It's worth reading through to the punchline: "He notes sheepishly, however, that his fiancée "is thinking of Vegas for her [bachelorette party]."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

My best friend's wedding is this August. We're going to Vegas for 4 days the weekend before. So there's that.

...a shifting mindset among men who cite a "been there, done that" mentality, financial fatigue and a new distaste for raunchier activities that don't fit into their lives.


It's also worth noting that the guy in the article is 35. People in general are getting married much later in life and the wild oats were all sown years ago.
 
2012-06-14 12:32:38 PM
See, I did this for a friend of mine, just a few of us, quiet dinner, served by strippers and concluding with a Donkey Show.
 
2012-06-14 12:36:54 PM
A few of my friends have started to get engaged. I know I'll be going to a weekend bachelor party in AC in August, with a couple not-yet-planned ones over the following months.

I may get killed by my fellow thread-goers for this, but I will say that I don't think I'd want strippers at mine. Drinking, gambling, and a great meal? Yes, yes, and yes. But I've always found the whole stripper thing awkward.

I got married 13 years ago. I had my three best buds over for a LAN party, and we played Warcraft 2 all night. I'm such a party animal.
 
2012-06-14 12:46:25 PM
Assuming I ever find any woman willing to marry me, I'll probably just do what one of my good friends did before he got married last year: dinner at a steakhouse, a few hours at a classy strip club, then back to someone's house to play cards and bs away the rest of the evening and crash there. I don't feel the need to emulate 'The Hangover' or 'Very Bad Things' but factoring in strippers somewhat would still be required.

Part of it is probably that people are getting married later in life. But most bachelor parties I've been to have involved strippers, strip clubs, or escorts.

The tame parties suck, least of which is because the woman has convinced the guy she would absolutely not allow him to have strippers. F*CK THAT.
 
2012-06-14 12:53:42 PM
I just got back from Prague, so I'm getting a kick out of the idea that drunken debauchery is no longer in fashion for bachelor parties. Makes Vegas look tame.
 
2012-06-14 01:39:03 PM
Solution: Don't marry a woman unwilling to be one of the strippers at the party.

See how often the simple solution will elude us?
 
2012-06-14 01:47:25 PM
I've had friends with both kinds this year, one in Vegas, one in New Orleans... and one hiking and whatnot in a cabin in northern California... I somehow only made it to two of those.

Yep, I live in Amsterdam. If I ever didn't see a few stag/hen parties (as they're known in the UK) wandering through the streets drunk on a given weekend I'd wonder if Sharia law just got passed in the Netherlands or something.
 
2012-06-14 01:49:09 PM
As long as the quiet dinner involves any type of drug consumption, I'd say it still counts.
 
2012-06-14 01:50:42 PM
That's the groom's story, and he is sticking to it.
 
2012-06-14 01:52:04 PM
Mine consisted of a school bus, keg of Sam Adams and trips to nudie bars. But there was a quiet (ok, loud and obnoxious) dinner before we left. Does that count?

I'm pretty sure some cultures required that the first fark be done in front of a crowd. It could mark a return to ancient ways.

This is why your firends want to get you to a trip club even more.

If you get married in your early 20's, you are gonna miss out on a lot of stuff, so a big bachelor party makes sense. By the time you are in your 30's that sort of stuff is 'been there done that'...unless you are a dweeb who squandered his life.
 
2012-06-14 01:54:01 PM
I went to a bachelor party excursion a couple of months ago. It began with a few hours of wifebeater paintball (paintball wearing wifebeaters and drinking), followed by drinking at a really trashy stripclub for an hour or two (girls fell into one of two categories: chubby or methskinny), followed by camping in the mountains with a great deal of drinking. Breakfast of several pounds of campfire bacon and eggs. Good times.

FTA: "It was dorky, but so am I. I admit it," says Diamond, a 31-year-old West Village resident who made sure to filter out friends who wouldn't be happy with his G-rated menu of activities. His bachelor weekend kicked off with a civilized brunch at the organic, locally sourced East Village spot Back Forty, then moved on to a karaoke-thon and ended in an anticlimax, with Diamond and his buddies crashing on his couch to watch Ken Burns' documentary about the Civil War.



I going to guess that "Diamond" also squats to piss.

That's what I'm reading between the lines. When my buddy got married and we were all 24 we went to Tahoe for 4 days, I'm now 34 and the two bachelor parties I've been to in the last 3 years both included a day of golf and an a restaurant that required a jacket.

Some venues are more depressing than others. One of the ones I went to for mine was the Stadium Club in DC. Those chicks were like topless trapeze artists.

Yup.

This article is bullshiat by the way. Just someone trying to convince themselves that they are being 'modern and mature' and it's not just that thier lives have gotten lame.

Or that they have gotten all pussified by the feminization of the male in America.

/that being said, I am not a big fan of titty bars. There is just something deeply sad about the place.

I threw a bachelor party last weekend. We shot guns, ate steak, got wasted and went to the titty bar. It was the night of 4 Bs - bullets, beef, booze and boobs.
 
2012-06-14 01:55:55 PM
Mine was an NHL game with seats on the glass and a strip club after. I couldn't have asked for much improvement there.
 
2012-06-14 01:55:56 PM
Like someone else already mentioned, if your oats aren't already sown by the time you get married (in this day and age), you're getting married too young. That said, the trip upstate to go hiking sounds boring as hell. There's a happy medium.

I went to a couple strips clubs on a whim with some of the guys one night a few weeks ago. First time any of us had been in at least 10 years. Man, things have changed. It's now little more than some chick dancing on a distant stage raised up behind the bar, with dozens of other strippers prostitutes propositioning you non stop for private dances. It was more irritating and depressing than anything...
 
2012-06-14 01:56:02 PM
My brother was groomsman for a good friend of his who'd gone all born-again after college. (This is a guy who once broke up with a girlfriend because, as he said, "I didn't see myself marrying her, and I was having lustful thoughts about her, which means I was having lustful thoughts about another man's wife." Remember, ladies, you are always already somebody else's property!) His wedding and therefore bachelor party were in New Orleans (where the bride was from), which for most of us could be a pretty good time, even if you don't go super-sleazy with it.

The bachelor party consisted of: all of the groomsmen, plus groom and groom's dad, driving to the mouth of the Mississippi, saying a prayer, then getting back in the car and driving back to the hotel. On the way, the groom awkwardly mentioned that he'd been thinking about reading a book he'd found that had advice for Christian virgins on their wedding night, and asked if everyone else thought that would be a good idea, or if it was too sinful.

Nobody knew what to say, and they did the rest of the ride in increasingly-awkward silence. Good times.

"A bachelor party is a rite of passage for guys," protests Carone, the entertainment director at Maxim. "When else can a group of guy friends cut loose like this"


uh, all through high school, though college and into your mid twenties...
 
2012-06-14 01:56:57 PM
I was working at a strip club when I got married, so the idea of strippers seemed incredibly stupid. I went to a bachelor party last weekend that consisted of brats, burgers, frisbees, and lots and lots of beer and tequila. It was one of the more fun times I've had in months.
 
2012-06-14 01:57:20 PM
These stories come out every so often. Very anecdotal. For every whipped guy like this, there's still a ton of guys who do it up the old fashioned way.
 
2012-06-14 01:57:26 PM
last one i went to we did a racing day, followed by a fancy dinner and then we hit the bars.

strippers are kind of passe, because they're associated with bad cliched movies, low class, c section scars and the outdated boomer concepts of marriage. they're just not cool anymore.
 
2012-06-14 01:57:45 PM
I have actually noticed that more females I know go the stripper route than guys I know.
 
2012-06-14 01:58:09 PM
the only time I have ever tried cocaine was at a friend's Bachelor party. We were 22ish and I didn't think his marriage had a chance to go more than five years. Its almost been 15 years (jeez, I'm getting old) and they are still married, three kids.
/csb or not
 
2012-06-14 01:58:57 PM
My bachelor party is going to be soonish.

My "best man" is a woman who knows strippers personally.

I'm no fool.
 
2012-06-14 01:59:37 PM
My brothers bachelor party...8 guys in a small room watching Christian themed films, discussing the bible and drinking lemonade.

My bachelor party. I went to a strip club, had lap dances, drank shooters and stumbled to the bathroom. Next memory I had was of a guy pissing two inches from my head into the urinal...next memory, falling out of the back of a taxi and being robbed by my brother in law and his friends so they could get pizza money...next memory coming to in my friend house, lying on the hard wood floor and thinking I must have died...stumbling back to the apartment I shared with my bride to be..going to my wedding the next day and feeling like shiat. Good times.

Never, ever been that drunk since.

Ha, I have a bachelor party this Saturday. I guarantee there will be plenty of booze and debauchery.
And hopefully the, "I have no idea where I am and who this girl is."

I've been to a few of those. God damned farking boring is what they were.

Mine involved strippers. God bless them.
 
2012-06-14 02:00:32 PM
I got married 20-some years ago (why, yes, I am old, thank you)...my batchelor party was a weekend camping trip in the desert with a large assortment of booze, guns and off-road vehicles....all of which were used grossly and dangerously...and a good time was had by all.

fast forward to a couple years ago and went to one for a buddy that had the whole stripper thing and it was decidely less fun...don't get me wrong, I like a naked dancing girl as much as the next hetero guy, but yeah, the stripper thing just becomes kinda "meh"...I guess for me, just the fact that I know she's only there to get paid is a downer...that she's done those exact same movements for thousands of other drunk, horny guys just in the last year, to the point that you can almost hear her counting off the minutes til she's done, it's just kind of depressing to me...
 
2012-06-14 02:00:42 PM
I've been to some that involved international travel, trashed hotel rooms, and a boozy shiat show till the sun came up. No hookers though. Just pick up some drunk ass girls. I'll worry about hookers when I'm 50. I like strippers though. I dated one. It's all just a game/act selling your sole for cash job. Kind of like how I sit at a desk looking at a screen eight ours in a row; except you wear clear heels and the IRS thinks you make a lot less.
 
2012-06-14 02:00:57 PM
The last one I went to consisted of all-day paintball, followed by a good meal with friends and hanging out. No strippers, but I think it was way more fun. You want to see naked people, the internet kinda has that covered.

I don't understand this idea that "IF YOU DON'T HAVE STRIPPERS YOU'RE NOT A REAL MAN". That seems... silly.
 
2012-06-14 02:00:57 PM
I don't see the appeal of "My last night of freedom so I just have to see titties" either. If you felt that way, then why are you getting married?

I had a blast at my brother's bachelor party and we just went bar hopping a little.

2012-06-14 02:01:12 PM
I'm guessing this guy (the author) thinks everyone should also get totes wasted on New Years Eve and St Patty day and shiat too. I wonder what it must be like to be an automaton driven by societal expectations? What a child...oh, wait, he is interviewing a Maxim editor...wow, that explains a lot.
 
2012-06-14 02:01:16 PM
a guy will say this and try to make it a "just the guys hanging out having some beers and grill some food." Then about two hours into this, the rest of the guys agree that "we do this all the time, lets go do something fun"

THAT is when the bachelor party takes a turn for the worse.

read: more booze or booze you don't typically drink, fire, hookers/strippers, more fire, guns, injuries, loss of memory.... etc
 
2012-06-14 02:01:52 PM
On the other hand, my first bachelor party sucked balls. My friends took me to two comic book stores to look at Magic the Gathering cards. (I'm not into comics or Magic the Gathering). Then we went to my buddy's house to watch Wolf starring Jack Nicholson on VHS and eat frozen pizza. Our "stripper" was a deck of bikini playing cards one of my friends got at the comic shop.

To be fair, we were 17 and I was about to marry my knocked up 16-year-old girlfriend in a shotgun wedding.

