The World’s Sexiest Mainstream Video Ads: A Symbiosis between Visual and Aural

Advertising creative directors are a bit like chefs in that they combine ingredients to produce something highly consumable. Take a really hot looking lady, or even better a succession of them, make sure that they are scantily dressed, include a really hot music track, and then finish your dish with a hot sports car for the chicks in knickers to loll about on its bonnet. He presto, you have a killer ad to put up on the big screen, post online and fill in the breaks on a top rating TV series.

The world’s sexiest mainstream video ads: a symbiosis between visual and aural can make a big impact on the psychology of the unwary. A successful ad of this kind can make you want to buy a car, have cosmetic surgery, change your brand of underwear, masturbate, and/or feel like you are really missing out on something. The charge from these vibrating blasts of sound bytes and pixels can ramp up the libido of the young and crush the spirit of the weary. The visuals strut and the music howls; it is like a wolf on heat for sex and blood. Commercials for cars most commonly utilise these beasts of sound and fury. The ads transform a prosaic experience of driving a vehicle from point A to point B into an imaginary orgy of thrills and seminal spills. They present the inescapable conclusion that if you buy this car all these hot women and their pouting beauty in underwear will be yours. The loud music fills your ears and your eyes feast on what you would like to fuck. Advertisers are not allowed to associate images of a sexual nature in ads promoting alcohol, but if it is a car ad they can stick it in as far as it will go.

Sexual video imagery graces our Internet and TV screens with all the aplomb of a nuclear bomb; exploding in the face of teenagers and the young at heart. The content suggests that life is a race and you better speed your way into first place. Hot near naked chicks entice stiff dicks to rev their engines and roar down your street. Life is a movie in the minds of these highly motivated juveniles and they are liable to lose control of the vehicle. Consumer porn flashes in your face every ninety seconds selling you the American dream. Do you ever ask yourself what is the meaning of life?

Images Of Wealth and Desire: Have We Gone Too Far?

There are so many decadent images of fast luxury cars and ridiculously unattainable real estate properties, on our media screens, that it’s no wonder depression is on the increase. Capitalism is so aspirational that the carrots being dangled in front of our faces are bigger and sleeker than ever before. Photoshopped this and that makes everything more amazing, and let’s face it, intrinsically unreal. Beautiful women with perfect bodies adorned with designer jewellery and clothing grace our TV and computer screens. Even, the actors and models in bank ads paint this imaginary world, where home ownership is actually possible.

The economics of capitalism means that it is all about selling more and more stuff to keep the wheels of prosperity turning. In the wealthy decadent west we aspire to designer European cars, McMansions in the suburbs, gourmet kitchens, and bathrooms out of some five star hotel suite. Little boys and girls now grow up wanting these things; and they judge all those who do not possess them as societal failures. Materialism has run rampant looking for its soul; it is hoping to find it in ever more luxurious manifestations, but is ultimately doomed never to succeed.

If any of us, actually, reached the top of the mountain and that plateau where we felt we had enough, capitalism would creak to a noisy halt. Images of wealth and desire: have we gone too far? No, the whole process depends on never reaching nirvana, no matter how many pairs of designer shoes you own. Consumer porn tantalises you with images of beautiful people sitting on beautiful couches and chairs. These same elegant folks are living in wondrous houses and apartments. They are driving the latest model European car.

Have you noticed that there are fewer images on TV of African children with distended stomachs, caused by starvation? There are decidedly fewer images of ugly people on our media screens. I do not know if this is a result of the wonders of dentistry and teeth whitening procedures or, merely, an executive decision. Can you find meaning in beauty? In possessing beautiful things? If we surround ourselves with luxuriously gorgeous stuff, and ban all images of less fortunate folk from our viewing screens, will we live fulfilling lives?

Defying the Beauty Myth: Adult Performers Allowed Curves

I have always thought and said that the fashion industry is full of faggots and they do not have the best interests of women in their view finders. Applying skeletally thin parameters to the conception of female beauty is all about turning girls into boys. The Spartan idea of a good woman was one who looked and felt like a man; especially under the covers in the dark. Flat chests and jutting cheekbones may do it for Christian, Karl and Calvin (what is it with all these ckkkccc names?), but real men want something they can hold onto.

The fact that women have gone along with the fashion industry’s narrow conception of female beauty says something about how they feel about their own bodies. It has to be seen as a rejection of a woman’s procreative role as mother and nurturer. Skinny mums are not ideal mums, babies and toddlers prefer fat to bones; what child wants to be embraced by a body with jutting pelvic bones? Who wants to bury their face in a bunch of protruding ribs? Kids like rotund, round, warm shapes.

The fashion industry continues to Photoshop women’s bodies to anorexic proportions, and yet the field of escorts and adult entertainers shows that when it comes to men, men prefer more of their women to love. Defying the beauty myth: adult performers allowed curves. The sex industry defines women by their sexy bits and curves are a big part of that definition. A glance at the shapes of a number of Sydney escorts shows that sensual curves are highly desirable. The sexy part of women has now been become a commodity to be bought and sold because it is increasingly unavailable anywhere else.

Women have been competing with men for so long that they have lost sight of the essential differences between the genders. Twenty first century people, generally, live inside their heads rather than the rest of their bodies. Political correctness has removed sexuality from the main game and given it only a thin strip of space to play in. It is inappropriate during working hours or learning hours, so that cuts out at least ten hours a day including travelling time. We sleep for around eight or ten hours a day and we eat for another hour or so a day. That leaves a couple of hours, at most, to find somewhere and someone to express yourself sexually with. Sex is controlled and that is one of the reasons it finds itself so established in the commercial world. Sex is now, more than ever, a business.
