Sex??? or Female Sex???

There is an episode of Sex and the City titled "The Power of Female Sex". In the episode, Carrie and Samantha go to a restaurant with a hostess and couldn't get a table to save their lives. Then Samantha said, if the hostess was a host not only would we have a table, he would be sending over free drinks. This got me thinking about the infamous phrase "sex sells" but exactly whose sex??? Take the entertainment industry for example. Look at Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross. I am a huge fan of them both. I love their music and the images they both sell. Rick Ross can be shirtless on the cover of Vibe Magazine and the issue would fly off the shelves. Now, if Nicki Minaj was as talented as she is but looked like Rick Ross, no one would even look in her direction. Her tight, revealing outfits definitely contribute to her success, along with all the other highly successful female entertainers we all know and love. Beyonce may be a church girl, but she too has a "sex symbol" image to uphold, baby or no baby. How women look is half of their success levels, whether you are an entertainer or not. Women have used sex to get ahead in life (in a "man's world") since the beginning of time. Yet, funny enough, men don't have to use sex to get ahead in life.

Now don't get me wrong, I love a sexy ripped manly physique just as much as the next girl. But the difference with male sex is that only women would buy into it, as opposed to men AND women buying into female sex. That's like people (male or female) would much rather see two girls kiss than two guys kiss.....I don't know why but it is what it is. So it's not necessarily sex that sells, because men don't have to use their sexual prowess to get what they want out of life, but unfortunately women do. Sex does sell, female sex that is.....food for thought.
