Suggestive Advocacy

Elements of sensuality are introduced into cause campaigning

Implications - When it comes to pushing important issues, the guilt angle can seem preachy, while an informative approach can be boring.

This new form of shockvertising appeals to consumers' carnality and thus, is well-received.
