Alcohol maker says every drop is poured over naked models' breasts before bottling

[quote]

German firm behind the G-Spirits sports racy marketing to promote the fact it says every drop is poured over naked women before bottling

I wasn't even going to post this in the feminism forum because the anti-feminist part of it is so obvious that it goes without saying.  It's so stupid that I think I'm more struck by the stupidity than the misogyny...

Do they sterilize the naked models first?

(I mean, on the outside, of course...)

No, but I think the alcohol will sterilise the drink. However, if you had to do that all day, just think how dry your skin would get! Aieeeee!!!!

I saw that too, and was grossed out on many levels. I believe we can post examples of misogyny here - don't think there is a separate forum for that.

The distiller is not the only capitalist involved in gross misogyny. The Globe is giving them free publicity with this sensationalist story that is nothing but a marketing ploy.

Actually, I'm very surprised if such a practice is actually allowed in Germany - not because it demeans women, but because that country has long prided itself on its strict food and beverage salubrity laws. A Bavarian law against any adulterants in beer was the first such law of its kind.

I thought the Church was the first to ban adulterants.

All the churches, actually.

Yes, of course I knew that was a possible "double entendre". I managed to avoid "titillating", substituting "sensationalist", but decided to leave that one in.

in a religious context the word "adulterant" sounds like someone who leads a ritual,,,ir an official ecclesiastical title:

"Cathedral of St. Polygamous...Msr. Sean O'Reilly, Adulterant".
