Show Me Your's And I'll Show You Mine! - Our Club Review Of Area 18 ~ Tulsa, OK

   That's what he said. "Show me your's and I'll show you mine." Of course, we were talking about our favorite home bar or club. Isn't that what you were thinking? Well, one of our mottos at Males In Motion is "It's All About The Tease!" So, staying true to our motto, I had to tease you a bit with the title of this blog. But if you'll stick around and read, look and watch, you'll find a few sweet morsels that you might just want to try. And I will give you a new perspective on the city of Tulsa. But more importantly, I want to give you a glimpse of Area 18, the club that I most often refer to as my home bar.

   Every visit that Jay and I make to Area 18 is like a family reunion...I mean the good parts of a family reunion. We walk in the door and are greeted by Craig, a long time friend. We step up to the bar and Brandon who has been a favorite bartender friend for years serves us up some great drinks. Of course, there is also hottie Chris behind the bar. Either way, you'll be taken care of with smiles and maybe nipple views. Did I just say 'nipple views'? All I know is that I tend to tip more when there are nipple views. ***hint, hint***
   Throughout the night Jay and I are greeted by friends which we call family. Friends like Kurt, Brian, Brandon, Kent, Adrian and many more. If I keep listing, I know I'll forget someone. There is of course, the required and enjoyed hugging. There's always the needed catching least things that weren't posted on Facebook. But sometimes those posts lead to interesting question and answer sessions. The best part is that I know if we were to over indulge and throw back a few shots, etc., there is always someone there who cares for us and will make sure we get to where we need to go safely. Of course, that may be after they've drawn nasty words and pictures with permanent markers on our faces. Now, who would do something like that? Only good friends, that's who. And I am kidding, they wouldn't do that...maybe.

   We all know that I couldn't call a bar my home bar without male dancers. And there have been some mighty fine ones swing through Area 18 over the past few years. I have happily been able to enjoy some of their talents and assets. On our most recent visit, there were three that could hold their own with any crowd at any club. I am speaking of K.O., Ballers and Jett. That combination on one night provides something for many appetites and proclivities. I enjoyed watching and strategically tipping all three. Photographer Rick Craig has captured many of the Area 18 male dancers in his creative and sensual photos. We featured Rick in a past blog. Click here after you've read this blog and enjoy some of his work.

   The way the whole process works at Area 18 is the boys dance on the bar. They move around dancing, gathering tips and interacting with the customers. At one end of the bar is a pole and they take turns riding the pole. (Yes, I said that. And in my fantasy world, well, ... use your imagination.) The dancers are supported and enhanced by the Area 18 lighting system design, and the amazing skills of DJ Wes Bigfeather. All the ingredients come together for a quite enjoyable visual, musical and physical experience. And to us it is one worth driving a few miles to enjoy!

   DJ Wes has been a favorite DJ at several of my favorite Tulsa clubs over the years. And more importantly, he's a good friend. When I hear his voice over the sound system, I know I'm home. Wes, I apologize to you because the pics I took of you all turned out blurry. I had already enjoyed a couple of Brandon's cocktails by the time I took your pic. I promise they looked clear when I was taking them, but I'm thinking the effects of the alcohol must have canceled out the not-quite-there focus I had on the camera. Next time, I'll take your pic first.
   Each time we visit Area 18, there is always something unexpected that occurs. This last time, our friend Jason was the center of attention for one gentleman who he knew from his past. The pursuit was hilarious and Jason has stories to tell. And I was introduced to a new friend who is a crossdresser. For some reason, she kept taking my hands and having me squeeze her boobs. Now there was no real anatomical breasts inside, and it doesn't do anything for me in a sexual way. But hey, if I helped make someone happy for the night, well, my work was done!

