    I'm not and I don't, just questioning the assumptions of others.

    Maybe we've got this all wrong, and these "Fembots" are the products? I've managed after years of trying to get a MAME cabinet passed the wife, a sex robot will take forever. Or maybe not actually....

    If someone would pay me to get my cock out in public I certainly wouldn't be sitting at this desk now.

    No, you'd be fired.

    All I'm saying is that it's sad that product needs to be sold to us on the basis that a model (male or female) otherwise unrelated to said product is attractive.

    Unless they're selling body paint, in which case well done.

    Go to the nearest art school or place where they tech Croquis in the evenings. Apply as nude model. Post pictures here or forever remain a liar.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    The well paid part was aimed more at the photoshoot, glamour model lot tbh. I have no idea what booth babes get and am not assuming its great money. It may not be. But it is money at the end of the day and if its paying the bills that's the bottom line.

    As I say no one is stopping them getting a 'normal' job in retail or whatever, but if theyre blessed with the looks to do that instead of Primark then good on 'em. The choice is theirs though ultimately.

    I think this place is restricted, Wang, so don't tell them you're Jewish, okay?

    The issue isn't with them, it's with the companies that choose to use women in this way to promote their products.

    I'm setting up a caravan full of whores with an Xbox in the corner outside next year's Eurogamer Expo, that rauper bloke will be laughing on the other side of his expensive face.

    Saw a girl I vaguely remembered from school doing 'booth babing' for some shit home security thing company at this when I went last year. 8.50 p/h she was on but said it's low compared to well known companies with zero hour contracts, only a week's work (company only exhibits at that particular show) so for the year rest of the time she works at Argos.

    fwiw, she knew absolutely ziltch about the products

    Argos have booth babes? They're going seriously up-market.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 15:18:16
    Sex sells. The models choose to do it and are getting paid for it. Don't see the issue, I personally think it is sad but if it helps sell the product then you can't blame the business for hiring the girls.

    The human race is obsessed with tits. If there's a pair of tits out in the open people are drawn to them "Is that.... is that a pair of tits? I.... I must get closer." Of course advertisers are going to use them.

    Did it turn out to be a pair of tits in the end?

    It was actually a shoe.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 15:34:21
    There is an obsession with them I agree.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 15:35:35
    I too concur with this thought.

    Would you get them out for a fee Pepsipop? I've got half a pack of Polos with your name on them.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 15:44:37
    Depends on the situation. Not like that picture of the girls in the exhibition.

    Say for instance, if neilka was approaching climax and he needed something to aim at?

    Sounds like there's a possibility then.
    I'm happy to chip in some polos too.

    Not as nice as I used to be

  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 15:52:39
    No, I was thinking something to do with art.
    Nothing to do with expos or public displays etc. I wouldn't do the latter for loads of money although polos are more tempting.

    2 packs of Polos.
    And a pack of Hubba Bubba - flavour of your choice.

    I wonder what some Trebor gets...

    Serious question Pepsi. These women are quite literally being treated as objects and you're fine with that?

    Yeah sex sells, that's not really a justification in itself but more of an observation. The point is that as a society we should be striving to do better than flaunting some tits in a cynical attempt entice some sweaty journos to have a look at a product in between glances at said tits.

    Yeah don't worry about that revan11, it'll be totally justified artistically. Postmodern and ironically self aware and a damning commentary on dispisable consumerism and shit.

    Plus neilka will be 'pleased'.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 16:17:17
    100% agree. I'm not okay with it but these girls choose to degrade themselves. At the end of the day boys with be boys and will enjoy viewing semi naked women.
    The boys are the target audience so they use anything that helps.

    Look Revan lets get down to brass tacs here, can neilka shit on your chest for 50 quid. He's been trying to work up the courage to ask you for weeks now.


    There neilka, its done. I'm fucking sick of it.
