Below The Mirror
Gabe from X-Room
Springfield, MA


Photo Source: Gabe's Facebook Page
   The average career of an exotic male dancer is very short. Male dancers come and go. Some last for a day, a week, a month, etc. But very few last longer than a year. I have known Gabe at X-Room at Mardi Gras in Springfield, Massachusetts for several years. He is and has always been one of my favorite exotic male dancers.

   What is it that I find so attractive about Gabe? Well, let's start out with the obvious...a smoking, hot tight body, a handsome face, and eyes that draw you in.

   "I want to see what's below the mirror." That is one of the comments most often posted under selfies posted by Gabe. If you've followed my blog for a couple of years or more, you've seen Gabe's pics shared and posted many times.

   If you've had one of 'those' days, I recommend an evening in the company of Gabe. Of course, this comes with a warning. Be prepared for it to become an addiction. One where you will have to keep returning to X-Room at Mardi Gras for another night watching and tipping Gabe.

   He fits our definition of a successful exotic male dancer. The customers like him. Yes, he is sexy. He's also a little bit crazy, and when I'm ready for a night out of fun to take my mind off of the real world, crazy does it for me. Crazy in a good way!

   I am a Gabe fan. I look forward to the selfies, the pics of Gabe from the club, and of course my visits to X-Room at Mardi Gras in Springfield, Massachusetts. When I know I am going to be in the area, I check with Sammy, club manager, to see if Gabe is going to be working. He's top on my list. There are several other dancers at the club that I enjoy as well, I just know that if Gabe is there, it will be a fun night!

   If you find yourself in the Northeast, take a little side trip to Springfield, Massachusetts. I promise you won't regret it. Tell Gabe that Mike from Males In Motion says hi. And while you're chatting with him, go ahead and ask him for a private lap dance. You won't regret that either! You'll be able to see for yourself...what's below the mirror!

   Now is a great time to check out the dancing boys like Gabe. They are devoted to the gym, working on getting a summer body. Until next time, keep sliding those dollar bills into exotic places!

Time For An Online Check-up
For Male Strippers, Managers, Owners


Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital
   Males In Motion is currently going through a website redesign and update. During this time we are verifying old listings, links, and everything that we are carrying over. We are also updating information with new clubs, dancers, etc. Since it is fresh in my mind, I thought I'd pass on a few tips and suggestions to male strippers, club managers and owners, and anyone else that might have an interest in online promotion.
    MIKE'S CHECK LIST FOR ONLINE PROMOTION
  • Is your website current? When was the last time you visited it?  While verifying the websites of clubs/bars/agencies, I have found broken links sending me to error pages; websites that no longer exist; and one link even sent me to a location that caused a warning to pop up from my anti-virus.

  • Are your photos current? Are you still using photos from last year or even 2-3 years ago? Or longer?  I have viewed Facebook pages and websites where the latest photos that have been posted were in 2010. And yes, this is a currently open and active club. If they are no longer using Facebook, then I'd advise that they place a message, pic, etc., on their Facebook account telling potential customers where they can find up-to-date information. When someone is searching for a club in the area to go to, will they find your information and pics outdated? If a potential customer runs into this while searching, they may immediately start looking for a different place to go. They'll find one with current information and pics.

  • Is the information on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media current?  This is extremely important, particularly for out-of-town visitors. If they arrive at your location to find the doors closed, or a different event taking place, they may never return, and you will also lose that most valuable promotion tool - positive word of mouth! They'll most likely be posting something online that says, "Don't go there because..."

  • Has anything changed in your weekly lineup? Have you changed it on all online promotions?  When new event nights are added, and old ones dropped, be sure to make these changes as soon as possible. If one has dropped, remove it immediately.

  • Has your location moved? Has that information been updated?  Did your business find a new home? Are you a dancer who moved to a new city? Make those changes so the people who want to find you or hire you will have the correct information.

  • MUY IMPORTANTE!!! What nights do you have male dancers at your club? Is this clearly posted on your website or other online locations? If I were traveling in your city and visited your website or Facebook page, would I be able to find out if you have male dancers at your club and the date/day and time they will be performing?  I have run into this many times. There are some clubs/bars that you would never know that they feature exotic male dancers. I have had to scroll down their posts, or ask people who have recently been there. Please let them know that there are many, many customers like me who go to a club/bar/event because male dancers are featured. If they are not posting this information, then I and more customers like me, will never visit their fine establishment.

