Male strippers on the job...

Male strippers on the job... | Escorts | Scoop.it

His story reads like a script from a movie: Small town boy, saddled with debt, turns to stripping to make extra cash while he figures out what he wants to do with his life. He becomes good at shedding his clothes for men and women, moves to the big city, and his career as a stripper takes off.

 

But for this 31-year-old Logan Square resident, who goes by the stage name "Blake," the limelight hasn't always been kind. His first time on stage, in 2004, he made $11.

 

"Seven dollars of it was from a guy. It was awful. I didn't know what I was doing," said Blake, who asked for his name to be withheld because he recently accepted a part-time job coaching a children's football team. "I was on stage going, 'What do I do next? Don't be boring. Do something.'"

 

Eight years later, Blake has perfected his moves and his look—which includes graying hair and an unshaven chest—though he admits he still gets nervous during performances.

 

The shy guy who avoided dancing when he was growing up in the Milwaukee area now gyrates for private bachelorette parties and on stage Saturdays for the all-male revue show SinZation at Circuit nightclub in Boystown.

 

"It is what it is. I wouldn't put it up there with doctor or astronaut," Blake, who is straight, said of his career choice, which earns him about $150 an hour on weekends. "I think there's a little bit 'This isn't what I would have chosen for myself.' "

 

Yet this may be male stripping's time to shine. Later this month, Channing Tatum will star in "Magic Mike," a Steven Soderbergh film reportedly about Tatum's previous career as a stripper.

 

And Tatum's not the only star taking (it) off: '80s heartthrob Joey Lawrence recently joined Chippendales in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Illinois legislation that would tax strip clubs has cast a spotlight on the profession as well.

 

In Chicago, there are about 50 male strippers who work the club circuit, said talent booker Jeffrey Binninger, who produces SinZation. The demand for male strippers in Chicago is smaller than that in larger cities like New York and L.A., and in Miami and Vegas, which are tourist destinations for bachelorette parties, Binninger said.

 

There are a few clubs in Chicago that regularly feature male strippers, including Atmosphere in Andersonville and Cocktail and the Lucky Horseshoe Lounge in Boystown.

 

"When we have the dancers, we do very well," said Charlie Brown, who owns Atmosphere, which has featured male dancers for five years and now spotlights them at least two times a week. "A number of the dancers have followers who call and check up or check the Web page. We have regulars who will not come in if one of their dancers doesn't come in a certain night."

 

For Blake, who has danced at Atmosphere, typically in costume, stripping was supposed to be a temporary fix.

 

He was working as a bouncer for a Milwaukee-area gentlemen's club and then became a different kind of body man—serving as the body for body shots. He eventually transitioned into stripping because it made financial sense.

 

"I thought, 'I'm not going to be one of those frou frou guys prancing around.' But $8.25 an hour wasn't really cutting it," he said. "So really it was just hearing the dollar amounts and how it could help me catch up with life. That kind of did it for me."

 

He started out visiting small clubs in Iowa and Indiana by bus with other strippers. (It was during one of these trips that one of his friends suggested "Blake" as his stage name, which he adopted because he didn't hate it.)

 

He moved to Chicago shortly thereafter and stripping, once a quick solution, became his career. He said that at one point he was dancing at 10 different clubs in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas.

 

"I had resolved I was going to pay off these debts. And then when I did that I kind of had a change of heart," he said. "It's fun to do things you're good at. Connect with people. It's not just a sexual thing."

 

But, of course, there were complications. He had to tell his parents, who he said were surprised, though Mom may have had an inkling because she noticed how fast he was paying back the money owed her.

 

He didn't tell Dad, however, about stripping for men because he'd rather him not know —though Blake said he doesn't mind dancing for men.

 

He had to tell his friends. And he had to tell his significant others—but that was never too difficult since he tends to meet his love interests while stripping.

 

"There's some level of attraction and intrigue. There's something special about you," he said. "It's kind of, 'Hey can I try to convince you that this isn't all of me sometime?' " It's a line not unlike one Tatum's character says in a "Magic Mike" trailer.

 

Blake credits his success as a stripper to setting boundaries—a lesson he didn't learn early.

