Implications - When it comes to advertising, there's no denying that sex sells. What advertisers need to realize is that the imagery they use to exploit that theory doesn't need to be overly explicit. An example would be the simple utilization of the sensuality that is imparted by the action of a tongue lick. By coyly implying a seductive situation, the sex appeal is reached and a little consumer participation is created, and the images aren't as racy as they would seem.
