New raunchy porn-filled advert highlights gender pay gap
What's the best way to highlight the gender pay gap? That's right, hire an ex-porn star to babble on for sixty seconds while her blurry colleagues get 'busy' in the background.

What's the best way to highlight the gender pay gap? That's right, hire an ex-porn star to babble on for sixty seconds while her blurry colleagues get 'busy' in the background.

A new Belgian television advert is celebrating Equal Pay Day with some porn. Belgium has a 22 per cent pay gap and apparently the only way to close it is by becoming a porn 'actress'.

The ad shows Sasha Grey walking around the set of a porn shoot spouting gems of wisdom like: "When I turned 18 I left high school and decided that I wanted to pursue different career opportunities".

We only get a moment to daydream about what those could have been before she unceremoniously tells us the different porn 'characters' she's played: "I worked as a secretary, as a teacher, I worked as a waitress - and as a nurse I actually made more than the doctors."

Any other nuggets Sasha? Oh yes: "I like really dirty things. I've been hung upside down and tied up. I've had a 12 inch dildo stuck in my a** - with my mouth gagged. I'm proud of this, it's something I chose to do."

The whole ad is a bit of a mess. There's no clear message and it's confusing as hell. But, there are fuzzy images of porn throughout.
