strip clubs in bavel

yup, still thinking...
you know how the Rabbis say that it's not tznius for men and women to dance together? and especially not for men to watch women dance?
they weren't so dumb in creating those laws.
i doubt they had strip clubs in Bavel - so it's pretty far-thinking of them to envision that one day men would pay for the pleasure to watch a woman work it. definitely not tznius.

I never thought of this, now it makes so much sense why they would make Halachos saying men can't watch woman dance.

i don't know about bavel, but who says that in eretz yisrael the rabbis did not let men watch women dance? what do you think they did on tu be-av and yom kippur?
