If my daughter were was approached by such people, my voice would be raised in objection. Fortunately, mine are beyond this crap and even then they would have been disgusted by such a proposition. But then, I raised them to be, underneath the apparent wildness, confident young women with self esteem and that rare trait ~ common sense. I am not naive.
I know that this goes on but is it really necessary to promote it as "healthy wholesome alternative employment' to our teens of either gender? What message does this send to their impressionable young selves?

Recruiters of teenage strippers may soon be scouring Toronto high schools in search of female students who can be groomed into disrobing part-time as exotic dancers to earn college tuition.
"We are already doing some outreach work in some areas," Lambrinos said. "We will be taking a strippers' dance pole with us to the schools."
"If you are visually appealing and comfortable with your naked body and are comfortable about taking all your clothes off," the flyer states. "You can be working right now as an exotic dancer and earn your tuition fees for university or college."Students are told they must be "comfortable ... onstage at a club and disrobing," and are guaranteed that "no actual sex or sex acts (will) occur."It warns them that they will have to provide private dances, or table dances, in dark lounge areas and part-time, full-time or seasonal jobs are available.
Lambrinos said photographs and descriptions of some the dancers will be posted on the Internet and newspaper ads with text seeking Canadian husbands. Potential hubbies will have to be citizens and not have a criminal record.
