For a party that runs on a platform of denying women fundamental rights, and whose Presidential candidate has vowed to crack down on porn, they sure do love us sex workers a whole bunch.

I laughed my way through half that article.

snip:
His [Joe Redner] first club was called the Night Gallery. In 1982, Redner opened the Mons Venus, and police responded with repeated raids. Sometimes, Redner recalls, he'd be arrested three times on the same day and hauled off to jail.

"It just went on and on," he says. He posted signs outside the club, with messages such as: "Come and watch your local vice squad at work".

Yeah, the girls will do a lot better at the other convention....you know the one where the keynote speaker is a de facto sexual predator.

It's only fair that the girls have someplace to make money since the sexworkers most likely to be making money in Tampa are the boys.

Why is that, because Joe Biden is going and his supporters will show up? I don't think Congressmen Frank and Cicilline (my Rep unfortunately) have been invited to Tampa.

That's not necessarily true. These nice, conservative, young men (http://hypervocal.com/news/2012/10-conservatives-cruising-for-gay-sex-at-cpac/) at the conservative CPAC convention probably won't be spending much time with female sex workers if they go to Tampa.

LOL.

That's almost as funny as Ted Haggard.

Democrats are no more pro-sex worker than Republicans. In fact, Massachusetts, one of the most liberal states in the country, is very tough on both strip clubs and escorts. The state has tough no contact laws, cities and towns that severely limit where strip clubs can open and a state police force that expends a ton of resources each year just to net a few escorts and their johns. Conversely, places like Texas and Florida, the first very conservative and the second somewhat conservative, have a shit load of strip clubs, including some of the loosest clubs in the country.

The reality is that there are elements in both parties that dislike sex work. In the Republican party, it is the religious nuts who view sex workers as contributors to moral decay. In the Democratic party, it is the feminists and feminist-sympathizers who think that they need to save sex workers and/or who blame sex workers for objectifying women.

IMHO, how it plays out in any given state depends not only on the party in control, but on how much influence certain elements in each party have upon governmental actions in that state.

cant wait for the day when making potshots abt men having sex with men by (presumably) straight men isnt a group lulz activity :D

both parties are super repressive against sex work while still blissfully indulging. Eliot Spitzer ring a bell...

conventions bring a lot of business, good luck to the men and women turning that dollar

Hello Roast,

I wasn't taking shots at these men because they're gay. I was doing it because they're hypocrites. They go to a convention that is sponsored by people who are anti-gay and oppose gay rights, then they go out at and try to hook up with other men.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2011/02/17/cpac_will_prohibit_pro_gay_marriage_anti_dadt_spon sors_in_2012.html

In the past, I've also linked to articles documenting the hypocrisy of straight conservatives, such as a married congressman who tried to hook up with a woman on CraigsList.

I agree with you about Eliot Spitzer. I'm fully in favor of legalized prostitution. Eliot Spitzer got what he deserved, for prosecuting people while he was engaging in the same type of activities himself.

Hypocrites exist on both sides of the aisle. I wouldn't even consider trying to defend hypocritical conservatives, but the democrats attacking the GOP, supposedly in the interests of women and then having Clinton (accused of 1 rape, 2 sexual assaults, and the Lewinsky debacle) as the keynote speaker is the very pinnacle of hypocrisy.

This convention is bringing NO bisiness. I stay right across the street from were most of the delegates are staying( yesterday since they were expecting the huriricane weather) they had a huge party kid rock and a ton of celebrities....I worked and my girlfriend at the 2 best clubs her we had 5 people through the door they had a few more but no one made much. I also worked at a famous club in tampa the other night again ....nothing. Thee republicans aren't going to be out spending. I remember when I started dancing in Denver and they had the dnc there( I skipped it) and that was when the economy was much better and the girls said it was their worst week in years.....not even regular conventions are a guarantee of stellar money nowadays, believe me that's how I make my living.....traveling to places for conventions, events.

Not to defend the GOP or anything but i don't see why anyone would expect them to pack the strip clubs on the few days they get to make a good impression.

