Nudity in advertisements

Nowadays, when I look at shown on television, I think the ad companies have come up with a simple formula.

If the product relates to a man, put one naked male model and a dozen semi naked female models in it. If the product, relates to a woman, put one woman and half dozen naked male models in it and viola, the ad is made.

For example, if the ad is of or , the man sprays it and half dozen women attach themselves to his body like metal to magnet. If he uses a shaving cream or Gillette razor, he needs at least 6 women to test if his skin is really smooth.

Same goes for female products. The lady uses a or a and steps out of her house, the electrician tumbles down the ladder, the car driver smashed into a tree, the vendor lets go off his balloons...this is quite okay but what happens is really silly...They tear off their shirts and follow her down the street........

Nowadays there's an ad about an energy drink that makes me cringe every time it is on air....and slap the male model hard to get the goofy look off his face.

There is advertisement after advertisement showing some really explicit stuff or men and women really drooling over each other. Do you think ad companies are out of ideas or is this because of demand and taste of the public...we, the audience?

The thing that annoys me is it over sexualizes everything and its on during the day when children can see it. I know they say sex sells but the line has to be drawn something because there is more to life than that.

The advertisement companies are vying with each other and in the race, we all get hit with shocks!

You know what I think you are right! The next time that I shave with a Gillette razor and spray with Deodorant X , walk out the door and no beautiful women come running I will immediately go see a Lawyer and sue for false advertising! Do you think that I would win my case ? emoticon :smile:

Sex sells. T ads are more explicit in countries outside the US. Here, ads like the sexy Carl's Jr. get heavily criticized and sometimes re-edited.

I have to agree with &AbbyG sex does sell, thus making it one of the best ways to catch an individual's attention.

I remember when I first worked as an engineer back in the 1970s and would see ads in technical magazines featuring bikini-clad models who had nothing to do with the equipment being sold. Things haven't changed.

It's a sad reflection on our society that such obviously sexualised adverts are allowed. I'm not a prude by any means but even I draw the line at overt displays of sexuality - especially in a TV advert.

Judging by what classes as fashion in this country, the demand of the public seems to be for that sort of stuff. (I'd rather my hard earned money, forked over against my will to pay the licence fee, didn't pay for that level of drivel, but I appear to be outvoted...)

I no longer fiddle with TV. It's a training ground of trouble, little more.

This is the kind of objectification that is leading to many crimes.
