Seattle Times letters to the editor

Strip-club regulations: Seattle is ‘puritanical’

Enough already: city choking strip clubs with regulations

Wow! On July 4, The Times published five letters online all against the strip club opening near Safeco Field.

Everyone wants to protect children from exposure to these vile sex dens filled with perverts and degenerates. However, couldn’t Seattle’s puritanical regulations on strip joints be the reason children are the new target audience?

Since the strip clubs don’t allow smoking or drinking and lap dances must be from a distance of several feet away, why would a rational adult male waste his money on such a lame excuse for a strip joint?

I could probably find more stimulation at a prayer breakfast sponsored by a virgins’ abstinence club.
