I like them! As long as my gut reaction isn't that the woman is being objectified, but rather, "hot!" I like sex!! What is the problem with sex selling? It's not like they're selling kids' books!

I'm not a fan. The focus should be on the clothes but instead they're on boobs, butts, and crotch shots. These aren't serving their purpose.

See I love it! We are to effing worried about the wrong kind of censorship in America. It's "oh, hid the kids and mine own eyes from the sexually explicit, beautiful images of nudity and expression, and hand them a semi-automatic toy gun or video games where they can rip each others organs out..." And we wonder why there's so much violence...Duh!

SEX SELLS. EVEN IF IT IS TASTELESS. i.e. tom ford's advertising...

Ew. It doesn't sell for me... It kinda grosses me out and makes me not want to buy/wear those clothes. (Like I could afford them anyway!) I'm definitely not a prude, but I am kind of a germophobe I have to admit. Like - I'm grossed out by the thought of anyone else having sex on my sheets (even if I wash them afterwards). Ew. Oh and the Sisley/winter hat one - could they have found a model with more obvious implants? They look like grapefruit halves!

Yeah, pretty much any Tom Ford ad with a female in it. Also the bulk of D&G ads, but they don't really reach this level (maybe 'cause their models pose kind of like droids/robots?), it's more of an overall thing.I agree with sugajen - "Nothing says classy like masturbation."@ Alexixis - oh, my...

Sex sells? Men are distracted by the sex and don't remember the brand. Women are angry at all the obejctifying of the woman body and men looking at such ads. Imho sex doesn't sell and sex based ads are just plain stupid (as well as not tasteful).

well, isnt fashion innately about sex? we cover up our best assets, but our goal is to show them off so you want to see whats underneath. i think sex and fashion go hand in hand, so i actually like these. and good call on the scarface scene, nicachica! thats TOTALLY what it screams to me! :D
