I'm sure that we can all agree that when it comes to advertising, sex sells. Should that concept of sex selling apply to food? I'm not sure it should, but let's take a look at what they think in Copenhagen, Denmark. Apparently, a burger joint in the lovely European city is now selling sex toys with its hamburgers. Yes, I said sex toys. It wasn't bad enough that Burger King Japan was making black cheeseburgers. Now, you buy a burger and get a dildo. What is this world coming to?
Starting today, the burger joint, Hot Buns is adding dildos, vibrators, whips, and other sex-oriented products to the menu. First of all, Hot Buns? According to its proprietor, it's a natural fit, considering the restaurant puts as much emphasis on the tank top and hot pants worn by its all-female staff as it does on the burgers. The restaurant's Instagram page even posts cleavage shots of employees and invites followers to guess which waitress it is. I'm starting to feel like this is my type of place.
Hot Buns owner, Mathias Kaer says the sex toys will only be available in evening hours. This nutcase actually believes he might be onto something. He said, "On Friday and Saturday nights there are only two things most people want: sex and food. We're combining them both." I must be getting old because the only thing I want on Friday and Saturday nights these days is food and sleep.
Kaer might see an opportunity to make money, but he's also trying to win over those who believe his business model is a tad bit sexist. When Hot Buns opened back in March, Danish politician Camilla Schwalbe admitted to having a "beef" with the restaurant's use of sex to sell burgers. Then again, of course, she had a "beef" with it. She's a woman! Find me a male politician with a problem with Hot Buns. Schwalbe said, "Fast food normally makes you feel guilty, but this burger should make people feel extra guilty and leave a bad taste in the mouth." Anyway...
In order to get the sex toy giveaway off to a banging start, Hot Buns plans to hand out free cock rings to the first ten male customers while the first ten women will each get vibrators. I have to admit; they really know how to party out in Europe. This will never fly in the U.S. Then again, I'm not sure that it should. Sex toys and burgers just don't go together. Maybe hot pants and burgers do, but a dildo served with my burger? No so much!
