Three Naked Ladies

with one comment

Just discovered this series of blog roundtables, “Three Naked Ladies,” about the past couple decades of strip club history, from some ladies who’ve been there:

For as a long as there’s been music, women have danced for the entertainment and titillation of men. Scheherazade. Minsky’s Burlesque. Cage dancing go-go girls in the psychedelic 60’s. Times Square strippers, pole dancers and lap dancers. Women dance. Men watch.

Three naked ladies talk about their view from the stages and laps in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today.

Give it a read. Good, not-so-clean fun, with lines like “The top shelf joints of the 90’s seemed like an Evening Gown Barbie factory,” and some interesting insights (if you’re into this sort of thing) into how regulation and commercialization has changed the industry since the 1970s.
