Prudes finger naked E3 Expo strumpets

Booth babes must cover up - or else

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The Entertainment Software Association has effectively ruined the best chance that the average gamer will ever get of seeing a authentic expanse of female flesh by ordering "booth babes" at the E3 Expo in LA to put it away - or face the consequences.

ESA President Douglas Lowenstein explained earlier this week: "Last year there were a lot of complaints about how the models were beyond, in many cases, what was decent." Accordingly, gone are "nudity, partial nudity, bikini bottoms or any sexually explicit or provocative conduct", according to the ESA guidlines.

And the aforementioned consequences are indeed dire: a verbal warning for a first flash of skin and then a $5,000 fine if the perpetrator continues to flaunt herself like a two-bit hussy, Reuters reports.

The flesh police have already moved to clamp down on excessively hot dermatological action: booth babe Pauline K told Reuters that one strumpet had already got a finger-wagging for too much cleavage. Ms K herself escaped censure, although she was wearing "a white shredded tank top with an exposed midriff, short mini skirt and knee-high leggings as she handed out fliers for a company that makes custom face plates for Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 game machine". Phwooooar! ®
