'THE POINT is that striptease is about wanting, in a fantasy world, what is denied you,' quotes our 'naughty' reporter William Leith. So, when he so generously gives pounds 1 to a stripper because she takes her knickers off and thrusts her bum in the air, are we still talking about fantasy? The stripper isn't, her pants are down. He isn't denied anything either because a real woman and not a figment of his imagination is 'spreading her genitals' before him] What was the purpose of this voyeuristic journalism?
