Lusty Lady strip club in San Francisco closes

A San Francisco strip club that bills itself as the world's only worker-owned, co-op peep show closed its doors for good.

The Lusty Lady theater on Kearny Street in North Beach closed Monday evening.

The dancers formed a union in 1996 and then bought the club in 2003. The Lusty Lady is the only unionized strip club in the country.

The employee owners blame rising rents and the growth of online adult entertainment for driving them out of business.
