I used to think strip clubs were strictly for guys and the nude women cajoling them out of their money -- an opinion derived mostly from watching a ton of MTV back in the day and also, well, let's be honest, they are meant to cater to guys.
But then, years later, I actually went to a strip club myself and found a totally different perspective. Now, I think every couple ought to visit strip clubs together. Here's why.
Strip clubs are excellent inhibition killers
My first trip to a strip club was for my cousin's birthday. When she told me the party was being held at Sue's, I naturally assumed it was just another club in the Bronx; but when I entered -- just in time for the club's infamous "shower show" -- I realized that wasn't the case.
My initial reaction was one of shock; but I quickly loosened up and even ended up chatting with several of the strippers. Oh, and I bought myself a lap dance. By the end of the night, I was making it rain with loose dollar bills while singing along to Drake.
They make for reliably memorable date nights
Another time, I went to a strip club with my boyfriend for his buddy's birthday party. It turned out to be a fun night with fun people, hot girls giving us twin lap dances, and learning a ton of new tricks to be tried in the bedroom afterward. By the end of the night, we were laughing from an exciting night and horny from the sexy ambience.