   In the pic above Jett is wearing a pair of underwear from the Area 18 Andrew Christian Underwear Store. Yea, I'm a fan of Jett and those underwear. I love how they pull 'the boys' out there and put them on display, front and center. I told Jett that he made a great choice in underwear. That pair on Jett talks to me. They say, "get your dollars out, move your hand closer and start tucking them right now!" And I did! I would never disobey a pair of underwear that talks to me. Would you? The other great thing about the Andrew Christian Underwear Store is that several of those AC sexy male models make appearances at Area 18.
   A special thanks goes out to Shannon and Laura for providing this amazing playground where we can be ourselves and have so much fun! And of course, thank you for making male dancers your featured entertainment. I do know the long hours and hard work it takes to keep a place like this going. All of us at Males In Motion are grateful for all you and the staff at Area 18 do to keep the boys dancing.

   If you find yourself in T-town living on Tulsa time, stop in at Area 18 and enjoy the local hospitality, hot male dancers, and strong drinks. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boyz. Tip extra if they do a good job riding the pole. And remember to tip for nipple views at the bar. Oh yea, before I forget, Craig, it's time for another meal at Freeway Cafe.

Yes, But He Was Hell In Bed!
Hellin Bedd's Jock Night
Axis Nightclub ~ Columbus, OH

Photo Source: Various Facebook Pages
   Before traveling to Columbus, OH this Fall, I researched clubs, shows and venues that would be featuring exotic male dancers. There was one advertisement that stood out for two reasons. First, it read "6 Hunky Men" and second, it also stated that Hellin Bedd's Jock Night is the Biggest Longest Male Revue in the city. I like six. I like big. I like long. That was enough bait to lure me in! Friday night was going to be spent with 6 Hunky Men and Hellin Bedd at Axis Nightclub.

   We found quick and easy parking in a pay lot for $5 a few blocks from Axis Nightclub. My partner, a local Ohio friend, and I arrived a little early to the club. There was another show going on so we stepped across the street to Union Cafe and had an adult beverage. I had a JACK and coke. Yes, mostly Jack, and some coke. A strong drink that was most welcomed. I was feeling the butt ache of a 13 hour road trip. (Dirty minds, I know butt ache for you means something else.) I'm always ready to watch the dancing almost-naked boys. And since I am actually a alcohol light weight, the JACK and coke had induced a vacation relaxation. I was happy, feelin' no pain, and ready for the show.

   At the appropriate time we stepped back across the street and entered Axis Nightclub. We paid a $5 cover and then found our way into an area where there is a stage and a lower area that is a dance floor. For this show, the dance floor area was where the majority of the audience would stand, watch and tip the dancing boys. Opposite to the stage is a raised area where a bar is located. You can also watch the show from there or from two higher walkways on each side of the room. The three of us found a seating area along one wall where we could view the stage, and I could place my tired ass on a cushy seat.

   I have been around drag queens for much of my adult life, and currently have several friends who perform, entertain and compete in pageants. I have also been known to photograph one or two of them from time to time. I have noticed that there are four different types of drag queens: entertainers, pageant competitors, divas and tragedies. Now, a drag queen can be a mix, but my favorite type is the entertainer. That is exactly what you get with Hellin Bedd. Combine her witty reparte with 6 hunky male dancers and you're in for one hell of a show! And that is exactly what we experienced.
   Each of the six male dancers took turns coming out on the stage when introduced by Ms Bedd, and stripping from a costume down to their undies. The male dancers for the night were Johnny W Dangerously, Trayce Shadows, Trouble, Gavin Beck, Tyler Devereaux and Xander. I'll have to admit, I was giddy like a little school girl. I had been following each of these dancers on social media for several months. And you know how everyone has a type of guy that they are really into? Well, each of these guys are my type. Yes, with this group of six, I will change my definition to match each one depending on which one is in front of me at the time. "Catch them all!"

Photo Source: Johnny W. Dangerously Facebook
   Let's break it down now. Johnny W Dangerously is the definition of sexy. It's no wonder he is a popular dancer in the Ohio clubs, as well as those in surrounding states. I've featured Johnny in several blogs. So, you can definitely say he is popular with Males In Motion as well.

