One of the coolest things for me as a kid was going to Disneyland and visiting Tomorrowland. It was a fascinating place that stylistically made me simultaneously think of both the future and the past. Like, the rocket ships were going to go Mars, but the cabins in the ships looked like 50′s style “modern” lounges, the type you would see illustrated in the pages of your father’s old Playboys.
Imagine my (theoretical) thrill then when I read that Playboy is entertaining the thought of a gentleman’s club in space; dovetailing off of Virgin Galactic’s plans to launch their own space tourism flights this summer. A Playboy representative elaborates….
As Virgin Galactic gets closer to becoming the world’s first commercial space line, Playboy is eagerly pondering the creation of the ultimate intergalactic entertainment destination. This heaven-in-the-heavens will exceed starry-eyed travelers’ wildest dreams, and guests will truly experience a party that’s out of this world.
Alas my days of going to gentleman’s clubs are long gone as far as you know, but even if Playboy’s plans are more “theoretical” than realistic, the idea of getting a lap dance in zero gravity does cause the mind to wander. Perhaps I can convince my wife to let me go just so I can check out the futuristic architecture and design styling……
Below are some artist’s renditions of this “stellar space strip-club” (hey…not bad, huh)?

(Note: If you are new to my blog, I post about all sorts of things. Sometimes it involves something extremely personal, like creating a 30K baby or my Monster Trades. Other times it deals with hot ex-porn stars who trade stocks. And sometimes it’s about how to avoid “suicide”. But a good place to start is The Best of bclund.
