IT’S SHOW TIME!
What happens on the day of the show?
Your assigned stripper will be provided with all necessary information to contact you and will do so before or on arrival at the party location. Please be advised, changes to the dancer’s arrival time is highly discouraged, especially if your party is on a Saturday.
Will the entertainer be on time?
There are two factors that determine if the dancer will be time, time of the show and time window.
If your party is earlier in the day (around 4 – 6 p.m.) or very late (around 11 p.m. – 12 a.m.) the dancer will most likely be on time, as most of the requests for entertainers are between 7 – 10 p.m.
The second factor is time window. Time window is the earliest and the latest time the entertainer would be able to come. If for instance, the entertainer has been given a four-hour time window, then the dancer can work his or her schedule better with other shows and be on time. Nevertheless, any show should have 1 hour time window for arrival. Strippers are never on time and if no time window or small time window is given, we cannot guarantee that we can provide you with a stripper.
Should I pay the dancer before or after the party?
Strippers are always paid before they start their show. Reason being, in many cases security/police may come t0 stop the party or someone at the party does not want any strippers and wants the person out. In any of those cases, it is not the stripper’s fault and they need to be paid.
Do I have to reimburse the dancer for parking?
If you are arranging to have your party in a hotel or in an area that requires paid parking such as downtown Chicago, you need to reimburse the entertainer for any parking costs.
What costumes do the dancers have?
Male entertainers may have the following outfits: Policeman, Army, Cowboy, Fireman, Construction Worker, GQ, Businessman. Please note, those outfits vary between each stripper. Outfits that are not requested often, such as Harry Poter, are not available. Nevertheless, you can provide the stripper with his outfit before the show, if changing area is available, and the stripper can return the outfit once the show finishes.
Female entertainers have the following outfits: Lingerie, Playboy Bunny, Risque Girl, Police Woman and Cowgirl.
Do I need to supply anything, such as music, or do anything in order for the dancer to perform?
Outfit, music and props are supplied by the entertainer. Alcohol and whipped cream are not supplied by the dancer, but we suggest you make them available. Moreover, there needs to be at least one armless chair at the party, and any tables or big obstacles should be removed from the center of the room where the dancer would perform. Dogs, cats or any pets should be locked away from the room where the dancer will perform. Those under the age of 18 should also be in a separate area from where the dancer will perform.
What determines the exact time the dancers would stay?
The length of time each stripper stays is approximate; nevertheless, 30 minutes is the minimum time they are required to stay. The factors that influence the exact time are location of the party, time window, crowd size, tips and participation.
- The location of the party is very important, because in some cases the party is too far or their GPS does not recognize the address. If the party is too far and they have additional shows afterward, then they will only be able to stay for the required time. Obscure locations not recognizable on GPS may take longer to find, resulting in the minimum show time.
- Time window is the earliest and the latest time the entertainer would be able to come. If for instance, the entertainer has been given a time window of 7 p.m. – 11 p.m., then the dancer can work his or her schedule better with the other shows.
- Crowd size is another factor that determines the exact time of the show. If the crowd is small, five people for instance, then it doesn’t take the entertainer as long to work the crowd. Big parties require longer shows since everyone wants a “piece” of the hot dancer.
- One of the most important things that will encourage the dancer to stay longer is the amount of tips. The more money flying around the room, the more the entertainer would like to stay. For this reason, please do not forget some “fun” money!
- The last thing that will determine how long the stripper will stay is participation. Participation is important because everyone should be part of the show, if possible. The dancer wants to see that everyone is enjoying his or her company! If people are not enjoying the show, the music is lower or stopped so people are quite, and/or security/police comes, then the length of the show will be cut.
***Please be advised, the stripper’s time starts the moment they arrive at the location, even if they have not started performing. Strippers have multiple shows on weekends and being late for one means being late for many other.
Can the entertainer be a surprise?
Absolutely! This is usually the case. Please inform us of any special instructions you may have and we will have the stripper prepare before the show.
How much will the dancers take off?
Male Strippers- male dancers will go down to g-strings with the regular strip show. Completely exposed strip shows rates are listed in our Price section as “Exotic Stud.”
Female Dancers- female dancers will go completely exposed, unless informed not to. There is no additional fee for this service since it is included in every package we offer. However, the price is the same if you decide not to have the stripper
How interactive can the crowd be with the male or female dancers?
With Male Dancers- as long as the crowd is respectful with their actions, almost anything is allowed. Examples of actions that might be considered disrespectful by some dancers are scratching, biting, pinching or hard wiping. Video recording is absolutely prohibited. Picture taking by cameras, cell phones or any other devices may be approved with the permission of the dancer. If the stripper is being disrespected at the party, he may leave without a refund.
With Female Dancers- every female entertainer has her own personal rules that would be clearly expressed before each show. In general, female strippers allow to have their body touched during a show. Please be advised that this does not include touching of their genitals. Additional rules include no scratching, no biting, no pinching and no hard wiping. If any of those or additional rules are broken, the female dancers might give the people at the party a warning. Nevertheless, if the issue is severe or continues after the warning, the girl would leave without issuing a refund.
Should I tip the stripper?
It is recommended that each and every person at the show participates and throws some “fun” money around. One of the most important things that will make the dancer stay longer is the amount of tips. The more money flying around the room, the more the entertainer would like to stay. You can tip the stripper either during the show or at the end as a lump sum.
Some of the guests at our party are shy.
It’s perfectly normal and accepted. Just let one of our representatives know and we will recommend you the appropriate stripper. Most of the male entertainers are slightly more aggressive so it should always be communicated with the dancer before the show.
If the dancer I chose is not available for my party, will you notify me?
We always strive to provide the preferred or secondary preferred entertainers. If for some reason neither one of the preferred or secondary preferred entertainers are available, we can provide a replacement. If you do not wish to have a replacement, you may cancel the show at no cost and your money will be fully refunded. In certain situations, when the party time is out of our office hours, we may not be able to notify you if your stripper has cancelled the event. However, all strippers are trained to contact the replacement listed on the reservation.
