Nice Turn of Phrase

Setup: A private detective has gone into a titty bar to follow up on a lead:
I'm no prude and no one's ever mistaken me for a saint, but I've never been much of a fan of places like Glitters, even the ones that don't smell like the insides of my sneakers. Maybe it's the pretense of it all. I mean, a lot of the performers were gay and were as enthusiastic about being pawed by the patrons as burn victims were eager to receive skin grafts from a leper colony.
From The James Deans by Reed Farrel Coleman.

Nice.
