Women Are Braiding Their Hair Like Unicorn Horns and It Is Truly Magical

What Do You Think of Boob-Boosting Contests?

Well, this is just great. V20, a nightclub in Long Beach, California, was having a hard time drawing crowds. And then a promoter came up with a brilliant scheme. "We just thought that the number-one reason people come to the club is, of course, girls," said promoter Jason DeLeon."So how would we attract that demographic? Plastic surgery. It's what they're into."

Leon created a contest called the Spring Break Breast Augmentation Contest Series, in which college-aged women compete in apple-bobbing contests and limbo competitions. (How low can you go, indeed.) The winner receives a free breast augmentation. And why did these women participate? "To get boobs. More self-esteem," one said. "It's always nice to get free boobies," another explained.

Another contest for free ta-tas begins next month. I think the whole thing is a sad sign of the times, but maybe I'm just old-fashioned. What are your thoughts on this contest?

They do that at clubs here in hawaii already :) it's pretty disgusting. I haven't been to one of the events yet, not planning on it. I think I'd be too freaked out/disgusted lol

getting a breast augmentation is fine, if you are deformed, but seriously, these girls are ok with competing to get bigger breasts? thats pathetic and sad.

i'm totally OK with the idea of breast augmentation, but i'm not OK with the idea of women accepting free ones. breast augmentation is a serious surgery that can have serious side effects and could potentially be life threatening. these surgeries should be considered deliberately and only appropriate & skilled doctors should be considered.

I tried to top this with a witty remark asking what would be next and giving an extreme example, but you really can't top this sexist crap.

I don't think it's the girls who have no self-respect, but they are letting themselves be exploited, to a certain degree. Obviously, it depends on the individual - if they're aware that it's potentially exploitative, and they proceed with it, well, the institutions ARE the ones losing the money. *shrugs* It's still a slightly repulsive idea, but...I'd really encourage not lumping every girl who participates in this as having "no self respect". That's not our place.

You can't even blame the club for this one because the women are obviously willing to do it. It's sad and pathetic that they would compete for this. Why not love your body for what it is.

Yeah, you may get a free boob job, but, correct me if I'm wrong, don't you have to go back and get a touch-up every few years? I doubt the club would pay for that.

I'd never ever do it, but nobody is holding a gun to the heads of the ladies participating. I think it's genius! The nightclub is making money, and the ladies participating get free boobs. And most likely the women participating would be getting boobies anyway, this way they just get them for free. Still, it's slightly demeaning towards women, why do we never see this stuff about men?

Pretty lame...but you know there would be a bunch of girls all over this type of contest.

One of the stupidest things ever. Even if these women are choosing to participate, this is still pathetic. And this specific part grossed me out (well the whole thing does):"To get boobs. More self-esteem," one said. "It's always nice to get free boobies," another explained.

If I wanted a boob job, I'll tell ya the last place I'd go for money is this place. I have pride. The club may be exploiting these women, but they allow it. What's wrong with old fashioned? Get a second job or just stop buying all the crap you buy and save for it. Or how about this....use a surgeon that lets you pay in installments!
