Mike's Top Ten For 2013
Clubs For Exotic Male Dancers
In North America

   In this blog we present our choices for the Top 10 Clubs For Exotic Male Dancers in North America for the year. Let me make this clear. This list is subjective. The selections are based on feedback we have received from our blog readers, friends, emails, facebook posts, twitter posts and personal visits by our staff or representatives. The list is not in any particular order so they should be viewed as a group. Our list saw a big change from the past. There are still some familiar names but several new names have been added, and some old friends have been dropped from the list. We welcome your feedback and comments toward creating the list for 2014.
   Swinging Richard's - Atlanta

   The men at Swinging Richard's deliver time after time. Several of our blog readers had an exceptionally good time at the club during 2013. We've been watching this club for several years they are consistently high quality in beautiful male dancers. And they dance fully nude. Swinging Richard's in Atlanta has remained my favorite male strip club for several years.

   No Parking Bar - NYC
   No Parking Bar first came to our attention from the HOT photos they were posting on facebook. The dancer's were amazing. Then when some of our blog readers discovered the bar for themselves, their popularity with our fans began to rise.

   Here - West Hollywood
   With it's Stripper Circus and Hooker Casino nights, Here had our attention. They experienced a little hiccup this past year supposedly because of lewd conduct by go-go dancers. Well...I don't say those allegations are true, I just say that, the report made me like them even more. Their grand reopening is January 3.

   Share Nightclub - Las Vegas
   Based in America's Party City, Las Vegas, Share Nightclub provides the place to dance the night away. But it's also for those who seek a drink and some excellent eye candy. Your pleasure can be found while watching the movements of the go-go boys.

   Stock Bar - Montreal
   Our neighbors to the north have become known for their sexy male dancers. The city of Montreal is home to several male strip clubs worth visiting. We like Stock Bar because they make it possible to share the experience with live streaming online. Hot and nude male strippers with sexy French accents. It's a combination that stirs one up inside.

   Boxers N Briefs - St. Louis
   A great place to celebrate your birthday! I have. A great place to enjoy watching and tipping male strippers. Place those dollar bills in their socks because that is often all they are wearing. It's one of those unique places where you can make friends with the dancers and staff as well.

   Real Luck Cafe (Luckys) - Pittsburgh
   Luckys, as the locals call it, was introduced to us this past year and we took notice. One of our representatives was in the area and chose to check out what the club had to offer. Our rep was impressed and so glad he decided to visit. So glad, that he wrote a review which was posted in a blog.

  • Facebook

   BJsNXs - Dallas
   The cliche is that "Everything is bigger in Texas." Well, our experience has found that to be true. That has brought us back many times to BJsNXs in Dallas. We have become acquainted with former dancers and current dancers at the club who show us without any doubt that 'big things' can be found in this state. Our talented photographer friend, C. Marcelo, often captures the boys with his camera as in the pic above.

   XRoom at Mardi Gra - Springfield, MA
   Several of our blog readers make regular treks to see the XRoom male strippers. The former Xstatic group moved this past year to be a part of the XRoom at Mardi Gra. We know of fans who will travel across New England to visit and tip their favorite dancers at XRoom. With that type of fan loyalty, we felt they deserved to be placed once again in our top ten.

   Adonis Lounge - NYC
   Adonis Lounge has found a way to obtain both quantity and quality at the same time. Twice each week they present some of the hottest men on the planet. And where else can you go to see 30+ male dancers at one time? I recommend you click the link to their website and sign up for their email newsletter. You'll get a preview of which guys will be performing that week.

   That's our Top Ten for 2013! I'm sure there are other clubs that host some great dancers as well. Let us know about them. We'll keep our eyes open and watch them for 2014. Before I close the blog I have one last honorable mention. I adopted a bar a few years ago to be my home bar for exotic male dancers. This bar is Mojo's in Tulsa, OK. I try to visit the bar any time that I can. Tracie, Brian, Wes, Steve and all the dancers and staff always make me feel at home. And I always have a good time when there. If ever in the area, stop in for a visit and see the Men Of Mojo's. Tell them Mike from Males In Motion sent you.
   Until next time, get out and find your Top Ten in 2014 and let us know about them. And most importantly, don't forget to tip the boyz!

