Dispatches - Lap Dancing - Tonight

Hi,

Watched it, and in all honesty, it was nothing more than a typical tabloid "expose" that boils down to nothing more than some of the women who work in these clubs, bend the rules, and some of them offer themselves up for "extra services", if they think they can get away with it.

The presenter/investigator of the show, must have been chosen for his retardedness - and I use that word in the literal sense, not the crude one! It had him asking what the girls meant by "extras"; "lesbian", and a few other fairly simple, and obvious terms! :rolleyes: It wouldn't surprise me, if this guy was actually some kind of evil spawned combo of John Beyer and Mary Whitehouse! :eek: He was a complete muppet!

In all honesty, this was a waste of one hour of my life! :mad: If you have recorded it, delete the recording, as it's useless and about as serious a documentary, as the average episode of Balamory is! :boring:

I thought it was comedy of the highest order

50 minutes in and he was still testing the "3 foot rule". Yes mate, I think we have established that one went out the window long ago :rolleyes:

:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: - bit upset at the low nipple count then? ;)

What exactly does one expect to see on a prime time "current affairs" show on Lap Dancing ... of course its going to be tabloidy! :rotfl:
A DM/Sun mix of voyeurism, titillation, moralising and sensationalism. The sort of thing Chris Morris has satirised in On The Hour, The Day Today and Brass Eye.

Pooch, did you know a bear sometimes craps in the woods? :D

I found it empty, boring and hollow! Nothing exciting to expose. It made me laugh when the worse aspect was a dancer 'touching a mans private parts'.....:eek::D

50 minutes in and he was still testing the "3 foot rule". Yes mate, I think we have established that one went out the window long ago :rolleyes:

Well, for some men like me, the 3 foot rule is something else..... It's more of a health and safety tripping hazard.....:rolleyes::smashin:

Hi Krish,

Well, I had hoped that this being "Dispatches", it might actually not be tabloidy at all, and be a genuinely intelligent documentary, not unlike the BBC "Whistleblower" series. :lesson: Clearly, I was proven wrong. :( Having not seen a "Dispatches" show in years, is this one of those series that has gone downhill, or is just no longer cutting-the-mustard, so to speak?! :confused:

As for the low nipple count, I wasn't disappointed, but then I wasn't watching this show for that reason! (If that's what I wanted, I could easily switched over to one of the Sky EPG 900 channels instead, for a nightly tit-fest!)

The amount of "secret footage" that was repeated at the beginning of each part of the show, was ridiculously high, and showed that the documentary was as salacious as the average copy of the Daily Sport paper. :eek:

Still, it's nice to see another nail in the coffin of C4. :clap:

I asuume that he was asking the "girls" to explain so they could incriminate themselves.

The branch of Secrets is opposite my office !!

It certainly wasn't up to the standard of Dispatches, more a MacIntyre show !

Soundstory,

Oh, I'm sure that was exactly the reason he was asking them for more information. Sadly, he did it with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. He may as well have gone in, and said "I'm an undercover TV reported trying to prove that prostitution is going on in your establishment, and so would you care to confirm or deny this, whilst I film you with my pinhole camera, and this rather large "briefcase" that I have with me, which also has a camer and microphone in it?"! :rotfl: :rolleyes: The guy was just incompetent at his job... that of being "undercover"!

Still, at least Channel 4 are covering worthwhile, non-sensationalist subjects that really affect people, on a daily basis. :D

As a dancer, I feel I have more insight and more of a right to comment on this programme than somebody who has no realistic knowledge of the internal workings, routines and operations of a strip club, which unfortunately, the people salaciously interviewed failed to possess.
Dumpy women with an extended vocabulary and little knowledge of the real world were preaching about places it was clear they had never even set foot inside of. Perhaps if they knew that I personally can make hundreds in a night empowering myself, having a drink with some friends and not performing extras, they would develop a different opinion. Either that, or they need to get laid.
It sickened me that they had clearly selected girls who would go that extra step, and were also incoherent and a pretty bad example of evolution. Most of my friends at work are at college/uni. Pretty much all the girls have other jobs too.
At one point, a woman referred to what goes on in lap dancing clubs, by saying she knew they wouldn't be talking about current affairs. So ****ing what? That is not our job, as much as it's not hers to get her tits out. Personally, I use the fact that I am not monosyllabic as a pulling factor when approaching men for dances.
Biased, sensational and ridiculous, avoiding the fact that its a fair exchange between consenting adults and preached by morons, this programme was a total joke.
I have integrity in what I do, but I would be lying if this programme hasn't made me worried that people will presume I'm a whore.

