Monday, April 19, 2010 sells

I was watching the Country Music Awards last evening while folding laundry and noticed that the age old adage 'sex sells' is still true. The visually 'hotter' performers with abs of steel and good bodies got the full camera pan. The others, especially one blonde vocalist, who isn't a size 2 enjoyed her performance while the camera remained on her pretty face only.
On this day in 1927 Mae West was sentenced to 10 days in jail for obscenity for her play Sex. Sex was a 1926 play, written by, and starring, Mae West. It was very popular for about a year before the New York Police Department raided West and her company, charging them with obscenity, despite the fact that 325,000 people had watched it, including members of the police department and their wives, judges of the criminal courts, and seven members of the district attorney’s staff.
West was sentenced to 10 days in jail, getting out two days early for good behavior. The resulting publicity increased her national renown.
Business is good and I hope that everyone out there can report same. My suggestion is, if you want a raise or need to increase sales, forget the typical corporate work garb and sex it up.Men: tight fitting slacks and shirts that show biceps. Women: show that cleavage and please try to wear skirts that barely reach the knee.
I am off to get 4'x 8'plywood and studs to construct tables for a prom with a Jamaican theme. Now, where did I put that G-string? "Sex on the Beach Toile Sex Fabric" shown today.
