Business: Credit Card
Swiper Bra   (+32, -5)  [vote for, against]

Patrons who pay cash at an erotic dance establishment have the opportunity to stuff dollar bills down the costume of the dancer they're paying, for a smile and an ever-so-brief physical contact.

But what if all you have is an open heart and your corporate American Express card?

The credit card swiper bra brings the credit-card carrying constituency back into the fold, so to speak. Patron pulls out card, dancer bends over and does the look-here-are-my-breasts wiggle, card is run through the slot in the Swiper Bra, and a few wireless requests and a confirmation later, the dancer can move on to the next table.

G-string model sold separately.

"Hmm, doesn't seem to be registering. Let me try it again. Uh ... no, still bad. Maybe if I swipe really slowly ... Nix, gosh if I move it in the other direction ... or with just two fingers? Wait, I've got another card that might work ..."

Um, FarmerJohn, what's this item for $2,430.23 at "New York Dolls" on your credit card bill...?

That explains it, I wondered why an easily stealable bra would get so many votes.

Couldn't pay after the first five minutes. Bras come off rather quickly.

How about in the natural crease formed in the panties that most strippers keep on?

Butt swipe panties! Ho!

How are PINs going to be handled.
-- geo8rge, Nov 19 2005


geo8rge, you have to whisper the PIN to her, see the linked Groenbrother's video for a demonstration.

I don't think they wear bras anymore, so here we need another idea...

This is a pretty good quality joke.

I'm wondering if there's enough humor on this site from over the years that somebody could put on a reasonably good stand up comedy routine.
-- doctorremulac3, Aug 06 2014


Yes, but also no. It's a bit like saying "I wonder if there's enough water in this ocean to build a house out of?"

It occurs to me that a stripper with a techie boyfriend could get a prototype of this built and work it into her routine. I'd swipe my debit or credit card through there once solely for the novelty of it.

Alternatively one of you lot could build the hardware and shop it to the ecdysiast crowd who make their own costumes. Might be some burlesque girls interested as well.

// avoid messing with their cleavage. //

This is rather dependant on who's doing the messing, and the value of the payment, shirley ?

Hmm, I read the title as "sniper bra". I'm sure there must be such a thing.

And my visit to the Halfbakery tonight is to inform you that I have learned that this idea is...preheated.

This weekends trip to the library collected the "Dangerous Women" anthology.

From "The Hands That Are Not There" copyright 2013 by Melissa Snodgrass.

" The girl danced in close to her sweating admirers. Hands groped for her like blind babies seeing the tit, but she always eluded them. Unless those reaching hands held credit spikes. Those she allowed to be thrust into the credit deck that adorned the low-slung belt that clasped her waist."
