Lip-Shaped Urinals on Sale on EBay

 

Four urinals that are shaped like a woman's mouth that were being used in public toilets in Vienna (SN reported) went on sale on eBay today after they had been removed for being sexist. They were designed by Rudolf Scheffel.

The urinals feature women's lips painted in orange, blue or pink, a large red tongue and white teeth. They had been featured in their spot for three years before they had to be removed after being used by politicians in September.

According to the eBay auction: "Each urinal will, of course, be meticulously cleaned. The artist himself will sandblast it, brush the mouth's teeth, and give them a new varnish."

The garden is about the only place for these things. Any man that would enjoy making use of one of these, in their original intended location, has something seriously wrong with him.

Urinating into a urinal designed in the shape of a womans mouth - it takes neither rocket science nor advanced psychology to see the direct imlications of degradation in this concept.

If you can urinate into a bowl the shape of a womans mouth, or accept the concept of, without grasping these implications, well ............

  Some people see them  
 
as a comical design. Not everyone here has a urination\domination fetsh Discarded Vet...

  @DiscardedVet  
 
I get the idea, you think mouth + pee = fetish or psychological kink. I see it as Art + Pee = urinating with a smile.

What comes to you first when you hear this story probably say a lot about what you think. I thought it was fun art..

  @vet  
 
What makes you automatically assume that these are women's lips? Can a tranny not wear makeup too?

There's no actual women sitting in the restrooms acting as pee recepticals, that would be degrading. Unless the parties involved are into that sort of thing. More power to em then. Otherwise, it's a pretty neutral act. In poor taste maybe, but it's not hurting anyone.

I agree with pornoippy that if you take offense at the concept, it says more about you than it does the concept.

"....What comes to you first when you hear this story probably say a lot about what you think...."

"....if you take offense at the concept, it says more about you than it does the concept....."

I don't know how one can perceive my concept other than my comments revovling around my stance that the scenario of a mouth shaped urinal is disgusting.

If you are going to insinuiate - don't.

One only need view the situation as something of a Rorschach or word-association test to understand why some might say this is about your views. Some people look at this and see a comical, though off-color, piece of art. But for those who have a strong feeling about this being about perversion or degradation, one can infer they have some kind of axe to grind or pole to wax over the matter.

And why not infer? You've put your psych on display in revealing the first thing that came to your mind when presented with this imagery.

Despite what you find disgusting and not, why should you care how one chooses where and how they despose their waste? Personally I wouldn't want you to decide where and how I am going to use the bathroom, I personally think it is none of your business.

  lol  
 
I thought these were funny and dont see how anone except those with some sort of complex can find them offensive.

Some people dont have anything better to do with their time so take on little quests and have little parties in their heads when they 'achieve' something. It was reported by politicians, too much free time on their hands prolly.

Wonder how much shipping is on those things hehe.

This one's funnier:

  hm  
 
definitely off-color.

let's lay off discarded vet, okay people? i can see how some people would find this funny or artistic but i think it's just a little blind if you can't see where discarded vet is coming from. women and degradation of such is a sensitive issue, and just because it comes to mind doesn't make anyone a bad person.

i think a few people here have been too harsh and might owe discarded vet a little apology.
 
  by: midgica   11/03/2006 02:11 AM     
  Haha  
 
Thats pretty funny! Id piss in it. But that doesn't mean im degrading to women.

Discarded vet just needs to lighten up. No apology needed!
 
  by: turkman   11/03/2006 04:46 AM     
  hmm  
 
i'm not trying to be mean like, just saying people have a load of different views
 
  by: pornohippy   11/03/2006 05:06 AM     
  lol  
 
i think it's fair to say that people have a load of different views. :)
 
  by: midgica   11/04/2006 06:09 AM     
  Funny but not a fetish  
 
Hilarious....sexiest? Give me a break..

If women had penis shaped taps there wouldn't be an outcry of sexism.

  @mr-anderson  
 
If they had penis shaped taps, it'd makeit very hard to have kids ^_^
 
  by: jediman3     11/05/2006 02:06 AM     
  rofl jediman, probably true  
 
but on a more serious note, to mr-anderson, the women wouldn't be urinating on the penises, and even if they were, it's true that it wouldn't be as much of a cultural issue because we don't live in a culture where men are traditionally threatened or degraded by women. this is definitely not to say that men *cannot* be threatened or degraded by women, but that it is not a significant threat; whereas almost all women are afraid at one point in their lives of being raped, and 1 in 4 girls have been sexually abused by the age of nineteen. you can see that this is a sensitive issue.

the urinals are definitely in bad taste. i think most of us can agree on that. whether or not they are unacceptable to have available for use in public is a matter of opinion, but i think we should all be able to see why some people are upset.
