Stripper sues D.C. club for sex discrimination
An exotic dancer is suing a well known D.C. strip club for $2 million, saying that she was pressured into having sex with the club’s general manager in order to keep her job.
In the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in the federal court in the District, Talayna Clements accuses the club of sexual discrimination and creating a hostile work environment.
The encounter that prompted the lawsuit occurred in July inside the Stadium Club, according to the lawsuit. After attending a private party one night with several professional football players, Ms. Clements, another dancer and the unnamed general manager returned to the Stadium Club for a drink. At the club as the other dancer went outside to smoke, the manager asked Ms. Clements to dance for him and then instructed her to have sex with him.
Ms. Clements, of Northeast D.C., was “scared and intimidated,” and “unwillingly had sex with him for fear of losing her job and her livelihood,” the complaint states.
It was unclear whether any criminal charges had been filed as a result of the interaction.
No one could be reached at the Stadium Club on Wednesday to comment about the lawsuit.
