I have dropped out of the Post a Day challenge, It’s not that I don’t enjoy writing or that I don’t have anything to write about. Lately, I have been focusing on my business website and building clientele there.
Don’t stress, I haven’t forgotten about my faithful follower(s) here.
I conducted a small experiment on this site and now have the results. I was conducting a “Picture a day” of myself and posting, as you can see those are gone. Along with the pic a day, I was posting about random items that I found interesting.
Of all the posts, my most hits were on my SEX posts. This only goes to show that sex sells.
Calvin Klein among others has this figured out! Use sex in your advertisements, and you will get noticed.
The only post that even came close to my sex postings were the SEO (Search Engine Optimization.)
With that in mind, I think I should write a book about SEO using random sexual pictures to keep it noticed.
OK, so I’m not even going to ACT like this surprises me or I am the first person to notice this.
Wikipedia even notes ...In 1885, W. Duke & Sons inserted trading cards into cigarette packs that featured sexually provocative starlets. Duke grew to become the leading cigarette brand by 1890…

So, is this sex sells a bad thing? That is really a question only you can answer for yourself.
Personally I think business wise it would depend on what you were selling. But for most items that are for personal use, how can it hurt? Almost everyone likes seeing a young lady with her chest hardly covered, oil to make the light reflect and the sense on her face she is about ready to explode.
Kinda makes me wonder what Charmin would do with their “sex appeal” advertising? I have some good idea if they want to contact me about them!