Male Stripper Costume Tip 8:
Selecting Exotic Male Dancer Costumes

Photo Source: G Lounge ~ NYC
   If you're in it to make money, then stand out from the rest! I've mentioned before that sexy underwear is great and the fans love it! But try adding something that tugs at the fantasies of the crowd. This will help your tips to increase, and your customers to return again and again.
   I recommend that you go for a specific look and then add a costume within that look. Let me explain. There are a few basic types that stir the imaginations of your fans. These include the boy toy, physical perfection, the beast, and the out-of-reach straight guy. You may be able to play each of these roles, or a combination of them at once.

   The Boy Toy is a fantasy of many 'mature' men and women. A hot, sexy or beautiful young man who exists for their pleasure. He's the type of person who might be taken care of by a sugar daddy or sugar momma. His role is to always look good and give attention to the person who is showing interest. He is generally slim to muscular. The Boy Toy plays the game that if the customer tips right, there may be other opportunities for play later. I'm not saying there will be. I'm saying that's the game. To dress as the Boy Toy select underwear and costume items to fit...examples would be Robin, the Boy Wonder; sports themes (football receiver, baseball catcher, soccer player); pool boy; skate boarder; and college student. The non-themed self-created fashion statement costumes would fit in this category as well.

   The dancer who who can pull off Physical Perfection is the one who has the face, athletic body, and of course is hung! He's the one that makes many weak in the knees. He is the jock, the fantasy lover, the superhero, the star quarterback, and more. His role is to promote the image of sexual prowess. He is the one who will be the best, shall I say fuck! He is more likely to be in charge of any sexual situation. His game goes like this, 'yes, you can have me but it is going to cost you, but I'll be worth it'. It doesn't mean he's a sure thing and you'll get what you want. It just means that he can tease you and you'll love every minute of it. To dress as the adonis select underwear and costume items that accentuate the body and puts it on display. Underwear should pull 'the boys' forward and cling so there's very little left to the imagination. When possible a jockstrap should be included to allow a view of the perfect bubble butt. Costume themes include Superhero, military, sports superstar, motorcycle rider, fireman and cowboy.

   The Beast represents the larger than life type character. This can include the body builder, the leather master in control, or a supernatural being. The beast is the overpowering presence to whom the fan gives in and becomes submissive. His game is 'I am in control and I will do with you as I wish. I will treat you as I wish and you will like it.' To dress as the beast means everything is planned out and displays dominance. Costumes would include leather master, police and authority figures, military leadership, supernatural creatures like the wolfman, vampire, X-men and others. Boots of different types can represent dominance. It's sexy to display confidence, but avoid arrogance, conceit or superiority. Emphasize I'm in control and I know how to make you enjoy it.

   The out-of-reach straight guy is the boy next door or the hottie in the house down the street. He's the type of person who may be an executive in suit and tie by day but party animal at night. He may also be the pizza delivery boy or the fraternity guy at the local college. He's straight and likes the ladies but just maybe, under the right circumstances, he might look in the direction of the gay guy. He's the one that knows you check him out when he's laying out by the pool catching some sun. He also knows that you watch his ass as he walks by. He doesn't mind, in fact, he's kind of flattered. The out-of-reach straight guy is more an attitude than a costume. He's the guy that can tease that he's straight, 'but for you, I might change...'. The attitude is one of confidence but not arrogance or vanity. Costumes include accessories like baseball caps and other hats, sunglasses or eyeglasses, neck jewelry, and neckties. The out-of-reach straight guy is not as body conscious. He has a nice body but he isn't obsessed with carbs, exercise or the six-pack.

   All of these types will attract different fans. Create a personal wardrobe of dance costumes that will appeal to different personalities. Try different costumes on the same night and see what gets attention. Some of you are destined to play one particular role due to your body build or personality, But that's not a negative, since you know what type you are, build on it and learn to work it for the cash.
   Until next time, FYI...I am attracted to boy toys and physical perfection. Play that role on me and I'm easy. The money in my pocket will become yours. And as I've said many times before, if you're able to throw on a pair of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, well, I'll be broke before the night is over. And please, don't show me where the ATM machine is, I'll need to save some cash for my monthly bills.

