In a country that offers everything from drive-through burgers to drive-through church services, a striptease club near Pittsburgh has something new for those who can't stop in for lap dances -- drive-through nudity.

"When they leave, customers are falling out laughing," said Nick Fratangelo, owner of the Climax Gentleman's Club in Salem Township on an isolated stretch of U.S. Route 22, about 35 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Motorists pull around to a window at the back of the club, show proof they are 18 or older and pay $5 per minute. Then they pull up a few feet to a second window and watch a naked dancer for the amount of time they paid for.

A 26-year-old Climax stripper who would identify herself only as Barbie, her stage name, said most customers pay for two to three minutes, but one man paid $100 for 20 minutes.

Barbie said the drive-through is popular with couples -- particularly on Friday or Saturday nights -- and for carloads of women.
