Question by PIX-ED: Do women prefer to buy Women’s Magazines with hot babes on the cover?
I was at the check-out stand today and noticed a Women’s Health magazine. The cover featured a smiling, sexy, bikini-clad hotty instead of a normal person. Is all the talk by women complaining about women being portrayed as sex objects just that-talk?
Do sexy women on covers sell more magazines to women than realistic-looking women?
Why not refuse to buy these mags and write complaints to the publisher? They’re putting them out to make a profit – no sales and they’re out of business.

Actually, I think women prefer the magazines that show “real” women. There are just so few of those that this is what we end up with.
