    Rhode Island - Teen Strippers, Old enough to Be Indoor Hookers but too Young to Drive

    Teen Strippers, Old Enough to Be Indoor Hookers but Too Young to Drive
    Rhode Island's Quirky Laws Have No Rules for Minors in Sex Business

    By SUSAN DONALDSON JAMES
    July 23, 2009

    Elizabeth Roberts' 17-year-old daughter was put through the bureaucratic wringer to get a summer job in her home state of Rhode Island this year.

    Under state law, the teenager could not operate a power saw, work on ladders or even pump gas. The state also regulates how many hours and times of day minors can work.

    But in Rhode Island, where Roberts is lieutenant governor, the teen -- with a work permit -- can take off all her clothes at a strip club, even those where adult men can touch the merchandise.

    Just this week the Providence Journal revealed that a loophole in the state's minor laws do not restrict girls as young as 16 from working as strippers, as long as they are home by 11:30 p.m.

    This spring, while investigating a 16-year-old runaway who had been working at one of Providence's notorious strip clubs, police discovered that they could not prosecute, because there were no local or state laws barring teens from working in the city's thriving adult entertainment
    business.

    "To think that any minor could just as easily be employed as a stripper is mind-boggling," Roberts said. "This must end immediately."

    In other parts of the country, even in Las Vegas, there are age limits on strippers, according to the report.

    Providence RI is well known for the quality of its Italian restaurants. As for the tarts in its strip joints thanks for the heads up but I`ll pass.

    why, you have a problem with young women? Grow up. Until a year ago, it was legal to bone 14 years olds in Canada, these days the legal age of consent is 16.

    I have been to Providence more than a few times and seen some providers there. The climate there is much, much safer than in Connecticut or Massachussetts. I have a friend there who specializes in seeing non-pro college students for $150-$200 and from what he tells me they are easy to hook up with. You have a lot of colleges, Brown, URI (in Kingston), Johnson and Wales, Providence College, just to name a few.

    The city has some good Italian restaurants as mentioned previously. The airport is somewhat primitive but is easy to get in and out of and is right next to I-95.

    Well all,

    I've been to Providence many, many times. It's very close. Back in the day the old Fantasies Gentleman's Club was incredible for being able to touch, as in Montreal contact clubs. But I think a stripper under 18 was very, very rare. The women I remember seemed to be all college students. Many said so.

    I know age-based consent can be pretty arbitrary, but under 16 seems unconscionable. In my view, in consensual sex or working in any sex related industry, 18 is a rational minimum.

    Every now and then I think I hear in the news, a cult leader that has married an 8 year old. How is that possibly legal?

    It isn't. It is a marriage he himself has conducted. It has no legal basis.

    Consensual sex is a far cry from working as a prostitute from any number of viewpoints.

    I'm 18, I want to bone my 16 year-old girlfriend. I think that is just fine, and should be legal.

    Grow -up . You're kidding.

    We aren't talking about two teenagers going at it in the back seat, we are talking about old farts sitting in pervert row leering at naked underage girls and you rushing for the best spot.

    By definition they are not underage. As far as I am concerned, some 16 year old legally wants me to have my hands on her titties, who am I to deny her her right to make a dollar?

    please explain to me how adding a year or two to the girl's age (from 16 to 18) makes this activity moral to your way of thinking.

    Also, if it is immoral for old farts to leer, is it not immoral for us to leer and fondle a girl of any age?

    They are underage to work as sex workers in nearly every Province and State. Sorry but I find underage girls working in this industry sad and their customers sick. Most authorities would agree with me.
