And it seems to think it has a cool reason for setting half the action in a strip club, but I'm not sure it really does.

They were going with the whole "Stripper with a Heart of Gold" trope. Hey, at least it wasn't a "Hooker with a Heart of Gold"

I think the pretty obvious reason for the Ram's rapport with the stripper is that they're two people that make their living on the way the public wants to view their respective sexes and both are experiencing diminishing returns as they grow older.
