I am not a fan of strip clubs and definitely not of Ho's. In theory strip clubs are harmless, but as of right now they are not used in the most empowering manner and they are not one of my favorite places to frequent. I've been in a few, especially when I was first starting my company, Diva Dance (Exoticise, LLC is the parent company to Diva Dance. We teach women the art of exotic dancing (pole dancing, striptease, lap dancing, and bellydancing) for fun & fitness.) I think stripping is great! Men love to see women's bodies move and after seeing the movie Burlesque for the second time, I have to admit I do too (for different reasons though). Dance is exciting and intoxicating! I love to do it, I love to watch it, and I love to teach it.
However, most strip clubs are not about dancing and performance. When I ventured into my first one out of curiousity with my honey, I just didn't get it. There was no real dancing going on, just women wiggling around on stage, against a pole, and on a guy. I guess I was expecting a full on show like what you see in Vegas or in the movie Striptease with Demi Moore. I wanted costumes, themes, and choreography! Burlesque on the other hand delivers all that more! I loved the movie, the music, the costumes, and all the sexy dancing! I think EVERY woman should be comfortable enough with herself, her body and her partner to entertain him with exotic dance (register for one of my upcoming workshops if you live in the Chicago Area).
Going out and dancing suggestively can be an excellent way to release/exchange sexual energy in a harmless manner, but sex and intimacy are meant to be shared between people in loving committed relationships. Stripclubs and Ho's provide an artificial unfulfilling source of connection between men and women. It doesn't work for me.
