Surprise me!
The Unexpected Can Be Lots Of Fun!

   There I was, my legs in the air and he was... No, really, I was. So, it went like this. I stopped in at Mojo's in Tulsa on Friday night. Due to commitments in my life, I had been unable to get away for several weeks. It was time. I had to get out of the house and get back to having a life. A drive to Tulsa was in order.

   My partner and I arrived early so we could visit with good friends at the bar. We were fortunate because several of them were already there or arrived soon after we did. I was enjoying my Dirty Martini, made to perfection by bartender Brandon, when a slim, yet defined tattooed red headed dancer in bright green underwear approached. He introduced himself and said thanks for coming out. Magnum is his dancer name. Well, if you know me at all, you know at that point, I was hooked.
   I watched as he made his way around the room introducing himself to the other customers. It's like he had pulled a page out of my guide book and was following it step-by-step. His enthusiasm was contagious and I was happy to see it. Of course, I had to take a few pics. I took a few while he danced his session at the pole and then once finished, I asked him to allow me to take a couple at the back platform. He graciously agreed. I tipped him for the pics at the pole. The next thing I know, unexpectedly, I am being bent over and my backside had become a target. As I said, "The unexpected can be lots of fun!". I tipped again at the platform.
   Sometime later as I was sitting at the bar, I was turned around on my bar stool, my legs raised in the air and well, it was Magnum. Once again, I had become a target. This time there was a new surprise. I felt some type of vibration. And yes, it could have been that (you have a dirty mind and I like it), but I do believe it was of the electronic type. I asked him, "What is that?" He replied, "It's my secret." Well, I guess I just let the secret out, but hey, it will still be fun for those who have yet to experience Magnum. Of course, I felt obligated to run my hand across his defined chest and flat stomach. You know, some things you just have to do for the cause of all male dancer fans everywhere.
   Until next time, I hope you find some unexpected fun (and vibrations). And don't forget to tip him when you do! And if you liked this story, you should have seen the guy who had the birthday celebration! Yep, I think that type of celebration with Magnum and the Men of Mojo's could make me celebrate my birthday every week! Woot!

Dancers Who Do!
Top Ten Times To Thank Male Dancer Fans

(Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital) Jake is a Andrew Christian model and member of the male revue, Men Of Skin from Kansas City, MO.

   The blog I wrote about my recent experience in Dallas received a lot of feedback through emails, comments, Facebook messages, etc. So, I decided to help my exotic male dancer friends with a few small ways they can be friendly and increase their tips. This blog deals with the simple act of saying "Thank you". I've included pics of male dancers who are doing it right. These guys are customer focused and successful! They're also some of my favorites.
Top 10 Times To Thank Male Dancer Fans
1. When they enter the door.
Everyone from doormen, dancers, bartenders and staff.
Say "Thank you for coming out tonight!"
Say "Thank you for coming to [insert name of your club or event]! Enjoy the boyz!"
2. When they buy a drink
(soda, beer, wine, shot, cocktail, etc.)
Bartenders, shot boys, barbacks and staff. Say "Thank you! Let me know when you're ready for another one!"
3. When they tip.
(Anyone who gets a tip.)
Say "Thank you."
Say "Thank you baby!"
Say "Thank you sweetheart."

4. When they buy you a drink.
Anyone they buy a drink for... Say "Thank you."
5. When they wait on someone before them
Any time they show courtesy and patience
Say "Thank you for being patient."
Say "Thank you for hanging around."

6. When they make you smile.
Remember your smile is one of your sexiest features.
Say "Thank you for making me smile."
Say "Thank you for making my night."
7. When they compliment you.
You work hard to look good. It was noticed.
Say "Thank you for noticing."
Say "Thank you very much."
8. When they take a picture of you.
They are a fan.
Say "Thank you, will you tag me on facebook when you post it."
Say "Thanks for standing (or sitting, etc.) with me."
9. When you remember them from a previous event or night.
A return visit is important and means a lot!
Say "Thank you for coming out again."
Say "Thanks for coming to see me again."

10. When they are leaving.
They will remember you for next time.
Say "Thank you for coming out. Hope to see you next time."
Say "Thanks again for being here tonight."
Say "Thanks for the tips. It is much appreciated."

   Let me also take this opportunity to say thank you! Thank you to the dancing boyz who make this blog possible! Thank you to the club and bar owners and managers for providing opportunities for us fans to see the boys! And THANK YOU to all of you exotic male dancer fans who tip the boys, read this blog, visit my Facebook page and website and help keep this industry going! You all are appreciated! Until next time, don't forget to tip the boyz!