Photo Source: Trayce Shadows Facebook
   Trayce Shadows has not been dancing that long but he is already stirring up interest...among other things. All you have to do is look into his eyes and you'll fall under his spell. I promise, I did look up higher and see his face at least once or twice, and saw his eyes. Yes, the lower view is quite nice. (Excuse me while I take a short break here and do some "remembering". I'll be back in a moment.)

Photo Source: Tyler Devereaux Facebook
   I was glad to see that Tyler Devereaux brought that booty out of retirement and is performing again. With his boy-next-door good looks and athletic body, he can definitely fulfill many of our jock fantasies. And did I mention his ass! OMG!

Photo Source: Trouble Facebook
   I don't know how much Trouble he actually gets into, but all I'm going to say is that Trouble tends to cause a certain kind of lap trouble. It must be quite embarrassing for many a gay man who has had to wait a little while after Trouble has performed before getting up from his seat. Tent city would need to be dismantled. Can you imagine all the male members of the audience walking around with boners? I can, but I have been told I have a vivid imagination. And thanks Trouble for the inspiration.

Photo Source: Gavin Beck Facebook
   Several months ago I was scrolling through my Facebook posts and came across some pics of this hot dancer that made me pause and stay awhile. The pics were very creative and sexy as hell. I had to find out more about this dancer. I discovered it was Gavin Beck. People often use the phrase, "...even better in person." Well, honey, if it is possible... Gavin Beck is even better in person. I'll just say it out plain and clear, he causes me to have naughty thoughts. And yes, I have downloaded and saved every pic of his that I could find. Don't judge me. You've been lost in your obsession before.

   If I understood correctly, this was the last night that Xander would be dancing. He has moved into the world of porn under the name of Craig Cameron. You can catch him at I am glad I had the opportunity to check him out on stage. He was a very nice addition to Hellin Bedd's stable of studs.

The video clips below were taken that night. They are poor quality because I was a tired lazy ass and didn't get closer. But they show you that it was a sexy and fun show!

   I've come to believe that a night with Hellin Bedd and her 6 hunky studs is magic! Nothing can stand in the way of this theatrical tease! I loved it. I enjoyed Hellin's verbal slays, and fell in love with the dancing boys! If you find yourself in Columbus, for Hellin Bedd. Believe me, she gets around! And there are sure to be some hotties in her company. You'll enjoy the show! Hellin (Brett Richards), to you I say, "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" Thank you for all you do to keep the boys dancing! It is enjoyed and appreciated!
   At the time I wrote this blog, Gavin Beck was in Facebook jail...naughty boy! Please keep crossing the line. I want more of your sexy pics saved on my hard drive. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boyz! And the fabulous MC's like Hellin!

Meltdown In Columbus
O'Connors Club 20 ~ Columbus, OH
Club Review

Johnny, Grayson & Mason     Photo Source: O'Connors Club 20
   An extended weekend in the Columbus, OH area was scheduled several months in advance. This weekend was going to be one for fun and merriment. It was a time to let off steam, and watch the boys "wiggle". My partner and I were going to visit one of our closest friends. And of course, I would research and find out which clubs had male dancers, and which male dancers I wanted to see and tip. There was one that I knew would be at the top of my list, Johnny W Dangerously. I have been following Johnny online for the past year or more. I have also chatted with him several times. He was featured in my Valentine's blog back in February. And then again in the "Boys Of Columbus" blog this past summer. I have described Johnny as the hardest working exotic male dancer I know. The guy dances almost every night of the week. His schedule takes him around Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and more.

   When determining which clubs to visit while in the Columbus area, I saw that Johnny was going to be at O'Connors Club 20. That sealed the deal, and on Sunday night, I was there for the "Show n' Tail" night, hosted by Abortia Clinique. There were two other dancers featured for the night as well, Mason Dickson and Grayson Knight-Lites. I'll discuss those two later in this blog but for now, back to Johnny. When he stepped out to do a meet-and-greet with the customers, I recognized that tight body, handsome face, and well, the way he is able to stretch the fabric in the front of his underwear.

