So, I got a nice ‘free’ voucher to use on fetise.com
Excited, I went up there, to check on ‘Men’s fashion and other stuff’.
Notice that Man and Men is prominent on the Fetise.com mailer and communication.
Quickly, I discovered some bizarre stuff to buy:
Hey – I hate milk!
I dunno what is ‘Cleansing Milk’? Is it something to drink or rub or pour on myself???
Errrr…. Pardon me, but this kinda stuff sounds a bit too feminine to me…
Also, for the record, I don’t know of many men who use any kind of ‘milk’ on their bodies.
For the benefit of doubt and to make this blog post fair, I asked Salil Mahadik, Rohit Nair, Tejas Shah, Vivek Manghnani and Raj Menon who were around me at the office at the time if they used ‘Cleansing Milk’.
They all grinned and smiled and said, “NO”!
Raj Menon said, “Alok, it’s in my bathroom and my mom’s bathroom. I know that ladies use it.”
Ok, so maybe we are barbarian Men, and should use milk on our bodies.
I probed a bit further on the site, and stumbled upon:
Now, boss, I swear, this is something a Man ain’t ever gonna use!
Soap Rose & Honey with Rose Petals??????????
When I run it against my body, will I smell of Honey, or of Rose, or Half-Honey and Half-Rose???
What will the rose petals do? Will they give me a smooth skin?? Will they take away my wrinkles? Will they make me fair?
Dude, if this is the way fully funded and established e-commerce sites are targeting their consumers, then someone and something is really broken.
The VCs, the promoters and everyone else need to use some of this Milk and Honey and Rose and Petals on themselves and kinda wake up.
Oh, wait a minute. I hope Fetise isn’t meant for Men who have had a Sex Change recently?
