I guess at Club X the work just comes naturally

By johnboy 5 July 2013 22

work available

In a way the continued existence of Club X in the heart of Civic is as comforting as other anachronisms, like the Canberra Times.

But on the way from the bank this afternoon I couldn’t help notice their hiring based on nothing but gender and looks.

How sweet of them…

What’s Your opinion?

She (The girl in question) never came back to school, but I did see her years later standing around in Kings X (Could have been coincidental but probably wasnt) and she saw me but didnt recognise me straight away and asked if I wanted to have some fun. I said no, I like not having STD’s and the fact the is no fire when I pee is blessing that I am thankful for everyday.

That rambled on a bit. I have worked at 2 stores in the past and there are so many stories….so many.

So many endings just as sad, too, I’m sure.

I remember back in college days (the good old 90’s) 8 of us went there as a laugh to check out the booth (The Stinkrooms), between us we had about $20 in $2 coins. All 8 of us crammed into the booth, taking extra care as to not touch the walls (You know why). The first coin dropped, a clicking noise indicated that the timer had started and the screen popped up……….to an empty stage. A few seconds later she must have woken up and stumbled onto the stage in a completly un-erotic fashion.

She stumbled around in a semi-sinchuwas way (I spelt it that way on purpose sinchuwas asking) and took off her obviously un-necessary bra to reveal………dots. Yep, she was wearing dots and dots indicated to me that this would cost more than $2. As the 55 second mark came near the screen started to lower as did the clump of college students crammed inside the booth all trying to not touch the walls for fear of mockery and whatever other imagined social diseases may be caught.

The next coin dropped and the screen popped up and she started again until the money ran out, this went on until we hit the $16 mark and she had her top off and removed her fancy masquerade mask and all 8 of us simultaneously let out a gasp od shock loud enough for her to hear……….She was a schoolmate!

At that point we realised that she could also see us quite well (even though we were trying to hide our faces with oour baseball caps.) and she recognised us straight away and took off to the backstage area.

We all stepped out of the booth and went down the back stairs fully realising what had happened and went back to school. The whole way we were paying each other out and one guy actually touched the wall with his jacket and there was a mark left…..he never wore it again.

haha, yes, we got busted a few of us underage all in one booth. The angel behind the glass roused on us and we had to leave. Ohh… the smell…..

Oh my aching sides…..

After a few weeks, that will subside, but you may end up with some thicker skin.

Oh JB, you’re joking or you really don’t know what goes on there. They once had a fold out sign on Northbourne listing it, I was quite shocked, seriously wondering how the zoning permits it.

Oh come on! A corset and a bit of lippy and you’d scrub up fine! (Not in Barcham’s league, though, I’ll admit)

Hipsters need not apply.

HiddenDragon 5:53 pm 05 Jul 13

That is such a grotty part of Civic – I sometimes wonder whether TAMS actually pays people to give it a seedy, grimy mini-Kings Cross look, just for the benefit of those who say that Canberra isn’t a real town and doesn’t have a “heart”.

Oh yes I do recall,during my cab driving days,driving some of the girls to and from the establishment on a number of occasions and they weren’t backward in describing their stage/booth performance antics!

poetix 4:02 pm 05 Jul 13

I can’t help but notice the lack of a minimum age being given.

And the lovehearts…don’t get me started.

bundah 3:53 pm 05 Jul 13

What precisely will these gorgeous girls be required to do?Let me guess they’ll be serv(ic)ing behind the counter?

Pitchka 3:48 pm 05 Jul 13

Did you put in an application Johnboy….?

rhino 3:43 pm 05 Jul 13

I guess it’s not a skiled job, you just have to not be ugly and be female. Although from what i hear, even that first part isn’t a strict requirement. I get the impression that place isn’t too picky, so it makes sense that they don’t limit the number of applicants by suggesting experienced only.
