Sex Sells.

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

i was having a thought the other day, --hear me out--

and i was wondering, how-- sex still manages to sell most products- or the [i]allure[/i] of sex. and i got to thinking... why is it then, there was a need for corporations/governments to regulate the production/distribution of pornography etc etc... and i got to thinking-- again-- that. if we could all view it, LEGALLY- if it was everywhere and SO blatant-- perhaps then, we MIGHT become totally [b]de-sensitized[/b] to it in a way- that the Allure of Sex- might not interest people as much anymore. y'know?

so, could it be-- that as long as it remains somewhat taboo - this goes for rutting itself, and porn- and sex related content-- yeah, as long as it remains somewhat taboo- that it will still serve to able to make money.

and i guess i got to thinking about all of this- (cos , in my job/industry, i am like you all, exposed to alot of advertising/design/marketing/promotion etc-- but its my job to develop more--)-- cos most advertising work i see- is more or less based on the [b]intangible qualities[/b] of a product.

[b]
example.
print ad for a watch.
yes, it looks great, its all technical.
its a fucking awesome product.
+
very attractive semi-naked woman/man wearing it.
= oh? so if i buy this- i will seem as attractive or attract some as attractive.

its dumb logic, but thats how most people are brainwashed.
its subconcious--- and lord, do not try to argue with me on how this shit works.
ive clogged up many a thread elsewhere on the topic-

so, what do you guys think?
am i just spouting off total shit-- or am i onto something?

( wether or not anything is solved or determined, by the end of this thread- i dont care- im just curious to see how other people think & feel, and if theyve picked up on this )...
