A group of five Las Vegas “Stripper 101” erotic dance instructors is suing their employer for installing surveillance cameras in their classroom.  “Stripper 101” is a non-nude show and class which is a popular tourist attraction on the Las Vegas Strip. 

Charging that the cameras are an invasion of privacy, the instructors claim they were secretly installed in their classroom, which doubles as a dressing room, and the video feed of the instructors and students in various stages of dress and undress, performing erotic dance routines, was viewed by managers.  The suit was filed in Clark County District Court. 

According to news reports, Stripper 101 Producer David Saxe claims the cameras were installed as part of a routine security upgrade and denied anyone’s privacy was violated.  “When did they tell the instructors that? When did they tell the customers?” said Las Vegas attorney Eva Garcia-Mendoza, who represents the erotic dance instructors suing Saxe and associated companies and individuals. 

Saxe recently proposed a $1 million challenge for the girls to take a lie detector test to determine the validity of their allegations that they were secretly videotaped. “We’re not going to do it. It’s a gimmick. It sounds like it came from a circus barker,” added Garcia-Mendoza. 

A July hearing is planned on a motion by Saxe that the suit be dismissed.
