The same goes for sideboob, underboob and all manner of chiselled butts. No matter where I look — from billboards to the targeted ads on Facebook — it seems like an oiled-up demigod is trying to entice me to buy thongs or probiotic yogurt. But while sex was once an advertising goldmine remember Brooke Shields and her Calvins or Paris Hilton fellating a cheeseburger in a fast-food ad?
