New York Court: Lap Dances Not Tax-Exempt

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 47•24 Jun 14, 2011

Ruling that lap dances do not qualify for tax-exempt status as a "dramatic or musical art performance," a New York court has ordered a gentleman’s club to pay nearly $125,00 in back taxes. What do you think?

  • “Wait, so if it wasn’t just a performance, then that means…she was really into me after all! I knew it!”

  • “The club did it all wrong. First, it needed to get an MFA. Second, apply for and receive an NEA grant. Third, center its dramatic or musical art performance around a withering condemnation of the objectification of women through the ironic usage of the male gaze.”

    Kirsten Anderson –

  • “What about if she pees on you? Doesn't that make things art these days?”
