Does Sex Really Sell?



I don’t personally think sex sells, but sexy sure does. I get e-mails from a good friend in Arizona occasionally that are sometimes sexually explicit. Close-ups of female body parts don’t do much for me anymore…I guess it is a Baby Boomer thing. Send me a full shot of a beautiful woman wearing revealing (but not too revealing) clothing and I go ga ga. All sanity is lost and I am subject to buy the product.

About the time a man matures and learns to respect beautiful women as being much more than just objects, he finds himself out of the running because of age. Yes, it is true – men take forever to mature. At least this man finds the last statement true. If I had known then what I know now – never mind, this is a mental exercise in futility.

He was just saying,
