British Regulator Bans Pamela Anderson Ad For Being 'Sexist and Degrading to Women'

A raunchy TV ad featuring ex-Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has been banned for being sexist and degrading to women.

The ad, for web hosting service CrazyDomains.co.uk, featured the Barb Wire star in a boardroom full of men.

While addressing the board Anderson and her assistant, Vanessa, show a lot of cleavage and one of the men fantasises about the pair dancing in bikinis while covered in cream.

Dreamscape Networks, the parent company of Crazy Domains, said the dream sequence was not "gratuitous or pornographic".

    No wonder they had a popular theatrical play that ran for years called, "No Sex Please, We're British!" An island of prudes.
