A vegan strip club?

// 12 February 2008

This is one to file somewhere between eco-brothels and High School Girl branded meat products: someone has come up with the fantastic idea of launching a vegan strip club in Portland!

KPTV reports the story under this ‘hilarious’ headline:

Customers Find All Skin, No Meat At Vegan Strip Club

That’s right folks! It’s A-OK to compare ‘skin’ shown by women at a strip club to the skin on, say, your Sunday roast.

And here’s a quote from Johnny Diablo, who owns the joint:

(It’s) vixens, not veal, and sizzle, not steak… We put the meat on the pole, not on the plate.”

Want some more?

“My very sole purpose in life is to save as many creatures from pain and suffering as possible”

WWeek has more on this ‘ethical’ enterprise, and its owner who describes himself as “Lord & Master” on his MySpace page:

The club’s main claim to veganism seems to be that strippers cannot wear any leather, fur, silk or wool. If a dancer slips up and sports snakeskin heels, Diablo says he pulls the woman aside to talk about “not bringing murder victims into the establishment.”

For vegetarian Casa Diablo stripper Aria Winters, 20, who hates meat, Casa Diablo is ideal. “I would eat a steak and then have nightmares about being sliced up and burned,” she says.

UK Strip Clubs // Posted 20 April 2008 at 11:05 am

Vegan strip club, that is truly geniuses idea, I doubt however in the UK such an establishment would go down as being sincere in its intentions, indeed it reads like a total joke from a UK prospective. I know this is a feminist blog so I doubt this comment will actually see the light of day however I was hoping to one day see an article on lesbian ladies who work in the UK lap dancing industry and the increase in gay and lesbian strip nights that seem to be growing in popularity in clubs around the south of England but have yet to reach the rest of the country.