My first wedding night was even more horrifying. We had to wait until after my girlfriend turned 16 to get married. Even then, we couldn't get married in Washington with her that young, even with parental consent. So, two weeks after she turned 16, on April Fool's Day, we loaded up in her parents' van and drove to Idaho. We were all dirt poor and her parents paid for the whole thing. To save money, I spent my wedding night in a cheap hotel with my new bride, who was 5 months pregnant, and my mother.

Guess how long that marriage lasted?

My friends forgot about me, and I had a hastily thrown together one the night before the wedding. The rest of the crew as they married went out to Tiger's games, or golfing, or laser tag. We played pool and drank and the bar closed at Midnight because we were the only ones in there.

My wife's was a bit more raunchy, as the matron of honor actually planned something.

My first wife made me promise that I wouldn't go to a strip club for my bachelor party. She made a huge deal out of it. It was important to her, so I made it clear to my best man that I just wanted to go out, have dinner, hit a few bars, and just have a good time. Well, he got me really drunk, and all of us ended up at this strip club. I made a big scene about it, how I wasn't going to break this promise to my future wife, that she trusted me, and that there was no way I was staying there, and blah blah blah. I really ruined the night and was so embarrassed that I ducked out the next morning before anyone came to.

Found out later that she hit a male strip club for her bachelorette party. I hate her for many, many reasons, but that's the first.
 
2012-06-14 02:04:07 PM
I'm planning one for a friend of mine..we're starting in Minneapolis and after 2 days, we're surprising him with a trip to Vegas. The latter part was his fiance's idea. She's a good woman.
 
2012-06-14 02:04:12 PM
My sister just got married. I don't know the details of her bachelorette party, but her fiancé's bachelor party was advertised as a "bache-LAN party". I got there after a few board games had already been played, one more was learned and played that lasted until 1am while my brother and I drank some booze I brought (the groom didn't drink booze) and kept an eye on the Devils-Rangers game. It was odd, but I have nothing other than TV to contrast it to, so [shrug].
 
2012-06-14 02:04:34 PM
At my bachelor party we did clay shooting, barbeque, and off-roading. My brother is doing the same, only him and his buddies are going drinking downtown afterwards. The whole stripper thing gets pretty played out by the time you are in your mid-20's.

I'm 26 and have never been to strip club, nor have I ever seen a stripper in person (at least, none who has ever identified herself as such). I certainly don't condemn what strippers do, I've just never felt like I had a need for their service. That is, the idea of paying for a boner doesn't appeal to me. If I ever get married, my bachelor party will likely fall into the "quiet dinner" category.

I see this more and more on Fark, like a badge of honor.

Just curious, are you attracted to naked women? Now I'm not calling you gay, doing that as an insult is messed up. I'm just wondering if guys are more and more asexual these days. Or is it just the internet.

Mine consisted of AC, 10 guys, at one point me wearing a stripper's vag as a hat, and many other things that either cannot be remembered or ever discussed.

/Final Toll
//136 Dead Soldiers between the van ride up, the suite and the ride home
///8 bottles of booze gone
////Hundreds spent on food, more booze, strippers and gambling
//3 lost cell phones
//Nearly 1 lost friend (the casino found him with a room key passed out in a random hall and put him in an open room for the night)

The whole tradition is pretty f*cking retarded. "We're getting married because we love each other more than we ever imagined possible... so let's go cheat on each other in a crazy blowout party!"

If never seeing another naked dude/chick again, other than your spouse, is that f*cking scary to you, DON'T GET MARRIED.

Eh, so if I ever get married I shouldn't celebrate like I do every weekend? Bummer.

... more about a quiet dinner out with a couple of close friends."

Know how I know you're gay?

For me, it's a couple pool games, several beers, too many cigarettes, and at least one lecherous pass at a woman that's too young for me.

Headache and queasy stomach the next day. Sorrowful laments.

I feel it's still pretty common. Bachelor parties aren't as distinguishable from bachelorette parties because women always wear dresses, sashes & tiaras like a princess, and have miniature dicks on everything.

Actually, come to think of it. It would be pretty boss to wear armor and crown like a prince and have a bunch of mini-vaginas being thrown around.

Do both, and bring plenty of dollars for the strippers.

I can tell you right now, I don't want strippers. I want to get drunk, skydive, paint ball, and go-cart. Hopefully all at once. I hope the UP is as lawless now as it was when I was a kid 10 years ago.

/never been to a strip club. Seems sad and gross.

animal900: Like someone else already mentioned, if your oats aren't already sown by the time you get married (in this day and age), you're getting married too young. That said, the trip upstate to go hiking sounds boring as hell. There's a happy medium.

I went to a couple strips clubs on a whim with some of the guys one night a few weeks ago. First time any of us had been in at least 10 years. Man, things have changed. It's now little more than some chick dancing on a distant stage raised up behind the bar, with dozens of other strippers prostitutes propositioning you non stop for private dances....

Last great one I went to was in Vegas. Both the groom and one of the groomsmen (who had a serious girlfriend) picked up two skanks and banged them in the same room. Afterwards the groom felt bad and told his bride to be.... and no one has had a good bachelor party since. lol

I guess I can see if you grew up near a ghetto one. I think a lot of guys on here think about it too much, it's just mindless fun. Alcohol and naked chicks waving their hoo-ha's in your face. It's fun just for that.
 
2012-06-14 02:14:50 PM
Weighing in on the whole stripper thing, I can't get aroused in those places. Doesn't matter how drunk I am, I can't convince myself that it's real so there's no chemistry, therefore no boner. Still a fun thing to do with a group of friends every once in a while, and I do enjoy the nude female form.

It's a different story when I go with my wife, who is 3/4 lesbian. (Not the same wife from the story above). My wife's name is fairly unusual. We had our first shared lapdance from a girl with the same name as my wife. THAT was fun.

I've never understood it either, nor do I understand the reaction of people who are proponents of this behavior. They seem to not only feel entitled to doing it, like it is some important right of passage, but they are simultaneously mystified and in some cases, dismissive or reactionary to people who don't want to do that for their bachelor party.

2012-06-14 02:16:32 PM
I didn't realize it until i read this article, but i have a bachelor party to plan.

I was asked to be the best man at my older brother's wedding next year. He's the very calm, quiet, orderly engineer type. His fiancee is a law student, the bookish labor law kind of lawyer (i can see why he likes her). I know he's got his little quirks and eccentricities but they aren't very, in the open. It's hard to get him to show his cards.

I however am the boisterous creative younger brother, i'm loud and happy, and happy with that. When i'm around my brother he puts his shields down, and gets a little more ridiculous. He lets go a little, and it's good to see i have that effect on him.

I feel it is my responsibility to make this experience as insanely awesome as possible.

fark boring, my Bro deserves better than boring. Thanks for inspiring me with your crappy idea article.

Plan for my day is as such:

1: Boardgames for a bit. Potentially induce round 1 of Bang: The Drinking Game (Whenever you're shot, take a shot. Whenever you heal with beer, drink a drink. Whenever you die, finish your drink. )
2: Dinner Someplace. No idea where yet.
3: Strip Club. Because I've never been, and I probably won't again after I'm married, so why the hell not.
4: Hotel Room for excessive drinking with Boardgames/Poker

Exciting! For me anyhow.

Can anyone give a first-hand primer on Strip club behaviors and etiquette for someone who has never been? I don't really know what to do, how to prepare, what is appropriate, etc etc etc.

I have no sexual hang-ups at all. For me the whole stripper thing is just too...I don't know...artificial? Maybe? There's just something off about the whole arrangement that overrides the sexual aspect for me and makes me "meh" towards it. I don't see it as a badge of honor, I'm not going to brag about it or anything. And if someone else likes strippers it doesn't bother me at all. I'm just talking about it because it happened to line up with the subject of this thread.

2012-06-14 02:18:22 PM
The last bachelor party I went to, the groom tried to puke out of the window of a moving car, and pretty much covered me in vomit (in the back seat.) A quiet dinner out sounds like a good idea.
 
2012-06-14 02:18:23 PM
Strip clubs are easy: First, pick a gentlemen's club, not a strip club - there's a difference. Try to go when it's not too crowded. Go in with a set amount of cash already in your wallet, and when it's gone, you leave. When you walk in, tip the host $20 and tell him you're just there for drinks and a few dances. Treat the place like a bar where there just happen to be gorgeous girls getting naked around you and on you. Refuse to go into any "party rooms" etc, because as soon as you do that, you're soaked for hundreds of dollars. Don't take it seriously -- don't hit on the girls thinking you're going to pick a girl up and take her home. Just relax and have a good time.

That is my guide for enjoying strippers.

From the attitudes i see amongst my cohort (30 and below) strip clubs are kind of looked down on. ugly/old/pregnant chicks is the cliche, the clientel are desperate, sad loners who need to pay to get teased and the strippers are just screwing you out of cash and laughing at you behind your back.

See now this is funny because it is not like that at all. It is a day of celebration for those getting married. It is fun and baudy and ya there is strippers and stuff on both sides but not a single one that I went to ever ended up with cheating on either the bride or groom part.

If you feel you have to have strippers, designate your drivers and go to a bar where no prostitution is tolerated AND LEAVE AFTER NO MORE THAN TWO HOURS.

Then go to a home or sports bar where you can actually do some serious bullsh*tting, card-playing, catching up, etc. Do not bring the strippers with you.

Do your whore-mongering on your own time. There's no need to force it on family and friends.

My brother's bachelor party back in 2001 consisted of a night out drinking, return to his house, hilarious blindfolded group lap dance by his best man, and Axis and Allies in the man cave until everyone passed out from exhaustion. We completed one game and started a second, but then it was lights out. Actually was pretty decent overall. They're still together and going strong.

1. Take lots of $20s and lots of $1s.
2. Don't get a dance from the first girl who asks. Take in the scene for a while.
3. Be polite.
4. It's ok to say "No thank you". Don't apologize about it.
5. Most importantly, keep your hands to yourself. They can touch you but you can't touch them.

The dancers want you to touch them as much as possible. And never buy an alcoholic drink, it's usually against the club's policy.

I just got back from Vegas for my bachelor party, so I'm really getting a kick...

Went down to Vegas with two friends, met a third friend who lives there and we went to various 'clean' attractions.

The 'quiet dinner' was the Heart Attack Grill, and the drinking took place at the video poker bar at the 4 Queens.

We would have driven to Area 51, but it's a 4-5 hour round trp...

You know. About two weeks ago my friend had a conventional booze/strippers bachelor party and the whole thing just wasn't terribly fun. It was just a bunch of sweaty, low tipping drunk guys and fake breasted per hour hired women. It just didn't really offer a whole lot, and I suspect the only thing sadder than the eyes of the strippers was the certain knowledge I had that I could never buy the type of company I actually wanted.
 
2012-06-14 02:24:26 PM
At a bachelor party in the late 90's I watched a married friend of mine go down on a nasty, methed out looking stripper from Mississippi while the stripper's bodyguard/DJ/brother (seriously, her brother) watched and gave a big toothless grin while operating the 80's ghetto blaster.

The friend proceeded to spend the next 5 minutes eating out this nasty chick in front of all of us (probably 25 people). All of the laughing and shouting we were doing stopped while we watched in disgust/disbelief at the entire situation. The party took place IN the stripper lickers house while his wife was out of town. Another friend took it upon himself to hide the stripper's business cards in random parts of the house for the dude's wife to find later on.

Strip clubs are weird, you get the young bachelor party crowds that are in there for a good time throwing their stank ass dollar bills all over the place. Then you get the creepy 45 year old dude who goes in and buys 1 drink, sits in the front and just stares for hours while nursing that same drink the whole time and never throws ANY money to the strippers.

