DescriptionIn this paper, an examination of the correlation between the use of sexual images in advertising and feelings of discontent with body image in adolescent girls will take place. It is this author’s opinion that the over-use of sexual images in advertising negatively effects how young girls perceive their bodies. This author’s research question examined whether the increased use of sex as an advertising tool is associated with the way that an adolescent girl perceives her own body. A literature search was also completed in which it was found that there is significant evidence to support this author’s claim. A broad internet search was done to obtain the most common keywords, and then a more in-depth search was done to find appropriate articles.
