Taxing strip clubs

Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg, has proposed a law, House Bill 751, that would create a sales tax on adult entertainment services to provide nursing home residents and others more spending cash. Lap dances won’t be taxed, but admission into the strip clubs will.

The bill defines adult entertainment services to “include lingerie, bikini, or nude modeling; body shampoos or scrubs; private shower shows; peep shows; nude, semi-nude, or topless dancing; nude, seminude, or topless waitressing; lap, friction, couch, or table dancing; erotic massages or performances; nude photo sessions; and personal escort services.”

This may be the most titillating bill of the upcoming session.