1) Bring all the cash you plan to spend, and plan to spend a LOT. LEAVE YOUR CREDIT CARDS in the car.Pay as you go, no tabs.
2) Practice the willing suspension of disbelief that will allow you to believe that the girls really dig you.
3) No touching beyond what they are amenable to. Don't grab.
4) To get the best dancers at your table, tip decent at the stage and tell them to come by. Don't just wait in the corner.
5) Enjoy yourself. Try not to over think it.
6) DO NOT LEAVE with anyone you didn't come with, and don't leave anyone behind.

A) The Bachelor pays for nothing. That's the job of the groom's party.
 
2012-06-14 02:30:10 PM
The gambling and strippers thing has to be done at least once, whether you're male or female. After that, it's repetitive, boring, usually predictable.

Bachelor parties of note:
- in Providence I got a stripper thrown out of a strip club
- Got of a party bus and sat at a bus stop in front of a bar and gave a beer to a homeless guy and drank with him.
- At Foxwoods I won $1000 on a run at a $10 roulette table (I am The Cooler, so this is a big thing for me)
- Ran into an exgirlfriend (not at a strip club or bus stop) and she told me about her husband and kid and then immediately asked me if I'd do some X and have sex. (no)
- Same night as previous, party bus left without me and 3 others and stranded us in Providence. My wife picked us up at 3AM and brought pizza, water, and ibuprofren for the ride home (helps explain why I said no to the ex).

Felgraf: The last one I went to consisted of all-day paintball, followed by a good meal with friends and hanging out. No strippers, but I think it was way more fun. You want to see naked people, the internet kinda has that covered.

I don't understand this idea that "IF YOU DON'T HAVE STRIPPERS YOU'RE NOT A REAL MAN". That seems... silly.


Exactly. What does enjoying naked females have to do with being a real man? There's lots of other things you can enjoy. Take egg white omelets, for example.

You should go with some friends. It's like a car show, just checkin out that sweet Ferrari 458. And yes I'm comparing strippers to objects. Very nice objects.
I don't like strip clubs, but I like strip clubs. It's a conflicted opinion I'm sure many have.

I have a question for the pro-stripper brigade.

Don't you get uncomfortable looking at naked girls with your brothers, dad, cousins, her brothers, her male friends, etc?

My husband went to a strip club once in his late 20s. His dad took him and he felt very uncomfortable.

(I like the fun weekend away idea since you're more likely to lose that by having kids and getting busy with life, then losing the ability to see naked women. It's not the strip club is going anywhere.)

well, strip clubs are pretty much the opposite of the idea of the cool guy- old or new. can you see steve mcqueen all excited because he is getting a lap dance? john wayne? Clint Eastwood? i mean, *maybe* charles bronson, if he was planning on shooting a bunch of guys in the strip club. otherwise, no way. cool people don't go to strip clubs. that's been drilled into any under 30 consumer of pop culture.

Tat'dGreaser: Inaditch: JokerMattly: Can anyone give a first-hand primer on Strip club behaviors and etiquette for someone who has never been? I don't really know what to do, how to prepare, what is appropriate, etc etc etc.

1. Take lots of $20s and lots of $1s.
2. Don't get a dance from the first girl who asks. Take in the scene for a while.
3. Be polite.
4. It's ok to say "No thank you". Don't apologize about it.
5. Most importantly, keep your hands to yourself. They can touch you but you can't touch them.

That's about it. It's a good once in a blue moon fun.


Also, just in case it needs to be mentioned, drinks are usually double or more normal bar prices at a strip club. Like if you can get a beer for 5 bucks it's gonna be 10+ etc. I think I'm about a 1 beer, 1 lap dance, 1 hour kind of strip club visitor. It's fun once in a while but gets old pretty quick.

I don't understand the whole bachelor/bachelorette party thing. I mean, if you are going to so desparately miss partying like that with your buds/girls, because apparently in concept once you marry you aren't allowed to party anymore...then why get married? It seems like if you think marriage is going to suck that bad, well then why do it?

*shrug* marry someone you want to party WITH. Then do that. You'll both outgrow it eventually or not, either way, you should be good to go.

"Party because life as I know it is coming to an end" seems depressing and death-marchy to me.

kid_icarus: ...a shifting mindset among men who cite a "been there, done that" mentality, financial fatigue and a new distaste for raunchier activities that don't fit into their lives.


It's also worth noting that the guy in the article is 35. People in general are getting married much later in life and the wild oats were all sown years ago.


This makes the most sense. That and maybe the people with tons of oats just realize that they're not interested in getting married. It seems like marriage is less of an expectation now than it was in the past so perhaps they're still having the crazy parties, they're just not bachelor parties?

My bachelor party ended with my battered, bruised and stuffed into a trunk. It started with beers & tequilas at a bar. How it got from one to the other still eludes me. And there are no pictures.

If I were to fall for the whole marriage boondoggle again, I don't think I'd want strippers, but beers, buddies and maybe some golf/pool/paintball/laser tag or something.

Felgraf: The last one I went to consisted of all-day paintball, followed by a good meal with friends and hanging out. No strippers, but I think it was way more fun. You want to see naked people, the internet kinda has that covered.

I don't understand this idea that "IF YOU DON'T HAVE STRIPPERS YOU'RE NOT A REAL MAN". That seems... silly.

Exactly. What does enjoying naked females have to do with being a real man?

Clint Eastwood? i mean, *maybe* charles bronson, if he was planning on shooting a bunch of guys in the strip club. otherwise, no way. cool people don't go to strip clubs. that's been drilled into any under 30 consumer of pop culture.

Don't you get uncomfortable looking at naked girls with your brothers, dad, cousins, her brothers, her male friends, etc?

My husband went to a strip club once in his late 20s. His dad took him and he felt very uncomfortable.

(I like the fun weekend away idea since you're more likely to lose that by having kids and getting busy with life, then losing the ability to see naked women. It's not the strip club is going anywhere.)


I left a bachelor party early once as I was dating his sister. Felt that would be awkward, still had a fun day drinking though. I left at the bar that coyote ugly is based on.

2012-06-14 02:41:53 PM
I didn't have a bachelor party. I didn't want one. My buds thought I was nuts, but I had no desire to go out and get tore-up drunk/stoned and screw around with a bunch of strippers and hookers. Besides, I was having a morning wedding, so I would have had to call it something of an early meeting. I guess I remembered how my sister looked at her wedding after her bachelorette bash: like she was barely there and about to puke on her groom. I didn't want that and, as it turned out, I didn't need it. My fiancé's parents sponsored a party at their house that our friends wanted to throw. There was live music, plenty of booze/pot and a lot of our mutual friends. My buddies were invited. Two came and had a great time. The rest went trolling for hookers "in my honor." One got the crabs and passed them onto his wife. Whoops.

hasty ambush: FTA: "It was dorky, but so am I. I admit it," says Diamond, a 31-year-old West Village resident who made sure to filter out friends who wouldn't be happy with his G-rated menu of activities. His bachelor weekend kicked off with a civilized brunch at the organic, locally sourced East Village spot Back Forty, then moved on to a karaoke-thon and ended in an anticlimax, with Diamond and his buddies crashing on his couch to watch Ken Burns' documentary about the Civil War.



I going to guess that "Diamond" also squats to piss.


It sounds like me like these assholes are going out of their way to do things
that are entirely the antithesis of what a bachelor party should be like. What a bunch of farking losers. Why even bother having a "party" at all? The Civil War? Really? They couldn't have watched something a bit more fun & exciting, like Adventures in Babysitiing" or something? These guys sound like hipsters, but with money. It makes my blood boil!!!

That is a good plan. However one of my buddies does this all the time and bangs them on the reg. He doesn't blow money on it, he's just got the game down. It's an art form really, he'll be like "you want that girl, I'll get her over here, she'd sleep with you. " Skills.

Lame. One of our guys probably spent $1000 at the strip club. He was in the back room for over 2 hours. I don't think he spent a dime on the groom. Another cheapskate at least wasn't spending a lot on himself. The third cheapskate was also not spending on himself, and he drove the 3 hours home so I didn't have to, so he gets a pass.

FreakinB: A few of my friends have started to get engaged. I know I'll be going to a weekend bachelor party in AC in August, with a couple not-yet-planned ones over the following months.

I may get killed by my fellow thread-goers for this, but I will say that I don't think I'd want strippers at mine. Drinking, gambling, and a great meal? Yes, yes, and yes. But I've always found the whole stripper thing awkward.


I'm probably late to the party for this comment, but I don't particularly like going to strip clubs anyway. The bachelor parties my friends and I have been to was some variation of heavy drinking, some fun activity, more drinking, and then some guys went to the strip club. Those were the guys who enjoy going anyway.

Depends on the relationship and how comfortable you are with yourself. My brother and dad went with me to mine. My Dad paid the stripper with the meat curtains to see if she could fit my head in her cooch. Hence me wearing her like a hat.

CSB:

I got married shortly after getting out of the Army back in the town I grew up in. At the time my fiance and I were living in Germany. Most of my high school friends who would have been part of a crazy party were scattered around the country / world. Most of my Army friends were flying in the day of the wedding.

I went out to my favorite restaurant with a few groomsmen plus their wives, my sisters and their partners, and my mother. We had lobster and steamers. It was exactly what I wanted the night before my wedding.


...My wife, however, got plastered and half naked in a hot tub with her friends. When the police showed up to tell them to quiet down they were asked if they were strippers. Exactly what she wanted the night before her wedding.

My bachelor party last Saturday was downright crazy. It had paintball, booze and then strippers. Everything turned out awesome. This article may make a point but its because people fail to plan.

I helped plan mine. Simple as that. People are still talking about it and posting pictures because I made sure it happened the way it should.

If you just say "surprise me" then don't birch when people don't plan anything and you just go to dinner and sit there.

And yes, my fiance knows about the strippers. She didnt care.

Sun Worshiping Dog Launcher: shower_in_my_socks: The whole tradition is pretty f*cking retarded. "We're getting married because we love each other more than we ever imagined possible... so let's go cheat on each other in a crazy blowout party!"

If never seeing another naked dude/chick again, other than your spouse, is that f*cking scary to you, DON'T GET MARRIED.

I've never understood it either, nor do I understand the reaction of people who are proponents of this behavior. They seem to not only feel entitled to doing it, like it is some important right of passage, but they are simultaneously mystified and in some cases, dismissive or reactionary to people who don't want to do that for their bachelor party.


A lot cultures have something like this. When you're becoming an adult in Amish society, Taking a vow of silence, what have you. I believe (just my opinion) that when you're making a major life change, that people want to celebrate it and/or verify that they're making the right choice. I'm not going to bag on people for having the quiet bachelor party (I've been to several of those in the last few years). I also have no problem with having a raunchy party for myself or any other friend that wants one.
When you're making a choice that (supposedly) lasts the rest of your life, you may be enlightened to appreciate the stupid, youthful and fun things you did. Once you're officially married, you really shouldn't be doing some of those same things.

My bachelor party was held in Honolulu's Chinatown. My two best and oldest friends' parties were held in Vegas. But if some guy I knew was getting married now? It'd be more along the lines of camping/hiking/fishing. Partly because I'm 40 and can't party like that anymore, and partly because I have two daughters and strippers now make me feel... uncomfortable... (they're all somebody's daughter).

I'm not married ;) technically anyway (same lady for 20 years)

But I see it first hand with just about every guy I know who is married. Its natural really, kids, wife etc there are more responsibilities and you just can't take off for the weekend with the guys or stay out late drinking etc etc when you want without getting shiat from the other half. Right or wrong it is just the way it is.

i took like 8 guys from work to one of the providence strip clubs (can't remember which one now, it was like 6 years ago.) i was cringing, but they were all in from ireland for a few weeks of training and they were going bonkers for the whole thing. having my first strip club experience's up in montreal, i had a different attitude about the quality, but i guess if you're from a country where everything like that is still banned, anything is exciting.

