onyxruby: Strip clubs, where older feminists thinks the men are exploiting the woman and younger feminists think it's the women exploiting the men.

As for the men, all they think about is boobies...

Dragonflew: onyxruby: ... and younger feminists think it's the women exploiting the men.

I'm calling BS on that one, I have never known a feminist to consider a male a victim of anything.


Well, sorta. Showing them your tits for money is how you get yours back. Money > Whatever it is you're losing (if anything) by letting them see you naked. And if being the center of attention makes you happy, it's win-win.

Anyway, I've never been a strip club kinda guy.

I knew some people in college that made a pretty big deal out of how often they went and how much they spent. I thought about them, who they were, what else they valued, how many times they had retaken certain classes, how sad, fat, lonely and dejected their girlfriends (if they had them) were, how sad, fat, lonely and dejected they were, and decided it wasn't a crowd I wanted to hang with.

I don't feel like I'm missing much.

I also knew a few strippers in college (who would admit to it. I'm sure others didn't.) Takes all kinds. Most of them finished their degrees and moved on to other things, so I'm not sure I agree with the "dumb lying stripper" stereotype very much.

Also, only the abnormally pretty ones ever make the news.

Worked for 6 months at a strip club in Atlanta. No less than 6 girls were full time students at college at the time.

No, you're right, that can't be true. My bad.

Laugh it up boys....

truth of the matter is female strippers are better educated than the general population. They also report higher than average job satisfaction. And they average nearly 75k per year (while working significantly less hours than the typical office drone).

And feminists in their late twenties don't care, because there's free wi-fi, cheap beer and the wings are surprisingly good.

CSBS:

I've been eating some of my lunches and dinners at a place that's not quite a strip club, but very close, for nearly four years because the wi-fi is fast, the food is cheap and tasty and the staff are nice. Male clientele see a woman with glasses and a laptop and assume I'm the place's tax accountant, so none of them bother me, and the female staff know I'm there for Internet, food and sometimes someone to pass the time of day with because I don't have many female friends and sometimes it's just nice to be around other ladies and talk about the things ladies talk about. I work a lot of hours in a really male-dominated industry and live in an area with very few people my age, let alone other girls, and sometimes I just really want to have conversations about frivolous media and gossip before going back to buildings full of geek guys and little kids. It's my escape, and when my husband's off on a business trip or eating with his colleagues, I have a place to go where I can be Spidey, One Of The Girls, rather than Spidey, the Only Woman In The Department.

So there's one regular, a guy who wants to hear all about their latest shoe purchases and how they feel, another regular, me, who wants to hear all about the TV shows they're watching, whether the new Sephora catalog has anything good and what everyone thought of the latest current events, and a third regular who just really loves watching them drink Slurpees. They have to be blue Slurpees and the ladies have to enjoy them, otherwise he's just there for food and Internet.

Guys come for T & A, I come to hear about lip gloss and Lifetime movies. We've all got needs.

That, and I've been getting the best advice on shoes on days when they seat me by Sandals and Slingbacks Guy.

Most strip clubs allow the young ladies to be private contractors. They pay 'rent' for the stage or whatever else they use. And they make their own schedules. It lowers the liability to the club, and they can get around minimum wage requirements. And that's without considering multiple shifts, ect.

/ but, I digress; I imagine she was a nurse during the week and a stripper Friday and Saturday night

Agreed. A friend of mine did it years ago as an "on the side" kind of gig. Earned enough cash to take a really amazing trip around the world (Australia, Japan, China, India, a safari in Africa, etc.). She has some really great stories (and interesting observations as to what does and doesn't get tips (hair down generates more cash than pony tail or hair up, red nail polish on toes does better than clear, open toed shoes do better, etc.) She's MIT grad, but she intentionally played the "dumb" role. The one time she admitted she was an MIT grad to someone led to a very disappointing evening, from a cash perspective. The amusing (to me) part about it is that she's a lesbian, so we used to bars and check out women together... As a guy, it was kind of depressing (but I guess predictable), to hear about some of the dumb stuff guys did when she was stripping for them. Bottom line - it's not necessarily a bad deal, but one needs to be careful to avoid some of the hard drug use that runs through that subculture...

johnnyq: cgraves67: johnnyq: cgraves67: That happened to my favorite strip club. Unfortunately, the fire drew too much attention to the fact that they were doing things that might have been a little illegal, so it wasn't rebuilt.

