I guess the Canadian government want to be sure that they aren't hiding anything before allowing them into the country???


FOREIGN STRIPPERS MUST SUPPLY NUDE STAGE PHOTOS TO OFFICIALS

By TOM GODFREY, TORONTO SUN

IMMIGRATION OFFICERS are having to pore through naked pictures of hundreds of exotic dancers to keep impostors out of Canada. Foreign strippers planning to table dance in clubs here must now provide photos of themselves with no clothes on to qualify for a visa for Canada, immigration officials say.

"Stage photos during performances are required," said Sergio Mercado, of the Canadian Embassy in Mexico.

MEMO TO VISA OFFICERS

In a memo to fellow visa officers around the world, Mercado said if a dancer passes the no-clothes test, they may then require a police certificate or medical examination.

The memo was obtained from access to information documents obtained by the Sun.

The potential dancers have to prove they can dance in the nude, immigration lawyer Mendel Green said yesterday.

"They can't be partially nude," he said. "If they don't have pictures in the nude, they are not going to wiggle their bottoms in Canada."

Immigration lawyer Richard Kurland said the women have to show nude pictures to ensure they're not abusing the system.

When it comes to Russia, the visa officers are looking for "headline performers" who can be paid up to $5,000 weekly and are often featured in ads of which they are expected to have copies.

PHOTO SPREADS

Officers at the Canadian Embassy in Moscow said most headliners have been subject of photo spreads after vying for "Miss Nude North America or Miss Nude Europe" contests.

Immigration officer Dorothy Christie said once dancers arrive here they are usually placed in strip club lodgings and paid $60 every time they're on stage, $10 for a lapdance and $20 for a VIP room lapdance.

Each week the women must pay $100 to an agent and $50 for a driver as well as $10 nightly to a DJ, the officer said.

This is more common than you think. Kano requires an 8" by 10" nude glossy from all moderators. Some obscure Australian law.

Uh... say... WHAT?

I'm completely boggled. I've seen a lot of strange laws, but this is one for the books. Do you have a link for the source??

And it's not true about Kano. However, we required HIM to supply us with 8x10 glossy photos of him without his yeehaws on. Obscure Australian Law, donchaknow?

So what do you have to do to get into the debates? An actual strip tease?

Yeah, there's something more to this than the article implies.

Stripping is one of the most heavily regulated cottage industries there is, and the travelling/international stars probably have it the worst.

I sense this is a prove you're female thing.

But it's not like they don't have the body shots ready to give. That's pretty much their resume.

Aaaaaaaactually, some of them strippers are male and some are drag queens. And some are transsexual in the process of changing genders.

let me understand this right, you have to be female in Canada to be a foreign stripper? Hmmm do I sense discrimination?

Somehow I believe Kano would find it in his heart to make a "charitable donation".

Somehow I'd think this law would have OVERWHELMING public support!

My reading of this part:

The potential dancers have to prove they can dance in the nude, immigration lawyer Mendel Green said yesterday.

"They can't be partially nude," he said. "If they don't have pictures in the nude, they are not going to wiggle their bottoms in Canada."

Immigration lawyer Richard Kurland said the women have to show nude pictures to ensure they're not abusing the system.


Says more to me than they just have to prove they're women. It sounds almost like a subjective esoteric consideration based on border patrol either saying Okay, you'll do or Honey, you've GOT to be kidding with those hips.

Now I read this different than Byrd and others maybe. But that's what it sounds like to me. No horrible scars, penises, saddle bags, undeveloped siamese twins, or whatever would subjectively prevent a bare butt tour of Canada.

Edit (grammer): My dyslexia gets worse when talking about naked people it appears.

"Damint"? is that a contraction of "dammed intelligence" or perhaps "dames interesting" or in the case of the blurry 8x10... "damn squint"?

p.s. before spanking the irreverent monkey, remember that an infinite number of monkeys, banging on an infinite number of keyboards (typewriters are just so over) could have produced this post in about ten seconds... if they only had internet access.

Im a gay male and if they are discriminating against male strippers it will go hard on them. (bad pun) If they are stopping males that is unfair. I am perfectly willing to donate my free time to make sure the male strippers aren't hiding anything.

Actually the whole thing sounds like a chance for government officials to get free porn and peeks at the girls.