Had my bachelor party at the beginning of April and we didn't have strippers (I didn't want any). I'm 29 and sowed those wild oats long ago. Well I was never a fan of strippers, aka paying women to get naked and tease me. I'd much rather be paying money for drinks/dinner and get some ass out of the deal at the end of the night. Not to mention most strippers are pretty nasty looking.

For my party we started the afternoon grilling, drinking, smoking, and listening to music and playing ping-pong at a friends house (outside of course). Then we headed into South Minneapolis to grab a bite to eat, some wondrous punches, and to start out bar hopping at a couple of non-pretentious bars (and bars you can actually get a drink without forearm shivering 8 people to get to the bartender).

If we had more planning and it was warmer weather I would have liked to do paintballing, or rent a pontoon and booze cruise all day, or really any recreational activity.
 
2012-06-14 02:58:46 PM
Regardless of the content of the party, the reason for the endurance of the tradition is geographical. The buddies that you see only(maybe) on holidays will make it to your wedding. It's quite possible the next time you see some will be at a funeral and the opportunity for a relatively relaxed and rowdy party shouldn't be wasted.

ne of the wildest bachelor parties I've been to:

one of the party is drunk and the dancer encourages him to bite her on the rear---being drunk and not knowing how hard he was biting, bit so hard that she lurched forward hitting her forehead on the pole stunning herself---she didn't dance after that.

One of the other in the party, who is built like a defensive end, encourages me to slap the pole dancer on the rear because he did it and she liked it. She says "go on honey smack it" I was pretty drunk and figured that since he was a big guy and strong I don't want to dissapoint, so i took steps back like a place kicker and smacked it. Everyone in the tiny club heard the loud crack of my slap over the music followed by the BING of her forehead on the pole. She didn't dance much after that.

One girl in a private dance room got caught trying to solicit services to one in the party. She was fired.

later on automatic assault rifles were fired.

And lest be forget, bachelor parties can have bad outcomes. A guy I was in the service with got married and his friends got him so drunk, he passed out. While he was out, they stripped him and shave one half of his body (except the head). Gone was half his mustache, one eye brow, the hair on one one of his arms, one side of his chest, half his pubes, one ball, one leg. And he was a rather hairy guy. Sometimes your buddies aren't your friends.

2012-06-14 03:05:44 PM

Alonjar: *shrug* its just not that hard to get laid these days... and if you're getting laid, a stripper seems hugely pointless.


You couldn't be more wrong, my friend. If you aren't getting any in the real world, watching strippers is almost intolerably cruel, like starving to death staring through the big glass window of a bakery.

It's when you intimately know the day to day challenges of a relationship or a marriage, that's when strippers are the most magical.

They are a fantasy, they aren't real. They don't have insecurities, or hang ups, or baggage. You don't have to get to know them, listen to their problems, or support them emotionally.

They are a blank canvas. A beautiful little plaything that, for a few modest dollars, will let you project anything you want onto. For the length of a pop song, its all about you. Someone is trying to please you.

Any man who gets nagged about picking up his socks or unloading the serving bowls into the wrong cabinet, or has to nod along to another half hour dissertation about how "the other women at work are just jealous of my ideas," has to see the sublime pleasure in that.

Also, they're naked. And that never gets boring.

I don't like strip clubs, but I like strip clubs. It's a conflicted opinion I'm sure many have.

next to an unlimited bankroll, taking chicks to a strip club is the best way to have a guarateed good time...they sort of act like a bridge for the strippers to come hang out and feel comfortable without dropping twenties every 5 minutes

No she doesn't, she may let you do it but it doesn't mean you aren't going to hear about it until the fall of time, it is never guilt free.

Sounds like you married the wrong girl.

I'm not married ;) technically anyway (same lady for 20 years)

But I see it first hand with just about every guy I know who is married. Its natural really, kids, wife etc there are more responsibilities and you just can't take off for the weekend with the guys or stay out late drinking etc etc when you want without getting shiat from the other half. Right or wrong it is just the way it is.

Sure there are exceptions to this rule but they are exceptions.


I see it a lot, too. Maybe I'm just lucky (this time - my first marriage was a disaster, and involved exactly what you're talking about). Then again, it's not like I want to go out partying all the time or leave for long weekends. I like being at home with the family -- maybe that's the difference. I don't neglect them, and she actually encourages me to go out. No guilt involved.

Having been to several bachelor parties I thought I'd relate the csb of the wildest one I was at.

I had a friend who was getting married for the first time. let's call him Doug. Doug wanted a blown out wild party thrown at his house so his best man went all out. There were several pros working the party. Doug was laying on his back on his weight bench with one on his johnson and one riding his mustache (why yes, that was very gross, who eats out a hooker?) Anyway, in walks his future father in law who yells at the top of his lungs "Doug, you son of a biatch, quit hoggin all the women". The father in law then proceeds to nail one of the hookers. It was one of the most bizarre things I've witnessed.
The party lasted almost as long as that marriage....lol

trappedspirit: Felgraf: The last one I went to consisted of all-day paintball, followed by a good meal with friends and hanging out. No strippers, but I think it was way more fun. You want to see naked people, the internet kinda has that covered.

I don't understand this idea that "IF YOU DON'T HAVE STRIPPERS YOU'RE NOT A REAL MAN". That seems... silly.

Exactly. What does enjoying naked females have to do with being a real man? There's lots of other things you can enjoy. Take egg white omelets, for example.


Not enjoying strip clubs != Not Enjoying naked women.

Amazingly, context and the things involved can count.

Unless of course you believe that Not wanting to see octomom naked= Not enjoying naked women, as well.

JokerMattly: So, given that my Best Man has been to a lot of clubs, all I really do need to know is that I shouldn't grab anything I haven't been told I can. Got it.


Yep. And if you have a nice face and don't act an asshole, they can sometimes be very... accomodating. But it varies from club to club, and you really should know what your intentions and comfort level are before you go. You can't undo things you do, so don't do anything you know you would regret, and don't regret anything you do.

Also, be very comfortable saying NO. To the dancers and to your friends.

My boyfriend's been to several bachelor parties in the last few years. My personal favorite was his older brother's. He came up to me and said the best man is throwing a bachelor party for his brother, it's at a strip club, and would I have a problem with him going.

"Are you planning on farking any of them?"
"No."
"Have a good time."

Later on, I asked him why he'd ask if I had a problem with it, since he's never cheated on me, nor given me any indication that he wants to. "Well, I mean, it's other women and they're shaking their tits in my face. I didn't think you'd like that."

I wanted to facepalm, but I resisted. I understood where he was coming from, but it's a strip club. They shake their tits in your face. That's how they get you to give them your money. Fortunately he didn't go through several hundred dollars. THAT I would have had a problem with.

tallguywithglasseson: 36, been to strip clubs high class and low.


I've been to the full range, finest to skankiest. The two stories that get retold are the floating whore-disco in kiev (a big dance hall where dancers are available for rent, it's on a barge), and the place in Hattisburg that is in a former gas station where the waitress told us "we don't have a liquor licence, but you can drink in your truck. But if the law comes, it's y'all".

Tat'dGreaser: Inaditch: JokerMattly: Can anyone give a first-hand primer on Strip club behaviors and etiquette for someone who has never been? I don't really know what to do, how to prepare, what is appropriate, etc etc etc.

1. Take lots of $20s and lots of $1s.
2. Don't get a dance from the first girl who asks. Take in the scene for a while.
3. Be polite.
4. It's ok to say "No thank you". Don't apologize about it.
5. Most importantly, keep your hands to yourself. They can touch you but you can't touch them.

That's about it. It's a good once in a blue moon fun.



You forgot:
-If you sit at the stage you must TIP
-In reference to above, keep only ones in your pocket and tip with those. Larger bills stay in your wallet
-You cannot take the money back if you accidentally gave her a $20 (or a 100 dollar bill, as happened to my friend last time I was at one)
-If she asks you to buy her a drink, it is usually a $20 cranberry juice and only buys you 10 mins with her. (I have had 2 exceptions though, one I bought tequila forand it worked out well, the other SHE bought ME tequila. and that worked out better....except she ended up in tears)
-Credit card reciepts are usually "discretely processed" *wink, wink*

After 10 years of bartending I finally got a "real" job. I'd been there about five years and was talking to one of my younger colleagues. We discovered we were both going to be the best man at our friend's weddings. He asked me what we were doing. I told him that Thursday my best friend and I were flying to Vegas. We were judges at a bikini contest that night. Had golf and a poker tournament Friday. Then an RV with about 15 guys were driving up Saturday for a night of heavy drinking and strip bars. We were staying Sunday to party all day then flying back Monday morning. I asked him what they were doing and he got all excited and said that 12 of them were all going over to his house to hook up all their computers into a LAN and they were going to play computer games from Friday night to Monday morning straight through without sleep.

What happened to this younger generation of fat, game playing guys? I know five guys who are 21 and don't even have their driver's license yet. I couldn't wait. I got mine three days after I turned 16.

The dancers want you to touch them as much as possible. And never buy an alcoholic drink, it's usually against the club's policy.




And when they threaten to get the bouncer, they are actually playing hard to get and want you to step it up a bit.

First off, no one should plan their own bachelor party.
Secondly, this guy didn't have a bachelor party. He had a gathering.
Third - "No Strippers"? He didn't say "No Hookers".

Public safety is one of the few middle-class castes still allowed to have bachelor parties without problems. Regular citizens, with some exceptions, can no longer risk it. We have to keep our jobs to pay their salaries and retirements, after all.

I had an awesome bachelor's weekend planned. We were all in different locations so we were all going to fly into New Orleans where one of the four in the wedding party lived. Everyone had tickets and everything. Booze, music, food - pretty much everything but the strippers because I'm not a gynecologist for a reason and I like my beer prices reasonable.

Then Katrina came by and took my friend's house away.

It was a little too late and just too much bad JuJu to do something at that point, so I just went and had some beers with my one local groomsman. We did end the night by getting desert at Hooters, mostly for the pathetic punchline. Even the ice cream was greasy.

\CSB

By the way, the bachelor party idea as popularized in song and story is stupid to begin with, much like the movie Animal House. There is nothing fun about drinking too much. Drinking, yes, but too much, no. And the stripper thing is just pervy. Maybe it's amusing for five minutes but after that, you are just weird.

bdub77: Part of it is probably that people are getting married later in life. But most bachelor parties I've been to have involved strippers, strip clubs, or escorts.

The tame parties suck, least of which is because the woman has convinced the guy she would absolutely not allow him to have strippers. F*CK THAT.


Not a huge fan of bachelor parties. Of the four I can recall: The one for my brother was just...awkward (though it did blow his mind when the stripper spent about half an hour on my lap talking to me -I recognized the artist who did her ink, he was an old friend, and it turned out we had a lot of friends in common so we spent a while catching up)

But not as awkward as the one where I was really in the wedding because I was very close to the bride and barely knew the groom but was about 90% he was gay and knew of no good way to tell the bride that without it seeming like jealousy (turned out I was right)

As for the other two: Well one was for a buddy I'd gone to Burning Man with not too long before, so really, what was there we could have done that wouldn't have felt anti-climactic by comparison? and the last was actually the best time, and it involved the bride, and the groom and all their attendants having a damn good time at Dave and Busters

Tat'dGreaser: Heamer: I'm 26 and have never been to strip club, nor have I ever seen a stripper in person (at least, none who has ever identified herself as such). I certainly don't condemn what strippers do, I've just never felt like I had a need for their service. That is, the idea of paying for a boner doesn't appeal to me. If I ever get married, my bachelor party will likely fall into the "quiet dinner" category.

I see this more and more on Fark, like a badge of honor.

Just curious, are you attracted to naked women? Now I'm not calling you gay, doing that as an insult is messed up. I'm just wondering if guys are more and more asexual these days. Or is it just the internet.


