Sure, some are objectified, but then again, women (two in particular) are behind basically the entire conspiracy of the second game, so they say they're objectified completely and not given their due is just false. So what if Triss did some playboy? She's hot, leave her alone.
I didn't say they were "objectified completely"
As I wrote, I think The Witcher handles sexism well much of the time - not by effacing it, but by acting it out as a component of the fiction - but there are moments when it's guilty of the sort of "shampoo commercial" male-gaziness you get in, I don't know, Highlander movies, for instance. It's just a bit cheesy, really. I'm not so much offended as bored.
