Sexual Graphics

Beating a path through the sexual-design minefield

Sex sells – be it newspapers and magazines, movies and stage productions, novels and memoirs, art or even music. At the same time, it can be a turn-off for viewers with a conservative outlook on the matter. So when it comes to sex in design, the pros and cons of using it have to be carefully weighed.

And then an even more difficult question has to be posed: is sex being used simply to grab the viewer's attention or does it have an integral part to play in the design concept? Does it enhance the message being conveyed or detract from it?