Well he said he didn't like the idea of paying for a boner, so that right there is your clue that naked women give him boners. I never liked strip clubs either. I don't want to pay a lot of money to see women get naked and give me a boner. I'm a man, if I'm sexually aroused I want to stick that hard cock somewhere, not just let my balls get bluer and bluer by the minute. I'm not a big fan of being teased, and even less of a fan when it involves me paying money for it. I guess I never had much issue seeing naked women or getting my dick wet, so maybe that factored into me not liking the strip club scene. I suppose if I was hideous or super socially awkward strippers and pro's might be more appealing to me.

I admit it," says Diamond, a 31-year-old West Village resident who made sure to filter out friends who wouldn't be happy with his G-rated menu of activities. His bachelor weekend kicked off with a civilized brunch at the organic, locally sourced East Village spot Back Forty, then moved on to a karaoke-thon and ended in an anticlimax, with Diamond and his buddies crashing on his couch to watch Ken Burns' documentary about the Civil War.



I going to guess that "Diamond" also squats to piss.

It sounds like me like these assholes are going out of their way to do things
that are entirely the antithesis of what a bachelor party should be like. What a bunch of farking losers. Why even bother having a "party" at all? The Civil War? Really? They couldn't have watched something a bit more fun & exciting, like Adventures in Babysitiing" or something? These guys sound like hipsters, but with money. It makes my blood boil!!!

Man do I hate hipsters! HIPSTERS!!!!

Bingo. Strip club bachelor parties are a young man's game.

The first of us who got married had bachelor parties that were marked by incidents such as: banging strippers, blackouts, getting lost in rural NC, temporary blindness, getting threatened with a gun (seriously), banging bridesmaids, broken bones, and trying to kill a hangover the morning of the wedding with Waffle House.

Sure that makes for great stories, but I can't properly move two fingers on my left hand anymore from when I tried to punch through a hotel door. By the time we were pushing (or past) 30, we were tired of all that. Fishing, laser tag, scotch, Belgian beers, and steaks! That's where it's at now.

Spam Pajamas: After 10 years of bartending I finally got a "real" job. I'd been there about five years and was talking to one of my younger colleagues. We discovered we were both going to be the best man at our friend's weddings. He asked me what we were doing. I told him that Thursday my best friend and I were flying to Vegas. We were judges at a bikini contest that night. Had golf and a poker tournament Friday. Then an RV with about 15 guys were driving up Saturday for a night of heavy drinking and strip bars. We were staying Sunday to party all day then flying back Monday morning. I asked him what they were doing and he got all excited and said that 12 of them were all going over to his house to hook up all their computers into a LAN and they were going to play computer games from Friday night to Monday morning straight through without sleep.

What happened to this younger generation of fat, game playing guys? I know five guys who are 21 and don't even have their driver's license yet. I couldn't wait. I got mine three days after I turned 16.

To each their own man. My (soon to be former) BIL isn't a drinker or partier at all so for his bachelor party 10 years ago we all piled into a couple cars and drove to Cedar Point for a day of coasters. It was a pretty awesome day, especially the part at the end where we road front seat on the big one by the water and all the bugs were coming up off the lake so we got absolutely covered in gnats which of course got caught on the little coaster camera. Didn't buy that pic but I really wish I had.

Of course last one I went to was my best friend's and we did it in Vegas for the usual gambling/drinking/strip club. I've been to Vegas many times and it's always awesome but that was one of the best times I've had in my life. Not that we did anything crazy, just everyone was in a party mood and good times all around. That more than any reason is why Vegas would be my #1 choice. Everyone is there to party and you can't beat the atmosphere if you are ready for a good time.

Yes because a committed monogamous relationship doesn't exist before the exchanging of the vows...

Expolaris: I didn't realize it until i read this article, but i have a bachelor party to plan.

I was asked to be the best man at my older brother's wedding next year. He's the very calm, quiet, orderly engineer type. His fiancee is a law student, the bookish labor law kind of lawyer (i can see why he likes her). I know he's got his little quirks and eccentricities but they aren't very, in the open. It's hard to get him to show his cards.

I however am the boisterous creative younger brother, i'm loud and happy, and happy with that. When i'm around my brother he puts his shields down, and gets a little more ridiculous. He lets go a little, and it's good to see i have that effect on him.

I feel it is my responsibility to make this experience as insanely awesome as possible.

fark boring, my Bro deserves better than boring. Thanks for inspiring me with your crappy idea article.

That's funny, because I'm actually getting married in two weeks, and every picture that my fiancee has shown her friends from last summer when we were at the beach has been met with, "holy fark, he's ripped" to have her reply with "yeah, he works out a lot..." But you know, hey, don't let that get in the way of your fantasy that the only people that aren't misogynistic frat-tards are fat slobs living in their parent's basement.

Yes it is. Unless they have an explicit agreement that sex outside of the relationship is ok, it's cheating.


No, it isn't. The marriage vow is sacred. Anything before that is just boyfriend/girlfriend stuff.


The word you're looking for "adultery." Cheating is more generic and generally means any sufficiently intimate act committed with someone outside the relationship without previous agreement by all parties of the relationship. Vows not required.

Tat'dGreaser: Heamer: I'm 26 and have never been to strip club, nor have I ever seen a stripper in person (at least, none who has ever identified herself as such). I certainly don't condemn what strippers do, I've just never felt like I had a need for their service. That is, the idea of paying for a boner doesn't appeal to me. If I ever get married, my bachelor party will likely fall into the "quiet dinner" category.

I see this more and more on Fark, like a badge of honor.

Just curious, are you attracted to naked women? Now I'm not calling you gay, doing that as an insult is messed up. I'm just wondering if guys are more and more asexual these days. Or is it just the internet.


For me it's because I had two good friends who used to work as strippers and one late night around a campfire after a lot of beer I learned what strippers really think about their clients, and it ain't pretty, and it ain't how I want a woman to think of me ever (with an odd mixture of pity and contempt)

OTOH I knew my wife was a keeper when the first time I took her to a burning man style camping event, said stripper friend, who I hadn't seen in a while came barrelling up to me, stark naked and literally wrapped herself around me in a hug. Without batting an eye, my now wife asked to be introduced, shook the girl's hand and complimented her nipple ring.

What you do on a bachelor party is situation, but there must be two aspects to it:
Busting of the Groom's balls
The Best Man has to plan it.

Otherwise, it isn't a bachelor party.

JackieRabbit: I didn't have a bachelor party. I didn't want one. My buds thought I was nuts, but I had no desire to go out and get tore-up drunk/stoned and screw around with a bunch of strippers and hookers. Besides, I was having a morning wedding, so I would have had to call it something of an early meeting. I guess I remembered how my sister looked at her wedding after her bachelorette bash: like she was barely there and about to puke on her groom. I didn't want that and, as it turned out, I didn't need it. My fiancé's parents sponsored a party at their house that our friends wanted to throw. There was live music, plenty of booze/pot and a lot of our mutual friends. My buddies were invited. Two came and had a great time. The rest went trolling for hookers "in my honor." One got the crabs and passed them onto his wife. Whoops.


You don't have the party the night before the wedding...have it a at least a week out. After all folks are going to need to sober up, there's bail to be paid, wounds to heal, youre' going to want to wait and see if a rash develops...all sorts of stuff

1. Take lots of $20s and lots of $1s.
2. Don't get a dance from the first girl who asks. Take in the scene for a while.
3. Be polite.
4. It's ok to say "No thank you". Don't apologize about it.
5. Most importantly, keep your hands to yourself. They can touch you but you can't touch them.

You forgot:
-If you sit at the stage you must TIP
-In reference to above, keep only ones in your pocket and tip with those. Larger bills stay in your wallet
-You cannot take the money back if you accidentally gave her a $20 (or a 100 dollar bill, as happened to my friend last time I was at one)
-If she asks you to buy her a drink, it is usually a $20 cranberry juice and only buys you 10 mins with her. (I have had 2 exceptions though, one I bought tequila forand it worked out well, the other SHE bought ME tequila. and that worked out better....except she ended up in tears)

I'm not sure what your point was. I was making a general observation about married man behavior when it comes to hanging out with the guys, not a bachelor party specifically. If you don't know one lazy guy friend that essentially blames his wife that he can't go do X,Y,Z not because she won't let him but because he just doesn't want to I don't know what to tell you.

If you don't want to do something thats cool but don't make it out like your wife won't let you do it. Just man up and say you don't want to go. This isn't specifically related to a bachelor party

I tend to agree. Once someone is in a committed relationship - and by that I mean cohabiting, with the intent to stay together long term - unless the couple has agreed to an open relationship, clandestine sex with others is cheating. But he does make a point about people, who are just steady dating. There should be no expectation of monogamy.

Felgraf: trappedspirit: Felgraf: The last one I went to consisted of all-day paintball, followed by a good meal with friends and hanging out. No strippers, but I think it was way more fun. You want to see naked people, the internet kinda has that covered.

I don't understand this idea that "IF YOU DON'T HAVE STRIPPERS YOU'RE NOT A REAL MAN". That seems... silly.

Exactly. What does enjoying naked females have to do with being a real man? There's lots of other things you can enjoy. Take egg white omelets, for example.

Not enjoying strip clubs != Not Enjoying naked women.

Amazingly, context and the things involved can count.

Unless of course you believe that Not wanting to see octomom naked= Not enjoying naked women, as well.


Right, right. What was I thinking. I guess I thought we were talking about strippers. And that does not necessarily mean a strip club. But this is not about not enjoying naked women. Why do you keep making it about that? This is about being a man which has nothing to do with women stripping naked!

I don't get your logic there about 'just steady dating.' They haven't said it's an open relationship so why would cheating be allowed? Unless you say it's open, monogamy should be assumed.

Pretty much this. I got married at 21 and had the time of my life...as far as I can remember.

One of my groomsmen was a Marine. After he spiked my drinks all night and getting me hammered WAY faster than I planned, we left the dog track at some point, got thrown out of strip club, and went hunting for hookers. Luckily my older brother was my best man and kiboshed that last part.

As I was leaving I got mugged and ended up at the ER getting 15 stitches under my eye. Two black eyes, a broken nose and a light concusion. The wedding was the next morning at 10 am, in an unairconditioned house in North FL in July. I got out of the ER around 4 am. After the wedding (which I was barely able to stand through) the padre took me aside and told that I needed to think about changing my life around.

Maybe you are and maybe you aren't. But its been my experience that guys who are way too eager to white knight women on the internet usually don't have much experience with them. Because if they did, they would know that women are equally selfish, gross, and capable as men and they certainly don't need your self-righteous ass defending them.

So if what you say is true, and you're taking a break from working out long enough to marry the women of your dreams and you couldn't be happier, what would motivate you to come into a thread of guys joking about wild times they've had bonding with their buddies over strippers and booze and piss all over it with your little "You guys are lazy, misogynistic man-children" diatribe?

My point was that I would be willing to be dollars to donuts that the people ranting on about how if you don't go swimming in a pool full of tits and booze for your bachelor party you're somehow less of a man are the same ones that come in every relationship thread biatching about their wives/exs. They live a life focused on material pursuits and then get pissed that those pursuits don't love them back. I'm not saying I'm some farking swami that has 42, life, the universe and everything all figured out, but it doesn't exactly take a genius to see that someone focused on material excess would extend that same philosophy towards choosing a partner. Then they either end up with someone equally materialistic and get pissed off when they go spend $2000 on a pair of shoes or they don't understand why they leave them because they would rather be out getting drunk in a strip club with their bros. It's an immature, selfish, childlike mentality that for some reason they believe should be praised like it is the pinnacle of all things. Forgive me for looking for a little bit more.

StrangeQ: Inaditch: doubled99: Farkin' Puritans! get out of the eighteenth century.

It's not a puritanical thing. It's about being honest and respectful toward someone you supposedly love.