I remember something happening to a club here 10+ years back. IIRC, there were stories going around that the place/owners were being scrutinized for shady dealing at the club and the fire just happened to come a "convenient" time. You could be talking about the same club, for all I know.

Probably harder to find one that doesn't have shady goings-on.

Curt Blizzah: Sad to lose the Mouse's Ear, fondly remembered as the "Gray ballet"...

It was a nice establishment, where you could bring in your own liquor and purchase $5 dixie cups of sodas to mix.

Two CSBs:

My brother is known by many of the ladies in town due to his time spent as a DJ and owner of clubs in the area, dancers included (they would head out to the night clubs after their shifts). Years ago, he met his future wife-to-be, and quit surrounding himself with the many hot ladies he used to have around. He would occasionally kick them down to me, fortunately. It was a good time had by all...;) When my sister's husband-to-be had his bachelor party, my brother couldn't attend, as it was out of town. When we got back in town, my brother wanted his good buddy, my bro-in-law to be, to have our 2nd bachelor party at the Mouse's Ear. As soon as we went in the door, the ladies swooned to my brother and had the whole 10-15 ladies in our section talking to him like they were all friends. It was cool, like an old reunion where I was a spectator guest. I whispered to my brother, "I don't know why you don't come out here more often." Then, he replied, "What makes you think I don't..." What a punk!


-and-


I went with a lady-friend one time with a big bottle of Jack. We had a blast! Well, except the girl had a little trouble when "Showtime" occurred: that's when all the full-nude pierced girls all got on the stages and surrounded all of us pumping hips in our faces no matter where you turned. She looked like a scared deer in headlights, and proclaimed in a PTSD tone, "there were vaginas everywhere..." I have to admit, it was a little excessive, and reminded me of the first time I got drunk and went to a sports bar with all of the many TVs showing a bunch of games at the same time; it's a ton of stimuli at once and difficult to process at the same time. When the first "Showtime" was over (there were 3 or 4 of them that night; we were there a long time...we had to f ...


Never, EVER feel bad about not tipping a stripper you don't like even if they seem to have the need. The worst times (multiple, I learn lessons slowly...) I've ever had at a strip club I made the mistake of tipping the 'ugly' or 'fat' or otherwise 'why are you here' stripper...

You can't get rid of them (even if you don't give them any more money), and no other stripper will even approach you... Strippers mark their territory... Don't be in the ugly girls territory.

No doubt...I wish I would've used my senses at another place, then I'd still have my 'Stan from South Park' hat. I ran out of money, and this big chick with heavy boots (not a euphemism) asked what she could do to have it when I was trying to leave. I really noticed her boots because she kept using them while on stage: when the customers put down a dollar, she'd pull them in with her boots like a neck hook, back and forth, close to her. I had a few drinks in me, and she offered to take me in the back room for what she said would be more than --i'm not sure what she said really, but made it sound appealing--. She was the least attractive girl in the place, but I wasn't done looking at breasts and naked, I guess. I said, 'sure' and we went to a not-VIP-looking room and gave her the hat (which was new, but I got it on clearance for like $5). She proceeded to head-hook me a little (again, not a euphemism), and kind of roughed me up/beat me up a little bit. I knew I had received the bad end of the deal, and I left before she was done on the "dance". I would think a professional performer would ask the person what kind of things they liked in that regard, but I left before getting all bruised up. From now on, I just stick to the chicks who blow in my ears and say sweet things before taking my money, not the 'hat hagglers'.
