Strip shows and wet t-shirt contests in bars are now legal under provincial law.
The latest move to loosen up Saskatchewan's liquor laws went into effect New Year's Day. It's the end of an era in a province where the combination of alcohol and stripping has long been banned. Performers still cannot be fully nude: women will
still have to cover their nipples and full frontal nudity is not allowed.
It's good news for Anna Scott, who is artistic director for the Bottoms Up Burlesque Club. Her dancers are burlesque performers, in contrast to exotic dancers that work in bars. However, before the change, her dancers could not even remove a
glove or feather boa in a licensed facility, she said.
It's not known if any bars are planning to immediately start strip shows or wet t-shirt contests.