Yeah, but what about booze, tits, gambling, and partying? Those are all pretty important, apparently. Your significant other should know that this is a hierarchy, and those things come first because you're a MAN and not some limp wristed nancy boy.


What???

I get that I'm being trolled and should just ignore you. I seem to be up for the tussle today, though.

None of that stuff is important, exactly, but it is fun. Cutting loose with your friends once in a while is important. Our respective partners all knew what we were up to, generally speaking, and as far as I know, none of us crossed any lines.

Anyway, I'm not entirely sure what your point is. There's a pretty clear line between a bit of raucous fun and cheating.

As others have said, if you get married in your early 30s, drunken debauchery is out of style. You did it better back in your 20s and any attempt to relive it would just be kind of a pale attempt. It wouldn't be fun, it would just be a pathetic reenactment of college and help remind you how far you've fallen. Also by that point you and most of your friends are involved in more serious relationships. Some are married, some are engaged, and some are about to married. My one buddy who had a threesome with hookers in Vegas back in college had two kids and had been married six years by the time walked down the aisle. He wasn't interested reenacting his greatest hits and ending up in divorce court because of it.

For most of us a three day weekend out of contact with the rest of civilization as we hunted, camped, and kayak was a damn good time. Let everyone catch up, renew old friendships, and no one had to post bail.

Carn: Spam Pajamas: After 10 years of bartending I finally got a "real" job. I'd been there about five years and was talking to one of my younger colleagues. We discovered we were both going to be the best man at our friend's weddings. He asked me what we were doing. I told him that Thursday my best friend and I were flying to Vegas. We were judges at a bikini contest that night. Had golf and a poker tournament Friday. Then an RV with about 15 guys were driving up Saturday for a night of heavy drinking and strip bars. We were staying Sunday to party all day then flying back Monday morning. I asked him what they were doing and he got all excited and said that 12 of them were all going over to his house to hook up all their computers into a LAN and they were going to play computer games from Friday night to Monday morning straight through without sleep.

What happened to this younger generation of fat, game playing guys? I know five guys who are 21 and don't even have their driver's license yet. I couldn't wait. I got mine three days after I turned 16.

/csbgramps
/get off my lawn and pull up your damn pants.

To each their own man. My (soon to be former) BIL isn't a drinker or partier at all so for his bachelor party 10 years ago we all piled into a couple cars and drove to Cedar Point for a day of coasters. It was a pretty awesome day, especially the part at the end where we road front seat on the big one by the water and all the bugs were coming up off the lake so we got absolutely covered in gnats which of course got caught on the little coaster camera. Didn't buy that pic but I really wish I had.

Of course last one I went to was my best friend's and we did it in Vegas for the usual gambling/drinking/strip club. I've been to Vegas many times and it's always awesome but that was one of the best times I've had in my life. Not that we did anything crazy, just everyone was in a party mood and good times all around. That more than any reason is why Vegas would be my #1 choi ...


You should have been there this past weekend. Busiest weekend of the year. Three nights that were normally $1000 at Venetian or Mandalay Bay went up to $2800 for Fri-Sun. The Fight, Electric Daisy Carnival, huge hairdresser convention. The funniest part was seeing the kids in the morning all coming down from E and covered in fluorescent paint. Even funnier because we were already drunk by 9:00 when they came stumbling back to the hotel from the raves. Vegas is always awesome. I had more fun with my girlfriend then I did going to strip bars at any bachelor party.

Sound like my husband's. They went to Chili's, then went to play Magic, Mario Cart and Super Smash Brothers. They did have booze at his friend's place, but as he doesn't drink, he was the DD who took everyone home.

Magnanimous_J: StrangeQ: That's funny, because I'm actually getting married in two weeks, and every picture that my fiancee has shown her friends from last summer when we were at the beach has been met with, "holy fark, he's ripped" to have her reply with "yeah, he works out a lot..." But you know, hey, don't let that get in the way of your fantasy that the only people that aren't misogynistic frat-tards are fat slobs living in their parent's basement.

Maybe you are and maybe you aren't.


Knew that reply was coming. You don't have to believe a single word I type, and I don't care one bit to try and prove any of it. I don't have it. All I'm saying is I see debauchery being played up here like it's absolutely necessary or else you're just not a part of the real human race, and I think that is completely rediculous.

But for full disclosure, yeah, I'm in the group the article is talking about. I'm 30, my fiancee is 26. I've done my share of partying, and I went to more than a couple strip joints when I was in the military, but even then I didn't care for them; I didn't see the point, other than draining my bank account. I think it's a maturity/immaturity thing. When I was in high school and in the military I would go bottoms up on a bottle of Smirnoff just to show how much of a fark I didn't give. And yeah, it was fun, but not some mandatory right of passage that I would somehow be less of a man for if I hadn't participated in.

So they told you, anyway.

Another tip for a successful bachelor party. The groom shouldn't be the wildest one involved (as I was) or the sole voice of reason (as my buddy was at his a few years ago). The groom should fall somewhere in the middle on the debauchery scale.
 
2012-06-14 04:14:09 PM
Its weird...FightDirector is going to be my best man, and generally speaking, I suspect its going to be a Warmachine or Battletech tournament in the morning, followed up by a shiatload of hockey, passing out in a hotel room somewhere, waking up, get married, go from there.
 
2012-06-14 04:14:18 PM
Never been to a bachelor party; if I ever get married I most likely won't have one then either. There's nobody to be a best man anyways.

Got dragged to one strip club by my biological father when I was in my mid twenties, won't be going to another. Even if that wasn't the trashiest experience in my life, having him there still would've ruined it.

Why yes, I am a blast at parties.

Carn: MysticSavage: 2KanZam: Tat'dGreaser: Inaditch: JokerMattly: Can anyone give a first-hand primer on Strip club behaviors and etiquette for someone who has never been? I don't really know what to do, how to prepare, what is appropriate, etc etc etc.

1. Take lots of $20s and lots of $1s.
2. Don't get a dance from the first girl who asks. Take in the scene for a while.
3. Be polite.
4. It's ok to say "No thank you". Don't apologize about it.
5. Most importantly, keep your hands to yourself. They can touch you but you can't touch them.

That's about it. It's a good once in a blue moon fun.


You forgot:
-If you sit at the stage you must TIP
-In reference to above, keep only ones in your pocket and tip with those. Larger bills stay in your wallet
-You cannot take the money back if you accidentally gave her a $20 (or a 100 dollar bill, as happened to my friend last time I was at one)
-If she asks you to buy her a drink, it is usually a $20 cranberry juice and only buys you 10 mins with her. (I have had 2 exceptions though, one I bought tequila forand it worked out well, the other SHE bought ME tequila. and that worked out better....except she ended up in tears)
-Credit card reciepts are usually "discretely processed" *wink, wink*

Allow me to add, leave your credit card at home...I had a friend who's willpower was weak and came out of the Champagne Room with a lot less than he went in with.

Don't go into the Champagne Room is probably a really good rule for first timers. Or most of us.

If the stripper asks me to buy her a drink, i would usually tell her I'd much rather giver her the money than have me pay for an over priced fancy drink where she only gets a small cut of it.

A very freindly lap dance usually followed.

But then again that was in my strip club days. when i had a Sheen like obsession with strippers and a farkload of money.

DoBeDoBeDo: There are two types of strip clubs. Those with HOT women that I want to see naked, and ones with women I think are hilarious in their career choice.

I can get drunk in either with my buddies


Yep. Bu tI have to admit, after a while it's just kind of sad. Probably I spent to much time behind the stage. For years I knew a lot of men and women who worked these places, and let me tell you it's a deeply damaged world behind the stage. It's not all bad, but it damn sure isn't all good.

StrangeQ: Okay...so I look at them, and then what? "Nice tits, here's $20, come shake them in my face." That's money well spent...


Hey don't go if you don't want to go.

You said there was nothing special about a naked woman, and that they were all the same.

I'm pointing out that a beautiful sexy naked woman is a thing of beauty and there's nothing wrong with that. Quite a lot is GOOD about that.

Not sure what point you are trying to make, but you should be able to accept that most men truly enjoy the sight of an attractive female nude. And that they can do so without losing their minds, their fidelity, or their wallets.

The flip side to this is everyone has been married for a long time and want to get a little crazy. but I hear what you are saying. If I was to get married now A) everyone we know would be like, big deal (we have been together for a looooong time) and B) the bachelor party would probably consist of a destination concert of some sort. So the boozing etc etc would be natural in that setting. The stripper type entertainment would probably be a late night or after thought if anything C) most of my friends have cool wives etc so if they weren't with us wouldn't really care for the most part. It would just be an excuse to go all out for a fun weekend really

JackieRabbit: Coco LaFemme: My boyfriend's been to several bachelor parties in the last few years. My personal favorite was his older brother's. He came up to me and said the best man is throwing a bachelor party for his brother, it's at a strip club, and would I have a problem with him going.

"Are you planning on farking any of them?"
"No."
"Have a good time."

Later on, I asked him why he'd ask if I had a problem with it, since he's never cheated on me, nor given me any indication that he wants to. "Well, I mean, it's other women and they're shaking their tits in my face. I didn't think you'd like that."

I wanted to facepalm, but I resisted. I understood where he was coming from, but it's a strip club. They shake their tits in your face. That's how they get you to give them your money. Fortunately he didn't go through several hundred dollars. THAT I would have had a problem with.

But a lot of women would have had a major problem with it. I think it was considerate of him to discuss it with you.


I agree, and I wasn't mad at him. The way he brought it to me though, it was almost like he was asking for permission, which is what I found strange. I'm not a prude, and well....I'm sure he's figured that out by now, so I've never had a problem with strippers/strip clubs. They serve a purpose. Not one for me, since I'm not interested in naked women, but clearly I'm not the target demographic.

Anyway, he said he a good time and didn't get too drunk. He was a bit loopy when he got home, but he wasn't falling-down-and-passing-out-in-the-toilet drunk. His brother on the other hand.....yikes. Barely made it through the service, he was so hungover. Ever been to a Jewish wedding when the groom nearly pukes on someone's head while doing the Hora? Good times, good times. He's up in the chair, they're bouncing him up and down, and I can just see his face turning 12 shades of green from where we were sitting. My boyfriend's sister-in-law was less than pleased.

Magnanimous_J: Alonjar: *shrug* its just not that hard to get laid these days... and if you're getting laid, a stripper seems hugely pointless.

You couldn't be more wrong, my friend. If you aren't getting any in the real world, watching strippers is almost intolerably cruel, like starving to death staring through the big glass window of a bakery.

It's when you intimately know the day to day challenges of a relationship or a marriage, that's when strippers are the most magical.

They are a fantasy, they aren't real. They don't have insecurities, or hang ups, or baggage. You don't have to get to know them, listen to their problems, or support them emotionally.

They are a blank canvas. A beautiful little plaything that, for a few modest dollars, will let you project anything you want onto. For the length of a pop song, its all about you. Someone is trying to please you.

Any man who gets nagged about picking up his socks or unloading the serving bowls into the wrong cabinet, or has to nod along to another half hour dissertation about how "the other women at work are just jealous of my ideas," has to see the sublime pleasure in that.

Also, they're naked. And that never gets boring.

I'm not sure what your point was. I was making a general observation about married man behavior when it comes to hanging out with the guys, not a bachelor party specifically. If you don't know one lazy guy friend that essentially blames his wife that he can't go do X,Y,Z not because she won't let him but because he just doesn't want to I don't know what to tell you.

If you don't want to do something thats cool but don't make it out like your wife won't let you do it. Just man up and say you don't want to go. This isn't specifically related to a bachelor party

Oh and you sound like a hoot at festivities

My point was that I would be willing to be dollars to donuts that the people ranting on about how if you don't go swimming in a pool full of tits and booze for your bachelor party you're somehow less of a man are the same ones that come in every relationship thread biatching about their wives/exs. They live a life focused on material pursuits and then get pissed that those pursuits don't love them back. I'm not saying I'm some farking swami that has 42, life, the universe and everything all figu ...


