The Birds And The Bees ~ The Dancing Boys That Have Given Us Spring Fever!

DISCLAIMER: When writing this blog, I must have been influenced by a fever or something. The Spring Equinox effects us all differently I guess. I make no apologies. There are plenty of readers who are guilty of sharing my thoughts even when they tend to be a bit on the naughty side. Read at your own enjoyable risk. --Mike

   Let me tell you 'bout the birds and the bees. And the flowers and the trees...And the moon up above...And a thing called love. Well, I don't know how much love we're talking about but emotions, feelings and desires are starting to stir. It's springtime and all of nature is coming alive again. The trees are budding and sprouting green leaves.

   And that's all fine and dandy but I'm more interested in other things that are bulging, springing out of their hiding places, and presenting themselves to the world. And all I'm asking is that they hike up their (not skirt) but shorts a little more, and show their world to me.

   This time of year is a great time to go sight seeing. Find your local places of natural beauty and see what magic this Spring has conjured. Oh I'm sorry, those of you who are naturists probably think I'm referring to the local parks, waterways, mountain trails, etc. No, no, no...

   I'm recommending that you find a place to park your ass at your favorite watering hole that has dancing boys and follow the happy trails while tipping! Yes, that is what Spring means to me. I call that Spring Fever.

   My advice for this horniest of seasons is to simply open yourself up, enjoy and let nature take its course! Look around you and take in all that mother nature and hours at the gym has provided.

   In my world, everywhere I look I see things growing and growing and exploding with life. Adjustments have to be made to provide more room for growth. No, I'm still talking about male strip clubs.

   Grab hold and hang on to all that Spring has to offer. Unless they are going to kick you out of the club, then let go so you can stay a while longer. And be sure and tip extra if you were allowed to hold on longer than expected.

   Be sure and spread and spill seeds for the future. Tip today for more fun tomorrow. Plant a circle of ones around your favorite waistbands.

   Rise to the occasion and meet Spring firmly. Don't pull away, stay strong and meet each thrust that life tries to give you with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

   Let nothing get between you and celebrating this time of year. Bare your soul, among other things. And above all...have some naughty fun!

   I hope these male dancers have raised your temperature to a Spring Fever level. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boys!

What is a pageant boy?

Photo Source: Judas Elliot Facebook Page   Photo by The Drag Photographer
   Over the past few years there has been an emergence of what I call pageant boys. These are guys who enjoy competing in pageants in ways similar to drag competitions, but they present themselves as males, not female illusionists. They are scored in various areas like talent, interview, street clothes, etc. I am glad that this world has opened up and these individuals have a place to express themselves.
   In general the pageant guys do not do anything for me on an erotic-sexual entertainment level. And that is ok, because from what I understand, that is not the purpose of the pageant systems for males as males. The winners go on to represent their community and pageant system and many support worthy causes with fund raisers and other activities. I rarely attend pageants of any type unless I have a close friend who has asked me to attend. It is not my thing. But let me make it clear, I have nothing against pageantry of any kind. There is room for all forms of entertainment and organizational involvement. So then, why do I bring up the subject of pageant boys? Keep reading.
   If you read no further in this blog, please read and understand this paragraph. Promoters, managers, directors, owners, etc., please let your audience know who and what you are promoting. When promoting a show featuring one or more drag queens, there is a universal understanding that there will be female illusionists, dressed to kill, performing lip syncs to music, some show tune classics and other contemporary hits. This is a given. If anyone has been to a drag show before, they will understand this. If a male entertainer is promoted unless it is specifically stated, there is still some confusion. Is he a singer, go-go dancer, male stripper, comedian, ...? We still need to educate some audience members. Your audience will appreciate being informed, and attend the show knowing what to expect, instead of expecting something different. Also, there is less pressure put on the entertainer to try and be everything he thinks everyone wants him to be.

   To the guys who are both male entertainers and male strippers, I ask you to please know your audience and the purpose you were invited to perform. Please realize that if you are promoted as a male stripper, the audience members are there to see a cute/handsome face, bedroom eyes, come here smile, hot body, bouncing cock and balls, and a tight ass. And those are the features that they will be tipping. And please don't get too upset when they look confused if you decide to do a lip sync, or deck out in rhinestones. And most likely, they aren't going to remember the name of the title you hold. And most importantly, unless they are your close friends, never expect them to tip like they would for pecs, abs, dick and ass. It's the nature of the beast.

