Does sex sell?

The simplest and shortest answer to that question is yes, sex sells. The slightly longer answer is that sex sells some things, some of the time, for some people, to some people, in some situations. Which obviously is not quite as sexy an answer a s a simple yes! But it is more truthful and accurate. Human beings are very sex focused. It is not just me, and it is not just you. Humans crave sex. Of whatever kind and with whomever floats their particular boat. I am not suggesting that people wander around constantly fantasising about what kind of sex we can have next and with whom, or that people are looking for and thinking about all the time. Actually, yes that is exactly what I am suggesting, but it is based on research. And on years working in the sex industry actually selling sex.

Incidentally, selling sex is nothing like as easy as you would think. Everyone has this idea that if you are a sex worker or run a brothel or escort agency such as Elegant Escorts Geneva then all you have to do is just put some adverts out, and you will immediately become a millionaire. And then you just have the problem of managing all your newly earned wealth – and presumably laundering your money and avoiding taxes. Nope, not close. It is nothing like that at all!

I came across some research recently – not literally, because that would be embarassing and messy and indeed expensive because I was reading the research on my laptop! Anyway the research was published in The Journal Of Sex Research – which you would think should be my favourite reading but it is actually norally irritating.

The research reported that the average male thinks about sex around nineteen times a day. I am not sure what the research methodology was, but that sounds like a hell of a lot of under reporting to me – nineteen times a day? I think more like nineteen times an hour! Or maybe they actually meant more than just a random horny thought at a photo or whatever. Perhaps they meant explicitly panning a sexual encounter or fantasising about a specific sexual act with a specific person (or thing!).
