It's almost Christmas time and we're reminiscing on all the ghosts of Christmas days past, filled with laughter, family and delicious food. 

We're also musing about what Santa is going to bring us this year and what topics we really need to avoid talking about at the dinner table...

For days now we've all, hopefully, been getting on top of our shopping and have been surrounded by Christmas music and people trying to sell us the latest and greatest toys for our kids and cousins. 

Christmas cheer and spirit is being used to sell us the idea that this December 25th is going to be the best one yet. 

And we're alright with that. 

But what we aren't so okay with is society trying to get sex to sell this Christmas... 

Aren't we over that already?

This whole 'sex sells' gimick we have been told for years is something we have just about had enough of and as much as we love some of our favourite celebs, we feel a bit les Christmas cheery... 

The Kardashian clan have recently announced a nice line of Kimoji merchanise, underwear/lingerie/the works, and the NSFW promo's they have dropped a) don't leave much to the imagination, and b) are going against people's push to steer clear of 'sex sells'

The images and videos feature what is allegedly Kim Kardashian twerking in nothing but a barely there g-string, and lingerie-clas women bending over one another in provocative poses.

Some even feature a set of breasts amply put on full display, as they bulge over a bra. 

Not exactly what you want your kid, sister or cousin seeing this Christmas... society has enough unrealistic standards as it is. 

You might be one to say, 'this is just how the world is now', but do we really want our kids growing up thinking that sex and sexuality should be used as a tool of power? 

No. 

We're going to go back to scrolling through our Instagram feeds, drooling over the Christmas desserts we long for. 

Because we all know food (and being a decent person) is the true way to someone's heart.
