A college has been rapped for sexism after holding a lap-dancing style beauty contest where female students gyrated in stockings and suspenders.
Girls from Warsaw's Agricultural University in Warsaw stripped down to revealing lingerie to bump and grind on a catwalk over a male student sitting in a chair.
Then the best contestants are invited to turn up on stage scantily-clad to gyrate and fawn over a male student sitting on a chair.
Outraged parents and members of the public flooded the university with complaints when local media reported on the event.
They are demanding it be cancelled and one said: "I sent my daughter to university, not a strip club."
But a spokesman for the students’ union which organised the event wrote on the university’s website: "Candidates in the pictures and the contest are presented in clearly sexual positions and contexts with their full permission. Nobody was forced to do anything against their will.
"We do accept that students were encouraged to dress in their underwear but that was part of an artistic dance choreography and there were no harmful, sexist patterns that would humiliate any of the women involved."
