You might have read by now about the poo themed cafe that’s coming to Koreatown in Toronto next month. It’s been all over the news.
Poop Café Dessert Bar, will be located at 706 Bloor St. W., according to the Toronto Star. The owner Lien Nguyen told the outlet, “I’m trying to make poop cute,” saying she got the idea after visiting a toilet themed restaurant in Taiwan.
“I just loved it. It’s funny to put food and poop together; it’s a great comparison.” She says she hopes “people will change their minds about poo… [It’s] considered very disgusting, [something] you can’t talk about when you’re eating.”
Yeah. Not to crap on anyone’s dreams but it’s considered disgusting for a reason: because it is disgusting. We have an aversion to pairing shit and food because it’s a biological imperative that keeps us alive. You avoid poo, which is full of deadly bacteria, because if you ate it you could die. I see no urgency to change people’s minds about it.
But what do I know? There are toilet themed cafes in Moscow, Seoul, and the Philippines, so maybe people just want to eat poo.
Anyhoodle, I bring up the crap cafe only to report that it’s now old news, since there are blowjob cafes opening soon in Geneva, Switzerland and London,UK. Mashable reports that the Fellatio Cafe (“fellatio” is classy for “blow job”) will open in Geneva on December 5. It seems a spokesperson says they’re not concerned about legal issues and that it “will be organised and controlled.”
Bradley Charvet said, “The project is in progress. At the moment, our lawyer is doing the job to get the right stuff done.”
According to the website fellatees will choose their fellaters on an iPad. Currently only men can get fellated but the site says not to worry because they’re “considering to propose a service for female customers.” You can get fellated in the cafe or, if you’re shy, there will also be booths.
Online reaction has been not entirely supportive.
I keep hoping this is some kind of terrible joke that I don’t really get: London to get coffee and fellatio cafe https://t.co/7f0HdZ2yGb

But I believe in sex workers’ rights to safely ply their trade so I can’t find a real problem with this myself.
Thoughts? Would you sip a cappuccino while getting head? Or eat ice cream shaped like poo?
