Male Strippers – The Reality
We recently did an interview with the Savage Men Cover Model Male Revue male strippers and we were pretty surprised about what these male strippers do in there every day lives. Our research showed that a persons first reaction to male exotic dancers is less than positive but what they don’t understand is that most of them are just like you and me. Although they may work at a male striptease shows their real professions might totally surprise you.
Professional Male Strippers – No Kidding
We interviewed over 68 male strippers, massage men, back up male exotic dancers and the owners of the Savage Men Cover Model Male Revue over a six month period as a lead up to a new HBO reality series based on the lives of male strippers and found these men not only to be sexy but charming, personable and down right humble. Amongst the group we found doctors, teachers, electrical engineers, nurses, chiropractors, construction workers, airline pilots, wall street brokers, realestate agents, financial advisors, mortgage brokers, lawyers, models, actors, musicians, trucking company owners, videographers and a restaurant owner.We could hardly believe the credentials and job positions these male strippers had and after verifying their BA degrees and calling their places of work we were ready to sit down and get the inside scoop on why and how they became male strippers.
Doctors, Lawyers and Models Oh My!
Although we verified all of the male strippers credentials some of them were a little reluctant to use their real names or give us more than a brief interview. They seemed very secure in how they lived their lives but realized the possible back lash from people whom would view what they did differently from the reality of their job. The following was a conversation taken at the Savage-Men male strip show in New York right before the show was to begin. “When we are not dancing at our New York male strip clubs for all of the crazy bachelorette parties I pretty much like to kick back at home with a beer and catch a baseball game,” states Ryan Reeves, a professional lawyer snd male stripper with Savage Men over the last three years. “I really consider myself a homebody when I am not doing my thing.” “When we work that’s my night out.” jokes Stallion, a mortgage broker and another male stripper with the Savage Men. “We meet so many women at our male strip shows it’s almost insane.” states Stallion, a rather tall and muscular male exotic dancer that has been working now for about ten years as a male exotic dancer at night while helping people secure loans for their dream homes by day. “If you are looking for a bachelorette party idea New York then you should look no further then coming to see us,” laughs Long shot Louie, who plays a police officer in the show and in real life. “We put all the bachelorettes on stage and gear our whole acts to the bachelorette.” The other night Louie was doing his cop routine and this drunken bachelorette tried to rip down his G-string states Stallion they all laugh “Being a male stripper is not easy but she was pretty hot I almost let her do it anyway.” “Most of the ladies that come to our male strip show New York are pretty crazy,” states Nikko, the master of ceremonies and recently on the hit TV show CSI New York.
Richard, a full time cardiologist at a major hospital had put himself through medical school working nights at Savage-Men in Atlantic City. He was reluctant to be interviewed but finally opened up after about thirty minutes and a few beers. “They call me Doctor Love,” states Richard and for good reason. At 34 years old and making over 500k a year we were perplexed as to why he still preforms as a male exotic dancer.
Most doctors lead very normal but stressful lives, constantly dealing with traumas and situations that could leave you numb to reality. Richard uses his talents as a male stripper to vent. He says that when women find out that he is a doctor they flock to him. He realizes what the real motive is behind their interests and this becomes a real turn off. In the dating world he finds it hard to be truthful with his medical profession but instead tells women who he meets that he is a male nurse which usually leads them to be less than enthusiastic about continuing their relationship. He sometimes feels he is better off just telling them he is a male exotic dancer because it seems so exciting and if the girl is down to Earth with that and can still relate to me and not a society status then he breaks the news that he is also a doctor, but only after the fifth date.
Officer Night Stick
Long Shot Louie also know as officer night stick is a real Philadelphia police officer on the force for twelve years. Born in the suburbs of Philadelphia Louie was the youngest of five and by the time it was his turn to go to collage the family had run out of money so he decided to join the military collage tuition program. He moonlighted as a male stripper up to that point but could not make enough to put himself through collage. While in the military he served a four year term. When he came home to Philadelphia he had seen his once presigious neighborhood take a turn for the worst. With crime up at record levels and Louie decided to take the law into his own hands. Louie ran into a male dancer he knew in Atlantic City while attending a family weekend at the Jersey shore. While waiting for the Philadelphia police department to accept him he decided he could make a little side money working as a male stripper which spawned the birth of officer night stick.
Louie still works as by day as a police officer and nights at the male strip clubs. He says when people at the male strip clubs find out that he is around it brings a sort of order to the place. He takes his job seriously, both of them.
Producing a Male Strip Show
Steve Savage, a former New York City police officer has been running this top rated male strip show in New York along with his partner Tracy James, a real international male model with over 10 thousand print, TV and commercial jobs to date. Both owners are in such great shape and look like then can perform right now and if they had to, they probably would. The main thing about our New York Male Review is we totally cater to our clientele, “Most of which are repeat customers.” states Tracy James. “We have male strippers from all over the country and always look to improve our show,” states Steve Savage. “Also the most important thing we have at the Savage Men Cover Model Male Revue is that even though we have our creative disagreements we still feel we are like family.” states Tracy.
Producing a two hour high energy show with lights, sound effects and choreography can be very taxing. Hours of video editing and music samples have to be right on point with what is happening on the main stage.
The two of them now employ over 68 male strippers, massage men and emcees. Steve and Tracy take what they do in stride and treat thier employees like best friends. We noticed everyone we spoke to had nice things to say about them as bosses. There does not seem to any sign of competitiveness amongst any of the dancers but instead a kind of old friends type of relationship.
They have expanded their productions to Hollywood Florida and now have an additional show inside the Hardrock Casino every week. HBO has a trailer on youtube promoting the Savage-Men and their new upcomming reality series.
