Topless women attendants are getting male motorists into a lather at a new
carwash in the central Colombian city of Pereira.
The Sexy Car Wash, which opened two weeks ago, is the brainchild of Euler
Soto and features 15 young women, clad in nothing but tangas, brief
string-like bikini bottoms.
Soto told Reuters in a phone interview that while 13 of the tropical teasers
equipped with sponges and soap suds crawl provocatively over the dirty
vehicle, two others dance around it performing a striptease.
"This is the only one of its kind in South America. I found these girls in
the poor neighborhoods of the city and they loved the idea," he said. "This
is nothing like prostitution because these girls don't have to sell their
bodies to make a living. The customers love it too -- they show up five or
six to a car," Soto added.
The wash, which is already attracting more than 80 cars a day, costs $10,
about five times more expensive than one of the city's conventional
automatic car washes. The topless women workers are expected to earn $400
monthly -- three times the minimum wage. They have strict orders to turn a
high-pressure hose on any customers who make a grab for them out of the car
window, Soto explained.
He now has plans to open Sexy Car Wash 2 and 3 in Colombia's second and
third largest cities, Cali and Medellin.
College Station, Texas:
One member of a suspended Texas A&M University fraternity and the fraternity
itself have been criminally charged with hazing after a pledge lost a
testicle because of a "wedgie."
The victim, whose name was not released, was lifted off his feet by the
waistband of his underwear on October 14 at a ranch north of the university.
A grand jury indicted the Kappa Alpha fraternity and Jonathan Culpepper on
Thursday on charges of organizational hazing and individual hazing,
prosecutor Linda Stutt said.
The individual hazing charge carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and
a $4,000 fine. The organization can also be fined $10,000 or more depending
on the extent of the injury.
