"There are a lot of business owners out there that are still trying to figure out how to build a better mouse trap," Spokane City Councilman Mike Fagan said. "Unfortunately, here in the city of Spokane, that better mouse trap, in their minds, would be to sell sex."
Bikini baristas argue their jobs aren't harming anyone, and if anything, they're adding jobs to the state's economy. And in a fit of equal sexual practice, there's even an all-male topless coffee stand in Port Orchard, WA, called Banana Hammock Espresso, the state's only male-staffed bikini barista shop.
"It doesn't matter how good you look," said Banana Hammock owner and barista Adam Lovejoy. "If you don't have a good product, your customers aren't going to return."
