A little disappointed with the new advertising

I signed up for the "Hedo Life" e-mails on the Hedonism website and I am a little disappointed with the choice of models. Like the old SuperClubs ads, they depict Hedo as the playground of 20-somethings.

Maybe a middle ground of 40-something models might be more realistic?
I realize that Hedo is trying to expand it's demographics, but
the current pictures might be a put off to most.

Just saying...

100% agree with that. They do the same on Facebook.

I was at their site and clicked on a video on the right side and it took me to a youtube video. The person had been filming on the beach and then zoomed on a topless women with out her knowing it. I made a comment on the youtube video about how that is not to be done.

If the resort has started taking or allowing candid pics of guests and posting them on the Internet without their permission they are risking losing further bookings by just about anyone. They need to release a clarification if that is not what happened here, and an apology and promise to never let it happen again if that is what happened. If they have half a brain they will right this debacle instantly!

Edited to add:
Maybe just some clarification from management would be good, could just be a misunderstanding (As Face Down said below some do sign waivers!)

Not seeing what video you all are referring too so can't comment on that. But if it is from any of these special events that they have had recently ie. Miss Black Nude or the Black Tape Project those girls are signing waivers. Do not understand why you are surprised by what models they are using...they do just as every other company does.

Seems a great deal of the new ad efforts are tailored toward more ethnic markets as well . . .

The video I am referring to was made by a guest and wasn't part of a special event. I will try to find the video again and link it in another post. I found the video by clicking on the link that says sneak previews of the room. That takes you to a youtube video and along the right hand side are other videos about Hedo. I just went there and couldn't find the video. So maybe after my complaint to the person who posted it they took it down.

If you were on Youtube, all the videos to the right are in the "Related" category and could have put up by anybody. The reason you cannot find it now is they are random and Youtube cycles different videos that are related to the content which you were watching.
