New Providence Indoor Prostitution Law



Being that Providence, RI is a popular hot-spot with quite a few strip clubs, notable Cheaters, Cadillac Loungs, Foxy Lady, Desire etc...it serves to take note of the brand new lar outlawing prostitution behind closed doors.  Prostitution has been legal behind clothes doors for years, including spas, brothels, women's homes, and yes, strip clubs.  Many of the Rhode Island clubs are notorious (coughcheaterscough) for being glorified brothels, where "extra's" can be had for the right price, and anything goes behind closed doors.  

While I myself had no problem with this indoor prostitution being legal, obviously many did, as the new Governor enacted the law.  Essentially many spas have had to shut down, as business has sharply declined due to police crackdowns and workers fearful to return to work.  Ultimately it begs the question, will this hurt the spa industry in Rhode Island, both legitimate and not,.  Was the lack of a prostitution law behind closed doors really that detrimental to the communities and Rhose Island as a whole.  Many strip clubs now will have to take new measures to ensure these kinds of things aren't going on, but let's be honest here, it's probably still going to happen.  If people want to engage in this type of behavior then it's going to happen, they might be more discrete about it, but I don't think it will ever stop completely.

My larger question in regards to Rhode Island strip clubs, is how will they be affected?  No one is foolish enough to think that they will suffer mightily as a result, as strip clubs have and always will be profitable.   But will the crackdown cost them any of the customers who only came for "extra's", will clubs really take extra precaution to abide by the law, or will everything continue as it previously had?  What are your thoughts?


Ultimately, I think the law is a step in the right direction, but merely serves to change public opinion of Rhode Island, but fails to actually make a change on a local level, as much of the activities will probably continue.

If you take a careful look at the new statute, the definition of prostitution is very broad and covers most of what the Tuscl readers would consider reasonable "extras".  If fact any touching of the genitals with the sexual stimulation as the objective is technically prostitution under the House version of this stature.  It strikes me that (a) the statutes have given vice cops broad discretion to harass the performers and their customers, (b) whatever "consideration" strip club owners have provided these public servants will likely increase and (c) this increased cost of doing business will be passed onto the customer.  Remember we're in RI gentlemen.

I haven't heard of any strip clubs closing down yet (although last I heard that dump in downtown Providence, The Sportmans Inn, was in trouble over some shootings there), but Central Health, an AMP that pretty much set the standard for all AMPs in RI IMHO, has apparently closed down.  North Main Street Spa was in trouble as well.  I've yet to check out the Providence Phoenix to see about any more, as it will take a few weeks for the pre-paid AMP ads to be weeded out.

While LE has said so far that enforcing this new law will not be a top priority for now, I would think that strip clubs would be stupid not to clamp down on "extra" activity immediately.  All it would take is one significant bust to potentially get shutdown by the politicians in RI.

My feeling is that the RI tourist economy will suffer big-time as a result of this new law, at a time when RI can least afford it.  Strippers are already trying to leave the area for places in nearby MA or CT that will tolerate "extra" activity.

Indoor prostitution was simply not illegal, it was never legal.  The impact on the clubs from the Police has been minimal.  The impact from customers who are afraid has been huge.  Given Providence's history the guys seeking extras are going to be mad, but guys such as myself who want full-contact laps with no extras even offered will benefit as the the less attractive dancers will disappear and the prettier ones will come back.
