  2. The first time I was in a strip club, was sneaking in with older friends at 17….about 40 years ago! I just wanted to note that from my pov these clubs changed a lot, for the worse, where I live (Ontario, Canada) after a court ruling removed the ban on physical contact between dancers and patrons….I forget the exact date…at least 20 years ago.

    Whenever I hear the line that women need to watch how they are dressed because most men can’t control themselves, I’m reminded of those early days because full nudity had already been accepted in the clubs, but NO TOUCHING was allowed.

    The rule was strictly enforced. A touch or an attempt to touch a dancer walking by on stage got a tap on the shoulder, the 2nd attempt meant a couple of bikers working as club bouncers would start working over the patron while they were dragging him out a side door! Point being that I, and most of the guys who payed the cover charge to go in were able to control our urges even though we were confronted with beautiful naked women! So, where is all this bullshit coming from that still goes on today?

    It’s too bad that the rules changed for strip clubs. Because whenever I went in after the late 80′s, I noticed a complete change in atmosphere. There were no cover charges to get in the door, but the clubs were turned into semi if not outright whorehouses, where iit was impossible to sit at a table near the stage, without some girl speaking broken english standing in front of me trying to negotiage a deal to lap dance for $10 or $20. per song. If these clubs were still like the old days, I might still be going in once in awhile. But not what they’ve turned into today!
