British University Seeks Lap-Dancing Researcher

A British university has placed an advertisement looking for a lap-dance researcher with experience studying the erotic dance industry, The Telegraph reported.

The University of Leeds advertised the position for its school of sociology and social policy, according to the paper.

The advertisement reads: "Research Officer -- The rise and regulation of lap dancing and the place of sexual labor and consumption in the night time economy," reported.

The university requires "prior experience of conducting research in the female sex industry," reported.

The researcher will study the "rise, tolerance and integration of sexual consumption and sexual labor displayed through the erotic dance industry."

Sociologists at the school intend to interview 300 exotic dancers in the U.K., as well as managers and regulators, as part of their research.
