Yes when I was younger, had my own business, and I travelled to the North west of WA selling. At first I thought, oooh how nice are these places, and then after several trips I realised there was a lack of women.
At that stage these remote, hot towns were mainly men and there were no female FIFO workers, so I realised I was just a novelty. I could have had two heads and they still would have whistled as they probably hadnt seen a new female in many weeks.
Think it has only happened a few times to me in the city.
I am not good at whistling of any sort,but I used to receive a lot of wolf whistles right up into my early 40s which always used to make me smile,and actually give me a lift!! I do feel it was a great compliment when I received them!!
I can't wolf whistle. I've never wanted to wolf whistle at someone walking by but I would like to be able to do it at festivals and other outdoor concerts. It's a great disappointment to me that I just can't get the hang of it!
And yes, as a teenager and young adult I got whistled at a lot. I rarely paid any attention to it.
Yes I used to get them when I was younger..it always made me feel uncomfortable. In those days it was an accepted norm, now however..thankgoodness it is no longer allowed by Law I don't think. Women have come a long way in that regard, sadly not in some other regards...ie equal pay and...domestic violence is in epic proportions in Australia apparently
Used to get them a fair bit when I was young, but then most young chicks in the 60s would get them! Nowadays I sometimes get a car horn tooted at me when I am walking in my sports gear. Mind you they don't see me close up to see I'm older than they think!
Nothing like a wolf whistle to make you feel good, all that effort to dress nicely and apply makeup was worth it! They are harmless and never meant to hurt anyone. These days I would like to give a whistle to some of the hot blokes I see but I give them a cheeky grin instead. A bit of flirting never hurt anyone and good for self esteem, that is how I see it....
