Sex Sells

My roommate tells me I'm over reacting to the candy cigarettes thing. Then that lead us to a discussion on toy guns and me wondering how can such a deadly weapon be made into a toy?
doesn't it make it easier for you to pick up a real gun when your older?

In between our discussion she said: eshda3wa you should have become a psychologist, or a lawyer, something that would allow you to talk, reason, and argue. I know you love it, why didn't you?

Because everybody around me told me there is no future in it, that my best bet would be dentistry.

That might be true, but look at fozia drai3 for example! She made such a huge name for herself and she makes alot more than we were dream of making.

Yeah but fozia is a SEXologost.
She talks about something taboo, something that grown men and women still freaking
giggle about in our society!

Portray sex on anything and its gonna sell big
sex always sells
Anything from cheese to cars.

don't you think?

I disagree, fozia dree3 does not make more money than Successful famous doctors with private clinics. I do agree that the cigarettes candy is so wrong, but not sure about the guns.

because it's a taboo it would sell :P

no, because that's not applicable to other countries.

But what I'm saying it's not the sex that sells, it's just women, again "objectification" of women.

So it's the product enhancement. you don't see a man next to a car and go like oo sexy i'm gona buy it. They dont care what women think , it's what men want, male-dominated society. We're doomed :P

Hmm, Well i believe you should do what you want o do.. I mean if you love something and have a chance, then do it.. I don't like it when people tell us what we should do, like you should be an engineer/doctor.. etc.. I think any profession, job you like is no different than any other,,

I don't know why people giggle about those stuff in our society..

LoL at the picture, I remember when that film came out .. Made a hype in India,,

LOOOL JISM! I love that movie's name, that and "ajnabee" :P ofcourse sex sells, even the cola and many other drinks' bottles are made curvy so that it attracts people, basically because nobody says no to sex, it's human nature and it's abused unfortunately

Ofcourse sex sells ! ASk Larry Flynt bout it :D ... BTW Bipasha Basu on that poster looks "hot" ...

i guess the 'sex sells' approach is more appealing to those that have minimal exposure to it as a concept, because their curiosity leaves them wanting more. however, i find that comedy sells more than sex. i find commercials that are comedic are more effective than those that have a sexual theme...may have branched off the subject a bit, but mrmf had to say that

true! sex sells

wishing you all the best in whatever you choose to be in life :)

April 2, 2008 at 2:18 PM  

Yeah, especially to men;p

IT is true for sure, Sex does have its level of appeal but it also has to be tasteful for certain products.. :)

April 2, 2008 at 5:33 PM  

I think you are right.

April 2, 2008 at 5:45 PM  

Hmm, yes true, I have to agree. Sex sells. A LOT. But there's "clever" use of sex and there is just the hands down perverted, annoying, in your face "blond" sex. That turns me off.

April 2, 2008 at 6:26 PM  

hahah yes. sex ALWAYS sells basically anything!! lol

I wrote what I believe a powerful comment, but decided to delete it at the very last second, kheft Allah yz3al 3lay..

you can always talk to your patient, it's not like they can go anywhere once they sit on that chair!!

sex and cheese? id like to see that one sell *pukes*

April 2, 2008 at 11:14 PM  

Yup i think so too ! ;>

Fawzia Drai3 = guts !

Bravo 3alaiha....and also to the women who she sometimes interviews. I would never ever have the guts to do anything close to that.

April 2, 2008 at 11:16 PM  

omg wa3 wa3 sex and cheese should not be used in the same sentence

April 2, 2008 at 11:23 PM  

here everyone who anyone want more, listen carefully, however they claim not to be interested o ashya2.. like fouzia dree3 most people hate her boldness, but they watch her show... joke about her and listen to her advices for people.. hot topic sure take #1 best seller

I agree wholeheartedly. I mean people complain about Nancy Ajram and Elissa and yet they cannot realize it is us asking for sexual exploits in their video clips and concerts. I mean Nancy would never, say, made those plastic surgeries if people noticed her and her voice during her first album.

Sex sells...and is hypocrisy.

Sex Sells? Yes it Does hahaha! And sometimes you wonder why

April 3, 2008 at 12:25 PM  

i LOVE that woman to bits!!!

April 8, 2008 at 2:06 AM  

sex does sell, unfortunately. It is, however completely exploitative of such a private act that this has become so predominant in modern advertising. Taking that approach is always easy, but cheap.
