Sin City Nightclub this week launched posters of well-endowed, lingerie-clad women holding a sign saying "Win a boob job worth $10,000", the Gold Coast Bulletin said.
Nightclub owner Jamie Pickering said male and female patrons at the April 3 Ibiza-themed party at the heart of the promotion would be given scratchie-style tickets that would give them either minor prizes or, if their scratchie dictated, a chance to enter the ticket in the barrel for the "boob job" draw.
However, a disclaimer on the promo poster states the prize is actually $10,000 cash, with the nightclub simply suggesting a boob job as a way to spend the windfall.
Women's Network Australia founder Lynette Palmen said the marketing ploy was aimed at the ''inflated-ego Kardashian crowd'' while a spokesman for the Department of Justice and Attorney-General said the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation was investigating the promotion.
So why does this promotion stand out to the Women's Network Australia? Every day some women get breast enhancement surgery. Surprisingly, every day some women get breast reduction surgery. I know! but it really happens. I know two women who have had reduction surgery.
I'm not against the work of any groups that want to promote healthy lifestyles and positive self images of women. I find confident women who are comfortable in their own skin very attractive. Evolution has played a horrible trick on women. Men choose women for looks, its a fact. If men were wired to choose women for their softball playing skills and their nursing skills I'd be married to the softball playing nurse equivalent of Helen of Troy or perhaps even Cleopatra.
You are fooling yourself if you think that we can undo hundreds of thousands of years of evolution. Making men attracted to something other than what has been wired into their brains just isn't in the
cards genes. So the next time you see a sign promoting a boob job competition remember that you are a intelligent, sexy, confident woman and realize the contest is for the weaker of your sex who think that having big boobs is the way to a man's heart. Everyone knows that the way to man's heart is through his stomach turning a double play and then bandaging up the guy's leg you just tore a hole in with your cleats. If you want to hook a good man, who doesn't need a compass to know which way the wind shines, buy a glove, toss and the ball around and go to nursing school.
