I'm really surprised at the posts that talk about "most of the guys" do this or "all of the strippers" are prostitutes, or that strip clubs are "nasty, smelly, places" when it's obvious the poster has never even been to a club. If you don't know for sure - don't open your mouth - you're just spreading nonsense.
The majority of the clubs in Florida do NOT allow 2-way touching! That can get customers thrown out on their asses by a very large bouncer and can get the girls fined or fired. Some don't even allow nude dancing - it depends on the city/zoning regulations. In some, if there's nudity, there's no friction dancing, it has to be table dancing. Some don't allow the girls to even bend over if their bottoms are off. Some clubs regulate thongs (min 1" across the back) and painted-on latex to cover nipples to even allow a dancer to work. Call the club and ask about their specific rules if you're after the truth. Or go there and ask the girls. There are undercover cops in the large clubs all the time and patrons and girls alike do get arrested for breaking laws.
Sure, it happens. There will always be some girls that will sleep with guys for money(in and out of the clubs), and guys that will pay for it - but they are in the minority in strip clubs. That's what escort services are for. Most girls in strip clubs are there to dance, to make money. It's their JOB, so they should get PAID(they do have to pay the club, dj, and bouncer out of their tips in order to work there). The guys are there to see naked/half-naked women, be fawned over and to pay for it - so how the hell are the men being "taken advantage of"? They should get the show for free?? If they want it for free - they should ask their wives and girlfriends to put on a show. Frankly, the reverse situation is more often the case - with men trying to see how much they can get away with(and how little they can get away with spending). Or they assume that the dancer would sleep with them for money. So who is exploiting who?
For the woman concerned about her future husband: I've seen guys you would think were great guys turn into animals, and/or proposition dancers the night before their weddings. I've also seen men behave like gentlemen, never touch girls inappropriately, just watch them dance, pay for dances, have a few drinks then leave. And I know that there are girls who will sit on a guys lap and grind him off though his trousers for the number of songs he's paid to have her on his lap, though that would not be happening out in the open. To relieve men of accountability by saying "men are going to be men" isn't the answer. You have to ask yourself if you (1)even want to marry a guy who would go to a strip joint for his bachelor party,(2) you trust that he's telling you the truth. If you feel you have to dig elsewhere for information, you have your answer. Marriage is about trust and open communication. If you don't have that, you're going to have bigger problems in the future than what he did on just one night.

You are all idiots. I have been a dancer, stripper, exotic entertainer what ever you want to call US for seven years. I have performed classy beautiful shows in Texas, Las Vegas, and California at the upmost high scale clubs who audiences include people like Madonna, Harris Ford, etc. Burlesque as been around for centuries. Bet none of you have heard of Josephine Baker because you are too busy pointing your fingers due to your own insecurities instead of educating yourself or keeping your ignort opinions to yourself.
Most adult entertainers have families they are helping to support; a significant other and/or children. Some are putting themselves through college and even working on getting their masters in such fields as chemist, lawyers and psychology. I know because I have worked with such women. A strip club is the last place a man is going to get laid. He would have a better chance at the local beer joint or pub in his neighborhood. During my own experience I have never worked with a woman that prostituted. I myself have never been propisitioned or touched in any ill manner until I went to be a cocktail server at a local bar where a man took the liberty of coming up behind me to grab a piece of my backside with his hand. I have never been so disrespected or violated in an adult club.
Of course there are always bad apples. And if they exist it means that the club has bad management. It has been my experience that most of the adult entertainers run girls off that are "no good" because there is a reputation factor for the club, the girls and it jeapordizes our safety.
We are only trying to make very good money like everyone else. Unfortunately not everyone has the guts, the looks, nor the intelligence to do this type of entertainment and they are usually the ones that point ignort fingers, opinions and slurs towards the majority who can.
It is not fair to label every stripper as a drug user, drug pusher, hiv infected, whore. Just as it is not fair to label every doctor a quack, every lawyer a snake, and every ditch digger as a slacker. We all do what we have to do to make ends meet and most of us try to do it with integrity and pride no matter what business we choose to earn our money in.
It is unfortunate that a man was killed at a strip club. Who knows how the altercation began but one man finished it who perhaps should not have been among the law abiding citizens. This kind of crime happens every where. Not just at strip clubs.
By the way, some of my best tippers have been straight professional business women. It's 2011 people. Stop living in the dark ages. If you really want to know about prostition, open your bibles and actually start reading them or hit the streets in the crack ridden, impoverished streets of high crime areas and start interviewing.
