F*ck 'em with your eyes
Without touching them
Five tips from someone who has been there.

   My friend Tracie danced as an exotic female dancer for 15 years. She later managed and operated both female and male strip clubs including one of my all-time favorites, Mojo's in Tulsa, OK. She and her family have moved to Georgia and I was so excited when she joined me for my birthday celebration this year at Swinging Richard's in Atlanta. (Click here and read about that fun night!) Between the vodka drinks and slipping dollar bills into the armbands of the dancing boys, I asked Tracie to share some of her thoughts on what she always looked for when hiring an exotic male dancer. The result is below.

   ONE: The first and most important thing before you go any further is, "are they of legal age?" For us it was 21 plus. Of course, proof with ID was required.

   TWO: Do they have a clean and neat appearance? Did they arrive for the audition in clean clothes and hair? Do they practice proper hygiene? They must be clean and know how to take care of themselves and their bodies.

   THREE: What is their health and fitness level? Beauty does come in all shapes and sizes but you don't want to see someone unhealthy on the stage in their underwear. The dancers are the customer's fantasy. Do they have the appropriate appearance to fit that image?

   FOUR: What type of attitude do they bring to the audition/interview? Do they engage you and keep you interested? If they are an 'asshole', it is an immediate turn off. It they are a jerk to me then more than likely they will also be one to the customers. I look for someone who is friendly. They can be cocky and arrogant as long as they don't go too far with it. A little cockiness can sometimes be a turn on. As long as they have the looks and body to back it up. Also, one goal of the exotic male dancer is to help the customer forget their problems while at the club. We all have issues in our lives. The customer shouldn't have to hear about the problems of the male dancer. If a customer has to listen to a dancer's bitching, moaning and groaning, they will stay home and save their $$.

   FIVE: I always liked to make my employees feel like a part of a work family. It is important to determine how well a potential dancer will fit in with the current 'family'.
   Believe it or not, I never felt it necessary that they be great dancers. They can be taught everything on the stage, pole, etc. One word of advice I gave them and would give to any potential male dancer is use your eyes, "fuck 'em with your eyes without touching them."
   Do you have a question for Tracie? You can message her on her facebook page.

   Special thanks to Tracie for sharing her unique perspective in this blog. We will be posting more from Tracie in the future. She has many nuggets of wisdom that I feel can help male dancers, owners, managers, show directors, etc. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boys. And if they know how to use their eyes... tip them double!

They Like It Ruff
Live Dangerously
Always Looking For Trouble
The Boys Of Ohio

   A few years ago, a good friend of mine moved near Columbus, Ohio. Up until that time I was not very familiar with the state of Ohio except for passing through on a few road trips, and its reputation for great sports teams.

   Over the years I corrupted my friend with my enjoyment of exotic male dancers and he has become a fan as well. So, in order to assist him in finding fun opportunities to tip the boys, I have kept a closer eye on the state of Ohio. I have been very, very pleased at what I have discovered.

   There are several dancing boys who are featured weekly at many of the clubs in the state. You'll find them in Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo, Akron, and I'm sure many other places as well. I've included pics of several in this blog so you'll know what I mean, and you'll be able to recognize them on your next visit.

   I've also included listings for some of the clubs where they have been known to cause a stir. It is inevitable that I will miss some of the favorites for both dancers and clubs. So, if your favorites are not in this blog, please add them in the comments below.

   If you would like to book one of the boys at your bar, club or event... click on their pic. That will take you to their Facebook page. Send a message and find out how you can watch and tip them up close and personal!

UPDATE: Dontae and Jordan have retired from dancing as of September 2016
   Like what you see? Well, if you don't live in Ohio. That's ok. These boys like to travel. Of course, you'll need to make it worth their while. You won't be disappointed. Jorden Marlo and Dontae Morningwood were recently down south in Alabama. I'm thinking that both of them must have to order special pants. There's no way that regular pants, right off the rack, will fit around their junk. No way.

   If all goes as planned, I will be in Ohio in October. I will be staying in the area for several days and tracking down as many of these boys as I can. That means lots of bar hopping and lots of tipping. It will be tough, but I will do my very best to see that I slide my fingers into each and every waistband.

   Until next time, don't forget to tip the boys in Ohio or whatever state you are in! I'll say my goodbyes now. I'm leaving to hang a do-not-disturb sign on my door. I want to go turn on a knight-lite!

