What Does Sex Sell?

  • August 3rd @ 20:10 Edinburgh
  • Men are sexual predators and women are sex objects – or so advertisers tell us. Sexy themes have been used in advertising for decades based on the notion that sex sells. From yoghurt ads to shampoo, from perfume to fast food – these ads are ubiquitous and pasted in mainstream media.  Researcher Kat Rezai (Edinburgh Napier University) broadens this debate to ask: what do sexy ads really sell?
