This study compares the male and female attitudes towards sexual imagery in press advertising and identifies the demographic and psychographic factors influencing their attitudes. Although this topic has received previous attention in literature, genders’ attitudes have not been exclusively compared and particularly not with a view to the factors influencing these attitudes. We employed qualitative methodology to gain a greater understanding of the participants’ views. The findings revealed the significance of gender and age on shaping consumers’ attitude. The contrast between male and female attitudes was undeniable, however overall interviewees implied their growing indifference to the genre.
