Sex Sells: The Power & Influence of Sexual Imagery at Jackson Junge Gallery, 1389 N Milwaukee, ends tomorrow

Sex piques your interest and draws you in, so for the briefest of moments you are open to whatever other material is presented. Just the word ‘sex’ creates curiosity and excitement. Since as early as the 19th century, sexual imagery has been used as a marketing tool, and its prominence in today’s advertisements has risen to an unforeseen degree.
