Most men go to a gentlemen’s club to have fun, get a little drunk, watch some beautiful nude ladies dance to some great music, and maybe get a lap dance for themselves or their mate. Some just go to catch up with old friends or entertain business associates. While the name gentlemen’s clubs itself implies that the patrons have to carry themselves in a certain way, there are certain things that a bloke might do that will get him evicted off his seat and right out of the club even if he came in with a bucket load of cash. Obviously, gentlemen’s club owners and performers would rather have you stay and enjoy yourself for as long as you want. However, some people either do not know any better, leave their manners at home, or need a refresher course. Contrary to popular belief gentlemen’s clubs aren’t bawdy, dens of iniquity, they are a place of work, and as much as you the customer wants the best service – respect works both ways.
Sure, the dancers appreciate the money and you should, by all means, toss those fat stacks of paper on stage. When a customer makes it rain on stage, it encourages the performers to dance harder and sexier. It prompts the DJ to crank the music up. You see this glorified in hip-hop music videos. It’s easy to carpet a stage with one-dollar notes, and with the economy being what it has been over the last couple of months, you should make sure that it is one you can afford to spend.
Whooping and hollering whilst splashing money on the floor might be the norm in most strip clubs, gentlemen’s clubs may have a higher standard. This for not mean you don’t show your appreciation with as much enthusiasm as you feel like but do try to reign the vulgarity in. You should also not be trying to tuck money down underwear especially when the club has a strict no-touching rule.
Things aren’t always what the rap music videos show. The dancers might give their all on the stage and pole but the real money is in the private lap dance sessions. Keep your stacks of cash for a lap dance if you want to have an out-of-this-world experience. Whilst a lot of clubs make most of their money in alcohol sales, do drink like a gentleman. No one likes a sloppy grabby customer. If you do forget to honor the rules of the club you will be evicted.
The rules of a gentlemen’s club might seem simple enough but you would be surprised at the shenanigans that some patrons get up to.
There are always news reports abort strip club patrons behaving badly so much so that they continue their douchebag behaviour outside the club. Fights have broken out and spilled into the street. People have been assaulted, stabbed, and left on the curb bloodied and unconscious. These are images that have made headlines in local newspapers, not exactly something to be proud of. This unruly behaviour has led to some of Australia’s iconic clubs being forced to close and popular streets being under increased police scrutiny. This has given the whole adult entertainment industry an unfair and unwarranted bad reputation. This makes life difficult for the hardworking employees and dancers who are just trying to make a living.
Every dancer appreciates a good showering of cash but does not spend money you cannot afford. That is why it is always advisable to change large bills into ones. A downpour does not guarantee you special privileges but it will get some attention. So if you are going to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars making it rain, make the most of it.
