California Man Sues Playboy Over Gender Discrimination . . . Against Men

Steve Frye is a man who was shocked, shocked when he went to a party at the Playboy Mansion called the “Leather Meets Lace” that there was naked sexual discrimination . . . against men. Frye was outraged that men were required to pay for admission while “gorgeous ladies” could enter for free. He is now suing on behalf of all aggrieved men.

Frye complains that he had to pay $625 and some men paid $1000 only to find women walking in free. Frye says that such a practice violates California’s Gender Tax Repeal Act of 1995. The Act was passed in 1995 and states that “no business establishment of any kind whatsoever may discriminate, with respect to the price charged for services of similar or like kind, against a person because of the person’s gender.”

We have seen previous lawsuits (here) against Ladies Nights and similar promotions. A previous lawsuit by a lawyer against the discrimination inherent in such events was thrown out.

Moreover, I am not sure those men paying $1000 to get in would like to see fewer gorgeous women as opposed to full-ticket women. I would think that, if anyone has a grievance, it would be those women told to go buy a ticket.
