In what ways do advertisers in magazines use sexual imagery to appeal to youth? One study classified each of 1500 full-page or larger ads as "not sexual" or "sexual," according to the amount and style of the dress of the male or female model in the ad. The ads were also classified according to the age group of the intended readership. Here is a summary of the data.