   Personally, if I happen to be at a club and a pageant style performance is given, my tipping style doesn't change... I tip for the same reasons I would a male stripper when he catches my eye... or, he has a body that takes my breath away.... or, he has a bubble butt that I want to see if I can grab... or, he is horse hung and I want a closer look and maybe do a hit-and-run grope. And although the above might sound crude to some, it is the reality of many audience members. I do tip for one additional reason. I am motivated by truly creative people. So, if a pageant boy has created some type of costume that peaks my interest, I do tip for that. One such entertainer who has been blessed with creativity in this way that I do follow is Judas Elliot (above and top). Of course, as you can see, he is creative but damn sexy as well.


   I have a friend who is a leader in the pageant world, who I admire and truly enjoy and appreciate his friendship. When called upon, he can remove the pageant attire and persona and become one sexy mother fucker as a male stripper. He knows the difference between the pageant audience and the male stripper audience. I hired him for a local gig that I was a part of a few years ago and he was the hit of the night, and made a nice haul in tips. There was no lip syncing. And the only package he brought to the event was the big one between his legs...covered very sexy in leather I might add. He knew his audience and performed accordingly.

   I post this blog because I witnessed a bit of unnecessary drama this past week that could have been avoided if the roles of male entertainers and male strippers, and their differences could have been made clear. I would like to know the opinions of others. I think this is a topic worthy of discussion in the field of exotic male dancers. Feel free to make a comment in the comments section below. You can also contact me through the Males In Motion website by clicking here.
   Until next time, whatever type audience you happen to be a member of at the time, tip the boyz!!! Whether they are pageant boys or male strippers, there is a lot of work that goes into providing you with quality entertainment. And who knows, one of those pageant boys may lead a system that supports a cause or service that you might find yourself in need of one day.

It's All About Dick

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital
   As a photographer who creates images used to promote the exotic male dancer entertainment industry, it is important that these images capture the attention of my target market. That specific target market is gay men and straight women who enjoy male strippers, go-go boys, male pole dancers, male revues, and male eye candy. That audience likes dick and ass. For that reason, I often dress the models in Andrew Christian underwear. The reason is simple. AC underwear enhances 'the boys', kisses the ass cheeks and as a result, assists in making my images achieve their visually sensual goals. I've placed some of my images and those of other photographers in this blog for you to decide for yourself. Do you agree?

   Andrew Christian underwear is designed to display the dick and ass at their best. And it does. The penis and balls are pulled forward and put on display . The fabric hugs the head and shaft of the penis so that a glimpse is seductively presented in the image. This is one tease that I go for in creating images that motivate customers and fans to attend events where exotic male dancers are featured.

   It is my personal opinion that the design of Andrew Christian underwear can help to create an illusion of a longer penis to those who might be seeking such an enhancement. See for yourself, have a friend try on different brands of underwear,including Andrew Christan, and model them for you. That would be a fun activity anyway, just remember to make a comparison, before you get sidetracked into 'other things'. Warning: The sight of a man wearing a pair of AC underwear might cause you to engage in activities that will result in the removal of said underwear.

   Because I feel the underwear can make a contribution to the success of exotic male dancers, I chose to become an advertising affiliate with Andrew Christian in 2017. This decision was made because I believe in the product and its benefits to male dancers. You will see ads featuring their underwear in my blog and on my website this year. Anyone who has followed the brand for any length of time, knows that they consistently feature sexy male models in ads, videos, books, etc. You can view each of these on the AC website. These same models have become celebrities in their own right and make special appearances in bars and clubs...wearing the AC brand underwear! Do you have a favorite? I do. I've always favored Cory Zwierzynski (below).

    Many of you may have competed in their Trophy Boy or model contests. My first introduction to Andrew Christian was through such a contest. Jake Hauser worked with AC for a time after winning one of the contests. I had followed Jake previously and during that time with the Men Of Skin out of Kansas City, MO. I am a fan of the Men Of Skin and have photographed them many times.

   I also use other brands of underwear in my photography costumes but I recommend to all exotic male dancers to have at least one pair of Andrew Christian underwear in their garment bag. The AC underwear helps them to provide a wow factor that the customers/fans will enjoy and we hope encourage them to place more tips in the waistband.

   Until next time, try on a pair of Andrew Christian underwear. check out the sale tab on their website. And customers/fans don't forget to show your appreciation by tipping the dancing boys!

We love how AC underwear looks on exotic male dancers!
