Well antoher day to feel great about our new fight club, it's GREAT!! Last night was only the second time we were open and we increased our capacity, last time was our first time and we had alot of people and last night was more ! Thats a big increase to me ..if we do that every week, then by the end of this summer I anticipate a housefull of people in the club at one time to enjoy the beatings! I think this is the best fighting set up the Quad Cities has ever had. I've followed this same ring around town for over 10 years or so , bar to bar , club to club , basically its always been in a small bars, the exception was Stars n Stripes were the action was super duper, hell that was one of the greatest places I ever drank in the Quad Cities. Now the tide had turned and even though we are not a bar , we are a BYOB so its just as fun if not more because we have more fights - quicker, without having to feed the ring from the door and the keep the place dragging along until 2 am to make sure the bar made its money , our fights basically go from 9 - 9:30 until main event time at 12 midnight, every one can still make it to work and our placeis big enought that the fighters dont really have to breathe alot of smoke , so all in all this is the future of all fighting in the Quad Cities.

It's worth noting that the whole idea of a strip club and I have a rather love-hate relationships. I think that Mr. Tea has it right when he explains that there are really only four things to do at a strip club:
- Ogle the dancers- Drink- Ogle the dancers while they are very close to you (i.e., a lap dance)- Drink- Ogle the dancers while they are very close to you for a longer period of time (i.e., the champagne room)- Drink
Okay, so actually, there are six things to do, which really come down to just two things: Drink and ogle.
Infamous New York stripclub 'Scores' says a lawsuit stemming from the huge bill a former telecom exec racked up there has been resolved.
NEW YORK (CNN) - The lawsuit over a former communications executive's $241,000 tab racked up at Scores nightclub has been settled, an attorney for Scores said Wednesday.
The terms of the settlement involving Scores, American Express, Savvis Inc., and former Savvis chief executive Robert McCormick are confidential, said Donald David, who represented Scores in the settlement talks.
"All the parties involved -- except for Savvis -- have agreed to say they resolved the suit 'amicably,'" said David. "Savvis plans to send out a more extensive statement on their own."
McCormick, of Clayton, Mo., resigned from Savvis (Research) Communications Corp. after an investigation into the $241,000, which was charged to his corporate American Express card after an alleged wild night at the Manhattan strip club on Oct. 22, 2003.
Savvis and McCormick refused to pay. In court documents, McCormick said he spent up to $20,000 at Scores that night. American Express then sued Scores, Savvis and McCormick.
The settlement was reached in the past few weeks, David said.
American Express said only that all parties resolved their differences.

TULSA, Okla., Mar. 22, 2006
(AP) A Kansas man was arrested at a Tulsa strip club after police say his toddler son wandered from an unlocked car into the club over the weekend.Christopher Greg Killion, 31, was arrested Saturday on a complaint of "encouraging a minor child to be in need of supervision." He posted $500 bond and was released from the Tulsa Jail.The toddler told police that his father told him to stay in the car, and that if he left it, "monsters would eat him," reports indicate.A manager at the club had called police to report that about 30 minutes after Killion entered the club, a 3- to 4-year-old boy came inside looking for his father.Officers determined that the boy had been left alone in a car in the strip club's parking lot. The car was unlocked and parked about 20 feet from a four-lane street. It was raining and 45 degrees outside at the time, an officer noted in the police report.

But while everyone is preoccupied with Oz, they never notice the man behind the curtain or, in this case, standing in a shadowy corner of the club, surrounded by computers and video monitors and racks of CDs. They never get the third side of the story, the one told by the men whose job it is to prolong the fantasy--and inflate the bar sales while they're at it. These men (and, yeah, they're almost always men) are equal parts parent, party host and program director and, in many ways, they're the engine that makes this little red Corvette run. They are DJs.
The life of a strip club DJ is not the endless party people might expect. It's not illicit hand jobs and once-an-hour spins of Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me." Despite the constant presence of women in various states of undress, it's not a very sexy gig. After a few hours on the job, the women all begin to look alike. Plus, there's too much work to do, between running the lights and keeping track of the order of dancers and making sure the computer is running properly and, oh yeah, playing a new song every three minutes or so. As for drinking and drugs? Well, you try making it through a 7 p.m.-to-4 a.m. shift while maintaining a buzz.
"You're here to pump up the crowd, play the right music and deal with about 50, 60 girls a night," ~~~~ "That's a job."

