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.

    My old roommate was (is, just no longer lives with me) a stripper. So of course from time to time id get calls to bring her something she needed or pick her up from work. Man their would be these old guys, like 70 years or older grabbing the butt of my 22 year old roommate with their tongues hanging out. Im relatively sure they have grandchildren her age. All i could think was "pervert" If i was your kid i wouldn't let you near my child.... So I guess my answer would be "yes" you can be too old, unless your cool with being considered a perv and then by all means, hop to it. at least the young guys are looking at their peers. I was a live in manny for one dancer, dated one dancer, crashed on ones couch for a long while and had one dancer roommate so the clubs never appealed to me.

    Honestly its those girls choice that they took that job and at this point I don't blame them. It is so hard to find a job and if you need money now and have the assetts then go for it. I wouldn't because I'm not comfortable with myself but if its a last resort I may do it.
  • kmay 2012/05/22 13:12:31 (edited)
    Would they like their daughter's, grandaughter's,[other relatives - wives, sisters cousins], friend's daughter's doing the same for strange men??? Sick, sick, sick.

    Biggest waste of money ever.
  • David 2012/05/22 09:29:46 (edited)
    I would personally find it a bit bizarre if my grandpa did that. And getting a lap dance from someone so much younger... ew. I mean, the dancer could be the same age as their granddaughter... yeah it's their choice but I prefer them not to.

    If a person wants to waste their money at a strip club that is their perogative. I have been a few times when I was in the military and I have always felt it to be a huge waste of money!
  • Kaleoku... Kirby 2012/05/20 23:41:15
    I always thought it was marvelous entertainment!
  • Kirby Kaleoku... 2012/05/21 13:56:46
    Here's an example of what I mean. Me and several friends go to a stip club these guy spend anywhere from 200- to one guy spent 350.00 dollars on the strippers. I spent 40 bucks on beer. This is what I pointed out to them when we left . You guys spent all that money &no way in hell are these girls going home with any of us. I spent 40 and you guys blew most of your paycheck. So you spent 200+ for a boner. A prostitute would have been money better spent.
    You're right thou it was good entertainment.

    Occasionally ,after work my partner and I stop to get a drink at little titty bar in located in Cape Canaveral,Fl. Most of the guys I see getting lap dances look 65 or older and stupid.Personally,l think lap dances are a major waste of money.If I were interested in any of the chicks,I would ask them "how much to go home and drop the linen".From experience,I know over 90% of them have a price.

    No, that person was probably going to get a heart attack regardless, if not at the strip club when he was driving home.

    Hey! This guy probably hadn't been that close to an active pu**y in so long he strained his heart. Don't stay away so long the next time. Never "loose touch" with the pu**y and it will nevr loose touch with you.

    I'd better go retch. I will not apologize for thinking that lapdances are filthy and disgusting. I do like burlesque though- ah the epitome of both class and sensuality.

    The problem isn't that he was too old, but that he obviously had heart problems. And if he had "a few" lap dances ... Maybe he should have stopped at 1.
  • robbt1 2012/05/18 17:45:06
