"What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play.

Life is a cabaret, old chum. Come to the Cabaret"

But only if you're 18 or over...old chum.

Lyrics by Liza Minnelli and legislation proposed by Bismarck Representative Brandon Prichard R-Dis. 8

Just when you thought it was safe to strap on your stripper heels and put on a public cabaret, along comes ND House Bill No. 1333 which intends to deflate the balloons in your bustier.

The bill seeks to redefine adult-oriented performance and establish a penalty

 1. As used in this section, "adult cabaret performance" means a performance in a location other than an adult cabaret which features topless dancers, go - go dancers, exotic dancers, strippers, male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest, or similar entertainers, regardless of whether or not performed for consideration.


I was following along just fine...topless dancers, go-go dancers, strippers, male or female impersonators, etc. But then I came across prurient and I confess I was stumped.

Let's head to Merriam-Webster for a definition of prurient

marked by or arousing an immoderate or unwholesome interest or desire

especially marked by, arousing, or appealing to sexual desire

Didn't we use to call that lewd and lascivious?

Roll with the changes I guess. So if this bill passes what can I expect if I'm feeling prurient in public? This is also from the proposed legislation.
2. A person is guilty of a class A misdemeanor for a first offense and a class C felony for a second or subsequent offense if the person engages in an adult cabaret performance: a. On public property; or b. In a location where the adult cabaret performance is within the line of vision of an individual under the age of eighteen.
Just so we're on the same page if you are being prurient make sure it's on private property AND make sure you cannot be seen by anyone under the age of 18.  If the bill does get enacted into law- just be prudish with your prurience and you can still keep on dressing pretty y'all!
