ZOO Hunting for Virgins!

Posted by charliegrrl on August 14, 2006

ZOO have this week an article entitled “Wanted: UK’s Hottest Virgin’s“:
“The search is on. Do you know a lady who is still ‘intact’ and willing to appear in ZOO?…
Lalmas have hymens. So do moles, guinea pigs and even whales…but for this exciting feature, ZOO requires only human hymens, intact and attatched to great-looking females. Why?”

[charliegrrl: because you are wanting to satisfy your paedophillic urges..?
because you view women as little more than holes to stick your dick inside..?]

“Because we’re searching the land for the UK’s hottest virgins…Yes, that’s you, unfeasibly sexy virgin woman. With the hymen. And the confidence to lead a man up the garden path before saying no. In recognition of your ability…to remain imperforated by man, ZOO would like you to send [in] as sexy a shot of yourself…” (pg 17)

You mean photos including the hymen…?
Cos how are you going to know if they have hymens..?
Is one of the conditions of entry that the women don’t use tampons…? Or do rigorous excercise..?
These are things to consider if you want an ‘intact hymen’ to perforate..?
Maybe they aren’t virgins…and are just pandering to your desire for masturbation material that bolsters your sense of male prowess, to get money..?
And also, do the women have to be over 18…? Cos it doesn’t say in the qualifications for entry..?

ZOO have included two photos of the winner of the Kerrang! radio station’s, ‘Search for a Virgin’ competition:
“Hello to Christina…, 19, a model from Manchester whose sex cavity thus far remains uncharted by man”
Yes, you read that correctly, DJ Tim Shaw from Kerrang! 105.2FM’s Asylum show, hosted a ‘Search for a Virgin’ competition. And the winner is now featured half naked in ZOO.
In fact this radio show has quite a few porn features, including…
‘…Lucy gets offered a Gangbang!’
Glamour Model…in the studio!’
‘5 sexy ladies from Medusa gentleman’s club came down to the studio with a chocolate fountain, with one mission – to cover their bodies..!’
Hmm…it’s interesting this porn content and this partnership between ZOO and Kerrang… It’s like a radio show for porn-loving lads mags readers. I suppose it’s cos Kerrang belongs to the same parent group as ZOO and FHM- that being EMAP

    Time to boycott Kerrang. Though I never really liked them anyway.

    It’s a shame they weren’t after male virgins- I’d imagine that most of their staff would be able to volunteer.

    I’m sure that ‘men’ only want virgins so that they (the virgins) cannot compare the crappy porn-educated sexual performance of porn users, to that of a decent and caring lover.

    And I’m confused. ‘Men’ who want virgins, also want all women to be sexually available to them at all times. Virgin and slut in one package. How’s this gunna work?

    Jaysus, that’s a hell of a lot of porn content. I can’t actually believe it. WOMEN: like rock music? Well you can only be part of the gang if you suck our dicks and pretend to like it! Now bend over while I demean you on national radio.

    I hope Tim Shaw drowns in a pool of vomit. And I hope Juicy Lucy (the co-presenter) comes to her senses. I also hope she hasn’t been subjected to sexual harrasment while on the show, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she had.

    Incidentally, the equally delightful Chris Moyles told the woman in his team to get back in the kitchen the other day. Get back in your cave, Chris, and stay there.

  7. I ALMOST FUCKING VOMITED WHEN I READ THAT?! AND IF THE WOMEN SEND IN PICS … !? DO THEY APPRECIATE
    THEY’RE FUCKING PANDERING TO PAEDOPHILLIC TENDENCIES?!!! THIS MUST BE STOPPED?

  9. I’m not sure what is going on with these young women. I can’t imagine myself at 18 wanting to pose naked for a lads mag, or offer myself up as bate for the virgin-loving media.
    We are seeing a shift in culture- I suppose it’s called raunch culture, where young women think that glamour modelling is a good career avenue, and posing half-naked for men is sexually liberating. We need to resist porn culture.

    I know this sounds old-fashioned…but if I’d posed naked for lads mags or entered a ‘virgin’ competition when I was 18, my parents would have had a few words to say about it. My friends would have been embarassed too.

  10. Women’s sexual boundaries have gradually eroded away. Some of us have become no more than puppets; all of this is men’s interpretation of OUR sexuality. Empowering? Power an empire? An empire of fucking what? An empire of plastic porn dollies with three holes, two hands and a pair of plastic tits! VERY empowering.

  11. ‘…Lucy gets offered a Gangbang!’

    Reads Lucy gets offered to be raped by many men. Maybe my post on the “congo” might put it into context for these wanna be rapists.
    I will say it again; these men’s sexual violent tendencies are delicately hanging by a thread. Waiting like a dog for an opportunity, a green light.

    I’m sure reality TV and “celebrity” culture which promises girls fame if they look a certain way has a lot to do with it. Young people need to be noticed and heard. Unfortunately, girls’ voices are routinely silenced, and perhaps they think by posing in magazines they can infiltrate the media at large and say, “I’m here. Now listen to me.” But of course, they will be silenced all the more. It’s very, very sad.

    Me, too, Charliegrrl. I’m 42 years old and I can still hear my dad’s voice commanding me to “Go put on some long pants.” LOL! Patriarchal or not, I’m glad that he was there to do that and did it. He taught his daughters AND his sons to be modest in appearance.

    For the trolls, before you even start, I have and always have had a “beautiful” body, as dictated by media and cultural standards. That’s probably why my dad wanted me to “go put on some long pants.” He’s a sexist pig himself and thought just like you do. So don’t even go there.

    This stuff about Kerrang! is infuriating- although the magazine itself does not treat females as equal to men, it comes across more enlightened than some other rock mags, and I certainly couldn’t see them getting away with printing similar stuff to what they air on their radio station.

    I’m going to send an e-mail of complaint. Maybe if they realise female listeners/readers are finding this stuff offensive, it’ll give ’em something to think about- if they can locate some braincells first of course.

    Sex cavity? WTF!

    ‘uncharted by man’ – all hail the conquering ‘hero’ with over-inflated ego, with conversely tiny phallus!

    Here’s a thought for the little boys – ram your unwanted members up each other – leave us the fuck alone.

    Bubba, oh Bubba, got a job for you…

    CoolAunt:
    Charliegrrl has now made this a troll-free zone. The trolls can no longer contaminate this blog with their vile misogynistic poison. In a word, yippee!
    Who gives a fuck about their ‘free speech’ or ‘debate’ (yeah copycrap, I’m talkin’ to you) waah, waah, waah, talk to the hand baby…

    My father was the same (and I am of similar vintage). Over the years though, he has changed quite a bit, possibly from my many years of putting him in his place every time he put women/woman down. It does work (eventually)!

  17. Disgraceful.

    The same Emap sexist pigs editing, writing and creating these pervy publications to pedal it would seem.

    What do men find so endearing about this trash?

    Gah, so a cock is a charting device now is it? So why do i always have to struggle with the sodding road atlas?

    This is fucked up. Women are being related to animals.

    YOu are absolutely right. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I not only complained, but I am writing to encourage you to keep fighting. You are not alone. You do not need to justify your feminism. You have inspired us also to not give up the fight though it seems we are all alone.