I thought you were my ex-wife for a second. That described both of us. Then we had a kid at 37 and you realize life isn't about you anymore. We got divorced for a lot of different reasons but you described some of them. Those years until the divorce, house, taxes, etc, etc were all final were the hardest. Now I know life is all about my son. That determined where I lived, the car I drive, everything...3 ½ days a week it's all him. The other 3 ½ days me and my girlfriend are getting drunk and picking up on chicks.

The problem, as is so often the case, is the people on both sides of this issue thinking that they're superior in some way. If you like a little debauchery from time to time, go for it. If you don't, do something else. Who cares?

Sounds too rich for my blood. I like going when the rooms are nice and cheap so I can waste more on booze and gambling. Then again, I usually stay at cheaper spots like MGM (one of my favs) or the like so those would probably be more in the 200-300 range per night. I'm actually looking at Amtrak tickets for my friend's bachelor party in AC in July right now. AC is ok, it scratches the gambling itch a bit but it's no Vegas. There will hopefully be a Vegas trip either late summer or sometime in the fall for me.

Because when you ARE old and jaded and you HAVE been there and done that and you have paid the price for reckless debauchery in your youth and now you are older and more mature, it makes sense to forego the foolish pleasures of a younger man.

But when you ARE a younger man, and you are simply choosing NOT to have the stupid and foolish adventures and reckless debauchery... well that's just kind of pussiefied and lame. And the "it's not cool" excuse sound slike the pudgy kid who stayed home becasue he was afraid to get into trouble.

(Honest answer. Some people play it safe, some people take risks. It's OK to be either, but the safety boys always try to rationalize it as "being sensible" or somesuch)

I laughed when I read the article but after reading this thread, a thread on bachelor parties, mind you, and seeing where it's gone, I truly understand the SAD tag now.

So now I'm really curious, How many of you married/In a committed relationship farkers believe that monogamy is an essential/required aspect of that relationship?

I'd always assumed that since farkers tend to be younger, brighter, less religious and less "conventional" that the average population that that number would be failrly low, but after reading this thread I begin to wonder if I'm right about that?

Yeah. Under no circumstances is that acceptable. On more than one occasion as best man, I've had to fend off groom's friends actively trying to get him laid, and quite capable of getting it done. What was puzzling was how eager they were, and how utterly unphased by the notion that it would be WRONG they were. Because once i told them that was off the table, they just picked up a hooker for themselves.

I still cringe whe I occassionaly run into them and their wives.

Two driving reasons for margin are:

1. Stability (economic and to raise a family)
2. Social acceptance.

Monogamy is the easiest way for both. Regarding monogamy and Point 1, if you disagree I'd invite you to read up on all the studies done with commune culture. The sociologists found that more polyamorous communes tended to implode. Ira Wasserman has some good work on it.

/other methods can work, the point is monogamy is easier and more predictable to manage giving it some advantages

It's also worth noting that the guy in the article is 35. People in general are getting married much later in life and the wild oats were all sown years ago.


This.

I'm just 25, and still I hear folks my age talk about how they drank such and such number of beers, puked, and had a hangover... like I should be impressed. I mean, come on. I figured out by 18 that drinking like that is a losing proposition.

Not that drinking is wrong or anything; I enjoy a nice buzz just as much as the next guy. Self-control makes it actually worthwhile to drink, though, because you don't go through a hundred dollars at the bar in a night or somesuch ridiculousness.

Bachelor parties are for the bachelor, and if he's well beyond the point where drinking too much and watching someone strip is entertaining, then who is anyone else to judge?

Don't confuse 'monogamy' with 'bounds of relationship agreed upon.' I can't speak for everyone here, of course, but monogamy is just the easiest example for what boils down to 'breach of trust by means of intimacy,' and supposes a monogomous relationship. It could just as easily be a couple cheating on a trio if that there was an expectation of fidelity.

Not married, but we've been together a long time. I expect him to be faithful to me, and he expects me to be faithful to him. If I'm no longer good enough for him, he's free to break up with me and go be with who he wants, and vice versa. After almost 10 years, I'm happy to report, I'm quite happy with him. I'd like to think if he's been with me that long, he shares the same sentiment.

How hard is it to keep your dick in your pants or your legs closed? If you and your partner are into swinging or open relationships, that's obviously different. If you're not though.....why cheat? I've never understood it.

Pretty close to what we did for my buddies bachelor party about 6 months ago. Tons of alcohol and we played the heck out of the newer/est Mortal Kombat. When he finally passed out we got out the blowup sheep, signed it, tucked it in bed with him, and took a bunch of pictures.

I am pretty sure we did other stuff too.. I just don't remember everything :)

Exactly!

My old boss took me to a strip club and it was really one of the saddest places I've ever been. The winner of absolute saddest was the strip club I went to with my friends once, where a pregnant-looking, octogenarian-looking woman offered me a blowjob for $100.

strip clubs aren't cool. they may be fun, they may provide some pleasure, but almost nobody would argue strip clubs are "cool." And frankly, who are you to judge a man's worth by whether he wants to get super drunk, oggle some (likely mishapen from my club experience) boobs and generally acting a fool?

Then you follow it up with saying the type of person who is young but chooses not to have stupid and foolish adventures is pussiefied and lame but that you aren't judging anybodies manliness. If you could maybe pick which of those 2 opposed views you actually felt, i would be WAY less confused by the way this conversation is going....

LavenderWolf: 25


25 year old here too. I've been to two strip clubs in my home town.

I went to an actual strip club with my best friend and his cousin from Jersey. She sat in between the two of us at at stage side smoking a cigar like she was the farkin' boss. One time she just tapped my best friend on his chest and he tipped the stripper for her. We finished off her Atlanta experience by going to Waffle House drunk at 4am. Ah, Memories. (fark YEAH ATL)

The second time we went to the Clermont Lounge for the lulz.

CrazyCracka420: Tat'dGreaser: Heamer: I'm 26 and have never been to strip club, nor have I ever seen a stripper in person (at least, none who has ever identified herself as such). I certainly don't condemn what strippers do, I've just never felt like I had a need for their service. That is, the idea of paying for a boner doesn't appeal to me. If I ever get married, my bachelor party will likely fall into the "quiet dinner" category.

I see this more and more on Fark, like a badge of honor.

Just curious, are you attracted to naked women? Now I'm not calling you gay, doing that as an insult is messed up. I'm just wondering if guys are more and more asexual these days. Or is it just the internet.

Well he said he didn't like the idea of paying for a boner, so that right there is your clue that naked women give him boners. I never liked strip clubs either. I don't want to pay a lot of money to see women get naked and give me a boner. I'm a man, if I'm sexually aroused I want to stick that hard cock somewhere, not just let my balls get bluer and bluer by the minute. I'm not a big fan of being teased, and even less of a fan when it involves me paying money for it. I guess I never had much issue seeing naked women or getting my dick wet, so maybe that factored into me not liking the strip club scene. I suppose if I was hideous or super socially awkward strippers and pro's might be more appealing to me.


Lookout, we got a badass here.

tlchwi02: first you say the person saying strip clubs aren't cool is a pudgy kid staying home


In response to the charicterization about whether it was "cool". Your term and usage. The point being made is that "cool" is NOT the point of debate with people who think it is lame for young people to forego the debauchery largely site unseen. Again, even a cursory glance at my posts make it abundantly clear that I know titty bars are often sad, desperate affairs.

tlchwi02: Then you follow it up with saying the type of person who is young but chooses not to have stupid and foolish adventures is pussiefied and lame but that you aren't judging anybodies manliness.

Exactly. Which is why I made it a point that it's OK not to be the kind of person who goes in for wild debauchery. YOU are inserting "manliness" in here. I have said nothing of the kind. My point is that people who ARE the quiet stay at home types look a bit silly rationalizing it by saying it's "dumb" or "uncool". And that you can;t relly say that you are so over that whole scene when you haven;t actually BEEN in that scene.

Try it like this: It's one thing when you don't drink because you have had more than your fill of drunken stupidity, hangovers and/or you have come through a drinking problem. It's another thing to not drink becasue you think beer tastes "icky" and "only morons get drunk".

It's not about "manliness" or whatever nonsense you are trying to insert. It's about ACTUALLY been there done that versus saw it and decided not to go for it.

I would also point out that I was responding to a simple question and gave an honest answer. You are under no obligation to accept it, but I have now spent as much time debating it as I think courtesy requires.

JackieRabbit: And lest be forget, bachelor parties can have bad outcomes. A guy I was in the service with got married and his friends got him so drunk, he passed out. While he was out, they stripped him and shave one half of his body (except the head). Gone was half his mustache, one eye brow, the hair on one one of his arms, one side of his chest, half his pubes, one ball, one leg. And he was a rather hairy guy. Sometimes your buddies aren't your friends.

I'd just like to know where this idea came from that in one's early 30's, you become settled, boring, and "wise." Lots of posters in this thread are saying that drinking, whoring, and partying are for young men in their 20's, but that eventually you put these things away and simply desire a nice scotch and a steak with old friends every once in awhile. I'm 27 years old and live as hedonistic of a lifestyle as possible on my current budget and within the bounds dictated by society.

This feeling will dissipate in the next 5-7 years? I have to say my wife will be greatly pleased by that, but I'm a bit saddened that all the fire and excitement will be drained out of me so soon.

Because when you ARE old and jaded and you HAVE been there and done that and you have paid the price for reckless debauchery in your youth and now you are older and more mature, it makes sense to forego the foolish pleasures of a younger man.

But when you ARE a younger man, and you are simply choosing NOT to have the stupid and foolish adventures and reckless debauchery... well that's just kind of pussiefied and lame. And the "it's not cool" excuse sound slike the pudgy kid who stayed home becasue he was afraid to get into trouble.

(Honest answer. Some people play it safe, some people take risks. It's OK to be either, but the safety boys always try to rationalize it as "being sensible" or somesuch)


Yes, how dare they attempt to justify their sensible ways!

I will agree on a few points.

First, I think learning to take risks is part of growing up. I think moments of reckless abandon are good for you, too, especially when you're about to get married and you're in the home stretch. But that doesn't necessarily mean blackouts and strippers.

I think bachelor parties should be about doing something that the groom wants to do, but needs coaxing to do. There should be a bit of friendly teasing and a general allowance for the groom to act out of character.

What there shouldn't be is serious danger, or big lasting repercussions. And that means you want your bachelor party to be planned by someone with a bit of sense -- someone you can trust to get you home in one piece.

//csb - the best bachelor party I went to was for a bisexual guy who dragged all his friends, gay or straight, to a strip club. Amazingly he hadn't actually been to a gentlemen's club before. We made sure it wasn't too seedy, kept him supplied with booze and dollar bills, and took turns escorting him at the bar while the rest of us sat at a table. It was a mix of stories, lechery, sincere appreciation, and bad jokes. The gay guys were rating the girls for dancing prowess and skank factor (few did well), the hetero guys were surprised to find that at least one of the gay guys like boobies too, and we all got real interested when one of the strippers looked like Claudia Christian from Babylon 5. Our Groom had a blast, and that's what matters.

Personally, I've never been a huge fan of paying to look at half-naked ladies, but I don't actively mind it or object to others enjoying it. I just don't care for the skanky, fake-boob, glazed-eyed look that sadly pervades such places. That and I hate cigarette smoke and sticky floors.....

My first marriage was rotten, but for my second marriage, when I was 37, my best man put together an awesome event. It was a contest, to see whether I, the groom, could complete a certain set of tasks within a certain amount of time. Sort of like a scavenger hunt, except with strippers, alcohol, and various other unsavory activities. The loser, or losers, would have to pick from a set of some disgusting tasks, such as trading shirts with a homeless person or dumpster diving for dinner.

