1. Janz, Kari. Exotic Dance: An Exploratory Study of Disordered Eating, Substance Abuse, and Disembodiment.

Degree: 2013, University of Toronto

The current investigation measured rates of disordered eating and substance abuse among exotic dancers, evaluated the relationship between these rates and measures of embodiment, as well as the influence of club-type on these patterns. Of the seventy-five (75) female exotic dancer participants, ages 18-39 from across Ontario, 35% (n=26) were found to endorse disordered eating behaviour, 57% (n=43) were high risk for alcohol abuse, 63% (n=47) were high risk for drug abuse, and 20% (n=15) were found to be high risk for all three. Cluster analysis revealed two separate club-types: 1). Positive Club Environment; 2). Negative Club Environment. Significant relationships were found between all measures of embodiment and disordered eating. Level of body connectedness was negatively correlated with risk for alcohol abuse. While no relationship was found between club type and substance abuse or disordered eating, significant relationships were found between club type and all measures of embodiment.

2. Nicolas-Pierre, Yamilée. L’écosystème des crimes de bars de danse érotique québécois .

Degree: 2012, Université de Montréal

Il existe des associations entre les bars de danse érotique et les activités illicites, dans les écrits journalistiques et scientifiques. Nous avons vérifié ces associations en menant une description des crimes et déviances associés aux bars de danse érotique. Puis, nous avons tenté d’expliquer l’organisation et la structure de ces crimes, en nous appuyant sur l’approche du crime organisant et la théorie de l’écosystème du crime, de Felson (2006). Des entretiens semi-dirigés ont été conduits avec dix femmes danseuses, une femme shooter girl, un propriétaire, un portier et deux clients. Une analyse thématique à deux niveaux a montré que les délits se rapportent aux stupéfiants, à la prostitution, au proxénétisme, aux déviances, et à divers actes de violence. Des distinctions importantes, quant au contrôle selon les établissements sont notées. La structure et l’organisation des crimes peuvent s’expliquer par une logique propre aux relations symbiotiques et interdépendantes, tel que le suggère la théorie de l’écosystème du crime de Felson. Ainsi, la structure des délits peut prendre une forme mutualiste ou parasitaire. L’interrelation propre au neutralisme explique l’organisation générale de ces délits. Le milieu criminogène de la danse érotique offre de multiples opportunités, qui seront saisies par les acteurs motivés, en vue de réaliser un bénéfice personnel. Deux constats étonnants : les données suggèrent que l’implication des organisations criminelles est relativement limitée; et les conséquences occasionnées par les activités du milieu présentent un caractère inquiétant, particulièrement pour les femmes. Des efforts en matière de prévention situationnelle seraient appropriés pour réduire les opportunités. Advisors/Committee Members: Morselli, Carlo (advisor).

3. Gunsallus, April Lynn. Neighborly Stripping: Exotic Dance in a Rural Club.

Degree: MS, Rural Sociology, 2012, Penn State University

Exotic dance research focuses almost exclusively on the working conditions of urban strip clubs and largely overlooks exotic dance in rural areas. This ethnographic thesis examined the work culture and structure of a rural exotic dance club in the northeastern United States. I reflexively analyzed data from 22 in-depth interviews and 120 hours of participant observation to answer two research questions: (1) What occupational culture do rural exotic show club dancers share?, and (2) How does the job of rural show club dancing influence dancers’ relationships with people outside and inside the club? I found that the structure of this club fostered a generally positive occupational culture by emphasizing equality among dancers and by not allowing club patrons to touch dancers. Dancers’ interactions with co-workers were mostly friendly and comfortable, especially when workers were willing to closely adhere to the club’s cultural norms. Dancers’ interactions with people outside the club were strained by negative stereotypes associated with exotic dance. The study found that many dancers wanted to hide their stripper status from outsiders, but had trouble remaining anonymous within a socially dense rural context.
