When Did Ads Become Sexy?
Jun 5, Battered Women's Support Services. Nude or Naked Advertisements. Women in the capitalist society lose their sense of being a human being and they become possessions when they are used in advertisements. Capitalism is the economic system in which natural resources and the means of production of goods and services are privately owned. The means of production are more efficient tools that replace human labour that gives the private owners more of a capitalist control. This control gives the private owners a sense of authority, which is power that is legitimated or institutionalized. A way the private owners maintain their authority is through the consumption of products and advertisements that include beautiful women.
The black and white image, seemingly of a woman wearing o nly a pair of strappy heels, pictured her reclining in a chair with one leg placed on top of a table and the other on the ground. A cluster of onions were placed on the table beside the model, whose buttocks and groin area were obscured by the arm of the chair. Two people complained to watchdogs about the advert, which featured in the Raconteur supplement included in The Times newspaper. However, we considered that the way in which the model was depicted gave the impression that the model was fully nude. The advertising watchdog said it considered that the pose of the model, particularly given that she was shown as reclining with her parted legs facing an open window, was "sexually provocative", giving the ad a "voyeuristic feel". Because the ad placed visual emphasis on the model's body in a sexualised manner and such nudity was unrelated to the product, we considered that the ad objectified the model depicted and invited readers to view her body as a sexual object.