Happy Hour - Now I know why it's happy!
The Bulge At The Brick/Joe's in Dallas!

   So, a man walks into a bar in the middle of the afternoon (badda bing!)...because his partner is tired and wants to get a beer. "Is it open he says?" The man responds, "The sign says it is." So, my partner and I, the man, walk into The Brick/Joe's in Dallas, TX. Before our eyes can adjust, a male voice comes out of the darkness, "Hello". We say hello back and as we begin to see more clearly, we realize the voice came from a damn cute guy wearing a pair of Calvin Klein football themed underwear with the lace up look on the basket. Of course, then I'm ready to say the other "hello". You know the one I mean. The one you say when you see that hot guy walking in the crosswalk, or down the grocery aisle, or in the car next to you at the traffic light. Yea, you know which one.

   We think we're just coming into a bar in the afternoon to have a beer but little did we know, The Brick/Joe's has brought the Happy Hour to a new level. And now I know why it is a happy hour. First, we see Micah, the bartender and the owner of the voice from the darkness, and then it isn't very long before male dancers start arriving and stepping onto the platforms and swinging on the poles. I want to make it clear that these were no ordinary male dancers. I have never seen so many pair of underwear in one place being stretched to the limit. Whatever term you want to use - hung, full basket, blessed, well-endowed,etc. - they all applied. The bulge was big. And those that enjoy the walking-away-view, that scenery was very very nice as well.
   There were four bartenders including Micah at the bar where we sat. ALL FOUR were hot as hell. I know it sounds like I'm gushing but the truth is the truth. One of them was wearing a pair of underwear that covered half his ass...this was the design. When I wasn't watching the dancers I was following that ass. The other two bartenders had obviously been spending some quality time in a gym, and I for one was full of appreciation for their hard work. One of them is in the pic below.

   Micah kept us engaged at the bar with witty conversation. I asked his permission to take this pic so everyone could see how cute he is. And just so you know, he makes a mean dirty martini as well.

   I'll be honest after a rather disappointing previous night, I was in need of an attitude adjustment in the form of alcohol and hot men. At the Brick/Joe's I found both. And seriously, I could have sat at the bar and watched the four bartenders and been perfectly content. But the fact that there were also up to seven male dancers at a time throughout the room kept me happy. From my vantage point I saw a slim dancer wearing Andrew Christian red and white underwear that fit perfectly. I watched a muscular dancer in a red thong and hanging long. There was the boy in blue whose bulge was about to bust out of the fabric.

   At this moment I must say "Thank you" to my friend Kurt in Tulsa for his recommendation that I stop in at The Brick/Joe's. I am truly grateful. By now it is obvious that I also recommend the Brick/Joe's. You'll find it at 2525 Wycliffe, Dallas, TX. If you're in the Dallas area go party early for Happy Hour. You'll be glad you did!
   Until next time, find your place to appreciate the bulge. And don't forget to tip the boyz!!!

