Missouri lawmakers approve THE MOST STRICT regulations for sexually oriented businesses.

Legislation sent to the governor Thursday night bans nudity, alcohol and anyone under age 18 at adult clubs, adult video stores and other sexual businesses. It also forces all adult businesses in the state to close at midnight and requires all dancers to remain 6ft. away from customers at all times in all directions or risk a first degree misdemeanor punishable by six months in jail and/or a $1000 fine. The House passed the bill 118-28. The Senate followed with a 27-4 vote.

The reigning ED’s “Overall Club of the Year,” The Men’s Club of Charlotte, is certainly doing the award proud.  A Creative Loafing article in January 2010 highlighted the club’s “creative ideas” in raising $3,000 for the Humane Society of Charlotte.  These ideas consisted of games at The Dog House, a popular hangout for fans of the Carolina Panthers before home games.  

Goat shatters front doors

Some people think goats are cute. ... and others think they’re ornery little cusses that kick, bite, butt and typically possess a general disdain for anything that they can’t fully digest. Take, for example, the little four-legged, furry bastard that decided to take out his frustration on the front doors of the Lynx Gentlemen’s Club in Coachella, California.

Man “hangs out”

Last month, the Seattle Police Department was dispatched to local hotspot The Lusty Lady on an alleged burglary call, as a man was reportedly caught in the club’s ceiling crawl space. (Uh-huh. Just like Bruce Willis in Die Hard.)  Once the authorities arrived, they found the subject in question, a 27-year-old male, stuck in the confined area.  

Friendly competition

club-onyxFriendly competition between clubs is okay—arson is not
For any industry to thrive, competition is a necessity. When it’s considered friendly, businesses generally prosper. When it’s considered fierce, weaker businesses may be the first to find failure.  But when it’s considered illegal, then someone is going to jail.

New Hustler Club in Michigan creates...

economic stimulus
lincolnparkhustlerDespite the best efforts of local religious zealots and some city officials, Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club opened its doors just in time for Christmas in Lincoln Park, Michigan. According to local media, once the club finally went public on December 8, 2009, the hundreds of patrons who stopped in during the seven-hour grand opening showed those on both sides of the argument that the business is a viable addition to a city that has struggled for years with luring new development to town.
Lisa-AnnCelebrities really do love their strippers, don’t they?
In case you haven’t caught an episode of TMZ lately that didn’t focus entirely on Tiger Woods, actor Josh Duhamel has been busted boom boom pow’ing an Atlanta entertainer from the Tattletales club.
Duhamel’s claim to fame, besides harassing Megan Fox with his machine gun in the Transformers films, is being married to the Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie.  Duhamel, of course, denies the allegations. The amorous entertainer in question, Nicole Forrester, says she has the text messages and the polygraph reports to prove it. Of course she does.
fort-worth-welcomeRick’s Cabaret finds location to build club in Fort Worth
As anyone who’s owned a club or worked within the adult nightclub industry for any length of time knows, finding a location to build and open a brand new club is nearly impossible.  But as the Wall Street Journal reports, the Rick’s Cabaret International club chain thinks it has found the perfect location to build a new location in Fort Worth, Texas.
foxjokeFox News tries to link Fort Hood killer with strip club
Look, we get Fox News.  As in, it’s not journalism.  If one of Fox’s commentators wants to call Obama a socialist (*cough* Sean Hannity *cough*) or a racist (*cough* Glenn Beck *cough*) that’s fine.  It’s like ignoring crazy grandpa at the dinner table.  If they distort the coverage of pubic events for their own political agenda (like falsifying opinion poll figures or doctoring footage) we let it slide.
But this is going too far.


woman-pink-santaCanadian club’s “Strip-a-thon” nets $24 grand for charity
We’re not sure if this is an indication that charities in the Great White North are more receptive to donations from adult nightclubs than their counterparts are in the U.S., but the Christmas Hamper Society was more than happy to accept a $24,000 offering from the Caddyshack Showroom Pub in Maple Ridge (British Columbia), Canada.
