(The Big Story)   Strip clubs in NY paid strippers to roofie patrons, and run up tens of thousands of dollars on the customers' credit cards. I don't think I want to live in a world where we can't implicitly trust strippers anymore   (bigstory.ap.org) divider line 53

They needed it because they're going to college and need a new car.  Cut 'em some slack.

Please. The terminology is "exotic dancer", not stripper.


Personally, I go for "peeler".

Did someone give the "Obvious" tag a roofie and roll it away from the headline?

It's hard to tell in a dimly lit club.

Wettner: Yikes that's what strippers look like these days?


It's pretty disappointing these days. The club around here is full of desperate 30-40 year olds with fat bellies begging to give you $25 lap dances.

I miss the days when a crisp $10 would get you a joyous lap dance from nubile, tattoo free,21 year old twins.

Well, better a mickey in New York than the Heartland alternative where you're just trying to fark a stripper in a back room and a couple of guys waiting with improvised weaponry rob you under threat of violence, right?

"The roundup followed an undercover investigation that found that the women joined in a scheme to rip off the men by drugging them with the stimulant methylone, commonly known as "molly,"

Wow that is all types of wrong, M1 is similar in effect but is not molly and is much more dangerous and you also don't forget entire nights on it. Roofies were not even mentioned in the article.

Strippers slipping mickeys to patrons? What is this, bizarro world?

What's next, strippers killing patrons and stuffing them into their trunks until they can dig a shallow grave out in the woods?
You know how hard it is to use a shovel while wearing stripper boots? Well, neither do I, but I imagine it's difficult.

This is essentially what the Gold Club in Atlanta got busted for years ago, minus the roofies. Will strip clubs ever learn?

Buddy of mine got cleaned out of 3 grand in one night, roughly a little over a months pay. Never tell the strippers that they can order whatever they want to drink. Several bottles of krystal later he nearly had a heart attack when he got the bill. He had no idea what krystal was, or how much it cost. He's not even sure they drank it. When he was about to throw a fit several large gentlemen surrounded him and started getting pushy until he produced a credit card to pay for it all, then they let him leave. I laughed my ass off when he told me about this, I had heard about this kind of thing in Japan when the yakuza pulls this trick on salarymen but it was the first time I had heard of it happening here in Texas. Hell I worked for a year in strip clubs and never saw the dives I worked at try to pull that shiat (early 90's) and believe me they would have had me in on that kind of crap.

Strip clubs, you will get screwed, but you will never get laid. Unless you work out something for after hours.

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'll ask anyway.

Strip clubs accept credit cards?  The strip clubs I have gone to were strictly cash only.

/Or I just go to shiatty strip clubs.

Chris Rock routines notwithstanding I've known a fair number of students who did strip from Freshmen through Doctoral candidates. It paid better than work-study, and the hours were more flexible.

Personal anecdotes notwithstanding, drugging someone and taking their money is wrong whether you want a new car or a doctorate.

Wettner: "that's what strippers look like these days?"

That's what essentially-former-strippers look like. They're delivering clientele to a club for a finders fee *because* it brings in more money than personally performing. The setup takes as a given that their 'experience' is a liability for a dancer, which necessarily means that fresher faces have displaced them.

Good on them, I say, for finding a career fork that leverages their experience as an asset.

Except for those absolutely morally bankrupt hoes dosing and robbing people.
fark that noise.

Wettner: Yikes that's what strippers look like these days?


Let me introduce you to Lendergle's Economic Index (the LEI), the only economic indicator that is 100% accurate.  It's definition:  The economic health of any geographic area is indicated by a factor from 0 to 100, calculated by surveying all female sex workers therein, rating their attractiveness on a scale from 10 and then multiplying the result by the per-capita relative abundance of sex workers over a ten year period.

Or, in other words: When the economy is doing poorly, there will be more strippers and they will be extremely attractive.  But when the economy is better, there will be fewer and less attractive strippers.

Based on those pictures, the economy's doing pretty well these days.  Damn you, Obama!

I don't go to strip clubs anymore, but I sort of miss the good old days when strippers would share their cocaine with me.

"You want a bump?"

Of course I did and after that I wanted a dozen lap dances.  She knew what she was doing.

What we need is a regulated market where strippers can offer cocaine and lap dances in exchange for cash.

/also, there sometimes is sex in the champagne room
//maybe the strippers just didn't want to fark Chris Rock
///strippers!

Does not have to be the Heartland nor does it need to be in the back room.

Strip clubs employ women who undress and perform dance routines for payment. This activity attracts perverts and social misfits.


Liquor is served in dishonest measures at exorbitant prices. The decor is cheap and tawdry. The music is loud and intrudes upon any attempt at pleasant conversation.


Cigarette smoking has been eliminated, though this means that the inside of the establishment smells less like stale tobacco and more like a full room of men of the sort who must pay cash in order to stare at bare breasts.

If you make a quick trip to a local grocery store wearing decent shoes and a clean shirt, you can easily strike up interesting conversations with attractive women, many of whom will allow you to stare at their bare breasts without any surcharge or minimum drink requirement.

Honestly, I've never understood the whole titty bar thing. When I was in my late teens-early 20s, most of the thrill was doing something "forbidden". I realized very quickly that it's just separating you from your money.

are you kidding?  Take a prepaid card with $50 on it, and you can get high and look at naked women, all on the up and up from your end because the drugs were unsolicited and without your knowledge.  It's a win-win right?

FTFA : Scores filed suit against Younan, 41, earlier this year, saying he was stiffing the club on $135,303 worth of charges he'd racked up during numerous visits there late last year.

If you keep going back, "numerous visits", it's a bit harder to be sympathetic.
 
2014-06-11 11:02:21 PM  
None of the victims was named in court papers. But a lawyer for Dr. Zyad Younan, a cardiologist at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, identified his client as one of them.

/Nice job, counsellor.