All Nude - Xcellently Xceeding Xpectations
Club Review: Swinging Richards
Atlanta, GA

Visit Our New Website!
   There is a small group of male strip clubs that consistently remain at the top of my favorites list. One of them is Swinging Richards in Atlanta, GA. Over the years I have been to this club several times. I have never been disappointed, and each visit seems to be better than the previous one. It is no surprise then, that for my birthday this year, I chose SR as the place I wanted to be to celebrate! I am grateful to three of my best friends who accompanied me for the night. And made sure I got back to the hotel safely!
   The club opens at 8:00pm on Friday night. We arrived around 9:30pm before it was crowded so we could get a table near the front stage. Parking is available in a lot connected to the property and costs $5.00 for the night. We paid the $10 cover and entered the world of fantasy. The first stop was the bar where they were running vodka specials for the night. With first drink in hand, I selected a table near the middle of the front stage where I could get a full view of any dancer that stepped up on the stage.
   There was one slim, nice looking dancer on the stage as we sat down. Before long the stage had up to four or five dancers at a time. The normal procedure that is followed goes like this...first song - dancers are in clothes, second song - dancers are in their underwear, and the third song - all is revealed. Depending on how well the dancers are being tipped, the clothes may be removed sooner or later.
   The night was spent with strong drinks, great conversation, lots of laughter and dollar bills being slipped into arm bands. Since the boys do go fully nude, they wear armbands for tips. Each of us quickly found our favorites. For my partner Jay, he liked Derrick, Angel, Mark and Miller. While seated at our table, Jay also obtained a very much enjoyed lap dance from Mark. Our friend Rob who had met us in Atlanta enjoyed the talents of Ace, Miller, Mayhem, Carter and Brad. Our friend Tracie, a former female dancer and club owner herself, is now a Georgian. She drove from outside Atlanta to meet us. She was partial to Raphael, Justin and Lotto. Thanks for the round of drinks Tracie. I'll buy the first round the next time we're together.
   I will admit that I was like a kid in a candy store all night. There were so many sexy dancers that I enjoyed tipping and watching. However, there were three that stood out for me. First, like Tracy, I liked Lotto. Lotto was popular and performed several lap dances at tables around us. He is the choice for the gay men with straight boy fantasies. The ladies loved him, and he loved the ladies. But, he was just as engaging and fun for the gay men as well. For me, he had the best body of the bunch which looked good from all directions. His handsome face and other impressive assets caused me to keep him into view as much as possible.
   Second, Justin spent time at our table throughout the night. He was content to just stop by and visit, flirt and check to see if we were still having fun. He wasn't pushy or overbearing. He kept us entertained and of course, we played our part in keeping him around with tips. He performed a lap dance or two at our table.
   Without question, my favorite dancer of the night was Jeremiah. He was "fine" from head to toe. The night started with my noticing him at the front stage and tipping him. And I was hooked after that. Great body, great looks, fun personality, and he knows how to give the eye with a sly smile. It just wasn't fair. I had no resistance. But of course, I wasn't trying very hard to resist either.
   At different times Rob and I both enjoyed the VIP Lounge. The price is $10 for the evening, and you can come and go as you please. I recommend it. Rob enjoyed a lap dance in the VIP lounge with Carter which he described as "Amazing!". He also enjoyed a lap dance with Brad, a dancer with a sexy nerd look as well. I enjoyed lap dances in the VIP area from three different dancers. Jeremiah, of course, and two different dancers from Cuba. I can't remember their names because at this point, the vodka drinks were doing the talking and not much listening. I do remember having fun though!!! It costs $20 per song in the VIP area, so be sure and let them know how many songs you are wanting.
   If you were to ask my com-padres about the ending of the night, they would say that I had abandoned them and disappeared into the VIP Lounge. And if you continue to listen to their story, they will say that they were almost thrown out of the club at closing time while I was no where to be found. They even said my name had been announced over the speaker several times because I needed to close my tab at the bar. Well, I don't remember any of that happening. Of course, it might have been during the time that I was shouting "Viva La Cuba!" in the VIP Lounge.
   I recommend that you make Swinging Richards a destination for a vacation, weekend getaway, etc. I know I'll be back. My friends recommend that you spend time with Ace, Derrick and Raphael, among others. I highly recommend some male stripper experiences with Jeremiah. Until next time, get lost in a VIP Lounge with your favorite male stripper. And as always, don't forget to tip the boys!!!
