Can’t get no satisfaction?  Women in the German town of Luchow are upset with design of the urinals in a men’s restroom at a Rolling Stones museum.  The urinals emulate the band’s famous red-lips logo.  But, to some, the lips look too feminine.  And that’s what has stirred the emotions.

According to Spiegel Online, Rolling Stones memorabilia collector, Ulli Schroder, opened the museum last October.  Regarding the controversy, Spiegel Online reported that Schroder was “defiant and unrepentant.”  He reportedly commented:  “That’s not a man’s mouth or a woman’s mouth, that’s art. They were damned expensive and they’re staying where they are and that’s final.”

The Stones-inspired urinals were designed by female Dutch artist, Meike van Schijndel.
