This thread, ironically, appears to be turning into a willy waving contest!

Walk-on girls will no longer accompany darts players at tournaments.
Will Formula one grid girls be next?

I've not been to a 'Motor Show' Press Day for a couple of decades - do they still have scantily-clad females draped on the bonnets?

Certain females are criticising their loss of employment opportunity.

We appear to be going through another period of puritanism via self-righteous grandstanding on Twitter

There will be nothing remotely fun left once this lot are finished, it's a race to the bottom where everyone is trying to be more offended than the next person to out virtue signal each other, and everyone will be silently obedient because these new guardians of our morals will not rest until they have hounded the unbelievers from their jobs or public life

“Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under the omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Can you still buy 'girly' magazines?
Fiesta, Mayfair, Penthouse, Escort, Men Only, Playboy, Club International, Titbits, Health and Efficiency? - or is it all on line only now?

My appetite was sated when we moved to Denmark and 'porn' was freely available (and not on the topshelf).
Since then I've never been (worked) in an environment where soft porn magazines were circulated (unlike my first employer).

I can report from the newsagents down here in Orstraya where I buy my geeky planespotter mags that said tit(les) still reside on the top shelf in plastic bags...

He has obviously forgotten about the last supper!

Were there any women at the penultimate supper ?

It's all kicking off in the world of darts now, the girls are complaining that their income will suffer.

From the BBC website:

Darts girls: More than 15,000 sign petition to reverse walk-on ban

Although some people have accused the sport of being stuck in the past, and say the role is demeaning.

However model Charlotte Wood who is one of the best known walk-on girls on the darts circuit has spoken out against the ban.

"Wow 10k signatures in 24 hours! A big thank you for everyone's support," she wrote on Twitter.

The 29-year-old said her "rights are being taken away" and darts accounts for 60% of her income.

Such visibility has to be a big boost to her career, even if she had to act like a tart to get the story
...and we're back to Hollywood.....

Apparently, LBC radio received quite a few calls from some women that had been at the event saying they didnít know what the reporter was talking about. They hadnít seen or received unwelcome attention.
Or they took it in their stride and didn't think it was worthy of being classed as harassment!

Will Formula one grid girls be next?
Been tried on a number of occasions both on F1 cars and Moto GP, not to mention car shows, bike shows, boat shows, and everywhere else scantily glad females are used to entice male customers to pay attention to what they are advertising.

Nothing wrong with undercover journalism, IMHO.

Hands up dresses pretty clearly crosses the line, IMHO. Most "gents" understand "look but don't touch" as the standard operating procedure.

Fixed it for ya!
