A PROGRESSIVE bachelor party went to a strip club to get a better understanding of toxic masculinity, they have revealed.
Tom Booker and friends normally prefer activities like discussing green issues and swapping vegan recipes, but felt that the sexist pole dancing industry was something they ought to be aware of.
Booker said: “Going to the strip club really gave us valuable first-hand experience of how problematic we men are. I felt terrible objectifying all those gorgeous women.
“Admittedly it was difficult to have an in-depth discussion with attractive dancers wearing barely a stitch cavorting for our entertainment, but it just shows how ingrained sexism is in our culture.
“I feel we reached some very worthwhile conclusions. As Pete said, maybe it’s more sexist to ban strip clubs if women want to do it. That’s a really interesting point.”
Stripper Nikki Hollis said: “If they’re so progressive I don’t know why they’re giving their tacit endorsement to the patriarchal institution of marriage.”
