2016 Blog Of Fame ~ The Exceptional From The Exotic Male Dancer Entertainment Industry

Photo Source: Michael Hill Digital
   This past year has been what I would call a banner year for the exotic male dancer entertainment industry. I have personally tipped my way through many cities across the U.S. Even though it is the male dancers, their large endowments and bubble butts that get the attention, there are also a lot of people that work behind the strip polls providing support that keeps the industry strong.
   I want to acknowledge a few of these that I have either personally come in contact with, or I have observed their contribution to the industry. And there are of course male dancers that were added to my personal favorites list during the year. There are so many that it would be impossible to list them all, so I chose two. Please view this "Blog Of Fame" as a sample of some of the best in the industry. They are my favorites for the year 2016. As you think of some of your own favorites, please return to your local bars/clubs/events that feature exotic male dancers, and let them know how much you appreciate what they do to keep the boyz dancin'!
Favorite Gatekeeper ~ Craig Henson
Area 18 ~ Tulsa, Oklahoma

   Each bar and club has one or more people who greet you as you enter the door. It is their responsibility to check ID's for age requirements, collect cover charge if there is one, greet the customers, and answer any questions that they might have. These gatekeepers have the responsibility for setting the tone for beginning the experience each person will have that night. Males In Motion recognizes Craig Henson at Area 18 in Tulsa, OK as one of the best gatekeepers in the business. As we enter the door, we are always greeted with a smile which is followed by a big hug. That my friends, is a great start to a good night at a club.

Favorite Promo Pics ~ Gavin Becks
Columbus, Ohio

   Pics and videos posted to social media are powerful promotional tools. Some male dancers see this opportunity and take full advantage of it. One of those is Gavin Becks. I am constantly teasing him about 'snagging' every pic of his that he posts online. Part of that is because I think he is so damn cute. The other part is that he posts some of the most creative and interesting promotional pics. Males In Motion recognizes Gavin Becks as one of the best in using pics for promoting his entertainment value. Click here and learn my opinion of Gavin when I saw him at Axis Nightclub in Columbus, OH. You can also click here and see Gavin and several of the boys from Ohio featured in a June 2016 blog.

Favorite Bartender ~ James Kennedy
X-Room at Mardi Gras ~ Springfield, Massachusetts

   A bartender can make or break the customer's experience at a bar or club. The right attitude contributes to the fun and/or escape the customer may be wishing for on any given night. Describing bartender James Kennedy is of course, like mixing a cocktail. Combine an ounce of the right brand of flirt, an ounce of showmanship, and two ounces of top-shelf sexy. Shake them all together and pour and strain inside a body where both the cock and the tail are impressive. There's no need for ice, he's already chilled. Males In Motion recognizes James Kennedy as one of the best bartenders at a club with exotic male dancers. Personally, I'd go to the club just to see James alone. And that is saying a lot when surrounding him every night at X-Room at Mardi Gras in Springfield, Massachusetts, are naked male dancers. Click here and read how James performed his bartender duties on a previous visit of ours to X-Room.

Favorite Event Night ~ FRESH At Flaming Saddles
West Hollywood, California

   Cowboys are alive and well deep in the heart of Southern California. And when they are dancing in cowboy hats, cowboy boots and underwear. Well, I'm going to take notice. But not only are they cowboys but darn it, they are really, really hot male dancer cowboys. Then to top it all off, Tyler Booth is one of the bartenders. This combination requires that Males In Motion recognize FRESH at Flaming Saddles in West Hollywood, California as one of the best event nights featuring exotic male dancers. Click here and check out the photo albums on their Facebook page and see how many pics have been taken by Jason King, one of our favorite photographers.

Favorite DJ/Dancer Manager ~ Wes Bigfeather
Area 18 ~ Tulsa, Oklahoma

Photo Source: Wes Bigfeather Facebook
    A DJ who is aware of the important role music plays in the exotic male dancer entertainment experience is crucial to the success of a club that features exotic male dancers. Music can raise the party to the next level or bring it to a stand still, literally with the dancers standing still. I've been privileged to enjoy the musical magic of DJ Wes Bigfeather for several years. In the music they hear and feel, the dancing boys at Area 18 are given a mix of yesterday and today, theme nights, personal requests and more. Males In Motion recognizes DJ Wes Bigfeather as one of the best in providing music that motivates the boys to move the way we like them to move. With a measured dose of humor, DJ Wes also keeps the party hopping and the customers smiling...and buying drinks, and buying underwear in the AC store, and tipping the dancers and bartenders, and staying informed about upcoming events, etc. Click here and watch the dancers response to the music in the video clips of KO and Ballers Choice.

Favorite Go-Go Bear ~ Sterling Johnson
Columbus, Ohio

Photo Source: Sterling Johnson Facebook
   The world of exotic male dancers is dominated by smooth chested muscle boys and young twinks. When we come across a dancer who is neither, it sparks our interest. And when he is as hot as Sterling Johnson, we think, maybe we should take another look...then another...then another. We met Sterling Johnson when he was dancing at Tremont Lounge in Columbus, OH. The club is a smaller venue with a more intimate atmosphere. We were happy about that because it gave us a chance to be up close and personal with Mr. Sterling. Males In Motion recognizes Sterling Johnson as an outstanding entertainer, go-go bear and please sir, may we call you "Daddy"?, who successfully makes his own path through the exotic male dancer world.

