French politicians and feminists are requesting the closure of a French cleaning company website which uses young women dressed as French maids in sexy lingerie to clean houses. The Sensual Clean Service company directed at fulfilling male
fantasies as part of their service, has sparked nutter 'uproar' in France.
The company offers maids to clean clients houses dressed erotically, fitting the French maid bill. They only recruit women with impeccable bodies and good looks, to fit
the role which charges between 95 and 150 Euros per hour, which feminists have said distorts and insults the female image .
The 'cleaning' is performed in a sensual way to please the client. It is, however clearly stated on the website that
it is not a sex service, nor do they offer any illegal activities , insisting that the Lady Clean (the maid) stick to a strict no touching policy.
The service, which is run across France is highly popular with their male
audience, however French women are 'enraged'.
City mayor for Venissieux, Michelle Picard described it as the objectification of young women, declaring the company to determine how legal their services are.

South Korea to amend laws which currently only restrict female hostesses
See article from
Police will soon be able to crack down on sexy fun at so called host bars, where male staff fulfill the desires of female customers .
Representative Yoon Sang-il of the Future No Hope Alliance said that he is seeking a revision of the
Food Hygiene Law, which currently defines those engaged in such entertainment as women who drink with customers or who entertain customers with singing or dancing.
The lawmaker seeks to change the word women to people to
include men, establishing the legal grounds to harass bars that offer male prostitution or 'other illegalities', presumably referring to lady boy bars.
The current law only governs females, and the loophole in the law leads to the proliferation
of bars with men offering illegal services, Yoon said.
The Ministry of Miserable Gender Equality and women's groups welcomed the move but the health ministry is showing a more cautious approach, saying social consensus is needed on the issue.
According to a recent report by the Seoul Shinmun, about 100 host bars are currently operating in Gangnam, attracting some 10,000 customers a day, many of which are engaged in male prostitution. The total sales in the area are estimated at 30
billion won ($26.9 million) per year, and the figure may be much higher if the illegal sex trade is included. Some 3,000 men work there serving female customers.
