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.

   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

   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.
