Reported On Facebook
Posting Sexy Pics On Social Media


(Photo Source: Michael Hill Facebook page)
   "You've been suspended from posting on Facebook for three days." That was the basic idea of the message I received a month or so ago. Someone had turned in the pic above which I had used as part of my Facebook header during pride. It was over a month after I had replaced it but was still in my photo albums. I wish people would get a life. I also wish I could say that it was always because the pic was way too hot for Facebook. Then it might make sense (well, not really...why can't they just unfriend?). But, unfortunately, most of the time I've found for myself and others it is just someone who is jealous or a hater for one reason or another. Still, posting pics on social media sites is still very important for promotion.
FYI FOR ALL MALE DANCERS, CLUB MANAGER, CLUB OWNERS AND PROMOTERS:
"The more pics you post. The more pics that will have the opportunity to be shared. The more pics that are shared, the more promotion you will receive for yourself, your club, your biz, etc."

   It's not rocket science. It's human nature. When I see a pic of a hot male dancer in his underwear, or halfway out of it, I will almost always without hesitation share it. And when I share it, those in my friends' list will 'like' it or share it. And it can go on and on. So, your initial post of one hot pic will result in the pic being shared across the internet. Add in Twitter, Tumblr, etc., and the pics go around the world.

   Some of you may argue that not everyone is in your target market. No, they may not be. But chances are, they will be sharing with other friends who are. Also, there is always the good possibility that they or someone on their friends' list will be traveling to your fair city and if they are enticed by your pic, will want to visit you, the dancer, or the bar/club/event.

   I don't think I"m alone when I say that I remember hot dancers, clubs and pics and will either mentally or digital file those images away for retrieval when I'm ready to visit your fair city. And so do many other travelers and vacationers. For those living in your area, they will visit sooner when enticed.

   The reason I wrote this blog was because of a difficult Facebook pic search I recently experienced. I wrote the blog about tipping male dancers. I was searching for pics of dancers being tipped by customers. They were difficult to find. I also found during this search that many clubs, dancers, etc., do not post candid pics of their dancers. They seem to want to post only slick, professional images from a studio. Or, they post posters using pics of male models who have nothing to do with their club or event.

(Photo Source: Men Of Skin Facebook page). Read Mike's most recent blog featuring the Men Of Skin. Click here.
   I encourage male dancers, promoters, managers, owners, etc. to hire a photographer from time to time or even use your smart phone and take a few pics of customers interacting with the dancers. This makes them appear more friendly and approachable. This can also plant a subliminal message that the bar/club/venue is also friendly and a fun place for them to be.

   Until next time, keep posting those pics of customers tipping the boyz! Make sure it's ok with the dancer and the customer first. It usually is...so keep 'em coming. I'll be watching and ready to share!

NOTE: Below I've posted a Message Card that I post for those who want to report my photos. Please feel free to pull it down and use it for yourself as well. "Ain't nobody got time for pic haters!"

Club Review: Toolbox Saloon
Columbus, OH
Love And Lust Of A Road Warrior


(Photo Source: The Toolbox Saloon facebook page)
   Road trip! Road trip! Woohoo! My partner and I jumped in the car and headed out at 4am on a Wednesday morning. After driving through parts of three states, we reached our destination in Ohio. We were there to visit one of our closest friends who lives and works in the Columbus area. It was only a matter of time before I would scope out the nearby clubs with male dancers. I had been following the Toolbox Saloon online for over a year. I checked their facebook page and saw that 'Throb Thursday' was when their dancing boys wearing briefs would appear. We set our plan in action and found easy parking outside the bar on a Thursday night in August.

   Seriously, if I could own a bar of my own, this is very close to what it would be. The Toolbox Saloon is a neighborhood bar with friendly people, good drinks and of course, hot male dancers. If I lived near Columbus, OH, I would be here every Thursday night at 7:00pm. There were three of us and when we walked in the door, the bartender immediately greeted us and began quizzing us on how he could make our favorite drinks. Although tempted by some of his creative concoctions, I chose to stay true to myself and ordered a dirty martini. My compadres ordered a jack and coke and a bud light. The prices were comparable to those we've paid in many other places. There was no cover charge.

   In good weather, The Toolbox Saloon serves food on the outdoor patio. The bar has an interior just large enough that everyone gets a good seat for the shows. We found a table over to one side where the three of us could sit comfortably, watch the show, and enjoy our drinks. The music was played at the right volume for dancers to perform and yet still interact with the customers. And interact they did.

We would definitely place Zach (above) in the "above average" size department.

