PUBLIC OPINION > You're Never Too Old for a Lap Dance
News 2012/05/17 22:00:00
A 67-year-old man reportedly dropped dead of a heart attack after receiving a few lap dances at an El Paso strip club last Friday... Probably not the happy ending he was expecting. Then again, you can't expect a strip club to be easy on the ol' ticker. At least he died doing something he loved. But even ignoring health issues, is 67 too old to be getting a lap dance? We asked the public to find out.
You're never too old for a lap dance. That might not be good news for the strippers, but most people think 67-year-olds are perfectly acceptable subjects. Of course, not everyone was OK with lap dances in general -- that was a much bigger point of contention -- but if you're going to get one, it shouldn't really matter how old you are. One commenter wrote, "Do I think elderly men who choose to go to these places should use caution if they have health issues, primarily heart or blood pressure? Absolutely ... But hey, it is their choice!
More Teens Think It's Too Old
Naturally, voters over the age of 65 were mostly on-board. They're not about to exclude themselves from the fun. But teens were not so keen on the idea of letting grandpa into the strip club. They're too young to go themselves, but that hesitance extended to the 18-24 group, too. After that, it was pretty permissive across the board.
Atheists Think It's A-OK
Some respondents expressed a concern over the general morality of strip clubs and lap dances, so we thought it would be appropriate to zero in on the religious breakdown. Christians were definitely less approving than atheists, but they were still mostly OK with it. Still, there were some disapproving sentiments: "If you are old enough to get in the place you should be mature enough to not pay for that."
Some Resistance From the Women
Finally, women were almost twice as likely to say 67-year-old men are too old for a lap dance. That could be because women don't usually get lap dances, or because they don't want their men participating in the first place. But again, overall, most women were OK with it.
