Zbone.com Background

The original Z Bone website was started in October 26, 1995 as an exercise to see if I could build a real website.  In 1997, we moved to zbone.com. From there, somehow, it kept growing and within a few years, it became the Los Angeles one stop-shop for strip club information.

Between 2006 and 2009, I became more serious about updating and maintaining the website. However, the number of clubs had grown from about 27 to almost 150 and it became increasingly obvious that it would be impossible for me to review all of these clubs by myself in a timely manner.

After 2009, there was basically no updating of the website for 2 years and zbone.com became stagnant.

What I missed from the old days was the comradery and close-knit feeling of the original website, which had slowly dissipated over the years. In 2011, I decided to re-boot the website from scratch with a new social networking zbone.com 2.0 to bring back the feeling from the original years of the website. With this new format that also includes groups, chat rooms, and more to come, I want more like minded people from the strip club industry and fans of the industry to join and participate.

Most importantly, I want you to have fun!


About Z Bone

Who or what is Z Bone? And why should you listen to his rants? Good question.

Z Bone is the nickname a dancer friend of mine gave me many years ago. I live in sunny Los Angeles, California. Even though LA is not known for the best strip clubs in the U.S., we have our fair share of good ones. I've been going to strip clubs for decades and Los Angeles strip clubs since the early 80's.

When I first started, I was a newbie wanting to find adventure and excitement. Now, I'm a seasoned professional who is somewhat jaded by the scene. It takes quite a show to get my juices flowing these days. After a while, most dancers look the same. It's all a blur.

Without exaggeration, I believe I have met hundreds of dancers and have dated more than a few. I am friends with a dozen or so, have had a few dancer girlfriends and a handful of dancer roommates at my "Stripper Hotel". I also associate with many employees of strip clubs (bouncers, DJs, and floaters) as well as several managers and owners. They know who I am and what I'm about. I can see things from their point of view as well as a customer's point of view.

I have seen clubs built, and clubs closed down. I have danced on the stage of several strip clubs, one while it was open with customers and made $6 from the dancers. I taught dancers how to do floor work and high mileage lap dances. However, I can't do pole work. I've tried.

I have testified in a criminal case involving strip club owners and workers. During the trial, the DA asked how many strip clubs I had been to. I wanted to sound conservative to the jury, so I replied, "Oh, about a dozen or so." I heard an audible gasp. The DA then said, "So would you consider yourself a strip club expert?" I replied, "Yes."  As physicist Niels Bohr once said, "An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field."

Over the years, I've been a regular in many clubs and 86-ed from a few. Officially, I am not 86-ed from any clubs right now.  However, I am more welcomed in some and less in others.

So when you read my rants, keep in mind who I am. What's true for me may not be true for you. Always measure and compare your own experiences with others. Don't just take my word for it. So get out there. Check it out. It's waiting for you.
