Naughty Chair, Mexican Style
Okay, flippant (and in rather poor taste, if I say so myself Undecided ) jokes aside, I give you...

... the penis seat

When a new style of seat suddenly appeared on Mexico City's metro system, it was labelled as inappropriate, uncomfortable, humiliating and embarrassing.

It was supposed to be.

The seat, moulded to include a protruding penis and chest, was designed to highlight sexual harassment experienced by female passengers.
The explanation next to the men-only label read: "It is uncomfortable to sit here, but that is nothing compared to the sexual violence that women suffer on their daily journeys."

The seat is not a permanent fixture, but part of a campaign launched by UN Women and the Mexico City authorities called #NoEsDeHombres, which aimed to highlight sexual harassment on public transport. The campaign has now released a video titled "Experimento Asiento" — “an experiment with a seat” — that has had more than 800,000 views on YouTube since March 20. It shows people reacting with a mixture of discomfort and shock throughout. One man even tried to cover the seat with a coat to sit on it. It didn’t work. He abandoned the seat, as did others who tried to sit in it during the experiment in January.

The campaign is called #NoEsDeHombres (a rough translation would be “this isn’t manly”), and it is aimed at men, both with the video ads and with newly unveiled print ones that show guys giving lascivious looks with slogans like “this is how your mother gets looked at every day.”

These particular ads came about after UN Women and the Mexican government took open submissions for ideas on a campaign to target a male audience. Around 40 agencies submitted pitches and J. Walter Thompson won.

“We need to make clear that this is violent, not flattering, and incentivize men to intervene if they witness it”, said Ana Güemez, director of the Mexican UN Women office, during the presentation of the campaign this Thursday.

According to a national survey done in 2016 by the Mexican Institute of Women, Inmujeres, nine out of 10 women or girls who use public transportation feel unsafe while doing it. A wide-ranging Reuters survey done in 2014 also showed that the Mexico City transport system is the second-most dangerous for women overall out of 15 world capitals. However, Mexico City was squarely in first place for specific questions like “have your been verbally harassed?” or “have you been groped?“

I read about in a free daily, you can pick up for the tube ride today. I wonder who's willing to take a seat.

Apparently some people tried putting their jackets on it but it didn't help...

Sounds kinda gimmicky and is a drop in the water of the machismo that quite a few parts of the world are still drowning in, but who knows... Though I doubt the kind of mind (and by that I mean another anatomical part, really Dodgy ) that gropes women is very likely to change because of something like this, but...

Why does it have to be semi flaccid? It should look like it had some viagra.

This is totally, completely off topic and an entirely different subject and I apologize in advance, but I was reminded of the Automatic Sperm Extractor in China for those men too embarrassed to use their hands. ?

First of all, never apologise for going offtopic (well, not in one of my threads anyway ;-)), that's how conversations work and this is one of my favourite things about this place - you never know where a conversation will lead you Yes

Second of all - oh my freaking god!

Third of all - Automatic Sperm Extractor sounds like it was taken straight out of an especially grim sci-fi/cyberpunk dystopia.

Fourth of all -

Well, it's not all bad. There's a small video screen on the top of the machine to watch videos porn. The upshot is that it's hands free but can robot sex be far behind? Dodgy I think not.
