"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.
