Since this board is so split on strip clubs, I’m curious: How do you ladies feel about Hooters/Twin Peaks type of places – any place that has waitresses dress in little, tiny shorts and barely-there tank tops, encourages them to flirt/touch clientele, etc.
It’s never been an issue with DH and I – he’s never been to this type of place, and his friends don’t really frequent either. But if he asked to go, I doubt I’d care that he went as much as I’d care that he WANTED to go. If it was for work or something, I wouldn’t be too upset.

I don’t have a problem with it. I trust my SO more than I trust just about anyone in the world, so I know he isn’t going to do anything.

If his buddies went and he went I wont lie I’d be very uncomfortable but wouldn’t get upset. If he found the need to go to these places on a regular basis I’d have an issue. But I’m against strip clubs so you can kinda guess my views lol

I don’t have an issue with it.
My mom used to say, “Your stepdad can window shop all day long, it’s when he buys something that he’s in trouble.”
I’m along those same lines. We are human, we look. You can’t deny that you’ve never looked at a scantily clad man and thought ooo yummy. Why should men have to stop noticing women just because they are in a committed relationship? I feel it’s an unfair expectation to have of them, after all, they aren’t dead.
This is just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

He doesn’t go, he thinks it’s demeaning objectification of women and lousy food and ambiance.
I’m inclined to agree on all points, I find it’s the opposite of culture.

The food at those places is usually lousy and the beer menu is usually pretty limited so I’d be surprised if he went there honestly.
I wouldn’t be upset if he went there occassionally but if he started going to one of those places regularly I’d probably get peeved.

Those places don’t bother me. I trust FI and know who he is coming home to. I’m usually the one suggesting we go to Hooters because I love wings and we don’t have any around where we live.

@QueenOfSerendip: I wouldn’t care. Some if them have good food. I honestly like tilted kilt

I agree with you. It wouldn’t bother me that he would be seeing those girls as much as it would bother me that he wanted to go to a place like that and look at them in the first place. If a pretty girl walks by and he looks then whatever, but if he starts wanting to go out of his way to see women who are dressed a certain way then I am not okay with that.

I wouldn’t care. He can look but he can’t touch. Plus I have a theory. If you let him look, it might get him riled up. And when he comes home, that will turn into lots of fun sexy time for you 😉

I asked my husband. He said, “The food sucks at those places, I have no interest in going.”

doesn’t bother me at all. Neither do strip clubs for that matter. FI isn’t a big fan of either. He has gone only a handful of times and it was always for an occasion. A birthday dinner with the guys at hooters (more for the wings than the women!) or to watch a big game with the guys (hooters again). Granted you are talking to someone who goes to hooters with family, inlcluding kids. I really don’t think hooters girls are dressed terribly. its shorts and a tank top. ok so they are a bit tight…. and short… but whatever, they aren’t showing anything indecent.
we have tilted kilt here in chicago and that place just bothers me in general. Maybe it’s because I know a girl who works there and she happens to really sleep around and it tends to be with customers who I know for fact are married or have girlfriends. So I think because of her I just automatically get skeeved out at the idea of that place lol. I hear the food is really good though! I haven’t gone myself yet, FI has though and he says its nothing to write home about. food, women or other wise.
ETA: to clarify, a lot of our neighborhood friends go to tilted kilt where the one chick works. it has happened 4 times (that I know of) that this girl has propositioned guys we know who are married or involved. Granted she does this elsewhere so maybe I shouldn’t just let her ruin the restaurant for me lol but she really gives those girls a bad name! :

Fno doesn’t seem to care for these types of places, but if he did want to with don’t think I would care. It’s like the the waitresses are taking their clothes off at the table or anything.

Those places aren’t really his style, mainly because the food isn’t very good and they don’t usually have very good beer selections, but I have no problem if he wants to go.
There’s a Tilted Kilt down the street from where we live, probably the closest bar to our apt and he’s never been there.
