What do you mean by aged strippers? How old is aged?

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

There’s probably a niche fetish cohort for that somewhere, but it is such a small one per population that it could never support a strip club. That’s what the World Wide Web is for. That’s why you see all these weird fetishes on the net, because it reaches so many people that they can actually support such strange fap material as PoledancingGrandmas.com

BTW, I just clicked it and the domain is available if anyone is interested.

Nobody wants to stuff dollar bills in panties that also hold your boobs down.

LornaLove's avatar

@chyna Why not? Are aging boobs not worthy of a few dollars?

@Adirondackwannabe Good point. Say 50 onwards. (I say 50 as I have a super hot friend whos a stripper and she is late 40s. She has a rocking body, but works hard at it).

Adult entertainment of all sorts is market driven. Capitalism is at work here.

And the market for people over, say, 40, is pretty small and diminishes as the age goes up. I guarantee you that if the demand were there, the older strippers would be too.

It’s the same with call girls and prostitution. Young sells, but there is a small market for older women for short term sex. And there is a population that supplies that market.

Haha..well, pole dancing grannies is a new one to me.
I think it’s pretty obvious, as @chyna mentioned, granny panties and boobs far along on their journey to Australia are not exactly what most men want to look at.
Aside from a few old geezer pervs that still patronize strip joints I’m assuming the average age crowd is early 20’s to maybe early 30’s. Most guys in that demographic aren’t going to be into looking at women their mothers age or worse, their grandmothers age.

I stopped in a strip club in the West Virginia panhandle some years ago to eat. Seriously, it was the best offering around.. If many of the strippers were still in their 30s, they were pretty fucking careworn.

One tried to entice me and my companions by asking if we were gay because we weren’t in the sniff row. She was missing several teeth and was fairly pudgy and wrinkly. I would have pegged her for being at least in her 40s or 50s.

We bought the local [finished machine shed] strip club and turned it into an auction house. Supposedly the strippers ‘entertained men’ in the trailer back behind, and one of the last strippers was 6 months pregnant.

Given those details, I’m fairly certain Granny Clampet could have had a job, given her spunk and naivete. Might need to bob her hair and get some really slick glasses, but hey…

LornaLove's avatar

@Coloma and @bolwerk Let’s not assume all women over 50 have wrinkles and saggy bodies. (Pity that naturally mature bodies are despised). Some of course look fantastic, while still looking their age. What is so off-putting about that? I understand that there is a universal standard of what looks attractive, perhaps balance, proportion, well kept hair etc., who says older women don’t have that? Including wrinkles, which are not always unattractive. Without falling into the fetish genre. (Which suggests perversion).

bolwerk's avatar

@LornaLove: I didn’t say it was off-putting. Though, I admit the missing teeth thing rather was. I answered your question about the lack of “aged” strippers. That place had plenty, though maybe they looked kinda prematurely aged.

Oh boy are you missing out on a cultural experience.

The notorious Clermont Lounge in Atlanta GA, The only strip club that’s actually fun:

The perpetual stench of Chesterfield smoke and used beer. Shadowy corners of wood paneling and peeling ruby velour barely obscuring the gaunt black man in the ill fitting jacket and fedora taking notes on the jiggling rear inches from his nose.

A cattle trough along the wall in the men’s. Crumbling and stained tiles hanging overhead. The Christmas twinkle lights.

A jukebox from the Carter administration. A subtle gelatinous sheen on everything as if from an early Cronenberg film…

Crooked wigs and tables. Breast augmentations seemingly performed behind a convenience store. Rouge.

Pocked shins, C section scars, bad limps, bingo wings, incomplete yet sincere smiles.

The table of bellowing dykes. Chaps, Chain wallets.

Madame Blondie with that huge keloid that will crush that empty PBR tall boy between her breasts for your pleasure and a few slightly damp Dollar notes. Swapping dirty stories with that anorexic from Winder.

I’ve entertained clients, danced with co workers at 4 AM, been bought dances by my girlfriend, wretched, talked and laughed with friends and total strangers as I soaked in the total Atlantaness of it all.

I haven’t been this homesick in quite a while…

@LornaLove You really want your grandma stripping for you.

