  • The Samsi Japanese restaurant in Manchester is charging £75 to eat food placed on the bodies of two nude women.

    Angel Tan, 22, and Kit-Ying Ross, 25, will act as human tables at the first of the "nyataimori" nights on Friday.

    The word translates as "adorned body of a woman". The women will spend the night naked and lying face up.

    Dishes will be arranged over them, including lobster, ginger yakitori chicken, smoked salmon sushi and garlic udon noodles.

    Kit-Ying told The Sun : "I'm really looking forward to taking part in such a cultural experience as long as the guests behave themselves."

    Diners will tuck in with chopsticks. Etiquette dictates they must not touch the naked flesh.

    Samantha GoreLyons, boss of the Samsi restaurant, told the paper: "The celebration of food and the female form is the latest trend sweeping Tokyo. We are swapping the angular tabletop for the sensuous curves of the female body.

    "Exquisite food and female beauty combine two essential ingredients that make up the Japanese culture."

    Kit-Ying, from Alderley Edge, Cheshire, added: "I'm glad they're only serving cold food on me."

    I wonder if this will catch on during the soft economy?
