London, Feb 7 : A UK strip club has been banned from using a raunchy billboard ad, which shows a scantily-clad woman holding a foaming bottle of champagne.
Grace in North Street, Brighton, has been ordered by the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) not to use the provocative poster, after seven people complained that the ad was inappropriate and some said it could cause offence to children.
The advert shows a kneeling blonde model in underwear with popped cork flying through the air above the words 'where fantasy becomes reality'.
"Although we considered that children were unlikely to understand the sexual imagery, we considered that many adults would see the woman holding the bottle as an allusion to a sexual act," The Sun quoted an ASA spokesman, as saying.
"We concluded that the image was likely to cause serious or widespread offence and was inappropriate for display on a poster," the spokesman added.
Grace removed the poster and apologised, saying no offence was meant.
