Well, first of all, relax. Maybe in some back-alley strip club in a rough area, but not in Las Vegas. Obviously, you should always want to avoid getting kicked out. Following or breaking the rules is what determines if you have a good experience or a bad experience.
Strip Club Etiquette: The 11 Vegas Commandments | Strip Club Concierge
Going to a strip club is a complete sensory overload: between the flashing lights, the blaring music, and the thick scent of perfume -- plus, you know, the naked ladies -- it can be hard to get your bearings, let alone figure out how you should behave. Strip club rules, unlike most dancers, tend to be a little fuzzy. First step: change your sweatpants. Actually, some things vary widely, like tipping and touching. Check for posted rules of conduct, or ask the staff.
Strip clubs are like temples, except instead of religious iconography, they happen to be full of beautiful women and booze. And like a temple, there are certain guiding principles that one must respect, lest you're denied the earthly pleasures therein. That's why we tapped author and iconic Portland dancer Elle Stanger to descend the mountain -- er, pole -- and give us the 10 Strip Club Commandments. I am the stripper, thy entertainer, who brought you out of your house of boredom, and thou shall have no other distractions before me. Texting thy booty call can probably wait another three to seven minutes, so put your damn phone away.
A common misconception about strip clubs has been floating around for quite a while. A surprising number of guests seem to think that because the gorgeous dancers and flowing liquor are satiating some of their most basic and natural appetites, it gives them a license to act like a full-blown animal. Every self-respecting adult entertainment establishment has a set of rules. Some are just rude, some are flat-out skeevy and gross, and some are just… annoying. Study this list.
