Another point I have missed out is - strippers - bear with me on this! Women go to see men taking their clothes off to have a laugh and get drunk. Men who go to see women take their clothes off are all pervs and should be strung up from the nearest lamp post. How many 'ladies nights' do you see advertised in your local rag?

I know men allow themselves to be 'dumbed down' with the whole end of the pier, lad's mag, man cave attitude, but who portrays women as strong, independent people and men as drooling, brain dead idiots? The media has a lot to answer for, but it is allowed to happen. When did it all of a sudden become right? Back to my original point, it's this forced sexism that winds me up.

Glad to see I have provoked some debate, apologies if I have caused some friction
I know a guy who does the rip-off fireman uniform thing every weekend. He certainly doesn't see it as demeaning and gets paid an obscene amount for each job. If someone would pay me that to take my kit off, I'd do it in a shot. Never going to happen though.

There are real double-standards in terms of perception between male and female strippers. If men watch women they are seedy and exploitative (is that a word?); if women watch men they are having a laugh and its all about having some girl-time.

Double standards period. Another one is adverts. For example those diet Coke ad's with the women drooling over some bloke taking his shirt off. If the gender roles were reversed - those ad's would be banned.

P.S. Exploitative is a word, yes.

Blokes are turned on by visual images far more than women, it's just how it is.

That's just nonsense I'm afraid. One of those myths we can't undo.

I didn't mean that the occupation is demeaning, just that they're viewed very differently when they're exactly the same. The double standards point is one that I was trying to raise in my earlier post.

I disagree with this. In my experience both men and women are turned on equally by the visual side.

By the way there isn't an underlying misogyny about my original, or subsequent posts, I am married and love and respect my wife more than anything.....just felt I needed to point that out.
