There will reportedly be major changes to strip clubs in America because of coronavirus.

According to a TMZ report, strip club owners don’t think lap dances will be allowed once customers are allowed back during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Don’t expect the changes to stop there. TMZ was told by the same source that everybody entering a strip club will likely be required to wear a face mask and gloves, and that includes dancers. Strip clubs will also likely limit capacity. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Okay, I think it’s safe to say coronavirus has officially gone far enough. No lap dances? Gloves and masks on everybody? (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

In all seriousness, what is even the point of a strip club if you have to wear masks and gloves? At that point, you might as well just keep them closed.

If they’re not safe enough to be open as usual, then they should probably just remain closed for the time being.

I’m fairly sure customers aren’t rushing out to strip clubs to wear masks and gloves. How are you even supposed to drink in that environment?

It’s not that I don’t want strippers to have the opportunity to earn money. I want them to have the opportunity to earn as much money as possible.

I want everybody to return to work, but I’m just not sure these changes to strip clubs make it worth reopening anytime soon.

We’ll see what happens, but I don’t expect business to be booming in the strip club industry anytime soon.
