra to become a subhead of "history". Rjensen (talk) 09:38, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
That's better. And, yeah, looking at the Consumer culture section that was there, you worked on it here and here, but the section was hopeless in that state. Flyer22 (talk) 09:41, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