  • Do you have an audition night? male dancer contest night? Has that information been posted clearly?  Over the past 13 years, one of the most frequent questions I have been asked is how to get started as a male dancer. I always recommend that you start at the local level. And first and foremost, I recommend that a potential male dancer go to an audition or contest night. If a bar/club has an audition night, they need to state this clearly so that any potential male dancers on any day, will know what day and what time to show up.
   Read through and answer the above questions, then do a visual check of the online sources for your promotions. Follow up by contacting whoever is in charge of the specific social media or posts and let them know what updates or edits are needed. If you have any suggestions to go with these, please add them in the comment section below. Until next time, keep the boys dancing! And make sure we all know how to find them online.

Perspective: Simply Grateful


Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital
   Keeping up with exotic male dancers, where they will be performing, clubs, bars, revues, and events takes a lot of my time. I spend a few hours each day online checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Emails, etc. I absolutely love it! It is exciting to see the ads, graphics, video clips, pics and more! I started Males In Motion because I was a fan of exotic male dancers and after over 13 years, I am still here, and enjoying it even more than before. I am grateful for a life that includes a partner I love, and who loves me, and a business/career that we have built, and enjoy each day!
   I prefer a mental state where I am grateful, positive, upbeat, encouraging, and see a half-full glass. I do have those days when I don't quite make it but there are many more where I do. With all the information that is thrown at me each day, I have had to add a few filters to keep myself in the mental and emotional state that I prefer. There is a lot of negativity posted. There is a lot of hate. There are a lot of unhappy people who I guess prefer to promote unhappiness in others. As a result, I have to take a daily mental and emotional bath, and put up a few walls.
   I am grateful to be a citizen of the United States. It seems to me that as a nation we are always in a political campaign of one type or another. I do not go so far as to become the ostrich with his head stuck in the sand, oblivious of everything that is happening around him. But when I am surfing the net, and it is possible, I 'hide' all political posts regardless of their political affiliation. I do vote and just before a primary, I will spend a little time looking at the various candidates and their professed convictions or principles, and then make up my mind how I will vote in the primary. There is way too much time before an election to look, listen and view everything political that is posted, nor do I want to. It keeps my head clearer, and I stay away from most of the hate, and mud slinging that is thrown by all sides.

   I am grateful that I am a happy drunk. Although it doesn't happen often, when I do enjoy several dirty martinis or other of my favorite adult beverages, I become a happy and loving drunk. If you are around me, I will most likely give you a hug and tell you how much I love you because when alcohol hits my brain, I love everyone. Unfortunately, that is not the case with some. The entertainment provided by exotic male dancers is most often at a bar or club where the patrons are enjoying their favorite alcoholic concoctions. Some cannot control their liquor and what I call 'nastiness' is the result. Words are spoken that should never be spoken and sometimes violence can erupt. If you are known to be that type of person when you've had a few too many, please do one of two things when out at a bar or club. First, take all the money in your pocket and give it to the nearest male dancer. Just kidding! First for real, either back off and don't let yourself get to that point, or... Second, if you really are wanting to have a wall banger of a night, take a close friend with you, one who is able to keep you within the bounds of public decency and cordial talk. (If I am around where I can view it, go ahead with public indecency.)
   I've come to believe that being grateful is a key to keeping ourselves from becoming - as my grandmother would say, "too big for your britches". That doesn't mean we're fat and can't fit in them. That means we have an over-inflated sense of our importance to those around us. When that happens we tend to treat others with disrespect and disdain. And basically make a fool of ourselves. By keeping an attitude of gratefulness, we remember the following:
Customers and Male Dancer Fans:

I am grateful for the bar/club that provides a place for me to go and be entertained, make new friends, and enjoy a social life.

I am grateful for the exotic male dancers who provide most excellent eye candy for me to enjoy.

I am grateful for the bar/club staff who work hard to serve me drinks, keep me safe, and let me blow off steam from the week.

I am grateful that I have a place where I can enjoy the company of other like minded individuals (and just maybe take one of them home for the night or longer.)

Male Dancers:

I am grateful for a bar/club/event that allows me to dance and receive tips to pay expenses or buy the things I am wanting.

I am grateful for the customers and fans who give me their hard-earned cash so I can pay expenses or buy the things I am wanting.

I am grateful that I can work in an atmosphere where I am rewarded and praised for the hard work I do to keep my body fit.