Drive-In 'Sex Boxes' Coming To Zurich

Drive-In 'Sex Boxes' Coming To Zurich | Escorts | Scoop.it
This ain't your mama's drive-in....

 

The city of Zurich, Switzerland is set to a build a series of drive-in "sex boxes" which, starting next August, will provide a discreet environment for prostitutes to meet clients.

 

The "boxes" are garage-like structures that are large enough for a car to be parked inside. According to the Telegraph, the site will facilitate meetings for around 30 prostitutes, and clients will use the drive-in slots on a first-come -- ahem -- first-served basis.

 

Prostitution is legal in Switzerland, but Zurich officials have struggled with controlling sex-trade related crime and violence.

"We can't get rid of prostitution, so have to learn how to control it," police spokesman Reto Casanova said in 2010, when the idea was first introduced.

 

The decision was also motivated by complaints of city-dwellers unhappy with seeing prostitutes walking the streets.

 

"We're sick to death of looking at it," one resident said, according to the Mail Online.

 

Michael Herzig, of Zurich's social welfare department, says that getting prostitutes off the streets will also be beneficial to the women involved in the world's oldest profession.

 

"The women will be better protected from attack, and it will also mean better business for them," he told Swiss Radio, as translated by the Telegraph. "With the women right by the sex boxes there is no 'travel time' so they can deal with more customers."

 

Women working in the boxes will be required to take out medical insurance and pay for a license fee, the Sun reports. Additionally, each night they work, they will need to insert five Swiss francs into a machine to "clock in."

 

The boxes have faced some local opposition.

 

Margrit Haller, representing Swiss People’s Party in Altstetten, told World Radio Switzerland in 2011 that, "The idea that women will be better protected and monitored is good, but I don’t really see it as an alternative that women either work the streets or work in the boxes.”

 

Nevertheless, voters gave a green light to the creation of the boxes in a national referendum last March. Installation was approved by the Zurich city council on Monday, the Local reports.

 

Drive-in sex boxes are already employed in several German cities.

Q+A-London Olympics: The sex-trafficking event that wasn't - TrustLaw

Q+A-London Olympics: The sex-trafficking event that wasn't - TrustLaw | Escorts | Scoop.it
Fears that the Olympic Games would create a surge in sex trafficking were unfounded - expert...

 

Media reports predicting that London would be overrun by women trafficked to Britain to service spectators with sex during the Olympics reinforced negative stereotypes and diminished the complexity of trafficking, an expert said.

 

Georgina Perry, who manages Open Doors, a service for sex workers in London, said fears the Olympic Games would create a surge in sex trafficking were unfounded. The hype around this issue also drove vulnerable sex workers from health care services out of fear they would be treated as criminals, putting them at risk, she added.

 

Although London's Met Police are investigating one case of trafficking for sexual exploitation linked to the Olympics, there was no rise in trafficking directly connected to the event, Laura Godman, a spokeswoman for the Met Police, said.

 

"It remains our duty and intent to prepare for any occasion which may instigate or facilitate trafficking," Godman told TrustLaw. "Trafficking for sexual exploitation - or any other purpose - is difficult to measure, not only because of the way in which victims are trafficked and exploited but because quite often the victims do not realise that they are being trafficked, or that the life they have been coerced into is not normal."

 

In October, Open Doors published a survey of 100 sex workers, which showed that 93 percent of them did not come to London specifically seeking Olympic trade and 58 percent of them reported having fewer customers during the Olympics.

 

In an interview with TrustLaw, Open Door's Perry talked about sex trafficking and the myth that sporting events causes it to increase, among other topics...

Zurich regulates sex industry

Zurich introduces a raft of measures next year to try to regulate the city’s sex industry which officials admit has got out of control. Brothels and sex workers will require permits and street prostitution is being moved to three designated areas to try to make it safer and more discreet. At a press conference in Zurich on Monday, city officials outlined their plans again and said the new booths or sex boxes to accommodate prostitutes and their customers will open in August.

