In every strip club there are time wasters.
These guys are often regulars who come day after day or night after night, but rarely tip and never buy dances. They survive on a diet of cheap alcohol, the attentions of new girls who don’t know any better, and baleful glances from the women who have established themselves at the club and know their M.O.
I keep mentioning the strangeness of the strip club world where women pursue men who sit back and wait to be courted, but it cannot be overstated. Unfortunately it’s exactly this role reversal that brings out the time wasters. They don’t have to worry about impressing anyone. In fact, the less impressive they appear, the more likely they are to be approached by the beautiful, scantily-clad women who wander the club.
Everyone who’s ever gone to a strip club hoping to learn about the dynamic between customers and strippers feels the need to point out the obvious: strip clubs exist mainly so their patrons can feel really special. Thanks. A lot of intrepid observers go a step further and point out that ha ha, the customers aren’t really that special because they are paying the dancers! Anyone with an equal amount of money could achieve the same result! Every time I read an article that gloats over the fact that customers pay strippers, I suspect the writer is a time-waster.
Time wasters, you see, are better than the average strip club patron.
