Man goes up to a woman in the bar and says "I`m a self-made billionaire. Will you spend one night with me for $1 million?"

She says "$1 million!? Hell yeah!!"

He says "Nah, I`m only BS`ing you, but wanna come back to my place and root me for $50?"

She says "No way, do I look like a prostitute to you!?"

He says "Well, we`ve already answered that one, now we`re just haggling over the price."

Dang. I feel sorry for any woman who ends up having to do such things based solely on the fact of there being few other options.

In my opinion strip clubs are demeaning to Both the women working there and the men paying to see the show. Don`t get me wrong, I love seeing a woman showing off the goods and moving to the music as much as any other straight guy, I`m just saying it isn`t Only the women there that are being sullied. Also, both the men watching and the women working at strip clubs Choose to be there, so who do you blame? The individual.

Yeah, when people talk intelligent it just makes me want to talk english in small words and not with big clumps of worded like a smarty. :-p

If you are capable of speaking intelligently, why not do so? It seems that people on the internet, are perfectly content with sounding illiterate and uneducated. personally, I think it`s sad.

I agree to an extent Jerry, but I believe that if most of these people were affected to a large degree by the economy, they would admit that it has hit them, even if it were in a national poll.

Sure, they may not find being a bit more thrifty or cutting some excess as a vindication of their social class. And its likely that scrimping some wouldn`t cause them to tell a pollster how middle or lower class they are.

Being hit hard though, i.e. unemployment, foreclosures, seizures, etc, I believe would cause them to be truthful about their social standing.

As it stands, a large majority of Americans have not faced such hardships, and despite some cuts, are still living relatively comfortably. And that`s a far cry from all the doom and gloom that every major news outlet has been reporting. The next Depression my ass.

look,it`s one thing if you Want to be a stripper,it`s another thing if you feel pressured to become one. I find it totally ridiculous to be okay with this. It`s def not something I`ll teach my future kids.."honey, when times get rough,get naked"??? There`s no shame at getting a job you want,life is not easy,but hell will freeze over the day I think WOMEN should abandon all hopes for a "clothed" job and become a stripper..yes I said it..dont pretend like you wouldn`t if it was you

Dakkar - when it comes to opinion polls on the economy - a subject so complex that even highly educated economists don`t understand excatly what is happening - all those polls show is you can count on uninformed people having strong, ill informed opinions.

Like if you ask people if they are in the middle class, far more people will say yes than is statistically possible, because people like to believe they are better off than they really are.

I feel bad for strippers. And I feel bad for men whose only real prospect of seeing breasts is to pay a sad woman to show them.

Then again, I do like boobies and loose women.

I don`t think working in a strip club would be so bad if it was safer some how. All of the girls I`ve talked to that are or used to be strippers have either been raped or have come close to it. The men that go to them although most are just seeking a good time where no one gets hurt there are some that don`t think of the women as actual people with lives and minds. It`s the complete objectifying that`s the problem with it. If the women were treated respectfully (I know this may seem silly to some) and that their bodies were works of art being proudly displayed and not slabs of meat being dangled around then perhaps the attitude about it would be different. But most men do not see it this way and only want to get their jollies so it`s a bit late to change that there. That`s why I have a problem with strip clubs. That`s why I find it demeaning.

Baelzar: And we all know who`s responsible for filling the heads of the public with THAT kind of unrealistic trash.

Please, calling sex a sin is like saying breathing is bad for you, or that photosynthesis is unnatural.

Please people, think, don`t JUST faith all day. THINK.

There`s nothing *wrong* with working in a strip club if the people actually do want to work there. Really though it`s mostly just demeaning for women.

It`s bad to work as a stripper in America, because sex is dirty and sinful here.

It does come down to morals... but sometimes people get so desperate that they can`t see things getting better unless they resort to less respectable ways of making money.

