Is eating off a naked woman as good as it sounds? Our friend at FoodMarathon.com says maybe not.
GUEST COLUMN: Foodmarathon.com, Editor Nacho K.
There’s a fine line between a brilliant idea and a pervy waste of money. Last year a sushi bar opened in Los Angeles where you could eat sushi off of naked women.
For most men, an immediate double sensory shock is administered to the brain; “I love sushi, I love naked women. This is fantastic.” Not more than five seconds later my inner germaphobe clobbered that initial sensation with a large red flag that read “dirty, whore, diarrhea.” That’s as much thought as I put into eating at said sushi bar.
It’s one of the rare times where I thought “they’ve just gone too far.” I don’t mean it in the sense that the women were being degraded (I’m sure they were handsomely compensated and well fed).
I mean, isn’t there a better marketing ploy than turning women into poorly leveled tables? It begs the question, with hot female caddies
and hot card dealers at a casino, why aren’t there hot female sushi chefs? Which leads to the bigger question of why are there aren’t more female sushi chefs in general?
The most common myth is that women’s hands are too warm too handle raw fish. Perhaps they’ll sear the tuna by squeezing too hard? It’s 2008 and although there’s still a lot of stupid people in the world, I’m gonna go with this being an idiotic wive’s tale (especially if you’ve ever heard women complain about constantly being cold). There’s no fair explanation beyond that it’s a man’s world and life’s unfair and blah blah blah.
As a man who loves sushi as much as I love women, I vote for gender equality behind the sushi bar. And I vote for it in the form of Adriana Lima.
