Precisely how should we relate to strippers - the women who will strip down to their masbcara and provide desploogination services to strangers for a fee? This is a question that has bedeviled the world’s greatest minds. Plato, Aristotle, Buddha, St. Thomas Aquinas, Leibniz, Hume, Locke, Groucho and Woody Allen have all attempted to set forth how we should relate to these women.
The answer to this question remains elusive.
It’s easy for some to denigrate strippers as soul-less, unscrupulous, STD-laden sluts who will do damn near anything for a few bucks. Yet, so many of us today are all too willing to hop in our cars and drive and make the pilgrimage through miles and miles of traffic-choked freeways for the privilege of spending an hour (and hundreds of dollars) with these women. Despite their filthy reputations (or perhaps because of them), we place tremendous value in these women of dubious moral fiber and questionable personal hygiene habits.
Strippers come in a wide variety of different sizes, shapes, colors and flavors. Some are crack-heads who desplooginate strangers in order to finance their next nose-full. Some are cashed-strapped single moms desperately trying to put meat on the table for their kids. Some claim to be working as strippers as a means of funding their pursuit of a PhD in nuclear physics. While such claims are dubious, I have met strippers who could intelligently discuss the implications of “Waiting for Godot” or who could explain the significance of chirality in organic chemiistry.
You will occasionally meet a stripper who claims she desplooginates strangers only because she is a raging nymphomaniac. I’ve never met a stripper making such a claim who I regarded as believable. If you ever meet one who convinces you that she spends her day desplooginating men because she is a nymphomaniac, you should probably marry her.
Regardless of their justification for their choice of profession, I submit that all strippers are real, flesh and blood humans deserving of a modicum of respect and civility at least until they prove otherwise.