Owners and Managers:

I am grateful for the customers/patrons who enter my bar and spend their money.

I am grateful for the entertainers who work hard to put on a quality show at my location.

I am grateful that I live in a country where I can own and run a business like this.

   Next time you are out at a club/bar/event, be nice to the staff. Hey, it doesn't hurt to tip the DJ or other staff members every now and then. Stuff a few extra dollars in the waistband of your favorite male dancers. He'll love it and I'm sure you will enjoy it as well. Always tip your bartender. Go in with an attitude of gratefulness and have the best night you've had in a while. It works. Until next time, I want you to know that I am grateful that you took the time to read this blog.

Males In Motion Heartbreakers 
Boys We've Fallen For


Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital
   It's Valentines 2016 and we're in love with a few boys...we love how they make us smile when they dance...we love to tip them...and when possible we enjoy those VIP room private lap dances!

Photo Source: Men Of Skin
   Zion is head honcho of the Men Of Skin from Kansas City, MO. We've known Zion for several years and our admiration has only grown stronger. We appreciate the fact that he keeps the sexy KC boys dancing around the midwest and more. He's our King Of Hearts this Valentines. When the boys are at home, you'll find him at Missie B's in Kansas City, MO. Click here and read when we caught some of them at Mix Ultralounge in Springfield, MO.

Photo Source: Dice
   There are some dancers that you like right-off-the-bat. Dice is one of them. He is a total sweetheart. He knows how to play into some of our fondest fantasies. And we love to play. You can find Dice at the X-Room at Mardi Gras in Springfield, MA. Click here and read our review of X-Room including Dice and some of the other Northeastern boys.

Photo Source: Area 18 Facebook and Rick Craig Photography
   The dancers at Area 18 in Tulsa, OK whether local or visiting from other areas, often have two common characteristics. They have these piercing eyes and have been blessed with a bulge. We have no problem with either of those characteristics. And yes, we do sometimes look at the eyes as well. We're also glad that John O travels up from Dallas from time to time and brings his "characteristics".

Photo Source: The Corner Pocket
   Imagine you are sitting at a bar and you look up and standing before you is Jacob. That is the experience you get when you visit The Corner Pocket in New Orleans, LA. The French Quarter is one of America's favorite playgrounds and when we are there, we're sitting at that bar. We have one warning...be careful when at The Corner Pocket. These boys will steal your heart...not your money, you'll willingly be tucking that in their shorts. Click here and read about our most recent visit!

Photo Source: Johnny Dangerously Facebook
   The state of Ohio is quickly becoming one of our favorite states for finding exotic male dancers. In many locations around the state you will hear rumors of this hot male dancer called Johnny Dangerously. We have not had the privilege of seeing him in person...yet! But many of our friends and blog readers have. They will be happy that we have included him in this blog. We understand, we say, "Be still my beating heart."

Photo Source: Share Nightclub Facebook
   We are suckers for a great smile! Suckers? no pun intended but if... Anyway, back to great smiles. No, look higher on the pic to see the smile. We look forward to the pics posted online out of the clubs in Las Vegas. And often we especially appreciate those from Share Nightclub, particularly when Randy is in them. We love Randy with our whole heart...and more if we could. ***insert evil grin here***

Photo Source: Facebook
   Expect an automatic increase in your heart rate when you see Vinny Vega. Personally, we would like to place our head upon that chest and listen to his ticker for a few beats. If you've been fortunate enough to catch glimpses of Vinny dancing at various locations around New York City, you know exactly what we mean.

Photo Source: X-Room at Mardi Gras
   Our current male dancer crush is on Logan. He's definitely another of our favorites from X-Room at Mardi Gras in Springfield, MA. All we can say is make your way to X-Room and spend a little time in his company. Start out with him dancing on the bar in front of you. Then move to the VIP Room and enjoy a private lap dance. You can thank us later.

Photo Source: Drae Facebook
   Has anyone ever caused you to be breathless? Three people have caused this to happen to me (Mike) in my lifetime. One, on a flight from New York to Memphis when seeing another male passenger with beyond amazing good looks. Two, once in Little Rock when a cyclist rode up and got off his bike wearing spandex. And three, each time I look at Drae. Those eyes, that face, that body, that ... (wait, let me stop a minute and catch my breath). I've had to stop looking at pics of Drae when I'm in public places. I suck all the air out of the room. And if I'm watching a video he is in, well, I almost suffocate myself. So, I'm smitten with Drae. And everyone at Males In Motion agrees. You can catch him working it at Andrew Christian underwear, making special appearances at clubs, or on Facebook.
   Thanks for reading this blog. We hope you enjoyed some of the current male dancers who have captured our attention and hearts. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boys!

