Sex sells. But not only goods and services but ideas about sex. And the ideas about sex in mainstream media are often still traditional and conservatie. Slap on some naked female bodyness and the male audience will be transfixed. This simple formula might still work with a certain audience but it is becoming more and more old for a lot of people. They want more than just eternal cheesecake.
The holder's of the old-school grale of female eyecandy are faced with petitions and activism to ban pictures of scantly clad ladies in tabloids and bans on sexist ads. But is this really the best solution? Banning stuff usually makes things worse. Why not diversify instead? It would be much more fun to open up the idea of what symbolizes sex.
Just think of it: Would't it be much more rewarding to cultivtivate and enjoy sex and erotica equal with other human needs like food? Why should porn just be low culture trash and why can't a sex worker be as respected as a doctor? And why is sex stilly mystified as some weird black box? This has to change.
