You may be in urgent need of a shower after reading this story.

In a total reasonable and not at all creepy, weird and possibly illegal move, a Scottish nightclub called ‘The Shimmy’ decided to install two way mirrors in the women’s bathrooms. They are currently being investigated by Glasgow police and other city officials for the shocking breach of privacy.

Picture the scene. Fat, drunken, oily men guffawing smugly and toasting each other with overpriced champagne. Photos have apparently been obtained by the Scottish Sunday Express that show a selection of men posing in self congratulatory fashion in front of what is effectively a window. The private rooms that offer a commanding view of the women’s toilet were apparently available for rent, no doubt for perverted excesses in a very bizarre VIP section.

“I find it absolutely outrageous that a club can get away with this, it is a complete invasion of privacy of the unsuspecting girls,” said one club goer. “Nowhere is it made clear that this is the case so when visiting the bathroom for the first time, there are women bending over the sink, pouting into the mirror to redo their lipstick, adjusting themselves whilst unknowingly being watched by people on the other side.”

The Shimmy Club are insisting unconvincingly that the two way mirror was “created as a bit of fun, an interactive feature which we hoped would act as a talking point.”

They then proceeded to mount a quite staggering display of arrogance by suggesting that anyone complaining on their Facebook page was merely jealous as they had doubtless been turned away by their door staff. So basically, anyone offended by this two way mirror had desperately tried to get into their club but wasn’t considered attractive or wealthy enough. That is their response. Seriously.
