Super sized sex den: would you like thighs with that?
We shop in supermarkets because we love the choice. We guzzle supersized drinks. We flock to superhero movies because we love the action, and when there’s horizontal action on the menu, apparently we’re red hot for super brothels too - unless they’re somewhere where we actually live.
The NSW land and Environment Court has given the green light for a really big red light in Sydney’s inner west. Plans for the expansion of the existing Stiletto brothel were originally rejected after a local Liberal councillor called it the “Westfield of brothels”.
There is no suggestion the councillor was referring to the likelihood of a two dollar knock shop appearing on the premises right beside a Mister Minit. Though when you think about it…
Anyway, so there’s going to be a really big brothel on Sydney’s Parramatta Road which won’t be as big as developers had hoped, but will be bigger than the existing one.
Some residents are concerned that the brothel is directly across the road from two institutions specialising in animal behaviour. One is the Sydney University Animal Hospital. The other is St John’s College.
Others are outraged that anyone will be performing commercial activities in the area unrelated to the spilling of frothy milk – or at least the spilling of frothy cow’s milk.
These Sydney inner west nimbys really are hypocrites, aren’t they?
They move in under the flight path, then complain about aircraft noise. They buy an apartment near Parramatta Road, which has been a busy thoroughfare since, oh, about 1794, then whinge about the traffic and all those pesky local businesses.
There’s a similar fight on nearby Victoria Rd, Rozelle, over the proposed expansion of the Balmain Leagues Club. That development has been knocked back for now, because the local blow-in nimbys don’t like (a) the sport of rugby league which has flourished in the area for a century and (b) the prospect of traffic on Australia’s busiest arterial road.
God it’s depressing. If these people would just read the fine print of the Land and Environment Court decision, they’d see that sex workers at Stiletto will be able to service just one and a half clients each, instead of the projected three.
Seriously, the place will have all the village charm you read about in the real estate brochures.
But no. All those residents just want to whinge abut all those men rooting away in one building. These, mind you, are the same people who insist on flying on the A380. What do they think happens upstairs in business class?
