Today I learned why strippers move like they do...

Guy- Dusk Til Dawn is on. This is why men like strippers. Because they dance just to be sensual.

Me- They dance for the money.

Guy- Doesn't matter, its just a way they move that "normal" women don't.

Me- They move that way because it's how they make money. I bet they don't move that way washing dishes.

Guy- It's part of who they are. It's just how they move. It's natural.

Me- You know a lot of strippers in real life huh? Because you sure know a lot about them. Go to their houses a lot to see them do dishes, do ya? It's like when you talk about "normal" vaginal health and you don't have a vagina.

Guy- Strippers use paper plates.

Me- They still dance for money.

I had to give it to him. I couldn't even rebuttal. I would have spun it around and said, "Well sure... but what about you not having a vagina!?" but it would have just seemed like I was picking a fight and starting a new direction. Sarah was kind enough to show me how a stripper would do the dishes... not that she is one, but she did a damn fine job out there. I will say this... if you go to Sarah's house for dinner, make sure you stay to watch her wash up!

Let's talk about stripping, shall we? Listen, I don't have a problem with strippers. They do what they do and I do what I do. I have a problem if THEY are doing what I do, but that wouldn't be their fault really. I can't imagine a guy picking up a stripper when she's done with her shift and saying, "I am sure you know I'm married/taken/spoken for ..." Fairly certain on this end that if your man steps out on you with a stripper, he is the one to point the finger at.

I've read blog posts, articles, etc. that about how the stripping profession degrades women. When I was a teen I saw one of those afternoon talk shows where a Dr. was discussing how horrible this particular job is for a woman's self-esteem and how horrible an environment it must be to have men taking advantage of you all day.

WHAT?! I won't even pretend to agree with that. If she was forced into the job due to sex trafficking, fine. She gets a pass on this. However,if she went down to the Diamond Girl Gentleman's Club and slipped into her best shimmery g-string and stilettos, she is not being degraded. She could have waited tables. She could have worked the drive thru window at McDonald's. She's performing entertainment and making pretty decent money doing it, if I am to believe this "working my way through law school" stuff.

My ex husband enjoyed going to the strip club. When one of the guys got married, they would make the trip 30 minutes north and spend the evening in nudie girl Heaven. About a week after one of these trips, my best friend (just married) said to me, "I am so pissed at (husband)! Did your husband tell you about their trip to the strippers?!"

I answered in the affirmative. I didn't have a problem with him going. "Did he tell you what they DID there?" she asked. "They were touching the girls. At first (husband) said they just touched her legs, but then I told him I knew more happened, and then he admitted they touched her ass. He's too stupid to know how to lie right. Finally he admitted they touched her boobs too!".

This was a bit of a shock to me. I thought there were rules. We even went as far as to call a local club and get verification from the owner that it is in fact "dancer's discretion". I felt it only right that I should confront my husband when he returned home (from somewhere... probably a strip club). He denied it initially, then realizing his friend was "too stupid to know how to lie right", came clean.

"Strippers are like a fantasy. It's not like it's real." he said.

"It's not wrestling. It's real. And are you saying you FANTASIZE about having to pay a woman to take her clothes off for you? That's pretty pathetic. If you want to pay someone to get naked. Pay me. I will even let you pay me for sex. Leave some money on the dresser when you go to work." I replied.

I would have been completely fine with the whole situation had he had the decency to say, "I like boobs. I even like stripper boobs better than your boobs. Yes, I touched them."

Fair enough. Thanks for the talk!

I went to a strip club in Mexico with my husband several years ago. Strip Clubs really don't bother me. The idea that my husband paid extra for some fem to rub her boobs and ass all over him would bother me. As long as it's just watching, fine. But the "lap dance" thing would annoy the hell out of me. That sort of thing just makes me feel "disrespected". Maybe it's not logical, but it's how I feel.

Strippers use paper plates. I applaud that guy, that's very good.

I'm a man, and I like boobs. There, I said it. I'm nothing if not honest. We all like boobs. We don't know why, we just do. It's a primal, gorilla instinct thing.

As for strip clubs...yeah, I've been to my share of bachelor parties and such. I look, but I don't touch. I don't think it's disrespectful or degrading to the stripper, as long as it's her choice. But my hands (and other parts) are reserved only for my wife. Touching another woman would be disrespectful to her, not to the stripper.

Linda, I've gone with my ex and with a mixed group of friends before. I was irritated by the touching when it came to my ex but more irritated that he lied.

When I went with my friends, one of the guys put money up. A dancer came up and tapped me and gave me the money and said, "I don't dance for women." I said, "Well you're obviously not paying attention to the audience because it's not my money." :) I should have kept it.

He's got his witty moments.

There's nothing wrong with looking. :)

"Strippers use paper plates" LOL.

About fifteen years ago, I came home to my ex after a long trip. Put a $100 bill in her hand and did her on her living room floor while she was still clutching it. Hottest sex of the nineties, I must say.

Gorilla Bananas said...

You mean he turned down the opportunity to pay you for sex? What a jerk! He should have put 50 bucks on the dresser and thrown you onto the bed then and there.

Angie said...


Every once in awhile I remember why I'm his friend. LOL

Angie said...

Inflation is a bitch. In order for that to be hot now, it would need to be like $350. :p

I KNOW! I suppose he felt like he paid enough to have sex with me by being married to me. LOL

What to say about strippers that hasn't already been said here?... hmmkjbsdjhsfb sdi

"Hey Cinnamon... be careful not bumping the laptop while you are grinding up on me.... honey!"

I guess commenting on posts at the strip club is more difficult than it seems.

Angie said...

Having dated someone who couldn't keep their hands off their blackberry for more than 10 minutes at a time, I can imagine they actually ARE texting/facebooking/blogging from the strip club. LOL If I were a stripper I'd be ok with that. Just pay me b*tch!

RCB said...

We all like strippers (that look good)... I like strippers, Steve likes strippers, you like strippers. What we don't want is our husbands, wives, boy slash girlfriend (I mean boy/girlfriend), and so on to go and touch a stranger's merchandise. You were shocked when you found out they could actually touch boobs at that place... well, I was shocked when a few young ladies at the gym asked me if I would strip for them. What! Luckily I can't dance, and I won't strip to country music, so I said no. Anything like that ever happened to you?

Angie said...

I don't know a single woman who hasn't been asked by someone to strip. Sure, it's usually the gynecologist, whatever! Now I feel inferior again! I can't believe you said no. Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed in you. You should have done it, if only to prove that you are not a male chauvinist! (Yes, I realize that it has nothing to do with it but I was hoping to shame you a little for my own entertainment)

:D ;)

RCB said...

I can understand that, and feel free to shame me a little, but you should have seen the ladies... They weren't particularly inspiring if you know what this male chauvinist pig means. The only thing these ladies got moving were my legs. Run Forrest! Good thing I was in shape back then... (Check out my Fifty before Fifty bucket list. There's a narcissistic picture somewhere that no one wants to check out.)

Angie said...

I'm trying to decide if strippers have those nights when they say, "you know I don't feel like taking my clothes off for the guy in the front row... he's not very inspiring." LOL

Also, I checked out the list AND the picture. Either you're a fine looking gentleman or your boobs are FAR larger than I expected! LOL
