Where Have All the E3 Babes Gone ?
For those of you into Gaming or in the Gaming Industry and have attended E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) in the past, this bit of news may come as bit of a downer for afficianados of the E3 babes at the booths. E3 draws tens of thousands of professionals to experience the future of interactive entertainment and apparently scantily clad women are not going to a part of the E3 future. A new rule has been added to the E3 exhibitor handbook and includes the following, which indicates that booth models wearing risqué outfits will soon be a thing of E3 history.
"Material, including live models, conduct that is sexually explicit and/or sexually provocative, including but not limited to nudity, partial nudity and bathing suit bottoms, are prohibited on the Show floor, all common areas, and at any access points to the Show. ESA, in its sole discretion, will determine whether material is acceptable," reads the new rule.
If the E3 tribunal decides that these rules have been broken then they will slap a $5,000 fine on the offender(s), payable immediately. Any rule breakers will be required to comply with the dress code before being allowed to return to the show floor. For the purpose of illustration, the E3 babe pictured (Lisa Gleave) would most likely generate a $5,000 fine. In my opinion, E3 is not for kids, period. I see no reason to child-proof the event. This is just another example of people over-thinking morality in an attempt to child-proof the World.
FYI: E3 2006 will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from May 10 – 12. Conferences are held May 9 – 11 and the show floor is open May 10 – 12.