 

“We want to regulate prostitution because until now it was the law of the jungle….” Michael Herzig works for the city’s social welfare department. “So it was the pimps who decided the prices for instance. We want to as much as possible the city to regulate prostitution, the city to define what we have in Zurich and what not but we are trying to go to a situation which is better for the prostitutes themselves, for their health and security and also for the population which lives in Zurich.

 

New laws on prostitution come into force in Zurich in January. While the legal age for prostitution in Switzerland as a whole remains 16 for now, sex workers in Zurich will have to be at least 18 years old. But the most noticeable difference will come in August when new sex boxes open in Altstetten outside the city centre and street prostitution will be forbidden along the Sihlquai embankment.

 

“The big difference is that until now prostitution is in a public space. Now we are going to change this, transfer it from the street, from a public to a private space to an old industrial area which belongs to the city, that give us the possibility to define the rules of prostitution in this space.”

 

In terms of numbers, far fewer prostitutes work the streets than in brothels and agencies but their problem has created a problem and an image problem which Zurich is keen to tackle. City Councillor Martin Waser is responsible for social issues.

 

“Conditions have become intolerable in recent years,” he says. “It’s very difficult for the prostitutes because they are unprotected but we also have big problems with pedestrians, particularly groups of men who harass the women and make a lot of noise and we can avoid all these problems in the approved space.”

 

Besides the drive in facilities at Altstetten, street prostitutes will be allowed to ply their trade in two other specific zones – centrally located Niederdorf, the city’s pedestrian nightlife area and at drive-by Brunau. Clients who meet street prostitutes in non-approved areas face fines of 450 francs.

 

The switchover is set to take place in August from one day to the next and city councillor Daniel Leupi, responsible for police issues is under no illusions.

 

“The big challenge will be to move the strip from the actual place at the Sihlquai to the Strichplatz we call it at one go with all the information to the sex workers. That will be a very difficult issue.”

 

It’s not only clients who will be paying for the new services. From January, brothels have to apply for licences. Criteria include fair working conditions, fair prices and a commitment to preventing violence. Basic cost 300 francs with additional inspection fees.

 

And street prostitutes will have to fork out 40 francs for their own licences subject to having a work permit, being registered with a health insurer and taking counselling sessions with the Flora Dora advisory service. In addition, every night that they ply their trade, they will need to buy a ticket from a machine at five francs a go.

Fetish Porn Company Kink.com Offering Sex Classes in San Francisco - With Porn Stars Providing Live Demos

Fetish Porn Company Kink.com Offering Sex Classes in San Francisco - With Porn Stars Providing Live Demos | Escorts | Scoop.it

A fetish pornography company in San Francisco is offering sex classes with live demonstrations imparted by porn stars.

 

Based in the city's famous Armoury building, the weekly workshops are being provided by pornography production company Kink.com, and designed to cover a plethora of sex topics.

 

"They [students] have to sit through a lecture before we get to the good stuff. We do techniques, physical response and have a question and answer period before moving on to the demonstrations," explained last week's oral sex professor, porn star Rain DeGrey.

 

"The workshop series helps us educate people who are interested in exploring their sexuality, but may not know where to start," Kink spokesman Mike Stabile told The Huffington Post.

 

"We bring in experts and create a safe space for people to learn, ask questions and talk about sex frankly and without judgment."

 

It is not the first initiative that Kink, currently the largest producer of fetish videos in the world, has cultivated to lure the general public into its transgressive world.

 

Earlier this year, Kink.com used deal-of-the-day website Groupon to offer tours of its headquarters, including a visit to its sets, where, "depending on the timing," lucky visitors could also "glimpse a live filming in progress."

 

Kink.com is also the subject of a documentary produced by Hollywood actor James Franco, who reportedly decided to shoot the movie after failing to shoot a sex tape with his girlfriend.

 

"I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. We watched it back and said, 'yeah, well, let's never watch that again," Franco told TBS. "Those people in pornos, they are great performers.

 

"There's this amazing facility in San Francisco. It's at this old armoury and they do everything in house; they build their props in house, so I'm making a documentary about that. It's an incredible place."

 

The documentary, named Kink, is to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Paying for sex: Women's groups call for EU-wide ban

Paying for sex: Women's groups call for EU-wide ban | Escorts | Scoop.it

Campaigners say prostitution now needs regulating on an international as well as a national level.

