Nuts event cancelled
Posted by charliegrrl on March 7, 2007
Nuts were planning to hold a live porn shoot event Babes on the Bed, at De Montfort University.
It has now been cancelled due to pressure from EM Fems, NW Fems and Object!
This is how it happened…
Jen from Em Fems contacted the University about the event, and a Women’s Studies Professor, urging them to cancel it. Linda emailed India Knight from the Times about the event, who thought it was so ‘grotesque’ that she took the story to the news desk, and they expressed interest on reporting on the event. Linda also complained to the Vice Chancellor, and after having The Times ringing them up, they were taking the event very seriously! The Women Studies Professor by this time had arranged an internal meeting and by the end of the day, the event had been cancelled.
Just goes to show that a few people can make a difference.
Thanks to all of you involved.
Here is a preview of the Babes on the Bed tour. (Apologies for the image here for those who don’t want to watch it)
It involves Lucy Pinder, a Nuts model, posing in lingerie on a bed. However, the preview is done in a studio…what would have been more realistic, is to have a preview in front of a huge audience of drunken men shouting- ‘get your tits out!’
Lucy will be making star appearances at the events, coaching the women along when they are posing on the bed.
Michelle from EM Fems researched into the other tour dates, to see if the events were being held on student nights in clubs…
And suprise suprise, yes some of them are
Nuts will be holding the Babes on the Bed tour at The City club in Edinburgh and the Fubar in Stirling, both on student nights. Also, the Nuts event in Southend at Mayhem, will be held on a night where women can drink free until 11pm. Just to make sure there are enough drunk women to participate.
Also, three of the tourdates are taking place at Wildcats, which is a chain of lapdancing clubs. As Michelle rightly comments… are these events being put on as some sort of foundation course for becoming a lapdancer?
