There have even been some playful attempts to make sure that couples are doing their best, such as JCPenney's "Stay out of the Doghouse," campaign which calls men to buy jewelry for their women. But the most recent one that I have seen, is advertising for Trojan condoms, in which the man gives the gift of gonorreha.
