If you’re looking for adult entertainment Brisbane has to offer, your options are likely to include plenty of strip clubs and adult lounges. What you may not know is that, where adult entertainment permits are concerned, an establishment is considered for adults only if they meet certain criteria.
But what is really interesting is that you can have topless barmaids working for you and not need a permit. Not what you’d normally expect since it’s common knowledge that any business that shows plenty of skin and some body parts are considered adults only.
As you can see, talking about permits for the adult entertainment business, no matter how technical, is quite riveting.
What is adult entertainment?
It refers to the kind of entertainment where certain parts of a performer’s or staff member’s genitals, such as the anus, penis or scrotum, vulva, and vagina, are visible.
As defined by the Liquor (Approval of Adult Entertainment Code) Regulation 2002, permits are required whether the said parts are visible by accident or deliberate.
So the rules apply to businesses that offer strip teases and exotic nude dancing, and those that operate with nude waitstaff.
A permit, however, is not generally required for adult entertainment Brisbane businesses that employ topless barmaids and for those promoters and ticket sellers in G-string. Provided, of course, that the clothing that covers other parts of the body is not transparent.
And the real reason that sex is a fantasy in a strip club…
Is because the rules strictly prohibit sex and anything else related to it, including as simple as placing the genitalia close to someone’s face. Yes, even that kind of teasing is not allowed.
And you can’t proposition strippers because…
Prostitution and soliciting for it is not allowed. Even if a client makes the proposal and money did exchange for sex, the club would still be liable. Thus, the strict rules against it.
And the penalties?
Fine of up to 200 penalty units or $25,230.00 or permit suspension or cancellation.
So, as un-sexy as this discussion is, understanding the rules that govern adult entertainment Brisbane businesses will open your mind to why a fantasy is all you can enjoy in a strip club. It’s also one way to become a consummate club patron.
- Respect the strippers, dancers, and waitstaff like they would their friends and colleagues
- Tips generously at the bar, on stage, and during private dances
- Dresses and acts like a true gentleman
- Indulges in what a club has to offer, from the drinks to the women
- Enjoys a good night out without necessarily getting hammered
- Know the rules and respects them
You’ve seen and read it before, employees of a strip rarely expect an environment or a workday that can be as uneventful as working in an office. But if you will be different, you’re going to make someone’s night brighter.
