appropos of nothing
Apparently this is old news to some, but male stripping is somewhat unsettlingly aggressive. I went to a strip show last night for, I assure you, culturally appropriate reasons, and to be honest, it was kind of like being trapped in some strange woman's elaborate gang rape fantasy. That is very much not what I want to happen when I call the police, or the fire department, or the U.S. Navy. At one point I tried to be game and help out a friend who was getting (again I assure you) a culturally appropriate lap dance, and for my troubles I got a lap dance of my own "for helping her out." It honestly felt like I was being punished for doing something nice. Which is supposed to be hot? I guess?
