Relocating strippers to a neighborhood near you

Last week, the Ohio Senate passed a bill that would place super strict restrictions on strip clubs, forcing them to close at midnight and eradicate lap dances, among other things. Last week, the Ohio Senate passed a bill that would place super strict restrictions on strip clubs, forcing them to close at midnight and eradicate lap dances, among other things. As the bill now makes its way to the House, strip club owners are fretting that Senate Bill 16 would absolutely kill business. But not a guy known only as Greyson, the owner of Male-A-Gram, a private stripper service based in Cincinnati. On Thursday, he posted a blurb on his MySpace blog about how this law will actually be a boom for private dancers. He notes that it will likely do little more than “close clubs and push dancers into private homes,” which paints a very lovely image in C-Notes’ mind. Just imagine hoards of half-naked men and women roaming the neighborhoods of Beachwood in latex cop costumes. We’re sure that Citizens for Community Values – a proponent who also helped ban same-sex marriage in Ohio – would just love to see that. – Denise Grollmus
