This debate has been around for decades and certainly the answer is clear: YES!
Though how much is what I’m trying to figure out, so I’m running my own little experiment here, to see if using sex to promote a website will actually generate popularity on its own, without any other promotion.
Before you read further, I am in no way against using sex to sell. I believe as long as a few conditions are met there should be no issue.
1. The individual should know and understand what they are doing.
2. The individual should know and understand where their material will be viewed.
3. The individual should be made aware that there will more than likely be a LOT of 16 year olds slapping their meat over the material, all around the world.
Obviously these are in addition to the obvious, like their are of legal age and are not being exploited in any way. People who willingly use underage girls in a ‘sexy’ manner for any reason should be harshly dealt with by the laws in their country, so too with anyone found to be exploiting people of legal age.
Anything that does not meet all of these conditions to me should be removed and the persons in-charge of the project punished accordingly.
What we are seeing now, with the ‘age of youtube’ are a lot more so called “amateur” clips being shown around the world, which can be somewhat surprising. My question to them would be, do they fully understand what they are doing, and why? Is it all a bit of fun, will they be okay if their clip is taken the wrong way or if they are portrayed in a negative manner?
Whatever their motivation, be it money, fame or just for shits and giggles, their clips are available around the world and will be viewed praised or criticized for years to come.
