    I just made my wife read your post because she's been full of accusations about the very same thing. Of course since she's never wrong, she typed in the following before I could get my seat back:
    Just admit to her you are really looking for alternative and new variety of chicks. And spice things up.

    I would say some of the ads are just a wide target market for the most likely demographic on this site and have nothing to do with individual posts and searches and stuff and have some sort of contract with the site itself.

    You need to come up to speed on proper Browser configuration and anti-AdCrap plug-ins.

    I rarely 'see' banner ads, haven't for several years.

    Start by installing Safari. Then Ghostery. And AdBlock. Tune to taste.

    It's also based on words located on the page that you're viewing. So if "jet ski" appears, you might see ads for private jets and ski destinations. Dating sites, well you're on your own there! lol
