I think that 2012 is going to be a big year for ten dollar dances, two for one lap offers, special value days and happy hour specials. I think that for many of those that have been visiting the clubs, the thrill is gone.
The format hasnt changed in fifteen years. There is only so much that is going to be done in a lap booth, the VIP rooms are generally a scam and the girls are getting to be more and more generic looking.
I also think that 2012 will be a good year for those adventurous PLs and dancers who want to connect OTC.
This probably wont hurt the clubs too much as they can just keep adding girls and lap space while they make less per dance. But for a lot of the dancers, especially attractive ones, who have limits on what they want to do. This job may get to be a grind, at 6.00 per song.
