There Was Sex In The USSR: Soviet Car Advertising From The Past

An advertisement for the Soviet GAZ-24 ‘Volga’. The Volga was the main dream of every man and many women in the Soviet Union.

There were times when the VAZ-2101 ‘Zhiguli’ was advertised as an exclusive car, and even photographed with giraffes while the GAZ ‘Volga’ was the dream of every citizen, and sausage was considered a delicacy.

Russian advertisers of that time were well aware that promotion was a trade engine, and sex helped to sell products.

In the USSR, a car was a luxury, not just a means of transportation. It was received as a gift by the most important people in the country. To buy a ‘Zhiguli’ from an official representative, people waited for five years, and they sold the car later for 2-3 times what they originally paid for the automobile.
