The 'Penis Seat' on Mexico City's Subway Will Make You Very, Very Uncomfortable

They're raising awareness of sexual assault by making everyone feel weird.

Women who take mass transpiration in Mexico City have it rough. According to recent research, two thirds have experienced some form of sexual harassment on a subway or bus in Mexico's sprawling capital. 

Now the local government wants make sure everyone else is uncomfortable, too. That's the only way to explain the installation of this so-called "penis seat." The seat resembles a dude's nude torso and penis and has a sign above it that says it's for "men only." The idea appears to be that when men sit on it, they experience a bit of the discomfort women feel when a sweaty scumbag grinds her leg during rush hour.

“It is annoying to travel this way, but not compared to the sexual violence women suffer in their daily commutes,” a sign below the seat reads. 

As the PSA below makes clear, it's not just those who sit on the seat who are uncomfortable. Anyone who's riding nearby and catches a glimpse of the perpetually hard dick and nips is sure to have an unpleasant ride home.
