The oldest profession is not sex. It’s selling sex by taking advantage of the lizard brain(hence the serpent analogy). Marketers should be in the same class as people who have sex with underaged or mentally challenged people: sure, the victims SEEM willing, but informed consent rests on comprehension of information and intentionality of action. The entire marketing industry is built on the opposite of comprehension-based decisions. Re: “Coercion” by Douglas Rushkoff, or pretty much all of the books promoting consumerism in the 50s.