Favorite Male Review ~ Men Of Skin
Kansas City, Missouri

Photo Source: Men Of Skin
   We first noticed the Men Of Skin back in 2013 when we traveled to Wichita, KS to see them perform. Based in Kansas City, MO the Men Of Skin provide sexy male dancer entertainment that is more than just very pleasing eye candy. The reason we like the MOS boys is also for more than just their smokin' bodies. First, they have a strong work ethic. If you hire them, you can be confident they will bring the show. They are customer centered. I've watched as they work the crowd, both female and male, making sure each and every person there is having a good time. You can hire them for a male review show, or individual dancers as go-go boys, etc. I haven't quite reached groupie status but I have followed them to various cities around the south and midwest. Males In Motion recognizes the Men Of Skin as one of the best Male Reviews. We look forward to watching many more shows. Click here and travel back to 2013 to read the review of our first encounter with Men Of Skin.

Favorite Online Broadcast ~ Stockbar
Montreal, QC, Canada

Photo Source: Stockbar
   Stockbar in Montreal, Quebec may actually have the only nightly broadcast from a male nude strip club. There is never a doubt about the quality of male dancers at Stockbar. Year after year they feature some of the most beautiful men from Canada. Each night you can watch the boys step out on the stage and strip to fully nude. There is also a live spy cam that allows you to watch the dancers as they get ready to go on stage. You also have the ability to chat with others who are online at the same time. When I've chatted, we talk about which dancers we like the best, and of course go into more detail about a specific dancer's physical assets. Males In Motion recognizes Stockbar in Montreal, Quebec as the best in online entertainment for fans of exotic male dancers. Click here and see for yourself. There are short clips from past shows in the dancers section which you can watch for free. You can also click here and read our review when we watched the boys in the club, and made a visit to the VIP area for a private lap dance, or two, or three...

Favorite Photographer ~ Jason King
West Hollywood, California

Photo Source: Jason King Facebook
   We started following Photographer Jason King in 2015. We've been fans for a while specifically for his images of exotic male dancers. His work is always technically superior and aesthetically beautiful. Whether it be the male dancers giving us the cowboy look at Flaming Saddles in West Hollywood, CA or the boys from the latest evolution of Stripper Circus, we look forward to each image captured by Jason. Males In Motion recognizes Jason King as one of the best photographers of exotic male dancers. And although he isn't limited to exotic male dancers as image content, we are grateful for his providing a glimpse of venues that we aren't able to visit often. We've designated Jason King as digital royalty in a blog we wrote in 2015 featuring his work. Click here and you'll understand why he was added to our blog of fame. We recently saw a pic of Jason on his Instagram account. We've decided from that pic, he needs to consider spending a little more time in front of the camera. We'll just say "shower pic" and leave it right there.

Favorite Producer/Host-ess ~ Hellin Bedd
Columbus, Ohio

   On our Fall road trip to Columbus, OH we were able to catch Hellin Bedd in action at both Axis Nightclub and Boscoe's. The shows were fun, humorous and featured a combination of pretty boys and sexy men! All were brought together through the talents of Hellin Bedd for the entertainment pleasure of customers and fans. During any given month, you will find Hellin Bedd at many different locations in the Columbus, Ohio area, showcasing some of the hottest male dancers from Ohio and surrounding states. We know the hard work that goes behind putting together weekly (or nightly) shows. Males In Motion recognizes Hellin Bedd (Brett Richards) as one of the best producers of exotic male dancer entertainment as well as one hell of a host-ess! Click here and read our review of Hellin's show at Axis Nightclub.

Favorite Club ~ The Corner Pocket
New Orleans, Louisiana

Photo Source: The Corner Pocket Facebook
   When a club is located in New Orleans, there is a lot to live up to when it comes to partying. The Corner Pocket has been able to hold it's own in the Big Easy for 34 years. Very few clubs or bars last even 1/5th that long. Males In Motion recognizes The Corner Pocket as one of the best clubs that features exotic male dancers, or in this case, the boys on the bar! And the boys are dancing on the bar seven nights a week. On Fridays, Lisa Beaumann hosts the new "MEAT" amateur strip off which allows newbies and the Famous Corner Pocket Boys to compete for a cash prize of $100. The boys dance until dawn on Saturdays in the All Boy Revue. Zingo is played on Sunday nights followed by Barry Bareass and the Dancer Of The Week contest. Click here and read the Males In Motion review of The Corner Pocket from a previous visit.

Favorite All-Nude Club ~ Swinging Richards
New Orleans, Louisiana
   I have been to Swinging Richards many times over the past few years. There has never been a disappointing visit. The dancers are always hot with amazing bodies, good looks, and 'blessed' endowments. Males In Motion recognizes Swinging Richards as one of the best all-nude male strip clubs. I chose to celebrate my birthday this past May at Swinging Richards because I knew it would be a birthday to remember. And I was right. Click here and read about my birthday celebration at Swinging Richards.

Favorite Male Dancer ~ Hamma
Dick's Cabaret ~ Phoenix, AZ

Photo Source: Dick's Cabaret Facebook
   At the end of a 10 day road trip, I found myself in Phoenix, AZ stopping in at Dick's Cabaret. I had never been to the club but had wanted to for several years. It was a slower night at the beginning of the week. Some might think that a slow night is not a preferred night, but for me, it turned out to be the best night. I enjoyed what I described as possibly the best lap dance I have ever had. This was due to three main reasons. First, Hamma, the male dancer, knew what he was doing. Second, he has one of those wiry muscular bodies that I definitely like. And third, .... Well, you'll have to go to Dick's Cabaret in Phoenix, AZ and discover that one for yourself. Males In Motion recognizes Hamma from Dick's Cabaret as one of the best exotic male dancers. I'm planning now to return in 2017 and I hope he's still dancing at Dick's Cabaret. Click here and read my review and more about my experience with Hamma.

   Thank you for joining me on this ride during 2016. I wish you a very happy new year and hope 2017 is a banner year for you. Until next year, don't forget to tip the boyz!!!
