One thought on “Selling Sex Instead of Clothes

  1. I have recently been thinking about the question “why does sex sell”? A part of me believes that it could be due to the sheer pleasure or excitement erotic images can give someone, but I never chose to point the finger at primal urges. This to me was a very eye opening statement that I had never thought of previously. While some might think that the statement was obvious, a part of me feels as though we are so developed and evolved as a species we would surely be able to fight these urges…right?