   Throb Thursday has an early show and a late show. Two dancers were scheduled for each show. We were there for the early show since we had another commitment later in the night. And I for one am happy that we chose the early show. I'm sure the late show was good as well, but Zach and Xavier were at the first one. Zach had three different sessions while we were there. I remember all three but the second and third dances stand out in my mind. The second because he came out dressed as a cowboy. Enough said. The third because he used the classic song "The Stroke" by Billy Squire. I've added the song to the bottom of this blog so you can understand just how appropriate that song was for a male dancer fan like me. And lets just say that Zach is well equipped to create fantasies that go along with that song.
   "Tengo una debilidad por los bailarines latinos." I have a weakness for Latino male dancers. Xavier is a hot young latino with an ass that requires all your resistance to keep from reaching out and.... Well, my resistance wasn't very strong. But I was only 'giving him a tip' of course. I said, "muy guapo'. He said 'thank you'. I said, 'no, thank you!'

   Whether it's on purpose or it just comes naturally, the guys at The Toolbox Saloon practice customer service at it's best. The bartender came to our table and checked on us twice during the night. The dancers each came by our table, spoke with us and said thanks for each tip that was placed in their waistbands.

   When I return to Columbus, OH, and I will, I'll find my way to The Toolbox Saloon on any and all nights that male dancers will be present. Thank you to everyone at the bar for making our evening fun, hot and something we're telling stories about. Thanks to Zach and Xavier. It's obvious when dancers are enjoying what they're doing. With you guys it showed. Special thanks to Zach for rocking (and filling out) a thong, more than once. Oh my, oh my...
   Until next time, enjoy the classic song "The Stroke" by Billy Squier. (Yea, it looks kind of cheesy now but the words can still work a crowd.)
   I fell in love with the Toolbox Saloon and definitely in lust with the male dancers! This road warrior will be ready for another trip to Ohio. Stop in and tell them Mike at Males In Motion says 'hi'! And don't forget to tip the boys!

Why The Hell Should I Tip A Male Dancer?
(It Creates The Full Swing)


(Photo Source: glounge facebook page)
   Why the hell should I tip a male dancer? There are many reasons but I know of three that stand out: It's fun. It's sexy. It's a new story to tell.

(Photo Source: Magnum Thursdays facebook page)
   Tipping an exotic male dancer is fun! I don't know about you but I don't always have sexy men running around in their underwear at my house. Well, I take that back, I do have my partner. (Love you baby). But you know what I mean. Since I'm not the organizer or participant of an all male orgy, I don't usually have men in briefs or naked just waiting around for me to stop and admire. If you do, I say cheers and tip my dirty martini. But in most households, it's not the norm.

(Photo Source: Sinzation Male Review facebook page)
   So, take advantage of the situation, tip the boys and enjoy the hot men in their underwear....or less. By tipping them you let them know you like what you see. You show your appreciation for their working out and keeping their bodies in tip-top shape. And tipping encourages them to keep working as a male dancer. When they look good, we want them to stay around so we can keep enjoying them.

(Photo Source: Corner Pocket facebook page)
   Tipping an exotic male dancer is sexy as hell! When I'm at a bar or club, I survey the available male dancers and as everyone does, I visually determine which one I want to tip first. My normal proclivity is toward the lean athletic guys with muscle definition and cute twinks. But I also can be motivated to check out a dancer for other reasons...a handsome face, a bubble butt, a big dick or an erection, a broad and defined chest, etc. I want to show my appreciation for such amazing assets by tipping. I want them to make enough money in tips so that next time I walk through the door, they'll be there because it's financially worth it.

(Photo Source: No Parking Bar (Castro) facebook page)
   Tipping an exotic male dancer creates new stories to tell. In September, Males In Motion will celebrate its 11th year. I have enjoyed the talents of many exotic male dancers during that time. I have told stories about ...
...Mojo's (Tulsa) where over the years I've taken more pics of dancers than any other club.
...Madrigals (Chicago) no longer in existence - my favorite interior of any bar I've ever visited.
...The Brick/Joe's (Dallas) where they've redefined the happy hour with hot dancers, great bartenders and drink specials.
...Boxers N Briefs (St. Louis) where I saw one of the largest cocks I've ever seen in person, and my first ever trip to the VIP lounge.
...Swinging Richard's (Atlanta) where I've had several amazing nude lap dances.
...The Gaiety (NYC) which no longer exists... where I ... well, I'll leave that one there.
...X-Static (Springfield) now at X-Room ... where my partner experienced his first private lap dance. (Woohoo!)
...Missy B's (Kansas City) where the Men Of Skin perform ... sexy dancers who have also become friends.

