Why Did Mexico City Metro Install A ‘Penis Seat’?

It’s a regular busy day on the metro. All of a sudden, you feel something pressing up against you. You turn around to see someone rubbing their junk against you, usually accompanied by a sleazy grin.

Commuters riding the Mexico City Metro were in for a nasty surprise when they spotted a seat, fitted with an installation that mimicked a man’s torso and semi-erect penis.

“It's uncomfortable to sit here but it doesn't compare with the sexual violence that women suffer in their everyday lives. 9 out of 10 women in Mexico City have been victims of some form of sexual violence,” a message by the seat reads, Harper Bazaar reported.