Hi Dancer1987,

You've certainly made a unique entrance into our little AV gang here. :) But, the points you make are all true, and very valid, and I have to say, I agree with you. The way women are portrayed on TV documentaries like this, are not the average sex-worker! In fact, most sex-workers, are just normal everyday women, who are simply trying to make the best of a bad situation, and have chosen to work in this industry.

Personally-speaking, I don't believe that prositution of any kind is inherently wrong or evil, providing that what takes place between the prostitute and their client is consensual. There are always going to be people (predominantly men) who will want to pay for adult entertainments, be that going to a porn cinema, strip clubs, hiring escorts and/or lapdancing venues. The law, and politicians, need to accept that whether or not they agree with it, it's more sensible to have that kind of facility legal and in the open, than hidden underground where there is no control, and the scenario is ripe for exploitation. That's why I'd rather have brothels legalised, than the current hypocritical situation where brothels are run out in the open, but are technically breaking the law, and where "paying for sex" is illegal, but "offering sex for money" isn't!

It matters not one jot to me, if a women (or a man, for that matter) choses to work in the sex industry. As long as they've chosen to do it voluntarily, and aren't being coerced or forced into doing stuff they don't want to do, it is down to that individual person to decide if she's comfortable working in that way. And, providing it is being down, knowing all the facts of what the industry may be like/can be like, then it should be an individual choice. :lesson:

In all honesty, if I had the looks/physique to work as an escort, escorting women, I'd happily do it. As I don't have those assets, I'm stuck doing regular jobs, with crappy hours, and mediocre pay!

Okay, well, I hope we see you stick around in the Forums, as it would be nice to have another lady join our ever-expanding AV Forums membership. :) Welcome to the group! :thumbsup:

Now....my say. I have been a dancer for 2 and a half years now and the footage i saw was nothing out the norm. The two girls who offered the guy for them to come back to his hotel for £300, were lying. I could tell, as i have dont this before. Got him all intrested then said he has to pay first. I did this to a guy and just never went, which is dangerous yes but on a bad night..you'l say it!
The footage from the club where the girl asked the guy to go in the back for £250 and 'durex', this was prositution, all over. this club wasnt even registered for dancing so dosnt mind offering extras as theres no licence to loose!
Straddling etc is all part of the private dance, its a tease but not the real thing, how can it be compered to sex, it is a lap dance << dancing on a lap...so wheres the big fuss. I work in stourbridge, where the footage was nothing but advertisment!
Nothing shocked me, there are girls who do extras, im sure they could have found worser evidence amongst the thousands of clubs in england!
Out of 100 dancers, 3 of them give extras, so why should we all be labelled with a 'hoe' tag? I have had to force guys off, and cope with very demading customers, even offered large amounts of money for sexual favours which yes, its tempting when theres £1000 waved infront of you, but we dont all do it and i wrote this to confirm that from a experienced dancers point of view!
and lads..come to heaven-stourbridge!:thumbsup:

Pooch

Oh my. I would never advertise the fact I am an 'experienced dancer'. I would also never say words to the effect of 'come to my club, I'll cheat you out of some money'.Clever girl.
As far as girls doing extras, the club can't be blamed if it is actually run properly, and isn't a brothel in disguise. In any work environment, you get dishonesty, whether it be stealing or lying, whatever, girls doing extras is just a contorted version of that.

Aaaaanyway. I totally agree with the legalising prostitution thing, people need to accept but not necessarily agree with facts.

I actually thought I'd get a slating for my post, but it's nice to see there are some open minded people who don't take things at face value out there.
Cheers.
