    Yep. Turn on your TV, look at a billboard or pull up a page on the Internet. If Betty White is selling sex appeal at her age, you know someone decades younger can!

    Not effectively. The ad spot will get the attention and so will the beautiful bod, but no one will remember the product. :>)

    Not only sex but we sell ( our friends behind this ) our  mind also. Now we are not  humanbeing just like animals. Not mind , not thinking, not a soul  not resposibility to society. I hate live in media surroundings. I want to say friends you don't  encourrage  this.  A big dangerouse lose of moral  side in here.

    Yap sex sells, have you heard the news about the movie 3d sex movie in HonKong.

    The film brought in $HK2.78 million ($360,000) on its opening day last Thursday, eclipsing the previous first-day record set by James Cameron's 2009 3D sci-fi epic Avatar, which earned $HK2.63 million ($340,000) on its first day.

    Sure it does but it has its own lines of true effectiveness. Suggestions of sex and sexy are far better received by a broader marketing group than just all out sex which leaves nothing to the imagination.  I guess you could say that is the line between sensuality and pornography in America.  It's human nature.

    Indeed it does. We have to realize what triggers men and woman's responses, and sexuality definitely intrigues both.

    When I first joined HubPages seven months ago, I wrote a hub about this very idea, whether or not sex sells.  I thought I would just post a link to that hub.... this is my response to whether or not sex sells;

    actually, sex cannot be sold for it is an instinctive action that happens between males and females.  While, there are still lots of people treated sex as trades...

    That's a duh question. Of course it does. Every where you look sex is there. It helps sell everything.