The Underwear Whore
Be Smarter Than
The Marketing Of Men's Underwear

   I love shopping for men's underwear. I love giving men's underwear as gifts. I love selecting men's underwear for photo shoots. I love selecting men's underwear for costuming at events involving exotic male dancers. This is no secret. I have an underwear fetish and I think that i can safely say that I share this fetish with most exotic male dancers. I like looking at it and touching it. They like wearing it.
   However, let me be clear! Just because a pair of underwear costs a lot of money, doesn't mean it's going to look good on every body that wears it. And I've known some inexpensive underwear that can make a guy look like an Adonis, and increase the tips for an exotic male dancer.
   If you're buying underwear for the label, you're buying it for yourself. Most exotic male dancer fans could not care less about what brand of underwear the dancer is wearing. All they care about is if 'the boyz' and the butt look good while they are wearing them. The rest of the time they are trying to find out what the male dancer looks like without the underwear.
   Having worked with male dancers and models of varying body types, heights, etc., I can accurately state that not all bodies are created equal and not all underwear fits those bodies equally either. There are underwear styles that look amazing on tall men, but do nothing for the shorter guys. Factor in whether you have a great butt or large package, and it pays to do a little more research.
   There are so many different brands, styles, colors, etc., of underwear these days. Men have so many options from which to choose. I love the big dollars that are spent on advertising for underwear these days. Andrew Christian comes to mind immediately. He has the Trophy Boys (above pic), Online model contest, mini-music videos, and more. He regularly has a new crop of hot male models wearing his underwear. This is one more confirmation that there is a lot of money to be made in the male underwear industry. Much more than there used to be.
   Before you go and spend the big bucks on a pair of brand name underwear, run a little test. Check out the name brand underwear and find a style and color that you like. Then go to ebay and purchase a similar style knock-off from a Chinese vendor. Most of these you can purchase for less than $10 and some for under $5. Once they arrive, try them on and see how they fit. Most importantly ask someone who will be honest to tell you how they look on you. If they look great and you like them, then splurge and spend the money for the name brand pair that you want. This will help you avoid making costly mistakes because you like the way some hot male model or porn star looks in a particular pair of underwear.
   Until next time, good luck with the underwear selection. I hope something I've said will help you make a wise purchase that improves the tips. And feel free to send me pics of you in your new underwear. :D Send to And remember...tip the boyz! Also, they might like a new pair of underwear. Just think about them wearing a pair of underwear that you picked out for them.
NOTE: Click on any of the pics in this blog to find out more about that specific underwear.

Tuesday Nights Have Grown Up!
Feel The Heat With The BuffBoyzz

   Tuesday Nights have grown up! No longer is the night reserved for boring meetings or finding something to watch from the sofa. Tuesday has taken on a life of its own! A life that involves hot men in sexy underwear ready to make you the center of attention.
   You see, Tuesdays have become the night of the lap dance. Tuesday is now the night for bringing exceptional men like Rubin (featured in the pics) right to you. Or, to your lap that is. And it all happens at the Bartini Ultra Lounge at 642 10th Ave, New York, NY.
   So, how does this work? How do you become the focus of a hot male dancer? The guys enter the stage one at a time in sexy underwear and introduce themselves by dancing for three songs. After that, they are free to give you attention and perform lap dances. This means you get to watch and see which dancers you might want to see up close and personal.
   An added bonus is that it all starts at 6:00pm with happy hour drink prices lasting until 9:00pm. It's the perfect way to unwind from your day, and give in to the primal urges. You can still say you're going to that boring meeting on Tuesday nights. We'll never tell. It will be our little secret.
   The next step is to clear your calendar on Tuesday nights of any conflicts. Start tonight and enjoy your new grown up activities. Until next time, stay warm with a lap dance or two (or three...).

Getting Lucky In Pittsburgh!
The locals call it Lucky's

I posted a review that Robb wrote back in July. Here is a second from him. Thanks Robb! Great job!

