Most of the ad makers believe that advertisements is not about reality but about imagination and therefore they prefer to go for female actors rather than male actors because most of the men psychologically would love to talk to a woman rather than a male and when they make an ad with a female actor it subconsciously works in the right way. As per the research done on male psychology more than 55 percent of males would prefer to talk to a woman or would prefer to make a relationship with woman rather than males and this is why ad makers prefer to take female actors as that would convey the message across a large male audience easily.


Most of the ads for items like male perfumes, deos, shaving gel, after shaves, bikes and innerwear have female actors in it even though the items are pretty much male oriented. It portrays female actors as an object of temptation but most of the ad makers completely deny the fact that there is any sexploitation of females in the advertisement industry. Advertisements for many famous brands like Axe always have female actors in it which are seen enticing the male actors indicating the male audience that the deo is powerful enough to attract any women that they are after. Many other perfume advertisements like Boss Hugo and Wild Stone also portray female actors as housewives and neighbors who are intoxicated by the powerful aroma of the product and that is more than enough to create demand for such products in the market.


Another reason why female actors are the most common gender in advertisements is because as per the research done by the supermarkets and malls it has been proved that females shop more than males and therefore it becomes very easy for the ad makers to pass on their message to the female audience. Most of the ads that are related to health and fitness have women exercising and making notes of the health concerns faced by the entire family. Female audiences find these ads very attractive because they feel that it is their duty to take care of their family needs. Ad makers comment that before they go ahead and make any advertisements for television or for banners they have to understand the target audience and how the ad will psychologically have its impact on the minds of the consumers. Since females do a lot of shopping ad makers have to introduce female actors so that the female audience can relate themselves with the lead female actor and go ahead and purchase the product. Many such advertisements are really becoming popular among female audience which are related to women health, women fitness, cooking oil, family care and cosmetics.
