Naughty name for an energy drink

And, predictably, the Tankard lady doesn't like it. She writes:
""Pussy is great by itself, but you know sharing with friends, it's nice to experiment and I would recommend sharing pussy with friends."

Where did I find these quotes? Comments posted on a porn site? Men discussing their sexual preferences perhaps? No, they're found in this promotion for an energy drink called Pussy. These words were uttered through the dazzling teeth of Sam Branson and filmed at the Kensington Roof Gardens owned by daddy Sir Richard Branson.

The video's opening frame states the company's mission is for "Global Pussyfication." It appears they are succeeding.

Three thousand retailers in the UK alone can't get enough of it. It's even in Tesco. And Selfridges. And on Virgin trains (maybe the planes are next - surely Richard Branson will see the cross-promotional opportunities in combining the company names?).

The beverage is now in 18 countries worldwide, including Australia where it can be found in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

The porn-inspired name encourages boys and men to dissect women and see them only in terms of their sexual body parts. "Pussy is great by itself," as Branson Junior informs us, as though it is an inanimate object not connected to a real flesh and blood woman. All women are collapsed as pussy, to be shared and consumed by men.

This product is part of the widespread sexploitation of women and girls. The mainstreaming of the drink treats women and girls as objects and is part of the sexual harassment of women and girls, especially given plans to saturate Queensland with the product.

Actually that's not a bad idea, could be a time saver when dating. If they make a drink called "Cock" and market it to women then when a guy is looking to talk to a woman all he has to do is look and see if she has a "Cock" in her hand, if not, she probably wont be interested. Same is true for women, if the guy has his fingures on a "pussy" she can talk to him.

In America, this is what used to be called a 'joke'. 'Jokes' were prohibited by the US Supreme Court in a landmark decision in early 2013, right before the republican nominee was inaugurated president. The case was 'ACLU v. normal human beings with senses of humor' and, unfortunately, normal human beings lost with the majority opinion co-written by Sotomayor and Kagan.

You know, these femi-nazis talk about self-esteem and empowerment, then talk about crap like this. They are actually the ones with no self-esteem. I see this as a joke, and LMAO. Yes, the occasional jerk has seen me as only a sex object, but I have never felt that was the majority of men. Hey, if women were nothing but a hole to stick something in, men would have no commitment issues. A hole is a hole so pick one and stick with it right? I for one LOVE the fact that men are fascinated with us. I do not feel diminished by it. It is but one part of who I am, and not a part that I feel a need to minimize. I am WOMAN, watch me jiggle. It'll distract you while I take over the world!! ;)

All women like (or would like it if possible) to be considered a sex-object when they are in the mood to be sexy. Unfortunately they give men mixed signals and expect men to read them correctly or be condemned as either inappropriately sexist or unappreciative/uncaring!!

Anon 2:53: Your post reminds me of my neighbor who has gigantic breast implants.. I was walking past their patio on the way to the parking lot and I overheard her telling her friend one day about how upset she is that its not only good looking guys that stare at her giant breasts.. She apparently has to deal with ugly fat guys ogling her too and she wishes their was a way to stop them from being able to do it..

And Liz, were you saying something? I couldnt take my eyes off the jiggle..

"The porn-inspired name encourages boys and men to dissect women and see them only in terms of their sexual body parts."

Welcome to Real Life!!!! When a male older than 12 years looks at a hot woman, there is exactly one thing he is thinking about, and it isn't "I hope I'm not objectifying her." Men have always seen women "in terms of their sexual body parts," and they always will, no matter how much the humorless feminist hags whine.

Us men are sexual creatures. If we weren't, the human race would have ceased to exist a very long time ago. When I look at a hot female, the first thing I think about is "I want to **** her."

When feminist hags complain about hot half-naked chicks being used to advertise products they always blame the men for being scumbags. But what about the women in those ads? They did it VOLUNTARILY...it seems a lot of women don't mind being treated like sex objects, especially when they voluntarily dress that way (which, by the way, I completely support).

Personally, I hate energy drinks. But I play to buy a case of this and give it to my lesbian evil minion. And I'll offer to "double team a pussy" first time I give her one just to see the look on her face. Someone has to drive this joke into the ground...
