My own personal opinion os that sexuality is special, and should be shared with only those you choose to share it with. When you are paid to strip or whatever, then you no longer are in control of that, and you end up "sharing" it with whomever happens to wander into the building. It is this loss of control over such an intimate part of our being that I find potentially harmful over some period of time (and there's literature to this effect), especially for people who tend to have less control in general in their lives. I know other people have other beliefs, and that's fine. I'm simply sharing mine here.

several points here:

1) Well, most strippers will argue with your claim that they aren't in control. They'd tell you that they are choosing to be up on stage and that they feel more in control when they're doing it than any other time. I'm not saying you aren't right (or wrong). I'm just saying that the flaw is you are applying your value system to someone else. That's why I likened it to the abortion issue.

2) Strippers were sort of a divergence from the prime issue, which was Hooters, which I would argue is a far cry from stripping. That's why I was saying I think its unfair of you to judge it without ever having been there.

3) As for sexuality being private, I find that interesting because you don't seem to really feel that way about everything else. Let's grant for a moment that Hooters and strip joints are sexual (a concession I'm not willing to make overall, but will for the sake of argument). How come that's the single thing that needs to be protected or not shared or whatever. An individual making the choice to not share any specific aspect of themselves with the public (I don't like wrestling fans to know details about my private life for instance) I grant, but why is sexuality the specific thing that you think should be private. Why is a theme restuarant that features the wreckage of the plane Buddy Holly died in or even just BB King's first guitar more appropriate than one that features girls in tight shirts?

For the record, I do respect your opinions... this is more my attempt to understand them.
