Two years before she became a teacher at a very snobbish private school in England, Sarah Green appeared in a TV commercial about the endurance and resilience of Scruffs work clothing. It was a highly suggestive advert that bordered on - perhaps even crossed over into - soft porn. (Ms. Green played the secretary in the work trailer who did the construction worker on the desk, with a Geiger counter monitoring the action.)

But it was still just a bleeping blipvert.

Ms. Green's students found the commercial on the web and once the word got out, she was suspended from her job as a teacher.

Of course, (so far as I can tell), no punitive actions have been taken against the men who appeared in the ad.
