in playboy magazine -when i was younger obviously-all the nude females were anthropology majors at usc or ucla.

My husband and I had a bachelor/bachelorette party. We ended the night at a strip club, and us girls were having more fun and were more rowdy than the guys!

A friend of mine was married to a stripper. (He married her and then she became a stripper ) His ex loved going to strip club and so I go with them once or twice a year. I didn't see a lot of couples, but then I may have been distracted. We did often go with other woman and I can say that as rule woman are more crazy at strip clubs than men, or they just get drunk faster

I have never been interested in that type of thing. However, I am always willing to try new things, so I would go and have a good time. Stay safe.

Strictly a professional interest?

Not even. I can separate work and eroticism. You don't "see" with the same eyes. Hard to explain.

Interesting. Being a techie, I find it impossible to watch SciFi. Most of the props and he way things are arranged to work elicits and immediate "bulls*it" and a comment that "it" does not work that way.

Glad you can separate. Enjoy.

I've been to a few. The clubs where women dance were far better than the ones where men dance. Magic Mike they aren't!

The girls usually have some dancing and pole tricks talent, which is actually enjoyable to watch (I took pole dancing classes for about three years), whereas the guys just tend to take off all their clothes and stare at themselves in the mirrors.

I've foun it interesting, but have only gone with a group of girls, never co-ed. Have fun!

I actually knew a girl in college who earned her degree that way. Her parents were killed in an accident when she was 18, no money, no relatives, etc. and for her that was her "ticket out". To my knowledge she did not engage in any of the other activities that "gentleman's clubs" are notorious for, and she kept her grades up.

Acknowledged she is the exception but sometimes it does happen.

A friend and I waited at a strip club for a ride after the car broke down. We were in our early 20's and had been at a dance club about a mile away. Anyway (I'm a little hazy on how it started) but the girls enlisted us to become part of the show, even giving us their ones to give back to them.


The one solid memory I have is being goaded into putting a dollar bill in my mouth for one of the strippers to take and the extreme reaction it got from the guys. I didn't like the reaction and I thought it was disgusting to put a dollar bill in my mouth!

Agree with that. Also, a pretty stripper in Shreveport told me she was a student at the local Bible college! I absolutely believedher.

Also, a disclaimer: I have not patronized a "gentleman's club" in several years. However, I'm spending a week (work related) in Ft. Worth/Dallas at the end of the month, and have already been briefed that might happen.

This thread reminds me of what used to happen in Tampa many years ago. In fact it may still happen, but I do not keep up with these things anymore. Tampa had many all nude strip clubs, and periodically the police would raid them and the customers would be arrested and had their names show up in the paper. Nevertheless, the clubs kept operating.

I'm not a "regular" visitor to these clubs, though I would suggest there's a broad continuum within which these places fit.

Some are very prissy, for lack of a better term, some are downright raunchy, and some could give nightmares to the more gentile among us...
