Essay 3
It’s king of a cliché, but they say that “sex sells.” In the United States, we are bombarded with sexual imagery.
Pick something—an ad, an image, a celebrity, a type of person—that people find sexually attractive, and then write an
essay in which you explain the origin of this desire, the way that people who desire it express that desire, and what that
tells us about them or the world at large.
