JDate and Porn. Again?

do they makeIn what has got to be either a case of strong editorial independence, or an instance of journalistic wrath caused by unpaid advertising bills, Haaretz has just busted JDate for using porn actresses in its banner ads.

Hungarian porn model Kari Gold, 18 (pictured to the right) claims she has no idea how her photo came to be used by JDate in publicity banners for its dating services. She says however that she has a boyfriend and is not in fact looking for “a Jewish husband from a good family.” Unless he’s a film producer of course. Also featured in the publicity campaign was adult actress Devon Sweet.

MatchNet Israel CEO Ehud Levy pretty much admitted it was a mistake. What on earth is going on at JDate anyway? And what’s with Haaretz skewering its single largest online advertiser, twice in a row? I get the feeling there’s something up over there. If anyone has any clue, please let me know – I can be reached at ck@jewlicious.com.
