7 Lies Our Culture Tells (It’s Just Sex)

One last lie to close out this series… (after a couple months of not finishing the originally intended 7) In western culture today, sex is used to sell everything from domain names to beer to cars to fat, greasy cheeseburgers that are anything but sexy. Advertisers have connected sex with just about every product line …

7 Lies Our Culture Tells (You’ve Messed Up Too Bad)
