A common EstablishingCharacterMoment. A man walks into a room, arms intertwined with those of two conventionally attractive ladies, displaying them as trophies to show what a {{Badass}} stud he is. Conversely, the ladies may get on his arms mid-scene just to imply that everything's goin' pimpin'. Very commonly, the women [[NominalImportance won't have names]] (or, if the trope is PlayedForLaughs, the guy simply can't remember their names and refers to them with [[AccidentalMisnaming a wide range of incorrect names]]), nor will they say anything: they're just there to act as props for the male character. If they do get to speak, it'll probably only be to imply that they’re going to have sex with the man later. It is he who decides what they’re going to do and where they're going to go, while the ladies just follow around and agree with everything the stud says. After all, [[MenActWomenAre men are defined by their actions and women by their passiveness]]. "A lady on each leg" is a variant of this trope that takes place when the man is sitting down, with the women at his feet. Or perhaps even one sitting on each knee.

** Also on the holodeck in "Alter Ego", the Doctor is shown being kissed by two Polynesian beauties. It's likely not a coincidence that Robert Picardo (who plays the Doctor) directed this episode.

* One of the villainous lycanthropes in ''[[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Fool Moon]]'' notes this trope nearly by name, referring to Harry. Unfortunately for Harry, Susan and Murphy were only on his arms because he was so injured he needed their help.
