Hi shoaib-ga!

Thanks for your question. These actresses and models submit their
photos to so they will get publicity and help
let others know they're out there. One of the most important elements
of being any kind of artist is self-promotion. If no one knows who you
are, they aren't likely to hire you for a job. So these actresses and
models are showing who they are to try and gain interest from those
who have hiring power.

As Stephen Coles says, "In order to have a successful acting career,
you must be prepared. No matter how much talent you have, no matter
how good you look, if you can't market yourself you will be missing
out on the vast majority of job opportunities."

Actors Northwest Self Promotion Tools

It's vital for models and actors to been seen as much and often as
possible, and these Pakistani actresses are taking advantage of an
opportunity that could bring them jobs.

I hope this was what you were looking for!

Hello  filian-ga and please note that I am satisfied with your answer
but please provide a little more clarification of your answer. I want
to mention that I those Pakistani actresses and models have also shown
 their photos in the 'semi-nude' condition in that website, so
therefore I want to know that what is the meaning for those semi-nude 
photos  because if they are only showing their photos for publicity
then it is  not be necessary to show their photos in the semi-nude
condition also?  Please provide 'clarification' of that statement.
Thanks for your help.

When a person appears in a semi-nude manner it means that they are
showing off their physical attributes in order to make themselves more
attractive to others, and thus bring about an opportunity for
employment. Actors and models are not only hired and paid for innate
or learned talent but also because they look "good" or fit. A model or
actress posing semi nude is done for the purpose of making a person
believe they are "sexy" or "sensual" or showing that they are
attractive and eye catching, which will in turn sell a product.
Exploiting one's sexuality sells products, so these women use their
bodies to sell "themselves" in a way so they will be considered the
right person for a job. For a model, posing semi-nude can show more
bone structure, define the lines and curves of their bodies and show a
designer how clothing might hang on them. We can see if they are in
proportion, and also women pose semi-nude in some cases to "fool"
people into thinking they are more attractive than they really are.
Some very ordinary looking women can win jobs simply by putting on
makeup and posting seductively, thus making another person more
receptive to considering them for a job. They are using their
sexuality as leverage in the job market.

I hope this answered your question.

Shoaib-ga, I do not mean to be unkind, but by some of the questions
you have asked, you seem to be a bit obsessed about the matter of
young ladies posing on the Internet. Perhaps you need to get out more.
Once you have encountered a few actual, real life young ladies, your
distress over digital images is likely to abate.

By "exposure" it means that in advertising, the more you are "seen"
(as in exposed to possible buyers) ...the better the chances you will
make sales.

Magnesium-ga  please note that I  had previously  asked  questions
about Pakistani actreesses and  models because  I am also  the 
citizen  of Pakistan  country  and therefore  I am  interested  to 
seek  information  about  the various  aspects  of  Pakistani 
actresses  and  models.  I  hope this  would  solve  your  comment.
