Influence: Does Sex Really Sell?

by Kevin Hogan

Does Sex Really Sell?

The question is...really odd to me.

My mind says, "Geez watching two people having sex next to the copier could be interesting, but more likely, it will be an ugly sight. Think of the people in your office. All of them. How many do you want to see having sex? Exactly....not many."

BUT, on the other hand...

Influence: Does Sex Sell? by Kevin Hogan. Photo used by License: BizDiscThe question really is a representation of what the American Culture defines as "s^x"..., which is, indeed, an attractive female.

American Definition of Sex Formula:
Sex = Attractive Female

Does "Sex" Make a Man Reach for His Wallet?

Can the irrelevant image of an alluring female posing by the merchandise actually encourage a heterosexual man to purchase it?

KEYPOINT: The study showed that when heterosexual men are exposed to positive emotional stimuli in this case, erotic photos of a man and woman an area of the brain associated with anticipation of reward is stimulated.

In the immediate aftermath of that stimulation, men are consistently more likely to take bigger financial risks than they otherwise would, said Brian Knutson, assistant professor of psychology.

"This is the first study to demonstrate that emotional stimuli can influence financial risk-taking," said Knutson, lead author of a paper describing the research in the current issue of NeuroReport.

The hard evidence was gathered by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of participants' brains as they viewed photographs of positive, negative or neutral subjects and then had to quickly make a decision to choose one of two levels of financial risk in a required gamble.
