I've Seen The Future
I Was In Pittsburgh And Dick Was There!

   The elderly gentleman stepped from his seat at the end of the bar and moved to the dancer box where the hot young nude male was dancing. Not being allowed to touch the nude dancer, he dropped several dollar bills onto the dancer box in front of the bare feet. He returned to his seat at the bar. A few minutes later he got up again and repeated the tipping process. I watched him do this seven or eight times during the dancer's first session. Each time the dancer would lean down and thank the old man. The thought popped into my mind, "That's me in a few years." A big smile spread across my face. I'd seen my future and I could live with that.
   It was a rainy, stormy night in Pittsburgh. You could feel that a heavy downpour was about to commence but for now it was clear. We parked in a nearby Pep Boys lot and walked to PTown Bar. Upon entering the bar, all eyes turned toward the three of us. As you step inside the entrance, there is a long bar to the right of the room. There were 10-12 customers sitting around the bar. This was a neighborhood type bar and it was obvious they were regulars. You could read their faces. Who are these people? They are not one of us.
   To the left of the bar in front was the box for the dancer, and several high tables with chairs toward the back. We stopped at the bar and got a beer, then sat down at one of the tables. It was only a few minutes before a tall, slim yet muscular dancer made his way to the box. He was wearing underwear which he slid off as soon as he stepped up and began to dance.
   His name was Brett, mid 20s, and during the night we found out he danced to make extra cash to pay the bills. He had a nice body with a great ass. His endowment was above average and swung ever so proudly from his shaved crotch. I followed the example of the elderly man and made my way to the box and dropped a few dollars. The dancer leaned down and thanked me.

   The music was way too loud to have much of a conversation with Brett when tipping but he dropped by our table selling jello shots and we were able to visit with him then. We didn't buy the jello shots, just kept slipping tips into his waistband.

   I recommend PTown for a starting place or a stop on your night of bar hopping. Depending on the dancer, it is worth a visit. Brett was the only dancer the night we visited PTown. There was no cover and the parking at the Pep Boys lot was free. The bar was easy to get to and beers were priced about the same as other bars of its kind, $3.25-$4 plus tips.
   Until next time, I hope you see dick in your future. And remember to drop those dollars on the box!

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.
"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.

   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 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!"
