  1. These things happen all the time, I've been groped many times as well, in a bus, while walking in the evening, in a crowded street, in a train…… . It's extremely humiliating for a woman to go through this you feel shocked and jolted to the core of your being. Perversion at its worst!

  2. Oooooh. …booohooo …..poor me…I’m a victim etc etc. You only have to read the bulk of the comments below to know that there are two sides to this issue. Some guy patted you on the arse, or made a suggestive comment ??? Oh dear me…..you poor victim ! the end of the world for you I’m sure……… at least until the compensation is paid.My lovely wife DIED a few months ago and my life pretty much ended the same day. This woman needs to get a grip of reality and perspective. I am sickened by how we are becoming a country drowning in the victim culture. Someone touched your arse, or made a remark, or looked at you in a funny way……..so what ??? That’s nothing compared to some people’s pain !!!!!………….Just grow a backbone and tell him to fuck off……….instead of whining.

  3. Usually if your rich, the women stay around to let you do stuff – a lot of them enjoy it because of the rush i guess ( i am a guy who has attended a few upscale clubs and parties thanks to a few friends) of being around rich powerful men. the others just let the guys have a good night while they cha ching their way to a nice tip. It is the same reason why many women enjoy stripping online for no pay. It is their kink to see guys enjoy their physique.

    the presidents club was just similar to a hostess bar. This Ft journalist was looking for a story, so when she couldnt film anything bad happening, she jumped on the metoo bandwagon.

  4. Have you ever been accosted in the street by a Hen party? You get groped, they try to kiss you, if this were a gang of men doing this it would be a sexual assault but because it's women it's just 'a bit of fun'. Just watch an episode of the 'Loose Women' fawning over some gonk from Boyzone and imagine it was a panel of men and a woman guest. This woman is trying to make a career by exposing this and the culture of ultra offence continues. I bet she flirted her way through the room hoping someone would grope her so she could make a story of it. The people who work in media aren't real people they are sensationalists looking for controversy like a truffle hunting swamp donkey!

  5. I 've been a hostess at many events. Not just male events. They grope you everywhere but if you make clear you don't want that kind of familiarity, they say sorry. They just try their luck. And most men never even try, only a few do, usually after a few too many drinks. Stop making a mountain out of a mole's heap.

  6. This happens everywhere though? Ive been groped in nightclubs, ive been groped at work (actor at a halloween scare attraction). Theres been men on busses and trams who have tried to catcall me or but their hand on my knee. Most recently i visited an attraction where we were required to take a photo with the mascot. He put is hand around my waist and started feeling his fingers up and down my hips.

    It happens everywhere. Its disgusting. And its gotten to a point now where im just used to it. And i think most people are. Men dont realise theyre overstepping a line and women are so used to it theyve forgotten where the line is.

    Its vile and disgusting. But where does it stop?
