According to Katherine Frank's research, maybe you should! In her book "G-Strings and Sympathy: Strip Club Regulars and Male Desire" Frank complies the results of years of research as a stripper at different types of strip clubs. After interviewing over 30 of her regular customers she came up with some interesting conclusions.
While we may think that strip clubs give men an unrealistic idea of what a woman's body is supposed to look like, Frank thinks it does the opposite. Her years of research brought her to the conclusion that men have a very wide range of body types that they find attractive. She claims that most strip clubs have a variety of shapes and sizes when it comes to their dancers.
And what about the idea of married men sitting in a dark room and watching a woman who is not his wife dance in almost no clothes? The married men she interviewed had no desire to end their marriages. Many were just satisfying an unfulfilled area of their lives. According to Frank what happens in these clubs is just real enough to be exciting for the customer, but just fake enough to be just a fantasy. Fantasy is healthy and can help reenergize a marriage. Intimacy is not a part of the strip club experience and instead by going to a place where men can "vacation" from the everyday can help create intimacy in their marriage.
It's the money spent where even Frank herself draws the line. She claims that she would not like her husband to frequent strip clubs because she does not have that kind of money to spend on such a habit.
