Lapdancing in the United Kingdom is relatively new, at least compared to the USA. A recent study by Dr. Teela Sanders and Kate Hardy from the University of Leeds found that one in four British dancers have a college degree while 14% are using strip clubs to finance their undergraduate education. I love these studies. They uncover so much pure data.
Hardy and Sanders say the 300 dancers they quizzed reported high levels of job satisfaction, the majority listing flexibility as the main attraction of working in a strip club. Dr. Sanders cites the “endless supply of women” becoming strippers. “These women are incredibly body confident. I think there is something of a generational cultural difference. These young women do not buy the line that they are being exploited because they are the ones making the money out of a three-minute dance and a bit of a chat.”
Hardy and Sanders did call for better government regulation to improve dancers’ safety, like banning private rooms to reduce the danger to dancers from shady customers. Unemployed college graduates who couldn’t find jobs with their degrees in the lousy economy made up a large percentage of the dancers they surveyed. (I don’t think the recession has increased the ranks of big-boobed girls in modeling.)
So support higher education. Buy a lap dance this week. Because a behind is a terrible thing to waste.
And if you see a SCORE-sized pair of knockers on a dancer, please tell her about the BeASCOREModel scholarship program.
