I find it very disturbing and sexist that more and more, women are becomming a new way to advertise things online.
Here's how I was welcomed at Shoemoney.com (see both first posts).
Not that I don't like women (:P), but for me, ads sites and women in light clothes aren't meant to go together.
Not what I would call a very ethic manner to promote things.
Yes I know, but some time ago, online marketing was still clean from such methods.
I recently found an interesting post on sex in ads.
Well, to me, those ads are really gross and if they remove the women in it and get creative, they might end up having better results.
And by the way, back in February, Copyblogger published a post, "When Sex Refuses to Sell"
What about the dude in the background. I find that very offensive :P

Sex sells, it's as simple as that. You have to remember, Prostitution is described as the World's oldest profession.
When there's a way to make money through 'exploiting' Women, everyone will do it. Online or offline.
