Aussie Heat is the Hottest of the Vegas Hunk Shows
[Note the author on this review is Karen Snyder (my wife). I did go to the show with her, but as I didn’t get any lap dances from the hunks, I asked her to write the review as she had the full experience. I can confirm that the dancing talent of the performers was definitely the best I’ve seen of the male strip shows. The audience is primarily female but there were a number of couples present and even a few male (I presume gay) couples. If you take your wife or girlfriend you won’t feel like the only guy in the crowd. — A.S.]
Aussie Heat takes the classic male strip show to a whole new level with gorgeous guys who can actually dance, doing erotic break dancing, street dance, and hip-hop moves on stage while they peel down to briefs or g-strings.
The whole troupe also comes down into the audience more than once to give actual hands-on, full-fledged, high-contact lap dances to pretty much every woman in the theater who wants one, which was pretty much every woman in the theater when I was there.
For years I’ve been asking my husband why men like lap dances so much. Now that I’ve had a charming, buff semi-nude man straddling my lap and doing hip thrusts, I finally get it. Best of all, the guys looked like they were having a lot of fun.
The show included the usual audience participation numbers–get a volunteer on stage, feel her up, bend her over, dry hump her–all while she’s lit up with excitement and the crowd is going wild. But this show, with its younger, hipper audience, takes the mock sex right up to the edge of what a show can probably do without the vice cops coming in to bust you.
How does it compare to the other Vegas male strip shows? While the Chippendales dancers could be doing their G-rated routines in Jubilee, and the Thunder from Down Under hunks, while adorable, offer a PG kind of Harlequin Romance erotic that you could take your granny to see, Aussie Heat gets at least an R rating. Aussie Heat is the first male strip show I’ve been to where I actually got turned on. It’s hot.
The show is housed at Planet Hollywood’s V Theater. It offers theater seating rather than tables, but the rows of seats are spaced wide enough to allow the guys to penetrate (ha!) to even the middle of the rows for the lap dances, so no one gets left out. The theater is small enough that every seat is good and close to the stage. Even from the stage the guys made eye contact with me at least a half-dozen times during the show, and I was in the next to back row.
The production is simple–few props and costume changes, and believe me, it didn’t matter. The emphasis was on the guys’ electric high-energy dancing and erotic interplay with the audience.
This is now the Vegas hunk show I’ll be recommending to friends. I hope I have an excuse to go back soon.
Aussie Heat plays at the V Theater at Planet Hollywood on Thursday through Sunday nights only, at 10:30 p.m. You can buy tickets here. Go early and have a drink in the comfortable bar and lounge area before the show starts.
The guys are available for pictures, autographs and flirtation (those accents! yum) after the show–if you get a picture, your donation goes to Opportunity Village, an organization that provides job training and placement to people with intellectual disabilities.