   The locals call it Lucky’s but if you want to look for it on facebook or the web you will need to search for its full name, the Real Luck Café. Located in Pittsburgh’s Strip District (how convenient!) it is what you would think a gay dive bar would look like from the outside. You have to enter from the side door which seemed a little sketchy because you have to walk down this uneven walkway with a chain linked fence on one side and the bar on the other. Don’t let this scare you away because the fun is only a short walk inside.
   When you enter Lucky’s you are in the downstairs part. It looks like a neighborhood bar with a U shaped bar and tables and booths. They also serve food here but we did not have any food while we were there. As you look around you will see a door with a sign that says male dancers upstairs. So of course that is where my attention went! You walk up this steep, dark old wooden staircase as the DJ music gets louder and louder As you round a corner and go up a couple of more steps you are now on the 2nd floor.
   The first thing I saw was a rectangular shaped bar with four nude male dancers working at each of the four corners. I was in a bit of shock I think because I was not expecting so many dancers at one time. It was a very pleasant surprise. In the middle of the bar were two bartenders. The bar has barstools all around it and then there are some tables around the walls. This allows you to get up close and personal with the dancer boys or to watch from a far. Towards the front are a DJ booth and a small dance floor. Now I know what you all are thinking. Shut up and tell us about the damn strippers already!
So as I said there were 4 dancer boys for the crowd’s entertainment. The first one I watched was a skinny twink guy that looked barely old enough to be dancing on the bar. He showed very little emotion when I tipped him a dollar and I just was not really into him that much. He was getting a lot of attention from some of the patrons though but he just was not exciting enough for my taste. Next was another skinny twink type of guy. He had a lot of tattoos and a pink Mohawk. Normally I would not have gone for a guy like this but when I tipped him he bent down and told me thank you and he hoped I was ready to enjoy my night. I like that he was working for the money so even though he wasn’t my normal type he got several dollars from me.
   The third guy was the body type I LOVE! He was more of a beefy, muscular guy that looked like he played on the football team in high school. When I tipped him he said “thank you kind “sir”. I was both offended and flattered at the same time! Needless to say I kept tipping him over the few hours I was there. He knew how to work me because each time he said thank you but changed it up. It went from sir, to mister, to babe, to sweetheart. Needless to say he was sexy and he knew how to work it to get more of my money!
   The 4th guy was actually my absolute favorite of the boys at Lucky’s that night. He was this tall, muscular black guy that had the sexiest body. Let’s just say he had a lot to look at while he danced. Every time I gave him some money he would bend down to say something to me. When he bent down his equipment would get very close to my face. In fact a couple of times he member brushed against my neck or my hand. Needless to say I did not complain at all. He was so sexy. His light mocha color skin and that tight body were just too hot to handle. I think he got over 10 bucks out of me alone just because I couldn’t keep my eyes off of him. If you did not come up to him he would motion for you to come back and see him up close and personal. He knew how to work it and he was making the most money out of the guys that night for sure with all of the customers.
   So all the boys have on while they are dancing on the bar at Lucky’s is an elastic band around one of their thighs where you put your tips. If they get off the bar for a break they put their underwear on and leave the room. They were not mingling with the crowd at all. Each bar has different rules and Lucky’s must not want their dancer boys working off the bar.
   The dancers rotate about every other song so if you do sit at one of the tables over by the wall you get a new dancer every 10 minutes or so for your viewing pleasure. My only gripe with this place was that the music was really loud so you could not have a real conversation with the dancers, bartenders, or your friends you were with without shouting. Also women are welcomed at Lucky’s as well. There were not very many of the busy Saturday night I was there but be prepared for this. It is considered a gay bar but the strippers are welcoming to both men and women. Equal opportunity I guess! Overall I would highly suggest you go visit Lucky’s the next time you are in Pittsburgh. I wish I would have gone the first night I was there so I could have enjoyed two nights at the bar. Rest assured the next time I am in Pittsburgh I will be stopping by to see the boys of Lucky’s dance on the bar!
Until next time,

Let Me Hear You Say ...mmmmmmmmm!
Muscles, MEN of skin, Missy B's, Mary's and Museums in Kansas City

   Let's go to Kansas City then! My partner and I were in desperate need of a few days off. It had been a long time since we had experienced some real 'R And R'. We knew we didn't want to drive very far and we didn't have the budget to fly, so we chose Kansas City. It was only a 3 1/2 hour drive from our home and he had never been and I hadn't been in a few years. So it was settled.

