What you've just said is simply not true, at least in London in place such as SR and in other less well known establishments. I'm not saying it doesn't happen but NOT in plac es such as SR, as I said earlier, my missus and her friends have interviewed many of the girls at SR. They were under no circumstances 'toeing the company line' either.

I'd be dead interested to read that article if its onloine at all, or indeed in any other way!

I was taking my info from an article in the Observer (I think - I have the original at the other work site, I'll see if I can get at it later), which was quite clear. I'm not sure which bit you are saying isn't true - the poor pay (which the bloke from SR inadvertently agreed with last night) or the 'extra's'/private dancing? Both things were taken from the previously mentioned article. Also, one SR in London (Tott Ct Road? somewhere v central for sure) is currently under police investigation for coke & crack dealing, ands the explicit running of a prostitution racket. Not that that means that's what goes on generally, but it does rather indicate that it goes on in some of them - which is hardly surprising really.

Did your partners research cover anything on the rate of attacks on women outside the club by any chance? That is what is the big issue for those who oppose te club on non-moralistic grounds

aye from the observer alright:

"Despite excitable press reports of four-figure nightly earnings, table dancers are just as likely to make a loss. Because many clubs charge dancers around £70 to work a shift, on slow nights or in quieter venues they may not make this back. The going rate for a three-minute dance is £10, a percentage of which is usually paid to the venue.[35% in the case of SR]

The big money possible at clubs like Spearmint Rhino and Stringfellows is mainly through tips, which have topped £1,000. Punters also pay up to
£200 an hour for chats. The male dancers at Stringfellows do less well: it seems their conversational skills are in scant demand, with their
admirers happy just to watch."

She didn't write the article, twas her friend. I will find out publication. Interestingly, the main reason for their presence was to interview Simon Cowell...........

the concept of a 'cultural industries quarter' is starting to do my head in - but that's another story!

Hope the club closes soon - let us know what happens.

"I do not agree with censureship in any form"

Pornography involving children, animals, unwilling or unwitting participants?
Surely there's some ethical decisions that have to be made?

"I don't agree with banning page 3 or consenting adult pornography."

Is what I said in the thread you ripped something out of context. Consenting adult pornography basically means all that you have listed is irrelevant in terms of what I said in the thread.

Lets rip something out of context and ignore, or not bother to read, anything which may be of importance to the arguement.

Apart from mispelling censorship, I ain't the one who has made a mistake - %£*$er

"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."

"I don't agree with banning page 3 or consenting adult pornography"

"and I do not agree with censureship in any form"

...What does "and I don't agree with censorship in any form" mean other than what it says, even in your context?
