Among the first pull quotes from Comey’s book was one in which Comey states that Trump’s hand size seemed normal to him.
I’m not sure that I’d want to see him topless, but I did see him interviewed on the weekly BBC Newsnight program by Emily Maitlis over the weekend. Comey seems very skilled at diplomatic deflection, to the point that it was difficult to tell whether he really had a point of view on anything. He did defend his position (again) on announcing the re-opening of the investigation into Clinton’s emails just before the election by noting that if he had not done so, then he’d be accused of supporting Clinton. Overall, Comey seemed to have smooth responses that don’t give much away except the theme that he is only trying to do the “right thing.”
You are right about sex selling, although it seems to be more about sex appeal, the appearance of sexiness, than any overt acknowledgement of sex itself. I recall when condoms began to be advertised on TV and the uproar over that; I think there was a ban on when the ads could air–can’t upset the kiddies with thoughts about actual sexual mechanics as opposed to simple sexiness.
Advertising thrives on our insecurities–and what else provokes our insecurities than sex? Unfortunately, American society has an overall attitude toward sex that veers between Puritanism and the junior high school locker room.
