    not places like this to send it further on its downward spiral.
    I don't get people with this attitude. If you don't like the idea of topless dancers and "dirty old men" then just walk past the club and don't go in. Everyone will know what type of club it will be. I think the prudes amongst them expect explicit posters and signs scattered amongst the street. It's not going to effect anyone in the slightest! There's a sex shop further down the road. Does that offend anyone? I doubt it should. You can't see any sex products from outside...
    Yes we know there has been a "sex" toys shop in lowemoor for years, thing is, it does have young females getting thier kit off in front of drooling men now does it!. ok let me make it clear for those of you "that don't get it. it is my opinion and i am entitled to voice it. PLACES LIKE THIS ARE IMMORAL. some of you people do say really silly things.... cleaning toilets is an honerable job. GETTING PAID TOO SHOW YOUR BODY OFF TO PAYING PEOPLE IS IMMORAL. and what one of you said, it harms nobody- that is simply untrue. it harms both parties, the naked and the watcher. worcester eh...a city of charity shops, coffee shops and dens of eniquity.
    It's ok for you to have an opinion but you do appear to be getting rather passionate about it. I think you need to chill out a little (or take a cold shower)!

    The sex shop doesn't just sell toys - it sells pornographic images and videos of hetrosexual, homosexual, bisexual, domination, BDSM, BBW - you name it - it's on the shelf. And ironically YOU think it's ok to be on sale because they are just images. In fact, the pornographic actors are being paid to have sex - no matter how diverse the acts are. Some women even have anal sex for more money. But this is ok for you? How contradictive can you be?!

    I really do think that you are so out of touch of the modern world. You can see worse things on TV and the internet. Music videos are even at now - Lady Ga Ga and Miley Cyrus ring any bells? Children even have have access to to sexual images then ever before. Some kids are even "sexting" by sending naked pictures of theirselves to each other! This is immoral - but what can you do? Ban the internet I suppose?!

    But sex shops and strip clubs are pretty plain from the outside and it's your just whether you want to go in or not...

    I have no problem with sex shops. It's behind closed doors and no-one forces you to go in. It's the same as the strip club only the women aren't having sex. They are just stripping. And I have no problem with this either.

    There are many things in life that I don't agree with so I stay clear of them.

    If you are so worked up about this club then I suggest you start a campaign and protest against it along with all the other pudes out there..."

Worcester lap-dancing club could help Lowesmoor business, says trader

A STRUGGLING entrepreneur who fears her business could go under says prudes should stop moaning about plans for a new lap dancing club nearby, claiming it could boost trade.

Sarah Colquitt, manager and self-confessed “dogsbody” at the Puss ‘N’ Pooch grooming salon and boutique in Lowesmoor, Worcester, is fed up with people moaning about the Black Cherry club, when it could help struggling traders keep their heads above water in the recession.

The club, which could feature 15 naked or topless dancers performing each night, is scheduled to open at the site of the former DNA club in the new year.

Since your Worcester News revealed the plan, an e-petition has been launched by a psychotherapist, Dr David Mair, against Black Cherry on the grounds that the club will lower the tone of the area and that lap dancing can have a devastating psychological toll on the women who take part, damaging their self-esteem. Dr Mair also branded the club “insensitive” and “inappropriate”.

But self-employed single mother-of-two Miss Colquitt said more people should get behind the venture, rather than moralising.

She says the club would provide jobs for dancers, bar staff and security staff after Lowesmoor had been hit by five months of roadworks which began at the end of May to improve the look and feel of the area.

Mrs Colquitt, also a burlesque events organiser, said: “The businesses in Lowesmoor are dying a death. We have suffered five months of roadworks and been forgotten almost. It’s nearly killed my business.”

And Miss Colquitt, who said she had been forced to take on an extra job part-time to keep her business afloat, said she had been surprised by the reaction to the new club.

“It is surprising how prudish Worcester is,” she added.

“The club is going to open up a lot of work and if the dancers choose to do it then more power to them.

“People seem to think women are being beaten and whipped and forced into it for a loaf of bread.

"If it brings more foot trade past the window people might see there is a dog grooming business there. Most people know my business is struggling. The road works have literally nearly flattened me.

“There is still a possibility my business could survive and I have been holding on and holding on for a mini-miracle. I have been treading water but I feel like I’m sinking now.”
