Universal Music is planning to release a very special “Liebe ist für Alle da” Deluxe-Edition, designed by Rammstein, that is set to appear as an extremely limited edition worldwide during the pre-Christmas period.
LIFAD-Deluxe-Cutlery in all it’s splendour will be available: Handcuffs, lubricant, six dildos and the Special Edition as the soundtrack to this. Everything is neatly packed in an aluminium case.
The album was added to the index of the Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) in Germany, due to the track “Ich tu dir weh” and a picture inside the album booklet displaying Richard Kruspe spanking a nude woman. This means only adults can purchase the album, additionally, it must not be displayed in stores where minors have access (see BPjM#Legal_consequences for details). As a consequence, the album was re-released in Germany on November 16 in an edited version without the censored track and picture. The band would still play the instrumental version song live in Germany until it was ultimately banned from live performances.
Despite the censorship, the video to “Ich tu dir weh” was released on December 21, 2009, on the adult website Visit-x, just like the video to “Pussy”, after advertisement on the band’s official German website. Any references have since been deleted, probably following German law prohibiting advertisement for media on the index. In Europe, a single was released on February 5, 2010, and in the U.K. on February 15, 2010.
