This is going to get creepy or X rated quick, so I'll get mine in before it goes over the edge and I can't keep up.

Some cure you of your desire to have sex, and not by having sex with you.

If it weren't for strippers we wouldn't have body glitter or belly chains. What a great invention.

...and how about dollar bill basketball...uh huh...good stuff right?

We need to wade past the obvious...as G-string Divas has taught us, some men just need somebody to talk to. Strippers fill a void ignored by many wives. And they typically have bigger h**ters...

This is one item where loonies makes it easier to play, except most strippers don't have any pockets for all of the change they get now.

You know, strippers are usally misguided girls
who did not get eough attention from their father,
or have some exhibtionist hangup because they
never had good self estem or... blah blah blah....

Man strippers are hot! Who am I kidding? Who cares
about WHY they do it (allthough money is a good start)
Lets just hope the ones with big h**ters keep doing it!

Place in society? How about a place on my lap!

G-string Divas

....aaahhh Divas...only 20 minutes from my house. a guy who tattoos in the shop I go to is one of the guys on the intro to that show.

But...back to strippers.

They play an important role because they provide a decent role model for the less promiscuous girls in society. Take for instance body glitter .... now a common sight in any bar or club because regular chicks have live up to the expectations that their sisters in the G Strings have created.

Strippers sort of tell the regular chicks what guys want. Yeah thats it....and did I mention that for 2 E pills each you can get the lesbian strippers you hire for your buddies bachelor party to do it on the pool table in your basement in front of 40 guys.

As a matter of fact, I to the total disbelief of all those I was with, went to our local gentalmen's club this very week, as a guest of the bar owner. He and I stood there and talked about local city planning ordinaces and his plan for a new business venture. He said his girlfriend was really mad because he was there, I said she would not believe we were talking about antique shops.

So my spin on it today, would be the preceived perception of what happens there. Generally I would say the most vocal people about how horrible it is are people(women) that have never gone in.

It was funny seeing the looks on the guys faces..... you are really going to go? I said yes. There are other women there right?

Men, generally, in those establishments are respectful and are understanding of what ever rules apply.

Women on the other hand are very disgusting and grabby at male strip shows. If men treated women stripper like that, many more problems would occur.

I think that people are interested in seeing people naked or some part thereof. I think we will always have establishments like this. It is a way to fullfil that naughtyness in a legally acceptable way.

Probably should be another confession thread, but Chad and I went to strip bar with another couple. They served alcohol (which I drank a lot of), so they must have been topless only. The girls were all pretty ugly, so why would guys want to pay to see UGLY women naked? Guys, clue us in here....

In Florida they can serve drinks and totaly strip.

Because we can't hear these girls talk
with the load music!

Because they don't want us to go shopping!

Because they don't care if we make an a** out
of ourselves!

Tell me about it. I divorced my ex partly because she would religiously go see male strippers 1-2 times a week, and was absolutely obsessed with one male stripper nicknamed "Destiny." I did my own PI work and found out how the women do things. It's completely different.

Of course, Homer Simpson has something to say about strippers.

speaking to Bart in a tender, fatherly voice...
Homer: Strippers are people too; naked people who may be willing to pleasure you for a price you negotiate later behind the curtain.

I'm sure there are many more....

The hot chicks work in the bars that serve soda. Note: Does not apply to Vegas.

The topless joints are kinda like stripper retirement homes, somewhere for the old and shriveled up stripper (30) to go when there is nothing else for them to do.

I saw an episode of Insomniac where Dave Attel went to this NASTY stip joint in Atlanta. As one patron put it, "This is where old stippers come to die"

It has been my experience 'round these parts that the cocktail waitresses and bartenders are far hotter than anyone on stage.

Nor does it apply in Reno...I always check out the Gentlemen's Club in downtown...wonderful place to relax. I especially enjoy identifying the "augmented" verses the "naturals."

You will notice that there are no strip bars with male strippers all the time. This is because women don't usually go to see male strippers for the same reason that men go to see female strippers. Women usually go for "situational" reasons: a birthday, a divorce, girls nite out bonding, etc. It's not about sex, it's about getting stupid with your friends and acting silly. Then you go back to your real life for a year or two. Many men who patronize strip bars, do it regularly.

I'm not sure, but I think I was in that placve in 1994 when I was in town for my EDFP certification. A guy named "Trip" (no sh*t he was Trip the 3rd) that worked for a Loosiana utility comapny took me there. Nasty....

I wonder how many sweet little girls sitting on daddy's lap say they want to be strippers when they grow up, and would daddy encourage them?

There's no doubt in my mind that there's usually some traumatic experience in a girl's early teen years that causes them to 1) devalue relationships and 2) eventually become strippers (or prostitutes, or crackheads, or whatever).

Probably more than a few.



Imagining conversation with future daughter. ;)

"Daddy what will I be when I grow-up"

"You're so smart and pretty, you can be anything you want...A doctor, a lawyer, or even a famous scientist. And if you're lucky, work hard and ask Santa for fake ta-ta's like Mommy has, you may even grow-up to be a topless pole dancer."

"I love you daddy."

Not in this part of Florida! No alcohol is allowed where any parts are showing, which is why most of the places in my part of NE Florida are "bikini bars" or "show bars". Of course my city has been sued over its adult entertainment ordinance which originally permitted such establishments only in industrially zoned areas. Gotta love that baptist influence!

And yes, women do act like idiots at male strip shows. I was dragged to one for my bachelorette party and my god, I was kind of embarrassed to be a woman that night because 95% of the women there were acting like idiots.

Last year, my friends and I went to one of those co-ed stripper bars on Bourbon Street. It was the most memorable and disgusting experiences I've ever had. These two guys, whom my friend named "Milli and Vanilli," propositioned us. We politely declined but one of them insisted on giving us a preview. He took out his "johnson" and proceeded to tie it into a knot. He was standing behind my two friends backs so they couldn't see him. I was the only one to witness the freak show. I just gave him a dollar and told him to go away. Needless to say, we never went back.

There is just absolutely nothing about male strippers that even remotely appeals to me. A friend of a friend picked up crabs in her eyelashes from a male stripper in Niagara Falls. Blargh!

As for female strippers, I just think its crazy that you can make more money taking your clothes off for money than most planners make. So I really can't hate on girls that strip. Or work at Hooters. Sometimes a girl just has to go where the money is.

Its my understanding that there was some gyrating in the face going on. Honestly, I'm not quite sure, but i'm heard stories of strippers having people lick whipped cream off their stomachs or chests. I would imagine however, if it were a male stripper, he'd be shaved, so crabs really wouldn't be such a problem. But maybe this was a really skeevy male stripper who didn't shave his stomach. or whatever. blargh.

We hired a stripper for one of my friend's bachelor parties she let him lick whipped cream off of her. One of the guys at the party works for Nabisco, so there was a case of easy cheese handy and we tried to get her to use that on herself or the bachelor. She claimed she was lactose intolerant and politely refused. Funny thing is, I didn't realize there was any dairy products in Easy Cheese.

An aside... interesting article in my husband's Men's Journal magazine regarding a new "trend" in men shaving the hinterlands....

I've heard of male strippers who will "satisfy" women orally, for a fee. My fiancee's friend went to a bachelorette party, and actually took up the guy's offer!

OK. In the future I won't post things that sound so incredibly naive.
