Oz resort offering models, mud wrestling, massages, dubbed sexist
Melbourne, Aug 20 (ANI): A new resort in New South Wales, Australia, that offers mud wrestling, massages and sexy wake up calls from models has been criticised as sexist.
The Lynx Lodge, set to open later this year in Lake Macquarie, NSW, has been billed as the "ultimate man-cation destination".
A team of models will make up the "friendly and flexible" lodging staff and will offer on the spot back rubs, breakfast in bed and "sexy wake-up calls".
"From grabbing your wood on the golf course through to getting filthy on a dirt bike, every day at the Lynx Lodge will leave you utterly shagged," News.com.au quoted the website as stating.
Evening entertainment will include mud wrestling and games of Twister.
While many men have expressed excitement at the idea on the company's Facebook page, not everyone is thrilled, with some criticising it as "sexist" and being marketed like a "brothel".
"Sexist bull***t from Lynx again," traveller Skwidink said on YouTube.
Linkjacker also said on YouTube: "I'm sorry. No matter how you package it, it still looks like a brothel in a country holiday camp type environment."
Matt Southern said on the Lynx Lodge's Facebook page: "Get laid back? Really? Get laid. Implying something Lynx? Cheap marketing ploy."
However the company insists it's simply catering to demand and says staff will not be placed in compromising positions.
"The concept of the Lodge is a play on popular male fantasy, so the girls are there to hang out and ensure Lodge guests have fun," Lynx spokeswoman Laura O'Donnell said.
"The Lodge prides itself on fantastic customer service and staff members will ensure that all of our guests have a perfect stay, but they will not be required to do anything that compromises their positions as hospitality professionals.
"All interaction between the guests and the girls will take place in common areas of the Lodge under the watchful eye of Lodge security staff," she added. (ANI)
