Dash of Chivalry offers ‘gentlemen’ rather than strippers for parties.

Ms Malcolm (23) acted on the idea after being disappointed with an experience attempting to book a topless driver for a wine tour hen’s party.

‘My friends aren’t in to strippers and there’s no other alternative,’ she said.

‘There’s nothing wrong with a stripper, they just don’t suit everyone.’

The five men on offer can be put to work at an event as a driver, waiter, barman or guitarist, capitalising on their own unique talents.

Leigh White (32), a personal trainer from Trigg, and Carramar law student Dylan Hoyne (19), were among 30 men that Ms Malcolm interviewed for the positions.

‘I liked the way the position was advertised, it was about being a gentleman rather than a stripper,’ Mr White said.

‘I was asked ‘What is a gentleman’ and ‘What is their role in society’.

‘Chivalry still has a place in our society.’

Ms Malcolm, who is studying Certificate 4 in Youth Services, launched the online business in December, and plans to expand to include women and offer various packages.