Piranha Nightclub ~ Las Vegas!
Not Just A Night Out,
It's An Experience!


Photo Source: Piranha Nightclub ~ Las Vegas, NV
   I was introduced to Piranha Nightclub by a member of one of my facebook groups. He often shares pics they have posted from their weekly events. I have enjoyed the pics, still do, and have followed the links. The result was putting Piranha Nightclub on my list of places to visit when next in Las Vegas. It didn't hurt that one pic featured hot men in skimpy underwear wearing cowboy hats and boots!

   As you know, I love exotic male dancers. I wouldn't have been promoting this business for the past 13 years if I didn't. I can take the party with me to a neighborhood dive bar while watching a single male stripper and sipping a dirty martini, or a Dos Equis Amber. To me, that is a good time! But occasionally I do enjoy moving it to a different level. There are nights when I want more. And more is what you get at Piranha Nightclub.

   Like a chef creating his latest mouth watering temptation. Piranha starts with the finest ingredients, hot well built men. Then add in a dash of long pouches and ample bubble butts. Then stir in some tease with a little bump and grind. And top it all off with a specific focus for the night. A focus that will fuel everyone's fantasies. Whether you like to daydream about cowboys, nerds, 70s disco, androgyny, military, etc., you'll find something to catch your attention, spark your interest, and get you ... all stirred up. Go ahead, we'll wait while you add that to your spank bank!

   Vegas of course is the perfect place for displaying true showmanship. When you place it inside an elegant club like Piranha and then hire amazing male scenery to decorate the interior, the result is not just a night out, but it's an experience. One you will remember long after you leave, should you be an out-of-town visitor. If you are lucky enough to be a local or frequent flyer, you'll want to come back again and again for more.

   Until next time, put your hand in the tank. Go for the experience! And as always, don't forget to tip the boys! Oh and take your lesbian and straight male friends with you too! They've got a little eye candy they'll enjoy as well.

...Butt Changed My Mind
Male Stripper Butts


Photo Source: G Lounge ~ New York, NY
   I had planned to tell a different story for the first blog of 2016, butt changed my mind. Yes, the butt is a powerful thing and while perusing the pics posted from New Year's Eve and earlier in December, I noticed a trend. The butts were beautiful in December. I thought it only fitting that I pause for a January blog and pay homage to the gluteus maximus.

Photo Source: Icon ~ Astoria, NY
   When tipping an exotic male dancer, I always at least once, ask the dancer to turn around so I can tip his backside. I do like a nice ass. And of course, as I tip, it is necessary to squeeze a globe or two. That's just to let the dancer know that you appreciate what he has either been blessed with, or has help to create in the gym, or both.

Photo Source: Neighbours Nightclub ~ Seattle, WA
   I am a true aficionado of the male behind. I like the way they move when a man walks. I like the way that they can fill out a nice pair of jeans or underwear. And when they are attached to an exotic male dancer, I like the way they shake, flex, and then relax. Yea, I like all of that. And we won't even talk about the mountain range that appears on a bed when a man is lying on his stomach. I'll let your imagination go there. If you need a few minutes, just let me know.

   I have officially declared 2016, the Year Of The Butt! I call upon all readers of this blog to please share nice butt sitings at every opportunity. I'm looking forward to seeing more male butts on Instagram; more male butts on Facebook; more male butts in text messages; more male butts on Twitter; and more male butts on any other social media you use. If you think you have a nice butt, please send me a pic of it and I'll post it at the bottom of this blog. As far as I'm concerned for this blog, every male is an exotic male dancer whether he dances at the club, at an event, at a party, or in the bedroom.

Photo Source: Silverado ~ Portland, OR
   You can send me those butt pics through my Facebook page or email it to mike@malesinmotion.com. If you want any type of recognition for your pic, etc., just let me know. Oh, I'll accept covered butts and uncovered butts; jeans or naked; etc. Until next time, let the butt change your mind. Enjoy the gallery below and as I receive pics I will be adding to it. And don't forget to tip the dancing boy butts in 2016!
