Forget about what you have heard about strip clubs. They are purely entertainment to fit into the general motif of Las Vegas as the entertainment capital of the world. So the idea of a seedy, raunchy, smoke-filled room with lowlifes just waiting to take advantage of you is purely a myth these days.
Consider this though: who is the one person that would make the perfect partner for your night out? You can’t do better than female escorts. They know the best strip clubs in town and more importantly, they act as your beautiful guardian angels in your rookie adventure to a strip club.
Now, forget everything you have heard about strip clubs if you've never been to one. Instead, consider the following as a comprehensive crash course on how to behave. You don't want your experience in a strip club to end badly and in embarrassment, do you?
1. Don't go if you don't have cash to burn
You should understand that strip clubs are there to make as much money as possible while giving you a good time. So you must go there with loads of cash.
Be a good sport and tip the strippers when they do their thing in front of you. They are working girls and the tips you give them is what sustains them. It is bad form to go to a strip club, sit down and just stare at the girls. Who does that?
Even sitting at the bar far from the stage to avoid tipping the girls is unbecoming of a gentleman. You came to a strip club to be entertained. Make the entertainers feel appreciated by giving them tips. Very generous tips would be nice. Thank you.
2. Best stageside manners
There are etiquettes you must observe while sitting by the stage in a strip club.
In the first place, if you don't intend to watch the girls, don't get a front row seat at the stage. This is demoralizing to the ladies. It sends a message that they are not doing their job well.
Secondly, it is not good to just sit and stare with no expression on your face. You have to show the girl on stage you are in the moment. Some form of animation or excitement is expected from you. Show her she is doing a swell job.
For the records, the best way to do that is to throw as much dollar bills as possible her way.
3. Strippers are pros, not sex workers
One of the biggest fictions peddled is that strippers generally make as much money peddling sex. This myth has evolved no thanks to bad movies and television shows.
Here is the plain truth: most Strippers consider themselves as working class ladies. Most of them take their work seriously and expect you to treat them accordingly. What she sells are the sexy, entertaining routines you see. Even when you get a lap dance, don't for one second think you can disrespect them. If the rule says on touching, then don't touch.
Some Strippers might sit with you just to chat. Again, never forget this is part of her job. Buy her a drink and tip her as she is leaving.
4. Watch how you drink
It is common for people to think they can drink beyond their limits and get shitfaced in a Las Vegas strip club. You would be doing everybody and yourself a favor if you don't go down that route.
Sure, drinking is allowed in strip clubs. As a matter of fact, you are encouraged to buy as much drink as you can. Since the drinks tend to be expensive, the establishment and ladies too, make a lot of money if you buy drinks. Here is the thing though: you must know your limits as far as booze is concerned.
If you fail to heed this advice, the management would have no problems throwing you out or call the cops to forcefully remove you. Surely, you don’t want your escort to see you making a fool of yourself.
5. Don't get too personal with the strippers
The best strip clubs are staffed by well-trained ladies who know how to help you unwind. However, you might get carried away by the nice smile and the empathy on her face and begin to get too personal.
Okay, if you are tempted to ask very personal questions like why a nice girl like her is working there, kill the temptation. You don't know anything about her and her history. Chances are, she loves what she is doing and expects you as a patron to respect her choice. Basically, you should never be a moral police in a strip club.
So don't try to make the ladies feel bad by judging them or thinking you have a better offer for them.
On the flip side, don't go bawling your sob story about a bad girlfriend or an ungrateful wife to the strippers. They are not your friends. Sitting there listening to you is a waste of their time if you don't pay for the privilege.
6. Strippers don't have to be with you
If you are a bad tipper, or you don't want to buy drinks for her and all you want to do is talk, don't be surprised if she walks away from you. Perhaps, you might think as a customer, you deserve every consideration from her. But the plain truth is, she is working and if you are not going to put out with cash, she'd move on to a better client.
On the other hand, she might still leave you even if you are doing what is expected of you. Don't jump to conclusions and get offended. There must be a good reason she left. And it might have nothing to do with you.
7. Finally, enjoy yourself to the max
Any strip club worth its salt in Las Vegas would make sure you have an evening never to forget. After all, the whole point of making the decision to go to a strip club is to be entertained right?
And if you play your cards right, you can still get a nightcap with your personal escort back in your apartment. Wouldn’t it be great to have a professional help you unwind? So if you desire this slam dunk ending, don’t forget to do the right thing by requesting for the services of a professional escort before setting out.
