Strip Club Law About Human Rights

In Awareness, Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on August 29, 2012 at 1:48 pm

In a study, a San Francisco strip club fired a dancer in 2000 because she complained that a man raped her in a private booth. This year, at Albuquerque’s TD’s Gold, according to the Albuquerque Journal, “a female employee at the club called the police to report that she had been raped.”

The above are excellent examples as to why the ordinance will require all strip clubs to eliminate all VIP rooms that are unseen from other customers.

But not even the customers escape the sexual exploitation found in strip clubs. A 19-year-old female customer of an Albuquerque fully nude strip club alleged that another customer gave her alcohol and a powdery substance. Later intoxicated, she alleges a dancer coerced her to dance nude, and eventually a bouncer raped her.

Operators of strip clubs also may participate in human trafficking. The U.S. Attorney Office released that a Ukrainian-American man will receive 36 months in prison for his role in trafficking women from Ukraine to strip clubs in the Detroit area.

“These women were brought to America with promises of education and travel, and instead forced to work in seedy strip clubs,” said Brian M. Moskowitz, special agent in charge with Detroit’s ICE.
