Do women at bachelorette parties and strip clubs really give blowjobs and such?

At a bachelorette party or ladies night out is it really common to see women taking turns sucking off the make stripper or are all those pics just staged porn shoots? Seriously.

If your wife or SO told she had fellated a male stripper is that a deal breaker?

I've never seen this done at any of the bachelorette parties I have been to or at the two ladies nights I have been to.

I have, however, heard of guys getting oral or sex from the stripper at a bachelor party (from my husband).

My wife and I went with another couple to a strip joint years ago. The place featured female strippers downstairs, and male strippers upstairs. Our wives wanted to spend some time upstairs, looking at the boy toys, and dragged us guys along with them.

There was a bachelorette party going on, taking up the front row around the performers, and Oh My God were they rowdy! Jumping onto the stage, getting pushed back by the bouncer, daring each other to push the boundaries, reaching out to stroke the performers, including their penises, and one gal did definitely try to wrap her mouth around one dancer's manhood but got interrupted by the bouncer before she succeeded.

Contrast that behavior to the silent, fixed stares of the male audience downstairs as they watched the ladies gyrate around.

My mind boggled. But the bartender upstairs said that was typical; the gals got really, really rowdy when they were there in a group with a few drinks in them, and generally engaged in behavior that would get a guy arrested if he tried it on the female performers downstairs.

Anecdotal, to be sure. But not what I expected at all, watching a bunch of gals interacting with the beefcake.

I once heard a stand up comic do a routine on this very phenomenon---It was one of the funniest, yet totally accurate (from my limited observations) bits I have ever heard...........

I wish I had some idea who the comic was, but this was several years back, and I dont recall where I saw it at.

Ex-stripper here

Not common.

Not unheard of.

Less likely in public venues than private parties.

Sometimes, women react strongly to the "shoe's on the other foot" aspect of ogling naked men. The protected nature of a group setting seems to increase this by reducing a woman's fears of 'sending the wrong message' to an aroused male.

More like "women haven't had decades of experience in this venue and don't understand the etiquette and overreact." Kind of like when you take Jethro to the white tie ball - he ain't had the home training.

Personally, I suspect that the biggest factor is what Qadgop said: "Behaviour that would get men arrested". I imagine that there are a lot of men who'd like to act that way with female strippers, too, but don't because they know they'd get arrested for it. Since the women can get away with it without getting arrested, they do so (or at least, some of them do).

Yeah, because men never assault or attack women when they're outside of strip clubs. Let's face facts--there are people of both genders who are classy and who aren't.

I'm still shocked that there are women paying for the privilege of sucking dick. Really? REALLY?

I never saw actual oral sex, but I have seen a LOT of women get their hands inside the jockstrap, and also kiss the guys backside, etc.

They get away with a hell of a lot more than men do, no doubt.

Usually (at least in Oregon) men strip down to a speedo or G-string, whereas women go "the full monty". Since the "dancers" are not fully naked, its legal (?) to grope the men, but when the women reach inside the speedo, the bouncers pull them off. The men also dance through the crowd of women to get their tips. However, I have seen several times were women have had a few too much and attempt to do things mentioned in this thread.

Why do I have so much experience with male strip shows? Back in college and before I was married, I batted clean up at these events. I have yet to find an easier (free) way to hook up with a (decent looking) woman in less than 15 minutes then to hang out after the "Show". They're all turned on and ready to go.

I'd advise spending hours at the gym, getting some rhythm, a jam box, and some baby oil, and posting an ad in the back of your local weekly rag or craigslist.

You're actually closer to the truth here than you think. The reason men are relatively reserved at the strip club while women go apeshit is that aggressive male sexuality is threatening to women. A stripper I know has told me several times that she's afraid of getting jumped coming out of the club as it is. The idea of dozens of men grasping and pawing at women would scare the death out of the dancers. Women who gang rush the Chippendales, on the other hand, aren't seen as threatening--most men are pretty sure they aren't going to be assaulted. (Yes, I realize it happens, but there aren't stories of woman-on-man rape in the paper every day.) Aggressive man in the strip club = dangerous. Aggressive woman in the strip club = isn't that what you were going for?

Ron White has a bit about a bachelorette party going on during one of his shows. I don't know if that's the same bit you're remembering. It doesn't involve a stripper, but it does involve a 12-inch chocolate penis.

I don't get it either. Every time I suggest a "donation" after the fact, I get strange looks. I'll have to send my gf a link to this thread.

To answer the OP's other question - yes, those are staged. Just like Captain Stabbin/The Teacher one/ etc.

A friend of mine used to work part time as a stretch limo driver. He said that when he was picking up bachelorette parties from stripclubs he used to get some unbelievable offers.

