    'Bloody hour': Israeli bar discount for women on period

    This world is getting far too complicated for me.


    In an initiative to show solidarity with menstruating women, a bar in Israel has decided to give them a 25% discount on drinks.

    The two women behind the idea in Jaffa say the "bloody hour" is a recognition that women on their period deserve "a favour".
    They hope the subject of menstruation will be more openly discussed, including by men.
    The discount will be given on the basis of trust.
    The owners of the Anna Loulou bar said that since women menstruated 25% of their lives, they deserved the discount at least for one night.
    "The whole idea is to give a discount, attention and a treat to someone, to say 'we recognize you, we're aware of the special situation you're in right now, and hey, we want to do you a favour'," Moran Barir told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

    when women are on their period, they are not supposed to drink

    so this bar plan is rather silly,

    I think it should be the men that should get the discount if he has a woman that's on the rag. Some women go off their tits and it sure as hell lasts more than one day.

    The men should get a double discount when their misses are on the cusp of period and menopause.

    Looks like it's a ladies only bar then? What kind of a male idiot would go there knowing he ain't going to shag any bint in there. They should have a similar bar where women not on 'rag dolly annie' week get cheap drinks. I know which bar I'd drink in. Plus it'd smell better.

    It makes sense. Orthodox Jews insist that menstruating women are kept in isolation. This is a way of highlighting and protesting against that.

    How do you know that the barmaid doesn't like you?


    There's a string hanging out of your Bloody Mary.

    Mussies too. Women are supposed to make up the extra fasting time in Ramadhan because it doesn't count during rag week.

    Seems only fare to me, in some societies they have to go and live in the women's house.

    Shouldn't this be in the knickers thread? Might put a final end to the smelliest thread on the forum.

    Basically the bar is advertising to potential customers with a Rainbow Kiss fetish.




    Don't knock it until you've tried it.

    Culture Vulture, are you ?

    Rainbow Kiss

    Rainbow Kiss is a play by Simon Farquhar, a Scottish writer. The script is published by Oberon Books.

    London production

    It was first staged at the Royal Court Upstairs in London in April 2006, having been chosen to occupy the theatre's 50th Anniversary slot. The production starred Joseph McFadden, Dawn Steele, Clive Russell and Graham McTavish, and was directed by actor and director Richard Wilson.


    A "dazzling Royal Court debut" wrote Michael Billington in The Guardian. "What makes the play so impressive is Farquhar's portrait of the grimness behind Aberdeen's oil-fuelled boom. This is not just another sex'n'violence play: what it grippingly shows is the disastrous effect of a money-mad materialist culture on society's marginalised no-hopers." On the other hand, Charles Spencer in The Daily Telegraph panned the play, calling Rainbow Kiss "the archetypal Royal Court play, almost indistinguishable from all the others we have seen since the arrival of the "in-yer-face" school of theatre a decade or more ago", although he asserted Farquahar "betrays flickers of real talent". Paul Taylor of The Independent agreed with Spencer that the play was a throwback to the In-yer-face theatre of the late 1990s.

    No, the disgusting jerk refers to, as Urban Dictionary puts it:
    a woman performs fellatio on a man and keeps his 'juices' in her mouth, then the man performs cunnilingus on the woman, whilst she is menstruating, and also keeps her 'juices' in his mouth, they then kiss passionately making one big assed sloppery rank-as-fuck mess.

    Absolutely disgusting. Stupid question.
    Your idea of shitting in a bag and putting it in a telco employee's car was disgusting, but this tops that.

    Don't knock it until you've tried it bud.

    Broaden those horizons mate.


    Could be the best thing you've ever done.