(Photo Source: The Brick/Joe's facebook page)
   And it's not just me. I constantly receive emails, texts, blog comments, and have conversations with other exotic male dancer fans who share their experiences. My stories are mild compared to some of their stories. Woot! I've been told of fun being had in Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland, OR, Phoenix, and many more places. And by the way, keep those stories coming.

(Photo Source: Share facebook page)
   For example, you'll often notice at the all-nude clubs, the boys come out with a few clothes on, but once the tipping starts getting in full swing...so do they. And I do enjoy the full swing. And full swing can help create more new stories.

   Until next time, don't forget to tip the boyz! And the bottom line here is...the more you tip, the more opportunities you'll have to create new stories to tell. And if you're like me. The more times you'll get in trouble for ...

Let's Get Nekkid...
Mike's Picks For Full Views Of Baskets And Buns


(Photo Source: MIM Archives)
   I was born and raised a southerner, and in the south we like to either create our own words or pronounce words our own way. One such word is nekkid. Nekkid is our way of talking about someone who is wearing no clothes. You might say naked or nude. Or, you might use a phrase like "in the buff" or "wearing nothing but their birthday suit". Our phrase would be "nekkid as a jay bird." I don't know why or if jay birds are ever nekkid but that's what we say, and the message gets across.

(Photo Source: MIM Archives)
   Let's say that lately you've been sitting/standing at that job of yours and thinking, "I need a break!" You're wanting to get away from it all! Personally I like to recommend that you go see the dancing boys, have a few drinks, maybe dance a bit, possibly hook up, etc., so where should you go?

(Photo Source: MIM Archives)
   When I have the time and the budget, I like to plan a weekend that allows me to go see my dancing men nekkid. And when a weekend like that gets to happen, I'll be playing at one of the following locations. Some of these locations are more than a weekend's trip away for me but I'm hoping that those of you who are close, will please go in my place and enjoy the nekkid boys in your area. And when you get back, I want to hear all about it. So either email me or write a comment after this blog.

   Did I miss one of your favorites? Let me know where you would go to see the nekkid men. You might give me an idea for my next weekend nekkid getaway. I mean sometimes you just want to get nekkid. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boys in the socks or armbands...they'll be nekkid so you won't have any underwear to put it in.

The Quickie That Was Well Worth It
Le Campus In Montreal


(Photo Source: Le Campus Website)
   Did I really have the time? I had somewhere I wanted to be in an hour or less. When would I have another opportunity like this? It was right there. I could reach out and touch it. I have to do this. So, I walked in the door at Le Campus in Montreal.
   I went up the stairs and stopped halfway up at a large dark room where a doorman was collecting the door charge. Through the darkness I could see a bar and behind it a stage where a male dancer was sliding around his underwear to reveal a large erection. Yes, "everybody's got time for this". I walked in and went to the right of the bar to an area with tables and chairs, and found a seat. Within minutes a cute waiter/bar back asked me if I wanted something to drink. I ordered and soon received it, and tipped him. On the stage in front of me, another dancer had stepped out and was completely nude. He was muscular but lean. My eyes were quite pleased.
   I hadn't been sitting very long before several different dancers approached me asking me if I wanted to do a private with them. I explained that it was my first time there and I wanted to enjoy the show for a little while and then I'd consider a private. If I hadn't already had plans, I would have probably gone with each and every one of them. They each had assets that captured my attention and left me weak and vulnerable but I remained strong...unfortunately. I particularly remember one dancer named Larenzo. And he will be enough to keep my daydreams alive until I can return for a full night at Le Campus.
   As you see, I cannot speak from experience about any private lap dances but I can say that the show alone was worth my making a detour and stopping for an hour. It was a quickie but was well worth my stop. But when I return, and I will return, I will be doing much more than watching the show.

(Photo Source: Le Campus Website)
   Until next time, take a quickie if you have to...but when possible plan for going the distance long and smooth, or hard and rough....whatever floats your boat. And as always, don't forget to tip the boys!

Bad Boys Have All The Fun!
X-Room At Mardi-Gras ~ Springfield, MA


(Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
   So, the story goes like this...due to a particular situation I was in, my ride on the wild side started with me sneaking out in the middle of the night. I haven't done anything like that since I was a teenager. It felt like I was being bad, which means....it felt good. I wasn't able to drive the vehicle we were in due to the sneaking out thing and all, so I called a cab. I slipped out of my hotel room and held the door so it would close quietly. I walked softly down the hall and ducked into the elevator.
   I made it to the lobby and out the front door without being seen. A mini-van drove up with two ladies in it. They stopped in front of the hotel and sat there waiting to pick up one of the hotel staff members. I was standing in the shadows to one side of the entry waiting for my cab. When they saw me, I heard the door locks pop into place. Yea, they thought I might be dangerous. I was becoming one of the bad boys....it felt good. "Bad boys, bad boys, what ya gonna do? What ya gonna do when they come for you?"

