With the world in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are having to innovate if they want to continue operating. 

That's the case of Oregon strip club The Lucky Devil which has switched up its business model in a unique way. The club has created a drive-thru in the carpark, using tents, stages, music equipment and barricades.

According to a Fox report, customers pull in and dancers perform while the food is being cooked in the club's kitchen, before being handed through the car window. The club even throws in a free roll of toilet paper. 

"You pull in and you get one or two songs with the gogos, then we bring your food out to you and then you go on your way," Lucky Devil owner Shon Boulden told The Oregonian.

"We're continuing to keep our kitchen guys working: all of our bartenders, all of our dancers."

The dancers all appear to be following hygiene protocols - photos show masked and gloved strippers pole-dancing while customers remain seated inside their vehicles.

"These Reuters photos of a strip club in Oregon operating as a drive-through takeaway service confirm that we have reached the neon anime sci-fi part of our future dystopia," wrote Capital reporter Sean Craig in a tweet that's now gone viral. 

It's not the only sector of the adult entertainment industry adapting to these uncertain times. Many strip clubs are now going virtual and a Kiwi sex worker told Newshub earlier this week she's using phone and video chat methods to cater to clients.
