If you're looking for naked women, Las Vegas is a pretty good place to be. There's a swarm of strip clubs in town with hundreds of talented performers ready to take your money. We talked to Ca$hmere -- a dancer from a few different clubs, including Crazy Horse III -- who has a dollar sign in her name because she knows a few things about (a) keeping customers happy, and (b) making money. She offered a little advice on the mistakes guys should avoid making while visiting one of Sin City's finer establishments.
An easy way to keep a dancer away from you is being smelly, gross, mean, or just plain strange.
"When the guys are socially awkward, that makes it kind of tough," says Ca$hmere. "If they are making weird noises or grunting -- for the most part, we don't want people to treat us in that awkward way."
Also, inappropriate groping can quickly turn into a huge problem.
"The worst case was definitely a bachelor party," recalls Ca$hmere about a group that came in a few months ago. "It was their first night in town so obviously, they had pre-gamed pretty hard. The bachelor was just really aggressive.
"If the touching is inappropriate, security will step in immediately."
Most guys, though, are cool about following the rules and don't misbehave. Ca$hmere notes, "It doesn't happen as frequently as you might think."
Bringing wives, girlfriends... or co-workers
No matter how cool your girlfriend or wife may be, don't assume she'll be fine with joining you at a strip club. Most don't want to see their man with another woman, even if it's just for a three-minute lap dance. And don’t even think about bringing a female co-worker or "just a friend” -- that, too, may also be a bad idea. Plus it's just weird.
"Sometimes guys bring in female friends that are either uncomfortable or judgmental and that brings down the morale of the group.” Ca$hmere tells us.
Of course, let’s not assume all women hate strip clubs. Many actually have a good time and enjoy the attention of the dancers just as much as the men do. Ca$hmere recalls a combined bachelor and bachelorette party that came in recently without any problems:
"They had an area towards the back with a ton of space and had quite a few girls rotating through the entire night just to accommodate all the people in the party. They had a really awesome time."
