Nation’s only unionized strip joint closes. San Francisco’s Lusty Lady peep show became a workers’ cooperative in 2003 and the SEIU dancers put everything they had into the venture but it wasn’t enough… even though, as you can see from the picture, they had plenty to put.

This is a sex business. Even at the lowrst levels, how could they NOT make it? Seriously. How could ANYONE SCREW THIS UP? No pun intended.

They put the stage behind glass, so you’re just watching a show from a distance. I’ve never heard of such a thing. If I had walked in and seen that, I’d have walked right back out.

It’s a peep show. Peep shows are a famous art form going all the way back to Adam & Eve… okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration. The men are behind glass so they get to remain relatively anonymous, although the girls can see them. And really especially extra classy men can bring a date and have sex right there in the anonymity of their private booth where nobody can see them except the strippers. I hear.

Dunno, just been hearing it on my radio (every 15 mins!) since 5, I’ll look for it later. All I hear is separated from others for his safety, checked every 30, alone in his cell.

Ah. Weird outcome if you ask me. If guilt and shame didn’t occur to him before, why now?

Perhaps he killed himself out of fear. A guy like him in a prison wouldn’t fare too well. I am sure that the threats and possibly beatings were a daily occurance. Hopefiully anyway.

He’s a rapist, they don’t do very well being on the receiving end of that act. Probably figured he’d be better off dead than a wide receiver.

Judging what I’ve seen in the pic, I would rather have the glass there to protect me from what I might catch otherwise.

Unions are there for the least qualified and worst workers.

I’m sure there were lots of overweight and ugly strippers at the club protected by the union. i do love when a union disaster happens with so little steps (one) between product and consumer. Management is not in any of those steps.

Obviously, you don’t. Makes me wonder why, since you are attracted to the bottom of the barrel types, that you can’t seem to get any.

Because the girls aren’t scraping the bottom of the barrel for someone like the creep.

No problem at all with fat chicks. I’m not into them, so that means that the chubby chasers don’t have me to worry about as competition for their affections.

These gals look a little scary to me…might be my glasses. The fact that they unionized and then went out of business should serve as a great learning moment for them and others. People ostensibly unionize for more money and better benefits, however they rarely consider the dynamics and realities of economics when they make the decision to go union. One big factor is that when you offer a business, any business, to the public (you know, the people with the money you want a part of) you need to offer them something they actually want, or think they need. The low information voters that hang out in strip joints, less the owner operators, have limited resources (cash and possibly brains) and go where they feel they’re getting the best bang for their bucks and the union thugs (even the ones with ta-ta’s) usually want more money for less work, not a good business model, even for a strip club full of half drunk idiots who have way too much time and money on their hands and not enough brains in their heads. Looking at the picture featured above reminded me of watching my daughter’s pet rats while they played in their plastic habitat, they too were totally oblivious of reality and incapable of ‘thinking’ outside the box.

I too noticed they were not the cream of the crop. The city I work in has several “gentleman’s” clubs in it. You can tell when the looks go or when the ride has been a bit to much, they start working in the next level down until they are at the bottom of the skank ladder. That’s when all the makeup and all the alcohol won’t make Jill a pretty girl.

You beat me to it, poppajoe. I was going to say that unionization may not have been as big a problem for the San Francisco female strip club as a lack of male interest.

Talk about lazy, overpaid, union workers!
I did a stint as a truck driver pulling containers from the piers a bunch of years ago, and these guys were some of the slowest, most overpaid, jerks I ever had to deal with.

Thanks. I got very little sleep last night, and my blood sugar was up (145) as a result. I ate breakfast and forgot to take my metformin, and 2 hours later was at 202 and feeling very off. Once I remembered to take the pill, it started bringing it back down. I still felt bad around dinner time and passed that up. Feeling much better now.

Leave it to crowley to not understand this story. You see, The Fed is great for the strip club industry. They print zillions of crisp bills that are then handed over to the strippers onstage. This is very simple.

Just because you get a thrill shoving silver coins up your ass, doesn’t mean everyone else does.
Did that RARE 1936 Walking Liberty SILVER Half you bought on ebay fit well? Or did you have to use the 9″x11″ Sand Paper Assorted Grit to make it fit?
You are getting more weird though, I can’t figure why you bought the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Princess Luna 13 Inch Plush Doll Toy, or did you wear out your inflatable Ron Paul love doll?
BTW, 49 transactions in the last 12 months? Did you get a raise in your welfare checks?
