New Calvin Klein Ad Draws Heat: The advertisement appearing on the back covers of the November Esquire and the December Playboy show a muscular 20-year-old man clad only in briefs, his legs spread wide to show off his crotch. "This is nothing more than pornography," said Donald Wildmon, leader of the American Family Assn., which protested previous ads for jeans bearing the New York designer's name that showed teen-age models in provocative poses. That ad campaign, begun last August, was dropped because of protests by Wildmon's group and others. Wildmon said his organization will ask consumers to boycott Klein products. The designer did not return calls for comment.
