During the artfair Arco, a top model offers sweets with the word ‘prostitution’ printed on the wrapper. There are words that are ‘out of place’ that can be used or not, depending on the system of communication being used. For example, an important Spanish newspaper with advertisements for prostitution, prohibits the publication in this section of an advertisement that uses the word ‘prostitution’ as this is a forbidden word, it can only be expressed by means of an euphemism.
