Japan Gets Into ‘Naked Eating’ With Their New All-Nude Restaurant

With the ever-growing trend of naked restaurants, it’s no wonder that Japan wants to join in on all the nude, sweaty fun.

A few weeks ago, a restaurant called Bunyadi opened up in London and specializes in catering to the naked. This all-nude restaurant was made to bring people back to their primal roots. Is there anything more natural than eating in the nude? Although you are encouraged to let your loose, floppy, hanging skin droop all over the place, there is also a clothed section for people who aren’t particularly interested in penis-watching.

The food is grown locally while the men are imported from Sweden or an Ivy League College.

Well, in order to keep up, a similarly-themed restaurant called The Amrita is opening up in Tokyo, Japan, on July 29th. This restaurant, however, varies from the English counterpart in that not all are welcome. The Bunyadi invites anyone of any size or age to enjoy their food free from all the trappings of the modern world, while The Amrita requires that you meet certain…expectations.

According to Rocket News 24, The Amrita won’t be a totally nude restaurant. As is typical in Japanese culture, hygiene is taken very seriously, so guests will be provided with “paper underpants” as opposed to letting their junk rub up on everything, which would be a way cooler restaurant in my opinion.

The “paper underwear” I imagine guests are given at the door. Kinda hot TBH.

The details surrounding this new restaurant are murky at best. Many of the packages and options available range widely from 12,000-80,000 yen (or $122-$563). The rules that you’re required to follow would cause a nationwide riot if we tried to apply them to an all nude restaurant here in the states.

Firstly, you cannot be overweight to eat at this restaurant. If you are 33 lbs. or more overweight (according to the standard BMI measures applied based on your height), you will be rejected at the door with no money back. Secondly, only people between the ages of 18 and 60 are allowed in, and will require their ages to be verified at the door. Roughly 3.5% of Japan is considered obese, while we here in America are closer to the 30% range, so these rules might not be as restricting to potential guests as we might think. Still, getting turned away at the door for being too fat certainly won’t feel good.

The variety in prices makes me think these men are for sale. Is that legal? Also, anyone wanna split one with me? Could be fun.

The restaurant will also be providing a show with the dinner, and considering the overall theme, it’s likely to involve some nudity. The website, still being regularly updated, even has a tab that displays all of the scantily clad male servers that will be working at the restaurant, although it currently has a stock photo where their images are supposed to be.

I don’t know what it says, but the English words I found were still pretty entertaining.

As of now, the restaurant seems to be open for only 3 days, July 29-31, and of those three days, two of them are already completely sold out. Only time will tell if it will be worth it for these naked nibblers to visit.

A Restaurant For Nude People And Colorful Rainbow Pizza [THE KATCHUP]

If I’ve learned one thing from The Katchup, it’s that “crazy” and “food” go together like Bey and Jay. Oh, wait…

A young boy began selling lemonade in order to pay for his own adoption. Direct hit to the feels, am I right or am I right? Beyonce’s Beyhive (aka biggest fans) went into full attack mode on celebrity chef Rachael Ray after mistaking her for the woman Jay-Z is accused of having an affair with, American fashion designer Rachel Roy.

If you ever want the government to seize your Venmo funds, just write “ISIS” in the memo. One dude learned that the hard way. A new restaurant in London will cater to nude people in order to create a “natural” eating environment. Sounds like a waste of a lot of good chairs to me. Finally, somebody went out and made rainbow-colored pizza, because why the f*** not?

I hope you brought some hot dogs, because we’ve got…

THE KATCHUP!

The Bunyadi, a Pangea-themed restaurant where clothes are optional, is set to provide a totally unique dining experience in London, U.K. from June to August 2016.

Nudity in the establishment is encouraged but non-compulsory as there will be both a naked section and a clothed section, reported International Business Times. Customers will also be provided with gowns, changing rooms and lockers.

According to the restaurant’s website, customers are invited to dine free from all the trappings of the modern world — “no chemicals, no artificial colors, no electricity, no gas, no phone and even no clothes if [customers] wish to.”

Food preparation will be done naturally using a wood-flame grill for cooking and handmade clay crockery for serving. The menu will feature both vegan and non-vegan dishes cooked on wood-fire.

The Bunyadi, which means “base” or “natural” in Hindi, is a creation of Lollipop, the same company behind the popular “Breaking Bad”-themed bar in London.

“The idea is to experience true liberation,” Seb Lyall, Lollipop’s founder told the Times. “No doubt, this has been the most challenging project for us yet, which makes us very excited about it.”

The one-of-a-kind restaurant, which enforces a strict first-come first-serve basis for tickets, now has a waiting list of over 12,000.

Nestlé Trolled This Coffee Shop With Naked Baristas

Nestle-Nudity-Cafe

Nestlé found a pretty risqué way to promote its new all-natural coffee creamer…and it’s kind of working. At an Irvings Farm Coffee Roasters in New York, Nestlé built a pop-up to spread word of the new creamer. Using well-placed actors and models from an agency, customers were greeted with butt-naked baristas and fellow customers.

While they didn’t actually serve them coffee, the nude models promoted the new creamer while rocking body paint.

Check out the video below featuring footage from the one-day event.

[NSFW] This Photographer Printed Nude Portraits on Egg Shells

 

Nude Egg Cover

To say artist and photographer Jess Landau is talented would be an understatement. Landau took ordinary egg shells and turned them into a means of expression after her friend committed suicide in 2013. The delicate and breathtaking work acted as a means for her to cope with the loss.

Landau told HuffPo that she was looking for a tactile outlet to explore her curiosities. She felt that traditional materials (papers, wood, etc..) were too stable and concrete for the delicate situation of her friend’s death.

The process of getting the photos onto the egg shells Landau used was liquid emulsion, a liquid chemical that makes paper light-sensitive. Images are then able to be projected through printing process via darkroom. Using an old 35mm Minolta, Landau shot her subjects and developed the images by hand. The egg shells were chosen as a canvas because the emulsion sticks easily to them.

The process was said to be very time consuming, but Landau said it was therapeutic. She says that she hopes the portraits will remind people to treasure every moment.

While this photo may not be new to the web, it’s new to me, and hopefully new to our three or four readers out there. Apparently, a few months back while sexy McSexy singer Katy Perry was battling the flu, she tweeted this picture of herself naked, in a bath tub, eating pizza. Eat on sexy.err…Katy Perry!
