Is stripping a milder form of prostitution?

I tend to think that intentionally causing sexual arousal is a sex act. 

I understand the nuances of stripping differ greatly from full fledged prostitution but I have seen it argued so I was wondering what you think.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Flirting is a form of sexual arousal and that's not prostitution. That's a natural act to attract a mate. So I'd have to say No, stripping is not a milder form of prostitution. Plus one is legal and one is not. Stripping is entertainment. Prostitution is normally just a sexual act. If anyone wants entertainment from a prostitute I'm sure that would cost even more.

Dallas, OKC, and the areas around an Army Post.

I'm not saying ALL strippers do this. Hell some work in really fancy clubs and wouldn't. But when I was doing it, there weren't many who didn't do that.

Besides, what damn difference does it make one way or another? You have those you know, I have those I knew. Your experience is different than mine.

Where the hell did you work? I've got 12 years of experience, having worked in Knoxville, Nashville, Myrtle Beach, and upstate New York. And of the hundreds of girls I've worked with, only a very small percentage takes on extra-curricular activities.

Quoting sherry132:

10 years as a stripper.

I'm pretty certain you have no idea what the hell you are talking about. What is your basis for this statement?

Quoting sherry132:

All I'm gonna say is...

very, very few strippers only strip.

stripping is a means to quietly and safely get customers. 

And that's all I'm saying.

It makes a difference when you lead people who don't have first hand experience to believe that dancing is something it is not. And maybe I am biased because I've always worked in the higher class clubs. But generally the girls who work at the clubs I've worked at don't. They wouldn't have to. Hell, I typically make more on a weekend than most of my customers make in a paycheck.

 See, that's what I don't understand. Why even work at the club? Escort out, make more money. They would make a lot more money. All that dancing at the club crap. Since they make money anyway, go for the big bucks. Sign up with several services. Never go to cheesy Holiday Inns, only upscalehotels with cameras. Escort service has the silent alarm thing going on for protection. Makes more sense to me from a money wise aspect, and hell they are doing it anyway. So what the guy paid for a pair of boobs. With the time she is wasting with him, she could be independent and buy her own boobs. If someone is doing mild S&M she better have a silent alarm set up. That is speciality and she could make a killing in a service. They could make a hell of a lot more money if they were smart.

Quoting trz031407:

My friend, a stripper, got her boobs paid for by a man she met at the club. Dancing there, but keeping this man happy by talking to him, listening to him. Then meeting him at a hotel. Being seen in public with him.

She in the end had given him a handjob but that was it. He paid for her breasts & her company.

He wasn't the only guy she met at work & cliented out of work. Her friend had the same deal going on, except she'd do anything they asked for the right price. She says you get them so worked up that by the time their hour is up it takes about 30 seconds of sex & they're happy & on their way because she just whipped & bondaged them in a way they are too embarrassed to ask their wives about. Bingo, bango, $$$$$

Then back to the club on their normal shift.


Quoting SEEKEROFSHELLS:

 Why would they dance around a pole for hours on end, snaring customers when they can sign up for an escort service outright? That doesn't make sense. Escorts get phone calls, meet a client, get the money and leave. The rest of the day or night is theirs unless they go out on more than one call.  Dancing around a pole all night sounds stupid to me to get customers. Pay the service a cut and be done.

The only time I worked in a higher class place was in Dallas. I also was a stripper for the last time 12 years ago. Most of the places I worked at were not high class, they were somewhere in the middle, and on some occasions, they were down right horrible. So yes, your experience is different from mine. I am NOT misleading anyone. I am speaking the truth as I have experienced it. Stop accusing me of trying to lie to everyone.

 It's not.  Flirting is intentional, but you don't see anyone comparing that to a sex act.  If you're not having sex for money, you aren't a prostitute.

I'm not accusing you of lying, I'm accusing you of being wrong. Your first post said that most dancers are also prostitutes, and that dancing is simply a means to find clients for sex. This is incorrect. I'm sorry you worked in less than savory clubs and had the experiences you did in viewing the activities of co-workers. But this is NOT the norm.

How come you can have experiences in the "savory clubs" and that has to be what the norm is, but I can't have experiences are have what I consider the norm?

Never mind. Whatever, you win. I'm done talking to you. Have a great life.

It is not her fault that other men get turned on by people dancing naked. I do not think that it is a form of prostitution.

Because I have friends that work at some of the more wild clubs, but that's not the norm there. I have friends who work in South Carolina, Atlanta, Florida, Maryland, Alaska, etc, and it's not the norm there either. Because you are one of the only dancers I have ever encountered who seems to feel that it is. Because there is already a big enough stigma against the business as it is based on what actually does happen at the club. 

My issue is not with your experience, it is with you generalizing this experience to include a much bigger scope than what matches reality.
