A new restaurant offers sexed-up dinners

A new restaurant offers sexed-up dinners | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

Funny Sex: Taiwan's sex-up restaurant offers food that look like male and female organs. 

After the success of a toilet-themed restaurant in Taiwan that became an idea syndicated throughout Asia, Taiwan is now offering another bizarre themed restaurant, this time themed on sex.

Most of the dishes are designed to look like something that is a variation on sexual organs and aimed at giving a whole new meaning to the term meat and two veg.

And invariably those foods that are not served up looking like they are something to do with sex are served in bowls that are either shaped like breasts or other private parts. Aimed mostly at young people, managers say that they are packed out every night and they are confident there is an appetite for more.

In the bathroom soap is dispensed from breast shaped dispensers and dinner guests can boost their numbers by inviting a sex doll to join them at the table, apparently to lighten the atmosphere while guest are waiting for food.

What do you think?

Nude Polish beauties posing with coffins (not a Halloween prank)【NSFW】 - ROCKETNEWS24 | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

When it comes to advertising, we can’t fully agree with the saying that “sex sells”, but we can’t deny the fact that a touch of sex appeal in commercials do have an effect in attracting the glances of many. Advertising and packaging featuring alluring ladies have been around since the 19th century, and have on many occasions sparked controversy, deliberately or not.

We’ve seen girls in skimpy outfits modeling for cars, sexy starlets promoting anything from perfume to apparel to even burgers. Just when we thought that such means of provocative advertising can no longer surprise us, some marketing geniuses from Poland gave us the kiss of death with their calendar featuring voluptuous beauties posing with coffins.

Pamela Anderson Ad Banned in the U.K., Deemed 'Sexist and ... | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

An ad for a web hosting company featuring Pamela Anderson has been banned by the U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority after is was deemed “sexist and degrading to women.”

The Dreamscape Networks ad features Anderson and another woman, clad in bikinis, frolicking in cream. The interlude is set up as the fantasy of a male employee during a meeting.  

Dreamscape Networks argued that the ad was not degrading, as it portrayed the female lead as the head of the business and the fantasy sequence was limited to the male employee’s imagination.

Ugh, such conflicting emotions! On the one hand, PETA is full of crazies who want us to care about the silent screams of fish as they’re about to be asphyxiated to become our Bouillabaisse. On the other hand, their new ad proclaiming “Vegans have a bigger sexual appetite. Do it like they do. Go vegan.” is actually really sex-positive, which we also feel is important. What to do?!

Rupert Murdoch FoxTel's Sex with Pig Billboard Ad is 'Art' - IBTimes.co.uk | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

A giant billboard advert showing a man having sex with a pig has sparked uproar after appearing in a busy neighbourhood in Australia.

Pedestrians in a Sydney neighbourhood were shocked to see the image, next to a slogan which read WTF! Watch the Forbidden.

The shock advert was placed by Australian TV firm FoxTel on top of a building in the red light district of Kings Cross, clearly visible across the inner-city neighbourhood. The board was trimmed with garish pink to make it stand out even more.

In contrast, in its past hilarious effort for Kraft's Athenos lineup, a Greek grandmother reprimands young people for showing off their sexuality.

Sex sells, and  not just to adults.

Victoria's  Secret has gotten attention recently for its increased marketing for  teenagers, a younger clientele than the bare-it-all models the line is typically  associated with. But the lingerie brand isn't the only one that has stepped up its risqueé advertising aimed at teens and tweens. And it's for a  good reason.

What is Gender, Anyway? » Sex Sells | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

SEX. That’s what I see. What do you see? Here’s a sexy person, who appears to be female, wearing tight-fitting, low-rise jeans and almost nothing for a shirt. The ad is directed toward females who will supposedly want to buy the jeans so they can be just as sexy as the female in the ad. Males who happen to chance a look at the ad will most likely double-take as their walking by or skimming through a magazine. That makes this ad most efficient for the company, right? It gets the job done by attracting a wide variety of viewers, therefore hopefully broadening their consumer range. What’s wrong with that, might you ask? It is a commercial… and you’re right. It is, so I guess it does its job.

