Society and Sexuality

I am doing my final paper over designer Tom Ford, along with the fashion industry as a whole objectifying woman and creating explicit sexual images. My main question is why is everything so sexual? Why is it true that sex sells? It all comes down to the fact that we are sexual beings.
Throughout history we see art, writings, sculptures and pictures of very sexual images by famous artist in history. Yes we are mammals and reproduce just like any other being, however we have a big difference and that is our thought process. Humans fantasist, we imagine things and are drawn to things that entice our senses.
By looking at the fashion world advertising sexual images to sell things does make sense. Seeing such images engages individuals. It grabs our attention and most people like what they see and as a reaction remember, and by the products.
