Good for him. He's using his status and wealth to offset his disability to meet his sexual needs.

You don't stop wanting it just because you're no longer young and hot, no matter how icky our youth-oriented society makes sex among the physically atypical (in whatever manner) appear to be.

Magorn: Grables'Daughter: dragonchild:

I would imagine the problems would be the same as any, like foodservice or hotels -- the worst customers aren't the "weird" ones but the assholes.

You said it.

I had two dear friends who were professional ecdysiasts, one at a non-descript joint on the block in Baltimore, the other at a very high class women-friendly club in New Orleans called "Maiden Voyage" .(which vibe was apparently ruined when new management bought it about 10 years ago). both of these women were sweet, kind and extremely sex-positive individuals, and inadvertantly they ruined strip clubs for me forever. They did that by telling me what stripper really thought of their "clients", and the overriding emotion wasn't hatred, it wasn't lust, it wasn't even cold calculation on how to take their money. It was pity. They felt bad for the guys who had to come to their places and spend tons money just to see pretty girl naked or have a conversation with one.

I could handle being despised, or thought of as a mark, but pitied? No.

and outside of a bachelor party that was the last time I went to one


I don't feel that way at all about my customers, really.

I will say this: a girl that knows how to listen instead of talk will make a lot more money.

I really have to roll my eyes at all of the girls - especially the new ones that flat out walk right up to a customer and blurt out: "Want a dance?"

Nope. Walk up to a customer, introduce yourself, and then ask if he minds if you sit with him. Then, LISTEN to what he has to say. What kind of work does he do? What does he like to do for fun? Shut up and LISTEN and you are much more likely to get a guy to spend money on you.

Just my 2¢.

Primum: I wish the U.S. was as liberated...free, in other words...as UK or Germany, where you can get a legal, safe escort and not be worried about being jailed or having your "John pic" put up on a freaking billboard, or worse.

If it were easier to emigrate to first-world countries from here I'd do it in a heartbeat. Fark the USA and its god-bothering mouthbreathers

/yeah yeah door-hit-ass love-it-leave-it blah blah


I've dated in the US and Germany and I can tell you American girls tend to be farking horrible compared to Germans. Dates with American girls seem half interrogation half boring monologue about themselves. German girls will actually converse and ask questions without constantly trying to talk about themselves. I think a big reason forto the difference is the lack of safe, clean, affordable brothels in the US. Women in the US can act however they like and men just have to put up with it because there's no alternative besides abstinence. In Europe they have to compete with prostitutes. If you go out with a girl in Germany and she's a narcissistic coont you can just go to a prostitute to take care of your blue balls. In the states you just have to put up with the narcissistic biatch or not get laid.

I felt out of place at clubs for an entirely different reason. I'm usually not the sort of guy who draws a girl's attention, but most girls at clubs -- even the smoking hot ones -- couldn't get me hooked because I'm a sensitive guy. I could easily tell they were feigning interest. Actually a lot of them didn't even bother doing that, and the huge gap between how "fun" the place is supposed to be and just how miserable the half-naked girls looked made me seriously uncomfortable. When a girl just looks and moves and talks like she'd rather be somewhere else, I feel pity and want to get the fark out of there.

Grables'Daughter: I will say this: a girl that knows how to listen instead of talk will make a lot more money. I really have to roll my eyes at all of the girls - especially the new ones that flat out walk right up to a customer and blurt out: "Want a dance?"

I've heard others say similar things. Hell, Americans like to make fun the "hostess bars" in Japan, and having been dragged to them by co-workers I really thought they were pathetic. But really, they're selling the same thing as the most successful ecdysiasts -- attention -- and they don't even need to strip to do it.

What amazes me is how many are so godawful at flirting, but these places are everywhere anyway. I'm honestly curious -- am I the exception? Are most guys oblivious that it's all an act (and usually not even a good one), or do they just choose to ignore it? Because their disinterest is so screamingly obvious to me that not even staring at bewbs can get me to ignore it. I mean, again, I just feel bad, like I'm bad company or something, which sounds like the opposite of how the girls are supposed to make their customers feel. Maybe it's a numbers game and I'm the ...


My thought is that you're taking the concept of going to a strip club way too seriously. Find a girl who likes to go to strip clubs with you, and you'll have an entirely different outlook on the experience.

I think that most guys, myself included, think that the girls are actually having a fun time. We know it's an act and their primary interest is getting money and they wouldn't do it if they didn't need the money (like most of us with any other type of job), but they probably (we think) at least enjoy their job.

Here's the way that I see it. Stripping pays good money, but typically a girl isn't likely to do it if she hates it (obviously, exceptions apply). She most likely enjoys some parts of her job. If you as the customer are courteous and also not a cheapskate, they might actually enjoy putting a smile on a decent guy's face. That's what I tell myself anyway. Admittedly, I don't go very often - I'd say I've been to strip clubs a total of 3 times within the last 7 or 8 years.


I love what I do for a living. Love it. And I think that your comments are dead on.

/If he's been doing this since say, 1990 - there could be a 21 year old woman out there with the looks of her exotic dancer mother and the mind of Dr. Hawking.
//Of course, she could also end up with the looks of Newt Gingrich and the mind of Rick Santorum - genetics is funny that way.


This has been attributed to both Albert Einstein and George Bernard Shaw, and it's probably completely apocryphal, but it's a good story:
This really hot but obviously ditsy girl goes up to Einstein or Shaw and says that they should have a baby together, because with "your brains and the my looks, the kid would be unstoppable." Einstein or Shaw retorted, "ah, but what if the kid had your brains and my looks."

If this is not some obscure quote, and is an actual thought process, then this is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in print.

I would love you to expound on your thought process; specifically with regards to the first five lines.
