What was the cover designer thinking?!

This isn’t a new cover, but it recently popped up in my Goodreads feed again and the horror came back to me.

This is a regular contemporary romance, originally published in 1994 (read: back before sex became the main plot of every second book).

So… WHY? Why market an upbeat, heterosexual contemporary story for women TO women this way? With a close-up of women’s breasts?!
