I”ll have what she’s having

Both sides of the political aisle in Catalonia, Spain are not happy about a new get-out-the-vote video designed to lure young people to the polls.

“Voting is a pleasure” is the message in a televised video produced by the Young Socialists in Catalonia, in which a woman experiences an orgasm while voting. Catalonia held its regional elections this month.

Both Socialist and opposition politicians have attacked the campaign video.

In the film dismayed poll workers watch as the young woman gets increasingly worked up while preparing to cast her ballot for the Socialist Party.

A BBC News Europe story quoted several politicians as claiming that the video demeaned women. However, it also indicated that Joan Herrera, the leader of the Catalonia’s Green coalition, had a more realistic view towards the video: “It would be very difficult to reach orgasm voting for any of the candidates, myself included.”