The first rule was that the entire time I had to wear a prisoner costume with white/black striping and a big "GROOM" embossed mettle plate held around my neck by a chain. And, a hat. Second rule was that I had to drink a beer every hour, which doesn't sound bad but my friends would push them on me much more often insisting that I had forgotten to drink one in the hopes that I'd be too drunk to win the game.

The other requirements:

- Get a free drink from a bartender. That was the first one that I took care of. It wasn't easy to talk him into it, and he gave me a "cherry pie" which is basically some sweet concoction in a glass that's then put into another glass and covered with whip cream and a cherry. In order to drink it, one's face is covered with whip cream. Embarassing, but hell, I was already in a prisoner outfit.

- Got a phone number from a stripper. We went to a club, the usual thing. Friends bought me a lapdance, I told stripper that I needed a phone number, she wrote hers on my shirt. They didn't believe it and when we left they called her. She answered.

- Beg for $10 in change on the Reno strip. It wasn't easy, and it was the one time I was worried that we'd be arrested. It took about an hour and during that time I was propositioned by a group of three girls who wrote their phone number on my shirt. Then I was propositioned by some older woman in front of one of the casino She wanted her picture taken with me and then grabbed my balls while her friend took the picture. She also wrote on my shirt. I got the last $5 from that lady.

- I shared a beer with a homeless person. My friends couldn't believe it, but I had the beer and I saw some guy who looked scruffy. I asked if he was homeless. I asked if he'd share a beer and give me a smoke. So, i drank down half the beer and gave the rest to him and chatted for a bit.

- I got an item of underwear from a woman at a casino. My friends are still amazed at this one, but really, I just told some lady at a bar that I needed a bra or panties, and she happened to have a bra in her purse and just gave it to me.

- They took me to another club where I was assaulted by strippers on stage. I was so drunk that I don't remember that part very well, other than that they really lay it on when spanking a groom.

- I then had to sing "I'm a little teapot in bar", which I did. The hot, female bartender joined me in it and was really sweet to me.

- As my last task, I had to get kicked out of a bar. It was 1:55 am, and 5 minutes to go. My friends were frantic that they were going to lose. I had to convince this really sweet bartender to kick me out, and I was so wasted that I couldn't explain it over my friends doing their best to convince her that I didn't know what I was talking about. Finally, at 2:10 am, the bounced came over and dragged me out. Then they let me back in. Since I technically finished the whole thing, but was 10 minutes past the deadline, we decided to call it a tie.

My best man kept me from getting into any real trouble. When I got home, I got rid of the shirt, though I really wish that I could have had it framed instead.

I'm not much of a partier or drinker, never really have been. What I learned about myself is that I really have no shame, and that it's a true blessing to have a best friend that you can trust. Especially when he has the pictures...

I could give a shiat if you want to go to a strip club or not. The only time I've ever been to a strip club is for bachelor parties. The last two bachelor parties I've been to didn't have strippers involved, and they were a blast. What they did have, though, was copious amounts of alcohol, cigars, gambling, golfing and friends that wanted to have FUN. Friends that wanted to party like we were 24 years old again.

Listen, I don't care what anyone else does for fun, but if my friend told me his bachelor party was going to consist of brunch and a Ken Burns Civil War marathon, I'd maybe show up for the brunch. Maybe. My Dad would make fun of that, and he's about as conservative as it gets, he's never really drank AND he loves the Civil War.

A bachelor/ette party is supposed to be one last hurrah for the both the bride and groom. One last chance to be immature. One last chance to go out with their stable of friends and do the things they loved to do when they were single. Things they won't get to do as much now that they're married. Golf. Gamble. Smoke cigars. Get wasted without any concerns - with the possible exception of a hangover. That's the point. It's not about strippers, which everyone here (including you) seems to think - but it can be if you want it to be. If you think you don't need to do these things, that's fine, but you're not really having a bachelor party. You're just a bunch of boring guys hanging out.

If you've found a partner that loves to do all the things you do - or has no problem with you doing all those things - that's fabulous, but the fact is, life has obligations. Work, family, school, etc. and a lot of people won't have the chance to do those things later in life. And don't give me this holier than thou (FTA): "My wife is my best friend, and I look at marriage as growing up and maturing - and traditional bachelor-party stuff is the opposite of that, in my book," either, because - once again - that's the point!

So, yes, even after reading through all the comments in here, I stand by my original comment, "The pussification of men in this country continues," and, yes, I think you're a pussy if you don't agree with me. And before anyone here decides to tell me how hot their wife is, or how ripped they are, or how much better than me they are for not wanting to do these things, save it, because I don't give a shiat about that either. I know who I am, and I don't know (or care) who you are or how "great" your life is.

jvowles: MacGuff: The p@ssification of men in this country continues. That article made me angry just reading it...

And apparently the annoying high school jock contingent still thinks they know what it means to be a man because they got hair down there first.

There's all kinds of men, and some of them have hang-ups, or preferences, or temperaments that don't lend themselves to the traditional 12-year-old boy's notions of what manhood is.


I don't have the time to reply to your comment like I did to the last one, so let me just say this:

1. Read my last post, and
2. High school is over. Grow some balls and quit being a pussy.

Magnanimous_J: It happens so gradually that you won't notice it.


I guess that's some consolation. I'd love to put pleasure a little lower on my priority list sometimes, so that's fine I suppose.

I interact with lots of elderly folks for work, and I keep hearing, "Getting old isn't for pussies."

Magorn: So now I'm really curious, How many of you married/In a committed relationship farkers believe that monogamy is an essential/required aspect of that relationship?


Just coming out of a marriage (well, more than that, in the happy afterglow of divorce where the reality of being single again outweighs the sense of longing for what I once had), and for it to be a committed relationship,monogamy is absolutely 100% essential. If there isn't monogamy then it isn't a committed relationship, it's just kind of fooling around. It's a respect thing, if I truly love and respect my partner, why would i seek out alternatives that undermine that idea of respect and love?

Yes, yes, because men who don't want to go to strip clubs are pussies. Stunning logic.

The problem with strippers isn't that it's awkward, it's that the good ones are so farking expensive it's ridiculous. It's like $300+ tip for a champagne room thingy, which is totally bullshiat.

You said men were pussies if they didn't agree with you, your premise being men in this country are being "pussified", whatever the fark that means. I don't usually equate manhood with pussies, but maybe you do. So yeah, you're saying that just not in those exact words. Just like "separation of church and state" isn't found in the Constitution, but the idea of it is part of the way we operate.

Coco LaFemme: Magorn: So now I'm really curious, How many of you married/In a committed relationship farkers believe that monogamy is an essential/required aspect of that relationship?

I'd always assumed that since farkers tend to be younger, brighter, less religious and less "conventional" that the average population that that number would be failrly low, but after reading this thread I begin to wonder if I'm right about that?

Not married, but we've been together a long time. I expect him to be faithful to me, and he expects me to be faithful to him. If I'm no longer good enough for him, he's free to break up with me and go be with who he wants, and vice versa. After almost 10 years, I'm happy to report, I'm quite happy with him. I'd like to think if he's been with me that long, he shares the same sentiment.

How hard is it to keep your dick in your pants or your legs closed? If you and your partner are into swinging or open relationships, that's obviously different. If you're not though.....why cheat? I've never understood it.


see that's the interesting thing: In the 8 years I've been married I've chosen to be monogamous, because honestly I haven't wanted anyone else, but I think part of that comes from the fact that I know that if I chose to sleep with someone else, as long as it wasn't one of my wife's close relatives, and there was no deception involved , it would be okay with her.

I honestly think so monogamy is a human default state, but making it mandatory start a "forbidden fruit" thing that causes folks to stray

Wait what? So are you in a monogamous relationship or not? Would you tell your SO before or after? I guess what I'm asking is does your wife accept this?
I've been in all sorts of nontraditional relationships myself but the rules were well set.

my one friend's "bachelor party" involved about six of us going out to dinner, and then going back to his house to play video games and goof off. my other friend's "bachelor party" (i was the best man) involved the entire wedding party (including bride and bridesmaids) getting drunk at the bride's parents' house. my brother is getting married next week (i am the best man again) and he's not having a bachelor party at all because he doesn't have any friends, and even if he did have a party, it would be us sitting around and playing video games.

Girion47: CrazyCracka420: Tat'dGreaser: Heamer: I'm 26 and have never been to strip club, nor have I ever seen a stripper in person (at least, none who has ever identified herself as such). I certainly don't condemn what strippers do, I've just never felt like I had a need for their service. That is, the idea of paying for a boner doesn't appeal to me. If I ever get married, my bachelor party will likely fall into the "quiet dinner" category.

I see this more and more on Fark, like a badge of honor.

Just curious, are you attracted to naked women? Now I'm not calling you gay, doing that as an insult is messed up. I'm just wondering if guys are more and more asexual these days. Or is it just the internet.

Well he said he didn't like the idea of paying for a boner, so that right there is your clue that naked women give him boners. I never liked strip clubs either. I don't want to pay a lot of money to see women get naked and give me a boner. I'm a man, if I'm sexually aroused I want to stick that hard cock somewhere, not just let my balls get bluer and bluer by the minute. I'm not a big fan of being teased, and even less of a fan when it involves me paying money for it. I guess I never had much issue seeing naked women or getting my dick wet, so maybe that factored into me not liking the strip club scene. I suppose if I was hideous or super socially awkward strippers and pro's might be more appealing to me.

Lookout, we got a badass here.

WTF??? Was that headline written by a chick? There is no damn way that is an accurate portrayal of a bachelor party, unless the bachelor and his buddies are all homos. Admitedly I dont go to bachelor parties much anymore but I did go to one just about 3 years ago. It was very much a titty fest with a stripper and lots of booze.
 
2012-06-14 11:43:56 PM

jvowles: What there shouldn't be is serious danger, or big lasting repercussions. And that means you want your bachelor party to be planned by someone with a bit of sense


Oh I agree. I don't know that anyone is suggesting trying to re-enact the Hangover.No one should be getting laid or arrested at a bachelor party. Sober transportation arranged beforehand, etc. Controlled and safe pandemonium.

//although I see your CSB and raise you truly stupid and dangerous drunken bachelor party in Puerto Rico.
(Pro-Tip: When the iron door and the walls around the titty bar have multiple bullet holes, you ar ein the W-R-O-N-G part of town and it's well past time to head back to the resort.)

BHK: I'm not much of a partier or drinker, never really have been. What I learned about myself is that I really have no shame, and that it's a true blessing to have a best friend that you can trust. Especially when he has the pictures...


No good can ever really come of bachelor party pictures.

I'm allowed not to be monogamous, with her blessing. Though I do believe she'd prefer a heads-up/veto if circumstances allowed, even that is not mandatory according to her. As a matter of practicality,I haven't had sex with another woman since I've been with her because I haven't wanted to (though to be strictly accurate, there are kink related activities that neither of us consider "sexual" per se , that both of us have indulged in with other people)

I'm getting married in a few weeks. If he wants to go to the strip club with his friends, that's cool. Knowing him though, he'll end up cooking out and drinking copious amounts of beer at his friend's house. We go to stripclubs together, so it just isn't a big deal for either of us. Actually, we'll likely end up going together. I don't feel any need for a bachelorette party.
All that beind said, I know why a lot of people my age don't care about stripclubs. There is so much awesome porn out there, why pay when you can pull up however many naked chicks as you want? The main appeal for us is that we go with friends and enjoy the booze, atmosphere, he loves watching me flirt withstrippers. One girlfriend ALWAYS ends up kissing at least one stripper and her boyfriend gets all pissed off. It's HILARIOUS.
Oh... and we always have mindblowing sex after we go.
