  1. He heh, yeah I just read that. Okay, well it is unique if nothing else. But call me an old fart, I just don't get it.

    Like my SO other likes to say "just because you can, doesn't mean you should'.

    I mean really, what's the point? And maid, or no maid cleaning up, I would not like to be using the facilities knowing that others have just fornicated before me.

    Sorry Mildred but that's not my idea of romance.

      And to your point millygirl, I would not like to be using the facilities for fornication knowng that others have used them for their intended, eliminatory purpose just before me.

        LOL!! You make a very good point Eller. Hadn't even thought of that one!!!

    2. Does consent to sportsbar big screen CCTV coverage get us a dinner/drinks discount? What's next if business gets even worse???

      1. Wow...

        How stupid can people get?

        Not that I ever planned on going to this place anyways, but I can assure you that is no longer even a doubt in my mind - and I am confident everyone that I link to that article will feel the same way.

        Talk about a desperate ploy at marketing.

        1. I knew there would be a thread on this. I also read the article this morning and thought - WTF? Apart from me finding it not so tempting/arousing/appetizing, I also had this practical thought - what if I'm just, you know, eating my meal (as some people do in a restaurant) and I have to go to the bathroom? Am I going to have to line up and wait for someone to finish their romp or will they have any bathrooms designated for, you know, going to the bathroom????

          I found it amusing that the owner said that people have been using their bathrooms like this for some time now - long lunch breaks, etc. And the fact that the food safety people think it's all fine so long as nobody's having sex in the kitchen itself. Bizarre.

          Fair enough, it's got people talking but it's definitely not getting me excited (in any way) to go over there.

          1. Their promoting it takes the frisson out of the idea, doesn't it? The airlines don't promote their restrooms for the same purpose, but people manage.

              If you've been to Mildred's lately, you'll understand why they're resorting to this sort of stunt. It's gone to pieces, dinners especially. The food is brutal, and the place isn't full like it was in the last location—not even close, and not even for brunch.

              1. re: buttertart

                Indeed. Wouldn't the whole point of sex in a washroom be the illicit nature of it? Making it perfectly acceptable kind of takes the point away.
