Help me hire a stripper for my friend's bachelorette party.

Stripping class for a bachelorette party in DC. Is there such a thing? How would I arrange it?

I was thinking - and so was the bride - that a fun pre-party (before hitting some bars) event at her bachelorette party would be to hire a female stripper who could give the group some basic lessons on doing a fun, sexy striptease for our men. In my mind, it would be pretty tame and we would keep our clothes on, we would just learn a few, um, tricks. Is there such a concept? Where would I find such a thing? It has to be DC.

I've heard of "strip tease" dance classes at a local dance studio (not in D.C.) that are taught in more of an exercise format; I imagine they're common. You might call around and see if you can hire an instructor for a private (and racier) session. Obviously you don't want to sound like you're propositioning someone.

Your best bet is to ignore the strip clubs. What you're looking for is a pole dancing instructor; do a search for "pole dancing" and you should be able to locate a pole dancing class in your area. I'm sure if you approached an instructor and asked for a private lesson for the bachelorette party, they'd be able to accommodate.

I am saying this as a straight guy who LOVES boobies and such, but the strip clubs in DC are super nasty and I dont think I would ever go in one again.

I think there's more to exotic dance than pole work, and most people aren't going to make the leap to put a pole in their house.

That said, the strip tease workout type teacher may be able to do a "chair dancing" session (it's like giving a lap dance without a lap) and some places do have portable party poles. Portable poles won't handle really "womanly" women, though...the weight limits are usually about 200lb. If you get an out call-only dancer, you might get a classier act than someone you'd find at a club... then again, you'll also pay more for it!

Actually, after logging in from home (dang NetNanny) I think Allison's second link is the way to go. I take pole classes and wish there was something with that much variety here!
