Take a shower with an ax-murderer

Beautiful bathroom but the guy standing in the shower would freak me out in the middle of the night.


But as disturbing as it looks when it's just standing there. It's even worse when it comes to life. This thing is somewhere between creepy and obscene, I can't figure out which.

It sprays!


It spits!


It can make what's probably the strangest product photo I've ever seen.


This Shower Sculpture is the Aquantass by Bagno Sasso. I understand being provocative but this is really taking provocation to the edge. Bagno Sasso ought to change their name to Bagno Sesso.

About the mildest thing this shower reminds me of is an ax-murderer. What do you guys think? Is this the only option left when a body pillow won't cut it anymore?

  1. A brilliant find, Paul... Not a big fan of a stranger being in the shower rather uninvited, and I surely don't want to have to drape myself all over him to wash the shampoo out of my hair.

    After this, I'm one step closer to having "seen it all".

  2. This gives me all sorts of mental pictures I never wanted.

  3. Have we become this bored with our lives?

  4. I'm still trying to figure out if it's a joke or not. I look at the product shots and I think "Nah, they can't be serious" but then I see who's making it and I think "Wait a minute, they ARE serious."

  5. Well, sex sells, but after a while... To me it's like the bimboes that I occasionally interviewed when I was still in the 9 to 5 world. Pretty to look at, but when you'd said that, you'd said it all. I never hired any. I wouldn't have this, um, whatever the hell it is in my shower either. The bimbo might be nice, but I'm happily married!

  6. I have not been able to stop laughing at this thing? I look at it (okay I am a pervert) but it looks like you are suppose to try and "F" this thing until it climaxes and you can take your shower in a torrent of bodily fluids. There has to be a version with a body spray to make it complete.

    The jokes about this thing are filling my head so fast I'm about to pass out

  7. It was hard to write this post and keep it commerce- and family-friendly, that's for sure.

  8. Finally! A woman weighs in. Do you find this thing as disturbing as I do?

  9. Yikes!! What's the appeal of a plastic guy spitting water on you?? Yucky!! Now, if he was a life size version of Simon Baker that would massage my back with a loofah sponge, that would be a whole other thing ;-)

    Thanks for the tip about the mosquito net hat. There are times when fashion has to be set aside for function!!

  10. Yeah uhm disturbing and trying not too overthink it. Not to mention ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Oh, and Kelly, those things will save your sanity.

  12. Considering that it spits water out of his mouth.. I was surprised that it didn't have a penis too. But that could just be me and my coffeeless morning..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thank you for saying it Nim so that I didn't have to.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I wouldn't be surprised if this thing came with accessories - a detachable penis. That sprays, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  15. And thank you Melody. I don't know why I was dancing around it so much but I thought the same thing initially.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Melody, I'ma have to go listen to some King Missile now. And get some eye bleach.

  17. I'm more surprised this was OKed by management for production than that it was ever even conceived.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Can you imagine being the sales rep charged with selling it?

    ReplyDelete
  19. It looks like something we'd see on the show Nip/Tuck. My little girl hated when I took a shower when she was really little. She'd stand at the shower door and cry and cry. I can only imagine how traumatized she'd be if I would have gotten into the shower with a faux daddy.

  20. And did you see the pictures on the Aquantass site with the woman wearing a hijab/embroidered ninja outfit?

    ReplyDelete
  21. can it make spouting babies? just saying... could get very crowded in there.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sharon: Faux daddy --perfect!

    Kim: Oh you bet I saw those photos and I wasn't going to touch it with a ten foot pole. I need a fatwah declared against me like I need a hole in the head.

    Cindy: I wonder if that's a question I can direct to the manufacturer...

  23. "And get some eye bleach."
    yeah that.
    LOL! You find the most incredible things, Paul.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I forgot about the eye bleach crack. Hilarious. I love finding this crap but I love having a group of people who appreciate my finds just as much.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Aaaaaack, here I'm back after a leisurely day off and now this???? Axe not so much, it's more of a really sharp knife kind dude...wtf???

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm not sure which is more hilarious - your post about it or all the comments.

    In the meantime, I'll be over in the corner here, vainly attempting to scrub my brain....

    ReplyDelete
  27. V: Really sharp something...

    Kelly: I swear, I post thing like this just to see how the conversational drift will flow.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The woman in the photos is demonstrating the attachment.

    ReplyDelete
  29. How many heights does it come in? Just wondering! LOL. Sorry, had to go there!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I you could make that thing bend at the knee, it could double as a bidet.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm laughing my head off and completely baffled. Are they really serious? What exactly was going on at that product development meeting when this idea was pitched?

    "How about a man-shaped inanimate object that sprays water? Isn't that what every woman really wants in her shower?"

    Thanks for the Friday laugh. - Kathy

    "Brilliant! Let's move this meeting to the neighborhood Gentleman's Club and talk over possible product shots."

    ReplyDelete
  32. WHERE CAN I GET ONE???? uh... I mean, Yeah that's totally weird. *nervous laugh*

    ReplyDelete
  33. I know the theme music for the ad campaign. Paul McCartney's "No More Lonely Nights" from 1984. To wit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmGqwTYPDDA

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ok, I am cracking up. That is either creepy of perverted. No thanks to the strange human form thing in my shower.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Why limit yourself to either or Marilyn, it's both!

    ReplyDelete
  36. And here's another shower that taste forgot!

  37. . . . I am disturbed. I think I would have to give up bathing if I were somehow occupying this house.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Tim: I've seen that stag shower before but I've never seen it in action. What kind of a spray pattern would come out of a stag's head one wonders...

    Cham: You have been making the rounds today, thanks!

  39. Been laughing so hard I'm crying. Had to look at http://actinglikeanimals.com/2010/07/05/interspecies-love-calendar-edition/ to clean the brain out!

    ReplyDelete
  40. It does take a while to recover from seeing this, yes.

  41. For the person who has everthing???????????

  42. it's definitely freaky!

    but if it can scrub my back, maybe i'd consider. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, that even beats out the 24k gold womens' floor urinal as the strangest bathroom fixture I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hmmm, a 24k gold floor urinal for women, now that's something I'd like to see. Is is just a squat toilet?

    You're in Millersville? Small world, I was born in Lancaster.
