I f one strip club gets its wayit'll be offering lap dances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The effort by the London-based Spearmint Rhino has caused a high-profile controversy, with local residents complaining the club's non-stop stripping proposition will increase crime. Bob Dear, a retired member of the Metropolitan police, is leading the bid.
Just wondering are women allowed into the strip clubs in vegas, will be heading there in a couple of weeks and Id like to go to one with DH but would die with embarrassment if they refused me enterance!!! Not a problem. I think the only one you couldn't get into--unescorted by a guy anyway--is girls of glitter gulch downtown, which is a totally lame club anyway.
On any given night at Brandi's Exotic Nightclub in Vancouver, the women equal, and sometimes outnumber, the men. Sure, it's touted as a bridge between a nightclub and a venue for adult entertainment, a comfortable place for couples and women, but you can't escape the fact that women on stage are incrementally peeling off their clothes. The advent of what some people are calling "raunch feminism" is what is driving a whole bunch of trends like this lately - from pole and lap dancing lessons under the clever marketing guise of fitness, to Girls Gone Wild, and its Canuck counterpart Wild Canadian Girls, where young women at Mardi Gras and Spring Break flash, spread and simulate lesbianism - not for money, but simply for cameras.
On the frontline of the battle for gender equality — in towns and cities round the country — the strip club industry is winning. They have deep pockets and influence. That cannot be good for gender equality. I'm a year-old grandma, with five grandchildren.
Sound familiar? For decades, the biased American media with its feminist agenda has done everything in its power to discourage men from enjoying anything that involves sexually suggestive situations with women. Men are essentially shamed and looked down upon if they openly express their sexual attraction for a beautiful woman.
On stage, one of the dancers had pinned a woman in a plastic bachelorette crown against the wall and was grinding up against her as her friends threw singles at him. Skip navigation! Those were the words that were whispered in my ear by a stripper named Roddy before he took off his shirt, placed my hands on his greased-up pecs, and gave me my first-ever lap dance.
Stripping is not some grand feminist statement. It is an obvious point but one worth making, that stripping is a highly gendered occupation. In the vast majority of cases it is women who strip and men who watch and pay - and it doesn't help the feminist cause because it reinforces sexual objectification of women in three important ways.
I wish I could smack their faces with a spiky reality stick. Wake up and smell the jizz, ladies. No reason to be truthful about that kind of thing.
Ahhh, strip clubs They're an American tradition as great as baseball and the Fourth of July. But if you haven't looked around the tip rail recently or since you started dating that nice girl from the alumni booze cruiseyou might be surprised to find they're fast becoming a popular attraction for women. And while there's plenty of advice out there for how a guy should behave in the club, there's not a lot written for the ladies.
