The passive and submissive poses suggest that women are for male sexual desire and satisfy male gaze.Nowadays, printed slimming advertisements in magazines and on the billboards often suggest that one particular female image which conveys that an ideal body simply equals slim and not too small-breasted and taut, is socially valued.According to Berger (2008), men are always spectators and women are always seen.Those advertisements do not only tend to praise women with a slim body as fashionable and attractive, but also suggest that a thin body shows positive connotations of women.It has been shown that public perception of women is affected by printed slimming advertisements negatively in Hong Kong.
