"Do you have what it takes to be the Creative Director of the world's No. 1 adult website?"

That's the ballsy challenge from Pornhub, which recently launched a contest to create work-safe ads for the adult video site. 

"Traditionally, porn has been a taboo subject—but the fact is, over 35 million people visit Pornhub.com every day," notes the challenge's creative brief. "How do we reach the next 35 million? We need a national advertising campaign that can be channeled through mainstream media."

All entries must be "G-rated" and safe for work, although the results so far have been so drenched in innuendo that they probably don't qualify as either, as bros around the world let their creative juices flow.
