SheFinds Asks: Are Religious B&B Products Totally Tasteless or Just Tacky?

Awhile back, we asked you if racy cosmetics names got you all hot and bothered —or totally turned you off. Half of you said you're more likely to be attracted to products with sexy monikers, and half said you like to keep things PG, thank you very much.

Now cosmetics with religion-centric themes are under fire, as Singapore has banned sales of the Looking Good for Jesus line of bath and body products. Beauty loot with names like "Get Tight With Christ" lotion and packaging that boasts slogans like "Get His Attention" and "Redeem Your Reputation…And More!" have Catholics crying blasphemy, so products have been yanked from Singaporean shelves indefinitely. Representatives trying to get the products pulled cited disrespectful marketing, inappropriate sexual innuendo and trivialization of Christianity as tics in the line's minus column. Check out our review of the product when it first launched.

3D, the company that markets the line, has a stable of kitschy bath and body booty. No word on how Singapore feels about their Virgin/Slut soap duo ($8), Wash Away Your Sins towelettes ($6), Total Bitch body wash ($12) or Dirty Girl One Night Stand gift kit ($6), which includes everything a gal could need for a quickie—plus a tiny journal for keeping track of all those illicit affairs.

A good chunk of 3D's line falls into the good old "tasteless at best" category, but let's be honest: sometimes those tacky, overdesigned tchotchkes with a purpose make the best gifts. So what do you think? Is Singapore right to put the smackdown on products that don't live up to a certain moral code, or are they being too touchy?
