Woman kicked out of church over ad

The star of an erectile dysfunction awareness commercial in Australia has been kicked out of her church until the ad comes off air.

Libby Ashby told Melbourne-based radio station 3AW she had been "disfellowshipped" from her local congregation after appearing in the ad.

In the cheesy ad, she uses her screen husband’s penis for a leg up to reach a biscuit from a high shelf while a voiceover says: "Take the right step towards erection problems."

"They have said I would not be reinstated until the ad comes off the air," Ashby said, while not identifying which church she attends.

Ashby, a single mother, said she knew when she was filming the AMI ad that it was in poor taste.

But she said she had taken the job because of the money.

"My Visa was calling out for mercy," she said. "It was against my better judgment to do it. I don’t like to offend people."
