Acting like the "Anti-Strip Club Guy"
Guys who come in a big group usually contain that one guy who’s just not into the experience, Thick says. If that’s you, there’s no need to take it out on the entertainers, who are literally just trying to make sure everyone has fun. "So many times, a group comes in, and there’s that one miserable ‘anti-strip club’ guy, who will be a complete jerk to any girl who attempts to talk to him," Thick says. "There is never any reason to be rude when we initially approach you. We want to talk and spend time with customers, to help make sure everyone is having a good time. When you try to say ‘Hi’ to someone and they immediately throw a hand in your face, interrupt you mid-introduction, or literally tell you to go away before you have the chance to finish your sentence, it's infuriating."
Forgetting that consent exists in clubs, too
Most men would never just grab on girl on the street, but once they get into a strip club, way too many forget that consent still exists. "Don't assume you can put your hand around my shoulder or waist. Don't assume you can touch me in any way without asking me," Thick says. "We are fantasy for hire, but if your fantasy is being demeaning, rude, and vulgar, and expecting me to play along, I'm gonna need to see some serious cash first. Don't be rapey. I can't believe I even have to say that, but consent is sexy."
