Advice From A Stripper: Strip Club Etiquette

Stupid mainstreaming of stripper culture. If I have to read another article about recession strippers, pole dancing classes, or strippers-turned-respectable-citizens, I’m going to throw my platforms at the cat. Our audience has changed, and instead of show behavior being learned by a young man on the occasion of his 18th or 21st birthday, it’s imparted from Auto-Tuned vocals and lists on the web. I’ve seen customers like the girl who slapped my ass so hard she bruised me, or the guy who threw quarters wrapped in dollar bills onto the stage. However, I assume ignorance before malice on their part, and, in that spirit, I offer these etiquette tips for customers in the strip club. Keep reading »

Channing Tatum Gives Ellen DeGeneres A Lap Dance

My boyfriend — I mean actor Channing Tatum — appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres” show this week to promote his latest movie, “Dear John,” which managed to knock “Avatar” out of the box-office top spot this past weekend. Of course, Ellen brought up Tatum’s former career as a male stripper — watch the video to see the proof — and cajoled the actor into giving her a little demo. Sadly, Tatum could only work up the energy to squat over Ellen’s lap and pop his booty a few times. Ellen’s right. A few dollar bills might have prompted a more enthusiastic showing. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: He’s Going To A Bachelor Party With Strippers

“Oh no!” My boyfriend started moaning. “This is not going to be a classy affair! Do I have to go?”

As far as invitations go, this one was direct: Montreal. Drinking. Strippers. Ah, yes, an invitation to a bachelor party from one of his high school buddies.

“He’s one of your best friends,” I shrugged. “It would hurt his feelings if you bailed.”

“But it’s going to be awwwwwwwful!”

And that’s how I found myself in the rather odd position of a woman who has less of a problem with her guy going to a bachelor party than he does. Keep reading »

A Former Exotic Dancer Inspires Military Wives Through Burlesque

Years ago, I interviewed Lily Burana, a former exotic dancer who wrote a book about her “farewell tour” dancing at strip clubs across the country. Earlier this year, I interviewed her again, about her latest book, one in which she chronicles the difficulties she experienced when her Army officer husband was deployed to Iraq. Now, the New York Times has a profile of Burana and her Operation Bombshell, which offers burlesque dancing classes to military wives. (Make sure to check out the accompanying audio slide show for a peek behind the scenes.) These aren’t classes in how to strip for your man; as Burana explains: “This is more Ava Gardner than Britney.” Instead, Army wives learn the fine art of peeling off their gloves, the “showgirl bounce,” and how to work a boa. Ultimately, says Burana, Operation Bombshell fosters camaraderie among military wives through a little sexy fun during these challenging times. [New York Times] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m A Stripper For The Holidays

‘Tis the season! That’s right — Christmas. We all endure the holidays with that familiar combination of dread and enjoyment. So much to look forward to! There are the office parties, the family get-togethers, the decorations, and the gift exchanges. Everyone has their own unique holiday traditions. My favorite tradition is to spend the holidays in the buff. In fact, the holidays just aren’t the same if I’m not naked. Why? Because I’m a stripper, and naked is what I do best. Keep reading »

Quotable: Dita Von Teese Doesn’t Understand Why “Stripper” Has A Negative Connotation

“I don’t mind being called [a stripper] because that is what I do, but I don’t understand why there is such a taboo attached to it. Basically what I do is like an actress that has nude scenes in a movie, it’s part of the role and its part of what my show is. It’s not really any different. I think it’s just too easy for people to criticize.”

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 men had their own division at the competition, and women came from around the world to compete in their division. While exotic dancing in gentlemen’s clubs involves nudity and sometimes raunch, “The only ‘x’ in the sport is exercise,” asserts the narrator in this video of contenders. So, what’s the difference between male pole dancers and female dancers? No stripper shoes. Keep reading »

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.) [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

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 rounds between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. and the girls wear bikinis, but still—there is the whole issue of kiddies seeing the funny business going down inside. And as the reporter in the video points out, what happens if the truck has to stop short? [CNN] Keep reading »

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. Nicole says the National Enquirer told her the story would be published whether she participated or not, and then gave her $20K, presumably as payment for the interview and polygraph test she provided. That money does buy a lot of stripper heels, but it’s not enough to solve many problems these days. Did she just want the money or is she telling the truth? [People]

Doesn’t it seem like a lot of strippers have made claims about the men of Hollywood? After the jump, a few similar stories. Keep reading »
