What effects sex has on advertising.

Extracts from this document...


What effects sex has on advertising Today whenever adverts come on the television they normally always insinuate some sort of sexual nature whether we catch the drift or not, in almost every single advert there is a hint of sex. Most oftenly they are obliviously but some of them aren't. Some of us hack into our sub-conscience brain and then from they're on think about it and then get the gist of it. In some ways a sub-conscience is good like it can teach us bad from good but in some cases what we think is good can actually be bad. The use of sex in advertising has become a major selling method in the society we live in today. It began sixty years ago when a beautiful young woman introduced the first windproof lighter and a new wave of advertising emerged - The Pinup Girl. She advertised everything from lighters to laundry soap. Darren Brown proves that there is a part of our active brain that we cannot get into; this is the sub-conscience part. Ideas are fed into this area and are unknowingly used. This can be good; it can give us an idea that hurting people is bad: but it could also be bad; it could tell us we need to have sex before the legal age. ...read more.


Men and very often perverts would love to see a women wear this as it says expect everything, they would think, oh here we go, someone's asking for it. I am very appalled at this advert because perverts use anything at all to become aware of what women want and quite frankly this advert is advertising what women want SEX. This advert5 is supposed to advertising perfume not sex. Anyway, this woman in my opinion is ugly. I do not find her at all attractive. This women looks like she has very short hair, kind of like men hair. Next, we have her face; she has a sort of smirk on her face, sort of saying come on boy I'm waiting. But I think that her face is very masculine. We then come onto her body; this lady looks like she has no breasts. Otherwise she is very flat chested. She is wearing a white suit jacket. She has her arms crossed just below her breasts and looks like she is waiting for something. Something else that I noticed was her hands, her hands are very big and her fingers are very chunky, also her fingernails are not beautifully manicured like most models hers are all brittle and bitten. ...read more.


The whole beach is watching and then there is a slogan which says 'MARMITE you either love it or hate it'. This could mean just what it says but it could have a sort of 2 meaning type thing, this could mean that there is a homosexual gay lover thing going on here. So many adverts today use homosexuallatly that they use them like they are going out of fashion, like the expersion says. This is not good for our children to grow up into. Many people don't really relise how bad these adverts are. They can go right in, like into their sub-conscience brain without even knowing about it or speaking about. Such simple things like Barbie can grow in their sub-conscience without even knowing. You think that when they say, Barbie really tall, Barbie's really slim, Barbie's got big boobs and all the rest of it, that's just the end of it? Well no it isn't it is now in there sub-conscience brain and will be there forever or until the next time that they think about. In about the year 2015 there will be loads of Barbie figures walking around! Why couldn't they just make Barbie fat, ugly, short legs, small boobs? Such simple things like that could grow and unravel to such extreme measures that they will no be able to blank out this picture in there brain, be like Barbie, be like Barbie.
