Here is the ABC News promo for the broadcast:
"For the mostly male customers, strip clubs are the epitome of an
adult playground, where libido and fantasy run free. For critics,
they are a depraved wasteland, where women are written off as immoral,
lost souls. But for the thousands of women taking their clothes
off for a living in cities across America, it is a job, and they
say it is one of the toughest sales jobs on Earth."
