One of my friends (Reb Livingston) has an interesting notion about why men go to strip clubs. So, I asked some people at AWP. Here are some answers:
1)--To give away singles.
--To stimulate the economy.
--Because it's there.
--To fill up the pool.
(Frank DePoole, Barn Owl Review)
(Matthias Svalina, wit)
3)--To fill my empty hole with sadness
--Lather (Loufa ?)
(somewhat coy QAE representatives)
--to hand out buttons
(Ben Engle of Front Porch.)
6)--Because it feels good
--Because they like nudity
--Because it's on the way home
(Bill "The Hawk" of Intell Security. Bill's the guy who checks badges at the entrance to the bookfair. Bill says he was a writer but he quit because, he says,
"I like to eat"
--They're great places to score Meth
--A deep craving for watery overpriced drinks
(Hugh Behm-Steinberg, Eleven Eleven, etc)
8)--To give their money away
--because they've got nothing
--to droop over their beers
(a West Conn. State University Spokeswoman)
9)--lack of sexual experience
--the dirt and the lighting
--in hopes of finding true love
(Noah Falck, elementary school teacher)
10)--they're doing it ironically
--they want to date strippers
(Joseph Hall, the angry reviewer, particle physicist)
--it's by the airport
--because it's hard to pay for sex there
(Dan, a friend of Chris)
and,... Reb Livingston says (loud and often) that men like to go to strip clubs so "they can take it up the ass."
