Would you buy a sculptured lamp of a naked woman that lights up from the Ass when plugged in?

Over the years, people have been taken on a sexual freedom journey that has contested sexual standards. Top brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, PETA, AXE, Sketchers, Dentyne Ice, Perrier Tom’s Ford clothing, Armani, Nissan, and Dolce & Gabbana's tantalized audiences with racy sexually charged advertisements and manufacturers of everything from cars to cigarettes featured pretty women in their advertising, hoping to boost sales. More recently, we have even seen Marks & Spencer produce sassy advertisements for its food, a style labeled “food porn”. It would be easy to think that sex is the key to selling almost anything. What is your take on this?

Disclaimer: I have a Marks and Spencer Sparks Card. Anti-disclaimer: Their offers are crap.

Are you stoned, or this some kind of weird SEO spam? I get your point about sex being used in advertising to sell cars, toothpaste, etc, but you are seriously incoherent in alluding to "food porn". The "porn" element of that term merely refers to the lavish production values of some food oriented media productions - magazines, books, videos etc, which mirror the techniques used to produce actual pornography - viz: glossy paper, brightly lit, colourful high-res photography, breathless accompanying prose, etc. If you think a Marks and Sparks ad for a chicken, pancetta and mushroom pasta bake is (truly) "sexy" then you need some CBT badly.

Is this "sexy"? Freud might say so, I guess.

Getting back to the topic, there is a local hipster curry house that has a lamp of a sexy black lady in a basque with a bulb inside that must be 1950s. I think the word is 'kitsch". It's kind of like a cigar-store Indian in terms of cultural offensiveness. or those American things I believe are called "lawn jockeys". I would never buy a naked woman lamp whose ass lights up.

@Cassie Bee,
I don't think you are using the phrase "food porn" correctly. And, I am not really sure what question you are asking.

When you are creating an advertisement, it is a good idea to attach your product to something that people like. Most people like sex. Using sex to sell products seems like a good idea to me, and obviously it works. Advertisements also use family, and kids, and patriotism, and wealth and strength to sell products.

To answer the initial question I wouldn't buy that particular product... but I don't have any problem with someone offering it.

Using sex to sell kittens? I would have never thought of that.

I'm buyin it if it's a bayonet mount.

"A bayonet mount ... is a fastening mechanism consisting of a cylindrical male side with one or more radial pins, and a female receptor with matching L-shaped slot(s) and with spring(s) to keep the two parts locked together. The slots are shaped like a capital letter L with serif (a short upward segment at the end of the horizontal arm); the pin slides into the vertical arm of the L, rotates across the horizontal arm, then is pushed slightly upwards into the short vertical "serif" by the spring; the connector is no longer free to rotate unless pushed down against the spring until the pin is out of the "serif"."

I've been looking to add to my collection.

@jespah,
by having the light come out of the but-tocks it would appear that the goal of this lamp is not higher art actually Id doubt that the sculptor would want to be signing his or her name to the casting base. Perhaps if she carried a lamp, or had a crown of lights, otherwise I would not display it at my window like Mr MCloud did in Christmas STory.

@Cassie Bee,
My take is that, if you actually are a human being, rather than a bot, that you are one of the world's biggest fools. Sex is the key to selling everything

The Italian coffin and funeral materials makers Cofani Funebri know this, as their celebrated calendars show.

I posted a picture above, but had second thoughts and deleted it, as I got worried it was a bit too racy. Then I couldn't replace it with a less nude one, because of editing time expiry. I hope this one isn't too shocking:
