Default Strip Clubs????

I am curious about strip clubs...... no not that way.

Preface: I have been to strip clubs.

I know the idea of strip clubs is great. It is every man's fantasy, right?

My question is, how many of you can go to a strip club and enjoy yourself. I cannot suspend my disbelief and the sight nearly brought me to tears. I know the strippers are there by choice, and are making more money than I am (I have known a couple strippers personally), but I just can't help feeling terribly sad and disappointed by the scene.

I know many will think that is lame, but I feel like to enjoy the time at a strip club, one has to treat the women as animals and nothing more. I am just not capable and so they are a horrible experience for me. Great to dream about crushingly horrible in practice.

Call me lame but vote honestly! Please don't use this as a place to debate the existence or morality of strip clubs. I purely want to know if I am in the minority on this....

Honestly never been to one. Seems pretty pricey for getting all frustrated. Also I tend to think I would have the same reaction.

I haven't been in probably five years, and doubt I will go again until another close friend gets married. Last time I was there, it was fun, but also kinda... sad. It depends on the club, the place that's semi-local is really depressing. I don't mind women taking advantage of my hormones to take my money, but when you know some of them are they because they kinda HAVE to be (drug addiction or whatever), that kinda takes away some of the joy.

the_Wife is OK with my having gone, and wouldn't object if I went again, so that's not really the issue. There is an aspect of objectification that's present, but then again, I loves me some pornography, so I guess I'm being somewhat morally inconsistent.

I can't deny that my sentiments have changed a bit since having the_Bean.

So, I've certainly enjoyed myself at clubs in the past, but don't feel any real inclination to go back anytime soon.

I've been to a few in the past, but I really think its a complete waste of money. Giving a bunch of money to a chick just to shake her naked ass in my face seems pretty pointless. I could have a lot more fun at a dive bar for a fraction of the money.

Never done much for me...well, long term.
The idea of going to Uber-Frustrated Land without a Fast Pass just to blow every dollar in my wallet on Tiffany's Panty Fund ain't my idea of fun. If I want to be frustrated, I can stay home for that!
Hey, Ima loves yaboes but can see those plenty of places without the horrific vacuuming of my wallet!

Having a little girl really takes the shine off that one. Used to go on bachelor parties and when totally slashed, but haven't been to one in years. don't expect to go again until the next bachelor party.

I don't like them. I've only been once with the guys, but it made me feel like a bad person just being in there. Secondly, being a real cheap MF'er, I didn't like having to pay to get in, then feeling obligated to throw money at these girls. What really did it for me was that these girls were all around my age (young). I found it really sad and did not enjoy it.

Meh. The only times I have ever gone were for bachelor parties. I got taken to one for my own bachelor party- it was fun, except for being beaten with my own belt for the edification of my groomsmen. Bastids.

I've been to quite a few and one thing I can say for sure is that it's a lot more fun going to a strip club *with* SWMBO than it is going with a bunch of my buddies. The dancers see you as 'safe' if you have your SWMBO with you and you both get a lot more attention. Not to mention the bonus of watching her get a couple of lap dances once she has a couple of drinks in her.

You've got yourself an angel right there.
