G-Spirits is a German liquor company promoting an alcohol line that is supposedly poured on the breasts of models.
According to the NY Daily News, G-Spirits founders had this to say about their product: "It's not just the taste which makes you enjoy a drink fully. Good
flavour is the basis, the conveying feeling, the highlight. However, for us there is nothing more than
the erotism of a beautiful woman."

Would you drink it?
Women's bodies are often used to
hawk product. I can't speak to the motivation of these women, but it
would be irresponsible to refrain from questioning. There are plenty of
women who cater to men by behaving in ways that they believe will appeal
to them. In return there is some sort of payoff. I suppose that payoff
is different for each individual. An all too common reason is a feeling
of perceived empowerment and flattery.
It's nice to feel admired
and wanted, but some are willing to go further than others. I have no
interest in pushing men to eroticize the idea of consuming me in some
way. For others; perhaps it is the ultimate compliment.
It's not always easy to agree to
disagree and it has nothing to do with pride. Women using their bodies
to sell product affects me in that it promotes the on going belief that
women are expected to make themselves available to men in this way.
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
