Full story: Lap Dancing in the North West...Moralists around Manchester, Liverpool and Carlisle
Moralists on Trafford's council's 'public protection' sub-committee have refused to renew the licence for Totties Lap Dancing Club in Altrincham, which had been running for the last 24 years.

The Venue is continuing to runas a nightclub but has only six months left on the lease from the landlord.

The owner said the option to appeal against the refusal of the licence to the magistrates' court would have been too expensive, bearing in mind there was only a short amount of time left on the lease.

At the renewal hearing last month, chair of the sub-committee, Cllr David Jarman said:

We feel that it's no longer an appropriate area for this type of establishment.

 

 

Obituary: David Waterfield...

A key figure in the British porn business, being the first to run cinema clubs showing hardcore and then starting Your Choice in the late 80s.


Link Here2nd April 2024
David Waterfield is one of pioneers of the UK hardcore porn business. He passed on the Sunday morning in Thailand, his home since 1996.

Waterfield was born 9 August 1943. He first flirted with the adult entertainment business in the mid-1960s, working as a stage manager for a Soho strip club. Later, Waterfield joined the Merchant Navy as a commis waiter, serving first-class passengers on trips from Southampton to New York. It was in New York that he noticed the large queues for the film Deep Throat . The entrepreneurially minded Waterfield, sensed a business opportunity and managed to obtain a small-gauge print of the film and smuggled in back to the UK. Advert for Waterfield's Exxon Cinema.

On his return, Waterfield opened two London-based cinema clubs in 1971 -- the Exxon and Archibald's -- which both screened hardcore films. As the Cinematograph Act 1952 did not apply to all film shows, Waterfield was able to use the cinema club model to show porn.

Later Waterfield and his wife Clark had the idea to start Your Choice , a business hosted in the Netherlands that dispatched pornographic video tapes to UK customers. Rather than risk customs seizure, they employed agents across the UK who copies video tape masters that had been smuggled into the country.

Your Choice was a success. Clark and Waterfield moved to Amsterdam, registering the business. They licensed titles from American and European studios, who were eager to enter the British market.  The company also became well known for its own successful series of porn videos, Viewers Wives.

The Melon Farmers would like to thanks David Waterfield and YourChoice for its well run affiliate scheme that helped fund the website.
