Restaurant Fined over plans to serve food on half-naked women.
The restaurant management told China’s official Xinhua news agency they simply wanted to introduce a special Japanese food culture to Chinese people
The practise of eating sushi off naked or nearly-naked women has long been popular with a certain clientele in Japan. But the authorities in China said the restaurant’s actions violated women’s rights, as well as laws on advertising and food sanitation.
The BBC adds the local perspective to the story:
Some “were indignant, claiming it is humiliating to women,” the official China Daily newspaper reported at the time.
“But others were curious and tempted to have a try,” it added.
Talk about serendipity, creative bloggers at StlBloggers.com recently wrote a round-robin fic that mentioned both sushi and a naked woman.
I wonder if a sushi restaurant in St. Louis would be willing to give this a try? (Or maybe someone could open up a sushi restaurant ‘across the river’) Any entrepreneurs out there?
“It takes a lot of concentration and muscle control”
And back in 1960 a picture of this delicacy appeared on the cover of Vogue.
