‘R-rated’ tea towel sold at Myer causes a stir online

A collection of tea towels for sale at Myer featuring Australian animals appearing to have intercourse has caused a sensation online.

Facebook users in a private group couldn’t contain their laughter when a member posted an image of the La La Land Wild Fur You Australiana tea towel that she spotted for $19.95 in her local store.

“Anyone else seen these at Myer?” she asked the group, along with an image of the tea towel featuring animals paired up and “reproducing”.

The tea towel features native Australian wildlife such as emus, wombats, kangaroos and koalas in pairs.

Members of the group saw the funny side of the cheeky tea towel, which is featured on Myer’s website with the description “washing up your dishes just got a whole lot more steamy!”

“That is one way to encourage native fauna to reproduce,” one person responded to the woman’s Facebook post.

“After the recent fires and impact on our wildlife, nothing better than our Aussie animals getting their freak on,” another user wrote.

Several people jumped onboard, saying they would be the perfect gift for overseas friends.

“Overseas Christmas presents sorted! Thank you, finding it so hard to find unique gifts to post from Australia,” oner person commented.

Other members became excited when another pointed out the range also featured tote bags, mugs, pencil cases and an exotic African animals edition.

“Rock this daring tote bag and cause a scene,” Myer advertised for the tea towel featuring elephants, lions and zebras mating.

“They had this bag a couple of years ago and it sold out fast,” one person said online.

“I don’t know if i should laugh, cry or be shocked,” another user wrote.

The artist responsible for the colourful designs, Lilly Perrott, is an in house designer for the brand La La Land and described her style as “creating playful scenes and concepts reflecting pop culture today”.

Yahoo News Australia contacted Myer for comment.
