Exotic dancer

Why is it a common euphemism for “stripper”?

“Exotic dancer” makes me think of people wearing masks like this, loincloths and stomping around a bonfire, hooting and hollering. What’s exotic about a girl with too much makeup, fake boobs and dyed hair taking off her clothes? That sounds very run-of-the-mill. American as apple pie. Un-exotic. Stripperly.

Not that I’m down on stripperly things. If men want to ogle and grope, the least they can do is pay for the privilege. I doubt there are many jobs that pay as well per hour and don’t even require a high school degree. Power to strippers.
