What German physicians will be spanking their stethoscopes to this year.




(click images) And you thought Hustler centerfolds were clinical. Japanese Computer display company EIZO wanted to promote its high-end monitors to doctors. So, via their German ad agency Butter, they put out the most revealing pinup calendar ever. I'm assuming the mailing list was mostly male docs. The calendar just won a gold pencil at the New York One Show awards. Reportedly der Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld is handing them out to his female models as inspirational presents. Previous promotional pinup calendars: UK Army Garrison GirlsRussian plumbing companyRyanairItalian coffin company.

So, you're not going to mention how weird and inappropriate this is?

It's pretty self evident. I get tired of soap-boxing; I alluded to the obvious sexism with the male mailing list comment.

Per having seen some fMRIs in my time and some pixels, these are clearly CAD-shopped.

@ anonymus: obviously you haven't seen a lot of x-ray images in your time, otherwise you wouldn't mix up fMRI and x-ray imaging.

Copyranter, in your opinion, what is the most obviously sexist aspect of what you called the "obvious sexism" of this calendar? Dunno about you, but I was a tad jarred by the jokey pornification of a female skeleton. I had no idea that 21st century Germany had become so 'sophisticated' when it comes to gallows humor. Thoughts?

Makes you realize how strange & unnatural these "sexy" poses actually are without the distraction of bulging body parts, clothing and makeup that we usually focus on. Kind of sickening.

Very creative, fascinating and yes- sexy.

Naturally, femi-Nazis don't like anything sexy, so we can ignore them.
