Strip Clubs: Harmless pastime or dangerous addiction?

It's just a little stripping... no harm in it, right?

    Great article! Strong points and not preach-ie. It's good to hear from strong, intelligent, healthy women. Oh and I went into a strip club once. I won't go back. It was the sleaziest environment I had ever entered. Not much good things happening in there. Bad news.

    Thanks for the link, Nadirah! I definitely believe that the arguments on both sides have merit and that it's an issue that affects each couple differently.

    Excellent article, Nadirah. As an added thought you have to wonder why women who accept their partners stepping outside of the relationship to seek sexual stimulation from other (real, live) women don't seem to care they are also accepting a double standard. Surely they get bored with their guy, feel like they'd enjoy a romantic "escape" with another man who would flirt with them, listen to them, and turn them on sexually.

    What are the agreements they have about their relationship? Are both equally free to seek out sexual or romantic thrills with the opposite sex. . .or just him? Why??

    Why accept male privilege and entitlement. Most women don't feel "entitled" to escape from a state (marriage or committed relationship) they voluntarily entered. As did their husbands. Life as a mature adult involves trade-offs and they're looking the other way (or going along to participate themselves) as their partners try to have their cake and eat it too.

    Women aren't second-class citizens and they shouldn't tolerate second-class treatment.

    This is pretty sexist... Men are not animals who are unable to control their instincts. If a man wants to cheat he will do it with or without a strip club, and if he doesn't want to cheat then he won't. Besides, these are strip clubs, not brothels. Anyone who gets too touchy feely will most likely get kicked out, and the strippers aren't prostitutes...

    You have obviously never been to a bachelor party at strip clubs. A lot of those strippers are also prostitutes. What do you think the "private back room" is for? Some strippers will do a lot more than stripping if the price is right. I have seen it with my own two eyes many times. As long as she/he agrees to it, she can do what she wants. It may not be legal, but it's definitely not against strip club rules.

    I agree with XYZ, the rules are pretty fluid in strip clubs. Those strippers will do anything and everything for the right price.

    Nadira makes very valid points and there's no need for us men to jump in self defense Casey, we are as visual as she describes us, it doesn't mean that's all there is to us but the subject here is strip clubs and what goes on in there.

    Yes men don't need a strip club to cheat but the strip clubs present too many of those opportunities under that false blanket of "fun".

    I am an unmarried guy and got kinda hooked into strip clubs after attending a couple of friends bachelor parties.
    I slept with some Asian gals before, but I quickly brought myself back to order with taking the fantasy all the way, now I just go there for drinks and fun.

    I do want to quit going to such joints because frankly, anything that leaves you feeling guilty should probably be avoided altogether. Your feelings are your moral compass.