Bar/Club Owners - It's Time For A Reset
Wipe The Slate Clean And Start All Over

   During my recent trip to Dallas I had a budget of $300 for tipping the boys. To some that may seem like a lot. To others, that is pocket change compared to what they spend on male strippers in a weekend. However, the important thing here is that I came home with $250 still in my pocket. Why? I was ignored.
   Now before you go accusing me of having a big ego or being a tightwad, let me explain. My partner and I play a game each time we visit a club or event with male dancers. We set a budget amount for what we're going to tip the boyz. If we are acknowledged and given a little attention from a male dancer, the money starts coming out of our pocket and into their waistband. If we are ignored, the tip money stays in our pocket.
   It's a matter of perspective. Here's the reality. I am a customer who enters a bar or club. I am the source of revenue for the club, the bartenders, the dancers, etc. I have money that I can spend as I wish. And for me specifically, I am a gay male who enjoys the attention of hot young men in their underwear (or sometimes less). Now, just because someone is good looking and has a nice body and stands on a platform or swings from a pole is not a sufficient reason for me to just hand over my hard earned money to them. Think of it this way, I don't walk down the street and hand out money to good looking guys who pass me. I don't tip a waiter simply because he is cute. Even a bartender doesn't get a tip from me just because he looks good behind the bar. He has to sell and serve me a beer or cocktail. I expect something in exchange.
   Male dancers make nice eye candy but if all I want is eye candy, I can go to a beach, a swimming pool or a gym. I can go online and see gorgeous men from around the world. I don't tip the sexy men in all these locations, just because they are there. So, why should I tip a male dancer just because he wears a pretty pair of underwear and stands on a box? The answer is...I don't.
   I tip as a show of appreciation for a service rendered. The service in this case is contributing to the enjoyment of my night. If a male dancer shows me some attention in a positive way, then I loosen the tight grip on my money and start to show my gratitude in a financial way. I'm not expecting them to camp out at my table or focus exclusively on me during the night. I just want a little acknowledgement. I want to hear that sexy voice and see that smile up close. I want a connection. Nothing big, just one that says, I hope you're having a good time tonight.
   I watched at several clubs in Dallas as the dancers stood on the platforms, bounced, danced a little and looked bored. I watched as some of them looked in mirrors at one club directly in my direction only casting their gaze above me, so they could see their own reflection. And I watched as gaps of 15-20 minutes would go by where they received no tips. So, here's the situation. I have $300 in my pocket waiting to go into their waistband or jockstrap. But not one of them even stepped to my table to say hello. Not one of them dropped the gaze on their reflection above my head and made eye contact and smiled. If they had, I would have started dropping the dollars in their direction. As a customer I felt I was no more important than the chair I was sitting in.
   I could have brought in a neon sign that says "Free dollars here. Come and get it!" Or, I could have had it announced over the sound system that the man sitting by the mirrors has $300 in his pocket that he wants to give to a dancer. Then, some of them might have attempted to move in my direction, but we know it doesn't work that way, nor would we want it to. And yes, I could have gone up to them while they were dancing and started putting dollars in their briefs in an attempt to get a little attention. Yea, right. That's not going to happen. However, I do know that I will respond when given a smile, a hello, a thank you, or another form of positive acknowledgement.
   What I wonder these guys not have bills to pay? And if bills are paid, is there not a new vehicle, new clothes, or electronics that they would like to buy? And if they aren't in it for the money, then what is their motivation to be almost naked and dance several nights a week?
   I'm calling for a reset. I encourage all bar/club owners and managers to reassess. Wipe the slate clean and start all over with a focus on the individual customer. Train your staff, doormen, bartenders, barbacks, djs, dancers, etc. to focus on the money source..the customer. I guarantee you, tips and profits will rise.
   I do want to end this blog by saying. There are some male dancers getting it right. Do you know where they are? Until next time, tip the boys but expect something in exchange.

NOTE: All pics are of the $250 for tips that I brought back home with me.
ABOUT COMMENTS: If you do not see your comment following this blog it is most likely because you posted as ANONYMOUS. I rarely allow an anonymous post. My feeling is that if you can't own up to it with a name, then it's not worth posting. Thanks to all others who have posted.

Did The Cock Measure Up?
Falling A Little Limp In NYC

(Photo Source: The Cock Bar Facebook Page)
"Next time I go back, I'll go on a Friday or Saturday."
Our friend and guest blogger, Cobalt King reflects on a recent visit to The Cock in NYC.
   In an appropriately un-gentrified section of lower Manhattan, The Cock holds an unassuming spot on 2nd Ave, with a small and dark street presence. The only way to recognize the place is by the neon red 'rooster' on the front of the building. Upon entering, I'm greeted
by a hulking dude with a genuine smile, but with an ominous warning. "That'll be $5 (it was a Tuesday). Keep your phone and your money in your front pocket and if you go outside, don't talk to people on the street who approach you. Tell them I said so."
   Once inside, I had to wait for my eyes to adjust to the darkness. I checked my coat and my shirt with the very friendly clothes check station attendant. I noted a young, athletic dancer on the bar,
wearing just a jockstrap, and I asked the coat check guy if there is a place for private dances. He said there's not, but it's up to the dancer. (I had heard wild stories of nakedness on the bar, and nights where half the patrons were also naked -or nearly naked. But this night appeared to be tame.) I bought a beer from the bartender (they do not sell non-alcoholic beers, in case you're looking for that... and I was, so I could maintain reasonable judgement... but I ended up just having some beers (at $5 each, I think).
   I watched the lone bar dancer gyrate and show his naked ass to the room of about 20 guys. But the dancer did not turn around. He kept looking at the wall and dancing with his ass to the crowd. I found my way to him and tipped pretty lucratively, trying to get him to turn around, but I couldn't get him to turn all the way around. The dancer smiled sweetly, but I couldn't hear him very well because of the small room and the loud music. His body was tight, but he was not engaged with his audience. I felt like I had to work to get his attention...
and I was the only one tipping.