 

More than 200 women's rights groups are calling for laws to make paying for sex a crime across the European Union.

 

Campaigners presented key policy recommendations for legislation to MEPs in Brussels on Wednesday.

 

"Prostitution is a form of violence, an obstacle to gender equality and an open door for organised crime to develop," a campaign spokeswoman told the BBC.

 

But opponents say the move is likely to drive the prostitution industry further underground.

 

The European Women's Lobby (EWL), which leads the campaign, wants EU member states to implement six key policies, including the criminalisation of all forms of procuring, and the creation of effective exit programmes for sex workers.

 

"The most important thing to understand about prostitution is that imposing sexual intercourse with money is a form of violence that shouldn't be accepted," EWL spokeswoman Pierrette Pape told the BBC.

 

"If we understand that, we can then put comprehensive policies into place that will change mentalities and respect gender equality between women and men."

 

'No boundaries'


EWL cites Sweden as a successful example, saying that street prostitution had halved there since paying for sex was outlawed a decade ago.

 

In contrast, there has been no significant improvement of the conditions of sex workers in the Netherlands where the sector has been legalised, Ms Pape said.

 

She said the issue now needed regulating on an international level, beyond country-specific laws.

 

"It is a problem that knows no political and geographical boundaries," she said, adding that EU policies on human trafficking would not be effective unless they also addressed prostitution.

 

"There is a legal base in the treaties to address the transnational crime of the sexual exploitation of women and children."

 

So far 36 European MEPs are already supporting the proposal, Ms Pape said.

 

Critics, however, argue that criminalising prostitution also increases the risk of rape and violence.

 

The UK Network of Sex Work Projects (UNSWP) believes the move would have damaging consequences for prostitutes.

 

"It creates a legal and policy climate, in which sex workers are more stigmatised and socially excluded, and in which it is harder to offer [them] accessible support services," the organisation told the BBC.

"It erodes sex worker safety and rights. The council of Europe should reject such laws and [instead] support initiatives and legal changes, which improve the social status and safety of sex workers and allow criminal justice authorities to focus their limited resources on violent and other crimes committed against sex workers."

 

Many sex workers say the sector needs more transparency and better regulation, the BBC's Maddy Savage reports from Brussels.

 

In the Netherlands, Austria and Germany, prostitutes register their services in return for the same rights and responsibilities as people running other kinds of businesses.

 

The EU currently does not have the power to legislate on prostitution. But new laws designed to reduce human trafficking are set to come into force next year and EU officials told the BBC both issues are closely linked.

 

They are currently analysing different countries' approaches and are expected to report back on their findings in 2016.

Matthew West's curator insight, June 5, 2013 3:32 PM

I'm not sure I agree with the argument that "[p]rostitution is a for of violence [...]." It seems that the sex workers and customers enter into a consenting verbal contract -- the payment being the proof of consent. However, I understand that violence can happen during the "services," which I feel is undefendable and appalling.

I totally agree that making prostitution a crime will cause this trade to resort to underground coverage. This would be detrimental to the health to all those involved in the sex-trade as there would be no Health and Human Sevices to treat and contain sexually transmitted diseases.

I also feel it is worth taking into consideration that the sex workers are asking for more regulation of the trade and not prohibition -- this request should be taken into account and not dismissed.

New sex trade strategy proposed for single Scottish police force

New sex trade strategy proposed for single Scottish police force | Escorts | Scoop.it

A single strategy on prostitution has been drawn up for dealing with the sex trade under a single Scottish police force.

 

At the moment different parts of Scotland regulate prostitution in different ways.

 

The Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland has drawn up a new strategy ahead of the merger of Scotland's eight forces in April.

It includes minimising harm, disrupting organised crime and reducing demand.

 

Much of the debate around the sex trade has contrasted Edinburgh saunas - believed to be tolerated as part of a "pragmatic" approach by authorities - with an approach in Glasgow which is closer to zero tolerance.

 

However, in four month's time Scotland's eight police forces will become one, prompting the new strategy from an Acpos working group.

