I've only ever been to a strip club once--okay, three times. Three times too many. The things I witnessed I still can't bleach from my memory.

So I've always had respect for all strip club employees because the "people" who frequent these hotspots can be crazy and obscene.

Seriously, I'd have to have a drink at all times. And I always wondered about the music masters. How do you DJ in a strip club?

You gotta control the dancer's music and then manage the mood. It's all too much.

Redditor u/Familiar_Sherbert_70 wanted to know what life is like in the booty-shaking room by asking:

Strip club DJs, what do you have to tell us?

I will say, the one thing I saw that shocked me when I visited a club or two, was how lovely the breakfast buffet was. For real, if you hit these places up around 4:30/5 a.m, you can get some good eggs.

Chow Time

Giphy

"So when I was in college one of my roommates was a cook at the strip club, and he used to have us come in on afternoon Tuesdays/Wednesdays so we could eat for free. The bouncers were cool with it as long as we didn't cause a scene. That food was on point always, probably ate more fried chicken in a strip club than I have anywhere else."

Look Away

"I dated a stripper many years ago, only saw her perform a couple of times. One evening as she's about to start she stopped suddenly, walked up to me and said "could you do me a favor and make sure my brother and his mates aren't watching please?" Sure enough her brother and three of his friends were sitting at a table, has to ask security to escort them outside while she performed and let them back in afterward. Her brother was OK with it but his friends were pissed."

Pony Up

"Former strip club DJ here.

  1. Almost always if you buy a stripper a drink, she asks for vodka and soda and the bartender pours from a special vodka bottle that's just water, and then the dancer and/or bartender pockets the money.
  2. I never really wanna hear "Pony" by Ginuwine ever again.
  3. Sometimes the best nachos in the city are there." - fugaziozbourne

Yeah, this all sounds like an unwanted reality show already. It's like people lose their minds and decency when they're in the shadows. You're still in public, act like it.

Ten Percent

"I was a DJ for over 3 years. Made more money from tip-outs from the girls than I made from the club. Tip out was 10% of what the girls made. Most girls were honest. Some weeks I made more money than I make now. My girls were awesome, at least most of the time. It was an awesome time in life and I do mean awesome. Glad to be where I'm at in life now though."

Nudger...

"Some girls work as waitresses and shooter girls because they want to make the money but they don't want to take off their clothes so management makes them watch the dancers count their money at the end of the night to help nudge them along to the dark side."

The Boss

"My old boss was a strip club DJ in college. He said the number of dancers who hit on him so he would give them preferential treatment (shorter songs for lapdances, hype the audience for them, make their rival dancers bomb) ultimately lead him to quit."

Sex is fun. Sex is healthy. Sex should be enjoyed and always consensual. But often, sex can be dangerous, especially when you're trying out new things, like a new location.

Who hasn't thought about upping the adrenaline ante when it comes to sexytime? We've all been there. But some ideas really should just stay ideas.

Why break a hip or an arm just to make things a little more saucy? Just try a different room in the house, or the backyard, but bring bug spray.

And some areas in public are safety hazards for a reason.

Redditor u/playfulinvestment01 wanted to know about all the places we need to avoid when it's sexytime, by asking:

What is the worst place you had sex?

Animated movies meant for children have been known to sneak in a few dirty jokes here and there. After all, the parents have to sit through the movies with the kids too.

These "Easter eggs" can be found in virtually every movie meant for kids. It may go over our heads when we watch at age 10, but years later when we re-watch to enjoy a bit of nostalgia, we realize just how raunchy the creators were.

It's not just old movies from the 90s or early 2000s, some movies as recent as Frozen 2 have some moments of adult centered levity.
