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. Ultimately, he fell from his lofty male stripper pedestal when he hired a hit man to take out his choreographer over a contract dispute, and then died in jail while awaiting trial. It’s “Footloose” meets “Flashdance” meets “Showgirls” meets “Goodfellas”! I can hardly wait. Here’s hoping Brad Pitt signs on to star as Banerjee. [Variety] Keep reading »

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 tall drink of water. [$20 for 4, Fishs Eddy] Keep reading »

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 treat her like a mama bear, but when she met 22-year-old Chetania Davis, who goes by the stage name “Beautiful,” she shouted at Jo Ellen, “Just what I need, another new bitch.” Beautiful then launched herself at Jo Ellen in the dressing room, stabbing her in the head with the heel of a stiletto. Beautiful went AWOL, like the stripper who tasered a cocktail waitress, but was later arrested. Jo Ellen had to get seven staples to treat the cuts on her forehead. Beautiful plead guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to a year of probation and a six-month suspended sentence. Jo Ellen, her dancing career over, has registered with a temp agency. There is no word on what happened to the other shoe. [AP]

Leave The Stripping To The Professionals


It’s OK to laugh because she got up, walked away, and posted the video on the internet.

Old Dude Shows Strippers How To Work A Pole

Ah, Friday on the internet. A world of interspecial love and forbidden kitteh dances. On the less cute but no less hypnotizing front, the terminally cranky Copyranter brings us this unauthorized viral ad for Domestos house cleaner. Click play if you dare to find out what happens when you leave an older guy alone in a room with a stripper pole. (Hint: It isn’t pretty.) Good thing he had that bottle of Domestos disinfectant handy, no? [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Detroit City Council Trying To Ban Lap Dances

Oh, to have been a fly on the wall at the Detroit City Council meeting yesterday. DJs, strippers, and club owners descended on the council, begging to be left alone. See, Detroit’s city government is trying to put regulations on the adult entertainment industry and has proposed that dancers stay at least six feet away from patrons onstage and 18 inches away when they’re on the floor—meaning that there can be no intentional physical contact. So long, lap dances! I’m not a guy, but what’s the appeal of paying to be six feet from a naked woman when there’s free internet porn? There are 33 strip clubs in Detroit and many of the dancers are parents putting themselves through school or people who just have limited job choices. One single mother and dancer said, “All of us are young. There’s nothing else out there. There’s no jobs.” The executive director of the Association of Club Executives in Michigan and California says the clubs bring in over $3 million a year to Detroit. Religious figures from Perfecting Church and Second Ebenezer Church (how evil villain-core are those names?!) came to support the city, and the government hired a Tennessee attorney who’s apparently the master at closing strip clubs to consult for a mere $75,000.

Stripper With A Taser Gun Is On the Run!


For those fascinated with stripper-on-stripper violence, have we got a story for you. Well, technically, it’s stripper-on-cocktail waitress violence. 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. A few minutes later, Bennett was caught on tape tasering McReynolds. McReynolds apparently followed her as she fled the club, so Bennett tasered her again. Police are still looking for Bennett. Note to self: the next time I feel the urge to fight a woman with weapon-length nails—just let her win. A taser to the face evidently causes a black eye. [DListed] Keep reading »

The Story Of The One-Boobed Stripper

Viva Las Vegas is a popular stripper based in Portland, Oregon. A preacher’s daughter, she was raised in the Midwest before she moved to the West, where she worked as a nude dancer for over a dozen years. Eventually, she wondered if it was time to retire. Last year, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After chemo made her hair fall out and a mastectomy left her with one breast, she wasn’t sure what to do. So, she wrote a book about her experiences: Magic Gardens: The Memoirs of Viva Las Vegas. After the lump was removed, extra skin from a cadaver was used to cover the area, but she resisted having her breast rebuilt with an implant. And then, she went back to stripping … [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

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 at a friggin’ Jonas Brothers concert, but the mood at the Spearmint Rhino was not in the least bit joyous and, in fact, was full of sad men sitting alone.

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, after the jump: Keep reading »
