Actually Fish, I have been thinking about it. Very tentative thoughts but thoughts none the less. Im starting to get a bit cynical about the whole strip club thing and I dont like feeling that way. I need to stop doing the mental calculations LOL

That's why I haven't emptied a clip or even bitch slapped the guy who introduced me to it yet. ;)

LMAO! We are truly birds of a feather FBR!!! ;D Some damn thread on this board prompted me to do a mental calculation. :o Always a mistake. I shit the proverbial brick and am still sore. ::) Cash for a Boxster in only 2 years of clubbing. :( Maybe it is time for another hobby. :P


I made the mistake of creating an 'entertainment expense' catagory in Quicken. I try to tell myself that most of it was for "books", "CD's", or "movies". But we all know the truth....

I thought a club in Houston was your second home. Why is a trip necessary? :P


No, Joy of Austin here in Austin (that was a bit redundant, no?) is my second home.

I usually hit a club 2 or 3 times a week. My preference is for the few clubs that offer $10 dances.----I don't need nude; you can usually have an equal amount of fun at a bikini club if you work at it (without any major, in-house, extras of course). My normal outlay is $60-80 per visit (dances and drinks). I get some good bang for the bucks and some outside has been realized.

i will say at first, an average trip.. 400 dollars, one or two times a week

now that I am a regular and I know what everyone has to offer, I rarely top 200 dollars.. not becuase I don't have the money, just that nothing peaks my interest that much...

there is one dancer I woudln't mind spending money on but she is never at work

actually have more fun tiping the stage drinking and smoking a cigar... if a dancer comes by and chats with me, depending if I want her there or not I might get a dance or two, or 5, but rarely do I top over 200 and I hav spent as little as 60

I've been going to strip clubs for about 23 years. I hate to think how much I've spent. $50,000? $100,000?

My expenditures have been very variable. I've had periods of several years without visiting a club. OTOH, when I was traveling for my job, I used to go a LOT -- sometimes every night of the week. The dancers must LOVE traveling businessmen! I still keep track of my expenditures in Quicken using category "Misc. Travel". LOL!

Currently, I go to a club about once a week. I take $300-350 in cash, and I won't go over that (and typically plan to leave as I approach the $300 mark). Getting out the plastic after more than a few drinks is a dangerous thing!

Im crusing along at about 25 large per year. Which would be stupid if I was just getting some grind in the LD area. But I do get a bit more than that which makes it slightly less stupid.

I usually bring anywhere from 300-600. I used to run a tab but those days are over. I am at the point where I don't even care about the dances, I just want to have fun and spend time with beautiful ladies and if I'm having fun I don't mind spending the whole 600. Sometimes one or more girls will just want to hang out and talk so I have no problem buying them drinks and passing out some 20's if we don't get around to the dances by closing time. It's cheaper and a hell of a lot more exciting than Disneyland. The way I look at it, the SC is no place to be a tightwad, and before I walk in the door I've paid every bill I have and deposited funds in 3 different accounts, so if I walk out the door happy but with an empty wallet I'm fine with that. I'd hate to be the guy who blows the rent money at the SC and has to explain to his wife and kids why they are getting evicted.

My answer to this topic from more than two years ago:


I set up a crude spreadsheet of all my trips. I had to estimate a bit on some of them, but it averaged out to $150 a visit! Gadzooks!

I have always figured more like $80-100.
Shit changes over time don't it? Now $150 is practically the bottom benchmark to a satisfactory evening. I'd put the average now in the $225 range, but I only visit maybe once every six weeks.

Although I dropped only $30 the other night (see related TR), and for some reason I was quite impressed with my frugality.
:O

I think back to when I started clubbing in the early 80's when I thought $80 or $100 was a lot - mostly singles and drinks. Once I discovered the private full contact lap dances my budget went up to at least double that on every trip. Next came the VIP room and I began to plan on spending $500 or more on particular visits. I'm at about ten to twelve grand a year for the last five or six years but how my money is spent has changed quite bit. It used to be ATF, favs and drinks in that order. Lately it's been more like OTC, ITC and escorts all at about a third of my spending each.

It varies so much from trip to trip. The lowest I've every spent and considered it a fun evening was around $40.00. The most I ever spent was around $1000. Believe me it was worth it. Now I average around $250 to $300 when I go, which is about every three to four months.

My experience is pretty much the mirror image of yours, yoda. My "hobby" started in the early 90s, just as lap dances were starting to become prevalent. Before I got my first lap, I really thought I was burning the candle at both ends if I spent more than $40/night in the club (figure $5 to get in, three rounds of drinks at $5/pop, and the rest on stage tips). Of course, these days depending on the club you're at $40 spent before you've sat down.

Then again, I used to go to clubs two or three times a week; these days I go to SCs less than 10 nights a year. But the average night is more like $400-500/night (higher covers, more expensive drinks, more expensive dances, and more of them). Still, that comes out to $5K/year, on average...and I'm not nearly as active as most.

Like doc, when I started a few years ago I was averaging about $150 a visit. Now my average is probably $275. I only go to the clubs once a month so its really not that bad. I haven't started keeping a spreadsheet or a quicken category for my spending. Guess that means I'm still a newbie.

Had a quicken category for 5+ years now! }:D
For the neighborhood visits- usually 100-200. For Mainland club visits, $600-1200. That was for clubs like Ricks in Seattle and Jaguars in El Paso, so there was some higher than normal ROI.;D

200 to 300

50 for drinks and waitress tipping and the rest on dances at $25 per.

I try to keep it under $1000. Probably 200-500 with ATF getting the lions share. How many ATF's can you have though? LOL

Technically, only one. All of the others would be former ATFs. Lots of guys refer to "favs" as ATF's but really, how can you have more than one current "All Time Favorite"?
I actually spent less money when I had an ATF. Spending about the same on her every visit and not really spending on anybody else. Sampling the buffet is a bit more costly-depending on how many Brazilians are working-but has its own rewards.

I guess I should restate it as...ATF...Per establishment...LOL. I like the newbie dancers...the ones who don't know the ropes and try to please you the most. before they are taught all the coniving habits of the "old-timers"

I think it's important to know the diference between jaded and "coniving" vs. experienced and appreciative. Some dancers do get bitter as they get older but most just grow more comfortable with the work and us. I don't go near any dancer that isn't in her late 20's to early 30's. I have nothing against younger gals but I've never been convinced that they are the ones who are trying the hardest to please the customer.

Uhh, according to the official definition, just one.

ATF (ALS, 10/95) - All Time Favorite stripper. You can only have 1
designated as such at any given time. Can be a current or retired
stripper.

That's kind of funny, because in my experience some of the younger dancers are amongst the most manipulative ones out there. Me thinks they learned to be that way towards men long before they ever became dancers. High school taught 'em well I guess.

I agree with Doc. ATF should be an exalted, exclusive title, not a title you bestow on the last dancer who gave you a boner.

My ATF is my Indy dancer from several years ago. She holds a title that even Miss D cannot supplant. She was pretty much an impossible act to follow. The drama eventually killed us but during that year or so...dayummmm.

Agreed. Though I have had three ATF's the reigning queen retired three years ago and will probably never be replaced. I have a lot of favs in a lot of clubs now and that works better for me as a way of curtailing emotional involvement beyond a certain level....at least that's what I keep telling myself....

I think it's a matter of semantics.

All Time Favorite - would indicate 1, and only 1.

All Time Favorites - would indicate one of many favorites, I see nothing wrong with that. Why can't you have All Time Favorites?

In the end does it really matter?
