There are many questions in the world of strip clubs but I seem to get the same ones a lot. I have collected questions regarding strip clubs, clubbing, dancers, and even this website, and put them into this FAQ page. There's no way that I can cover everything here but it's a good way for you to get started in getting to know more about this industry and subject matter.
Please check here and read carefully before you ask me about something already answered here.
Thanks for conserving bandwidth on the Internet.
The entire original website is archived at:
All the interactive areas are no longer available in the archive and nothing can be posted but you can use it as a reference for all the old clubs that are now closed.

You can use the general site search which is located at the top right of the members Home page. If you are looking for a specific club, you can go to "Page" then type the name of the club in the Page search box. You can also click on "Browse Pages" to search alphabetically.
It was started in October 26, 1995 but the domain name was obtained in 1997. Since 2011, we have re-booted zbone.com to a social networking site.
This could be caused by one of many factors. During peak periods, the entire Internet can get bogged down. Sometimes your ISP can become slow for whatever reason. The zbone.com server can be slow because of extra traffic as well. To see the actual bandwidth of your Internet connection, go to speedtest.net.

I get asked why there are no pictures of me on the website. The answer: I'm shy. Actually, I am anonymous because I don't want club owners and managers to be able to recognize me when I come into the club for a review.
I sometimes get email from people who tell me that they met me at a club. I do not tell people who I am so the person or people you met were impersonating me. I really don't care if people impersonate me but they should be aware that some owners, managers and other industry workers are not zbone.com friendly. Without going into details, I can tell you that it's not safe to say that you are associated to this website at certain clubs. Although currently, I am not 86ed from any clubs that I am aware of, I am definitely less welcomed at some clubs for various reasons that I do not care to elaborate on.
Why, I go to strip clubs. What else?
Originally, I was a poster on alt.sex.strip-clubs and started posting Los Angeles strip club reviews there. One of the other posters there thought that it would be a good idea to put the reviews on a website so that it would be easier to find. I thought that it would be a good way for me to learn HTML so I decided to take him up on his idea. Once I got started, it just kept going. Most of the features I added (e.g. chat room, bulletin board, review board) were both to make the website more popular by having better features and also to learn more programming for websites.
In 2011, I decided to re-boot the entire website with a social network based one.
Usually no less than 3 times a week. Sometimes 4 or 5.
Yes, I used to think that would be cool. Then when I got to know the owners, I realized that I did not want to open my own club. It's a lot harder than it looks. It's a lot of head-aches. Basically, anytime you deal with the public (in any business), there's going to be trouble. Then add to that, the dancers, and you are pretty much asking for it. I find that it's much more pleasurable to visit the clubs of other people and let them worry about things.
No. However, if you'd like to be a moderator, please contact me.

Your Mileage May Vary. In other words, "Individual results may vary". Just because I saw a bunch of good looking dancers one night or got nasty dances from one dancer, does not mean that will always be the case. Like anything else, always use the motto: Buyer beware.
The next question is: What is "YMWV"? Your mileage WILL vary. This is the term I use when I know things vary for sure at the club.
For this and other acronyms, look at my glossary.
You can email me via the contact form.
I normally reply to all email sent to me even if the email doesn't contain questions. It's possible that I did not receive your email because you addressed it incorrectly, or something was wrong with your server or mine.
Another possibility is that the text for "subject" was too generic and I may have deleted it thinking it was spam. Do not email me with subjects like "hi" or "question" or "please read". Please realize that I get about 200 spams per day so I have to go through them fairly quickly. I only look at email that looks legit and skip and delete the ones that look like spam. A good subject would be something like "Orange county club question for zbone." There's no way I would mistake that email for spam.
Yet another possibility is that if you emailed me from a free email account (e.g. hotmail, yahoo), sometimes my spam blocker thinks that it's spam. Also, if you include an attachment, sometimes my spam blocker thinks it's a virus. Therefore, if you include an attachment, please send a second email that tells me that you sent another email with an attachment.
Note that some anti-spam services on many ISPs and free email services (e.g. AOL, hotmail) may consider email from "webmaster" to likely be spam and may delete it. Also, many people delete email from "webmaster" without reading it. These are some reasons why you may not have received my email. For detailed information on how to get around your spam blocker (called whitelisting), please read this document.
Also, I often receive email which when I reply to, comes back as undeliverable. In this case, there is no way for me to contact you. If you don't hear back from me, first test to make sure your reply email address is correct by emailing yourself, then reply back to it. When you have verified that this works, email me again.
Alternatively, you can post a message on the Forum under the topic "Website Related >> Support."
No. I can contact every registered user via the website if necessary.
"Rating" dancers is very subjective. Personally, I like faces. If a dancer has a really pretty face and average body, I will rate her higher than a dancer that has a ugly face and good body. I know many readers will disagree with me on this because dancers are usually rated on their body but that's how I am. But obviously, the dancer with the pretty face AND good body wins out, period.
Moreover, I am partial to "back" more than tops. Therefore, a really hot back will rate higher in my book than really big top. On rare occasions, I have seen a non-enhanced perfect top and I will rate that high.
As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Therefore, dancer "rating" is in the laps of Z Bone.
Generally speaking, the more contact, the nastier rating I give. Higher ratings would indicate more skin to skin contact or manipulations by either party. Lower scores indicate little or no contact.
Basically, the mileage rating only indicates the amount and length of contact possible with "most" of the dancers. Of course, as always YMWV since one dancer at one club may do much more or vice versa (may not do anything). The rating gives you an idea of what the club tolerates from the dancers.
Lastly, I'm often asked: "Does a 4 rating mean the dancer will go home with me?" Answer: No.
Originally, I was not able to have a database driven website that could sort the current nasty factor ratings and generate a list for the reader, and therefore, I didn't have such a list. Now that I could do it, there's no reason other than laziness. I decided that not everyone is interested in such a list and the amount of work involved for me was not worth the trouble. Also, that would be a simple hit list for LAPD vice. Why ask for a bust?
Sometimes a new club will open and I won't hear about it right away. You can create a page for a new club by going to Page, then click on "Create Page."
As the name of my website says, this site is for strip clubs. I don't consider hostess clubs, massage parlors or escort services to be strip clubs.
TenFree now has his own separate website at hostessclub.info.
TenFree reports that Club Signature is now open as of July 1999 and is located at 1235 N. Vine in Hollywood. Their number is (323) 962-8825 and open at 8:00pm.
If you're interested in upscale Japanese hostess clubs, you might try Club Cha Cha in Torrance at (310) 370-9996.
As for escort services, TenFree says to try these websites:
and Thumper says to try:
For a more world wide travel sex guide, and review site, try:
For massage parlors, try:
If you are interested in private fantasy rooms with a naked woman, you might be interested in Eros Station.
There are no detailed descriptions of what a particular dancer does at a particular club on this web site. This is because some activities are not legal and the dancer and/or the club can be busted for these activities. I offer some vague references and you will have to figure it out for yourselves.
Moreover, please do not e-mail me asking for private information on dancers. Unfortunately, there have been cases of stalking and even physical harm to dancers from "fans". Therefore, no private information will be given out and dancers should always be very careful.
