Looking at the picture, note the position of the woman as opposed to the man. The woman is in a suppine position, and sexually inviting, and a position of submission as much as erotic. The man is sitting upright in a more dominant pose. She is looking at him and is clearly protrayed as a sex object, he is looking out into the world but in a position to take up the woman's invitation should he choose,he has the commanding position. Now think about how that fits in with gender roles in modern Australia, who is this ad geared at in terms of Demographics of age and gender. Hope this gets you started.
