There, guys could partake in any number of sexual acts with the dancers, including "the front door, the back door and the upstairs," LaTorre said.

Ah amusing. As much as I don't think prostitution should be illegaland the cops should just leave everyone alone - that comment from the police was brilliant.

"the front door, the back door and the upstairs"

You'd think after a $12 million investigation, over a 10 year time period, they could come up with better terms. Why some of the officials watched these girls grow up from teenagers.

And you know, if they weren't paying taxes, they must be Republicans.

LaTorre said the ongoing investigation into prostitution at the Penthouse Club is one of several investigations that State Police are conducting into area strip clubs. Other raids are slated soon.

Why would they print that?

These must be the worst police ever.

The house was well-aware of the illegal activity because it received $100 from every skybox visit and $150 from every champagne-room visit the dancers made, police said.

Um, the house gets a cut of all dances. Saying that they got a cut of the dances is NOT proof that they were "well-aware" [sic] of the illegal "activity" [sic].

They've already got arrest warrants being drawn up. As soon as they stop the circle-jerk celebration from this bust they'll get right on it - plus they hope it will have a deterrent effect.

Oh, subby, strippers aren't employees. They are independent contractors that are renting stage time and space in the champagne room from the club.

At the Penthouse Club, on Castor Avenue near Delaware, men would pay $300 for 30 minutes in the champagne room or $250 for a skybox, police said. There, guys could partake in any number of sexual acts with the dancers, including "the front door, the back door and the upstairs," LaTorre said.

Hey, you know, that's a pretty good deal.

I don't understand how strip clubs and brothels stay in business. With the vast quantity of attractive and legal women giving it away for nothing you would think that they wouldn't have any customers.

The prices shown are just to get access to the rooms you still had to negotiate the activities fee.

Selling is legal. Farking is legal. Why isn't selling farking legal? Why should it be illegal to sell something that's perfectly legal to give away? I can't follow the logic on that at all.

Strip clubs put video cameras in the back rooms and monitor what's going on in there. When when the house charges the dancer $150 to use the room and doesn't stop sexual activity, it's pretty clear what's going on.

You are partially correct. Those monitors are rarely viewed unless there is a known problem.

Yeah one of my old friends would pay around $100 a night to perform. On a good night, she would pull in around $1500 for five or six hours of work.

\She no kidding put herself through grad school and got a PHD
\\She dated/married my roommate back then
\\\Never saw her sans clothes

I can guarantee you that if she pulled in $1,500 that she paid more to the club than $100.

Another way of looking at it is that if the club had on-site contractors that were selling drugs and giving a 50% cut to the house, no one would question that the house was well aware of the situation. Their only possible defense is that they were titanically stupid, but that wouldn't protect them in court.

Grables'Daughter is a stripper, huh? You'd think she'd get enough attention to fill her needs at work, but no. Oh well, plenty of attention whores don't contribute nearly the fun around here that GD does, so good for her.

it's called drumming up business. Why she doesn't just link to an online video link in her profile is business. I mean if you are going to commit to being an AW go all out. You got all these dopes on a rope in these threads just move them over to your online camera and make a truck load of money. I guess English is easy but business is hard.