(Dancer JC ~ Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
   We arrived safely at the X-Room at the Mardi Gra but not before driving through a couple of sketchy neighborhoods. I think this was probably a ploy for the cabbie to get a higher fare, but it so added to my sense of doing something I shouldn't do, that I enjoyed it. It was worth a few extra dollars. X-Room is not in a bad area but for the sake of the story, I'll pretend it is. There was no one at the door of the club as I entered, so I made my way inside and up to the bar and acted like I was escaping the cover charge. I was living dangerously. I had reached my destination. "Tonight", I thought, "I am going to be bad." And....it felt good.

(Dancer Gabe ~ Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
   This was a Sunday night and as at many clubs, it was a slower night at X-Room. Now for some that might be discouraging, but never for me! I've found that when it's a slower night, I get more attention from the male dancers. And for me, that's the whole reason I am there. This night was no different. I introduced myself to Sammy, the manager. We chatted a minute and then he began introducing the dancers to me. A big smile (but I'll call it an evil grin) crossed my face when I saw my three current X-Room favorites on the stage: Gabe, Trey and Troy. Continuing my 'bad boy' theme of the night, I allowed a few naughty fantasies to roll around in my head. They're still in there rolling. I bring them back around now and then. It felt good....(still does).

(Dancer Gabe ~ Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
   Gabe made his way over to me and introduced himself. We chatted a bit. He is so damn cute and has a tight, sexy body. My brain went off somewhere in fantasy land with him but somehow through the fog, I heard him ask if I wanted a private dance. I immediately came to my senses and replied, "Hell yea, let's go!" We went to the designated private dance area. Gabe instructed me to sit on the edge of the sofa in the small cubicle surrounded by curtains. I took my place and the private dance began. (Pause while I mentally relive the lap dance.) .... and it felt good. My memories just won't bring this story justice, you need to find out first hand. Go see Gabe at X-Room.

(Dancers Troy and Trey ~ Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
   I returned to the seat beside Sammy and we continued our conversation. Trey soon approached and sat on the bar in front of me. He placed his legs on both sides of my chair and we 'chatted'. I began tipping him as we talked. His twin brother, Troy, came over and joined in the conversation. And as you might guess, it wasn't long before Trey and I were making our way to the private section. The boys had suggested that I take both of them for a private at the same time, and that was very tempting. However, I wanted to get to know each of them individually, up close and personal.

(Dancers Trey and Troy ~ Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
  The private lap dances at X-Room are based on number of songs. It is $20 per song. I told Trey to start with two and we'll go from there. I took my place on the sofa and the private lap dance began. (Pause while I mentally relive the lap dance.) .... and it felt good. He and his brother are sexy, adorable and lots of fun. I encourage you to visit X-Room and discover this for yourself.
   Once again I returned to the seat beside Sammy but not for very long. I was ready to spend a little time with Troy and we made our way to the private section. Yes, I am an exotic male dancer whore. If that makes you think I'm a bad person, all I can say is "thank you!" (Pause while I mentally relive my lap dance with Troy. You can hum while you're waiting..."bad boys, bad boys, what ya gonna do?...") .... and it felt good. All I will say, is that these three hotties have caused me to move X-Room even higher on my list of favorite clubs to visit. Yea, they caused other things to move up that night as well.
   I had planned to get that private dance with the twins, or as Gabe suggested, maybe with all three of them. But before I realized it, it was time for the club to close. I left that night wanting more and when it comes to male strip clubs, that's always a good thing. But I'm not finished being bad at X-Room. I'll be back. But next time, I think I'll leave the bad boy theme behind and go for "legendary".

(Dancer Corey ~ Photo Source: Corey's Facebook Page
   The next morning no one was aware that I had slipped out during the night. And the reason I wanted to nap all day the next day was because "something kept me awake all night. I just couldn't sleep". It will be our secret as to just where I was and who kept me out all night. I like this type of secret....and it feels good.

(Dancer Gabe ~ Photo Source: X-Room Facebook Page)
   Until next time, I give you permission to sneak out and go be bad. If you can go do it at X-Room in Springifield, MA, I'll invite you to go with me to get a skull tattoo. We'll go be bad together. Tell the X-Room boys I said hi. Slip them a buck or two for me.

Note: Yea, there are more pics of Gabe in this blog. Hmmmmm....wonder why that is? I just might possibly be a little partial, but don't tell the other guys.
