Below is the City of Toronto By-Law related to adult entertainment. If an event/business fits this definition then it is required by law to undergo a very onerous licensing process and compete for a very limited number of licenses. Not to mention be subject to several operating restrictions.
What do you think? Does lingerie football meet the definition?
See below (emphasis added in bold).

ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PARLOUR:
A. Any premises or part thereof in which is provided services appealing to or designed to appeal to erotic or sexual appetites or inclinations (does not say that the primary service is designed to appeal to sexual appetites, so, arguably, the fact that the "main purpose" of the LFL has been stated to be sport may in fact be an irrelevant argument)
B. In this definition:
(1) TO PROVIDE - When used in relation to services, includes to furnish, perform, solicit, or give such services in pursuance of a trade, business or occupation, and “providing” and “provision” have corresponding meanings.
(2) SERVICES - Includes activities, facilities, performances, exhibitions, viewing and encounters.
(3) SERVICES DESIGNED TO APPEAL TO EROTIC OR SEXUAL APPETITES OR INCLINATIONS - Includes:
(a) Services of which a principal feature or characteristic is the nudity or partial nudity of any person;(lingerie football? In the girls contracts that they cannot wear additional clothing under their uniform and the clause that says that they realize that incidentall nudity will occur and that they consent to it).
(b) Services in respect of which the word “nude”, “naked”, “topless”,“bottomless”, “sexy” or any other word or any other picture, symbol or representation having like meaning or implication is used in any advertisement; (again, the name lingerie football. Also the advertising program "Real Fantasy Football")
