They would pay the women $3,000 to strip naked and serve them beer at their house while they watched mixed martial arts fights on television. Ms. Knapp, 22, declined, but the men kept raising the offer, reaching $7,000.

“I said I make more money doing my job than degrading myself to do that,” said Ms. Knapp, a tattoo artist with dark streaks in her light brown hair, a bird tattoo on her chest and piercings above her lip and left cheekbone.

OK. So that establishes she's above Lady Astor (absent further escalations in the offer, that is).


Lady Astor and negotiator

LOL I can understand your concern,and you notice I did not say Las Vegas or Reno, and I understand your reference to the cow counties.

But if you think prostitution is not in Las Vegas and Reno you and I both know better.It is simply called escorts and a bit more expensive.

Yup listed in the Yellow Pages.

ND ping

In the mining/pipeline boom days of Alaska, the women would say:

“The odds are good, but the goods are odd.”

I’m sure after publishing this story this little town will be overflowing with over-ripe New York chicks looking for love.

They won't last--It is winter here.

“Dang, here I always heard that was Wyoming....”

Oddly enough, that’s where I hope to retire to. :)

Sounds like rural Texas

Hard to say right now, but they could have been from there.

Local boys know that if she will, you don't want her, and they know enough young ladies from high school, they aren't likely to be offering thousands for someone to strip at a bar.

Figure Williston has doubled in size in three years or so, (the majority moving in men working in the oil patch) and chances are good the guys weren't from Williston, or even North Dakota.

I wasn’t saying it was true. Wyoming is OK if you don’t mind Artic cold weather and horizontal snow storms.

Worked in Wyoming several times, it has some rugged beauty, even outside of Yellow Stone.

Sounds like rural Texas Or so folks in Colorado ski towns always joked

Yeah, and the bumper stickers saying, "if God meant Texans to ski, He would have given them snow."

I put a handmade bumper sticker on my car saying, "if God meant Coloradans to ski, he would have given them money."

Of course, now, Texans are a Godsend, and Californians are the new pariahs.

Scarcity can make even an inferior product attractive in certain markets.

From that picture? At best a “last call” 7. Unless she’s GTG from the neck down.

Okay, she's a 7 in Washington, D.C., a 5 in New York City, but in Williston, North Dakota? Why, she's a 10!

5 points for breathing.
5 points for being at least cosmetically female.

Two guys on a dance floor. Advertising? Brokeback Dakota?

Sounds like a business opportunity for someone to bring his “pretend wife” and introduce her around.
