Mobius Strip Club

Entertainment That's Purely On The Surface

Decorated lavishly with Escher furniture and paintings, this exclusive club caters to the sophisticated patron who wishes to have both his/her body and soul entertained.

You enter, glancing around you at various visages that are plainly physically impossible -- and yet, there they are in front of your very eyes, defying reality.

Beautiful women dressed (initially) in complimentary black and white outfits are catering to your every whim.

And the best part: You are totally alone with them, because every patron is on a different segment of the shiny Mobius strip walkway that is in the center of the establishment.

May need to be implemented in a space station due to gravity concerns, although the sheer athleticism of many of the potential workers may compensate adequately even in the gravity well.

       If you get removed from this club, where do the bouncers throw you?

       I think that without benefit of friction my ass would get rather cold. []

       Haven't met an Escher fan, yet, who didn't suggest the art be pasted on something that already exists--but all over Amsterdam?!

       Completely amazed with the vision of the "worker" as her hand is doing something with a certain member while her other hand is doing the same thing to herself while the whole thing is so connected in that cool Escher loop...

       jscottpete -- have you seen their work with the bars? I'm not so sure.   

       benfrost -- I tried to accomodate mobius g-strings into this idea, but they would just detract from the attraction, I think.

       zero-g-strings would simply be annoying in floating around all over the place.   

       How did you solve that problem in the flooded house?
theircompetitor, Mar 07 2004
  

       The penultimate paragraph doesn't quite make sense to me. If you had a flat ring stage, every patron in front of it would not be "totally alone" - they'd be next to some other patron. Right? The same is true with a mobius strip stage.   

       If the author were to spend some time in a real strip joint, maybe "beatiful women ... catering to your every whim" could be revised to something more realistic? Tell them you're doing research.

       jutta, I was thinking that adjacent clients would be on opposite sides of the strip, but perhaps you are right and I stretched the topological possibilities.

       Cocktails on offer include the Triquetratequila and Entoptic martini. P.S. Bun for beating me to the idea by a whopping 2 ½ years