Johnny W Dangerously     Photo Source: Johnny's Facebook Page
(Note: This pic was not taken while we were there. I borrowed it because I love the way he looks in this pair of underwear.)
   As usual I was in my own world, enjoying my beer, talking with my partner and friend, looking forward to the show that was about to begin. Then Johnny moves to our table and starts to speak. This deep sexy voice fills the air and I immediately experience a meltdown. It was similar to one of those situations when a hot guy with a British, Australian or French Canadian accent begins to speak. Only with Johnny's voice, it's one of those times that you just want to lay your head against his chest so you can hear his voice and feel the vibrations as he speaks. Yea, I couldn't tell you a single word he said, but I wanted him to just keep talking.
   The show started and Johnny was the first dancer up. Dressed in shirt, tie, slacks, etc., he looked ready to do a door-to-door sales pitch. Of course, I was already sold. And then the clothes came off and he was down to perfectly fitting underwear. I enjoyed finding new locations to tip my dollar bills. I could also see that my partner and our friend were enjoying Johnny's talents as much as I was.

Mason     Photo Source: Mason Dickson Facebook.
   Before I had fully recovered from my Johnny crush, Mason steps out and does his first session. I'm not sure which costume he wore first but I remember him stepping out as a doctor at one point. By that time, my heart was beating so fast, I was ready for a check up. Tall, slim, good looking and let's just say it, hung. He flashed that great smile and it was time for another meltdown.

Mason     Photo Source: Mason Dickson Facebook.
   I know I sound a bit dramatic, but hey, I'm gay, it's my right. And seriously, I had just watched two very hot men strip down to their underwear. And then tipped them both up close and personal. By this point, I was as they say, melted "butta"!

Grayson     Photo Source: Grayson Knight-Lites Facebook
   There was one more dancer for the night and he was introduced as Grayson. During one of his sessions, Grayson eventually was wearing only a pair of those assless briefs. He had begun this session at the other side of the room and I was watching and definitely enjoying the show. A couple of dollar tips accidentally fell from his waistband. He turned with his ass toward the men who had tipped, bent over and picked up his tips giving them a view of that sexy not-really-covered ass.

Grayson     Photo Source: Grayson Knight-Lites Facebook
   That is exactly the show I wanted to see. So, when he moved over toward me, I threw my tip money in the floor. He grinned, turned around and bent over to pick up his tips. Well, HELLO, and yes, I right then and there had a third meltdown. He raised back up laughing. I laughed a little too, but my mind had already gone off in fantasyland, and I decided to stay there for a few minutes. In his next session, he would come out with the one-sided underwear. Yea, I took another visit to that fantasyland then too.
   My favorite type of venue for exotic male dancers is the neighborhood bar. O'Connors Club 20 has that feeling. It is smaller, more intimate, and casual. The bartender, J.R., the staff and customers were all friendly and treated us like family. It wasn't the first bar that I visited during my weekend in Columbus, but it is the one I wanted to write about first. The "Show 'N Tail" night was definitely one of my favorite of the weekend. If ever again in Columbus, OH, and I hope to be, I will definitely visit O'Connors Club 20. There was no cover, and the drink prices fit right in with other similar bars that I have visited. We found convenient parking on the street near the club.
   Special thanks to Johnny, Mason and Grayson for helping us have such a fun night. I hope to see each of you again. For now, I'll be keeping up with your adventures online. Thanks to Abortia Clinique (Bryan Richardson) for putting together a great show. Until next time, be sure and tip the boys. And if they have an ass like Grayson's, throw it in the floor and enjoy watching them pick it up.

Five Photo Tips For Exotic Male Dancers
It's All About Getting Attention!

