The thread in the Q&A forum about what to do when a dancer is with another customer reminded me of a story that I thought I would share. Let me begin by noting that there are two kinds of potentially annoying or awkward 'triangles' that can develop in a strip club:
(1) Two regular customers are present and both seeking the attention of the same dancer.
(2) One customer has two of his favorite regular dancers present at the same time.
What's worse than being in either of the above situations? When you have to deal with both in the same night!
Some time ago, I went to my favorite club in order to get some dances with my ATF. When I arrived, she was occupied with another patron, who was obviously a regular. I've dealt with this situation before where one only had to bide one's time for an hour or so before the dancer is freed up. However, this guy wasn't content with just getting a dance or a single session in the VIP. He sat with the dancer for a long time, then got a few dances, then sat with her some more, and then got different kinds of dances, repeatedly for several hours. He was clearly spending a lot of money, and this is not a bad situation for my ATF. So, after some time I departed the club, slightly annoyed, but wishing all the best to this lovely girl. I thought that if I avoided going to the club on the same night of the week that I would avoid this problem.
So, a couple of weeks later, I go back on a different night. Same other guy is already there with my ATF. Argh! This time, I was intent on getting dances. This time, my ATF noticed me and I could tell by observing from across the room that several times she told this other patron that I was waiting for a dance from her. This just led the guy to buy more dances, leading me to wait probably even longer. At some point in the evening, the dancer was callled to the stage and I duly took a seat at the rail. I tipped well, but this other guy was clearly aiming to outdo me or something, and tipped an obscene amount of money. The dancer spoke to me a bit while on stage, and I let her know everything was cool. Really, while I wanted a dance, I am fine with being the cause of her making a lot more money. I resolved that I was going to stay as late as it took to get a dance, and waited more or less patiently for another hour and a half.
Now, at this point one of my other favorite dancers, who had not been at this club for a while, was called to the stage. She gave a phenomenal stage show, for which I was front and center. This dancer then came to me after the dance, and asked it I wanted a dance. I let her know that I definitely did. She had to take care of something in the back, so I waited for her near the dance area. Just then, the first dancer, who I'd been waiting for all night, approaches me, now having been freed of the other customer. She begins to chat me up. We have good rapport, and I like chatting with her, but knew that it would be awkward to tell her I wasn't going to have a dance with her then, especially when I had clearly been waiting for her for several hours! So, she asks me if I'm ready for a dance, and I tell her that I am waiting for someone else who I already agreed to dance with. Just then, the second girl walks up and the two dancers glare at each other with looks that would make the devil tremble. I tell the first dancer that I will see her later, and she walks away, clearly chagrinned.
Now, I know that most long-time strip club goers have to deal with one of these kinds of triangles at some time or other. But, having to deal with both on the same night is quite a rare thing, I would imagine.
OMG. Thank god, I've never had this situation happen to me. I think I would just leave and never come back to that club. I call the multiple dancer problem "Dancer Politics" in my old posts. I'm not patient enough to wait so I've never had the other problem. But both at the same time!? Damn. Nice post.
See my old post:
try this test... Take every girl who comes up to you, and make some quick chit-chat. Just as you see some rapport building, and before she sits down...say "Actually, I must say that I was waiting for another dancer" Watch her expression change, she will turn off and then make a quick exit. I've had some that will keep hangin on and they sit down anyway...once in a while they turn into some really interesting convos.
Most of the girls that i have turned down in such a way have always continued to be respectful, nice & friendly. Sometimes the girl wil come back and say something like"I know you are waiting on your friend but how about we chat until she's ready?"
A couple of girls i know are like that, and i think it benefits the customer & the club. It give the cluba a more relaxed atmosphere when the customers are being engaged with the dancers than when the dancers are sitting together in a corner ignoring the customers.
I've had that kind of triangle problem happen. Whoever you have a dance with you might piss of someone else. Never waited that long for anyone though. The worst was the Body Shop. If there were 5 girls there at least 4 of them are going to be pissed at you. So I'd stay away.
