I receive a lot of spam. Gmail filters it out pretty well, but I have this OCD problem with seeing that I have unread messages, even if they are in the spam folder. I clear out my spam folder almost daily, just to get rid of that annoying nagging feeling.
I've noticed that most spam is geared towards men. Maybe it's just that most spam is geared towards sex and most sex is geared towards men. But anyway, here's a small sampling.
More inches and more force - Your gf is liable to go out of her skull when she sees your new huge wand!

Anxiety, depression and low self-esteem have no chance against a big penis and rockhard erections that last much longer than before.

Then there are the ambiguous, gender-neutral messages, although they still seem somewhat masculine (career and status), but could really be aimed at both men and women.

Swiss Branded Watches from $206, save you $5000-15000+ for any brands, No.1 Swiss QualityRep1ica
And finally, here's the one type of spam that I get that I think it probably aimed at women.
Lose weight with this miracle supplement
Isn't it funny how the internet defines men by their sexual prowess and women by their body type? I guess it's a good thing that spam focuses on stereotypes. It's easier to ignore that way.
And now I'm going to go dump my spam folder.