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital for Males In Motion
Exposing The Male Dancer ~ Guidelines For Social Media Promotion Part Two: Five Photo Tips
   If you are planning for a short career as an exotic male dancer, then this blog will not be of much value to you. I'd stop here and not read any further. However, if you are wanting to dance to supplement your income for several years, or help pay your way through college, or you are wanting to buy a new car, or other item on your wish list, keep reading. And if you are a customer or fan of male dancers, well, I've thrown in some eye candy to keep you interested.
   I have been a photographer for fifteen plus years. I have a marketing background and Bachelor's in business. For the past few years, all my work has been focused on entertainment and promotion. And as you might guess, the majority of this has been working with exotic male dancers and male models, all for the purpose of promoting the exotic male dancer entertainment industry. I say this simply to provide some background as to why I feel I might have some insight into successful photos for exotic male dancers to use in social media. I have five tips that I want to share with exotic male dancers about using photos for promotion.
   Let's put it out there right from the beginning. The purpose of photos in social media for the exotic male dancer is to draw attention to yourself. The type of attention that entices the customers to attend your performances. And once there, they are motivated to tip you. And that leads to you making cash to pay the bills, travel or purchase those items that have been on your wish list! That is a lot for a promotional pic to live up to. These photos can not be just another 'nice pic'!

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital for Males In Motion
   Part of being a successful exotic male dancer is the tease. If you post a pic of your junk boldly displayed for all to see, you've shot the proverbial wad and everyone has seen it. You've just lost one of your most valuable tools in enticing the customers to attend your performances. You want to remain a mystery. That doesn't mean that you can't take pics wearing a pair of underwear that leaves very little to the imagination. Or even a sneak peek when pulling down your underwear and showing just a bit. There is only one exception to this that I can think of. If you have been blessed and are a true King Kong. Well, then just to see if it is real or not, some customers will show up. But you can make a hell of a bulge or imprint in underwear that will do the same thing. This has nothing to do with being modest, this is just good business sense. Curiosity and mystery are two very powerful drawing cards when working to bring customers through the door.

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital for Males In Motion
   Every day I see a post on Facebook where the reader is asked which one 1-5?, or some other number depending on how many hot guys are in the pic. Of course, they are basically asking "which one would you do?" If you are the hottest, most well-endowed, best body, most handsome, etc., etc., then great! But if you are not, then you have just devalued your visual attraction power. A customer who before thought you were the hottest dancer at the club may see this and now think, well, he isn't as hot as that other guy in the pic. He was motivated to seek you out and place dollar bills in your waistband, but now he probably still has you on his list, but he'll be looking for that other guy first. Be careful who you are in pics with. Make sure either you are alone, or you have an advantage over any others. Play it smart.

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital for Males In Motion
   When you have the say-so over what pics are used, make sure your best assets are in the pic. If you have a flat ass but a big bulge, then you of course want to make sure that bulge is the feature attraction. If on the other hand, you are of average size like most of us, but have that amazing bubble butt, then yes, turn around or at an angle where the globes are presented in all their glory. I see a lot of pics of guys with great butts who do just this. They know where their money maker is located.

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital for Males In Motion
   I like looking at pics of hot men in their underwear as much as the next gay guy or straight woman. But what really captures my attention is when that underwear is accompanied by costume accessories that play into one of my fantasies. Everyone who follows my blogs know that one of my favorite costumes is the cowboy. Put on cowboy boots and a hat and hot underwear, and you've captured my attention, and the dollars in my pocket will soon find their way into your nether regions. Behind the cowboy, there are other looks that I enjoy as well. I like the look and smell of leather so if you are wearing a harness, chaps, leather thong, motorcycle jacket, leather shorts, black boots, etc., I'm going to look your direction. Some fans are motivated by sports...a jockstrap, baseball pants and cap, sweatpants or shirts, team jerseys, etc. I also like superheroes on guys who have amazing chests and abs. There are many, many more. I could write several blogs just on costumes. Find one that fits your body type, and that sparks an interest in the customers. Use it in photos. One word of advice that I want to make is that make sure it doesn't hide your body. Lift it up, move it around, cut it off, etc., whatever you need to do to make sure that the sexy body is the star.