   I retreated to the center of the room and scanned the crowd. It was dark, but I could see the guys lining the walls and sitting in the bench seats along the perimeter. The room looked like it was about 25 x 50 feet (not including the bar space), so it could have been super intimate as the crowd grew. I asked the bartender when the other dancers would be rotating onto the bar and he said there was only one dancer that night. However, a little later, another guy showed up, quickly got undressed and hopped up on the bar. I don't think he got the message about engaging his audience either because he was a handsome and fit young man, but did not try to even make eye contact with the customers lining the bar.
   As I was contemplating leaving, guys started streaming into the place. I had arrived a little after midnight, and it was nearly 2:00 am by this time. It didn't occur to me that the place would heat up after then. But it did. Despite the crowd, and the palpable feeling of something dirty about to happen, and the odd juxtaposition of two nearly naked guys in a room full of guys with heavy winter shirts .... I still felt like there was something about the place which made it safe... Next time I go back, I'll go on a Friday or Saturday to see if all the stories of debauchery are true. but for this customer, who is 6'2 and 245 lbs, The Cock was entertaining, but just a little low-key for the kind of edgy sexually charged environment I was looking for.

Change Is The Only Sure Thing!
Catch the hot boys while you can!

(Photo Source: Eleven Nightclub Facebook Page)
   I've been in this business over 10 years. One thing I know is that nothing ever stays the same. Dancers come and go. Clubs come and go. Managers come and go. There's a constant flux in the exotic male dancer entertainment industry.
(Photo Source: Men Of Eden Facebook Page)
   And change is good. Unless they keep reinventing themselves, male dancers can stay too long in the industry. This will result in boredom, negative attitudes, stale performances and loss of interest among the customers and fans.
(Photo Source: Ethan's Facebook Page)
   Today's instant social media has contributed to the increase in the speed at which entertainment can become old, and labeled "last year's version". I encourage all dancers, club managers and owners, event promoters, etc., to take some time this winter and find some fresh ideas. But before you start scrambling to find that new idea, next big thing, etc. Stop and take a look at your customer service.
(Photo Source: MJ's Bar Facebook Page)
   In the remainder of 2014, I encourage everyone involved in the exotic male dancer entertainment industry to think inside the box, not outside. The first place to start is your regular customers. Evaluate your customer service level. Do your customers feel special when they spend their money at your location or event? Have you gone out of your way to make them feel appreciated for their loyalty to you? We often try to find that next big event, or in this case, that next 10" dick or amazing bubble butt. But it has been proven that attention to your customers is most important.
(Photo Source: Men Of Skin Facebook Page)
   I review bars, clubs and events with exotic male dancers on a regular basis. The first and most important evaluation results from how I am treated by the male dancers. If a dancer has the mentality that the world revolves around him and waits to be worshiped and adored, well, as far as I'm concerned he can wait. If he doesn't try to 'work me' or at least speak to me, then I'm going to ignore him. Yes, I go to the club for eye candy. However, I remain at the club and return in the future because that eye candy gave me some attention.
(Photo Source: Rich's San Diego Facebook Page)
   I have said this so many times but I guess it isn't getting out... If I tip a male dancer while he is dancing during his session, and he says thank you, then I will tip him again during his next session. If he drops by my table after he finishes and says thanks, I'm going to tip him again. If he gives me a hug, etc., then I'm going to tip him again. It's not rocket science. Work me for the cash. And when I say 'me' in this ... I am talking about most customers who are like me and there are many. They've walked through the doors to see pretty boys in their underwear or less. They are easy.
(Photo Source: Here Lounge Facebook Page)
   I have made friends at many different clubs in cities across the U.S. I still receive fb messages, pics and invitations from exotic male dancers around the country. Some have become good friends, others are working me. Do I care? Hell no! When a hot male dancer is sending me a personal invitation to come back and see him, and includes a hot pic, I start looking at my calendar and seeing when I can make my next trip in their direction. Yes, it's been established that I'm easy when it comes to exotic male dancers. But, who do you think will be the first dancer I tip when I walk in to the door of that bar or club. Yep.
   I wish much success in 2014 to all bars, clubs, events, owners, manager, male dancers, etc. who are involved in the exotic male dancer industry. It is my favorite form of entertainment. I want you around when I visit your city. Until next time, send me that personal invitation and a hot pic. But not just to me, send them to all your loyal customers and fans. (And those receiving them, don't forget to tip the boyz before they've moved on!!!)

   Chino is one exotic male dancer that I can speak about from a personal perspective. He can be compared to a dining experience at an exclusive restaurant. Everything is the right temperature, seasoned to perfection, and matched with a fine wine. There is so much about Chino to enjoy that it's hard to point out one particular attribute. Chino performs at Boxers N Briefs near St. Louis, MO. He's extremely photogenic. I've told him before that it is impossible for him to take a bad pic. And in case you didn't know...Boxers N Briefs is a fully nude club!
