Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Where does the real problem lie?

I saw this story a while ago, but it has lingered in my mind after initially deciding not to bother mentioning it.

Then I saw the Comments Section after it (which you probably know I prefer to refer to as the Moron’s Section), and it changed my mind.

Being in Glasgow, I have to confess to having no idea, or experience, of this business, which I probably wouldn’t touch, but only because it’s a private venture with no accountability, and appears to want lots of ID and personal data.

But I read through more of the ‘comments’ than I really wanted to, and began to wonder what’s wrong with the British (or those that are motivated to spout their bile in comment sections. Has our climate, and ‘Nudge, nudge, wink, wink’ mentality made it almost impossible for us to regard a lack of clothes as meaning only one thing?

I know quite a few people from Continental Europe, and as a cold Scot in a Cold Scotland, I do get surprised with the ease at which they shed their clothes. I’ve become used to it (so this Edinburgh thing didn’t really catch my eye at first, until I saw the comments), and I suspect our Continental cousins would think it a little silly.

In light of that, I think I’d be more worried about being alone with most of the commenters who expressed their ‘shock and horror’ at this Edinburgh novelty business, than with anyone from the business.

As for the business?

Well, I did use the word ‘novelty’ for a reason.

If the initial interest in its novelty aspect wears off, it will disappear since it won’t be sustainable, and all ‘shocked and horrified’ people can trawl the news for something else to comment on.

Otherwise, it will be interesting to revisit the venture in a few years, and see if those expansion plans for Glasgow (seriously?) and Fife have materialised.

The idea is hardly new, but I don’t know if it’s been tried in our chilly and poor land. Hasn’t she read the news, most of Scotland is reportedly queuing up at food banks, and the kids are living in poverty. Unless… the media and politicians are making it all up.

A new naked cleaning business has launched in Edinburgh offering services in the buff for up to £80 an hour.

Glimmer strips back the hassle of household chores by supplying cleaners to carry out tasks such as ironing and hoovering while completely naked.

The company, set up by 25-year-old beautician Victoria Murphy, also has a lingerie and topless option, and has a number of male and female cleaners on its books of all age, shapes and sizes.

Clients are not allowed to touch the cleaners, take pictures or videos or have anybody else in the house for the service, with the price depending on how many clothes the employee has on. The nude cleaning service will set the client back £80 per hour. A cheaper alternative is for the cleaner to be wearing lingerie (£55) or be topless (£65).

Victoria told the Evening News: “There is a certain element of this business that is sexual. But there is a fine line of being in the adult industry and not. There is no sex involved. Glimmer is primarily a cleaning service with all our employees having past experience.”

Clients have to fill out a form and give photo ID before arranging a date and time for a cleaner to attend to their needs. Terms and conditions also need to be accepted ahead of their visit with the cleaner having the option to leave if they are made to feel uncomfortable.

After a positive start in the Capital, Victoria, of Murrayfield, is hoping to expand the business throughout Scotland.

She added: “I’m enjoying establishing Glimmer in Edinburgh and the Lothians but I see huge potential in this and I’m looking to push into Glasgow and Fife in the near future.”
