Portland area clubs take sex show ruling, run with it
Strip Clubs+Portland = $$$$
Workers at Mr. Peep’s spent much of Thursday afternoon cleaning out several small rooms in the back of the one-story adult book and movie store in Southeast Portland. By Saturday, the rooms were being used by young women to take off their clothes and touch themselves in a suggestive manner in front of paying customers.
Such so-called private shows have been banned in the state for much of the past three years because of an Oregon Court of Appeals ruling that declared them illegal. But the state Supreme Court reversed significant portions of the ruling Thursday, arguing that the Oregon Constitution protects such performances as free speech.
