I am a recovered vegan. I gave up all animal by-products for four years in high school, so while I’ve since been converted back to the way of cheese, I do empathize with people who are disciplined enough to keep with it. Case in point, Johnny Diablo, who’s been a vegan for 23 years and opened a vegan restaurant in Portland, Oregon, called Casa Diablo. And, uh, it’s a strip club with a “From Dusk Til Dawn” theme. “Please do not wear fur, feathers, silk, wool, or leather on stage. Thank you, the Animals,” reads a sign in the dressing room.

Boing Boing points us to a Metro Times story on Jay Thunderbolt, a six-foot-five, 45-year-old Detroit resident who operates a strip club out of his house. Thunderbolt was left facially disfigured after he was shot in the head by a stranger when he was 11. For much of his life, he worked as a bodyguard — for a “dirty cop” and an adult theater owner. Eventually, he settled on running a strip club out of whatever private residence he was occupying. The business is open 24 hours a day, and customers can pick dancers from a photo album filled with Polaroids. “It’s 10 dollars a dance with the g-string on, 20 dollars with the g-string off,” according to house rules, and the proprietor takes 10 percent. What happens if the cops show up? The CEO of Thunderbolt Entertainment explains what he tells the girls: “Somebody show them some boobs, press them up against the window and say thank you for being a cop.” [Metro Times via Boing Boing] Keep reading »
Iceland has passed a law to shut down all strip clubs, making it illegal for any business to profit from the nudity of its employees.
Well, duh. It’s cold up there.
Actually, no: politician Kolbrun Halldorsdottir, who first proposed the law, said on Wednesday, “It is not acceptable that women, or people in general, are a product to be sold.” Iceland began hammering that point home last year when it passed a law effectively banning prostitution by criminalizing the purchase of sex; the strip club law is simply the next step.

In kinda the sweetest gesture ever, in a backwards sort of way, Matt Damon reportedly brought a posse to the New York Hustler Club, including his wife, Luciana Bozán Barroso. Instead of getting a lap dance from an actual stripper, Matt was perfectly content getting down with the mother of his children. A witness said, “He bought dances for his friends. His wife was dancing for him. The club normally doesn’t allow civilians to dance, but they made an exception for him.” [NY Post]
Since for some reason, men are obligated to go to strip clubs to assert their manly virility, it’s nice to hear that there are men out there who realize their wives are sexual beings and find them more compelling than random women in g-strings. These other celebrities weren’t so charming on their strip club jaunts. Keep reading »
