More than 250 people bent over backwards to apply for a starring role as a porn star before the job ad was pulled by prudish e-recruitment outfit, reed.co.uk.

Reed.co.uk - more known for finding more sober positions for secretaries and accountants - ran the saucy £45,000-a-year job on its "free ads" section on its Web site.

Even though Reed.co.uk believed the vacancy was genuine, the outfit decided to remove the ad yesterday because executives "didn't feel it was appropriate".

However, in the 36 hours the ad was up some 50,000 people viewed the position requiring "experimental and fun-loving people...for some adult movie productions".

The outfit said it had received over 250 applications for the job mainly from Business Analysts, Investment Bankers and consultants in top city firms.

Paul Rapacioli, head of reed.co.uk said: "While the huge number of visitors to this Web page demonstrates the power of the Internet, this is clearly an inappropriate job to be advertising on our site.

"However, I'm delighted to say that although our one adult model vacancy has been removed, we still have over 43,000 jobs in accountancy, IT and other professional sectors.

"This particular posting has alerted us to the need to block jobs containing sexual overtones, something which we are already putting in place," he said.

The ad read:

Adult Models
MODELS WANTED
Salary: Up to £45000 per annum
3 days per week Adult Models, London, London & M25

Description
Experimental and fun-loving people wanted for some adult movie productions. Work is available at all levels. A sense of fun is a pre-requisite, as well as an enquiring sexual mind. Willing to try out new ideas with minimal fuss. In return, top rates of pay will be given depending on level of performance and interest. This is adult movie making at its best!

In the interests of decency and good taste El Reg refuses to make the very obvious gag that with more that with more than 43,000 jobs available, reed.co.uk has more positions than the Kama Sutra. ®
