Work That Pole, Dude

And you thought all strippers were women. Think again! The dudes are no shrinking violets when it comes to climbing up ye olde stripper pole. At the World Pole Dancing Competition in Tokyo, men and women mounted the brass rail to show off their best barely clad aerial acrobatics. This was the first year that…

Wedges That Take Stripper Heels To New Heights!

Someone should tell the craftsman who whittled the lil' pole dancer on these 7" wedges that stripper heels are usually made of clear plastic. But, hey, whatevs. The $175 price tag on eBay is a steal for such an, um, unique item. (Although we're pretty sure falling off 7" tall shoes will break your neck.)…

Strippers On Ice, Er, Wheels

Deja Vu in Las Vegas has come up with an exotic idea for how to get people to their club. They've created a stripper mobile. Yes, really. It has glass walls and a pole in the back where one of the club's best dancers performs as it drives through town. The truck makes its round…

Strippers Who Claim They’ve Slept With The Men Of Hollywood

Have you heard about Nicole Forrester? She’s a dancer at the hilariously named Tattletale club, where she says she began an acquaintance with Josh Duhamel that ended in a one-night stand.

We Can Hardly Wait For The Chippendales Movie

The '80s. Male strippers. What more could a girl ask for? Variety says director Tony Scott ("Top Gun," "True Romance") has signed on to direct a movie about Steve Banerjee, who created the male stripper phenomenon that is the Chippendales. Banerjee started out pumping gas and ended up the uber-wealthy head of the dudes-in-thongs phenomenon.

Fishs Eddy Strip He Glasses

While pinup girls make regular appearances on everything from jewelry to automobile mud flaps, we don't see pinup guys, well, anywhere. Thankfully, tableware company Fishs Eddy has come up with a set of cheeky (har, har) glasses to fill the void. Featuring a pole dancer in butt-baring chaps, these 13.5 oz. cups are certainly one…

Stiletto Attack, Stripper-Style

When 52-year-old Jo Ellen Nolan lost her job this year, she jumped right up and landed a new one—as an exotic dancer. I think that's fantastic; I’m much younger than her, and I don't consider my legs eligible for that kind of backup plan. Jo Ellen expected that the younger strippers at the club would…

Stripper With A Taser Gun Is On the Run!

Anyway, at Cabaret North, a topless club in Fort Worth, Texas, exotic dancer Kathleen Bennett got in an argument with waitress Jennifer McReynolds. As they exchanged words, a manager fired Bennett.

Do Men And Women Go To Strip Clubs For Different Reasons?

Do men and women go to strip clubs for different reasons? Tanya Gold, a Guardian scribe who went to London's Spearmint Rhino strip club and a Chippendales show, thinks so. She said the difference in the audiences was stark. At the Chippendales show, groups of women screamed delightedly at the strippers, clapping like they were…

Even A Strip Club Manager Thinks Miley’s Pole Dance Was Uncomfortable

Okay, publicist for SCORES a "gentleman's club" in New York City. You won. I took your opportunistic press release bait. I called up Ed Norwick, the general manager of SCORES, to ask him what he, as a sort of stripping aficionado, thought of Miley Cyrus' pole dance number at the Teen Choice Awards. Our chat,…

Yeah, Baby: Channing Tatum, Male Stripper

You know it's going to be a good day when you wake up to find a video of Channing Tatum stripping off his clothes. Of course, Channing Tatum stripping off his clothes in your bedroom would be better, but we take what we can in life, don't we? Apparently, before he was famous and killing…

Rhode Island Lets Teenagers Be Strippers

When I was sixteen, most of my friends were working retail jobs at the mall while I answered phones and sorted mail as a receptionist after school. Great spending money, but admittedly a snoozefest. But a loophole in Rhode Island law allows 16-year-old girls a different kind of job opportunity. “Lucky” ladies in RI under…

According to Variety, peroxided songstress Christina Aguilera will be starring in her own version of "Showgirls": "Burlesque." Watch out "Striptease"! Aguilera will play an "ambitious small-town girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club that appears to be right out of Bob Fosse's 'Cabaret.'" That's weird.

From Jobless To Topless: Women Strip to Stimulate The Economy

Turns out our turd economy is good for one thing: stripping. Applications to jobs in the adult entertainment industry have risen like adolescent boy schlongs in the last year. Today’s flashdancer could be a sad hottie simply downsized from her job at an imploding international investment bank… It’s better than an unemployment check. One night’…
