MARKETING PLOY - TACKY AS

The news that the 'Shh - Adult Fun Spot' brothel in Hawera is holding an 'Open Home' purportedly in support of the charity 'Kai Kitchen' with provides meals to some 40 children in the district is nothing more than a tacky attempt of self-promotion.

The Open Home (restricted to Adults) will see staff members giving members of the public tours of the brothel and answering their questions .... the mind boggles ... how often do you change the sheets,  or how much for a ....?

I would have much more respect for the owner of the brothel (who is also a committee member of Kai Kitchen) if she had made a private donation to the charity rather the pimping on children to promote her business.

Tacky as ....

Is this, objectively and dispassionately, any different from a nursery conducting gardens tours as a fund-raiser?

No but still very tacky.

Tacky commercial activity camouflaged to look corporate and caring. Load of cap.

Its the kind of fund raising that leaves a bad taste in your mouth or feeling shafted. Where money comes from is important.

The founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth, once was criticised for accepting 'tainted' money from brothel owners. He is quoted as saying:-

"The only thing wrong with tainted money is that I can't get enough of it."

There is a story, supposedly true, of Lord Birkenhead (FE Smith ) who was called upon by an English High Court Judge to assit in the sentencing of a man for sodomy.
The judge asked "What should one give a man who allows himself to be buggered?"
The response
" Oh, thirty shillngs, two pounds - whatever you have on you at the time."
