Sad to think this still goes on in the 21 century and that there is no reports of men rejecting to this behavior in the office. I would like to think that at the very least the Company banned video / cameras at the stunt but I know this is wishful thinking!!!

I'm shocked by the comments on this. Just because she was paid to do it doesn't mean she wanted to. Many people in a position of power have used that power to manipulate people into doing something they do not want to and I imagine in many circumstances prey of those that aren't able to stand up for themselves to say no. She may have felt pressured to do so or would lose her job for example. We don't know all of the facts, so I feel it is very unfair to say she is to entirely blame. Even if she was complicit and agreed, she should never have been asked in the first place, its a workplace! And from the limited information we have, did not give her consent to be filmed.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this - but one thing I do know is that it is NOT the sort of place I would want to work. Before you ask, I am male, and consider myself pretty broad minded, but this is beyond belief. It's a workplace, not the beach.
I don't understand the response amongst some comments here along the lines of "she was paid, so it's ok" - that fact that you are paid to do something doesn't make it right.

She made a conscious decision to accept the payment and wholeheartedly engaged with the activity. Other than it being in very poor taste and not in keeping with workplace values, I really don't see the issue here. It certainly isn't an example of sexual harassment or a boss bullying an employee, as far as I can tell. Mountain out of a mole-hill.
