First They Came For the Tanning Salons...

Posted by on Mon, Dec 8, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Seattle Xotics—formerly known as X-otic Tan—a "private Lingerie Showroom" on Lake City Way that was at the center of many unrepeatable salacious rumors during my high school years—may be gone.

Xotics' phone has been disconnected and Slog Tipper "Creme Soda" claims they have a "for lease" sign in their window. Neither the owner of the business nor the owner of the property could be located.

According to Xotics' website LINK, the business—described by one police officer I talked to as "dirty," which the officer subsequently clarified as meaning "prostitution"—offered things like:

The model will strip down to her bra & g-string for you and you may do anything you like as long as there is no touching between you and your model.

Xotics is [also] proud to offer trained Dominatrixes. The Mistresses are skilled at humiliation, punishment, infantilism, puppy training, worship and a variety of other disciplines. We are equipped with a dungeon that contains a large selection of torture devices. Also, our Mistresses train men in the art of crossdressing. Whether you want to be a little girl or lady about town, we know how to get you there. Fetish and role play scenarios are encouraged and enjoyed.

In completely unrelated news, it's getting damned difficult to pay for a handjob in this town.

I remember when a girl (really hot, really naive) who came into raves I ran was so excited she got hired by Exotic Tan. All she had to do was put on lingerie, she said.

She never actually did work for them when she found out the real job requirements.

Maybe the "For Lease" sign refers to the merchandise inside?

There was a craigslist post for some type of garage sale there last week. ' own a piece of Seattle's erotic history' it said. The list of items included blankets and fabric chairs. My curiosity was crushed by the eww factor

I knew it. They're going to start policing peoples bedrooms. We'll all be doomed to Duggar-style loving. We'll be reduced to breeding-only sex...after they take away our condoms and BC.

***Stay out of my pants, Seattle cops!***

"Neither ... could not?" Isn't that a double negs, Jonah Spanks? Meaning that they could be located?

Who knows, I'm drunk.

Cops just want to deny handjobs to the rest of us. You notice nobody on the vice squad is complaining about doing these sting operations.

Speaking of which, the next big bubble to burst may be the 'Tang Bubble:

Getting damned hard to pay for a blow job?

Jonah, obviously you are not reading the back pages of your paper.

Paying for sex is sad but who cares? And why bother? Dennis Miller said it best: "You know, you could come back to this planet ten thousand years from now and man could have evolved to the point where he doesn't even take in nutrition from a hole in head anymore, but I guarantee you that he'll still be cruising ninth avenue trying to get a nob-shine from somebody named Desiree."

Consenting adults should be left the fuck alone. When you consider the fact that the solved murder case rates have dropped every decade until now it's almost fifty percent, why would we be wasting tax dollars to enforce puritanical bullshit? The same religious assholes who take away peoples rights gave us these bullshit laws in the first place. We need to grow the fuck up and get some priorities.

WTF? Since when was watching a girl strip or getting flogged prostitution?

This makes no sense...