 

It has a number of aims, including to "minimise the levels and impact of prostitution through reducing or eliminating the harm to sex workers".

 

The proposals also say "high level objectives" have been set for the working group to meet.

 

There will still be some regional variations, but Scotpep - a charity based in Edinburgh which advocates on behalf of sex workers - said it was concerned that Glasgow's zero tolerance approach would be forced on the rest of the country.

 

Scotpep's George Lewis said: "That does concern us, at the moment the largest police force in Scotland has a zero tolerance approach to sex work, and if it's that view that's allowed to prevail we'd be very, very worried about it being extended to the rest of Scotland.

 

"Particularly when we feel that the police force here in Lothian and Borders has a pragmatic and progressive approach that has given us lots of benefits and advantages."

 

In Scotland, selling sex is legal between two consenting adults - as long as it does not involve selling sex from the street or in a brothel.

Five years ago, buying sex from street prostitutes, or kerb-crawling, became illegal so clients of street prostitutes now face arrest too.

 

In Edinburgh, the city council licenses saunas which are commonly thought to allow prostitution on their premises, this differentiates Edinburgh from the rest of the country.

 

A council spokesperson said: "Any allegation of criminal activity would be a matter for the police to investigate and report to the council."

 

But the law is also under scrutiny at the Scottish Parliament. A proposed bill is currently out to consultation and the MSP behind it, Rhoda Grant, wants the purchaser of sex to be criminalised.

 

Until now, the prostitutes have been criminalised more than their clients. The number of women convicted last year under prostitution-related legislation was 117.

 

A total of 83 men were convicted either for soliciting, kerb crawling or other related offences.

How sex work has replaced a bar job for some students who struggle to pay bills

Undergraduates have traditionally pulled pints or waited tables to pay their way through university, but a growing body of research suggests that a significant number are now turning to sex work to make ends meet.

 

The rise in fees which will see some students graduate with projected debts of up to £53,000 at the end of their course is being blamed for persuading young women and men to take up pole dancing, escort work or even prostitution. Experts say that university welfare officers are largely ignorant of the growing phenomenon and poorly equipped to deal with issues arising from young people’s involvement.

 

Research by Dr Ron Roberts, of the University of Kingston, published in 2010 suggested that one in four students know someone who had worked in the sex industry to fund their studies – up from three per cent in 1990. Dr Roberts found 16 per cent would consider working in the industry while more than one in 10 were open to the idea of being an escort.

 

Research by Teela Sanders and Kate Hardy, of the University of Leeds, found that a quarter of lap dancers had a degree whilst a third of the women they interviewed were using the job to fund new forms of training.

 

Much of the expansion over the decade was to do with the proliferation of lap dancing clubs. But the internet also threw up a new range of opportunities for anonymous sex work.

 

But although the idea of the middle-class sex worker has gained media currency – not least through the highly publicised exploits of Belle de Jour, otherwise known as Dr Brooke Magnanti, a 34-year-old research scientist – the reality can be very different.

 

In the Leeds study, women reported physical and verbal harassment from customers as they were forced to work in dangerous conditions.

Dr Tracey Sagar, of Swansea University, who is running a three-year project to provide advice and support to student sex workers in Wales, said the authorities were still waking up to the shift in student work patterns.

 

“Universities are not dealing with this issue. It is not on the radar of welfare or support organisations within education,” she said. The SponsorA Scholar.co.uk site appears to cater to those seeking the so-called “girlfriend” experience where sex can be accompanied by an emotional intimacy. Ms Sagar said that many sex sites flagged up a student’s educational status which was often desirable to potential clients.

 

SponsorAScholar.co.uk uses a variety of images of women and glowing testimonials claiming to come from satisfied customers which it is feared could attract young women struggling financially.

 

The website claims that most of the sponsors are “men between the ages of 28 and 50 who run their own successful business and want to have discreet adventures with a student whilst helping them fund their studies through a scholarship”. It even suggests the amount is tax deductible.

 

However, opponents say that the unequal power relationship between sex worker and client leaves particularly women open to sexual exploitation whilst safety groups have warned women against going off with people they do not know.

