Inaditch: Damn. I forgot that rule. We went with some cheap bastards who made me and one other guy pay for almost everything. Well, a couple of the guys pitched in a little.


Yeah. Been there too. THAT really pisses me off.

I've been to one where two of the party got a dozen dances each for themselves and chipped in $40 each for the groom. I was actually part of the bride's contingent, so I couldn't realy say anything, but what a couple of douchenozzles.

I'll never forget my brother yelling "this is MY tree and I'll pee on it if I want to"

We dragged him indoors before the neighbors called the cops.


Nowadays, he would be arrested for being a terrorist.

boardgames ? WTF is wrong with you people.

Booze, Drugs, booze, booze, titties, titties, drugs, food, food, gambling, drugs, drugs, titties titties booze.

Bachelor party isn't a movie it is an instructional video.

Here is the deal. Do whatever the hell you want but make sure it is the stuff your soon to be wife is going to give you crap about when you get married. And don't give me any of that my wife lets me do whatever I want BS. 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.

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!!!

shower_in_my_socks: 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 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.


/stripper sex = a good time.

LaraAmber: 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.)


I would feel uncomfortable, yeah. Which is why I've only gone with friends of mine. It's not the end all be all of life, but if a guy wants to do it, that's the time. If he doesn't want to, just do whatever makes him happy. Plain and simple

trappedspirit: Do you actually know any guy that needs this told to them?


I have. Seriously.

Also the guys asking has never been, and I don't know how old he is, so it's worth pointing out.

/CSB. Took a young coworker to a titty bar, and he was soooo convinced that this one girl was TOTALLY into him. We ragged on him and teased him mercilessly for days afterwards.

... until she showed up to pick him up from work.

//CSB II. I have taken more than one stripper home from the club back in the day. It helped that I was friends with the Bouner, DJ and bartenders, STILL not a good idea.

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.

My favorite bachelor party was pretty tame: we escorted the groom around town on a tour of the city's best tacos.

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.
 
2012-06-14 02:51:51 PM
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.
 
2012-06-14 02:52:44 PM
If that's the case, you need better groomsmen.

I won't regale you with tales of the party we through in Vegas. Lets just say that we all had a no photography clause, and everyone had to delete their facebook applications from their phones.
 
2012-06-14 02:54:31 PM
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).

A friend of mine called in sick to his bachelor party. We went to the nudie bar without him. Had a great time.

The mild guys who don't want a party or girls are amusing given that every one of their girls got farked the night before.
That's why they love "nice guys". Leaves them free to nail the old boyfriends.

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.

Tapakip: To be fair, all the strippers in Providence should be thrown out


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.

BojanglesPaladin:
A) The Bachelor pays for nothing. That's the job of the groom's party.


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.
 
2012-06-14 02:57:06 PM
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.

I've never been invited to a bachelor party, but after reading this, perhaps I have.
 
2012-06-14 02:59:36 PM
36, been to strip clubs high class and low.
I don't like strip clubs. At all. I avoid them. Hopefully nobody I know that's getting married at this stage in the game feels compelled to drag me to one.

Strippers that come to the bachelor party however... that can be OK.

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.

If your plan involves cheating on your soon-to-be wife as implied, you're a dick. If she's cool with you getting some on the side, high five.
 
2012-06-14 03:04:25 PM
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.

Anyone else reminded of the guy in junior high who swore up and down that he got laid over the summer with like 9 different girls, but for some reason blushes and stammers when he gets an accidental peek down a girl's shirt?
 
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.

justanotherfarkinfarker: Heamer: I'm 26 and have never been to strip club... That is, the idea of paying for a boner doesn't appeal to me.

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.

/pro tip: go with some girls


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

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

The observations are kind of skewed tho, because for every guy who has a wife that gives them crap, there are the guys that just don't want to go out and do stuff but they are to chickenshiat to say it and blame their wives.
 
2012-06-14 03:11:39 PM

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.

I was best man for my best friend last year and he said that he absolutely did not want a bachelor's party. So, I threw one for him anyway. We spent an entire night playing old school Car Wars, eating snacks, and drinking some beers. It was a lot of fun.

2012-06-14 03:14:04 PM
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.

StrangeQ: /seriously, it's a naked human being. Am I supposed to be impressed?


Be hosest. Some of the naked women ARE very impressive. God (or Goddess) does not bless everyone in the same ways.

A beautiful, sexy woman is beautiful and sexy. It's a good thing to enjoy the sight of a particularly attractive woman naked.
