As a man with a soft spot for the fairer sex, I can honestly say I've never been to an all-male strip club and have only a handful of experiences at clubs with female dancers.
I've heard lots of stories about male strip clubs, though -- tales ranging from nun-like innocence to out-and-out debauchery. As such, I was a bit curious to discover what these places are really like. So I reached out to Scott Layne Wiseman, owner, founder, and CEO of The Hollywood Men. His strip club was the inspiration for Magic Mike, a movie he calls a "game-changer" for the profession.
Benefits of Magic Mike's popularity aside -- "We have been sold out every night since the release" -- Wiseman says the film’s portrayal of male strippers and their female customers was a bit off the mark. So we tracked down 10 exotic dancers working at various venues across the country and asked them to share their most outrageous stories of the industry.