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital for Males In Motion
   It is difficult to make a list of poses, costumes, lighting, etc., that will grab attention but if you want your pics to be successful and work toward your benefit, that is what you have to do. I scroll through many pics each day. There are pics that I see and I keep scrolling on down the page. There are pics that I see and I stop and click 'like' or 'love' on them. Then there are pics that I like so much that I think others will like them so I 'share' them. The last category is the best category and those are the pics that I do all of the above and then I download and save them to my hard drive because I think they are so damn hot, or unique, or eye catching, etc. In order to reach this status on a pic, you are going to have to do some thinking and planning with your photographer. Work together and come up with some ideas. In a single photo shoot, you may only come up with one shot that you feel this way about, but that one shot will bring a lot of attention your way when posted, and eventually it is hoped, will lead to more tips.
   I have added a few pics below that have caused me to 'like' or 'love', 'share', and download to keep. Do they affect you the same way? They may or may not. We all have different likes, tastes and preferences. What I consider attractive or interesting may be completely different than what you think. If you know your audience or customer base, you know what will push their buttons.
   Until next time, make and posts some great pics! Be sure and tag me so I can enjoy them too! (And for the customers who have read this, don't forget to tip the boys!) Feel free to add a comment below about this blog. Or, if you want, send me an email.

Give Me Some Skin!
Club Boomerang ~ Wichita, KS
Club Review

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital
   During a recent weekend I had the privilege of seeing some of my favorite male dancers at two locations. The first was in Wichita, Kansas at Club Boomerang. The club hosted the Men Of Skin out of Kansas City, and three of their finest were present: Zion, Ranger and Leo. As an added bonus, Club Boomerang has in-house dancers as well. This night Austin, dancer and dancer manager, and Eric were present. It was my kind of night, five fun and sexy dancers in one place on a special night. This particular Friday night was a part of the Pride celebration weekend. There was a $7 cover charge for the special weekend, and in my opinion, it was well worth it. The entertainment was just what I needed after a long week and a few hours driving time. I enjoyed all the male dancers.
   Ranger of the Men of Skin indulged my favorite fantasy and dressed as a cowboy. And this exotic male dancer fan was very grateful. Ranger couldn't go wrong with this one. I mean, a cute face and sexy smile underneath a cowboy hat is more than I can resist. Then add in a pair of chaps that framed a pair of perfect close-to-bare ass cheeks. Yes, I was a happy ranch hand.

   Austin, the dancer manager at Club Boomerang, well, he fills out his underwear quite nicely. And the way he works the pole, let's just say, your eyes will remain completely focused. Another thing I loved about him as well, is that he has blond hair. That has become a rare commodity in exotic male dancers.

   Zion has become an industry friend with Males In Motion. It is always good to see him. And I must say, he is always in fine shape, going and coming! He is the driving force behind Men Of Skin.

   Another of Club Boomerang's own dancers was Eric. With the cute boy-next-door look, he knows how to move his butt in a way that would encourage any neighbor, or fan, to want to knock on his door. And there were several who 'came-a-knockin' while he was dancing his sessions at the pole.

   I've been a Leo fan for a long time. He is such a sweetheart. Whether he steps out as a bunny, a cat or in some hot leather, or more, Leo always puts on a great show for the Men Of Skin. He likes to make sure everyone is having a good time!
   If you are in the Wichita, KS area, stop by Club Boomerang. They have two bars, and amazing bartenders. It was a busy night and I watched as the bartenders were slinging drinks, keeping the line moving without missing a beat. I want to thank Joshua and Brad for being great hosts and for providing such a fun playground for locals and visitors alike. Club Boomerang features male dancers on Saturday nights and for special events. Until next time, make this month a time you show your appreciation to dancers and bartenders by tipping a little extra. They work hard to keep us entertained and make our weekends memorable!
