“The Daily Show” Gives Us A New Kind Of Sexy Halloween Costume

By: Amanda Crum - October 23, 2013

“The Daily Show” didn’t pull any punches recently when evaluating the latest Halloween costumes for women; as Senior Women’s Issues Correspondent Kristen Schaal says, why be “coy” with a sexy nurse outfit when you could just go for the whole enchilada?

“Ladies, why are you being so coy about this?” Schaal asked as she introduced a new costume, the “Sexy Vagina”, onstage. “Why don’t we just show everyone what we mean when we put on those sexy kitty carrot nurse costumes, and take things to the obvious next level. What better way to get everyone thinking about sex than dressing up as the place where sex happens?”

Of course, Halloween has long been a tradition in sexiness for women; as “Mean Girls” so eloquently put it, it’s the one night a year when girls can dress as slutty as they want by wearing lingerie and some form of animal ears.

“Isn’t it great?” Schaal said. “The fact that women get this one night, only one, out of the whole year to be viewed as sexual objects.”

Lately, it seems like costumers have gone a bit off the rails with the sexy theme, however; Sexy Ear of Corn might be my favorite. It’s a little disconcerting to walk into a costume shop and see rows of outfits for guys that include doctor, superhero, or beloved film character but find only “Sexy Nun”, “Sexy Wench”, or “Sexy French Maid” for the ladies (and now, “Sexy Pizza”, apparently?).

This costume might be next on the shelves.

    Stewart and Colbert are two very funny guys. They always come up with some sort of nonsense. But on a serious side, who are we really kidding? America is all about sex. Well, let me take that back. If you ask an American about sex, you will hear most people say they are saints, however, the reality is that America is all about sex. All you have to do is go look around you. It is so obvious. Look at all the porn, sexting, cheating, drunken sex, adult entertainment establishments and heck, just look at cheerleaders at something as mundane as a high school football game. No one goes to watch the “cheering”. I have never heard a person say … “Man, did you hear those cheerleaders!”, but I have heard more than one person say “Man, those cheerleaders were hot!” On all levels and underneath it all, it is about sex in some form or fashion. We only kid ourselves when we say it isn’t. It is like saying you aren’t an alcoholic but you still drink 2 six packs of beer a day.

    America is all about sex, but what do you expect from the most repressed country in the world. Repression breeds unhealthy attitudes and people act out any chance they can get. If we were a) realistic about what goes on in this nation and b) had a healthier attitude towards sex, we would have much fewer problems in this country. I assure you.
