Eating sushi off a women’s naked body — sound appetizing to you?
Well, a A Vancouver catering company is offering just that but it may not be for much longer. Controversy has sparked among feminists who call this type of dining disgusting and degrading. However, one of the models for “Naked Sushii” is defending the service and her job, describing it as an empowering and a beautiful form of art.
“We’re not hijacked into doing this,” Vancouver model Jessica Perry stated. “Personally, I find it something quite beautiful.”
The Toronto-based catering company, Naked Sushi, which offers Nyotaimori— the Japanese practice of serving sushi on a female’s naked body— has not yet hosted an event in Vancouver, but women’s rights activists have already targeted them, asking health officials to shut down the business.
Would you say that this is sexist? Is this using a naked woman as a ‘prop’? Or is it a unique way to experience sushi?
