If you have been a follower of my blog for any length of time, you may have noticed that I mention Boxers-N-Briefs often. There are at least three reasons for this. First, it is often the closest all-nude male strip club to where I am working. Second, it was the very first all-nude male strip club that I visited and I had so much fun that I have continued to return over the past few years. And third, I have always found at least one sexy male dancer at the club that made me want to come back for more.
So, it may come as no surprise that this year when I was deciding where to celebrate my birthday, I chose Boxers-N-Briefs. My group of three stopped in at BnB on Saturday, May 19. It is funny to me that even now when I walk into an all-nude male strip club, I have a momentary shock as I see the first live nude dancer of the night on stage or on the bar. I'm sure this is a result of my conservative midwest/southern upbringing. The shock of course is one of excitement and an urgency to get inside and see more.
We entered the club and followed a sign that said to pay at the bar. We paid the $10 cover and ordered our first drinks. Do not expect cheap drinks here. They weren't. But that's not unusual for a club of this kind. There are nightly drink specials that will save you a few dollars so check them out before ordering. While at the bar, ask for the bartender Rob. He is one of the nicest people you'll meet and a great bartender. Tell him Mike from Males In Motion says hi.
As is our normal procedure, we found a table near the bar so we could watch the dancers on the bar. There are usually two at a time and they rotate throughout the night. There is also a shower and the night we were there, we watched three different dancers in the shower. Very nice! After they finish, they will walk around with a bucket for tips. Drop a buck or two (or more if you wish) into the bucket. I mean just think about it...a hot male dancer, naked, soaping up and rinsing off in the shower right before your very eyes...most enjoyable and worth giving a tip!
(Pic above: BnB Male Dancer Chino...Hey Chino, thanks for letting us use the pic. Sorry we missed you this trip. We'll catch you next trip!)
If you want to tip the dancers at the bar, make your way to the bar and take a seat on one of the bar stools. The dancers move around to the customers and stop to dance in front of them. They start out in underwear but as the tips begin to come in, they remove the underwear but wear socks so they have a place for you to put the tips. A dancer will usually stay in front of you until you have stopped tipping, then will move on to the next customer.
The highlight of this BnB excursion was a dancer that goes by the name of Bailey. He is tall and slim, brown hair, and has a light scattering of body hair on his chest and flat stomach. Bailey kept my group company often during the night stopping by to joke around, flirt and keep us interested. He found out from one of my friends that it was my birthday and stopped by to give me a shoulder and neck rub. Thank you Bailey! If you get the opportunity to stop in at BnB please spend some time with Bailey. You'll be glad you did.
If you would like to be the center of attention for a dancer, purchase a private lap dance. Ask the bartender the pricing. You can receive a lap dance from a male dancer while he is in underwear for one price, and for a little more, he will dance fully nude. There are club policies and laws I'm sure concerning their conduct while in the private lounge, just ask the male dancer for the specifics.
There is a stage with a pole in another area of the club. When it is busy, there will be at least one and sometimes two other dancers at that stage. The stage has chairs all the way around it. You can sit and watch the dancers and tip from your seat. Keep an eye out for your favorites and step to this stage when they are up.
I have a few pointers to share to make your experience at BnB the best it can be. Saturday night is one of the busiest times at the club. The dancers are a mix of straight and gay. The straight dancers are usually gay-friendly, however, as in most male strip clubs, when the ladies arrive, the straight guys tend to gravitate in their direction. It's only natural. I recommend that anyone, but particularly gay men, go to the club on a Thursday or Friday night. You will get more attention, and isn't that what we want! When there are fewer customers, but several dancers, they work harder for the tips and you'll be the one who benefits. Also, if you like a dancer and want to tip him, move to the bar or stage where he is dancing when he first steps up. If he is a popular dancer and there are a lot of customers who want to tip him, his session may be over before you've had the opportunity.
Male strip clubs like BnB hire new dancers all the time. It is rare to see the same dancer at the same club for several years. Dancers come and go. The mix of types changes as well. On this trip most of the dancers were slim, younger, caucasian or latino and cute. If you are into size, well, there were several dancers who would make you happy. All of those in the shower shows would have met your expectations and more.

I'm already planning a future visit to Boxers-N-Briefs. Until next time, go find Bailey at Bnb. And don't forget to tip!

