A really, really stupid question (sorry, I could not find it in previous posts, though I imagine it was already asked): How does a guy tip a dancer on stage if he is sitting far away from the stage? Does he keep on running back and forth? Doesn’t his table get taken by another customer when he is tipping?

Just leave a drink and some keys or something siting on the table. If you are good to your waitress and tip her properly she might watch your table for you as well. Or you could just sit at the stage.

Wait until the dancer is not performing for a guy at the tip rail. You leave your table, taking your drink in your hand. Make eye contact with the dancer so she knows the tip came from you. Put it on the stage. Smile, and return to your seat. Likely the dancer will now do a little dance for you.

If someone has taken the table, just say, "Hey this is my table. I just left for a minute to put a tip on the stage." But since doing the above takes only a few seconds, it is not likely that his will happen.

There are differing means on how to hand the money over depending on the laws where you live. In some cases, you can hand it directly to the dancer, in others you have to lay it on the stage or rail. Whether you're seated at the stage, a nearby table, or a faraway table doesn't really matter. With the latter, you just have further to walk. If you're in an unfamiliar club, just watch what the locals do and proceed accordingly.

As for your table being taken, highly unlikely, but I've had it done to me and I couldn't have been out of that seat for more than 20 seconds. I left shortly afterwards. Their loss.

Yes, keep running back and forth. Put a napkin over your drink, it's the universal strip club sign that says "this seat is taken".

Take your cash, make the most badass paper airplane you can out of it, take aim, reach back, launch it towards the dancer's garter, and hope for the best.

If I didn't normally just walk over to the stage in the circumstance you gave, then I'd definitely go the paper airplane route. Or not. It's worth a shot.

The wingman watches the table for me, as I do for him.

You can also tip the waitress to do so. If you are a good tipper, the waitress will not want to risk a random fucko in her section.

The only time I've ever seen it encouraged is when a feature entertainer was holding a wine glass between her breasts while the guys were trying throw the dollar bill in the glass.

I have actually seen asshats crumble their dollar bills into tiny balls and fling them uncerimoniously at the poor dancer hanging upside down on a pole.

But yeah, the best answer is what Richard said. Do the napkin thing. Everyone seems to respect that. I usually ask for a couple extra napkins just so I'm not transferring table sludge to my glass. Put a li'l hole in your napkin, and pop the straw thru if you're in a breezy area. :) That's my tips.

Never in a MILLION years would I leave my keys unattended in a strip club!

There is one club in philly, where the dancer lies on stage and spreads her legs. You are encouraged to ball up a tip and toss it at the magic spot, if you know what I mean. If you hit it, after the stage set, she comes over and gives you a kiss on the cheek. I found the whole thing very surreal, especially when I didn't understand the process and thought my one friend was REALLY popular with the ladies. Turns out, he just had good aim.

Lately, at least at certain times of the day, the number of tables generally exceeds the number of customers so losing your seat isn't much of an issue, but i remember the days when it might have been a problem.

I'm primarily a daytime customer and losing my seat is generally not a problem. I can go to the stage, sit for two songs, come back to the seating area and my table will still be there. I don't leave anything at the table other than my drink. If my fav has a drink she generally takes it with her to the stage out of habit as she knows I am going up to tip her.
Crowded night times are a different story. I've lost my table quit a few times even just getting up to go the men's room but it's not something I think about too much. I'll find someplace else to sit.

Well Gen, as I have often said, we go to clubs for different reasons. I'm looking to spend copious amounts of time with a particular dancer in conversation followed by multiple dances. Proximity to the stage or anything else for that matter is not important to me. Even when traveling I look for the most out of the way seat I can find at the bar to survey the activity.

If it's any comfort I won't always sit JUST ANYWHERE. I have even been known to leave and go someplace else when I can't find a good spot.

Last time I was in an actual strip club (mid-May), I do remember losing my seat. It was a Saturday night, a bit rainy out, so I marked it with my light jacket.

Of course, Miss Lap Dance marathon finds me and we head up to the couches..ooh..for a hour and a half.

And yeah, the club did fill up while we were up there. When I got back to my table, someone had taken it. After 23 dances, I really just needed my jacket and the guy politely handed it to me. I was too giddy to possibly be upset.

Ahh, nights like those are rare anymore.

My drink goes with me wherever I go, even to the men's room. I'd rather lose my table than let someone have access to my drink. Guess I just have trust issues.

Yet another moment of clarity.

Tonight I went on my second trip to a SC (same club as 2 weeks ago, but all dancers were different). I started tipping dancers on the stage. I took your advise, I ran back and forth with tips. It worked!

