Yep, otherwise if the law were as it was 50 years ago, most men in the media (and women?) would be in jail!

The fact is that women were expected to sleep their way to the top in showbiz. Some were willing (although I would assume, not happy) to do so, and some weren't willing.
Safe to assume that plenty of talented women had promising careers ruined due to being unwilling, so it was as wrong then as it is now.
The difference is, its becoming more difficult for predatory men to get away with it now, thankfully.

It is fact that in earlier, Victorian / Edwardian times, actresses were presumed to have loose morals and be no more than "tarts" or prostitutes of a type who could be wealthy men's play things, as infamously in the case of the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII with various actresses in  the form of Lillie Langtry, Sarah Bernhardt, Nellie Clifden, Carolina “La Belle” Otero, and Hortense Catherine Schneider, La Snédèr, to name those who are known to have been his mistresses in that profession.  Indeed, my mother always stated that many actresses were not very reputable woman, and my Grandmother said worse! ;D ;D ;D ;)

So that must be remembered to be the context in which actresses were still considered to be during much of the 20th Century :(

I see that Steven Seagal is the latest to be dragged into this mire. I only hope he was better at sex than he is at acting. ;D
Though Under Siege wasn,t too bad.

It all boils down to a couple of things , sex or cash  if you want something that badly, personally I don't think anything will change been like it for years & always will be not right but that's life .

No, Albs, it doesn’t work that way. He puts it in someone else.

We should all know where this is heading and we are all being groomed for the solution. All women to wear burkas and strict male/female segregation in public. :( :( :( Just not sure how the Trans Liberation Army will insist how the gender-fluid are treated? :o :o :o

Music and entertainment of any description can be sexually arousing and must be banned along with alcohol as it lets down our guard. 2020 onwards Taliban Britain is going to be a real swell fun place to live. :( :( :(
