8- All Male Strip Club / Lap Dancing

Us girls are in it for the fun of it and my experience at a friend's hen do was to go to an all male strip club and we had the time of our lives it was hilarious. Some of the dancers where similar to magic Mike (kind of :)) whilst others where not. The club we went to the strippers did not strip off completly. The reason I found it funny was how serious they all took themselves. This is not for everyone so check all the hens are okay with the idea first but my advice is to experience as much as you can in life, we only get one and it doesn't last long.
*Recomendations- Google your nearest all male strip club. If your not into full on bollocko then find somewhere where the dancers keep their pants on because the dancers are not shy and they get up close to you.
*On A Budget - it was £5 a dance twelve years ago which didn't break the bank.

This is one of my favourite things to do not only for a hen party but also on a night out. I just love the comedy, The dramatic feminism and the bitchiness. If I where born a man I'd probley be a drag queen.
*Recomendations - Again Liverpool has a lot to offer in the way of drag acts and gay bars / clubs as I am sure most cities have. Google nearest drag shows or acts you can hire close to you.
