That model probably contributed about a thousandth of a cent to the price of the product you're buying. And the cost would be more than offset by economies of scale possible to the manufacturer because of the increased sales she was responsible for.

So it's very possible the model is actually saving you money...in addition to being eye candy for those of us who actually aren't prudes.

The only things Byron sucks hang small, limp and useless from the crotches of rich old men with too much money, too much power and too much regret that they never came out of the closet when they were still spry enough to chase down a congressional page.
