The Strip Club

I should preface this post by saying that I have neither the interest nor the financing for opening a strip club.

However, today I thought of a great name for a strip club:


Clever, eh? Here’s the catch: I can’t figure out if it’s a good name for a strip club where people watch nearly naked women dancing on stage or nearly naked men dancing on stage.

Picture yourself driving down the highway through East St. Louis. You see a huge neon sign suspended over a nearby building that reads, “Indulgents.” What type of strip club do you think it is? Would bachelor parties go there or bachelorette parties?

    I’m partial to the male strip club idea, but that could be because one of the books I recently sold features a hero who owns a club called the All Nude Male Revu. My editor actually balked at first, claiming women would never buy a romantic comedy in which the hero owns a strip club. When she realized it was a strip club with MALE dancers, she was all for it. Go figure.

    Love the name Indulgents either way!

      It certainly is a good twist–although, really, anyone who owns a strip club must be a pretty interesting character. 🙂

  2. I vote for half-naked men, because of the end of the word “gents.” I could also make an argument for the word “in,” though that might be a bit unseemly. Far be it from me to suggest that either sex is “dul.” I also vote for half-naked men, because I’m a woman and you gave me a choice… At that point what you call the place became secondary, though I agree the name is clever.

      Perhaps it’s the straight male in me, but I simply cannot fathom why anyone would want to watch naked men dance on stage. Women have artistically beautiful bodies; men are utilitarian lumps of bone and muscle.

      • What’re you gonna do? If you’re a heterosexual woman, utilitarian lumps of bone and muscle are the best eye candy you can hope for. However, you make a good point; eyes do a lot more for me than naked flesh. And there does come a time when looking at guys half my age feels a bit grotesque.

    I don’t think half the people attending will get the pun