   Well, the first thing I do when planning any trip is to see where the naked or near-naked boys are dancing. Then I plan my trip around it. Yes, I honestly plan my trips around the dancing boys. Hey, it's my thing. I'm not fishing, hunting or going to the game. I'm going to watch the sexy men do their thing on a stage, box or in my lap. I knew the Men Of Skin were based out of Kansas City, the boys were so kind to oblige and let me know that they would be dancing at both Sidekicks Saloon and Missy B's. (Thanks Ryan!)

   We drove in to KC on Thursday. After the drive we stretched our legs at Legends Outlet Mall and did a little shopping. Yes, there was some of that regular shopping like I needed a new light weight jacket. Got it. But then I went into photographer and exotic male dancer sponsor mode and began looking for underwear and costume ideas. This is a pleasurable way to shop. I keep the mental image of the male model or male dancer whose body I am going to put this underwear or costume on. My fantasies get to run wild. Of course, I have to stop and evaluate my budget in every store or I'll go crazy and spend every cent I own.

   On Friday morning we decided some culture was in order. We spent several hours at the Nelson-Atkins Museum. A day of temperature and weather perfection was given to us so we spent a lot of the time outside in the sculpture gardens. I enjoy the museums but I can't step out of the photographer mentality and spend most of my time taking photos of artwork, architecture and the people I am with.

(Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital)
   Then it came time for the BIG NIGHT....these always involve great food and entertainment. We began our Friday night at Hamburger Mary's feasting on some of the largest hamburgers I have ever seen. This was our first visit to Mary's. It's dinner and drag. You eat while watching a show. There was a mix of show tunes, old pop classics, and a drag queen in full drag costume, full makeup and sporting a full beard. That was interesting. It was for a no shave November fundraiser we were told. Drag shows are entertaining but I'll have to make a confession. While at Mary's I spent more of my time watching the cute waiters and the DJ, than the performers. It seems we were at Mary's a week early for our interests, the Men Of Skin were scheduled to be the featured performers the next weekend.

   We left Mary's and headed to the Sidekicks Saloon. The regularly scheduled drag show started soon after we arrived. Most notable was the performances of Mrs. Jones...very entertaining. Immediately following the show Eli and Superman of Men Of Skin stepped out and heated up the room. They showed their moves around the dance floor but more importantly stepped into the audience and did a little one-on-one time. I had watched both of them before and it was great seeing them dance again. If you stop in at Sidekicks Saloon look for bartender Shari. We were at the back bar where she was working for the night...very attentive and took care of us. Shari, have you checked the weather? ***smile***

   The night went to full-tilt when we stepped upstairs at Missy B's where Baron and Carson of Men of Skin were dancing. The word 'hot' is just too common to describe these two. The guys had given me permission to take a few promo photos so I went to work. Well, if you can call it work. It was a perfect night for watching the dancing boyz. Baron it was great to see you again and I'm happy for you and all your success this past year. Carson, it was definitely my pleasure to meet (and watch) you. Both of these guys can be called gentlemen in the way they interact with the crowd which was very diverse. I don't mean 'gentlemen' as prudes, I mean in how they help EVERYONE feel comfortable and have a good time. I mean, I was perfectly comfortable having my hand taken in theirs and guided across their bodies, yes, perfectly comfortable.

(Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital)
   Back to Baron and Carson. I watched as these guys gave out hugs, posed with customers for pics, graciously accepted tips and said 'thank you'. And the most impressive part is that it didn't matter who you were, whether you were gay or straight, male or female, old or young, everyone was met with the same charm, sexy smiles, and muscles. Ok, I'm going to stop here a minute and daydream about the muscles... just go about your day ... I'll return in a moment. (There's me, Baron, Carson and their muscles.) mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! ...........................................................

(Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital)
   Now where was I...oh yea, KC was perfect for my partner and I. We found what we needed and had a lot of fun. And of course, saw the dancing boys, bouncing balls, and muscles. I recommend KC for your getaway. Stop in at Sidekicks Saloon and grab a drink...say Hi to Shari. Then finish the night at Missy B's with the Men Of Skin.

(Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital)
   Until next time, don't forget the muscles....and to tip those muscles. Those boys deserve a tip just for always looking so good for our pleasure!!! (One last note, it is now my opinion that the male thong was created with Carson in mind.)
