A history of atlanta strip clubs – georgia (ga) – page 7 – city-data forum grade 9 static electricity quiz

Honestly, it’s rather hard to come up with a firm definition, and anyone that says they have I find rather naive. After all, Jimmy Swaggart paid a woman $$$ to do nothing (allegedly) but throw marshmallows at her private parts. Was she a sex worker?

You make a very salient point. Throughout history, artists have studied and glorified the nude human body in all of its many forms. But, I believe that a strip club’s purpose is to sexually excite. At least all of the randy guys I’ve ever known do not go there to admire and study the human form; rather, they go there to fantasize and drink and wish that the strippers would sleep with them. I assure you that it is a much less considered, constructive and serious environment aw were your university human form art classes (but, I’ve got a feeling you already know that!).

I realize that for some of the dancers, stripping is a pretty rich source of money that many of the young women need. I certainly don’t think that strip clubs should be outlawed by any stretch of the imagination. I’m just sorry that the objectification, lurid stares and disgusting fantasies have to be a part of the industry. I just don’t think it societally healthy.

A successful ‘dancer’, or any artist for that matter, knows how to control and manipulate their audience and their feelings. I’ve never bought into the ‘victim’ and ‘objectification’ aspect of the argument; after all, who is handing over the $$ to whom at the end of the night? I and some colleagues went through a period of visiting clubs to determine the dynamic, the atmosphere; my cousin was involved in the industry so I had easy entry. I found that there was almost a sacramental feel to it; the men were by and large respectful and contrite when offering their dollars as if they were attending services, like they were making offerings to the Mother Goddess. It was fascinating.

Yes technically a stripper can be consider in the sex industry using broad extreme broadness of term. Hell Victoria secret model modeling lingerie could be. but A stripper is not same wheel house a prostitute, like a Doctor not like Street Drug pusher. Sexual intercourse is completely different ball game from nude dancing.

The Data you posted is flaw making a study lumping stripper with prostitution. Another error unfountely women face that harassment in general in any type of club, just a regular night club. And non party goers at all. So the "Stripper" focus was irrelevant variable because it goes along general harassment women face in any party atmosphere or any profession. That is real issues that need to be focus.

Nice post! It’s funny the labels attached to certain professions versus others. Although it’s not the same, it reminds me of Katrina when black people went into grocery stores and took food without paying to feed their children. They were called thieves, criminals while their white counterpart were called survivors doing what they must to make it.