I mean, speaking as a woman, I know that if I got a hankering to blow someone, it wouldn't be all that hard. Or, er, it would be hard. You know what I mean. I certainly wouldn't approach the opportunity with, "Let me throw wads of cash at you and then you can blow your wad on me!" Let's preface the evening with the blowee buying me a few drinks at first.

For my 25th B-day party I went to a 'Lady's' night at a local club.

The grand finale was when the 'ugliest' (subjectively) girl in the audience was pulled up on stage for the pleasure/opportunity of going under the towel one of the dancers had on with her teeth and removing his g-string while her friends cheered her on.

She totally went for it so while I can't say for sure she was sucking the guy off she had her mouth really, really close to his junkal region under the cover of a towel.

The point is not that you're blowing "anybody". It's that you're blowing this stud beefcake fantasy who you would probably never be able to get close to in real life. Men don't go to strip clubs to watch women who look like their wives and girlfriends.

You mean there aren't a bunch of guys on a boat who pick up extremely large-breasted women, take them on the boat, have anal sex with them, and then throw them off the boat? And nobody ever calls the cops because they got tossed into shark infested waters? Goddamn it - there go my vacation plans.

Hmmm, I don't know, the women I've seen at strip clubs aren't typically mega-hot, just average healthy young women. The lineup of girls didn't seem out of line for a college classroom, although with a few weeded out--those over 40 and too heavy. So maybe kick out the bottom 25% of the college class, and there you've got your strip club lineup.

Eh, I've never been to a strip club for girls but I've been to a gay one with male dancers and they were definitely well within my league.

I think some of you are forgetting that not all women are beautiful, young, slim and thus able to get any man for free. Guys, I guarantee you I could find some pictures online of women you wouldn't accept a blowjob from.

Yes some private parties have guys getting their horns honked. I have been at a couple but that is generally one that hired hookers as opposed to dancers.

I think you underestimate the male libido. Would we prefer to get a blowjob from Jessica Alba? Definitely. Would we accept a blowjob from Roseanne Barr? Yeah, probably.

Point of fact: Roseanne claimed that when she started out in comedy she made so little money she used to supplement her income by hooking on the side. So not only will men accept a blowjob from someone like Roseanne Barr, they'll pay for it too.

Two antidotes:

My wife went to such a show once and "won" the right to towel off the dancer. Other women got to do other sort of stuff but no BJs that I heard of.

For a bachelor party a bunch of us went to a strip club in DC (I was designated driver so I only watched from afar) where they take it all off and they will get very, very close if you are tipping. Let's just say you can have a good vaginal inspection for 5 bucks. We were all abruptly thrown out when one of our group decided to stick out his tongue at the right moment.

The male strippers are the object of the female crowd's adulation. This, in and of itself, makes them more sexually desirable to women. That's what some ev psych types believe, anyway.

I'm inclined to agree with them. IME, the best way to get a woman is to have other women clamoring for you. It's also easier to get a beautiful woman when you already have one. Often they'd rather poach some other gal's guy than find someone unattached.

And don't forget that there were studies that showed that women's testosterone increases when they drink, while men's stays the same or decreases. Anecdotally, I know quite a few women who say they horny when they drink. I have never heard a man say the same. In fact, I know a few who complain that certain parts of their anatomy don't work right when they are drunk.

I agree and would add the women are showing off for each other, trying to show that they are the 'wildest' one.

I've heard of men complaining about both at once. "Drink increaseth the desire but decreaseth the performance", as I believe Shakespeare said.

Damn. I've heard of men not being able to perform but not about them being hornier because of alcohol. That's got to be a real bitch.

That you do lie so late?

PORTER: Faith, sir, we were carousing till the second cock; and
drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things.

MACDUFF: What three things does drink especially provoke?

PORTER: Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir,
it provokes and unprovokes: it provokes the desire, but it takes
away the performance. Therefore much drink may be said to be an
equivocator with lechery: it makes him, and it mars him; it sets
him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him and disheartens
him; makes him stand to and not stand to; in conclusion,
equivocates him in a sleep, and giving him the lie, leaves him.



I'm not quite sure what nose-painting is. Anyway, this could make for an excellent Levitra ad: Stand to on your schedule! (They'll probably leave out the part about carousing till the second cock.)

Was this in Vegas? A friend of mine told me the exact same story--he was going to meet his wife and her friends at a club, where the men's area was downstairs and the women's upstairs. He said that the male patrons downstairs behaved like they were at a funeral, and the female patrons upstairs were completely out of control, nearly molesting the male performers.

I think the bard meant the whole "nose/face flushing red when you drink". From vasodilation, and in serious alcoholics, from capillary damage. See WC Fields.

Larry Miller, does he do a lot of sit-com cameos?

I think he has been a guest on "King Of Queens" a couple of times, if he is who I am thinking of................

Thanks for the help, Matthew
