15 Ads That Prove Sex Sells... Best?

6) Lynx Body Wash

And of course, what better way is there to sell men's body wash then with a sexy woman, slick and wet, in the shower? This print ad is for Lynx body wash.


Talk about gettin' dirty....


7) Carl's Jr. Hamburgers

Who could forget the infamous Paris Hilton ad? Remember Paris in a bikini washing a Bentley while eating a Carl's Jr. famous burger?

Doesn't everyone eat grease dripping burgers while washing their cars?


8) Milk

What about this Milk Gives ad that was displayed all over Canada to inform the public of the health benefits of drinking milk?

It's an eye-catching way to show the "benefits" of drinking milk.



9) PETA Fruits

Even PETA seems to believe that sex sells. This television commercial promotes the purchase of fruits and veggies. Who knew that buying produce could be such a turn on?

Along with saving animals, one fur coat at a time, PETA is apparently a good judge of melons too.

Or what about the newest PETA campaign.


And who better to promote the cause than America's favorite Playboy bunny...naked?


10) PUMA Clothing

Pumas KneelingPumas Kneeling

There is really nothing to say that can add to this ad. Well, personally, I think they took "Sex Sells" just a little too far.

Wow

Who is that model in the purple Secret Embrace push-up? Her face is stunning, sort of like Jill Goodacre done right or a blond Carol Alt. Head and shoulders above the other Victoria's Secret models, who are quite blah. The rest of her isn't bad, either.

zzzzzzzz

Yeah, we know Volvo's are driven by dummies but will they fall for the knob on that one?

As for the other images - nah doesn't interest me. Couldn't give a XXXX for what ever it is they think they're advertising.

S&M images are guaranteed to make me boycott the product - if I can be arsed to pay attention to what it is.

The fifth one/coffee ad

I don't see how that would sell anything.  It looks more like bugs than coffee beans or two people playing in a big pile of $hit

Whi is the model in the purple...

It is Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, best known for her current work with Victoria's Secret Lingerie. Her friends call her Ale. ; )

She's a looker for sure..

Oh, well

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, when I Googled images of her, it was rather disappointing. Other pics don't look as fresh-faced. And she looked more supermodel anorexic than here, with her buff-looking midsection. It's a great shot, sort of like a 21st century version of the classic 1970s Cheryl Tiegs pink bikini poster. Pity the picture isn't bigger.

Sex marketing: More hot men sorely NEEDED!

I actively avoid buying products that use sex to sell because frankly, except for the vacuum ad & the condo ad, it's only catering to to the horny male demographic. Even though those 2 guys are really hot in the vacuum ad, the fact that they're using sex to sell it makes me think it's an inferior product because the ad tells me nothing about the product. I use buying guides to help me shop, not sex. I'm sick of this crap being shoved in my face, it annoys the shit out of me. I don't read magazines (minus the ones at the doctor's office due to boredom) or watch TV because I'm tired of paying for lackluster content & articles & programming overloaded with ads.

But should I find myself in a dull-witted, horny state & in the mood to actually look at hot ads, for fuck's sake, give us some hot men for a change dammit! USA FTL on marketing to the female demographic especially on TV (& I don't even want to get started on those ridiculously unrealistic 'sexy girl/homely loser guy' scenarios). Especially lingerie ads, why the hell is this stuff being marketed to men? If I want to buy lingerie, show me what a hot stud I can attract by wearing it! & like the other guy mentioned, I want to buy sex after seeing these ads, not the products. I suddenly find myself wanting to do a search on hot male underwear models... Mrrowwrr!

To the person who posted -

To the person who posted - More men needed in marketing... I agree with you on everything you said.  The reason though that more women are used in sex marketing is because men are really homophobic in our society, they wouldnt want to buy a product that was advertised for women as easily as women accept it (since its more socially acceptable/desirable for women) So when it comes to marketing they target a larger audience because they can get most womens attention (hey you can look hot like her if you buy this, and for men, hey look at this half naked chick).  Also Victoria secret's ads are aimed at men too when using women because they want men to buy their lingery for their girlfriends.... and women well, they still buy in because they want to look like the models..... (most women, im like you though, i laugh at the sex sells because i am way too aware of it, i've done some studies in marketing strategies...)

The Puma ad is real I've

The Puma ad is real I've seen it before, there was a bit of controversy over it. What confuses me is how it got there...she must have spat cos it wouldn't have naturally ended up as low down and as far back as that. Yeah. Thats the only thing that troubles me when I see it.

PUMA ad and more

And thats the kind of world we live in, seeling their sould to get some money. Disgusting. And that ad (Puma) can't be real because I think showing that and relating it to semen would be more than the studios would allow and if thye did,...might as well stick a cock and balls out there for all to see cause thats just as gross and repulsive.

ARE ALL WOMEN TRADING SEX FOR SOMETHING?

I THINK BASICALLY ALL WOMEN TRADE SEX FOR MEN'S HARD EARNED POSSESSIONS {PROTECTION,HOUSE,CARS ETC ETC}. LOVE IS JUST A TRICK TO MAKE THESE WOMEN FEEL A LITTLE BETTER ABOUT IT.

THAT'S WHY I LIKE STRIPPERS AND HOES..THEY ARE NOT LYING ABOUT IT. WOMEN USE SEX AS A CURRENCY AND MEN USE CURRENCY FOR SEX.

MEN WANT SEX WOMEN WANT CURRENCY.

IT JUST SUCKS THAT WOMEN LOVE SEX TOO BECAUSE MEN ALWAYS LOOSE OUT..MONEY,PROPERTY ETC....TOO BAD THERE ARE NO GOOD SUBSTITUTES FOR WOMEN AND SEX...JUST WAIT TILL WE FIND THOSE SEX ALIENS...LOL...

Puma ad is fake

You may have seen it before, but it's still fake. Puma even tried to threaten legal action againt the magazine that ran "the discovery" of the ad. The story is, it was run in South America, but Puma refutes that.
