Re: virgin (but not the producer)?
"So we're trying to claim that models don't like it when their attractiveness is used to 'attract' someone to the goods or services that they're advertising?
Can I ask exactly what the purpose of modelling is then?"
Is that even a serious question?
The purpose of modelling is to sell us sh*t. It's not an industry that exists so that pretty girls can feel great about 'using their attractiveness'. That's a very blinkered view.
Do you genuinely believe that low-end £50 a day / per shoot models do it because they get all happy and hot under the collar that sweaty geeks perv at them as they 'use their attractiveness'. At the other end of the scale, supermodels most certainly do not give a flying feck what blokes think, and are just seeing that big dollar sign. And even if you are examining the motives of the pure narcissists, then they are motivated by looking good *to themselves*, not for the sake of others.
Normally it's pretty direct and obvious what modelling is selling us: Fashion, computer games, cars... or just to grab our attention for long enough to give us whatever the message the person hiring the model wants us to hear.
Even if no product is involved and it's a 'Tog's portfolio shot, then the 'Tog is selling themselves by it, and furthering their own careers.
99% of people in the business are being exploited and underpaid, and either don't really enjoy their work, or are fooled by highly manipulative people.
