Dear Dr. Skye: I’ve got a bar bet riding on your answer. Does a bad economy help or hurt the sex trade? — Gerald H., Tampa, FL
A: It depends what part of the sex industry you are talking about. Internet porn seems to do well no matter what, but recently the strippers in NY clubs complained about a lack of business due to the stock market fluctuations. The New York Post reported that strip clubs were seeing fewer customers and a major drop in lap dances. Exotic dancers are feeling the squeeze these days, and it isn’t from a frisky patron!
