Part Three: Your stories about strip clubs…as a performance-enhancing drug?
Somebody wants to hear your thoughts on strip clubs. Not all your thoughts, just a few. To get you started, here are some excerpts from a crazy project started by journalist Susannah Breslin. Tweet
Whether you go to strip clubs or not, Breslin's project is worth visiting to see what other guys have to say about them.
Ever been to a strip club? Duh.
So, how’d it go? I once went with a college prof friend. When the stripper tried to tease one beast at a time, he yawned and said, “Eh, seen one, seen ’em both.”
And if ten-dollar bottles of beer have kept you away, have you ever wondered why so many other guys go? OK, probably not.
But whether you go to strip clubs or not, the “Letters From Men Who Go To Strip Clubs” Project is worth visiting to see what other guys have to say about them:
Sometimes I go to stripjoints with my wife. While I do enjoy the extra attention that the strippers pay me when I’m accompanied by another woman and the erotic thrill of seeing my wife being aroused, I have to admit that I enjoy the envious attention of the men as well. In effect, I’m broadcasting that my wife is so sexually adventuresome that she’ll come out to strip clubs with me and even enjoy the sexual attention of the performers: I’m gonna get royally laid tonight.
Usually this ends up with me asking them to marry me. Then the music is over…
I like to talk to them, get them to talk dirty, ask them about what kind of sex they have, and tell them about my own kinky desires. I try to keep it sexy. I don’t want to take the edge off by asking them any questions about their “real” life – and usually this erotic dialogue it ends up with me asking them to marry me. Then the music is over and I backtrack like crazy, saying, “I want to but I can’t,” and then they walk away – what a perfect relationship.
The “Letters From Men Who Go To Strip Clubs” Project was started by journalist Susannah Breslin, who says of herself and her work, “I cover the business of sex.” To which strip-club aficionados say, “Less cover, more sex, please”
