SEX WATCH: Sexy Sports Reporter Slideshows Are Never in Poor Taste

We here at Mediaite understand one universal truth about all media strategies — sex sells. Every so often (read: every day) we notice how some of our friends across the Internet use sexy headlines and photos to drive traffic. And what better way to celebrate these recession-busting decisions than in a regular feature? Welcome to SEX WATCH!

Picture 8•Bleacher Report: “15 Sexiest Sports Reporters of All Time” — A feature on the hottest sports figures is a normally considered pretty crass and a marginally contemptible feature. But on the heels of the pervert stalking peephole video of ESPN’s Erin Andrews, the timing couldn’t be worse. 

FoxNews.com:Faces and Features — This below-the-fold the human interest section on the Fox homepage gives us just another reason to stick around the site after we’ve scrolled past all the fair and balanced news at the top. Featuring: “Is the vice president’s assertion that Ukrainian women are the most beautiful in the world an accurate one?” A slideshow of “Joe Biden’s Ukranian Beauties.” Plus: Twins! and Celebs in their skivvies!

MTV UK: “Best Boobs in Hollywood 2009” — Poor Jessica Simpson fell nine spots from #1 this year. That’s ok, Jessica, Christina Aguilera (#5) soooo cheated.

Times UK:Silvio Berlusconi ‘Sex Tapes’ Released” — File this under ‘anti-sex watch’.
