RE: Open Discussion on the Allure of Vaping
I think it's deeper than just "sex sells" in some cases. Like Umi said, for some people it's become a fetish, that a hot girl smoking a cigarette is even hotter for some reason. I think it's probably at least in part due to the "rebel girl" ideal. And it works both ways, where a lot of girls like "bad boys" who smoke and wear a leather jacket like James Dean. I think the same could be said of vaping, where if a hot girl vapes then it makes her that much hotter to some people. I recall in our "Redheads Will Steal Your Soul" thread I posted a pic or two of girls vaping that looked a lot like sexy pics of girls smoking.

RE: Open Discussion on the Allure of Vaping
Every single vape shop I've been in that has posters or banners of national juice lines has a hottie advertising it. Literally without exception. Cuttwood, Suicide Bunny, etc. So there's clearly an effort to market to young males. Partially, this probably stems from vaping's original 'outsider hip and underground' roots. There weren't a lot of 40-somethings and soccer moms out there vaping away early on.

And definitely, as mentioned, sex sells. I would buy one brand of manure over another if one had a naked chick on it. (Not actually producing the manure, though. I mean, gently may like Tub Girl brand manure, but I'd pass).

Exactly. This is kind of the point I was mainly trying to get at. Thank you Michael.

RE: Open Discussion on the Allure of Vaping
huh , never realy stopped tho think about it . what realy got me on the vapor was cloud comps . just seeing those phat azz clouds and thinking to my self "self thats feakin awesome "
true enough the ladies comps are a bit askew , with the body somehow outweighing the cloud the body makes.

Sadly, they miss a big section of the market by advertising with Sex. It's a turn off for me, I'd rather see sexy mods and cool attys.

RE: Open Discussion on the Allure of Vaping
If these ads help people to give up smoking and start vaping, I don't care if I see just a sexy model vaping or a whole porn movie doing that.
Tbh, I am really afraid that with all these regulations being made, they will also ban vaping ads, as they banned tobacco ads.
Ps: I want to see an ad starting with a man on a horse smoking a cigarette, and suddenly a lamborghini stops near him, a man with a sexy girl by his side opens the window, vaping his hella mod, gives an ironic smile to the man on the horse and then drifts awayTease

RE: Open Discussion on the Allure of Vaping
That sounds so epic. I can see it now:

We open on a wide shot of a nondescript desert in New Mexico. A cloud of dust billows in the distance. We see a close up of a cowboy, presumably on his way to some far-off town. His hat tips up, and we see his face. He pulls out a cigarette and a matchbox, lights the match on his saddle (they're "strike anywhere" matches) and lights the cigarette, taking a single puff before noticing another cloud of dust coming toward him. He squints to see in the harsh sunlight. We get a brief close-up of a man's hand on a gear shift and hear the whine of a high-performance engine. 
The cowboy's horse whinnies and rears up as the metal beast approaches. The driver turns the wheel sharply and skids on the dust to come to a stop a few feet away from the cowboy. As the driver rolls down the window, the atmosphere changes from "epic spaghetti western" to "Bud Lite Superbowl commercial" as we get a glimpse inside the car of the gorgeous woman sitting next to the driver, laughing at a joke we're not privy to. The cowboy looks confused, but the driver just says "bro, that's nasty. Smoking kills." before taking a long drag on his Slug mod with a brass Goon, and blowing a huge cloud out the window before driving away. The cowboy pulls out his phone and brings up a site with a large headline that reads "E-cigarettes Around 95% Less Harmful Than Tobacco" and simply whispers "damn" as he tosses his cigarette into the desert and rides off. As he rides away, his horse falls out of focus and the camera pans down to the cigarette butt, still smoldering on the ground, and right before the camera fades to black, the cigarette ignites a nearby tumbleweed, which rolls out of frame after catching fire. 

At least, that's how I imagine it.
