Lindsay's Dad Makes Desperate Plea -- to Maury?

10/27/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Once again proving how out of touch he is with his daughter, Michael Lohan went on the Maury Povich show today and delivered a televised message to LiLo in which he insulted her ... and then promised to "save her life."

First Mike called Lindsay a "hollow person" ... then claimed there was "nothing left in her" -- and finally said he "couldn't even look at her."

Then, after the dramatic plea, Michael actually had the stones to say, "I hate to speak out publicly like this..."


FYI -- Today's show was called "You're 14 ... Stop Lap Dancing and Trying to Get Pregnant."

Stay classy, Michael.

A lap dance is a type of erotic dance performed in some strip clubs (sometimes called gentlemen's clubs) in which the patron is seated, and the dancer is either in immediate contact (contact dancing) with the patron, or within a very short distance. Depending on the local jurisdiction and community standards, lap dances can involve touching of the dancer by the patron, the patron by the dancer, neither, or both; the dancer may be naked, topless or fully clothed. Variant terms include couch dance which is a lap dance where the customer is seated on a couch, and bed dance where the customer lies down. In some places a block session (usually half an hour to an hour) can be booked in the champagne room, where the dancer and the patron talk in an intimate setting and drink champagne together. The dancer might perform lap dances too, depending on the patron's wishes.
In many clubs, the duration of a lap dance is measured by the length of the song being played by the club's DJ. Charges for lap dances vary. Sometimes sexual partners will perform lap dances for their partners as a teasing kind of foreplay.
Full-contact lap dances often involve non-penetrative sex where the stripper may rub her lap or genitalia (if naked) against the patron's. Local jurisdictions and community standards typically determine how much and where the patron can touch the dancer during the lap dance. In some cases, any touching by the patron is forbidden. On the other hand, absent any oversight by the club, various levels of contact may be negotiable between the participants. Clubs vary widely with regard to whether they enforce their rules, or turn a blind eye to violations. Some patrons wear a condom before they enter the club: along with wearing pants that are very loose, this allows the man to have so called dry sex, while being safe.
It has been alleged that some club owners, by installing dark private booths and charging dancers steep stage fees, are covertly condoning and encouraging sexual acts between customers and dancers.
Lap dancing clubs are a development of the earlier strip clubs, in which strippers danced on stage and were paid a wage. In the 1970s, New York's Melody Theater introduced audience participation. The Melody Theater became the Harmony Theater and operated in two locations in Manhattan for over 20 years until it was closed down in 1998.
In 1980, San Francisco's Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theatre changed its policy so that customers could have dancers come to sit naked on their laps for a $1 tip. The practice quickly spread.It suited club owners, because it brought in more customers and it meant they had to pay less to the dancers. Sitting on customers' laps evolved into lap dancing.
In some areas of the U.S. and Canada, local authorities began cracking down on lap dancing after reports that some clubs allowed customers to engage in sexual intercourse or other sexual activity with the dancer during lap dance sessions.[citation needed]
In 1994 – in a ruling which was to have an impact throughout the English speaking world – a Canadian court (Judge Hachborn of the Ontario Court, Provincial Division, in the case of Pat Mara and Allan East, the owner and manager of Cheaters Tavern) ruled that lap dancing did not contravene laws on public decency and defined what lap dancing should mean. A number of conflicting judgements were passed in the years that followed, including decisions to close certain bars in which sex acts took place on the floor of the club and other rulings in which patrons were allowed to touch the dancers as long as an actual sex act didn’t take place. Finally, in 1999 the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that lap dancing was legal. This led to the displacement of strip clubs and table dancing clubs in Canada by lap dancing clubs. Lap dancing arrived in Britain, quickly flourishing in every major city. A court ruled in 1998 that full strip at a Liverpool club, Angels Paradise, was acceptable, as long as the dancers were not touched at all by the client, and that the dancer must remain 12 inches away at all times. Some jurisdictions in the United States outlaw lap dances and enforce a minimum distance between dancer and patron. One such minimum distance ordinance in Seattle was overturned by public referendum in November 2006.
Concerned about reports of sexual assault and illegal stage fees, in 2006 San Francisco's Commission on the Status of Women recommended a ban of private rooms and booths at adult clubs in the city. However a majority of dancers at the Commission on the Status of Women's meetings and San Francisco Board of Supervisors' meetings protested against these efforts, fearing for their income and claimed that these rooms are safer than other venues

As much as I detest Michael Lohan and his antics I have to agree with him this time. If, Lindsay doesn't change her life he will indeed sadly be burying her. Her Mom should put her energy into helping Lindsay not hating Michael.

I always hated Lindsay! I thought she was an ok actress and certainly ugly, with her freckles and nastiness! NOW, with her parents exposing their ruthlessness, I actually feel sorry for her now!

JAZ, I must agree with you. Look at his eyes....they look just like Jon's (His new BFF) did. They both should be drug tested. I do however think LL needs to get her sh*t together and SOON! Her Friends (and not her family) need to do an intervention!

This guy is completely scary. She needs to get a protection order and stay away from him. She needs recovery and this loser will only hurt her.

Well I think it would be "weird" if a parent didn't want to help their child in a situation like this. It's the people that are around her now and not helping her that's the problem. I too would go to any lengths to reach out.
