    just cos you live in a warm house with loving parents doesnt give you the right to judge people.

    There are, of course, lots of jobs that don't do anything for the economy. Lawyers, for example. That is irrelevant.

    What does it do for the country? Makes lots of sad lonely men temprorarily happy. Are you going to begrudge them that pleasure? It may or may not be pathetic, but its harmless. They deserve their thrills as much as you or I.

    amen to your post.

    but if we say compare a lapdancer to a lawyer.... a lawyer is far more respectable in any case.

    i think the best word to describe these sorts of people would be "shallow"?

    but maybe they can't become a lawyer.

    laywer: spend years and lots of money on education, read lots of books.

    lapdancer: dance.

    i know what i'd rather be. i would absolutely love to be a male stripper, mainly because the ladies would be all over you. damn better money than working in [supermarket] also...

    i so would...my boyfriend would either really hate it or really love it... but i'm terrified someone i know would see me. i don't have the body right now (thank you exam stress) but i will have soon, and without sounding arrogant, i have the looks. i'd probably wear the same as when i go to a normal club anyway :rolleyes:

    There must be some sort of joke there concerning "doubles", dancers, and being "not too bad", but I'll be damned if I find it tonight.

    i was reading an article in a tabloid today and it made me reflect a bit on society..... it was about a lapdancer earning £500 PER night(on a good night) but JESUS what does the lapdancer do for the economy? NOTHING. What does it do for the country? NOTHING What does it do for guys? MAKES them horny.... what does it do for her? MAKEs her a ......
    does anyone really have respect for people such as lapdancers, people like abi tittmuss? rebecca loos?? they shouldn't even be getting paid what they do IMO. kids shouldn't be asking for their autographs.
    newsreaders, actors, footballers all have skills.... but not people like ABI TITMUS.
    perhaps i'm being a bit judgemental and stereotypical, but blimey....
    firstly, what kid asks a lap dancer for an autograph? Is it the new trend or something?

    In a commodity based society, people are paid for what they can offer. This works with lap dancers in exactly the same way it does for newsreaders, footballers, actors or any other career you'd care to mention.
    Lap dancers offer a 'service', they are paid. People are willing to pay.
    For this, they have to have a base "skill" - good looks and a good body. If not, they'll earn little or be out on their ear. Their career will also be rather short.
    This is the same principle for everything else.

    Just because your acute moral compass disagrees with this doesn't mean the system should change. Abi Titmuss was a nurse, she worked harder than most people and she did a lot of good. She has been presented with an opportunity to make a fortune exploiting morons who want to slaver over her for a few months (and it won't be much more - these things are flavour of the month) by playing the tabloid press. If she can make enough money to live on, good luck to her.

    I suppose it's fine for a part time job, whilst working on a qualification to move onto professional work.

    However, this is not the case with all lapdancers. I was speaking to one of my mate's girlfriends. She failed pretty much everything in school (but labelled herself as a genius with ADD... more like a slapper with no brain) and now she's taking a dance course in college. When she's 18 in September, she's going to attempt to become a lapdancer. And, whilst it can be a very high paying job - she won't be employable after about 12 years. Sleazy buggers want the young 'uns on the poles. And when the girl's thirty, she'll probably have nothing saved up, she'll have no skills suitable for other jobs, a rotten CV, and she's probably going to end up in an absolutely terrible job or on the dole. And that's certainly not too great for the economy.

    There is and will always be demand for lawyers with good degrees, on the other hand, and I'm pretty sure that a barrister or high up solicitor earning a 6 figure salary would have a more positive impact on the economy than a lapdancer.
