Norma Smith was a little apprehensive about stepping inside Rachel’s for the first time Tuesday afternoon.
Smith, after all, is 77. And while she has often passed by this adult club, she never had the slightest desire to go inside.

Standing before her was a woman in fishnet stockings whose smile was winning and whose bustier was losing — the battle with her cleavage, that is.
Smith returned the smile but later confided she was thinking: “Oh, dear. Is she the one giving me the shot?”
She was not. In fact, if naughty nurses were anywhere in the joint, they were pretty much ignored.
Today, the women in the spotlight were medical professionals. And the only thing they flashed were needles.
Still, the offering was enough to entice dozens of elderly residents: Retired couples. Daughters with their octogenarian mothers. Even a shuttle-load from a nearby Catholic church.
