When I turned 18 I worked as an exotic dancer in Oklahoma. There they had very strict rules about strippers. Club patrons can’t touch dancers when they were nude or semi-nude. In my case, in Oklahoma it was topless only so basically when you did a table dance for a guy, as they called it where I worked, you didn’t dare let the client touch you. The cops would actually come up, pull out a ruler and measure just how far you are away from the guy. If you are to close your butt is going to jail.
It’s nothing personal, that’s just their job – to enforce the law and the law in some states is, no touching the dancers.
Every state has their own rules. Actually every city within a state. For example, in Oklahoma City, you had to wear full bottoms and latex over your nipples, while in Tulsa in some clubs you can go fully nude.
As far as the Stormy Daniels arrest goes, they are reporting a vice cop witnessed a club patron touching the dancer (Stormy Daniels) and acted according to the law for their county. This was in violation of the law and as such, she went to jail.
We may not always agree with the law but the law is the law. If you break it, you have to pay the price.
Her lawyer tweeted that Stormy Daniels had been arrested for “allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner.”
He later said be released on bail “shortly” and that she would be charged “with a misdemeanor for allowing ‘touching.'”
The big deal here could be, and again I want to be clear I’m not a lawyer but from what I understand is, that in some towns like Las Vegas that require dancers to be licensed or get what is commonly called “Sherrif’s cards” – this could prevent her from getting approved to get that license in some of those towns and that could hurt potential future bookings.
