A few weeks ago, the NYT had an article on how you know it is a downward economy - I guess besides the 24 news of shut down business, banks, and markets plummeting.
While the things you think would be down are down - a huge indicator seems to be strip clubs. I guess those Hedge Funders can't part with their $1 bills to slip into Tiffany's g-string. They certainly can't pass a $50 for a lap dance.
But I am seeing the economy hit it here - where we might live: adult bookstores.
Now, in the last two days, I've hit adult video arcades to NO luck at all. Zero.
Granted, my writings here about them were hit or miss. I usually scored, but maybe not happy about it. I settle when I go to places like this. Even for a slut like me.
Yesterday there was no one in there. No one. Nada. Just me. I tried to hang around, but it was depressing. ...and the porn? Just BAD. I even like straight porn (guys are hotter), but awful, it was. Midgets sucking cock? Seriously?
Today was mildly better with attendance. But there was no one I would touch at all. I couldn't. I tried even - and he rejected me!!!!! WTF?
Granted, I know I'm a few years away from being these creeps in the store - but even i don't think I'm there yet.
I don't think I'll be going out of my way for that little venture anytime soon.
