    Do you think the use of sex in advertising works? does it make the product seem better than you originally thought? have you ever bought anything after seeing an advert for it which used sex as an aide? Please help, I would appreciate any commments for my dissertation. Cheers!

    I think it depends what exactly you are advertising. most adverts have a link to sex these days anyway.

    It certainly draws more attention to whatever is being advertised, I'm not sure about whether it enables it to seel more of the product though.

    It depends on the product; I doubt Stanna would've sold many stair-lifts if Thora Hird had been draped over one wearing a bikini covered in grease.

    But what's the deal with cars + women though? Why do they have to go hand in hand?? I'm a girl and love cars but everytime I see an advert/magazine with a car there's some tart drapped all over it.

    Most cars are too bland looking to attract any attention without some **** stuck to the bonnet.

    Good point, it's no surprise that Jaguar and Mercedes don't usually require such, ahem, 'selling tactics'.

    Oh yes definitely, how else did Sven Goron Erikson i.e. 'Mr Burns from the Simpsons' manage to sell so many copies of his autobiography? By having his handsome mug on the cover, obviously. :rolleyes:

    Two of the most memorable adverts ever were when they launched Superleague.

    They had a picture of several Rugby (League) players totally naked with just rugby balls covering their vital area. This was at around the time of all the B.S.E. hype.

    The caption read "Beef on the bone is back on the menu".

    The second one was of two rugby players in the shower with one looking at the other, the caption read:

    "How was it for you?"

    They were posted on billboards all over England.

    Needless to say this second one chalked up loads of complaints but it was hilarious nevertheless.