A man is driving with his young son, when they pass a billboard for a Gentlemen's Club.
From the back seat, he hears words that he dreaded upon seeing the sign,
"Daddy, what's a Gentlemen's Club?"
Thinking for a second, he replies, "Well son, aside from the circus, it's the greatest show on Earth."
The son follows up with, "You mean they have elephants there?"
"Only on the day shift." he replies.

on the Amsterdam gentlemen's Club blogspot, but for this one
I'll have to make the exception.....
A United Airway's passenger jet was being served by an
obviously Gay flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone
into a good mood as he served them food and drinks.
As the plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the
aisle and announced to the passengers: "Captain Marvey has
asked me to announceThat he'll be landing the big scary plane
shortly, lovely people, so if you could just put up your trays, that
would be super."
On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed that a well-dressed
rather exotic looking woman hadn't moved a muscle.
"Perhaps you didn't hear me over those big brute engines." he
said, I asked you to raise your trazy-poo so the main man can
pitty-pat us on the ground."
She calmly turned her head and said, "In my country, I am called
a Princess. I take orders from no one."
To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat,
"Well sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I
" Tray-up bitch! "

At most clubs you walk around and ask the customers if they'd like a private dance (or lap dance depending on the club). Some clubs just have stage dancing. Often there is a private area that you can go for a dance. Be careful, though, the dim lights and the privacy tend to make the guys a little frisky. Not in a bad or scary way just in a way that may need to be corrected. The most important thing to do when you're dancing is to SMILE AND MAKE EYE CONTACT. Nothing turns a guy off faster then a dancer strolling bored around the stage while staring vacantly off into space. Try to make each guy you're dancing for think he's the ONLY guy you're dancing for. This is how the pros make the big bucks.
At many clubs a significant part of your nightly earnings comes from dances. Most of the time the customer will pay for you to sit and talk with them as well. Guys vary a lot but it's always important to be attentive. Nobody likes to feel like they're being ignored. Most guys are pretty nice and easy to talk to. Provided you're a good listener and act interested, it's no problem. Then you get the guys who aren't trying to be obnoxious- they just don't have the best social skills. They will sit and alternate between nagging you to go out with them and lying about how much money they have, how many places they've traveled, how important they are in their company, etc. Simpering and looks of wide-eyed wonder come in handy at this point. Some guys are an absolute pleasure to sit with: they buy dances, they visit on a regular basis, and best of all they're lots of fun to talk too. It's guys like this who really make it all worth while.
When dancing it's important to stay motivated, at most clubs you are an independent contractor. You won't get fired if you don't work hard and no one will say anything if you decide to hang out at the bar and talk all night. You need to treat it like a job- not a social experience. Decide on what time and how long you will have dinner for, the rest of the time work the floor as hard as you can. Make sure you always get at least 8 hours of sleep so you're not tired. You'll look and feel better. Set a clear goal, try to get 4 dances and hour, as you get better set higher goals for yourself. Never assume a passive approach and wait for them to call you over, stay moving and keep working. If it's hard and you just can't get motivated make a game of it, make bets with other girls on who can get the most dances. Promise yourself ice cream if you reach a certain mark, whatever you have to do to stay motivated and keep earning money.
Learning how to properly break the ice and get invited to sit with a customer takes time. Most girls tend to just walk around to every guy in the room and ask "Wanna dance?" and then when he says no walk off. This is the exact wrong approach. Every guy in that room has enough money for at least one dance- you just have to find the right words to get them to buy one. "Wanna dance?" can work in a very crowded room or if a guy is already interested but it will do absolutely nothing to convince a guy who was uninterested to change his mind. It's too easy to say no to. To start with, choose your targets, who is looking at you the most when you are on stage or dancing for other customers? Talk to the bartender and the floor hosts: who has an open tab or has been spending a lot of money? If a bartender or floor hosts gives you a good lead and you make money ALWAYS tip them at the end of the night- that way next time they will go to you first when they see a big spender. When you approach your prospective customer try and say anything but "Wanna dance?": would you like some company?, would you like if I joined you? If the room is slow and he seems reluctant put a very slight push on. If he says he's not interested ask if he would mind if you just sat down and rested your feet for a minute- you're "not used to these heels". Few men are going to say no to that, and the "not used to these heels" implies that you're a new dancer and invites conversation. If 10 minutes go by and he still doesn't buy a dance don't ask- just say "I'm sorry, I've got to get back to work- it's been nice talking to you okay?" This implies that you didn't consider sitting with him work, a slight bit of flattery that will probably get you a dance later. Think of this approach as "seeding"in that you may not get the dance then, but chances are you will later. After a half-hour of "wanna dance" from the other girls he's going to wish for your company again and probably be willing to pay for it. Or even the next time he comes in yours will be the familiar face. With this approach it's important you not spend too long with them- keep them hungry. Unless they're paying don't sit with them longer then 10 to 15 minutes and only that long if the room is very slow. If they're used to getting it for free it's going to be hard to get them to pay for it. You're friendly and available- they just have to be willing to pay for it.
Never ever, sit on your own or hang out at the bar talking to other dancers. At any given time you should be either sitting with a customer, moving to another customer or on stage. If you're just standing around they will assume you're not busy and it will be VERY hard to get a customer to pay for your time because "you're not doing anything anyway". Look busy, if they think other men want you then they will want you.
It's important you have respect for the money they give you, so much money changes hands that girls often forget what it represents. Let's say your customer earns $40,000 a year after taxes- probably about average income for a stripclub patron in NYC. That works out to around $20 an hour. If a customer sits with you and you make $100, that's 5 hours of his time. If a handyman came to your house and fixed thing for 5 hours you'd say "thank you" right? Always thank the customer and make sure he knows you mean it. Even if $100 doesn't seem like a lot of money to you to the average customer it is.One last thing, don't screw with guys' heads. It's not cool, you can make money without doing it. I see lots of girls who string guys along implying they'll go out with them if they just visit a few more times or laying on sob stories about their sick children or parents. Don't do it, there is never any reason for you to lie as a dancer. After a few repetitions it gets very fake and you just come off as a greedy gold digger. If you want customers to treat you with respect you should treat them with respect. If they are disrespectful just walk away, there is no reason for you to sink to their level. There are more then enough good men who will to pay you to sit, talk and laugh with them and when you dance they will treat you like a goddess. As customers they deserve your courtesy and if they don't respect you in return they don't deserve to have you spend time with them.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A striptease is a performance, usually a dance, in which the performer gradually removes his or her clothing for the purposes of sexually arousing the audience, usually performed in nightclubs. The "teasing" involves the slowness of undressing, while the audience is eager to see more nudity. Delay tactics include additional clothes under clothes being removed, putting clothes or hands in front of just undressed body parts, etc. Emphasis is on the act of undressing along with sexually suggestive movement, not on the state of being undressed: in some cases the performance is finished as soon as the undressing is finished. (Prior to the sexual revolution, striptease performance often ended with the performer wearing a g-string and pasties).
Along with physical attractiveness and appropriate clothing, the main asset and tool used by the exotic dancer in recent years is the stripper pole. Almost all exotic dancers are drawn to the profession by attractive salaries they can receive in the form of tips and commissions from lap/couch dances and champagne rooms.
A variation on striptease is private dancing, which often involves lap dancing or contact dancing. Here the performers, in addition to stripping for tips, also offer "private dances" which involve more attention for individual audience members. Types of private dances include table dancing (performer dances on or by customer's table) and couch dancing (customer sits on a couch).
For certain events, including bachelor / bachelorette parties, the stripper's job often involves holding games or contests with sexual themes. In addition, the main guest of the party can sometimes be eligible for 'special' couch dances involving sexual acts between two strippers.
The contact between a performer and a customer is regulated in ways that vary in response to local laws and club rules, ranging from "air dances" with minimal or no contact to "full-contact" lap dances which involve genital contact through clothing.