That is an excellent point. In fact, from what I have been reading, reporters are camping out at the strip clubs in the hopes of catching convention members in the act, so to speak.

Well they are going to busting at least 3 clubs in tampa every night....so yeah I doubt thee guys will risk going in which is already so far been the case. especially with all the smart phones out there......

This seems to make the case the liberal media is at fault then as opposed to the conservative conventioneers.

Michelle11: I was more tailing off of the jabs about male escorts - ll speak from experience then as I wasnt referring to dancers: conventions, regardless of political affiliation, bring a lot of business for fetish providers. I'd guess for others who do 1-on-1 and more private sex work than club dancing, but I dont have much IRL comparison. Sorry for the confusion, didnt mean to imply it is safer.

They love watching these women dance, wiggle, and strip for them...yet they don't want to see them get the healthcare or have the rights they so deserve? Not sure if this is irony or hypocrisy...Maybe both?

At the national level, the Republican Party is much worse. They're now calling for a crackdown on pornography.

When Bush was President, pornographers (adult) were prosecuted and thrown in jail.

I'll avoid wading into the partisan BS here about which party is more perverted other than to remind those with short term memory loss that Newt Gingrich, the guy who single-handedly tried to bring Clinton down-semingly for nothing more serious than getting a blow job from an ugly woman, also cheated on his wife (while she had cancer) and, after being cited for ethics violations, was asked by his own party to step down as speaker of the house. LOL, there's a reason why I've been a registered independent since I was 18 and always will be. Just sayin...

Anyway....

I've never really understood the connection that the media or for that matter, SC owners, dancers and customers try to make between political conventions and strip clubs. There simply isn't one. CNN went back to all of the Tampa clubs that they had visited before the RNC (all were anticipating big bucks, girls buying new outfits and one club hiring a Sarah Palin look-a-like feature dancer) just a few days ago and pretty much everyone, owners and dancers alike, reported no uptick in business. The clubs were pretty much dead. Now, of course everyone is going to try and blame it on the weather but that's a pant load of BS. Political delegates aren't the Shriners on some sort of men-only, what-happens-at-the-convention-stays-at-the-convention holiday. These people have work to do. Their time is pretty tightly accounted for. Not only that, a larger percentage than ever before are women and many delegates of both sexes bring their families to the convention. Add to that the extreme amount of publicity surrounding these conventions, the fact that lobbyists, candidates and committees etc have private gatherings, dinners and parties going on just about every waking moment that the delegates are not on the convention floor and what do you get? Well, what you don't get is large groups of delegates partying in strip clubs! I live and work in the Boston area. When the DNC came here on 04' the local strip club and escort boards where on fire talking about all the business they were going to do. Know what? It didn't happen. Now, granted, Boston proper only has a few clubs but they did nothing, the clubs in the burbs did nothing and even the clubs in Providence-only an hour away-did nothing out of the ordinary for business during that week.

It's just not a factor...yet, every four years, the threads appear, even here...

Agreed. When I danced in clubs I worked in both Illinois and Indiana. Illinois is blue and Indiana is generally red (though went blue last election because of the proximity of NW Indiana to Chicago). Yet Illinois had by far stricter rules on dancing. The Indiana clubs were very lax on many rules and some had no rules at all. A few of the Illinois clubs I danced at got busted. The Illinois clubs were all in Cook County which is very left wing. Incidentally one of the "family values" right wing politicians who helped impeach Clinton used to frequent a club I danced at too.

In 2006, my good friend and fellow DJ went to the ED convention in Vegas, where the speaker at one presentation about stripclubs and the law told his audience that if they wanted to keep stripclubs in business, they should vote Democrat.

Romney just came out in favor of prosecuting pornographers. This should scare everyone associated with the adult industry.

"Recalling the tactics used when he served for two years in the Reagan administration and four years in the George H.W. Bush administration, Trueman said, “we had a target list put together by the LAPD and the FBI that consisted of about 60-65 top producers and distributors in the fifty states. We prosecuted them, and most of them went out of business or went to jail.”

After President Bill Clinton assumed office, Trueman said, the number of porn prosecutions plummeted and they have remained rare ever since."