Like I said, I`m still jobless, so obviously my own morals get in the way of me taking a job as a stripper. But, I`m also not as desperate as some others are. I know that there are other choices, but I can still understand how it can come down to either stripping or going without food again. I mean, people are having trouble getting jobs at places like McDonald`s.

No matter how you look at it... the fact that women FEEL they have no other choice is sad, and judging them for that is unfair.

I find it relatively interesting though, that in a poll about 2 weeks ago the vast majority of Americans said they believe the economy is very bad but roughly the same percentage said the bad economy is hardly affecting them. Are we just buying into sensationalism from the media? I think its safe to say so, to a degree.

Now obviously millions have unfortunately been affected, and some will have to look to more seedy businesses for employment. But listening the the news casters anymore, its as if they are suggesting my Mom is gonna wind up working a strip club.

It is interesting though. Despite tighter cash across the board, humans will still spend on their vices. Alcohol, fast food, and pornography, among others. The human condition at its finest. And some people really believe that all humans can overcome their nature for the betterment of all...

Oh I know about desperate measures to survive. But there is always more than one option is what I`m saying. You don`t *have* to demean yourself in such a way just to make money. There`s plenty of other ways. But if it`s what you want to do then be my guest.

Young or not I still think some moral objective is in order here on some level. You don`t have to agree.

I can understand if these women WANTED to do this as a career not because they were broke then whatever that`s their prerogative.

This article just seems silly too. I`m not angry. It just seems a bit off somehow.

Challenger, don`t you think it`s possible you just got lucky? I checked your profile to see your age, but it wasn`t listed, so I`m going to have to make an assumption that you`re relatively young, without much, if any, debt. People with bills to pay don`t always have the luxury of waiting to find a job that doesn`t put them in a "compromising" position. Sometimes you have to slum it a little bit in order to get on your feet.

EDIT: Apparently, I can`t read, and your age was listed. |-X Regardless, I stand by my comment that having bills sometimes makes people resort to desperate measures in order to survive.

Randy, this particular report was about all sorts of jobs available at this particular club. However, I was referring to the upswing in girls applying for actual stripping positions. Please don`t paint me as easily manipulated by the media. I rarely watch the news because most shows are composed of a bunch of hype and scare tactics.

Also, no, women who have working husbands and a white picket fence aren`t going to work at a strip club... they don`t need to. What about single mother`s though? What about girls my age who can`t find anything else? I`ve been unemployed in this area for 8 months - actively looking. I can see how the frustration would get to a person; how the desperation would set in to force their hand at getting a demeaning job. Things are really bad right now. Just because you don`t want to admit that there are girls going into stripping who otherwise wouldn`t, who hate the idea, but are desperate, doesn`t mean that it isn`t happening.

That`s not a positive. I respect a person`s decision to do a job like that. I still find it demeaning though. That`s someone`s little girl you know :/

Just saying.

On the other hand, if I can find a job (which I did) that does not put me in a compromising situation then so can they.

So they do it to themselves. Which is still a little sad.

Anyway, that`s my opinion.

@lauraly,

After hearing only part of the video (Sorry, my computer wouldn`t play all of it), I`m not convinced that the positions being given are simply stripper positions. It could be as simple as they need servers, bartenders, et cetera. Sure, it sounds dirty when you say you`re working in a strip club (Which is what MSNBC is hoping you`ll think. It`s a nice edgy story), but that doesn`t necessarily mean the job you`re doing is going to be like that.

Anyway, I think very very very few of the people applying for the job are mothers with husbands and kids living in houses with white picket fences looking to "make ends meet". There`s plenty of other jobs out in the world that you don`t need to result to stripping for (Hell, even signing up with a temp agency). If anything, the folks signing up will be people who`ve already been in this line of work.

Jay Leno made a joke last night about the rising number of women looking for positions as strippers to make ends meet... I couldn`t bring myself to laugh. Really, it`s depressing that people can only find this means of supporting themselves. It`s one thing if you really WANT to go into the adult entertainment industry, but it`s always sad when you`re forced in due to desperation.
