28. Mkay.
Thanks for the clarification--I wasn't being snarky; I really couldn't tell quite where you stood on the matter.

As for that contract--keep in mind that it's signed when the women are stumbling drunk, and under considerable pressure to do so. If that doesn't make you feel, well, ICKY when you think about it--at least as icky as thinking about Hef in his PJs and robe--it should. It's not too far removed from someone (not YOU, Human Torch) making apologetic comments about a rapist because his victim was inebriated. Coercion is still coercion, even if (and, really, especially when) the person on the receiving end has their judgment compromised by alcohol, pot, coke or whatever the drug of choice happens to be. The GGW formula is revolting, and I'm delighted to see Francis getting a little (richly deserved) bad publicity for a change, instead of just the "gee, those girls sure are slutty."