A Regressive Move Which Would Further Stigmatise and Endanger Sex Workers

Last week Rhoda Grant MSP and Lord Morrow were invited to speak about their respective proposals to criminalise the purchase of sex in Scotland and Northern Ireland at an event in the House of Commons tellingly entitled 'Prostitution and Sexual Exploitation: Tackling Demand in the UK'.

 

These proposals represent a radical change to the criminal law in this area and, if passed, would have severe consequences for sex workers. They are not supported by public opinion, academic evidence, sex workers themselves or by the majority of those delivering front-line support to sex workers...

Female Porn Stars Are Healthier And Happier Than The Average Woman [Study]

Female Porn Stars Are Healthier And Happier Than The Average Woman [Study] | Escorts | Scoop.it

Female porn stars are healthier and happier than other women, according to a new study. The Journal of Sex Research discovered than women working in the adult entertainment field tend to have a better body image, increased self-esteem, and higher energy levels than their non-sex worker peers.

 

Researchers compared 177 porn stars with a similar sampling of women employed in less erotic careers, according to Now.MSN.com. If the Journal of Sex Research study is accurate, the findings shatter some commonly held stereotypes about adult film actresses.

 

The study reportedly discovered that female porn actresses were not more likely to have been sexually abused as children than the average American woman. Feminist commentator Dawn Foster warns that the Journal of Sex Research study should not be used as an excuse to “gloss over” the “exploitative aspects” of the porn industry.

 

An excerpt from the study reads:

 

“Stereotypes of those involved in adult entertainment have been used to support or condemn the industry and to justify political views on pornography, although the actual characteristics of actresses are unknown because no study on this group of women has been conducted. Some descriptions of actresses in pornography have included attributes such as drug addiction, homelessness, poverty, desperation, and being victims of sexual abuse.”

 

Merriam-Webster defines feminism as an organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests. Instead of porn stars being considered the objects of exploitation, perhaps they should be noted among the ultimate feminists. The adult women who work in the erotic entertainment industry willingly enter a career which pays them a lot of money for doing a task. Since female porn stars are often paid more than their male counterparts, an equal pay argument could be for men in the industry.

♦ Pour autant que leurs choix sont librement assumés, les actrices porno et plus généralement les travailleuses du sexe ne seraient-elles pas les ultimes féministes?

Sex worker & mother: 'Yes, I AM empowered by my job.'

Sex worker & mother: 'Yes, I AM empowered by my job.' | Escorts | Scoop.it
  by EVA SCHLESS

 

I have a problem. The problem is I am angry. Really really angry and I’m trying to write. I don’t like writing when I’m angry because I find a lot of points get missed and lost and I get a bit shouty and sweary which, in turn, makes me look like a petulant child who hasn’t got her own way.

 

My anger started on Saturday night when a friend wrote a Facebook status. The status asked that if sex work was as empowering as some sex workers “claim” it is, would they then encourage their daughters to enter the profession? And then she went on to say no, of course they wouldn’t because really it’s a degrading and exploitative job and no-one should ever feel proud or ‘empowered’ because of it.

 

She then bandied around some ‘statistics’ that the majority of girls who work get into it, do so solely because of drug habits and as a last resort. because of desperation. She claimed that the sex workers who advocate what they do as a positive thing are just kidding themselves because everybody knows there’s nothing empowering or positive about sex work…

 

She says this knowing full well what I do. That I am a sex worker. That I am also a mother to a daughter. And that my world, my job, my career – has been built of the positivity of sex work.

 

My friend was wrong. And this is why:

 

When it comes to my daughter and what I will ‘encourage’ her to do, it actually has nothing to do with a specific job or title and has everything to do with giving her the tools to make choices and decisions on her own.

 

I will ‘encourage’ her to be a good and decent person. To treat others with respect and to not judge anyone by how they look, where they are from, who they love or what they do for a living. I will ‘encourage’ her to make her own well-informed choices and live her life in a way that makes her happy, satisfied, fulfilled and confident. Whether that future job is as a surgeon or a sex worker is entirely her choice and, if I do my job as a parent properly, will be the right choice for her.

I cannot stand the uninformed and ignorant rant that sex work is not empowering or a real ‘choice’....
