The expression, "Captain Save a Ho" is one coined and used by sex-workers, especially strippers, to designate the man who often comes into the club and, although he buys dances and utilizes dancers’ services, he is constantly trying to "save" them, although they never asked for such an intervention. His methods are always underhanded and suspicious, because he at once asks dancers, "Why are you in this business? You could so so much more. You could be somebody," while at the same time buying dance after dance and coming in night after night to enjoy their work. This type of customer is the least favorite amongst exotic dancers because his intrusive questions and holier-than-thou attitude is not at all welcomed by hard-working women who find it to be very condescending, patronizing, and hypocritical.
He is a man who is insecure with his ability to get women that he seeks out women who are "damaged goods". This man treats them well and tries to be their Prince Charming in the hopes that the woman will fall for him in spite of his attractiveness or other downfalls. He thinks this is the only way he can find love.
