HOUSTON, TX – Houston strippers are going to be a little more up close and personal with their customers, under a few conditions of course.

If 16 major Houston strip clubs get rid of all their private rooms, as well as donate one million dollars a year to human-trafficking investigations, the three-foot rule between dancers and customers will be eliminated and the strippers can be fully topless as well.

However, the Children at Risk organization is not a fan of the alleged relaxed enforcement of rules at the clubs.

They say the exemptions could, “increase the risk of sexual exploitation and trafficking” and, “the benefits to the clubs outweigh the benefits to the city.”

While the 16-year court battle of this case may be over, it looks like some other battles might just be getting started.
