"Are you suggesting that lap/table/pole dancers were once prostitutes?"

This wasn't what I was sugesting at all, merely that one or two may have been. I know for a fact many weren't ever. I was suggesting that if such places were shut down then they may have to find even less disireable employment. If the girls who work at such places aren't pressurised into anything else by the managers, punters etc (and this can happen) then there is far worse they could be doing.

Depending on the conditions the girls can make a lot of money. They would be exploited in a 9 - 5 and maybe have to deal with sexual harasment in the workplace. The point I was making is that unionisation could prevent some of the more unsavoury aspects that they might be exposed to.

Honeypot has no lap/table dancing and you pay the women in their a fiver to see a quick flash of their breasts, more if you want to see them for longer. This is not some Soho lap dancing joint and is more on the fringes of something less desireable. They are not dancing around, if someone payed for it would they be presurised into giving someone a hand job. I dunno. Honeypots is shittier than a lap dancing joint.

I don't agree with banning such places, as I don't agree with banning page 3 or consenting adult pornography. Though page 3 is terrible it is a problem of uneducated and sexist people and I do not agree with censureship in any form. It is a problem of attitudes and not legality.
