Sex Sells #55

Again and again in the SEX SELLS series, we saw the producers of both male and female fragrances popping up with their blatantly sex advertising.

Sex Sells #51

Here in the UK, supermarket giants “Marks & Spencer” are accredited with “food porn advertising”.

Whereas M&S stay firmly on the classy side of not being too embarrassed if you are watching this […]
