Advertising is vulgar by its nature in coercing certain actions on the part of the audience.

Oh you mean sexually obscene. Well in the US such things are already regulated and often prohibited on certain outlets. However, if an adult would like obscene materials, advertising included, then they have the right, as those who produce it have the right.

In the US today "political speech" is often more obscene that sexual depravity.

"anything to make a buck"

I think the US is behind the times and there are too many censors, but also, companies are just dumb when they do some of things they do just to make a bit of dosh. However, dosh pays bills, so can you blame them?
