Sex advertising has been a topic of intense debate for more than a decade, with major players such as Facebook and Google facing the backlash of parents and social media users.
But now a new category of sex advertisement has popped up on the Android market: programmatic advertising.
Read moreRead moreA programmatic ad is a type of digital advertisement that can be downloaded onto an Android device that includes code that instructs the phone to download a specific app.
Programmatic ads are a new way of monetising ads and advertising for products and services.
In some cases, the ad can take the form of a direct download of the app from Google Play.
In others, it can be embedded in an ad that’s posted to Google Play or other websites.
For example, a sex ad for a sex toy advertises an app that lets users download and install sex toys.
Google Play’s app store has a section called ‘Sex Toys’, which is a special section that has been set up to allow users to browse for apps that offer sex toys in an app-like interface.
The section includes an app called “SexToy” that lets people download and stream porn videos to their Android device.
But a Google Play user named ‘Fido’ uploaded a video to YouTube in which he claimed to have downloaded the app for $20.
“Fido” uploaded the video and the description of the ad to Google’s YouTube channel, saying: “Hey guys, this is my first time buying sex from Google.
It’s really easy to install, and you can pay in a couple of clicks.
So if you are into porn, this app is for you.
And I’m very excited.”
The video went viral and received more than 2.7 million views.
Users have been posting comments about the sex ad, asking how Google Play could possibly support such content.
“They could have taken a more careful look at their monetisation practices and changed some of their practices so they could be more accountable for what they do with ads,” said Lisa LeBlanc, CEO of marketing firm Brand Keys, which has advised major ad networks.
“It’s a very easy way to get noticed and you don’t even need to be a major advertiser to get attention.”
The issue of advertising for sex is not unique to Android.
Google’s Android app store is filled with apps for a range of different products and businesses, including massage and hair removal services, fitness equipment and fitness products, and travel, fitness and wellness services.
Google has also been caught advertising in the sex industry in the past.
In 2011, Google was accused of promoting a sex app called Virtual Sex, which allowed users to search for “virtual sex” and download “virtual sexual aids”.
The company denied the claims and said it had removed the app.
A spokesperson for Google said: “We do not condone any form of sexual activity in any form.
The ads and the videos that were posted were not endorsed by Google.
They were uploaded by users who found the ads or videos objectionable.”
A spokesperson from the US Department of Justice told ABC News that the Department of Commerce is investigating whether the app violated the FTC Act.
The US Attorney’s Office in the District of Columbia also confirmed to ABC News the investigation into Virtual Sex.
“The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has been conducting a review of Virtual Sex and is aware of the investigation,” the US Attorney Office said in a statement.
“We encourage Google to cease and desist from engaging in any further promotion of Virtual Sexual and will cooperate with the investigation.