Let Club Xstatic be your secret indulgence. For me it's a place where you get lost in the atmosphere, shake off the stress of life, enjoy a beer or cocktail, and have some good ol' fashioned 'dirty' fun. I describe it like this:
- Mike's Club Xstatic Get Away Weekend:
- Arrive at Club Xstatic, a Northeast Destination that caters to feeding the senses.
- Relax (if you can) with your favorite drink in hand, and watch exotic precision movement above, below, and around the pole
- Ignore the clock and let the night slip away.
- Place your tips in and under...you finish this sentence.
- Feast on some delightful "eye candy".
- Splurge and enjoy a private lap dance or two with your favorite exotic male dancers.
- Explore your fantasies and create memories you'll remember for many years.
- And if it's a weekend. You can come back the next night and do it again.

- Call Club Xstatic to get the name of the hotel nearby. You can walk from the hotel to the club.
- Several of the dancers have their own facebook page. You can click a link to those from the Club Xstatic website photo gallery.
I've mentioned weekend getaways in this blog but let's make it clear. Club Xstatic is open 7, yes, seven nights each week. So, if your days off fall in the middle of the week, you can still enjoy your 'Secret Naked Getaway'. Of course, when you return to the office it is your choice if you tell everyone why you have that silly grin on your face.

- Mike's Recommendations For Hiring An Exotic Male Dancer
- DETERMINE YOUR BUDGET
- Alcohol and Food
- Location and Decorations
- Getting The Word Out
- Entertainment: My advice to you is to ask an exotic male dancer what they charge. If they charge more than your budget can afford, tell them what your budget is and see if you can make a deal. Ask them how long they will dance/entertain for the amount you have available. If they are willing to come for a shorter time, you still get your special entertainment, and if tipping is going well, they will stay longer. Male dancers who have recently started, or who have had few gigs lately, are often willing to work for less. Some money is better than no money. But be aware also, the male dancers who are in demand will cost more but will usually also deliver high quality entertainment.
- PICK A THEME
- Go with a holiday or event: New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, Mardi Gra, St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Holiday Season, Football Bowl game, Olympics, Grand Prix, World Series, Oscars or other awards show, etc.
- Or, go with a male image icon: Cowboy, Leather, Sports, Military, Hollywood Movie, Firemen, Policemen, Gladiator, Medical doctor, Super Heroes, etc.
- Or, go with an ethnic or other type theme: Hawaiian Luau, Mexican Fiesta, German Oktoberfest, Beer or Wine Tasting, etc.
- MAKE YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR THE MALE DANCER CLEAR ~ I recommend that you provide a written description/list of what you expect from the exotic male dancer. An email will work for this. Just make sure that the dancer did receive the email. Include the following information in the email.
- What time should the dancer be ready to perform? What time is his gig finished?
- How much are you going to pay him?
- What costuming do you expect? Ask him to wear something that reflects your theme. Also, ask him to bring 3 choices. That way if you do not like the first one, you have two other options. This also will provide costume changes should he need them.
- What is their responsibilities for the night? Go-go dancer standing on a box? Work the room and act like a host? Will they be doing audience participation events like lap dances, birthday celebrations, etc.?
- What are the limits for audience interaction? A private party is less formal than dancing at a club or public event. Nudity is often allowed and/or encouraged, or even required. Make sure that you and the dancer have an understanding of what will be required for the gig as it relates to audience participation. Determine this up front before you agree to hire the dancer. When everyone knows the expectations, it helps eliminate any misunderstandings.
- Provide a safe place for dancer to store their things while performing. The last thing you want is to be responsible for replacing items stolen from the dancer while he is performing at your party. Most will travel to your place and change into costume, underwear, etc., once they have arrived. A room or place where their personal items can be locked up would be helpful and considerate.
- PAY THE MALE DANCER AFTER THEY HAVE FINISHED
- Once their job is completed and they are ready to leave, pay the dancer what you owe them.
- If you have agreed to pay by check, then have it filled out, signed and hand it to them
- If you are paying cash, create a receipt of cash payment and have them sign it. Then hand them the agreed amount in cash. I like to add a little extra for a tip, if and only if, they did an exceptional job entertaining.
- Some dancers will require prepayment and do accept credit cards.
