1.0 out of 5 stars a topless club is a place of business, June 22, 1999

This review is from: How to Pick Up Topless Dancers (Paperback)

i’m a stipper and i get this s*** all the time. a topless club is my place of business, not a place i go to because i want to meet men. i don’t like getting cheated out of my money. i don’t like men hanging around the door when i leave trying to get me to come to breakfast. there are women who’ll go home to party with these men, but not for free. we are all working women, not free sex toys for joe blow. if a guy wants to earn our respect, just pay us. these techniques are guarenteed to make strippers not like you. i wish guys didn’t buy and believe this book because it is a crock of s***.

There’s also this one:

3.0 out of 5 stars It did not really do the trick for me., March 15, 1999

This review is from: How to Pick Up Topless Dancers (Paperback)

Sure, the title sounds great but I found (through many painful experiences) that you need more than just a book to pick up on beautiful women who strip for a living. Sure it’s my dream but I think it will have to stay just a dream. The tips in the book sound convincing when you’re at home reading them but when you actually go to the clubs and try it out you just get dissapointed. There were a few girls that seemed kind of with it at first but after trying out a few more things from the book, they just got creeped out. Now, I cant show my my face anymore in some of my favorite establishments and I even (get this!) wound up with a restrainting order from one girl. All this stemmed from the tips in this book. I could scare girls easily enough on my own without the book. The book also fails to adequately describe the violence that bouncers are willing to exhibit upon someone who bugs the dancers. Ouch.

I’m both saddened that there was a) a market for this book and b) a publisher willing to print this garbage. However, it’s got plenty of ridiculous advice that I’ll be sharing this Wednesday at the Cottage Bistro- 4470 Main Street. That’s right misogyny and creeps are fodder for Say Wha?!
