State of Higher Education: Thanks to Ridiculous Tuition More Coeds Becoming Strippers

Posted by on Apr 29, 2014 at 8:22 am

Let’s face it: With the abysmal Obama economy plaguing America can you blame these young ladies for doing what they need to to get by?

Ever since controversial undergrad/Duke porn star Belle Knox announced she’d be headlining her first strip show in NYC on Friday, college students have been racing to the poles.

Mike Diaz, manager of Show Palace, the all-nude joint in Queens where Knox will undress for a $2,000 fee, says that he’s been flooded with applicants eager to pay off college tuitions since the deal was inked in March.

“Some of these girls came out of school with a $50,000 [or] $100,000 debt. And this is a way for them to not have this debt,” says Diaz.

Plus students “can work around their school schedule very nicely with the gentlemen’s club industry,” adds Jeff Levy of the Association of Club Executives of New York, a trade and advocacy group for the adult entertainment industry.

We talked to three city coeds who signed up to strip at Show Palace. Each averages three nights and $1,500 to $2,000 a week, which goes toward tuition, school supplies, rent, savings and to their families.

Another upside: We don’t hear them sniveling about paying for their birth control like those feminist icons. Plus they’re pole dancing and proud and we’re all for empowering women:

Pole-dancing & proud: “A lot of girls marry guys for money and I feel like they’re being dependent. Whereas, you can come here and do your thing . . . and you’re becoming independent. You earn all your own money. You’re not depending on any man or mother or father, sister or brother. I feel like stripping’s empowering because I’m not really doing anything. I can stand there and somebody could walk up to me and throw me a couple hundred dollars and that’s it. It feels good.”

    Now Eric Holder can use the DOJ “Operation Chokepoint” to have banks close these coed strippers accounts. We can’t have people independent of government handouts!

    Pretty sad that even with the government handing out 10 and 20 year work payback student loan forgiveness programs these ladies would still rather strip.

    Funny how the Occupy crowd was all about getting their student loans forgiven by those horrible Banksters who FORCED them to take on massive debt to pay for college. But the Occupiers never said, peep, about the people at their schools who set the tuition rates that necessitated the loans in the first place.

    Those degrees aren’t worth the investment anyway.

    Even before you get to the PrOn, this is ‘Predatory Training’. How is a student loan any better than a subprime housing loan?

    What kind of a family would accept money from one of its own that they got by taking off their clothes?

    That’s not an option for all girls.

    For example, a Sandra Fluke would still need Big Government to pay for her condoms.

    New regulatory requirement under consideration by the Obama Administration:

    OSHA-approved stripper poles.