I don’t know but, Marisa Tomei sure was hot in “The Wrestler”

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Oh, man. My Cousin Vinny

My (stomp) bye-a-logical (stomp) clock (stomp) is (stomp) tickin’ (stomp) heeyah!

Coloma's avatar

@LornaLove I’m a nice looking 50 something woman but my stripper material days are long gone. Plenty of nice looking “older” women, no doubt, but if we’re talkin’ Las Vegas show girl strippers, well…most 50 something women are going to be way out of their league. I am fully accepting of my aging but certainly have enough class to not be delusional that I could even, remotely, compete with some hard body little 22 year old. No shame in aging, but keep it classy. Nothing worse than older women that still try to act and dress like they’re 22, give it up gracefully I say.

GloPro's avatar

There are. They work the lunch shift.

Coloma's avatar

@GloPro Haha…serving saggy, uh, soggy donuts ey? lolol

LornaLove's avatar

@Coloma Compete? With what? That assumes only youth is attractive. How sad.

LornaLove's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe No, if my granny stripped, I’d be watching a 100 year old skeleton. Plus raise her from the grave.

So sad that people both men and women can only see ‘saggy tits’ etc., in women over 50. Since we live to nearly 80 that really is not that old. I thought really in this question the men would be more judgemental, but it seems that women are too. If a woman over 50 wants to strip and is in good shape, trust me there would be an appreciative audience.

GloPro's avatar

You gotta have thick saggy skin to strip at that age

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@LornaLove I’m kidding lady. Older people of both sexes can be hot if they take care of themselves. It takes some work but it pays off in a lot of ways.

Coloma's avatar

@LornaLove Sexually speaking youth IS more attractive, nobody is going to deny that.
It’s simple biology.
While loving ourselves and having confidence is a good thing being 400 lbs. is not going to be considered attractive to many as is not an organism past it’s reproductive prime.
Enjoying the totality of a human being, as a whole and complete and wise entity is timeless, sexual attraction is not.

You may not like it, but the fact remains, old bodies are not sexually attractive, this is nature. Once the glow of reproductive come hither fades we then need to make a conscious choice to embrace the inner beauty of another.
You have talked about your aging fears and loss of sexual attraction as a 50 yr. old women, well…no matter how physically well preserved one remains in later middle age, sorry, but, from a biological perspective, you’re no longer viable for having 2 Stags go into battle over you. haha

Coloma's avatar

Here ya all go. This girl is amazing! Doubtful a 60 yr. old could pull this off.

LornaLove's avatar

Well I disagree. A lot of my friends work out and look ten times better than most girls half their age. I never said ‘Loss of attractiveness I had said in that question: I fear not losing my looks but my personality. There is a difference. However, I find it sad that aged women as you put it no longer have 2 Stags go battle over one. I have always experienced that, despite not being perfect. Maybe all said and done, it is all in the head. If you consider yourself a washed out old hag then you are. It’s all in the brain, sadly.

I take it is this question that you are referring to? Being old means more than losing your looks. The scary part is losing who I am, if that is true? I don’t know. Perhaps older people here can share about how they did not lose who they were. Perhaps they found themselves instead

quite different to what you are inferring.

Coloma's avatar

@LornaLove I agree, “old” encompasses much more than physical looks. All I am saying, is that from a biological perspective youth is an imperative advantage. Sexy is a mult-facted package including charm, intelligence, wit, humor, and these things, ultimately trump youthful sexual attraction as we get older. I love my personality and it will remain long after the body parts fail.

Our culture is youth obsessed and I am proud that I have no desire to get any cosmetic “enhancements” as I age. Let the parts fall where they may, and regardless of how good a woman looks for their age, they are still their age and shouldn’t try to act like they are not.
Growing old gracefully is part of being psychologically healthy and not neurotic about the life process.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

There are no “aged strippers” because too many women, at least State side, look 8 years or more older after 25. Too much partying, smoking, drinking and recreational drug use can make a 26 year old woman look to’e up from the floo’ up, and beat up from the feet up. Add age to that mix and you have something bulgy with tons of cellulite and/or stretch marks that is not much to inducing lascivious thoughts in men.
