** During the [[FinnsWithFearsomeForests Winter War]] Finnish propaganda leaflets promising large sums of money to defectors had come with pictures of models. One historian invokes that jokes by claiming that the few Russians to accept were rather disappointed.

* In the episode "Rixty Minutes" of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', the titular characters view a commercial for "Turbulent Juice" Which features buff, attractive men wearing tight clothing suggestively spraying a substance all over themselves and various locations in a house. But it's so obsessed with showing off sex that it never actually got around to saying what the commercial was selling.
--> Morty: What in the hell?!
--> Rick: Sex sells, Morty.
--> Morty: Sex sells ''what''? Is it a movie, or does it clean stuff?

* There's actually a debate going on as to whether or not sex does sell as much as it used to. The reasoning is that porn is easily viewable to anyone who has internet and since most people who have the money to try random products they see with a pretty lady on it have internet there may only be a quarter of the money there used to be in it anymore. As to whether or not this is correct is up to you.
