Everyone who’s never been to a strip club before seems to have their own preconceived notions about what it’s like. Thankfully, many of their ideas about what happens late at night at these types of establishments are far from reality. The truth is there are many strip clubs, and each one will have its own set of rules to follow, and staying in line with them will ensure your visit is exciting.
What to Understand About Strip Clubs that Many Don’t Know
Below are some of the lesser-known stereotypes and assumptions about how Las Vegas strip clubs are run. These are important to understand before you decide to visit.
1. Strip Clubs Only Open for Patrons at Night
While many movies and ads advertise strip clubs as late-night party spots, some clubs will also be open during the day. Only some people like to be there during the late hours when the strip clubs are jammed packed with patrons. Keep in mind the afternoons will not be filled with just sad and lonely divorced men. Lots of normal people go to strip clubs during the day. Visiting during the afternoon or early evening hours could be a more relaxed environment for you to enjoy. Often, you will also be able to enjoy a good dinner with your entertainment.
2. You Can’t Touch the Entertainment
Suppose a drunk rando grabs you while out in public; you would be disgusted. Even though a striptease is a dancer, you are still not allowed to take advantage of her in any way that you would not normally do. For instance, would you try hitting a fellow shopper’s breast in Ann Taylor’s clearance section? The answer to that would be “no” and should be that way for all staff at the strip club. Some clubs, however, offer the ability for physical touch with the approval of the stripper. This will often cost a premium fee.
3. It’s Not Like Coyote Ugly
In the movie Coyote Ugly, women would decide they wanted to join in on the fun and get on stage or the bar to start dancing with the workers. In a strip club, however, this is a big no-no. Never get up on stage with the strippers unless you are specifically invited to do so. Even still, this will not be a regular occurrence. It would be best if you remained in your seat while enjoying the entertainment. If not, you may find yourself being escorted out of the establishment by the bouncer.
4. Spend Money Carefully
Another thing to understand about strip clubs is that even though change is technically money, keep your spare change on the dance floor and at the dancers. This isn’t polite and can get you thrown out of the club. The best option is to bring plenty of dollar bills to use. These are appreciated and the easiest way to get the dancer’s attention. If she allows you to place the bills in her outfit, don’t try and “cop a feel” while doing it.
When it comes to choosing music for personal lap dances, there is often a flat fee for songs. However, they will not tell you when those songs end. Instead, pay attention to when the song ends to avoid being charged extra for the dance, even if they told you the flat fee for the dance and song combo before the dancer began.
5. Women Can Enjoy Strip Clubs, Too
A common myth about strip clubs is that it is only for men to enjoy. However, more women are beginning to enjoy visiting these types of establishments. Strippers will not shy away from putting their breasts and bodies in a women’s face just as much as a man’s. If you are visiting a strip club and are uncomfortable with this kind of attention, you can politely say so, and they will leave you alone. On the other hand, men will often need to put more effort into getting attention for the strippers because of the number of men in the club.
Going to a strip club is not always like what most people think it is. Many reputable establishments offer plenty of entertainment, food, good music, and a great time. So it’s important to know what to expect before visiting.
