    A local store in St. Louis, MO that is part of the Lush bath/beauty product franchise is having some of their staff work in nothing but aprons today.

    Would you go to a business that has a naked staff in it? Would you take your children? What are your thoughts on this campaign?

    I would go if they were hot. :D But seriously, I wouldn't not go because they're naked. I might not go because it was a gross sight to see. However, I assume they make sure the employees are attractive anyway.

    I wouldn't mind so much taking my kids. There's nothing wrong with nudity. I wouldn't take them to a strip club (unless they were 18 at least), but that's because that is a very sexualized nudity.

    I have in the past, so I guess I might. I wouldn't go buy soap just because the sales staff were naked, though.

    I don't have any, but if I did, I probably wouldn't.

    I think that if you need to use nudity to sell soap, it's probably not very good soap. :D

    The one male doing this must either be gay or have a seriously disciplined member.

    I think so, too. In fact, I wish I could go over there to see what they have to sell since I wouldn't mind buying products that don't contribute as much packaging waste. And yeah, I'd bring my kids with me. They'd have a giggle fit while I get to shop.

    The problem is that the Galleria mall is around an area in St. Louis that is under really heavy construction, and it's very inconvenient for me and our family schedule to just hop in the car and drive over there.

    Maybe I'll go some other time when I can.

    I believe "Aveda" has the same idea..all of their packaging is from recycled material...And Im pretty sure they dont use any plastic whatsoever...

    I think its a wonderful cause..and definately something worth getting naked over.. :yes:

    Love

    Geez, almost every day the RF Staff are working naked as marketing ploy, but nobody starts threads on whether that's inappropriate or savvy. Would you let your children post in a thread started by a naked person? Probably, since you posted in one already. Sicko.

    I'm sorry, doesn't this go against forum rules? Jeez. :p

    And, BTW, why do you think I started coming here in the first place?

    I thought you came in response to an advert from RF looking for a new Forum Idiot?
