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.

Not to be confused with LoverTugOfWar, where two women are physically fighting over a man. On the contrary, the ladies of ALadyOnEachArm are passive to the point where they accept the fact that the man has other women for him as well.

* ''TheBradyBunch'': In his autobiography "Growing Up Brady," Barry Williams recalls filming of the episode "Mail Order Hero," the Season 5 episode guest-starring New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath, and writing that he pictured the trope being enforced as he came onto the set (i.e., several women on his arms, with dozens of other young women following behind). Averted, however, as Namath – although he was a bachelor at the time – was in extreme pain and was accompanied by only a small entourage that included his agent.
