I talked in last month’s blog about some falsehoods and stereotypes of strip clubs, and this month I want to talk about a few more. If you missed last months., please go back and get caught up before you read this month.
So, let’s start with a false hood that people think all “Strippers are Broken” …Let me tell you this, that is about the craziest thing I have ever heard. The strippers I know and love are far from broken; they are in it for the easy cash. And I am talking a lot more cash than they could make working a regular 8 to 5 job. Some dancers, who have children, find it an easy way to support their children, while allowing them to be there for them more. Some of the girls are paying their way through college and use what they have learned from dancing (sales and communication skills) and apply them to the real business world.
Now I am sure there are some “broken” strippers out there…but aren’t there “broken” people in all kinds of jobs? The general public is more mentally disturbed and, on more drugs, than most dancers are.
Another falsehood is that strip clubs are bad for the neighborhood. If any of you have seen where Jill’s is located, let me tell you it is in an isolated area of Dallas Pike. Not a lot of families or people live near it, so there are no children or close-minded adults to “scar”. And, Jill’s is actually a very classy looking building. They have no windows where ladies are hanging out of, ready to solicit anyone for sex. They have no flashing lights to attract your attention or no nude photos of women on the outside. Just a banner that has the words
Jill’s Gentlemen’s club….a class act. That’s it. Some people could even drive by it and not even realize that it is a strip club if they didn’t see the sign. Another falsehood myth resolved.
And lastly, strip clubs are always trying to “rip you off”. When you come to Jill’s or any other strip club, you know for a fact that there will be a cover charge. Most places anywhere you go have a cover charge of some type. Jill’s is no different. You know you will be buying a few drinks, both for you and the ladies of your choice. You know you will tip the girls dancing in front of you if you choose to sit by the stage. You tip your waitress or waiter for good service right? Strippers are no different. And if you want an additional service, such as a lap dance or a private dance, of course you have to pay an extra fee. That’s only common sense. So, the falsehood that you are getting “ripped off” is just that… a falsehood.
So, to wrap things up, I have talked and explained all these falsehoods. I hope that the next time you hear someone say any of these things, you will be able to explain to them the truths.
Better yet, have them make the trip up to Jill’s so they can find out for their selves!! We would love to have them!
