This 10-part, unscripted late-night series goes behind the scenes at several Detroit-area "gentlemen's clubs" owned by Alan Markovitz, a 30-year veteran of the rough-and-tumble world of adult entertainment and the self-proclaimed "most successful strip-club entrepreneur in America." In addition to showcasing the steamy action that goes on inside his clubs – including a "fetish night" promotion and the debut of two jittery novices recruited from Pontiac – Topless Prophet sheds light on the private world of Markovitz, whose success transforming rundown strip joints into lucrative gentlemen's clubs is rivaled only by his insatiable desire to stick it to those he feels have betrayed him. Even with the Motor City in bankruptcy, Alan and his clubs are thriving – but staying number one isn't easy.

Topless Prophet - Modesty - Netflix

Modesty, sometimes known as demureness, is a mode of dress and deportment which intends to avoid the encouraging of sexual attraction in others. The word “modesty” comes from the Latin root modestus which means “keeping within measure”. Standards of modesty are culturally and context dependent and vary widely. In this use, it may be considered inappropriate or immodest to reveal certain parts of the body. In some societies, modesty may involve women covering their bodies completely and not talking to men who are not immediate family members; in others, a fairly revealing but one-piece bathing costume is considered modest when other women wear bikinis. In some countries, exposure of the body in breach of community standards of modesty is also considered to be public indecency, and public nudity is generally illegal in most of the world and regarded as indecent exposure. For example, Stephen Gough a lone man attempting to walk naked from south to north Britain was repeatedly imprisoned. However, nudity is at times tolerated in some societies; for example, during a World Naked Bike Ride. In semi-public contexts standards of modesty vary. Nudity may be acceptable in public single-sex changing rooms at swimming baths, for example, or for mass medical examination of men for military service. In private, standards again depend upon the circumstances. A person who would never disrobe in the presence of a physician of the opposite sex in a social context might unquestioningly do so for a medical examination; others might allow examination, but only by a person of the same sex.

Topless Prophet - Gender differences - Netflix

Men and women are subject to different standards of modesty in dress. While both men and women, in Western culture, are generally expected to keep their genitals covered at all times, women are also expected to keep their breasts covered. Some body parts are normally more covered by men than women—e.g., the midriff and the upper part of the back. Organizations such as the Topfree Equal Rights Association advocate for gender equality regarding display of the body. In 1992 New York State's highest court accepted 14th Amendment arguments and struck down the provision in New York's Exposure of the Person statute that made it illegal for women to bare their chests where men were permitted to do so.
