Sex Sells?


I work in the music department of a large bookstore and today was the release of Adam Lambert's cd along with that of Susan Boyle. Lambert was on the American Music Awards and from all the reports his performance was overly sexual.

Well I didn't ring up one Lambert cd today. I rang up about a half dozen Susan Boyle cds as well as called another dozen special orders. People commented on Adams cd cover, usually not very kindly.

My conclusion, sex doesn't always sell.
