Male strippers have bared all on stage...and on Reddit, too.
Here's everything you wanted to know about stripping, but were afraid to ask.
(Come for the stories, stay for the Magic Mike GIFs!)
1. Sometimes there are pigs involved, as 123talkaboutit says.
I worked as a male 'entertainer' for about a year. The craziest thing I ever did was probably when I performed for a local farmer whose daughter was getting married soon. She had me and two colleagues carry around a small pig each (while we were all in just underwear) while her and her friends kissed and caressed the pigs.
It was a very weird experience, we spent 2/3 of the night looking after small farm animals in barely any clothing...
2. Don't get your urethra involved, chandeliermon warns.
I'm a nursing student and my instructor told me of a patient she had who came in with a UTI. He was a male stripper, and his thing was to cath himself and fill his bladder with wine, then urinate it into the women's glasses.
3. dickholecity knows it's not a gig for amateurs.
In college my friend's mom hired me and my friends to be the entertainment at her friend/coworker's birthday. Friend's mom was like 50 and coworker was turning 30. I wasn't a stripper, I didn't even dance, but my friends and I made shitty parkour videos and she said something like, "Just do something like that to wow people," and since I was broke and she gave me $300 I showed up figuring I'd wing it.
But everyone was already trashed when I got there and all these older women were hitting on me pretty heavily. Friend's mom kept encouraging me to lose the shirt and since I really didn't know what the fuck to do to entertain them, I lost the shirt and took shots and did some horrific interpretation of a Magic Mike dance for the mother of a friend I've known since I was 14. I still can't tell if I love or hate that memory.
4. malestripper69 really lives up to his name.
I worked in a gay club. However, girls would always come in, especially during the summer since that was bachelorette party season. Our club had very specific rules about talking to women since majority of the dancers are straight (well, $20 is $20).
It was a slow Sunday night in June. I had only been working there for a couple months. This big group of girls come in and just start tipping a bunch. They said they all wanted to get lap dances. At the club, we are not allowed to give lap dances to girls. Too many guys got caught slipping a finger in or something. I told them that I couldn't do it here but I was available after my shift. Turns out, they rented a suite at a hotel near the club and gave me their number to go do a private show when I was off.
I show up to the hotel room and start doing the lap dance thing. Shit got all hot like one of those Dancin Bear videos. I ended up banging the maid of honor in front of everyone. That was pretty cool. But then I banged the bride in front of everyone. She wasn't even attractive, I just did it to cross it off the list. To make matters even better, they were sisters. Oh and they paid me $300 for the private show.
edit: Oh, and the worst thing about it was the bride found me on facebook two weeks after she got married. She sent em a message thanking me for doing the show and she wishes she was "more sober to remember, but we can always do it again soon." Um, no thanks.
5. There's a scary amount of pressure on both the performers and participants, Nekrosis13 says.
Stripped for a few years off and on privately when I was like 18-22. Lots of women trying to touch you happens, and the first ones to grab your stuff are the last ones you'd want to have grab your stuff.
A few brides were pressured into trying to have sex with me, which I declined. The longer I maintained some degree of chub, the more money I could make, and by the end of the night everyone would be totally hammered.
As most women would be totally drunk by the end of the night, and I'd be pretty tired and annoyed of all the screaming, usually I'd go home without actually going all the way with anyone. Sleeping with a drunk girl you don't know might sound like a great time to most guys, but I dunno, I just felt really bad if I even thought of it.
I did feel sick a few times seeing how the brides were pressured into trying to cheat.
6. demonchefofportland has been straight-up assaulted.
Former male stripper, and current escort here. I have been flat abused, like I was not a human being, by women and women only. I went to one bachelorette party and as soon as I walked in I was greeted by an old lady (70+) grabbing my dick through my outfit, like I was her grandson and she was grabbing my cheek. They were insistent that I let the bride to be, suck my dick. I mean, I'm gay and could not have been less turned on. I took a break and called the company I work through. They sent the man they called "Boyo" down to watch for the rest of the night, and one lady tried to get him to leave so they could "have more real fun". There's nothing more wonderful than a 300 pound, gay Polynesian man standing up for you to some nasty old women that apparently forgot how much objectification sucks.
7. you_me_dupree did some audience research.
Gay men tipped better and were generally behaved for the most part. Women are nuts, especially the married ones
8. Shenanigan-ary did house calls and has some practical advice.
I was a male "on-call" stripper for five years. I didn't work in clubs, and booked by word of mouth and online adverts. Do women get stupid and want to service you? Absolutely. They're drunk and it seems preprogrammed in their brains that every man in the world wants them. I know a few female strippers, and they're amazed with what women try to get away with because they're women. I've had women grab my little guy, tug it, dive at it with their mouth, and try to jam their dirty "white girl wasted" fingers up my ass. Were there blow jobs? Yes. So many blow jobs. But the thing is, you aren't there for you, you're there for the client. You bust it, the fun dies. Imagine what you feel like after rubbing one out after watching porn, then think about that, but with 10-20 women trying to touch it.
I slept with a lot of brides, bridesmaids, mothers, etc. When I look back, it was a really good way to earn money. I would make easy $1,000 a night for a few hours. Free alcohol made it so much better, and you were either going to a very nice house, or a very nice hotel.
