or CFNM (Clothed Female, Naked Male) shows are some of the most popular
forms of women's entertainment. Since the 1980s, women have been screaming
and squirming in their seats at extravaganzas featuring male strippers,
and the enthusiasm for such entertainment doesn't look like abating.
Often known as male revues, or adult dance shows, male strip acts
usually feature a troupe of well-muscled good looking men dancing
while removing pieces of their outlandish outfits, but most do not
involve full male nudity. A thong and a hint of pubic hair is all
the audience get to glimpse.
women love it. Male strip shows are characterised by screaming, giggling,
tipsy throngs of everyday women, released from propriety for the night
and letting their hair down. It's an opportunity to turn the tables,
to ogle male flesh in the same way that men have ogled them for years.
It's an excuse to behave badly. It's a laugh.
It's also a celebration of female sexuality. There aren't many other
places where women can be so open about appreciating the male form,
or where it's accepted that women can be eager sexual beings.
Male strip shows are very different from the standard female
striptease act. Women will almost always watch in a group rather
than alone, and the shows are often staged in large theatres,
as opposed to the standard sleazy backstreet "Pink Pussycat"
venue. The emphasis is more on fun and feeling sexy, and everyone
is keen to point out how "tastefully" it's done.

are the best known group of male strippers. This troupe have been performing
since the early 80s and have spawned various clubs, travelling strip
shows and even TV shows. Manpower
is also well known. This group originated in Australia and found success
in the US and UK.
Male strippers found screen fame in 1997 when The
Full Monty became a box office smash hit. The film is about
unemployed men who decide to go where the Chippendales won't, and take
it all off (the "full monty"). Despite being flabby, unfit,
average guys, the show is a huge success, and, perhaps ironically, the
men discover dignity through stripping.
The Full Monty went on to inspire all sorts of amateur male strip shows,
often performed for charity, all over the world.
Male strippers have become something of a tradition at bachelorette
parties (sometimes known as hen's nights). Often the stripper is booked
as a surprise, although sometimes to bride-to-be will pay for him herself.
"I didn't want to miss out, you know," says Jackie, remembering
her own bachelorette party where an impressive black man stripped for
her 35 guests. "I wanted to make it a memorable night, and the
girls just loved it. Besides, who knows what Rick got up to at his party!"
In Britain, male stripping is known as CFNM (Clothed Female, Naked Male)
and is extremely popular there. They even have a website devoted to
videoing CFNM shows and putting them online. You'll find heaps of pics,
profiles and movies of CFNM strippers at Serial
Thrillas British Strippers.
It would be fair to say that male strippers aren't about to go away;
indeed, their popularity is growing. As women become more assertive
about their sexuality, we can expect a greater number of male strip
shows and clubs popping up across cities and towns everywhere.