Editorial: The media's unconscionable portrayal of sex as a transaction - Highlander Newspaper

Editorial: The media's unconscionable portrayal of sex as a transaction - Highlander Newspaper | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

These commercials are only a cursory glance at the deluge of advertisements that all spout the same message throughout February: Valentine’s Day is nothing more than an exchange of goods. The man gives the woman one thing, be it flowers, teddy bears or jewelry. In exchange, it is expected that she give him another—sex.

Paula Maria Tinoco Trindade's insight:

"This media portrayal of sex as a good that can be bartered is destructive to the values Valentine’s Day supposedly stands for: recognizing and rejoicing in love for one another. Sex becomes nothing else but a transaction in this view, with the guy expecting his woman to have sex and the girl acquiescing to the man’s request because it is expected of her."

Do it for Denmark: Competition calls for Danes to have more sex to 'tackle declining birth rates'

Do it for Denmark: Competition calls for Danes to have more sex to 'tackle declining birth rates' | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

Travel agency offers three years' free baby supplies for couples who can prove they conceived on holiday

A travel company is calling for Danes to have sex - and lots of it - in a tongue-in-cheek competition aimed at tackling the country's low birth rate.

The bold Do it for Denmark advert, from Spies Rejser travel, promises three years of free baby supplies and a child-friendly holiday for the lucky couple who can prove they conceived their child while on one of their holidays.

The travel company claims it is tackling the country's declining birth rate by asking Danes to 'do it for Denmark' and reproduce.

A report published in February 2013 described the birth rate among Danish women as "dangerously low". It found more than one in five couples were childless, despite the majority of couples reporting wanting between two and three children, according to the Copenhagen Post.

Many couples are waiting longer to have children and there are fewer women of child-bearing age, the report states, leading to concerns that there will not be enough people to support an ageing population.

Spies' promotion highlights statistics (which are impossible to verify) that ten per cent of all Danes are conceived on holiday – and 46 per cent have more sex while away.

Alcohol as a Tool in the Dating Game » Sociological Images | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

I’ve never been able to find a picture of it, but when I was in graduate school (not so long ago) and living in Madison, Wisconsin, there was an ad for Bacardi on the side of a city bus that said: “Bacardi, the Ultimate Wingman.”  A wingman is a friend who helps you get laid, so the not-so-subtle message of the ad was: “get’er drunk and she’ll do ya!”

Here are two ads that have, essentially, the same message (the first was given to me by my student, Bo; the second was found here).

This one could be interpreted as, “Drink Heineken so you won’t be nervous,” or, “Drink Heineken so you’ll get what you want without any trouble.”

There is no doubt that sex in advertising catches your attention. The headline of this post probably caught your attention just because it had the word “sex” in it. But now, advertising streams are so saturated with sex-bent ads, that the sex-based campaigns really have to standout with creativity and connection to sell.

Sexist Ads Support Hyper-Masculinity; Harmful Sexual Aggression In Men - Medical Daily

Sexist Ads Support Hyper-Masculinity; Harmful Sexual Aggression In Men - Medical Daily | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

Men who exhibit violent sexual aggression could be doing so as a result of  sexist advertising. Researchers have uncovered evidence that  suggests major publications generate biased adverts that perpetuate harmful  macho stereotypes.  

"The widespread depiction of hyper-masculinity in men's advertising may be  detrimental to both men and society at large," said lead researcher Megan Vokey.

The study, conducted at the University of Manitoba, examined 527 advertisements  from eight male-driven magazines including Playboy, Maxim,  Fortune, Golf Digest, Field and Stream, Game  Informer, Esquire, and Wired. Advertisements were marked  for the perceived "hyper-masculine" message they were sending to men.

Are Bloggers Afraid To Talk About Sex? | BlogHer | Sex Marketing | Scoop.it

I'm a sex writer.  Well, I'm more than simply a sex writer, but I'm very open about the fact that I  write about sex-related topics in my blog and in other media. I have no problem with being known as a "Sex Writer" mainly because I feel that women have the right to speak openly about sex from a sex-positive point of view, rather than a shaming one. I encourage women to speak freely about their sexuality, sexual identity, and yes, sexual behavior. I recognize, however, that doing so publicly can be rather daunting.

Looking for the easiest way to attract customers to products? Just add a little sex appeal. The purpose of advertisements is to prove that the products are of use in one way or another. Sex is one of the strongest physiological appeals. Sexual desires are even prominent in animals, with the common dream of finding the perfect mate.
