The popular perception of strip clubs tends towards the notion that these venues are “Gentleman’s Clubs”, geared exclusively toward fostering misogynist attitudes to women, and the devaluing of the female body.
But are these opinions or views outdated? After all, as the habit of hen-nights hiring male strippers will attest, striptease is not only for men.
In many ways, this article plays the devil’s advocate, but then, here are 10 good reasons why women need to visit a strip club, at least once!
Watching strippers dance can teach you to love and appreciate your body and perhaps help you realize that you are attractive in other people’s eyes.
You won’t be the only one.
Being in that environment is highly likely to turn him on, but at the end of the night, it’s you he’s going to go home with, because you’re the one he loves. Accepting and understanding that could be exciting and exhilarating for both of you.
It could even just be fun to compare which of the girls you and him find attractive, or stimulate some healthy debate about what your relationship means to both of you.
And don’t forget that the girls who work there are more than dancers, too.
There are, of course so many counter-arguments to all of these reasons. But it doesn’t mean that the reasons aren’t there.
Sometimes it’s best to recognise that it is “better you know the devil” than to dismiss out of hand something that's difficult to understand without trying. After all, it could be fun, exciting, and as research has shown, women tend to see other women’s bodies as more attractive than naked men. If you doubt this, visit a strip club and find out for yourself!
