“Research” at the Strip Club

Filed under: The world today — John Maass @ 6:28 am

Here we get a story about how female strippers make more in tips when they are “fertile,” and not on The Pill, than strippers who are using The Pill.  “Dancers made about $70 an hour during their peak period of fertility, versus about $35 while menstruating and $50 in between,” says the researchers. 

How, you ask, did this study come about?  Why of course, with state funding!  This project was conducted by researchers from the Univ. of New Mexico, who it turns out “visited local gentlemen’s clubs and counted tips made on lap dances.”  I wonder how auditors will react to the research expenses.  Was it paid out in ones?

Wow–if only my own dissertation had been so titillating! 

There’s also a link to a longer story on this project at Psychology Today.



  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is becfause your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking forr somjething completely unique.
    P.S Sorry forr getting off-topic but I had to ask!
