Germans Asplutter at Naked Sushi Platter


BONN, Oct 8 (Reuters) - A German restaurant has been
attacked as "tasteless" for serving sushi on naked models
lying on top of tables. 

Brigitte Vollmer-Schubert, ombudsman for women's issues in
the central city of Hanover, said she was appalled that the
restaurant used naked women as huge "platters" for the
Japanese dish, dubbed "sushi ala Jungfrau (virgin)." 

But the restaurant owner was quoted by Bild newspaper as
saying the dish had been a huge hit and the evening-long
meal, costing up to 400 marks ($250) per person, was booked
out for weeks in advance. 

The models, usually students in their 20s, wear nothing but
see-through veils over their heads and a thin floral
decoration between their legs. They are required to lie
motionless on the table in the extra warm room. 

The sushi is spread out all over their bodies. Bodyguards
dressed as samurai warriors make sure nothing gets out of

"They aren't entirely naked," wrote Bild. "Caviare is
stuffed into their belly buttons, sword fish sushi is stuck
near their armpits and between their legs is raw tuna fish
sushi awaiting the hungry guests." 

"It's a great way to earn some pocket money," a model named
Kim told the
newspaper, saying she could earn up to 800 marks per night.
