Just out of curiosity, what was the point to pixelating the faces of the dancers? Were they 'victims' too?

How long are we going to fall for this stuff?

Provide inappropriate entertainment to customers who you know will enjoy it.

React to the expected outrage with crocodile regret and promises to do better.

I think the point of that pixellation was that this was a semi-private event, and they weren't hired by the photographers to be models, they were hired to work as dancers.

Kinda like the issues cam models (and strip club private booth models) were having before that with people recording one-on-one performances and distributing them widely. There should be royalties and consent involved for wider distribution.
