Imagine 2019: What does sex sell?


We are delighted to welcome back to The Crescent the Imagine as they bring to the stage another incredible festival.

Imagine is a unique festival designed to excite people’s minds and passions in an inspiring annual programme of performance, discussion and debate. It is a high quality showcase for new ideas on politics, culture and activism in Northern Ireland.

About What does sex sell?

Men are sexual predators and women are sex objects – or so advertisers like to tell us.

‘Sexy’ themes have been used in advertising for decades, based on the notion that ‘sex sells’. From yoghurt ads to shampoo, from perfume to fast food – these ads are ubiquitous and pasted in mainstream media.

Researcher Kat Rezai (Edinburgh Napier University) broadens this debate to ask: what do ‘sexy’ ads really sell? Does it sell that ‘sexy’ product, or does it sell specific behaviours? Join Kat in this engaging and challenging discussion. Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison.

In association with the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas.