Gentlemen's club ~ From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A gentlemen's club is an upscale strip club in the United States that features performances by exotic dancers to high energy club tracks. These clubs tend to specialize in stage performances, with advanced lighting effects and specially designed stages that allow for acrobatic pole tricks.
In the early 1980s, the go-go bar industry in the U.S. (adult entertainment bars featuring topless nudity) introduced a new form of club known as the "gentlemen's club". These clubs were formed in an attempt to bring legitimacy to an industry plagued with ill-repute.
Gentlemen's clubs differ from standard strip bars because of special features and amenities offered to their guests. Unlike their earlier counterparts, these clubs specialize in creating show-centric entertainment, meaning they focus on combining music, lighting, and choreographed dance numbers. In addition, they also provide champagne courts and staging areas for dressing, hair and makeup, etc.
Most Gentlemen's clubs are located in the city of Las Vegas, though they have branched out into several other major markets. Gentlemen's and strip clubs, a $5-billion dollar (U.S.) industry, generate approximately 22% of the gross revenue in adult entertainment.
Exotic dancers audition for positions at Gentlemen's clubs. Auditions are usually held on a particular night of the week, usually earlier in the week when there will be less of a disruption to the club. During an audition, prospective performers get info on dress codes, house or stage rental fees, DJ/House Mom fees, couch dances, etc.
