I have disabled Google's targeted advertisement for reasons several weeks ago, and I have observed something really interesting : most of the advertisement I get now is for ... soft porn comics or for some kind of totally funny medical treatments against cancer ?! At first, I did not get that it had to do with my change of settings, so reinstalled browsers, run anti-viruses etc.. thinking I had gotten some kind of malware, but nothing of this kind, and this was on all my devices - so I realized this seems to be the default kind of advertisement I get when all "personal" settings in Google's ads system are disabled.

I wonder how much intention is put in this from Google - I mean, most of these ads are quite embarrassing on the long run, my kids are sometimes using my phone for a quick google search, I sometimes show something from my browser to other people, and coming across barely hidden explicit content is no fun. I would expect anybody confronted to this to switch on again the targeted advertisement, which is why I tend to think this may be intended...