I tipped a dancer just because she did a great job. Generally $5. I was really surprised how little other guys tipped. Out of 20 guys, maybe a dollar or two. I dunno … maybe its because it was Monday night.

It worked well. It drove the dancers to my table. But unfortunately, when the food came, I was stupid enough to keep tipping. Every time I tipped, each tipped dancer made a beeline for my table, but seeing me in middle of my dinner she turned with something like “I’ll come back when you are finished.” None ever did come back, though I got dances from others who did not tip.

I guess there is no point of tipping if you are no in a position to accept any LDs.

UtahMike

Next time, eat before you go to the club. Or, ask the dancer if you can buy her dinner.

In clubs where food is served, its generally a faux pas for a dancer to hustle a customer while he's eating. Precisely why in 13+ years of going to SC's, I can count the number of times I've eaten at one on one finger.

Remove the food from this equation, and you'd have gotten your dances. In the hustle bustle environment of a SC, attention spans are pretty short.

Well, unless you just want to show appreciation for the show. Often when we tip a gal, and especially tip above the norm, we mean it as a calling card for bigger business to come, but it doesn't necessarily have to be.

How about tipping because dancing is how she makes a living and tipping contributes to her income. Seems like a good reason to me...

I have had some of the best meals of my life in strip clubs.

I think that, because they are a strip club kitchen, they tend to overcompensate. It could be that or the guilt over what the club will charge to eat, regardless. Either way, I rarely regret ordering food in a club when I am hungry.

My club has good food and i'm there for lunch usually. I'll tip while i'm eating, but it never has anything to do with getting a dance. It's just an impulse. Today I tipped a girl I've gotten the odd dance from. She had an adorable outfit on so I went up to the stage and told her so. I also said I'd like her to be my sex-slave, to which she laughed uproariously (sp?) while I slipped the five into her skirt waistband.

I understand what you are saying. Getting close to a customer who has a bad breath from eating a hearty meal, greasy lips, or sticky hands would be pretty disgusting to a dancer. :yuck: That’s why I wash up, and use mouthwash after dinner, before accepting any LDs.

Perhaps I am an atypical customer. I work the whole day, from 9 am usually till 9 or 10 pm. Sometime on the way home I stop for a bite to eat. And now, sometimes, I stop by a SC, get food and get a couple of lap dances. I get my evening entertainment and a meal at the same time. :thumbsup:

I would not go to a strip club if it did not serve food. Call me weird, but I just don’t time to hang around clubs. Get in, get a drink, order a steak or lamb, get a couple of LDs before the food comes, eat, wash up, get a couple of LDs instead of a dessert, and get out. I gotta get to bed by a reasonable hour, or I am a wreck the next day. I am planning on stopping by a SC every two weeks or so, and 60 to 90 minutes is not going to kill me.

As a matter of fact, the food is so good at this particular SC, the prices are so reasonable (unlike drinks), that I would go there even if there would be devoid of girls. Where else can you find New York Strip or Crab Wellington served on fine china at 11:00 pm?


Yes, now that I am over 40, food is more important then it was when I was 20. Never thought I say that. :'(

Yes, I did tip because I appreciate the dancer, regardless whether I wanted her to join me. But I do not want to appear that I am leading her on.

As far as the "leading on" part...

The fact is that the dancer is their for primarily one reason: To sell dances. Tipping her at the stage is a "lead" and most good sales people won't ignore a good lead. While it is true that most dancers will approach a guy that tipped her at the stage it doesn't obligate you to buy a dance. Of course she is going to try and sell you on the idea but they also understand that every dollar at the stage does not lead to a sale. Just be up front when they come over. Don't waste their time and don't lead them on. Ultimately they will appreciate the tip even if it doesn't lead to dances.

I have mixed feeling on food in strip clubs and it really depends on the club.

I have been in many places where I wouldn't even eat the free buffet and it is usually for exactly the reason that Jenny said. Pussy and meat balls just don't seem like they belong in the same room...

On the other hand, my ATF currently works in a club that has always been known for serving decent food. When I visit for an afternoon we end up having lunch and, though the place is in no danger of winning any culinary awards, it's not bad.

Hmmm...good point. The only nude club that serves food that I recall eating at had very clear, well defined physical separations between the nude area and the eating area. I suppose some people could transmit back and forth but I know *I* didn't and I gotta have faith that the cook/waitstaff didn't either.

On the whole, I eat in topless clubs. `Course, I mostly go to topless clubs. In all honesty, that's my preference.

Jenny, in my neck of the woods, there are essentially two types of SCs:
(1) topless, which serve food and drinks; and
(2) nude, which serve neither.

Thus, vaginas and food are not floating in the same club.
