Sounds like a good job for Hilary Benn, when he's kicked out at the GE.

As most people who run these clubs are pretty thick, they'll not know whether it's a bloke or a gal turning up on a wet Monday morning to see what went on last night, and watch the hoovering and mopping up...

I love the way they call it the sex 'industry'. Industry ??? That's why they need such professionals.

I thought 'industry' involved heat, sweat, blood, tears ... and the smell of burning rubber.

Do night time sexual consumers enjoy the full panoply of consumer rights?

BTW - I don't know about you, Idle - but that woman in the photo does absolutely nothing for me.

Don't apologise's a bloke!

I work in a lap dance bar, at weekends (I'm a civil servant during the week) and I'd like to contribute some pithy, though not politically correct, observations to the study the successful candidate will embark on, though I suspect my 'evidence' would be rejected as 'tainted'.

Thats a man?.....I'm confused and need to get out more or stay in more.

Thud: Okay - was a bloke until quite recently.

I think he's having the work done in installments. The hands are always the giveaway.

I am so glad it's not just me...I was sure that's a picture of a man...
