Welsh to ban strippers in limousines
Reuters ^ | August 17, 2004

Posted on 08/17/2004 10:11:22 AM PDT by NCjim

Strippers and pole dancers should be banned from performing in stretch limousines, according to a British report.

Councillors from the mountainous Welsh county of Gwynedd said many limousine hire companies were providing the erotic dancers as entertainment for clients, but in-car striptease was an "inappropriate" activity.

"Lately, stretch limousines have been used more and more," said the report, released on Tuesday.

"Some operators are providing entertainment to clients within the vehicle which may involve inappropriate activities such as lap dancing, giving rise to concerns about indecency."

The new proposals recommend a blanket ban on striptease, lap dancing, pole dancing and "any other activity or performance of a like kind".

I've seen pictures of Navigator or H2 stretch limos outfitted with stripper poles. Pretty cool.

I'll be darned. But don't they have tinted windows? So what's the "indecency" problem?

I expected the article to say limo drivers were running off the road because they were watching the rear view!

What about seat belt laws?

I would think OSHA would also require helmet, goggles, safety glasses and steel toed boots.

(hmmmm That could get interestng)

it's easier to have sex in a limo? I'm sure that's what they mean, as opposed to just looking in a regular joint.

Oh, I see ... but don't the anti-zoning zealots insist that "adult entertainment" has nothing to do with prostitution?

I'm sure these authorities just have dirty minds, and there's really nothing going on in those limos but folk dancing. (And how could they tell, if they've got tinted windows?)

My own theory is that it isn't the politicians who want these "blue laws" passed- it's their wives.

Well, if you want to tie down the dancer, I'm sure she'll let you do so if you pay extra.

The concern might be that it's easier to cross the line between stripping and prostitution in the privacy of a limo than in a strip club.

That's probably why lap dances are illegal in DC strip clubs.

So much for hiring a stripper to come into someone's HOUSE for a bachelor party.

Strippers who are willing to do private parties like that tend to be the ones who are willing to have sex for money.

Of course, whether that should be against the law is a reasonable question. I have no problems with legalizing prostitution.

Sex is the only thing I can think of that is legal to give away for free, but illegal to charge money for.
