Nothing compares to the bygone era of burlesque, which was lively.
I've been to strip clubs twice. I don't worry about morals, but the strip clubs certainly are boring. It's all mechanical, predictable motions watched by a handful of men who seem almost on the verge of falling asleep.
If the women can finance their education by dancing at a strip club, that's fine. The strips clubs are only about money anyway.

Well, Ive never been to one, but I for sure don't feel like Im missing anything. I don't condemn people who enjoy these types of places, but they're just not my thing.

I approve.The reason is that I don't know why I should disapprove.
It's okay as long as you are legal to enter strip clubs.
Even if I myself don't like to go to strip clubs,I won't think others are immoral when they go to strip clubs.

I worked with somebody 4 years ago and he was talking about how he and his friends went to a strip club and he said he spent over $100 one night, and that's when he said he stopped going to these places. I also heard of instances where some guys would go there on regular basis, once a week or so, and sometimes spend $500 in about 2 or 3 hours! WHY???? Good Lord! Can you imagine how much money you'd spend in a year if you went to these places once a week? That isn't any different than throwing your hard-earned money away.

After my wife got out of the military, she worked in a Strip club.. didn't bother me all that much. I trust her. It was really good money... but its a hard way to earn a living. So my hats off to the girls/guys that do it and manage to stay clean like my wife did.

I don't have a problem with it.. the human body is a wonderful thing to look at. And heck nothing wrong with a little attention in your normally lonely life..

Oh and I even worked as a bouncer for a club for a time.. you would be amazed at the number of married couples that goto these places, as well as single straight women, with a little bi-curious thing going on. If your married and goto these places.. so what.. most men don't get anything but a dance and then go home and rock their wifes world.

I knew some guys that COULDN'T get laid at all. So, being that they didn't have girlfriends, they would just go to strip club, watch some naked chicks, and get an ocassional lap dance. It is true that they would spend that amount of money, but they couldn't get it any other way. As I said before, if you are single it's fine, as long as you don't do it when you are married.

eh...I have no problem with them.Years ago I dated a couple dancers,so I got to know the scoop on some of the details.The girls that dance,are just like girls in general and that is there are different types with personality and moral scales ranging from 1 to 10,1 being being very bad..bad girls,who have a range of "issues".

It's true that some a very intelligent girls who use it as a money stepping stone,there is good money to be made depending,though places they don't always rack in the doe.But then again some girls have substance problems,and some girls dancing don't even like men if you know what I mean.

The guys?well I know magnum mike doesn't approve of it but guys are guys and guys like women,as long as guys want to go there ,there will be a market for it..same said about male nude places for girls.

I have a dear friend who dances,she is totally loyal to her boyfriend and never gets lovely dovey with the customers,with her they just get to look at her that's it..She does it for the money,and it's all about business to sell drinks.

And most of the time the guy goes home after a change of scenery and wifey gets the benefit from it.Mike mentioned he doesn't see the point how guys drop so much money and I agree yet it's their money,I think gambling is a waste of money too.

I haven't been to a dance club in 4 years,my financial situation just didn't let me,though I lost the want to go anyway,but eh...in the future I might go to one again I dunno,just have a few beers and flirt if I feel like it.

What's a joke though and waste of tax payers money is cops who set up stings going into a dance bar and arresting girls if they rub against you..phftt!!Different areas have different laws about nude dance bars but doing police stings because a dancer showed too much or got to close is stupid in my opinion.

I think if you go on rare occasion, it's fine, but if it's your regular hang-out, then there's something wrong with you.

hmmm - i'm don't know - I'm for them - I'm not really against them. I get it.

My husband likes porn but not strip clubs, he's been only for a bachelor party - and I think it was once. It's just not his thing. He'd rather chill at a pool table.

I think it depends on the guy - I had an ex boyfriend who was a complete ass. And he loved them - to him he felt like he had power or something - he liked to look down on women...

I have never been to a male strip club - I have ZERO interest - the kind of man I'm attracted to is not a firm and shaven...ewwwwwwww

And if you want me turned on - I like one on one attention - not fighting for it with a bunch of drunk women acting like idiots.
